Social Distancing

The second wave of the pandemic is hitting our city hard. The hospital’s isolation wards are getting full and some confirmed COVID-19 cases are starting to require to wait in line, a very worrying situation.

Life Under 2019-nCoV

Worked home for another week to save on masks. Besides eating and sleeping, much of my time was spent going through a Chinese dictionary of 4-letter phrases and practicing Chinese calligraphy by copying the relevant words for a long unfinished project. The dictionary was a gift from my dad when I moved back to Canada […]

CNY Day

Woke up in the middle of the night at around 3am and couldn’t fall back to sleep even though I was still tired. Did my daily devotions, followed by breakfast while catching up on the daily news. It was 6-ish am when I finished my morning routine, I pushed myself out the door for my […]

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.

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 […]

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 […]

Weekend Events

Met up with the girl-I-like yesterday after our dinner a couple of weeks ago. Originally planned to see an exhibition together at the Expo near the airport, but changed plans last minute after hearing about possible protests in that area. We went to visit The Mills in Tsuen Wan instead, first time there for the […]

Week of Meetups

In midst of the lingering and worrisome protests that are happening everywhere in our city on a nearly daily basis, I managed to keep my social life intact and engaged in many rare and satisfying meetups this week… It started off with a buffet lunch to celebrate my calligraphy classmate’s 91st bday on Tuesday! I […]
