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 […]

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 […]

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

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 […]
