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 […]

Hello Q4

The pace of time can seem very different at times. When you are with people you like, time seems to zip right by. But when you are practicing for a marathon, the clock seems to slow down and the agony seems to last forever. I may have missed to say goodbye to Q3 if not […]

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 […]

Goodbye 2020

New Year came on Friday, but the atmosphere during the long weekend was the least festive I’ve ever experienced. The world seems more glad to see 2020 pass than hopeful to welcome 2021. I spent the long weekend wrapping up a couple of projects in the studio. Reviewing 2020, there wasn’t much accomplishments to speak […]

Escape Continues…

Continuing my escape from the gloomy reality of a declining city and an unceasing pandemic. The public library was closed again, so I couldn’t continue my reading of the Midnight Diner comic series. I switched to spending more time in experimenting with real culinary arts. My theme in the past week was making all-day breakfasts […]

Website Refreshed

Haven’t posted any updates for a couple of weeks because I got stuck while refreshing this website. It’s been too long since I last did any web programming, so backing up, refreshing, debugging, and relaunching this personal blog took a lot longer than I planned. With my little online space cleaned and renewed, I’ll likely […]

Isolation Continues

The COVID-19 has become a global pandemic, whether WHO has the guts to announce it or not! There is seriously no denying of it as it has caused serious local community outbreaks in South Korea, Japan, Iran, Italy, etc. Life under isolation feels a bit suffocating. Admittedly, I’m not too social to begin with, but […]

Week of Meetups

In midst of the lingering and worrisome protests that are happening everywhere in our city on a nearly daily basis, I managed to keep my social life intact and engaged in many rare and satisfying meetups this week… It started off with a buffet lunch to celebrate my calligraphy classmate’s 91st bday on Tuesday! I […]

(Tri) Weekly Update

Don’t know where I’ve spent all my time in the past few weeks, let me think… My first mini art exhibition started more than a week ago. Using the exhibition as an opening conversation, I managed to contact many friends I haven’t messaged for months, and I got back many congratulations in return. Frankly, it […]
