Unusually Social Week

I’m not entirely sure why, but many of my social meetups ended up cramping into this one week and fitted perfectly into the weekly scheduling without overlapping. Other than Monday which I usually set aside for my weekly indulgence in ink art, I met up with friends every single day, probably a personal social record […]

Memorable BDay Long Weekend

Didn’t realize today (Monday) was a public holiday until last Friday. It just so happened that many of my friends meetups and farewell gatherings were scheduled perfectly within the few days with no overlapping. Met up with 5 different group of friends on 5 separate meals and 3 of which served with alcohol! This certainly […]

Home Studio

Finally finished setting up my home studio, one of the biggest projects I included on my Q2 to-do list. The most time-consuming part was the piece of custom shelving I designed and made using paper tubes and 3D-printed joints. This Shigeru-Ban-inspired system of furnitures and accessories is probably my most satisfying work during this self-conducted […]

Second Jab

Took my second COVID-19 vaccine shot yesterday evening, despite forewarned side effects I slept surprisingly well last night, but the body is still suffering from minor headaches and muscle fatigue as I’m typing up this blog post. The pandemic numbers continued to ease locally, so I continued to meet and catch up with friends to […]

A Packed Week

The past week was unusually packed with social activities. It started with Monday evening when a friend who emigrated to Taiwan came back and wanna meetup before she goes back in a week. Tuesday was packed the most. After my weekly calligraphy class in the morning, I joined my calligraphy classmate and her daughter for […]

Milestone

Since deciding to take a Sabbatical at the beginning of the year, I’ve been focusing on more R&D work at the studio. One of the projects that had me dedicating a lot of time is designing a series of Shigeru-Ban-inspired papertube furniture. After months of R&D work, I’ve finally completed a piece of functional furniture […]

First Jab

Took my first of two COVID19 vaccination needles on Friday. The past week seemed to be centred around that single event. Dined out with my parents and sister on Tuesday, they talked me out of submitting a proposal for a small commercial unit at an artsy establishment that previously turned me down. They think I […]

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 […]

Steady Progress

While having my breakfast and catching up on my daily news on Tuesday morning, a loud explosion was heard in the kitchen. Checked and found the glass lid of my months-old multifunctional electric pot completely shattered. The shocking part was that the appliance had been unplugged and left idling on top of the fridge for […]
