Recovered (~80%)

My legs were shaking when I was playing badminton yesterday, don’t remember feeling this way ever before. I’m recovering from a bad flu, was hoping that a little exercise would help the healing. I’m actually feeling much better this past week. Seeing my slow progress in recovering, I bought some over-the-counter flu pills in the […]

Still Sick…

Still feeling sick – poor sleep quality, headaches, coughing, and short of breath. But I think it’s improving – less frequent wake ups in the middle of the night and less severe headaches. A few people had told me in the past few weeks that I looked much thinner. I don’t have the habit of […]

It’s an interesting project and it sure got me interested in 3D printing again. I printed another one for the friend who first told me about the project Visited my 90-yr-old […]

Let Your Life Speak

Finished reading the little book Let Your Life Speak. Don’t remember where I came across that book and noted it down on my reading list. I probably was just captivated by the title. Can’t say that I liked the book, but there’s something intriguing in it that got me thinking. The author says that even […]

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 […]

Recent Updates

It’s been awhile since I sat in front on my laptop and talk to my journal… Firstly, since this “co-op term” started at the beginning of the month, I stopped my regular morning running practice, not because of work but mainly just due to the unusually hot weather… I’ve also finished the month-long Cafe Startup […]

Cafe Start-up Course

Finally started the 8-session (16 hour) cafe start-up course I registered back in Feb. last night.  The idea of opening a coffee shop took shape after my uncle passed away last year.  After my uncle’s death, I came to realize how meaningless my previous work was and began on a journey to heal myself via […]

Jesus and Money

Don’t even remember how I came across this book Jesus and Money.  I was drawn by the title as I’m in the process of figuring out the studio finances for the new year.  It’s a problem I’ve been lavishly avoiding for a long time, but I really need to figure out a way to sustain […]

CNY’s Day

Was rather tired last night, deliberately turned off my phone and slept before midnight.  Slept pretty well.  Woke up at around 9am and did my daily devotion, then made coffee and had breakfast while turning on my phone and replying to the expected floods of CNY greeting messages. Had dim sum lunch with my family […]

CNY Eve 2018

Had been spending most of the week cleaning up the studio.  Finished cleaning up the main work area and the art area, but haven’t really touched the DIY area, that have to wait till I get back to the studio after the CNY holiday. My dad called me today telling me that my sister-in-law’s brother […]
