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 […]

Running

Ran about 8k, doubled the distance when I first started running 2 weeks ago! The slightly cooler weather seems to help. Still a long way from running a half-marathon, but I believe I’m making good progress!

Typhoon 8

Colleagues left the office before typhoon no.8 was hoisted in the late afternoon.  Being left alone in the studio with no immediate work to do, I decided to use the time to finish off a cartoon I started on Monday. I still very much enjoy cartooning, sometimes I imagine what it would be like to […]

Soccer

The black rain had come and gone quickly in the late morning, it was a blessing that I could play soccer in the evening without the slightest hint of rain. The last time I played the sport was back in September, if not earlier.  It felt good to be back on the field playing with […]

Hail Storm

There was a crazy hail storm last night.  According to the news, it was the 3rd time in the last 20+ years that it hailed in March in HK.  It was so intense that the roof in the nearby mall broke and its interior got totally flooded.  Images of the flooded mall looked quite apocalyptic, […]

CNY 2014

Chinese New Year 2014 has come and gone quickly and plainly.  It was the hottest CNY since I came back to HK, so hot that I had to switch back to my summer blankets to sleep well at night.  It also felt a little busy, it wasn’t until today (10th day of CNY) that I […]

Running

The weather was a bit too cold to run for the last couple of weeks, it warmed up a bit recently and I resumed my training.  Ran the same distance (~12k) and unexpectedly with the same amount of time.  I’m hoping to train up and run my first half-marathon in 2014. Had been a little […]

Exhibition Setup

Walked into the office after being away for a couple of weeks, was thinking it would just be another day in front of the computer, but it turned out to be a little more interesting… It so happens that my brother’s demising company is joining an annual exhibit for yet another year.  Instead of staying […]
