Meetups

After isolating myself for one full week to focus on some calligraphy work, I had myself a very enjoyable weekend of meetups. It was kickstarted by a hotpot gathering at a paper artisan friend’s workshop on Friday night. I had the opportunity to meet many eco-conscious friends. On Saturday night, I met up with some […]

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 […]

Gatherings…

It was another week of prototyping on weekdays and gatherings on weekend. Joined my friend’s fellowship Christmas party on Friday evening, around 100 b&s attended, felt a bit overwhelmed. Had a gathering with uni friends on Sat. afternoon. I started giving out some of the geometric STEAM kit prototypes to friends’ kids to test them […]

3rd Marathon

First mission accomplished for the Q4 break away from the studio! I was seriously lacking practice for the marathon due to the past extremely hot and wet summer that prohibited many of my planned training. I was also unprepared. I entered the race with only 1 gel pack to replenish my energy during the long […]

LEGO Minifigs

My studio neighbour stopped by on Mon. and talked about a project that needed to make figurines for a diorama display. After some discussions, he decided to make custom Lego minifigs. While experimenting and prototyping, I got carried away and shrunk my studio’s mascot into the scale of Lego minifigs. When the custom designed and […]

It started from the letterpress sharing session on Fri afternoon, I learnt about the inspiring story of Robert Morrison inventing the Hong Kong Font (香港字) letterpress to assist in preaching the gospel. I also […]

Busy Week

It had been a busy week. Mon and Tue was spent mostly with my parents to renew IDs and accompany my mom to see her doctor. Squeezed in some adhoc time to work from home. The weekly seal carving class ended last week, but I found time to finish off a “masterpiece” that I started […]

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 […]

KOKB Launched!

Ran the last mile and felt relieved after finally launching a website I had been working on since LNY holidays. The site is far from perfect, sometimes it doesn’t even load at all, but it’s a WIP and should be good enough at this stage. The site can be found here: KOKB.site The web project […]

Post-COVID Plan?

Had dinner at one of the usual restaurants near the studio on Fri. The restaurant owners seemed especially happy seeing me dining-in, they mentioned that it had been 3 years since I last dined in. It felt strange but true, having lived through the long years of pandemic still seemed like a surreal experience. Have […]
