My Very Own DIY Midori Notebook

Posted in Exploration on / Leave a comment

Over the past 1+ year, I’ve been using a faux leather notebook. Unfortunately, in the recent weeks, some of its parts started to disintegrate. Though, as a whole, the notebook was not usable, the faux leather was still in pretty good condition. It would be a waste to throw it away. While searching for a replacement notebook, I learnt about the …

Complexity Science and Chinese Philosophy

Posted in Blog on / Leave a comment

I’m currently involved in a project that is attempting to bridge Complexity Science with Chinese Philosophy. I’m really excited about it! When I first heard about “Complexity Science”, I was quite puzzled.

(It’s an obscure model) Me: You should knit your own phone casing! (She’s really good at knitting) Friend: I did! And then, she took this out: Oh …

Table Lamp Project

Over the past three weeks, I’ve been busy building my own table lamp. Unfortunately, I can’t seem to find the table lamp that I wanted. I remember seeing a particular design months ago, but I couldn’t find it on sale again. So I decided, it’s probably better to build my own. The first thing I did was to go to …

DIY Magnetic Buttons!

Posted in Blog on / Leave a comment

The most useful and amazing skill that I’ve learn while serving National Service is this: learning how to make your own labels and magnetic buttons with ordinary stationary. Yeah… I was a clerk during my NS. Both my knee caps came out and thus the downgrade (and I’m crazy enough to do kungfu!). Anyway… This has been one of the …

Origami Neko Returns!

Posted in Blog on / Leave a comment

Just for the fun of it, I brought Origami Neko to school today! I folded this origami cat several months ago. Decided that it’s time to bring it out for a walk. As you can see, Origami Neko loves philosophy! Looking at what he reads, I think it’s safe to assume that he’s an analytic cat philosopher. I meow, therefore …
