Independence… Restarted

During a time when the mere hint of independence seemed taboo in our city, I moved back to my minimalist independent unit after the 3-months long third wave pandemic that claimed the lives of about a hundred individuals (mostly elderly). Originally planned to move next week instead, but an argument with my mom hastened the […]

Mid-Autumn Festival

The Mid-Autumn Festival this year coincided with China’s National Day. With political conflicts piling up and unresolved and a pandemic easing but never seems to cease, the atmosphere this year seemed worst for the 10 years since I returned to HK. There was no celebration to speak of other than eating a moon cake for […]

Readying for Q4

Continued with the studio cleanup this past week. Experimented with a new way to use up the accumulated popsicle sticks scraps to make boxes and a few more pallet models. After weeks of sporadic cleanup sessions, the studio should now be more or less ready for new projects in the last quarter of a not […]

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 […]

Interesting Turn of Events

Early this past week a few pro-democracy leaders were arrested for suspecting rioting on July 21st last year. One of them actually broadcasted live during the event and was beaten by gangs of white shirts in front of the camera, many Hongkongers watched the livestream and had trouble sleeping. I remember vividly of watching the […]

Work From Home

Worked from home the entire week, only went back to the studio on Sat. to do some prototyping. Caught up with my Inktober52 cartoons, annual daily devotions is now less than 1 week behind instead of 3, and made considerable progress on the deTour collaboration project. Could honestly say that I did the best I […]

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 […]
