Typhoon 8

Woke up to a Typhoon 8. According to the local observatory, this T8 was caused by a typhoon that’s furthest away on record. It didn’t hit the city hard, but the wind seemed particularly strong in my new place. My sister next door invited me to go out for dim sum in the morning, but […]

Boarding School Begins Again

Met up with some good old friends for lunch and exhibition seeing in TST. Last time we met was already back in Jan.! Good to be socializing again after nearly half a year of social distancing. After parting my friends, I took a stroll alone in TST reminiscing the days when I used to go […]

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 […]

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 […]

(Tri) Weekly Update

Don’t know where I’ve spent all my time in the past few weeks, let me think… My first mini art exhibition started more than a week ago. Using the exhibition as an opening conversation, I managed to contact many friends I haven’t messaged for months, and I got back many congratulations in return. Frankly, it […]

Glimpse of Hope

Looking back this past week, seems like I had been pretty productive: made good progress on the ink art website fired up the laser cutter and prototyped some 1/10 models visited my woodworking friend in Tuen Mun to discuss the coming fair on 24th and possibly more future collaborations printed out the parts for the […]

Mission Completed, Real Vacation Starts!

Barely slept last night, probably due to worries of not getting enough sleep to drive my parents and sister to the airport in the early morning. Worrying about not getting enough sleep is truly a self-fulfilling prophecy. At one point I did fall into a short but deep sleep. I dreamt that my dad found […]

3-Day Montreal Trip

We (my parents, sister, and me) tagged along my Toronto’s sister’s family of four to a 3-day weekend trip to Montreal, Quebec. My brother-in-law lived in Montreal for 4 or 5 years when he first emigrated to Canada with his family, so he knows the city pretty well. He took us to many places including […]
