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 […]

World Cup

The past week’s schedule was skewed slightly by World Cup. A few games that were broadcasted freely kicked off at midnight, I stayed up to catch the games and went to bed immediately at around 2am. Bedtime reading was no longer needed to put myself to sleep. Had quite a few social meetups again this […]

Another Packed Week

The past week was a packed but not as tiring week. Mon – a fellowship brother visited the studio after work because he needed some graphic design assistance for his upcoming wedding in Feb. The discussion was brief, but we had dinner together nearby and had a long chat on church, fellowship, and many personal […]

Busy and Tiring Week

After slacking off the previous week, the past week had been relatively busy and tiring. Much of my time and effort was spent cleaning up the studio to prepare for some important guests to visit on Sat. Another large chunk of time was spent outside the studio to meet with friends and family, that included […]

First Week

It has been slightly over a week since I started my month-long vacation. Have been meeting and catching up with friends almost daily since I returned to Toronto, nice to see everyone happy and well. I’m grateful for friends who have been leaving messages and welcoming me back as soon as I set foot on […]

Vacation Started

After a few hectic days of finishing up my studio work, cleaning my home, and packing, I officially started my month-long Canadian vacation on June 8th. I flew with my friend’s family of 4 who were moving back to Canada, and thanks to him, I got a free ride to the airport. Lucky for the […]

A New Chapter?

The city had appointed its new CE on Mother’s Day, a foreseeable authoritarian chapter will officially begin on July 1st. It’s sad to witness the once free and creative city deteriorate and people emigrating and separated from their families. Life goes on… My weekly calligraphy class had finally resumed since the 5th pandemic wave began […]

🌏 Weekend

It was Earth Day on Friday, I seized the opportunity to do some gardening and pampered the many succulents in the studio. Earth Day became Earth Weekend. On Sat., after having dim sum lunch with my family (my first dine-in since the 5th pandemic wave), I went home and cleaned up my little green corner. […]

Easter Weekend

The current pandemic wave has receded substantially from the peak of 50k+ COVID cases daily to the recent 3 digits. The Easter long weekend provided a good time for people to head outside for a little breather from the exhausting pandemic marathon. The streets were flooded with people as a result. I was still awaiting […]

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 […]
