Running Again

The hot summer days seem to have finally succumbed to the cool Autumn winds. It’s a good time to try picking up running again. I managed to kick my lazy butt out the door to run 3 times this week, could barely do 2.5k, but kickstarting the habit wins half the battle I suppose. My […]

Life and Death

Just finished reading a short book Morrie: In His Own Words. Was constantly thinking about my 90-yr-old classmate from my Tuesdays-with-Morrie-like calligraphy class. He’s good and well and I still feel blessed to seeing him at class every Tuesday morning. But over the ~2.5 years since I started learning calligraphy, I’ve been witnessing his hearing […]

After the Storm

Typhoon Mangkhut turned out to be as devastating as forecasted. Countless trees were fallen all over the city. Seeing the ravaged city streets feels a little apocalyptic, don’t recall seeing the city like this ever before. Luckily, no human lives were lost due to the storm. As the city recovers from the storm, my little […]

Back to HK

Arrived home yesterday afternoon on a rainy day.  Tired from the long haul flight, I napped immediately after showering.  Mom woke me up for an early dinner, I was still tired and having a little headache, didn’t have the appetite to eat much.  Slept early at around 9pm. Woke up at around 4am this morning […]

Started off the past week with volunteering at a Senior centre on Monday morning, the elderly seemed happy seeing me again and I’m happy that they still remember me and welcomed me to do Chinese calligraphy with them. Had lunch with my friend before I headed downtown to see the Banksy Exhibition and explored the […]

Mission Completed, Real Vacation Starts!

Barely slept last night, probably due to worries of not getting enough sleep to drive my parents and sister to the airport in the early morning. Worrying about not getting enough sleep is truly a self-fulfilling prophecy. At one point I did fall into a short but deep sleep. I dreamt that my dad found […]

3-Day Montreal Trip

We (my parents, sister, and me) tagged along my Toronto’s sister’s family of four to a 3-day weekend trip to Montreal, Quebec. My brother-in-law lived in Montreal for 4 or 5 years when he first emigrated to Canada with his family, so he knows the city pretty well. He took us to many places including […]

Weekly Update

This week flew by rather quickly, here are some highlights…  The weekly Monday afternoon volunteering with the elderly was canceled, I decided to go watch a movie (I Can Only Imagine) which turned out to be one of the most inspiring movies I’ve seen for quite some time! Had coffee roasting class in the evening. […]
