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 […]

Catching Up

Made the extra effort to catch up with my 1000 calligraphy characters goal for Q2. Completed the 100 weekly characters target plus an extra 16 to make up for the 12 I lack last week. Had quite a few meetups this past week including dinner with family on Mon, calligraphy class on Tue, lunch and […]

6 Months of Protest

Joined another city protest with my sister and brother-in-law yesterday. It has been 6 months of social unrest since the 1-million-people strong peaceful protest on June 9th. The controversial extradition bill was finally withdrawn in September, but the uncountable protests in the past 6 months had revealed many more issues in our city including government […]

Geniuses

Finally finished reading the huge biography of Einstein, love the genius who famously said “imagination is more important than knowledge”!  On top of his unquestionable scientific achievements, I also admire his humility, creativity, ability to drift off or focus in all circumstances, courage of nonconformity to authorities, and above all else, his perseverance.  At the […]

Recent Updates

It’s been awhile since I sat in front on my laptop and talk to my journal… Firstly, since this “co-op term” started at the beginning of the month, I stopped my regular morning running practice, not because of work but mainly just due to the unusually hot weather… I’ve also finished the month-long Cafe Startup […]

Half Marathon Preparation

Didn’t realize before how small HK is… A half-marathon (21K) already covers part of New Territories, Kowloon, and Hong Kong Island! Feeling anxious about my run on Sunday… p.s. Still can’t get my head around the CE address yesterday… While silly Mr. 689 has his grand but awfully vague mainland-centric agenda, I have my own […]

Running

It’s not easy to pick up the momentum again once you lose it.  I skipped my running practices last week due to laziness, and when I tried picking up again this morning, I could only run 4K, half of what I had planned to run. But it’s good that at least I tried picking up […]

Day 43

Still insisting on visiting the “Harcourt Village” weekly on Sunday nights.  Despite being already 43 days, I’m still finding new posters and other creative works every time I visit. I admire the perseverance of the students in their protest for true democracy, but I hope that they do so more wisely.  The more the Movement […]

Day 9

Visited the controversial occupied area in Mong Kok after my painting class… In contrast to last Monday where there was no single police in sight, a lot more police force was on duty tonight in the occupied area.  Despite the chain of violent events from “opponents” and the urge from Government and many honoured people […]
