New Routines

It’s been a week since I moved out and started living independently again. The transitioning to new routines like meals, laundry, transport, library visits, etc. was considerably smooth. Productivity at work seems to be improving along with the new routines. Managed to keep up with the daily Inktober cartoons, my drawing and inking skills seem […]

Typhoon 8

Woke up to a Typhoon 8. According to the local observatory, this T8 was caused by a typhoon that’s furthest away on record. It didn’t hit the city hard, but the wind seemed particularly strong in my new place. My sister next door invited me to go out for dim sum in the morning, but […]

Independence… Restarted

During a time when the mere hint of independence seemed taboo in our city, I moved back to my minimalist independent unit after the 3-months long third wave pandemic that claimed the lives of about a hundred individuals (mostly elderly). Originally planned to move next week instead, but an argument with my mom hastened the […]

Catching Up

The many months of social distancing has me nurturing a new habit of staying home on Sundays to rest and catch up on RTHK videos, FB news, daily devotions, etc. As the pandemic continue to ease with daily infections staying low in the single digit, I’m also beginning to play catch-up socially. Seized the Mid-Autumn […]

Mid-Autumn Festival

The Mid-Autumn Festival this year coincided with China’s National Day. With political conflicts piling up and unresolved and a pandemic easing but never seems to cease, the atmosphere this year seemed worst for the 10 years since I returned to HK. There was no celebration to speak of other than eating a moon cake for […]

Readying for Q4

Continued with the studio cleanup this past week. Experimented with a new way to use up the accumulated popsicle sticks scraps to make boxes and a few more pallet models. After weeks of sporadic cleanup sessions, the studio should now be more or less ready for new projects in the last quarter of a not […]

The past week had been an unusually social one since the third wave of the pandemic hit us in early July – had dinner with a few fellowship brothers on Tue, a friend’s brief studio visit and mom’s and sister’s bday dinner on Thu, and met a friend’s friend on Sat to introduce her to […]

Back To School

Resumed my weekly calligraphy class after stopping a couple of months due to the pandemic. We went to have lunch with our 93 y/o ex-classmate after class, the six of us had to split into 3 tables due to the still effective social-distancing measures. Happy to see my elderly classmate and teacher both healthy and […]

Interesting Turn of Events

Early this past week a few pro-democracy leaders were arrested for suspecting rioting on July 21st last year. One of them actually broadcasted live during the event and was beaten by gangs of white shirts in front of the camera, many Hongkongers watched the livestream and had trouble sleeping. I remember vividly of watching the […]
