Heung Gong Yan… Ga Yau!!

Joined the city’s protest for the fourth time this summer. It was a rainy day, but it didn’t stop 1.7 million Hongkongers from coming out to voice out their disapproval of our government and its police force. On top of the 5 somewhat consistent petitions, the main theme for today’s rally was against police brutality. […]

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 […]

Worrying about HK

On Monday Aug. 5th, I went back to the studio super early to avoid an expected traffic chaos due to a citywide strike. I personally supported the strike and only went back to the studio to work on some personal projects. Was feeling hopeful knowing our city’s CE finally decided to hold a press conference […]

Weekend Art Retreat

Over the weekend, I was fortunate enough to be invited back to WWF’s Island House to do some art. The location is truly a paradise that’s isolated from our ever more chaotic city. The staffs and volunteers there were also very friendly and accommodating, quite a stark contrast from the hostile faces that’s becoming common […]

Back From Vacation

Got home late last night (~11pm) from a 10-day vacation in Singapore with my family… It was my first time in SG, I was particularly taken away by its greenery everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. They truly live up to their “City in the Garden” reputation! It was a much needed vacation to rest my […]

With a nearly 2-million-ppl strong peaceful protest, Hongkongers broke all records regarding protest locally (and perhaps also globally)!! Gotta be proud to be a part of this historic […]

We The North!!

Toronto Raptors won the NBA Championship for the first time since the team was established in 1995!! It was a really tight game and both teams switched leads numerous times, but never in double digits. I was literally at the edge of my seat during the last few seconds! The exciting game and the victory […]

A Day to Remember

On my 40th birthday, I slept in and didn’t wake up until near 0900. I planned to take the day off way before there was an open call to strike after the million people protest against the proposed China Extradition bill. I took my time to catch up on the daily news over breakfast. News […]

Weekly Update…

Skipped a week of updates because I was too tired last Sunday after joining the city’s rally against the extradition to mainland rule. The rally had the largest number of protesters since the Umbrella Movement, there was a sense of hope I felt afterwards. But will our stubborn Government listen to their people? There are […]

Weekly Update

The past week was another rollercoaster ride of highs and lows… It started off on a light happy note with the ex-Chief of HK appearing on a creative ad on the front page of a local newspaper. It got me thinking about advertising, crowdfunding, freedom of press, etc Mom entered and stayed in the hospital […]
