More October Routines

Two weeks since my last update… Still continuing my Oct. inking routine, but only barely keeping up with the daily Inktober prompts. Pulled a rare all-nighter on 11th (Friday) in the studio to work on a Chinese calligraphy piece for competition, was super tired afterwards and took me a few days and many extra hours […]

Oct. New Routine

September ended and we’re already in the last quarter of 2019, will we see a good end entering 2020? Joining the Inktober challenge for the second year, I’ve begun a daily ink doodling routine. I’ve also been supplementing that with daily Chinese calligraphy practice using bible scriptures. Together with a calligraphy competition and a workshop […]

We The North!!

Toronto Raptors won the NBA Championship for the first time since the team was established in 1995!! It was a really tight game and both teams switched leads numerous times, but never in double digits. I was literally at the edge of my seat during the last few seconds! The exciting game and the victory […]

(Tri) Weekly Update

Don’t know where I’ve spent all my time in the past few weeks, let me think… My first mini art exhibition started more than a week ago. Using the exhibition as an opening conversation, I managed to contact many friends I haven’t messaged for months, and I got back many congratulations in return. Frankly, it […]

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 […]

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 […]
