My BIG Day

Didn’t make a it a big fuss for my 39th birthday yesterday, but it was still rather memorable… Had my usual weekly calligraphy class in the morning, it just so happened that the last letter of the Thousand Words (千字文) was covered.  It had been more than a year since I learnt the first letter! […]

Random Thoughts from Wedding

Joined my parents, brother, and sister-in-law to a wedding banquet near our home last night.  It was the wedding of the son of late Mr. Kot.  I remember that around this time 2 years ago I was actually on the same ship with Mr. Kot during a cruise trip to Japan… Sitting at our table […]

Cafe Start-up Course

Finally started the 8-session (16 hour) cafe start-up course I registered back in Feb. last night.  The idea of opening a coffee shop took shape after my uncle passed away last year.  After my uncle’s death, I came to realize how meaningless my previous work was and began on a journey to heal myself via […]

Day Off

Our family and I visited my aunt for lunch. She reminded us that it’s a month short from the time my uncle passed away last year. This is the first CNY that my aunt celebrated without my uncle, she’s still not at all recovered from sadness and told us that she didn’t walk out of […]

Art for Food?

Valentine’s Day.  Was thinking about asking the girl I like out, but she said early this week she didn’t have the luxury to go to the annual CNY market this year, I’m just assuming she’s busy today as well?  Or is she dating someone else?  Actually, does she have a bf?  How can I be […]

Day Before 1st Marathon

Woke up at 4am, carried out my usual morning routine, and then strolled down to the MTR station. Passed the MTR station and continued my way to the park where I have been training for months. Did some warmup and started my run at 0635 sharp. That’s when I’ll start my 1st ever marathon tomorrow, […]

Baking Class

Got my friend to take me to a trial baking class last night.  It was my first ever cooking class, a very enjoyable experience.  There’s something magical about the process of making bread – mixing the raw ingredients, kneading the dough with your hands, patiently waiting for the yeast to ferment, then anxiously waiting more […]

A Blessed Trip

Been back to HK for 5 days, still a little jet-lagging, woke up at around 5am this morning even though I was able to stay awake past midnight before sleep. Life slowly getting back to normal in HK, but still very much reminiscing of my month-long blessed trip in Canada.  Looking back on the trip, […]
