First Art Purchase

In my somewhat long adhoc journey exploring the art world, never have I purchased any piece of original art… that is until today. I was in TST to see an art exhibition in which one of my old oil painting friends was showing a few of her watercolor paintings. I stumbled across two very different […]

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 and Socializing

Had been monitoring my resting heart rate (bpm) closely since I suffered from the bad flu. It has always been considerably constant rating at around 60 bpm since I got my Fitbit about a year ago, so I never paid much attention to it. But since I got sick many weeks ago, I noticed that […]

Recovered (~90%)

Joined the UW alumni to play some badminton again yesterday. Only 8 players showed up, and with 2 courts booked, there was barely resting time during the 2 hours. Tired, but I felt much better than last week, a good sign of recovery. Can’t say that I’m 100% healed from the bad flu however, the […]

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 […]

The CUHK Handicraft Fair

It has been 2 years since I participated in a craft fair.  This one on past Sat. seemed less exhausting, perhaps due to it being only one day and with shorter opening hours. The exhaustion actually came from the preparation work which included designing and launching a website, designing and printing 120 different postcards, and […]

Glimpse of Hope

#inktober… DONE!!

The feeling of finishing my last cartoon panel for the #inktober fest is comparable to finishing a marathon! It was no easy task to follow the random word prompt each day and come up with a cartoon panel that would fit coherently into a story. It was challenging yet fun. I took the opportunity to […]

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 […]
