Post-COVID Plan?

Had dinner at one of the usual restaurants near the studio on Fri. The restaurant owners seemed especially happy seeing me dining-in, they mentioned that it had been 3 years since I last dined in. It felt strange but true, having lived through the long years of pandemic still seemed like a surreal experience. Have […]

Mask Off

The HK gov. surprised the city with the sudden lifting of the compulsory mask mandate on the first day of March. After ~2.5 years since the “emergency” law came into effect, it’s a much welcomed relief to see the long overdue mandate to finally be axed. Most people on the street were still masked, I […]

“Single“ Again!

Though more or less expected, I was especially ecstatic yesterday morning when a single line on my rapid test reassured my recovery from COVID! I immediately told my fellowship caring group to let me join the scheduled dinner meetup! Stayed home the entire week without stepping outside. Took the opportunity to put in some finishing […]

Sickness

I finally tested positive for COVID today since the pandemic broke out in late 2019. Symptoms are mild – occasional coughs and chills. The symptoms actually started emerging after I did my evening run last Wed. Didn’t sleep very well that night and felt especially sore the next morning. I thought it was just caused […]

New Year Holidays

The New Year holiday was rather dull and quiet. Went to get my fourth vaccination shot on Friday (30th) around noon. Afterwards, I went back to the studio to do some work before joining my annual high school friends gathering in the evening. The bivalent vaccine shot had familiar side effects as previous shots and […]

A Good Week

The past week was probably the best week I had since returning to this city in mid-Sept. Took a day off on Wed. to visit the M+ Museum for the first time with a friend. Felt like a tourist in this city that seems to be getting more and more unfamiliar to me. Met and […]

Friends

Started meeting and catching up with friends after returning to HK and completing the useless 10 days of COVID testing required by the government. I thought most of the people who planned to leave this deteriorating city already left by the time the summer was over, but I was wrong. A friend already left for […]

1 Month of WFH

Have been working from home since early Feb. In one month’s time, I managed to get back into doing some web programming work and was able to complete 4 website update projects. After launching the final website late last night, I felt extra relaxed. With a lightened mood, I took my time to slowly stroll […]

100 Blessings (cont’d)

Started sending out the Blessed Sleeping Tiger postcard fai-chuns early this past week. As my friends started receiving the snail mails, thank you messages started pinging my mobile phone one by one. Many of the messages came with a photo of the cards received. They were proofs that my friends liked and cherished my little […]
