day 31 – late night bbt

image

at this hour, the only places that were open to serve food was defaulted between taiwanese restaurant if not a bar . not craving whitey food this late at night, so beefy beef it was. having late night bubble tea kind of night and catching up with a highschool friend i haven’t seen in a while. it’s incredible so much as changed since highschool, but we will learn to grow in some form

day 30 – my kind of accessory

image

fresh out of the package and sporting my new mini tennis ball keychain. been looking for this keychain for a long long time and its finally in my own hand. good thing the shipment arrived just in time for us open this year. and not to forget its andy roddick’s birthday today, happy 31st!!

day 29 – look what i found

image

this all happened after we watched and re-watched the coach carter movie. a contract we signed in black and white years ago that would give the rights of our soul to the other. little did we know this agreement still stands today and until the end of our days. how much we have changed since and how everything is still the same, just like yesterday. don’t ever change

andy roddick tribute

just thought this was worth sharing

as 2013 us open kicks off this week, it inevitably reminds me of what happened a year ago…

he had me at the first sight. from an explosive youngster to his prime and beyond, i watched him pound tennis balls on hardcourt. i watched him beat my then favourite player pete sampras, break fastest serve records, played marathon matches, held numerous titles, and won us open 2003. but most importantly, watched him grow into the player and competitor i came to love and idolized. without question, roddick played with passion and showed that he had a big heart, heart of a champion. i remember feeling the deep sorrow when he announced his retirement at last year’s us open. no matter what, roddick will always be my favourite tennis player of all time. thanks for all the memories and good times you have provided all your fans and wish you nothing but the best.

i miss watching and cheering for you.

at one point in your life you’ll have the thing that you want or the reason why you don’t
-andy roddick (on his career)

day 28 – border

image

at peace arch post between canada and america waiting for the line of car to move ever so slowly. unexpectedly long lineup to cross the border just to pick up my tennis gear and of course fill up some cheaper gas at blaine. wished i had something better to do and someone to keep me company

day 27 – need a push

image

think i finally set a much needed goal and found promising motivator to push myself to reach this goal. as history shows, i rely on someone to consistently push me and kick me in the butt to keep me on track and remind me whenever i am slacking. hopefully this is what will keep me grounded
