Life and Death

Just finished reading a short book Morrie: In His Own Words. Was constantly thinking about my 90-yr-old classmate from my Tuesdays-with-Morrie-like calligraphy class. He’s good and well and I still feel blessed to seeing him at class every Tuesday morning. But over the ~2.5 years since I started learning calligraphy, I’ve been witnessing his hearing […]

Reading and Writing

Spent unusually long amount of time immersing myself in books the past week. Finished reading two books, one on creative writing (Bird by Bird) and the other being a fictional novel about time (The Time Keeper). Never considered doing any writing myself, but Bird by Bird is one of those books you just can’t let […]

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 […]

Weekly Updates…

The past month had been the hottest and driest May ever recorded in HK.  As much as I’m glad that the 14 (or 15) consecutive very hot day warnings have ended, I just wished time could pass by just a little slower… Recently I seemed to be growing more and more conscious about time and […]

Grave Sweeping

Gloomy day, just the right weather to join my aunt and sister to visit my uncle’s grave.  My aunt reminded us that it has been 1 year, 1 month, and x days since my uncle passed away.  She still misses uncle a lot, but less so than the last time we saw her, may time […]

Goodbye August, Goodbye Summer!

Another month has gone without a trace, can You make time pass a little slower oh Lord?! I have many things in mind that I wanted to do, but the plans require long term dedication, I’m a bit afraid to even start.  I’ve been planning on an extended vacation back to Canada this Fall, it’s been […]

Goodbye First .5 of 2017

Another quarter’s gone and the first half of 2017 passed.  What have I done with the time that God had entrusted me with? For the last couple of months, I had finally met up with all the friends I promised to meet and catch-up with during CNY.  I planned to meet them earlier, but my […]

Readings and Recent Updates

Finished reading a couple of good books (Where’s God When It Hurts, Man’s Search for Meaning).  I’ve always avoided reading books on war, death, and suffering, and I would probably never have picked up and read those books if not for my uncle’s recent passing away. My uncle’s passing away seems to be transforming me still, […]

New Studio T-shirts

Used my amateurish silkscreen printing skill to design and print some studio t-shirts.  This is something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time.  I’m never a fashionable guy, and more like a cartoon character, I prefer to wear the “same” clothes each day. With the set of studio t-shirts printed, I’ll likely spend […]
