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 […]

Happy Weekend

Had a very happy weekend! Woke up really early on Friday in order to adjust my sleeping hours to match the early marathon on Sunday. Decided to go and try to find my lost 9x year old Chinese calligraphy classmate for he told me before where he goes to have daily early morning dim sums. […]

T8 Lion Rock

The city hoisted its first Typhoon 8 signal in 2021 this morning. I had been waiting all day for it to be lifted so I can go back to the studio to finish up some work I left unfinished last night. To my disappointment, Typhoon Lion Rock was unexpectedly strong and T8 was hoisted the […]

Mid-Autumn 2021

My family already had our Mid-Autumn dinner on Sunday, so I was free to do whatever I wish on this full moon night. Thought about going for a running practice, but was a bit lazy to go out after arriving home. Frankly, I’m not in much of a celebration mood this year, it’s a bit […]

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 […]

What To Do?

Work seems to be picking up after my (half) Sabbatical and studio cleanup, made a new batch of business cards before meeting up a couple of potential collaborators in the past week. In our conversations, I did not hide my plans of possibly moving the business to Canada in the near future as I had […]

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 […]

Sabbatical Ended

The opening of the embattled and postponed Tokyo 2020 Olympics also marked the end of my self-conducted (half) Sabbatical. Thought about continuing the rather fruitful Sabbatical till the end of year, but it felt like the right time now to finally get myself out of this marathon pandemic rut and get serious with my life. […]

Back To Work…

Easing back to work after the super long Easter holidays. Reviewed my Q1 goals while writing up new Q2 goals. Continue to plan my new work in anticipation of a new normal after the pandemic. Rearranged some tables in the studio to make room for more R&D and prototyping work. Also ordered some furniture to […]

Easter Holiday

In preparing for this long Easter holiday weekend, I rushed into finishing my first prototype of a Shigeru-Ban-inspired papertube furniture in the studio. Also went for a haircut, first cut in more than 6 months I think. My weekly community running clinic also ended just before the holidays. The studio’s building was cutting electricity for […]
