Easter Holiday

In preparing for this long Easter holiday weekend, I rushed into finishing my first prototype of a Shigeru-Ban-inspired papertube furniture in the studio. Also went for a haircut, first cut in more than 6 months I think. My weekly community running clinic also ended just before the holidays. The studio’s building was cutting electricity for […]

Prepping For Easter

The number of COVID19 cases in the city had dropped to single digits and there was 0 local cases this weekend, first time in 4 months! Happy to see more light shining at the end of this long pandemic tunnel. The pandemic is still far from over, one of the more reliable vaccines was put […]

A Gloomy Week

The weather had been gloomy all week, a matching backdrop for the inhumane marathon court hearing of 47 democrats who were accused of violating the vague national security law. They were detained and judged throughout the week without being granted basic needs like shower and change of clothes, some inevitably fell ill and were sent […]

Sabbatical Begins

When planning work for the new year, I realized once again that my studio was into its 7th year since officially opening on July 23rd, 2014. I actually thought about taking a Sabbatical leave back in July, but a couple of interesting opportunities kept me dreaming up proposals. Unfortunately, both proposals were turned down and […]

Goodbye 2020

New Year came on Friday, but the atmosphere during the long weekend was the least festive I’ve ever experienced. The world seems more glad to see 2020 pass than hopeful to welcome 2021. I spent the long weekend wrapping up a couple of projects in the studio. Reviewing 2020, there wasn’t much accomplishments to speak […]

Escape Continues…

Continuing my escape from the gloomy reality of a declining city and an unceasing pandemic. The public library was closed again, so I couldn’t continue my reading of the Midnight Diner comic series. I switched to spending more time in experimenting with real culinary arts. My theme in the past week was making all-day breakfasts […]

Escape…

The 4th wave continues to ravish our city, averaging about 100 cases daily and cases of suspected residential buildings contamination. New tightening measures include no dine-in after 6pm, compulsory covid19 testing, designated quarantine hotels for travelers, etc. Equally, if not worse, devastating is the increasing persecution of pro-democracy people in our city. The media tycoon […]

New Routines

It’s been a week since I moved out and started living independently again. The transitioning to new routines like meals, laundry, transport, library visits, etc. was considerably smooth. Productivity at work seems to be improving along with the new routines. Managed to keep up with the daily Inktober cartoons, my drawing and inking skills seem […]

Typhoon 8

Woke up to a Typhoon 8. According to the local observatory, this T8 was caused by a typhoon that’s furthest away on record. It didn’t hit the city hard, but the wind seemed particularly strong in my new place. My sister next door invited me to go out for dim sum in the morning, but […]

Catching Up

The many months of social distancing has me nurturing a new habit of staying home on Sundays to rest and catch up on RTHK videos, FB news, daily devotions, etc. As the pandemic continue to ease with daily infections staying low in the single digit, I’m also beginning to play catch-up socially. Seized the Mid-Autumn […]
