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 […]

(Unplanned) Long Vacation Begins…

Like the Little Prince who left his tiny B-612 planet to explore the universe, I’ll be leaving my little studio (S-723) to take a (unplanned) long vacation… I must stress again that the vacation was “unplanned” and that I never thought about visiting Canada again in less than a year.  For reasons still unknown to […]

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! […]

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 […]
