Weekly Update

Caught a cold early this week, had been living most of the week with a runny nose and unwanted tiredness.  Despite the need to rest more, there were some social meet ups I promised to join the week before: Mon: volunteered for the first time with Lizzie Bee to learn how Art can be applied […]

(Starving) Artist, seriously?

It was back in April when I attended my first ever Maker Faire in HK.  I took the opportunity to explore the late Zaha Hadid designed building, slowly strolling and ascending the floors before stumbling upon a workshop for DIY bookbinding.  One of the instructors gave out postcards she designed, and it just so happened […]

Goodbye First .5 of 2017

Another quarter’s gone and the first half of 2017 passed.  What have I done with the time that God had entrusted me with? For the last couple of months, I had finally met up with all the friends I promised to meet and catch-up with during CNY.  I planned to meet them earlier, but my […]

Creative Monday

Finished my Monday evening barista classes last week, back to the luxury of freely indulging in creative things that fills the empty part of my soul on this Creative Monday! Watched a documentary of one of my favourite artists – Vincent Van Gogh.  Learnt that he dabbled in many different jobs before settling into a career […]

New Daily Routine

In the last couple of weeks, I’ve started a new daily (almost) habit of practicing calligraphy and portraiture drawing using a brush pen.  As much as I love doing art, I’m still very skeptical about the idea of becoming a full-time (starving) artist. Since my uncle got really sick earlier this year and later passed […]

UW Alumni TBOD

Attracted by the presentation title Science & Entrepreneurship, I decided to join a formal alumni event of my former alma mater for the first time after moving back to HK for 7 or 8 years.  The talk was basically a presentation of the facts and milestones of the university’s initiative in incubating tech startups in the university town […]

(Starving) Artist?

It’s been nearly a year since I had my first calligraphy class.  It all started from a calligraphy course ad at my residence’s clubhouse, I only hinted about trying it out and my dad immediately called up his old friend (also my old family doctor) who happened to be a calligraphy master.  He called me up […]

Meaning of Life?

My uncle’s (father’s younger brother) liver cancer has relapsed and my aunt was told to prepare for the worst.  It’s time like this that makes me stop and question about the meaning of life. Just when I was starting to procrastinate about the many things still unfinished before the end of the year, my uncle’s news […]

Movies and Dreams

After the exhausting craft fair on the Sept. 10th weekend, I thought about going on a short vacation to re-energize myself before getting busy again for the new Fall “co-op term”, but abandoned the idea as I don’t know how to justify the cost of going alone and without a purpose.  Did a brief stay-cation […]

Starving for Art

I felt a sudden urge to do art recently.  I think it all started on the Sunday morning when I arrived early at JCCAC before the craft fair.  I arrived there after Sunday service, with a couple of idle hours before the start of fair, I slowly strolled around the quiet building.  Passed by many […]
