Unusually Social Week

I’m not entirely sure why, but many of my social meetups ended up cramping into this one week and fitted perfectly into the weekly scheduling without overlapping. Other than Monday which I usually set aside for my weekly indulgence in ink art, I met up with friends every single day, probably a personal social record […]

Studio Cleanup

Have been busy cleaning up the studio in the last few weeks, it seemed like a never ending task, there’s always more things I could have organized and cleaned up further. Decided to finally call it quit for the big cleanup project last week after repotting the many plants in the studio! The city and […]

A Time For Sorrow

There’s a time for joy and a time for sorrow. Following a happy reunion with my UW gang and coffee with the girl-I-like after more than a year of pandemic craziness, news of sickness and death started coming in from people around me. First, my colleague told me her husband’s intestinal cancer had metastasized into […]

Sabbatical Ended

The opening of the embattled and postponed Tokyo 2020 Olympics also marked the end of my self-conducted (half) Sabbatical. Thought about continuing the rather fruitful Sabbatical till the end of year, but it felt like the right time now to finally get myself out of this marathon pandemic rut and get serious with my life. […]

Memorable BDay Long Weekend

Didn’t realize today (Monday) was a public holiday until last Friday. It just so happened that many of my friends meetups and farewell gatherings were scheduled perfectly within the few days with no overlapping. Met up with 5 different group of friends on 5 separate meals and 3 of which served with alcohol! This certainly […]

Home Studio

Finally finished setting up my home studio, one of the biggest projects I included on my Q2 to-do list. The most time-consuming part was the piece of custom shelving I designed and made using paper tubes and 3D-printed joints. This Shigeru-Ban-inspired system of furnitures and accessories is probably my most satisfying work during this self-conducted […]

Read about the prison conditions and how there was on A/C despite the heat, I deliberately slept without turning on A/C on Thursday and Friday, slept poorly on the first night, but […]

Second Jab

Took my second COVID-19 vaccine shot yesterday evening, despite forewarned side effects I slept surprisingly well last night, but the body is still suffering from minor headaches and muscle fatigue as I’m typing up this blog post. The pandemic numbers continued to ease locally, so I continued to meet and catch up with friends to […]

A Packed Week

The past week was unusually packed with social activities. It started with Monday evening when a friend who emigrated to Taiwan came back and wanna meetup before she goes back in a week. Tuesday was packed the most. After my weekly calligraphy class in the morning, I joined my calligraphy classmate and her daughter for […]
