Rainy Week

Joined a friend’s paper-making course the last minute and started off the week with the first of four long classes on Monday. I joined the time-demanding course mainly just to show support for the paper artisan friend, but it turned out to be more interesting than expected. I can actually picture myself experimenting with making […]

After a few days of troubleshooting the laser with no avail, I decided to buy a cheaper and lower power laser to help my […]

I asked a friend out for lunch on Monday at my primary school friend’s fancy Japanese restaurant in TST because it will be closing in coming weeks. While being outside away from my usual locality, I decided to venture […]

Other than sleep, I think I had spent more time in calligraphy than any other activities this past week. There were a few nights that I indulged in calligraphy past 3am! Managed to write out all the characters for the Hundred Surnames (百家姓). Next step will be to derive artworks, products, and teaching materials from […]

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 […]
