Meetups

After isolating myself for one full week to focus on some calligraphy work, I had myself a very enjoyable weekend of meetups. It was kickstarted by a hotpot gathering at a paper artisan friendā€™s workshop on Friday night. I had the opportunity to meet many eco-conscious friends. On Saturday night, I met up with some […]

Back to Work

Returned to work on Wed. after a much needed LNY holiday to rest. Slept a lot during the holidays and managed to complete drawing all 100 postcard fai-chuns for the year of the šŸ‰. Mailed out most of them to my friends in Canada. Saw my fai-chuns displayed at a few small shops near the […]

Last 2 Weeks

The last two weeks in Toronto was a bit hectic as expected. I rushed to finish up prototyping and delivering them to friends for testing. There were also some last minute meetups to see friends before I go. On top of all that, I needed to allocate time to cleanup the basement I rented back […]

Gatheringsā€¦

It was another week of prototyping on weekdays and gatherings on weekend. Joined my friendā€™s fellowship Christmas party on Friday evening, around 100 b&s attended, felt a bit overwhelmed. Had a gathering with uni friends on Sat. afternoon. I started giving out some of the geometric STEAM kit prototypes to friendsā€™ kids to test them […]

Business Planā€¦ WIP

Set off the week being determined to write up a business plan. Other than heading out for lunch on Monday, I stayed in the rented basement until a friend tagged me to play table tennis on Friday evening. Read an example business plan and downloaded a template to help me write one for the very […]

Time Flies

Seems like yesterday when I just arrived Toronto for this Q4 break. In fact, Iā€™ve arrived here a full month already, thatā€™s one third of this self-directed ā€œco-opā€ term. So far I had completed a marathon and a personal calligraphy website project. Looked briefly into casual/part-time jobs, that made me more determined to start a […]

Fall Colors

Nearly a third of my Q4 break had passed already. So far I had completed a full marathon and a personal project. Just started looking into work and the possibility of setting up a ā€œbusinessā€ here. Ventured downtown to see an art fair on Friday, got a healthy dose of artistic inspiration out of it. […]

3rd Marathon

First mission accomplished for the Q4 break away from the studio! I was seriously lacking practice for the marathon due to the past extremely hot and wet summer that prohibited many of my planned training. I was also unprepared. I entered the race with only 1 gel pack to replenish my energy during the long […]

Procrastinatingā€¦ šŸ˜–

Thereā€™s only a bit over a week left before my scheduled Q4 break. Had been working long hours each day this past week. Finally completed a 3D printing commission and had the prints delivered and paid for. Thankful for this first ever 3D modeling and printing opportunity, it boosted my confidence in persevering in this […]

Extreme Weather

Was planning to make up for the half-marathon run that was deterred by typhoon Saola last week, but it was once again forced to cancel due to rain this week. I asked my calligraphy teacher to start half-an-hour early on Thur. evening so that I can leave early for my scheduled half-marathon run. Light rain […]
