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 […]

Picking Up The Slack

Sunday – Back to my home church’s Sunday Service after my ~1.5 month vacation. Monday – Still jet-lagging and woke up early, went for a morning run after my usual morning routine.  It was my first run since May, could only complete ~2.5k and could barely catch my breath afterwards, totally out of shape. Tuesday […]

CNY Eve 2018

Had been spending most of the week cleaning up the studio.  Finished cleaning up the main work area and the art area, but haven’t really touched the DIY area, that have to wait till I get back to the studio after the CNY holiday. My dad called me today telling me that my sister-in-law’s brother […]

(Happy) New Year 2018

Slept early last night, briefly woke up at midnight by noisy fireworks and neighbours’ celebrations.  I could never understand why the HK Government constantly pour so much money in ephemeral and polluting firecrackers while so many of its citizens are struggling to make ends meet in this economically polarised city.  I actually slept pretty well […]

Half Marathon

Completed my half marathon run, 2hr 18min, my personal record! ✌🏻 The half marathon was not the main reason for this trip, I hesitated to register when my friend told me about it after I booked my flight because I stopped my running practice for 3 months due to the hot weather in HK. With […]

Childhood Neighborhood Visit

Got up really early and made a rehearsal drive to the bus station where I’ll be taking the bus downtown to the half-marathon starting point tomorrow morning. Still very early afterwards, I decided to go visit my childhood neighborhood. Started a long walk in the nature trail at around the time I’ll be starting the […]

More Hospitability

Been back to my “home and native” land for about 10 days already, and I’m still constantly experiencing friends’ warm welcome and hospitality! Had 3 different meet and catch-up meals with old friends over the pass weekend, there were lots of joy and laughters. Many friends seeing how much I missed Canada suggested I move […]

Thanksgiving

Joined Sunday service at my home church here in Toronto, many things and people seemed the same as before, strangely felt like I had travelled back in time to 6 years ago. Had lunch with a few of my old fellowship sisters afterwards, the 6 years of separation didn’t seem to have distanced our relationships, […]

Hot Days!!

The weather is so hot these days that one immediately starts sweating within 5 min. of walking outside.  I finally turned on the air-conditioner at home for the first time last weekend, as environmentally friendly as I hoped to be, I seriously couldn’t sleep without it. I thought I could still do my morning run this week […]
