Recent Updates

It’s been awhile since I sat in front on my laptop and talk to my journal… Firstly, since this “co-op term” started at the beginning of the month, I stopped my regular morning running practice, not because of work but mainly just due to the unusually hot weather… I’ve also finished the month-long Cafe Startup […]

Typhoon Hato

Typhoon Hato hit town today, it’s the third time typhoon n0.8 or above was hoisted this year.  It’s not difficult to remember because the first time happened on my birthday, the second time on my studio’s birthday, and the third time exactly one month afterwards. I decided to stay home during this crazy weather.  The construction site […]

Hot Days!!

The weather is so hot these days that one immediately starts sweating within 5 min. of walking outside.  I finally turned on the air-conditioner at home for the first time last weekend, as environmentally friendly as I hoped to be, I seriously couldn’t sleep without it. I thought I could still do my morning run this week […]

Running

The weather finally getting a little chilly in the morning.  The sun was shining today after a couple of rainy and gloomy days, I couldn’t resist to go out for a run.  Ran about 6k, longest run since getting back to my regular running practice at the beginning of the month. Took the day off […]

JF Hike

The annoying hot summer weather in HK seems to be finally fading, and the typhoon and associated rain did not hit as forecasted, perfect weather for our fellowship to kickoff the first hike of the year!  It’s really refreshing to be immersed in nature and away from the urban concrete jungle once in a while. HK […]

Typhoon Nida

Typhoon signal no.8 was hoisted at 8:40 last night as Nida hit near HK coast.  The signal lasted for most of the morning today and much of the HK workforce got a morning off.  I went back to the studio in the early afternoon, walking pass many fallen branches and leaves along the way.  Many shops and restaurants were […]

Running

Got up a little late again this morning, the cooler evening temperature made sleeping better though it was a nightmarish kinda night.  I insisted on doing my running practice because I couldn’t do it tomorrow morning.  Ran only 4K, with improved speed.

Running

12.35k!  The cloudy cool weather certainly helped, thankful. I was thinking the world will be a better place if I can accomplish today’s training. Will icebergs stop melting? Atmospheric CO2 recede below 400ppm levels? Will terrorists repent and become good guys? Probably not. But I suppose some dumb optimism wouldn’t hurt.

Running

Another upset, ran only 4k this morning.  I couldn’t blame it on the scorching sun this time as it was occasionally cloudy with comfortable breezes.  The excuse of the day was that I was a little worried my body hadn’t regenerated all the blood cells lost from the biennial body check yesterday. Hopefully I’ll be […]

Running

Planned to do a 7k practice run this morning, but could only run 4k, felt defeated.  I think there were 2 possible reasons for the upset, one was that I got ambitious and used up a lot of the strength at the beginning of the run, and second was the scorching sun. It was 30 […]
