Back To Normal

After an unusual week filled with meetups with family and friends and a daily schedule that was skewed by the World Cup, this past week was back to normal. No social meetups occurred this past week other than my regular Chinese calligraphy class on Thursday. The only gathering that was scheduled for Sat. afternoon with […]

Rainy Week

It has been cloudy and rainy all week long. The gloomy weather seems to match the many downcast faces seen on the streets. The 5th pandemic wave has eased with daily confirmed COVID cases in the low 3 digits and related deaths in single digit, however, the gloomy atmosphere in the city seems like it […]

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 […]

Winter Solstice, Christmas,…

The holiday season started with the Winter Solstice on Monday. It’s a traditional Chinese celebration when most people would make their best effort to go home for a warm family dinner. With the pandemic still serious, my family of 10 (in HK) did not celebrate together for the first time in the past 11 years […]

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 […]

Originally planned to do some volunteering in the afternoon, but the fai chun making session with the elderly was cancelled due to cold weather.

Art Therapy

Went to the funeral of Mr. Kot on Sunday evening with my dad and sister.  His daughter gave a speech on Mr. Kot’s life on behalf of the family, I was moved and couldn’t control my tears.  My empathy towards others seemed to have grown last year since my uncle passed away, I am now […]

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 […]

Short Okinawa Trip

Joined my sister and brother-in-law on a short 5-day trip to Okinawa last week.  The trip did recall memories of my trip to Hawaii 4 years ago, that’s still one of my best trips thus far.  I once again got to see the boundless horizon of the ocean, which is becoming somewhat of an annual summer tradition […]
