Last Running Practice

Had my last running practice this morning before the half-marathon on Sunday. Ran 10K, took just a little over 60min, a personal record! Have been disciplined enough to regularly practice while vacationing. Practiced about 5 times, but doubt that it’s enough for the coming half-marathon, will try my best and enjoy the run on Sunday!

2nd Half-Marathon Completed!

Completed my 2nd half-marathon with an improvement of ~15 mins (unofficially) compared to last year!  Thankful.  Building upon experience from last year, this year’s run seemed more pleasurable and less exhaustive, it felt like I can run an extra 1 or 2k after passing the finish line!  Perhaps I can attempt to run a full marathon […]

1st Half Marathon Completed!!

I’ve MADE IT!!  I’ve completed my 1st half marathon!!  Though slow (2h43min), I’m happy that I was able to complete the full 21K without stopping (I did stop briefly once to tie my shoelace). Although the weather didn’t cooperate (it rained throughout most of the run), it was a wonderful experience to run with so […]

Running

Completed 14K, my longest run ever!!  That’s 2/3 of a half-marathon, 1/3 more to train up in a month’s time… Running long distance doesn’t seem as bad when I run slowly at my own pace.

723 Studio

I had imagined many times what the grand opening of my studio would be like – a cozy and joyful celebration with light snacks and drinks to serve family and friends.  But I’ve been a bit too busy with work lately that I couldn’t find time to properly prepare for this big day. Instead of […]

Paycheck

Finally received the first installment of the website project I’m currently working on, it’s been a long time since I’ve received any formal income!  It’s always satisfying to have your hard work being paid off whether it be late or not. With this money, I’m more confident about my plan of setting up a small […]

35th Birthday

Gave myself a day-off and visited the Studio Ghibli Layout Designs exhibition in the afternoon.  It was amazing seeing the thousands of sketches from the many familiar animated films I had watched over the past, I can only imagine the time and effort it takes to produce a couple of hours of animation. Had dinner […]

First 3D Print

Did some website work today prior to having a little fun with the 3D printer.  It took less time than expected to setup the printer, I was able to quickly make my first 3D print using a sample print file that came with the machine. It was a bit of a transformative experience seeing the […]

Creative Monday

Had a particular productive Creative Monday today!  In addition to my regular weekly oil painting class at night, I attempted my first ever graffiti work in the afternoon! The reason that I could do graffiti is that I’ve finally found a dirty and under-utilized industrial flat as studio space!  I plan to set up a […]
