World Cup Craze

Every four years I transform myself into a soccer fan trying to catch the World Cup games at the most inconvenient times (I never seemed to be at the same time zone of the World Cup host countries).  I don’t usually watch soccer games, and it must be more than a year since I stopped […]

CNY’s Day

Was rather tired last night, deliberately turned off my phone and slept before midnight.  Slept pretty well.  Woke up at around 9am and did my daily devotion, then made coffee and had breakfast while turning on my phone and replying to the expected floods of CNY greeting messages. Had dim sum lunch with my family […]

Barista Exam & Cafe Hopping

A good friend was in the neighbourhood to do some work, I decided to take the meet up opportunity to try out some interesting cafes nearby.  We first went to a cafe that sells designer goods, but was disappointed seeing the “closed” sign at the door.  We saw employees having a meeting inside, they obviously […]

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 […]
