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 […]

An Unexpected Funeral

Went out for a walk in the nearby park on this Sat. evening as I wasn’t in the mood for social activities. I could use a little solitary time to reflect on an unexpected funeral I attended this afternoon. The funeral was for my good friend’s 8-year-old daughter, Emily, whom I have never met in […]

2 Months

It has been more than 2 months since I left HK to visit Canada, where I last set foot 4 years ago. Time really flies! Have been sleeping a lot, met and caught up with many friends, and completed a spontaneous mini art project. I’ve rest enough and have seen most of my friends by […]

Second Week

Second week into my month-long vacation. Still continuing my near daily meetups with friends, and still enjoying the catch-ups and all the happy memories that arose. I’m grateful for the many good friends that God allowed me to cross paths with. Despite the many social gatherings, life is still a little boring around here, especially […]

Social Deficit

Being slightly introverted on the social scale, I’m usually not too active in asking friends out. But in the past couple of weeks, I managed to organize, meet, and catch up with many friends. Many friends were just as eager to meet up and only required a little nudge from me to organize the gatherings. […]

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 […]

1 Month of WFH

Have been working from home since early Feb. In one month’s time, I managed to get back into doing some web programming work and was able to complete 4 website update projects. After launching the final website late last night, I felt extra relaxed. With a lightened mood, I took my time to slowly stroll […]

Helping Others While WFH

Some of my CNY postcard fai-chuns started arriving their North American destinations this past week. My friends started messaging me one by one the photos of the Blessed Sleeping Tigers, I was happy receiving their messages as much as they receiving my little pieces of art. The past week had been rather gloomy. Local pandemic […]

Work From Home

Started working from home last week as the 5th pandemic wave was rather severe with daily COVID cases in the low 4 digits. Got back into doing some website work. 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 […]

Teaching Chinese Calligraphy

Had the opportunity to teach for the first time a beginner’s Chinese calligraphy class at a secondary school on Wednesday. I was very anxious yet excited. The students seemed a bit too energetic to handle at times but the teacher said they were actually better behaved than during regular class. Finally met the teacher who […]
