Rainy Week

It has been cloudy and rainy all week long. The gloomy weather seems to match the many downcast faces seen on the streets. The 5th pandemic wave has eased with daily confirmed COVID cases in the low 3 digits and related deaths in single digit, however, the gloomy atmosphere in the city seems like it […]

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 […]

Easter Weekend

The Easter long weekend provided a good time for people to head outside for a little breather from the exhausting pandemic marathon. The streets were flooded with people as a result. I was still awaiting […]

100 Blessings (cont’d)

Many of the messages came with a photo of the cards received. They were proofs that my friends liked and cherished my little […]

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 […]

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 […]

Social Week

Received a very thoughtful Christmas mail from a very sweet friend in Canada early this past week. Another friend in US asked for my updated address to send his yearly greetings. I’m truly grateful to be in the mind of friends during the holiday seasons. Without them, I may have forgotten it was already December!! […]
