Earth Hour

Earth hour, I figured I’ll spend the time contemplating and write up a post for my somewhat neglected journal (just checked, my last blog post was way back in early Feb.). Not a lot has been happening with me since the beginning of 2019. In terms of work, I’ve been busy transitioning back to doing […]

2018 Review

My resting heart rate continued to drop from 67 bpm to my normal 60 bpm in the past week, so I ended 2018 and starting 2019 with a healthy body. Before planning for the new year, here are some highlights of 2018 off the top of my head: completed my first full marathon completed my […]

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 […]

Glimpse of Hope

Looking back this past week, seems like I had been pretty productive: made good progress on the ink art website fired up the laser cutter and prototyped some 1/10 models visited my woodworking friend in Tuen Mun to discuss the coming fair on 24th and possibly more future collaborations printed out the parts for the […]

Running Again

The hot summer days seem to have finally succumbed to the cool Autumn winds. It’s a good time to try picking up running again. I managed to kick my lazy butt out the door to run 3 times this week, could barely do 2.5k, but kickstarting the habit wins half the battle I suppose. My […]

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 […]

Awaiting Storm…

Typing up this weekly entry in the studio as the whole city anxiously waits for the approaching super typhoon Mangkhut… Started off this week with a little family storm of my own.  Had a big argument with my mom on Monday over dinner.  It was a recurring argument about me not willing to eat the […]

Picking Up The Slack

Sunday – Back to my home church’s Sunday Service after my ~1.5 month vacation. Monday – Still jet-lagging and woke up early, went for a morning run after my usual morning routine.  It was my first run since May, could only complete ~2.5k and could barely catch my breath afterwards, totally out of shape. Tuesday […]

World Cup Craze

Every four years I transform myself into a soccer fan trying to catch the World Cup games at the most inconvenient times (I never seemed to be at the same time zone of the World Cup host countries).  I don’t usually watch soccer games, and it must be more than a year since I stopped […]

Run a Marathon… Check!

I survived my first (and possibly my last) 42.195k run! Nearly bursted into tears when I crossed the finish line! 😭 Received my hard earned medal for finishing the marathon. I had put so much sweat, tears, and blood into it, but it’s all worth it! I’m not sure if I enjoyed the run, just […]
