Short Okinawa Trip

Joined my sister and brother-in-law on a short 5-day trip to Okinawa last week.  The trip did recall memories of my trip to Hawaii 4 years ago, that’s still one of my best trips thus far.  I once again got to see the boundless horizon of the ocean, which is becoming somewhat of an annual summer tradition […]

Goodbye First .5 of 2017

Another quarter’s gone and the first half of 2017 passed.  What have I done with the time that God had entrusted me with? For the last couple of months, I had finally met up with all the friends I promised to meet and catch-up with during CNY.  I planned to meet them earlier, but my […]

Barista Exam & Cafe Hopping

A good friend was in the neighbourhood to do some work, I decided to take the meet up opportunity to try out some interesting cafes nearby.  We first went to a cafe that sells designer goods, but was disappointed seeing the “closed” sign at the door.  We saw employees having a meeting inside, they obviously […]

New Daily Routine

In the last couple of weeks, I’ve started a new daily (almost) habit of practicing calligraphy and portraiture drawing using a brush pen.  As much as I love doing art, I’m still very skeptical about the idea of becoming a full-time (starving) artist. Since my uncle got really sick earlier this year and later passed […]

Goodbye 2017 Q1

Almost forgot it’s public holiday today.  I went back to the studio as usual after my weekly calligraphy class.  The studio seemed particularly quiet, I took some time to fold up 3 months of daily to-do lists.  Much of the goals I’ve set up for this quarter was left untouched.  Where has the time gone? […]

What is Life?

Have been pondering about the meaning of life a lot after my uncle passed away.  The question of life and death never felt so near until the traumatic experience of witnessing my uncle losing his life signals before my very eyes. When I was aware of the interdisciplinary discussion/seminar about “What is Life?” was being […]

Meaning of Life?

My uncle’s (father’s younger brother) liver cancer has relapsed and my aunt was told to prepare for the worst.  It’s time like this that makes me stop and question about the meaning of life. Just when I was starting to procrastinate about the many things still unfinished before the end of the year, my uncle’s news […]

KANO

If not for my sister’s recommendation, I would probably never go into the theatre myself and watch this 3-hour movie.  Thankful that I listened to her, I was inspired and started thinking about my aspirations again.  Don’t you just love films that compels you to reflect upon your life and question your life’s purpose?! Am […]

A Real Studio?!

I don’t remember for how long and to how many people I’ve been saying that I wanted to rent an industrial unit as a studio/workshop to do some messy work (e.g. painting, soldering, woodworking,…), and I may have just found one today, and possibly for $0 rent too! It just so happens that my family […]

Back to the Drawing Board

Resumed my painting class after the public holiday last Monday.  It’s good to be in a familiar environment, indulging in doing something I enjoy without getting too much attention. Let life resumes to normal after the award ceremony this past weekend, I really don’t quite enjoy to be under the spotlight.  I recall reading a […]
