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 […]

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. […]

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 […]

Transitioning…

Dined out with family and friends 3 times this week, a record high in recent months amidst the pandemic. The number of confirmed cases saw a small rise to low double digits this weekend, hope those were only isolated cases and that we can continue to transition back to a more healthy social state. Finally […]

The number of COVID19 cases in the city had dropped to single digits and there was 0 local cases this weekend, first time in 4 months! Happy to see more light shining at the end of this long pandemic tunnel. The pandemic is still far from over, one of the more reliable vaccines was put […]

Glimpse of Light

After a full week of gloomy weather, the sun started sneaking out again this week. The hardy white orchid I bought from a CNY market many years back seemed to notice the sun and bloomed beautifully in the light. Received a gift for helping a good family friend’s wedding back in Nov/Dec. Was hoping to […]

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 […]

Back To School

Resumed my weekly calligraphy class after stopping a couple of months due to the pandemic. We went to have lunch with our 93 y/o ex-classmate after class, the six of us had to split into 3 tables due to the still effective social-distancing measures. Happy to see my elderly classmate and teacher both healthy and […]

Continued my alternate days of working from home this week. Continued indulging in ink art while at home. One of the books on ink art I borrowed from the library earlier turned out to be really good and got me interested in pen and ink art again. Work wise, I got excited when contacted for […]
