Canada Day

There are a few commonalities between my 2 homes – Hong Kong and Canada. Their flags are colored in red and white and include a symbolic flora, and they both share a public holiday on July 1st. In HK, the handover of a colonial democratic government to a brutal dictator regime on July 1st 1997 […]

A Death Blow To Appledaily

The sad week noted on my earlier post turned sadder still. The only pro-democracy newspaper media company, Appledaily, folded and printed their last newspaper on Thursday after being raided by police and had their financial accounts frozen the week before. They printed a record 1 million copies and it was already sold out when I […]

Isolation

Our insane government issued the first ever surprise weekend lockdown in one of the more covid19-affected areas, I was angry even though it didn’t affect me. The problem is not the lockdown itself, it’s the way it was suddenly executed without people’s consent. One of the government advisers said openly the operation wasn’t secret enough […]

Work From Home

Worked from home the entire week, only went back to the studio on Sat. to do some prototyping. Caught up with my Inktober52 cartoons, annual daily devotions is now less than 1 week behind instead of 3, and made considerable progress on the deTour collaboration project. Could honestly say that I did the best I […]

Contingency Plan

The political and economic situation in the city continue to spiral down since the National Security Law for HK was proposed last week and unilaterally passed this week. I started asking my friends to hear their thoughts. A couple plans to hasten their plan to emigrate to Taiwan, another friend asked about renewing their colonial […]

Holiday Season

The atmosphere in the city this holiday season seems to be the worst one for the past 10 years since I returned from Canada – Silent Night not so silent and Christmas Day seeing more chaotic protest news than about the birth of baby Jesus. There are a few things that lifted up my Christmas […]

(Merry) Christmas

Had dinner at home with my parents last night.  Towards the end of dinner, my dad calmly told us that one of his long time friend, an uncle who’s very close to our family, just passed away.  My mom and I were a bit shocked even though we knew that he had been battling the […]

Feeling Low

Planned to do a big cleanup of my studio last week, got started but didn’t go too far.  Feeling a little sluggish and lack of motivation lately, not entirely sure why. On the local news today was another youngster committing suicide, ramping up to a bit short of 20 cases since the start of the […]

Feeling Low

Feeling a little low lately.  I think it all started when one of my best friends declared last Friday that he’ll be moving back to Canada with his wife and near 1 year old baby.  He said he didn’t want his kid to grow up in a society that’s full of lies.  I wouldn’t blame […]
