WKCD

Recently all that I can think of are the two assignments that I aim to finish before the end of the month.  My sleeps were often interrupted by vivid dreams and were not as revitalizing, a sign of procrastination and stress. So it felt quite refreshing when I made time to see the proposals for […]

Bonsai Terrarium Class

Took an introduction class on bonsai terrarium yesterday. The instructor performed an amazing live demo and created a scenic landscape inside a semi-enclosed glazed apple. Reminded me of hobbyists assembling model ships inside wine bottles. I’ve already reserved a small space next to the miniature stone garden to put into practice what I’ve learned…

Greening My Studio III

Spent much of my last week designing and assembling a miniature stone garden for my studio’s window shelf.  Due to my lack of care, a lot of the bonsai plants given during class already looks like they’re dying with much of their leaves lost.  Hopefully, with more tender care, they’ll be revived and bud out […]

Summer Vacation Starts Today!

Submitted my paper on “Mitigating Air Pollution with Architecture in Hong Kong” today.  There were at least 3 months for me to work on it, but I barely did any work until the last two weeks, all the other time were wasted on procrastination.  I don’t know why I just can’t get myself to start […]

Changchun Library Design

I’ve missed Sunday service, skipped my first class (it’s actually an optional workshop), missed my regular Sunday dim-sum with my family, and failed to attend a wedding I was initially thinking about going.  I’ve even refrained from playing with my adorable little nephew when he came knocking every morning throughout last week. I can be […]

Elim Fellowship

I’ve been feeling this stress/anxiety building up inside me throughout the week.  There were a few nights I couldn’t fall sleep until 4 or 5am.  This is not like the stress I feel in exam times, and I don’t recall any similar prior experience.  It’s beyond my vocabulary to describe what I’m feeling… I felt […]

Models

I became somewhat of an avid modeler when I moved back to Toronto in Grade 12.  High school was not too demanding here, so I could easily spend days, weeks, or even up to a month on a particular model.  I was very much a perfectionist back then, and I could easily be irritated by […]
