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 […]

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 […]

Social Week

Received a very thoughtful Christmas mail from a very sweet friend in Canada early this past week. Another friend in US asked for my updated address to send his yearly greetings. I’m truly grateful to be in the mind of friends during the holiday seasons. Without them, I may have forgotten it was already December!! […]
