Chinese Calligraphy

Spent a lot of time in the studio this past week to practice Chinese calligraphy. To wrap up my nearly 1.5 years of learning the clerical script, I went through all the weekly homework and wrote out all the 1000 different characters. Although there was much room for improvement, the full 1000 handwritten letters looked […]

Carrying On…

With the social-distancing restrictions relaxed, my social activities are slowly picking up once again. My weekly Chinese calligraphy class was resumed on Tuesday since stopping from December.

Mother’s Day

In lieu of Mother’s Day, my family of 10 finally resumed our Sunday lunch ritual, despite needing to separate into 2 tables due to recently enforced social distancing laws.

Baking Class

Got my friend to take me to a trial baking class last night.  It was my first ever cooking class, a very enjoyable experience.  There’s something magical about the process of making bread – mixing the raw ingredients, kneading the dough with your hands, patiently waiting for the yeast to ferment, then anxiously waiting more […]
