A Good Week

The past week was probably the best week I had since returning to this city in mid-Sept. Took a day off on Wed. to visit the M+ Museum for the first time with a friend. Felt like a tourist in this city that seems to be getting more and more unfamiliar to me. Met and […]

One Month

Was about to leave home to meet friends for dinner when I spotted the bright full moon rising from Kowloon Peak. It reminded me that I had returned to this deteriorating city for one full month. Life seems to be returning to what it used to be before the 3-month long summer vacation in Canada. […]

Friends

Started meeting and catching up with friends after returning to HK and completing the useless 10 days of COVID testing required by the government. I thought most of the people who planned to leave this deteriorating city already left by the time the summer was over, but I was wrong. A friend already left for […]

Back To Reality

As much as I wished to further extend my 3-month long summer vacation in Canada, I inevitably needed to face reality and returned to my deteriorating birth city on Sept. 7th. It took about 3 hours from the time my plane landed to get through the airport’s pandemic measures and customs and finally arrive at […]

A New Chapter?

The city had appointed its new CE on Mother’s Day, a foreseeable authoritarian chapter will officially begin on July 1st. It’s sad to witness the once free and creative city deteriorate and people emigrating and separated from their families. Life goes on… My weekly calligraphy class had finally resumed since the 5th pandemic wave began […]

WFH… Counting Down M(art)ch Break

Daily COVID cases has continued to decline this week to 4 digits. The government also officially scrapped the citywide testing that was planned for March, it might still happen in April, nothing is certain nowadays with our ever changing and often confusing and unscientific government policies. Regardless, I feel slightly relieved. The declining COVID cases […]

Finished backing up and updating the design of this personal website and was more than halfway done for one of my studio websites. Working in […]

100 Blessings

Started the mini art project of drawing 100 Blessed Sleeping Tigers (躺平福虎) on handmade paper. Finished drawing half of them, will start mailing out the postcard fai-chuns tomorrow. Contacted many old friends to get their mailing addresses and the 4-letter fai-chun greetings they liked me to write. This mini art project turned out to be […]

Social Isolation

The government announced that it will extend its current unreasonably strict pandemic measures for 2 more weeks into the CNY holidays. Besides my weekly calligraphy class meetup and a consultation session at a paper artisan workshop, my time this week was mostly spent at the studio and at home. Had a funny thought this morning […]

5th Pandemic Wave

The 5th pandemic wave had officially arrived in HK according to the government officials and their consulting experts. Around 30 or so COVID cases were reported daily in the past few days. The government rolled out one of the strictest pandemic measures on Friday and banned all eateries dine-in after 6pm. The latest pandemic measure […]
