day 2500 – hoarders

looking ahead to when i get my hands on one of the highest sought after commodities of covid – bumper plates. basically all fitness equipment has been out of stock since the very beginning. all fitness stores are severely depleted because everyone is hoarding. i can’t wait to have my own women’s olympic barbell and a set of bumper plates in my garage gym. a nice set of equipment to suit my needs will be expensive, but it’ll be an investment that will have great returns in years to come

day 2469 – visualization

i wasted no time the moment training squad decided to build our own squat rack. i quickly whipped up a sketchup model of how our next diy project will look like and how much material we need to obtain. i take a lot of pride in being able to do mock ups and visualization. my passion for modelling seeps through; it shows the type of attachment i have for the skillset i’ve developed through my work

day 2433 – home project

it’s been over a week since i last touched sketchup so thought it would good to take on a new personal project. not only will it satisfy my simulation craving, it’ll also allow me to keep up with my sketchup skills while passing time. after modeling my house, i would like to remodel it to make belief that i could renovate it the way i like it to be. if this turns out well, it could also be portfolio worthy

day 2419 – leave final note

working at hospitality designs has put a lot of stress and strain on me, both mentally, emotionally and physically. i was there even at my worst moments whether in a cast or on crutches, migraine or sickness. over the past few months i’ve really done everything in my powers to get all my numerous pressing deadlines. i saw the fruit of the new branding, new websites and new brochures. work either digital or in printed form that i can truly say i’m proud of. if this is the end, i’m proud of what i accomplished here

day 2302 – pajama shift

the luxury of working from home is i can wake up five minutes before and work in my pajamas. it’s a bit challenging working with one laptop-sized scree as opposed to two large monitors, but i’ve kept up. it’s been kind of good working remotely because i find my productivity level actually goes up. i also didn’t feel detached because i could use microsoft team to chat with friends within the office. the only drawback is having technical difficulties trying to connect my laptop to a conference call

day 2287 – condo modeling

i was feeling pretty emo because i couldn’t go flip, couldn’t play hockey, couldn’t workout and couldn’t do anything sports related. i was suppose to go watch my team play their game, but i really couldn’t get myself to the rink just to sit on the sideline. missing all my games and trainings made me feel dead inside. i was bored so went ahead and modeled a dream unit with the picasso galleria floorplans. i really don’t have an entertaining life besides my sports and active lifestyle

day 2280 – home arrest

the continuation of no work, no driving and little walking basically means i’m under house arrest. i was advised to put on the boot as precautions until it’s confirmed nothing is fractured or broken. i feel utterly useless right now when everything is delivered to me. i fail to see the positives in this situation, but i’m grateful for those taking care of me. i tried really hard to turn my attention to watching some tvb drama and working on my make belief model home

day 2277 – girl can dream

a design concept i’ve stayed up many late nights thinking and working on this model. i’ve really taken this concept to heart hoping one day i could own a space like this and run my own business. i imagined a space reasonably sized, but with all the necessary equipment arranged in what i deem as the most ideal layout. a space i own could never go without a personal gym space. i wonder if and when this could become a reality. i understand for this to happen, a lot of steps and obstacles must be taken, but i’ll keep dreaming in the meantime

day 2175 – render glitches

sketchup glitches getting in the way of updating hampton prototypes. what’s modeled isn’t what comes out in the interactive rendering. it’s not something that can’t be fixed, usually simply closing and reopening the file or removing the item and replacing it will do the job. most updates for the casual scheme are complete queued and waiting to be rendered. part of a renderer’s life cycle is clicking the render button and waiting for the crop to appear

day 2160 – hawaii tradeshow

back to work the day after a long weekend didn’t have me jumping out of bed for joy. i almost overslept because i had forgotten to turn on the recurring the alarm clock. good thing my fitbit alarm woke me up quarter past six. the day could have been even worse; at least i’m doing something fun like rendering for the hawaii tradeshow. no olympic lifting today like my regular tuesday because i had gone yesterday
