Longest Running Practice

Completed my longest practice ever this morning!  Ran about 24k, walked for about 10 min at 3/4 of the way and tried taking in a pack of power gel.  My energy level seemed to have replenished somewhat as I didn’t feel the hunger towards the end like last week, but the joints on my left […]

Mourning…

Called up my calligraphy teacher to tell him of my absence tomorrow morning; Messaged my fellowship committee to inform them of my absence this Friday evening.  I think I could really use some time to mourn of my uncle’s death.  I’m still sad (with some regrets too) and easily sobs when I think of the things […]

Primary School Friend in Town

A primary school friend was in town, it was a good opportunity for me and two other hk-stationed primary school classmates to catchup with him.  Couldn’t remember the last time the 4 of us met up, and we were still missing one who’s in Canada now and to whom we could only greet via WhatsApp.  It’s always […]

Sickness

Woke up with a high fever of 104 degrees early Friday morning.  I whatsapped my family group and my brother downstairs was the first to pick up and soon drove me to the hospital.  There was a stream of panicky messages among my siblings in the group all the while my parents were still sleeping.  […]
