Prepping For Social-Distancing

The city did not enter lockdown. In fact, for months our city had zero COVID cases recorded in the community thanks to one of the most stringent border quarantine controls and the mask-wearing norm of people in public. Despite ceasing the COVID spread in the community, the government continued to tighten the pandemic measures and […]

Memorable BDay Long Weekend

Didn’t realize today (Monday) was a public holiday until last Friday. It just so happened that many of my friends meetups and farewell gatherings were scheduled perfectly within the few days with no overlapping. Met up with 5 different group of friends on 5 separate meals and 3 of which served with alcohol! This certainly […]

Home Studio

Finally finished setting up my home studio, one of the biggest projects I included on my Q2 to-do list. The most time-consuming part was the piece of custom shelving I designed and made using paper tubes and 3D-printed joints. This Shigeru-Ban-inspired system of furnitures and accessories is probably my most satisfying work during this self-conducted […]

Second Jab

Took my second COVID-19 vaccine shot yesterday evening, despite forewarned side effects I slept surprisingly well last night, but the body is still suffering from minor headaches and muscle fatigue as I’m typing up this blog post. The pandemic numbers continued to ease locally, so I continued to meet and catch up with friends to […]

Milestone

Since deciding to take a Sabbatical at the beginning of the year, I’ve been focusing on more R&D work at the studio. One of the projects that had me dedicating a lot of time is designing a series of Shigeru-Ban-inspired papertube furniture. After months of R&D work, I’ve finally completed a piece of functional furniture […]

Easter Holiday

In preparing for this long Easter holiday weekend, I rushed into finishing my first prototype of a Shigeru-Ban-inspired papertube furniture in the studio. Also went for a haircut, first cut in more than 6 months I think. My weekly community running clinic also ended just before the holidays. The studio’s building was cutting electricity for […]

Escape Continues…

Continuing my escape from the gloomy reality of a declining city and an unceasing pandemic. The public library was closed again, so I couldn’t continue my reading of the Midnight Diner comic series. I switched to spending more time in experimenting with real culinary arts. My theme in the past week was making all-day breakfasts […]

Independence… Restarted

During a time when the mere hint of independence seemed taboo in our city, I moved back to my minimalist independent unit after the 3-months long third wave pandemic that claimed the lives of about a hundred individuals (mostly elderly). Originally planned to move next week instead, but an argument with my mom hastened the […]

Work From Home (again)

Was still on the fence early in the week as to whether to move back with my parents amid the increasing severity of the pandemic in my new home’s neighborhood. Decision was made for me on Wednesday as a confirmed COVID-19 case was reported in my building and my family unequivocally wanted me to move […]

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 […]
