#inktober… DONE!!

The feeling of finishing my last cartoon panel for the #inktober fest is comparable to finishing a marathon! It was no easy task to follow the random word prompt each day and come up with a cartoon panel that would fit coherently into a story. It was challenging yet fun. I took the opportunity to […]

Back to HK

Arrived home yesterday afternoon on a rainy day.  Tired from the long haul flight, I napped immediately after showering.  Mom woke me up for an early dinner, I was still tired and having a little headache, didn’t have the appetite to eat much.  Slept early at around 9pm. Woke up at around 4am this morning […]

Weekly Update

Had coffee roasting class in the evening. […]

Grave Sweeping

Gloomy day, just the right weather to join my aunt and sister to visit my uncle’s grave.  My aunt reminded us that it has been 1 year, 1 month, and x days since my uncle passed away.  She still misses uncle a lot, but less so than the last time we saw her, may time […]

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 […]

New Year’s Resolutions

It’s mid-Feb and I’ve finally found the time to do a little tidying up of my studio’s desktop and then spend some quiet time planning for the new year ahead. Made some new year’s resolutions (wishes), some work related while the rest are more personal.  Most of the resolutions are things I’ve been wanting to do for […]

CNY Holiday Starts

Had been a bit busy before the CNY holiday trying to prototype products to apply for a tiny space to market the studio’s products.  The kiosk owner quickly replied saying they were full and could only put me on the waiting list.  They also mentioned that there are kiosk spaces in other malls I can apply […]

Busy Work Week

This week was a considerably busy week.  Decided last week to apply for a local handcraft fair as an joint “exhibitor” with a friend, and being the last-minute person that I am, I only started working on the application on Monday, 2 days before the application deadline!  Rushed into prototyping and photographing products to include in the application, […]

Time

Time, a concept that warrants timeless debates/discussions/contemplations. I’m still not quite completely recovered from my emotional low, the constant depressing news (both locally and globally) seems to have lengthened the recovery process.  Rather than pushing myself to recover from the blues with mindless and endless work, I decided to take it slow and use all […]
