Busy and Tiring Week

After slacking off the previous week, the past week had been relatively busy and tiring. Much of my time and effort was spent cleaning up the studio to prepare for some important guests to visit on Sat. Another large chunk of time was spent outside the studio to meet with friends and family, that included […]

Vacation Started

After a few hectic days of finishing up my studio work, cleaning my home, and packing, I officially started my month-long Canadian vacation on June 8th. I flew with my friend’s family of 4 who were moving back to Canada, and thanks to him, I got a free ride to the airport. Lucky for the […]

Let’s Run!!

Originally had my eyes set on a marathon in Toronto in October so as to give myself an excuse to temporarily escape this depressed city and visit my other home and my family and friends there. But due to the marathon pandemic, the full marathon will only happen virtually this year, in-person run will be […]

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 […]

A Packed Week

Joined my fellowship b/s for lunch on Tue. after my calligraphy class. Went to see a movie on Wed. with some fellowship brothers. It’s good that they still didn’t seem to see me as an outsider even though I stopped joining my Friday night fellowship since the pandemic started more than a year ago. The […]

Canada Day

There are a few commonalities between my 2 homes – Hong Kong and Canada. Their flags are colored in red and white and include a symbolic flora, and they both share a public holiday on July 1st. In HK, the handover of a colonial democratic government to a brutal dictator regime on July 1st 1997 […]

Fatigue

Being somewhat of an introvert, I sometimes feel exhausted after social events. I’m more at ease doing things solo. But after months of adhering to social distancing rules, I’m starting to feel exhausted, lacking motivation and patience, and easily irritated. Perhaps I’m finally feeling what many experts are calling pandemic-fighting fatigue (抗疫疲勞). February also heightened […]

Mid-Autumn Festival

The Mid-Autumn Festival this year coincided with China’s National Day. With political conflicts piling up and unresolved and a pandemic easing but never seems to cease, the atmosphere this year seemed worst for the 10 years since I returned to HK. There was no celebration to speak of other than eating a moon cake for […]
