New Year Resolutions

Took me awhile, finally made time to sit down and come up with my list of resolutions for the new year 2020. Looking back at my 2019 resolutions, I only managed to check off 2 or 3 resolutions and the rest were either still in progress or left untouched.  Nonetheless, 2019 had been an unexpectedly […]

Holiday Season

The atmosphere in the city this holiday season seems to be the worst one for the past 10 years since I returned from Canada – Silent Night not so silent and Christmas Day seeing more chaotic protest news than about the birth of baby Jesus. There are a few things that lifted up my Christmas […]

6 Months of Protest

Joined another city protest with my sister and brother-in-law yesterday. It has been 6 months of social unrest since the 1-million-people strong peaceful protest on June 9th. The controversial extradition bill was finally withdrawn in September, but the uncountable protests in the past 6 months had revealed many more issues in our city including government […]

A Good Week

The past week was a good week, a rarity in recent months. Early on Monday, many Hongkongers woke up to the uplifting news about the big win of the pro-democracy camp in the district council election. I found out that my district is actually one of the most pro-Beijing districts and the candidate I voted […]

District Elections

As advised by many friends, I went to the poll station very early this morning, but the lineup was already very long as expected. I didn’t want to be late for church so I postponed my vote to later this afternoon, and there was zero lineup then (~1700). While writing this post, the radio news […]

More October Routines

Two weeks since my last update… Still continuing my Oct. inking routine, but only barely keeping up with the daily Inktober prompts. Pulled a rare all-nighter on 11th (Friday) in the studio to work on a Chinese calligraphy piece for competition, was super tired afterwards and took me a few days and many extra hours […]

Oct. New Routine

September ended and we’re already in the last quarter of 2019, will we see a good end entering 2020? Joining the Inktober challenge for the second year, I’ve begun a daily ink doodling routine. I’ve also been supplementing that with daily Chinese calligraphy practice using bible scriptures. Together with a calligraphy competition and a workshop […]

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 […]

Highlights of Past 2 Weeks

A little update of what’s been happening with me in the past 2 weeks… Completed setting up a new laser cutter in the studio and have done some preliminary testing. Submitted a “proposal” to an upcoming event with WWF HK in early Nov. Started cleaning up the studio and readying myself for an Oct. of […]

Weekend Art Retreat

Had the privilege to spend another wonderful weekend at the beautiful WWF Island House making art and meeting new and old friends. It was a super quiet weekend with very little visitors, likely due to our city’s ongoing protests and bad weather. It was somewhat expected and I wasn’t disappointed whatsoever. Every time I walked […]
