Weekly Update…

Skipped a week of updates because I was too tired last Sunday after joining the city’s rally against the extradition to mainland rule. The rally had the largest number of protesters since the Umbrella Movement, there was a sense of hope I felt afterwards. But will our stubborn Government listen to their people? There are […]

Weekly Update

The past week was another rollercoaster ride of highs and lows… It started off on a light happy note with the ex-Chief of HK appearing on a creative ad on the front page of a local newspaper. It got me thinking about advertising, crowdfunding, freedom of press, etc Mom entered and stayed in the hospital […]

Weekly Update

The past week was filled with highs and lows: Woke up on Monday with a strong urge of going back to school and study landscape architecture, it had to do with the dream, but I couldn’t recall the faintest content. It felt like a calling from above and the more I thought about the possibility […]

Recovered and Socializing

Had been monitoring my resting heart rate (bpm) closely since I suffered from the bad flu. It has always been considerably constant rating at around 60 bpm since I got my Fitbit about a year ago, so I never paid much attention to it. But since I got sick many weeks ago, I noticed that […]

Still Sick…

Still feeling sick – poor sleep quality, headaches, coughing, and short of breath. But I think it’s improving – less frequent wake ups in the middle of the night and less severe headaches. A few people had told me in the past few weeks that I looked much thinner. I don’t have the habit of […]

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 […]

Awaiting Storm…

Typing up this weekly entry in the studio as the whole city anxiously waits for the approaching super typhoon Mangkhut… Started off this week with a little family storm of my own.  Had a big argument with my mom on Monday over dinner.  It was a recurring argument about me not willing to eat the […]

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 […]
