Weekend Events

Met up with the girl-I-like yesterday after our dinner a couple of weeks ago. Originally planned to see an exhibition together at the Expo near the airport, but changed plans last minute after hearing about possible protests in that area. We went to visit The Mills in Tsuen Wan instead, first time there for the […]

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 […]

8964 Candlelight Vigil

Tagged along my highschool friends to the June 4th’s Tiananmen Massacre candlelight vigil at Victoria Park this year. This is officially my first time because the last time I joined was a few years back and the vigil ended early due to pouring rain. That time I got lost in the rain and crowd and […]

Art for Food?

Valentine’s Day.  Was thinking about asking the girl I like out, but she said early this week she didn’t have the luxury to go to the annual CNY market this year, I’m just assuming she’s busy today as well?  Or is she dating someone else?  Actually, does she have a bf?  How can I be […]

Easter Monday

Through a flyer I came across after strolling around a christian bookstore, I discovered and signed up for an art jamming session on this Creative Monday.  I’ve been wanting to try out art jamming and learn to paint with acrylics for many years, but passed many opportunities due to timing and cost.  Today’s art jamming session […]

Uncle’s Funeral

Was at my uncle’s funeral last night and this morning, it was my first time in a buddhist themed funeral and also my first time helping out in one.  Helping out as a receptionist, I asked those who came to the funeral to sign their names and in return I handed them a “吉儀” – an […]

Keep Your Legs Moving…

The 10k streetathon last Sunday was a bit of a disappointment, poor planning and preparation of the organiser had many runners including me stop way too often for way too long along the way.  Hot weather and street side air pollution were a couple of other disappointing aspects of the run. Perhaps due to adequate practice, […]

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 […]

Date?

I wasn’t lying when I told my old UW fellowship b/s last night that I have a “target” from my church.  Indeed, it just so happened that I invited her to go see an art exhibition with me this afternoon.  If dating is simply defined as going out with someone you like and get to […]
