Back to (Passive) Social…

The past week had been an unusually social one since the third wave of the pandemic hit us in early July – had dinner with a few fellowship brothers on Tue, a friend’s brief studio visit and mom’s and sister’s bday dinner on Thu, and met a friend’s friend on Sat to introduce her to […]

Back to Social?

As soon as the government relaxed the social distancing measures to allow as many as 4 ppl to meet, the city seems to have livened up almost immediately. I had dim sum lunch with my parents for the first time since the 3rd pandemic broke out in July. Also took the opportunity to farewell a […]

Back To School

Resumed my weekly calligraphy class after stopping a couple of months due to the pandemic. We went to have lunch with our 93 y/o ex-classmate after class, the six of us had to split into 3 tables due to the still effective social-distancing measures. Happy to see my elderly classmate and teacher both healthy and […]

1/2 Work From Home

The week started off with the sudden crazy rampage of Appledaily by hundreds of police, a complete disregard of the freedom of press. I remember asking my sister in HK awhile back if she’ll consider moving back to Canada, she didn’t like the idea, but said it might be inevitable if Appledaily dies. I didn’t […]

Work from Home (part 2)

Worked from home for another week (mostly). Almost finished and ready to submit the deTour proposal. Really hope that this collaboration work will be accepted and can see the light of day. With the deTour proposal out of the way and the pandemic slightly easing off (down to double digit confirmed cases for last 7 […]

Work From Home (again)

Was still on the fence early in the week as to whether to move back with my parents amid the increasing severity of the pandemic in my new home’s neighborhood. Decision was made for me on Wednesday as a confirmed COVID-19 case was reported in my building and my family unequivocally wanted me to move […]

3rd Wave Hitting Hard

Our city is finally feeling the blow of the COVID-19 pandemic with this 3rd wave spreading like wildfire in the community. The daily number of people infected constantly rises to a record high of slightly over a hundred today. Our stupid government decided to restrict restaurants to serve takeouts only from 6pm-5am as though the […]

3rd Wave

Just when I was about to restart life from the second half of 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic suddenly got worse and a bit out of control, this came after 21 days of zero local infected cases! What happened?! After attending church last week for the first time since CNY, Sunday worship returned to online this […]

Let’s Start Over

Finally returned church for worship today after many months of attending it online from home in my pajamas. Many b&s stopped by to say hello. Some wanted to initiate conversations, but I feel a little uncomfortable and shy like a newcomer. I also returned to fellowship for the first time on Friday since CNY. The […]

Social Week

Have had an unusually social week during these social-distancing times. On Thursday, I even met up with 2 separate friends and had 3 total hours of phone conversations on 2 separate calls, ended up not setting foot in the studio the whole day! I purposely scheduled all the meetups this week because I wanna hear […]
