🌏 Weekend

It was Earth Day on Friday, I seized the opportunity to do some gardening and pampered the many succulents in the studio. Earth Day became Earth Weekend. On Sat., after having dim sum lunch with my family (my first dine-in since the 5th pandemic wave), I went home and cleaned up my little green corner. […]

A Time For Sorrow

There’s a time for joy and a time for sorrow. Following a happy reunion with my UW gang and coffee with the girl-I-like after more than a year of pandemic craziness, news of sickness and death started coming in from people around me. First, my colleague told me her husband’s intestinal cancer had metastasized into […]

Father’s Day

When you were young and didn’t know any better, you were prone to make all kinds of silly unrealistic promises…  I think I was 7 or 8 years old when I made the bold promise of buying a Rolls-Royce and hiring a chauffeur for my father.  Years passed, but both my father and I still […]

Running

Went for my weekly dose of endorphin, jogged for a full 10k in 67 minutes.  I experimented with a new psychological exercise while jogging today, for each of the laps, I tried to recall the memories when I was at the age equal to the number of laps I had finished.  I jogged for a […]

August 25th

Something seems to be special about August 25th. It was this day 4 years ago that I moved back from Toronto to HK, and here I am 4 years later waiting for my flight back to HK and putting an end to my awesome Hawaiian vacation. I just can’t seem to escape from the busy, […]

Crazy friends! Anyway, we finally launched our […]

R.I.P. Steve Jobs

Heard the sad news of Steve Jobs’ death this morning.  Sad because we have lost a true visionary who had brought forth so many breakthrough technologies, touching and transforming the lives of so many people.  Sad also because he’s also one of the very few people I look up to.  In remembrance of SJ, I […]

Mid-Autumn 2011

The weather was great tonight, no rain, and no clouds to block the brightly-lit and perfectly round moon.  Had dinner with my family at my brother’s place downstairs, I think it was the same last year, this is becoming another one of our family traditions!  Slightly differently this year is that my father invited his […]

30 + 2

I’m really thankful that my friends remembered my birthday and treated me for dinner, the cake was an added surprise.  I had the feeling that I’m getting too old for cakes and surprises however, just the gathering of good ol’ friends is more than satisfying for me. Looking back my 30+2 years, I’m much grateful […]

Big Meals

Had a big all-day-breakfast for lunch at around 2pm, I was still not too hungry when I met my ex-colleagues for dinner at 7pm.  The portion for the dinner was even bigger than lunch, I managed to finish it, but my stomach was feeling unhealthily full throughout the night.  The conversations with the couple of […]
