After last month's (dare I say it) "success" in finishing my novel, I decided that what really gave me the ability to follow through and finish the book was the fact that I had a lot of supporters encouraging/cheering/reading along with me. So first, thanks to everyone who participated for that.
But I thought that I shouldn't let something like that end with just one project. So I've decided to pick something else to do this month. What is it?
I call it "25 f...Read more
I usually don't embed random videos in my blog, but this one is really funny...
And so we come to the epilogue of my little series of blogs about my teacher's visit to Hong Kong.
On Tuesday morning I came to the office and then made my way over to the Shun Tak Center's Macau Ferry Termi...Read more
Yesterday afternoon I was talking with Cynda online and she mentioned the NaNoWriMo was this month. The what? It turns out it is National Novel Writing Month. The gist of it is, you sign up and try to write a 50,000 word novel in the course of the month of November.
I'm trying to do a filming project with Wu Di. Basically a music video with training montages and wushu in it, but I'm going to do it in a different way than most of the generic, run-of-the-mill ones are done.
So, I made this teaser trailer with some footage I took in Guangzhou. Some of it might be used in the final project, or it might not. But just felt creative so I made this for your viewing pleasure.
As mentioned, I recently journeyed to Fuzhou (the capital of Fujian province on the southeastern coast of China) to visit my friends competing at the 2007 China Men's Nationals. The event itself started on the 5th, so with my arrival on the evening of the 6th, I wasn't able to watch the first two days. However, since my main motivation for attending was to see friends and not wushu, it ended up working out quite well.
Note: I welcome your comments, but please read what I have written in it's entirety and think about what I'm trying to say before providing your feedback. Not everyone is required to make a comment, but for those who feel so compelled, your careful consideration and attention are very much apprecaited.
The other day I met someone from the Philippines. We had a short conversation, but it was a conversation that I'm seem to have quite often since moving to Asia (and especially since moving to Ho...Read more
Not much has been happening outside of the standard routine of going to work in the morning and going home in the evening, so there hasn't been much to blog about. However, I've been organizing a lot of my media files and thought that if my present isn't all that interesting, perhaps it wouldn't hurt to revisit my past.
The other day when I was walking around Tung Chung with my dad I happened upon a small flyer advertising piano lessons. I had noticed that my apartment complex had piano practice rooms and was thinking about going down and getting in a bit of practice from time to time so this was rather fortuitous. I jotted down the email address to check on the cost of lessons.
After contacting the teacher, I learned that Hong Kong (and apparently a lot of other countries) use a system of levels and grades to determine piano skill ...Read more
I should probably finish up the Shanghai trip blog before I forget what happened while I was there.
Truth be told, the rest of the trip was sort of a blur. Not because it went by quickly, but because I was in such a mental haze for the next two days.
After the last blog was written, I kept working at the City Diner for another hour or two and then headed back to Tam's apartment to crash. I fell asleep around 10:30. At 2:30 I got a call from Tam that Faye was bringing someoe over to look at the apartme...Read more
