Funeral and Sickness

Went to the “funeral” of a dear elderly calligraphy classmate on Monday morning. We were classmates for 3 or 4 years before he stopped going to class prior to the pandemic due to deteriorating health and family matters. I still made an effort to visit him a couple of times during the pandemic and the […]

Mid-Q3… Progressing

It had been a pretty busy week. Started an evening workshop on Tue to learn about making independent illustrated zines. I’m tinkering on the idea of making a small story book for KOKB. Two more lessons to go, will see whether my inkling will provide enough fuel for me to actually do the story book […]

44th Birthday

Took a day off on Mon to give myself the gift of time to do whatever I want for my 44th bday. I finally took the time to organize and display my growing series of critically endangered animal caricature paintings in my private living-room gallery. I’m not particularly fond of celebrating bdays, but I’m courteous […]

Back On Track

After a bit of struggling with my own will power, and when I was just about to leave home for my second weekly running practice yesterday evening, my Fitbit watch couldn’t be turned on. I didn’t want to run my planned 10K practice without the watch to track my time and heart rate, so I […]

Bye Bye Friend

After a short ~10 days stay at my apartment, I farewelled my Canadian friend off to his next destination on early Friday morning. Thanks to his visit, I finally cleaned up my apartment, a task that was scheduled before LNY but was put off due to busyness and my never ending excuses at the time. […]

“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 […]

Church/JF Reunion

Joined a fellowship’s brother’s wedding yesterday. The preparation began a few months ago when the groom-to-be asked for my help to design the ceremony rundown printout. It was the first time I saw the actual physical print yesterday morning when I was helping with the church decorations before the ceremony. It turned out better than […]

Website Updates

Have been working hard from home during this LNY holidays. Except for an evening run on Tue., calligraphy class on Thur. and a fellowship gathering on Sat. evening, I stayed home to work on some websites. I first had to cleanup and organize the MBP I bought during my summer vacation in Canada. When that’s […]

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 […]

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 […]
