Readying for Q4

Continued with the studio cleanup this past week. Experimented with a new way to use up the accumulated popsicle sticks scraps to make boxes and a few more pallet models. After weeks of sporadic cleanup sessions, the studio should now be more or less ready for new projects in the last quarter of a not […]

Back to (Passive) Social…

The past week had been an unusually social one since the third wave of the pandemic hit us in early July – had dinner with a few fellowship brothers on Tue, a friend’s brief studio visit and mom’s and sister’s bday dinner on Thu, and met a friend’s friend on Sat to introduce her to […]

Back to Social?

As soon as the government relaxed the social distancing measures to allow as many as 4 ppl to meet, the city seems to have livened up almost immediately. I had dim sum lunch with my parents for the first time since the 3rd pandemic broke out in July. Also took the opportunity to farewell a […]

Back To School

Resumed my weekly calligraphy class after stopping a couple of months due to the pandemic. We went to have lunch with our 93 y/o ex-classmate after class, the six of us had to split into 3 tables due to the still effective social-distancing measures. Happy to see my elderly classmate and teacher both healthy and […]

Interesting Turn of Events

Early this past week a few pro-democracy leaders were arrested for suspecting rioting on July 21st last year. One of them actually broadcasted live during the event and was beaten by gangs of white shirts in front of the camera, many Hongkongers watched the livestream and had trouble sleeping. I remember vividly of watching the […]

Work From Home

Caught up with my Inktober52 cartoons, annual daily devotions is now less than 1 week behind instead of 3, and made considerable progress on the deTour collaboration project. Could honestly say that I did the best I […]

Canada Day 2020

On July 1st, I prefer to celebrate Canada Day over the Handover Day of Hong Kong back to China, which is not something worth celebrating in many Hongkongers’ point-of-view. I was born in HK and have spent much of my life here. I have also lived in Canada for about 15 years. I’ve moved back […]

Transitioning…

Met and caught up with my UW friends last night, this is officially my first social meetup since the pandemic broke out in Jan.! Haven’t really been socializing for so long, I felt especially happy seeing and chatting with everyone. Thanks to COVID-19, I now realize how important it is to have friends to share […]

Contingency Plan

The political and economic situation in the city continue to spiral down since the National Security Law for HK was proposed last week and unilaterally passed this week. I started asking my friends to hear their thoughts. A couple plans to hasten their plan to emigrate to Taiwan, another friend asked about renewing their colonial […]

HK is Dying

Beijing announced on Thursday the National Security Law for HK. The stock market plummeted on Friday (greatest single-day drop in past 5 years) and everyone on the street was talking about it. The sacrifice of HK’s economy was likely already accounted for before PRC proposed the Law that clearly violates our city’s “One Country, Two […]
