Chaos

There’s a recent downturn of events regarding the lingering protests in our city. After the violent clashes inside my neighborhood mall on Sunday, it was violently defaced and crumbled under the attack of “masked individuals”. The shopping mall will not reopen until December. My neighborhood street was also blockaded. It deemed a natural target when […]

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 […]

A Long Week

Tue – Found out my 91-yr-old classmate was serious about stopping to join our weekly calligraphy class due to deteriorating health conditions. Met and caught up with an old friend […]

I […]

Art Therapy

Running Practice

It was a gloomy and cool morning, I slept in and woke up a little late.  Didn’t start my much anticipated long running practice until 11:30am.  Was targeting to run at least a half marathon (21k), but only managed to complete about 18k, and at a disappointing pace despite the good weather (for running). The […]

CNY Holiday Ends

The CNY holiday ended as though it had never begun.  This holiday season was occupied by family and friends gatherings, one following another without much quiet time for myself to do some reflection and planning as I so eagerly hoped.  Although tiring, I’m still thankful to be able to meet up with so many friends, […]

JCCAC Handicraft Fair

Partnered with a friend to participate in the quarterly JCCAC craft fair over the weekend, it was truly an exhausting exercise for the introvert!  Being an introvert, I’m really not too keen on meeting new people and selling my products.  The lack of sleep on the night prior to the fair and the unexpected huge crowd […]
