Glimpse of Hope

Looking back this past week, seems like I had been pretty productive: made good progress on the ink art website fired up the laser cutter and prototyped some 1/10 models visited my woodworking friend in Tuen Mun to discuss the coming fair on 24th and possibly more future collaborations printed out the parts for the […]

#inktober… DONE!!

The feeling of finishing my last cartoon panel for the #inktober fest is comparable to finishing a marathon! It was no easy task to follow the random word prompt each day and come up with a cartoon panel that would fit coherently into a story. It was challenging yet fun. I took the opportunity to […]

Running Again

The hot summer days seem to have finally succumbed to the cool Autumn winds. It’s a good time to try picking up running again. I managed to kick my lazy butt out the door to run 3 times this week, could barely do 2.5k, but kickstarting the habit wins half the battle I suppose. My […]

Inktober Challenge

Decided to take on the #inktober challenge this week, had a lot of fun each day dreaming up and inking episodes of the Story of a (starving) Artist. I constantly think back to the book Bird by Bird and the chapter about how the writer disciplined herself to sit and write a small piece of […]

Reading and Writing

Spent unusually long amount of time immersing myself in books the past week. Finished reading two books, one on creative writing (Bird by Bird) and the other being a fictional novel about time (The Time Keeper). Never considered doing any writing myself, but Bird by Bird is one of those books you just can’t let […]

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 […]

Week of Friends’ Meetups (again)

Managed to meet and catch up with friends every day except Tue. in the past week. Including a couple more meetups planned for my last few days here, I’ll have seen and catch-up with almost everyone I intended to see during this long vacation. On top of that, a couple of my UW friends just […]

Week of Friends’ Meetups

Without any plans whatsoever, I managed to meet up with different friends for lunch and/or dinner every single day throughout this week. My somewhat loose strategy was to first meet up friends who I didn’t get to see when I was in town last year. I got to meet and catch up with 2 of […]

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 […]
