Week of Meetups

Met up with my old fellowship b/s for dinner last night. Other than meeting some new kids, every b/s seemed more or less the same as 6+ years ago. Though the small fellowship hasn’t really grown over the last few years, and some b/s had switched churches or even stopped going to fellowship, our relationships […]

(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 […]

Readings and Recent Updates

Finished reading a couple of good books (Where’s God When It Hurts, Man’s Search for Meaning).  I’ve always avoided reading books on war, death, and suffering, and I would probably never have picked up and read those books if not for my uncle’s recent passing away. My uncle’s passing away seems to be transforming me still, […]

Animal Portraiture

After my uncle passed away more than 2 weeks ago, I seemed to have become more withdrawn, quiet, and serious.  I also seemed to have grown more conscious about the limit of our time in this world.  The question about life’s purpose also pops up more often in my mind these days, what does God […]

Starting Life Anew

After a week of mourning and using cartooning and bible scriptures to help myself emotionally cope with my uncle’s passing away, I wished to start life anew this week.  I started my running practice again, made 3 short morning runs over the week, the associated endorphins generated seemed to help.  I also started a new daily routine […]

Mourning… (end)

It was about this time last week when my uncle passed away.  I’ve since started a week long mourning by avoiding any kind of social gatherings including Sunday worship, calligraphy class, and fellowship.  The avoidance came natural as I have the habit of hiding myself when I’m down.  I’ve also tried out an unorthodox therapy […]
