Art Therapy

Went to the funeral of Mr. Kot on Sunday evening with my dad and sister.  His daughter gave a speech on Mr. Kot’s life on behalf of the family, I was moved and couldn’t control my tears.  My empathy towards others seemed to have grown last year since my uncle passed away, I am now […]

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 […]

Fuzzy Head

Caught a minor cold/flu with a runny nose, clogged ear, and fuzzy head.  Couldn’t quite put myself to work with this state of mind, took it easy today and watched some Olympics badminton and continued my reading of Jimmy SPA’s illustrative books. <<Beautiful Solitude>>, another imaginative book by Jimmy SPA.  There were a few occasions in […]

Primary School Friend in Town

A primary school friend was in town, it was a good opportunity for me and two other hk-stationed primary school classmates to catchup with him.  Couldn’t remember the last time the 4 of us met up, and we were still missing one who’s in Canada now and to whom we could only greet via WhatsApp.  It’s always […]

The joy of exploring the huge ship […]

(Busy) CNY 2016

I was really looking forward to this year’s CNY holiday –  reading books, cleaning up my home and studio, plantings, painting, meeting up some old friends, resting and doing some planning for the year ahead… But I’ve done almost none of that and was instead pretty much occupied for most days by family and church […]

Running

Last long practice before the actual half-marathon next Sunday(17th), completed about 19K, longest run thus far! Analyzed my running log since starting my training in mid-Oct., there’s a slight chance I can complete the half-marathon next Sunday if I can continue this upward trend…

Running

Slow, exhausted, but nonetheless thankful that I kept my promise to run 10k today! Note to self: don’t eat too full the night before.
