Loving Vincent

Finally watched Loving Vincent this early morning (9am)!  I actually woke up at around 4:30am and couldn’t fall back to sleep, too excited?  I was able to finish my regular morning routine (i.e. breakfast & newspaper & devotion (sometimes)), then running practice and shower at home before heading out for the cinema.  A very productive […]

Creative Monday

Finished my Monday evening barista classes last week, back to the luxury of freely indulging in creative things that fills the empty part of my soul on this Creative Monday! Watched a documentary of one of my favourite artists – Vincent Van Gogh.  Learnt that he dabbled in many different jobs before settling into a career […]

Meaning of Life?

My uncle’s (father’s younger brother) liver cancer has relapsed and my aunt was told to prepare for the worst.  It’s time like this that makes me stop and question about the meaning of life. Just when I was starting to procrastinate about the many things still unfinished before the end of the year, my uncle’s news […]

Movies and Dreams

After the exhausting craft fair on the Sept. 10th weekend, I thought about going on a short vacation to re-energize myself before getting busy again for the new Fall “co-op term”, but abandoned the idea as I don’t know how to justify the cost of going alone and without a purpose.  Did a brief stay-cation […]

Time

Time, a concept that warrants timeless debates/discussions/contemplations. I’m still not quite completely recovered from my emotional low, the constant depressing news (both locally and globally) seems to have lengthened the recovery process.  Rather than pushing myself to recover from the blues with mindless and endless work, I decided to take it slow and use all […]

深夜食堂

For 2 consecutive nights, I’ve held a little social gathering with friends at my studio.  It all started spontaneously on Friday when my friends suggested meeting up after their dinner with friends nearby, it just so happened that there were no fellowship that night, and I couldn’t think of a better place to meetup than […]

<<Heaven is For Real>>>>

Parents were out for a dinner banquet, I decided to go for a movie on my own. Watched a movie that had been on for quite some time because a few of my friends recommended it. It was based on a true story about a Reverend whose 4 yr old son had a vivid heaven […]

KANO

If not for my sister’s recommendation, I would probably never go into the theatre myself and watch this 3-hour movie.  Thankful that I listened to her, I was inspired and started thinking about my aspirations again.  Don’t you just love films that compels you to reflect upon your life and question your life’s purpose?! Am […]

Hail Storm

There was a crazy hail storm last night.  According to the news, it was the 3rd time in the last 20+ years that it hailed in March in HK.  It was so intense that the roof in the nearby mall broke and its interior got totally flooded.  Images of the flooded mall looked quite apocalyptic, […]

Character Design

Had been wanting to design some cartoon characters for some time now, finally started putting that idea to work today.  I went back to the basics and started relearning how to draw the ideal 8-head tall human figure.  The process of creating a cartoon character is quite intriguing, you can design all sorts of characters […]
