Hot Days!!

The weather is so hot these days that one immediately starts sweating within 5 min. of walking outside.  I finally turned on the air-conditioner at home for the first time last weekend, as environmentally friendly as I hoped to be, I seriously couldn’t sleep without it. I thought I could still do my morning run this week […]

Running

12.35k!  The cloudy cool weather certainly helped, thankful. I was thinking the world will be a better place if I can accomplish today’s training. Will icebergs stop melting? Atmospheric CO2 recede below 400ppm levels? Will terrorists repent and become good guys? Probably not. But I suppose some dumb optimism wouldn’t hurt.

Running

Planned to do a 7k practice run this morning, but could only run 4k, felt defeated.  I think there were 2 possible reasons for the upset, one was that I got ambitious and used up a lot of the strength at the beginning of the run, and second was the scorching sun. It was 30 […]

Creative Monday

It was public holiday, but without any other plans, I decided to go back to the studio and stick to my weekly Creative Monday ritual. I read another year of Calvin & Hobbes, it was a bit of a revelation seeing Mr. Bill Watterson touched on the topic of greenhouse gases back in 1987!  Yes, […]

Studio Renovation V

Day 5 – Set up my art supplies, planted a row of plants (mainly succulents brought from home), and started cleaning up.  Hope to finish this little renovation project tomorrow. Before renovating my studio, I sat in on a public forum at my Alma Mater in the morning.  It was about climate change from HK’s […]

Spring

Took a slow walk home after lunch, I noticed all the brightly colored flowers dotting everywhere in the neighborhood.  Spring has arrived. The truth is, this past Winter didn’t really feel like Winter at all, temperature never dropped below 10 degrees.  Can I blame this on Climate Change?

Extremely Hot Week

Hot weather warning had been issued every single day this week!  Didn’t seem to be sleeping too well for the last few nights even though I turned on A/C, and I felt as though I was suffering from a persistent light fever during the day.  Checked the climate data of HK, and there’s a good […]

Crazy Weather

The temperature was close to 40 degrees (with humidity accounted) in the afternoon.  Had to stay indoor where air-conditioning is provided, so I went to the mall to shop for a wedding gift for my friend in HK.  Luckily, I found something that’s not “Made in China”!  The Ice Cap tasted particularly good in the […]

Japan’s Earthquake

The air seems particularly hot and stuffy today.  Went to church, dim sum with family, watered my plants, tended my aquarium, and killed hours at night sitting in front of the TV – a typical Sunday routine.  It must have been years that I have the habit not to do any “work” on Sundays (had […]

Flood in Queensland

Just read the story of Noah’s Ark for my daily devotion, images of the Queensland’s flood from the media kept flashing in my head. I pray for those who are suffering and struggling to stay alive. God, may you remember your everlasting covenant with humankind when a rainbow appears. Please have mercy on your creation.
