Life Under 2019-nCoV

Worked home for another week to save on masks. Besides eating and sleeping, much of my time was spent going through a Chinese dictionary of 4-letter phrases and practicing Chinese calligraphy by copying the relevant words for a long unfinished project. The dictionary was a gift from my dad when I moved back to Canada […]

2019-nCov Took Root

The novel coronavirus is no longer a threat, it has taken root in our city thanks to our CE’s stubbornness in not closing the Mainland borders. A tenth of our city’s medical staff went on strike but that didn’t perturb our arrogant CE’s decision. Facing the incoming virus from Mainland, our first line of protection […]

Oct. 1st, 2019

20191001 is a day to be remembered, not because of the 70th bday of PRC, but because it was the darkest day of our city’s lingering protest yet – an 18-yr-old protester was shot with live round by the HKPC at close range. I originally planned to join my friends for lunch in HK Island […]

Back From Vacation

Got home late last night (~11pm) from a 10-day vacation in Singapore with my family… It was my first time in SG, I was particularly taken away by its greenery everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. They truly live up to their “City in the Garden” reputation! It was a much needed vacation to rest my […]

A Day to Remember

On my 40th birthday, I slept in and didn’t wake up until near 0900. I planned to take the day off way before there was an open call to strike after the million people protest against the proposed China Extradition bill. I took my time to catch up on the daily news over breakfast. News […]

Exhibition Celebration

Had the Ink Obsession exhibition (opening) celebration on Saturday evening. I started feeling the butterflies in the stomach in the morning.
