A Good Week

The past week was a good week, a rarity in recent months. Early on Monday, many Hongkongers woke up to the uplifting news about the big win of the pro-democracy camp in the district council election. I found out that my district is actually one of the most pro-Beijing districts and the candidate I voted […]

District Elections

As advised by many friends, I went to the poll station very early this morning, but the lineup was already very long as expected. I didn’t want to be late for church so I postponed my vote to later this afternoon, and there was zero lineup then (~1700). While writing this post, the radio news […]

Taipei Trip 1116 – 1119

Took on a short 4-day trip to Taipei with a couple of fellowship brothers. One of them planned the whole trip and made all the bookings, me and the other brother simply tagged along. My only contribution to the itinerary was suggesting to visit the Juming Museum. It was far from the city and took […]

Biweekly Update…

Realized my updates have become a biweekly routine… Just wrapped up a big event with WWF this weekend. Was invited to set up a booth in their green market, there was unfortunately no business to speak of, but I sincerely enjoyed the quiet time to make art outside the studio. I also enjoyed very much […]

More October Routines

Two weeks since my last update… Still continuing my Oct. inking routine, but only barely keeping up with the daily Inktober prompts. Pulled a rare all-nighter on 11th (Friday) in the studio to work on a Chinese calligraphy piece for competition, was super tired afterwards and took me a few days and many extra hours […]

Oct. New Routine

September ended and we’re already in the last quarter of 2019, will we see a good end entering 2020? Joining the Inktober challenge for the second year, I’ve begun a daily ink doodling routine. I’ve also been supplementing that with daily Chinese calligraphy practice using bible scriptures. Together with a calligraphy competition and a workshop […]

A little update of what’s been happening with me in the past 2 weeks… Completed setting up a new laser cutter in the studio and have done some preliminary testing. Submitted a “proposal” to an upcoming event with WWF HK in early Nov. Started cleaning up the studio and readying myself for an Oct. of […]

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 […]
