Back To Reality

As much as I wished to further extend my 3-month long summer vacation in Canada, I inevitably needed to face reality and returned to my deteriorating birth city on Sept. 7th. It took about 3 hours from the time my plane landed to get through the airport’s pandemic measures and customs and finally arrive at […]

2 Months

It has been more than 2 months since I left HK to visit Canada, where I last set foot 4 years ago. Time really flies! Have been sleeping a lot, met and caught up with many friends, and completed a spontaneous mini art project. I’ve rest enough and have seen most of my friends by […]

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 […]

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 […]

CNY 2022

Still have about 10 of the postcard fai-chuns to spare. I was hoping to give them out as gifts when I meet up with friends during the CNY holidays, but […]

Social Isolation

The government announced that it will extend its current unreasonably strict pandemic measures for 2 more weeks into the CNY holidays. Besides my weekly calligraphy class meetup and a consultation session at a paper artisan workshop, my time this week was mostly spent at the studio and at home. Had a funny thought this morning […]

5th Pandemic Wave

The 5th pandemic wave had officially arrived in HK according to the government officials and their consulting experts. Around 30 or so COVID cases were reported daily in the past few days. The government rolled out one of the strictest pandemic measures on Friday and banned all eateries dine-in after 6pm. The latest pandemic measure […]

Holiday Meetups

Had a few meetups with friends this past week, some of them I haven’t seen since the pandemic began 2 years ago! It’s good that we met up just before an imminent 5th pandemic wave. After 80+ days of zero community COVID cases, a few Omicron variant cases linking a restaurant near my parents’ place […]

Christmas 2021

Received 2 sweet Christmas greetings in the mail from Canada and US this year. Technology advanced from mail to e-mail and to the more common instant message greetings nowadays, but getting a mail in the post from friends who cared enough to go through the trouble of mailing me a physical greeting beats 1000 instant […]
