Writing in Bursts (For the Book) and Bursting with Thoughts

Here we are. Another week ahead!

I managed to get a fair bit of writing done over the course of the last week. If I continue to burst-write like this, I'll be able to finish the book in a couple more weeks.

That said, I am currently spending a lot of time thinking about gemology. Having visited the recent Singapore International Jewelry Expo (SIJE), I met a lecturer from the local Jewelry Design and Management International School (JDMIS) who introduced a suite of courses that they teach.

Perhaps I should learn how to make my own jewellery through metalsmithing. Obviously, it's going to cost a pretty penny but at least the tools needed for the course are included in the cost.

While at the Expo, it was fun to interact with vendors from different countries. The sharing of experiences and ideas was invigorating and I learned a lot from them. If I get a chance, I'd certainly like to visit them in their countries and observe their local culture.

Learning never gets old.
