This weekend, I cleared my bills, organised medical records for family, filed my nails, bought presents, bought travel insurance, wrapped presents, cycled while listening to podcast; played Pokemon, binged watched 愛回家(till episodes 885) &開心速遞, wrote my diary and read a book.

Most tedious is buying presents. Note to self : start early next year via online purchase so that I don’t need painkillers for backache and knee pain from walking without a clue what to buy.








I周刊今天最後一期。從前身的電視周刊到今天的I-weekly, 跨越了三十多年, 但敵不過時代的轉變。不捨每個周日一邊喝咖啡一邊翻雜誌的小確幸。日後,在網上見。


Another month just passed by ….

Health wise, leg wasn’t as painful before but hand is getting painful from typing. Overworked burnout Asian.

My leg wasn’t painful, probably because I didn’t walk as much before. Barely hit 10,000 steps on most days. Partly busy, partly avoiding the sun.

Gaining weight because of inactivity and binged eating.

Still playing Pokemon but it is feeling like tasks rather than hobby. Barely touch piano tiles nowadays.

Spent $$$ on online shopping. But, so far, I am liking and using the stuff that I bought. Also, been buying many products to protect face such as moisturiser, mist, screen protectors.

Managed to read two books despite being busy.

Also, stepped into the cinema for the first time this year to watch Crazy Rich Asian. The best part of the movie is the first 5 minuets .

Have an extremely short vacation doing nothing.

  • Next month, need to eat healthily, sleep more and exercise more. Taking care of myself instead of pouring myself into never ending work.
  • Eat,Play,Work

    Didn’t update this blog for more than a month.

    How I spent my May :

    Been working extremely hard. Busy does not equal to productivity. So much things are not up to my control.

    Bringing parents for medical checkups.

    Usually eat alone with low expectations of food. But happy that do have gatherings with old friends, new colleagues and family members.

    Still playing Pokémon. Been going many places just to spin new pokestops just for the extra points. Been catching and raiding to catch shinies with no success. Been watching concerts. Been overseas for holidays and staycation with family. Walk too much for this game.

    Binged watch 愛。回家.

    Read a few books, including Invoices which is about invoice for emotions.

    Played in the pools although I can’t swim.

    Cycled for two hours. Tiring but happy.
