Transitioning Back To Work

Originally planned to return to the studio on Tue, but found out on Mon that the day was a public holiday. My official return-to-work day was thus postponed to Wed. Felt a bit anxious like a kid going back to school to start a new school year, I didn’t sleep too well and woke up […]

Helping Others While WFH

Some of my CNY postcard fai-chuns started arriving their North American destinations this past week. My friends started messaging me one by one the photos of the Blessed Sleeping Tigers, I was happy receiving their messages as much as they receiving my little pieces of art. The past week had been rather gloomy. Local pandemic […]

Christmas 2021

Received 2 sweet Christmas greetings in the mail from Canada and US this year. Technology advanced from mail to e-mail and to the more common instant message greetings nowadays, but getting a mail in the post from friends who cared enough to go through the trouble of mailing me a physical greeting beats 1000 instant […]

A Productive Week

Without much social activities this past week, my studio work became a lot more productive. Decided to bring back the studio’s annual tradition of crafting Christmas trees this year. It took a mere 2 days to design and prototype the Christmas tree phone stand, the high efficiency in bringing imagination to life kinda surprised myself! […]

(Unusually) Social Week

Met up with many friends this past week. Demoed the robot arm toy to my old friend’s dad and late uncle’s son over Monday dinner. Farewelled a high school classmate who will be moving to Canada over Tuesday lunch. Had lunch with a church brother on Wednesday to pass him some custom 3D prints he […]

What To Do?

Spent a couple of days this past week to finish up a 3D-printed robot arm toy for my good friend’s dad. It can now be controlled by my iPad via Bluetooth, pretty cool! My uncle’s plan to lure me back into doing more engineering work seemed to have worked and I’m now a bit hooked […]

T8 Lion Rock

The city hoisted its first Typhoon 8 signal in 2021 this morning. I had been waiting all day for it to be lifted so I can go back to the studio to finish up some work I left unfinished last night. To my disappointment, Typhoon Lion Rock was unexpectedly strong and T8 was hoisted the […]

Keep Running…

Not much had happened this past week (relatively speaking). Hundreds of pro-democracy district councilors call quit before the anticipated disqualification by the government. Apparently, it’s now a crime to serve the community as long as you are not pro-China. The city’s atmosphere continues to feel depressing and suffocating and I continue to try ignoring it […]

Glimpse of Light

After a full week of gloomy weather, the sun started sneaking out again this week. The hardy white orchid I bought from a CNY market many years back seemed to notice the sun and bloomed beautifully in the light. Received a gift for helping a good family friend’s wedding back in Nov/Dec. Was hoping to […]

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 […]
