End of Q1

Many things seem to be ending in March before the start of a new fiscal year. 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 […]

Back to Work

Still haven’t fully unpacked my luggage from the 3-month co-op term. And I caught a flu not long after returning. With a bit of reluctance, I made my way back to the studio on Monday as planned prior to the trip. Almost every thing at the studio seemed exactly the same as when I left […]

“Special Day”

It was a super hot and muggy week. I started going back to work earlier in the morning for the sake of AC. After completing the custom chop for the studio’s new “resident artist”, I started prototyping some postcard-sized calligraphy artwork which I hope to make available online in coming weeks. Today marks the 34th […]

Easter

After more than a week of gloomy days, the sun was finally spotted today before it sank below the horizon. This weather is actually a good reminder of Easter in that it was all gloom and doom when Jesus was nailed on the cross, and it wasn’t until the resurrection that light and hope finally […]

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!! […]

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 […]
