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 […]

Day Before 1st Marathon

Woke up at 4am, carried out my usual morning routine, and then strolled down to the MTR station. Passed the MTR station and continued my way to the park where I have been training for months. Did some warmup and started my run at 0635 sharp. That’s when I’ll start my 1st ever marathon tomorrow, […]

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 […]

Running Practice

It was a gloomy and cool morning, I slept in and woke up a little late.  Didn’t start my much anticipated long running practice until 11:30am.  Was targeting to run at least a half marathon (21k), but only managed to complete about 18k, and at a disappointing pace despite the good weather (for running). The […]
