What I'm Doing Now
Updated on 12 November 2022 from Tokyo, Japan
where are you?
I came to live and work in Tokyo, Japan on 1st April 2019. Before that, I was living in Hong Kong and Singapore.
If you'd like to, please connect with me on LinkedIn.
I exercise 3 to 4 times a week. On warmer days, I like going for 5 km runs each time. On colder days, I like working out at home, with the heater on. Since I am always pressed for time, I'd go for the Insanity Max 30 series because it's only 30 minutes. On my days off, I'd try to go hiking.
I cancelled my gym membership last year because I find myself yearning for outdoor activities whenever the weather is nice.
I am always reading 2 books at any point in time. When the sun is up, I read non-fiction. When the sun sets, I read fiction. It's been this way for many years. I don't know why but I just like this arrangement.
I started this blog because it was tough to speak directly to our newer colleagues when the pandemic started. Then it became a hobby.
journal / time planner
I journal at least 30 to 60 minutes daily. I enjoy chronicling events and reflecting how I can approach things better. I also like planning my time well in ahead. I am using the Jibun Techo in 2022. I highly recommend it and I like it more than Hobonichi.
I watch at least 1 episode of 2 different TV shows everyday without fail. I don't think TV is a waste of time at all. To me, it's deliberate resting. I always watch a comedy over dinner. I love zombie shows.
explore / hiking
I enjoyed trail running in Hong Kong. Now that I am in Japan, I am grateful that it is a big country with lots of beautiful places to see. Hiking trails are easily accessible.
what is a NOW page?
I got the idea from nownownow. To quote, a now page shares "what this person is focused on at this point in their life". It is "what you’d tell a friend you hadn’t seen in a year".
