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 […]

Living with COVID-19?

Feeling a bit low this week… Just when I thought the masked days are nearing end, a few local COVID-19 cases of unknown origin broke our city’s 23 consecutive days of zero local cases. Experts foresee that we may need to adapt and coexist with the virus for quite some time and urge everyone to […]

2019-nCov Took Root

The novel coronavirus is no longer a threat, it has taken root in our city thanks to our CE’s stubbornness in not closing the Mainland borders. A tenth of our city’s medical staff went on strike but that didn’t perturb our arrogant CE’s decision. Facing the incoming virus from Mainland, our first line of protection […]

2019-nCoV Threat

With the imminent threat of the Wuhan coronavirus and an unreliable government in controlling its infiltration to our city, I have extended the CNY holiday for another week. However, I did go back to the studio on Sat. to do some cleaning and to pack some stuff to work from home this coming week. Decided […]

CNY Holidays

It has been many years since I’ve spent so many hours at home in my room. In midst of the Wuhan Coronavirus epidemic fear, the motivation to enter the public realm was low, so I spent most of the time in this CNY holidays catching up on Netflix. Finally watched the second season of Midnight […]

New Year Resolutions

Took me awhile, finally made time to sit down and come up with my list of resolutions for the new year 2020. Looking back at my 2019 resolutions, I only managed to check off 2 or 3 resolutions and the rest were either still in progress or left untouched.  Nonetheless, 2019 had been an unexpectedly […]

Holiday Season

The atmosphere in the city this holiday season seems to be the worst one for the past 10 years since I returned from Canada – Silent Night not so silent and Christmas Day seeing more chaotic protest news than about the birth of baby Jesus. There are a few things that lifted up my Christmas […]
