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 […]

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 […]

What To Do?

Spent a couple of days this past week to finish up a 3D-printed robot arm toy for my good friend’s dad. It can now be controlled by my iPad via Bluetooth, pretty cool! My uncle’s plan to lure me back into doing more engineering work seemed to have worked and I’m now a bit hooked […]

Post-Marathon Blues?

After a very happy weekend highlighted by a marathon finish, I seemed to be experiencing a mild depression this past week. After resting the entire Monday following the marathon, I started clearing up some errands I had pushed aside. Also slowly picking up work at the studio again. Tested a few materials with the laser […]

What To Do? (2)

Early past week an organization called Wall-Fare (石牆花), which was established 9 months ago to help the pro-democracy detainees/prisoners, officially disbanded under political pressure. I was down for a couple of days. Under the imposed national security law, many pro-democracy members were detained/imprisoned for months (even year) without given public trial. With the disbandment of […]

Studio Cleanup

Have been busy cleaning up the studio in the last few weeks, it seemed like a never ending task, there’s always more things I could have organized and cleaned up further. Decided to finally call it quit for the big cleanup project last week after repotting the many plants in the studio! The city and […]

A Sad Week

Following a memorable bday long weekend, the past week was by contrast rather sad… Went to the airport to farewell an old family friend whom I know for over 30 years on Tuesday. Saw his parents and sister for the first time in many years, they obviously were sad to see their son (and 2y/o […]
