My only contribution to the itinerary was suggesting to visit the Juming Museum. It was far from the city and took […]

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 […]

Back From Vacation

Got home late last night (~11pm) from a 10-day vacation in Singapore with my family… It was my first time in SG, I was particularly taken away by its greenery everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. They truly live up to their “City in the Garden” reputation! It was a much needed vacation to rest 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 […]

Woke up at around 4am this morning […]

Week of Friends’ Meetups (again)

Managed to meet and catch up with friends every day except Tue. in the past week. Including a couple more meetups planned for my last few days here, I’ll have seen and catch-up with almost everyone I intended to see during this long vacation. On top of that, a couple of my UW friends just […]

Week of Friends’ Meetups

Without any plans whatsoever, I managed to meet up with different friends for lunch and/or dinner every single day throughout this week. My somewhat loose strategy was to first meet up friends who I didn’t get to see when I was in town last year. I got to meet and catch up with 2 of […]

Mission Completed, Real Vacation Starts!

Barely slept last night, probably due to worries of not getting enough sleep to drive my parents and sister to the airport in the early morning. Worrying about not getting enough sleep is truly a self-fulfilling prophecy. At one point I did fall into a short but deep sleep. I dreamt that my dad found […]
