A busy day

06 June 2020, Saturday. It was a busy day for me. I started sketching after breakfast and kept myself busy and peaceful for the whole morning. She was once my best friend when I was 17 years old. And I haven’t seen her for a long time. Her husband was also my good friends in school. We were all in […]

My Journey

01 June 2020. Monday. It has been 2 months since Singapore government implemented the Circuit Breaker which drives many people “crazy”. And today marks the end of the circuit breaker, and our government has announced a phased approach to bring all of us back to our normal routine lives. From my observations in the past 1 week, I have noticed that besides feeling “bored to death”, Singaporeans are gradually letting their guards down, as I see more people in the neighbourhood. When COVID19 first started in China, it attracted attention from all over the world. Daily news were flooded with all sorts of information on the outbreak of the virus, with numerous videos on China’s situation and “Wuhan” virus was the number 1 topic. But most of us were just audiences though the situation in China has instilled fears in many countries and people’s hearts, causing many to rush to supermarkets to stock up items that may not be necessary. Hand sanitizers and masks went out of stock, shelves in super markets were emptied, As the virus started to spring up in every corner of the world, South Korea, Japan, then Europe and now US, it is amazing that COVID19 is no longer the hot topic and has become something that we take it as part of what is happening in the world right now. While the other countries’ cases continue to increase, we see China’s numbers maintaining around 80,000+ […]

Self Reflection

19 May 2020. Second working day of the week and I am already feeling mentally tired. I have been “bombarding” and “slamming” the team for two days, coming from the perspective to train and share with them all my knowledge and skill set. During the process, I got worked up a couple of times when I realised that I couldn’t […]

It’s really time to let go

17 May 2020. A warm but wet Sunday. I was beginning to feel strained and yet I didn’t know about it. For the whole of last week, mom would tell me that dad has been telling her that he was not feeling well and having very bad headache and she needed to go to my sister’s place to see hm. […]

Challenge

07 May 2020. Thursday. I am falling in love with sketching for now. And the more I sketched, the more I want to challenge myself to do better and better each day. Few days back, Charlene gave me a challenge to draw an Anime character for her to guess who I would be drawing. And I completed the sketch in […]

I am comforted

Who is this lady? 05 May 2020. Tuesday. It was a productive day for me as I tried to clear all my backlogs of emails that began to pile up over last week. And as I followed up on all the projects that I am handling, I found self satisfaction for I know that there isn’t any big obstacles ahead […]

Accomplishments…

 02 May 2020. Saturday night. This week has been a great week. First of all, dad is recovering, I hope. He has stopped coming over to my house and heeded my advice to stay at home since he has been feeling weak. Besides, he has acknowledged that his anxiety has got to do with the way mom treated him, and […]

Managing expectations

27 April 2020. Monday. It was another normal day on Thursday, 23 April 2020. But it was a day when I felt the warmth of friendship, as a short email popped into my eyes. The mail said: Dearest Francis, reading your recent posts, I could feel that you weren’t very happy. How are you? Is it work and life challenges […]
