Weekly Update

This week flew by rather quickly, here are some highlights…  The weekly Monday afternoon volunteering with the elderly was canceled, I decided to go watch a movie (I Can Only Imagine) which turned out to be one of the most inspiring movies I’ve seen for quite some time! Had coffee roasting class in the evening. […]

Geniuses

Finally finished reading the huge biography of Einstein, love the genius who famously said “imagination is more important than knowledge”!  On top of his unquestionable scientific achievements, I also admire his humility, creativity, ability to drift off or focus in all circumstances, courage of nonconformity to authorities, and above all else, his perseverance.  At the […]

My BIG Day

Didn’t make a it a big fuss for my 39th birthday yesterday, but it was still rather memorable… Had my usual weekly calligraphy class in the morning, it just so happened that the last letter of the Thousand Words (千字文) was covered.  It had been more than a year since I learnt the first letter! […]

Cafe Start-up Course

Finally started the 8-session (16 hour) cafe start-up course I registered back in Feb. last night.  The idea of opening a coffee shop took shape after my uncle passed away last year.  After my uncle’s death, I came to realize how meaningless my previous work was and began on a journey to heal myself via […]

April is Here!!

Went on a long weekend binge watching Friends, had instant noodle in tupperware and a couple of beer… As unauthentic as this little March Break is, it felt like I can use a little bit of nostalgia before starting things anew… March 2018 is officially over, and that marks the end of my 2 year […]
