day 304 – uber belated birthday present

image

this birthday present came super late but it’s a perfect birthday present and its exactly what i would expect from her. from a person that i used to spend twelve hours a day together chilling and beating each other up each and every day throughout our years of highschool, i can confirm she knows me inside out

day 303 – cheers to my gym buddy

image

out late night celebrating my gym buddy’s birthday with a thai dinner, dance and karaoke kinda night. it also served as a mini reunion with my underconstruction crew which was the best team that ever came together. the team that had it all and should have won it all. we weren’t too fond of the service we received from the waiters and waitresses but the company and entertainment that counts

day 302 – familiar territory

image

erratic visits lately to fix my knee problems that’s been sidelining me for the past week. almost any kind of bending is prohibited aside from walking, this to me feels worse than imprisonment. three years today was the first time i broke my foot. how far i have come and how much i have gone through to get to this point and i will stop at nothing because i know it will only get stronger and better

day 301 – cirque du soleil totem night

image

watching cirque du soleil and eating at bullock butcher to end of the day. this would be my third cirque show and they always provide some amazing entertainment and exhilarating experience. these acrobats have insane skills, coordination and flexibility to do things most people never even imagine. wish i could pick up some of those skills, for instance some flips would be awesome

day 300 – deja vu

image

just as i thought my knee has turned the corner and fitted back in its groove, it pops back out of place. completely abused by my physio’s physical manipulation while he forcefully pushes it back into place. him at his best continually pushing my pain tolerance. restrictions order in effect that physical activity is not permitted and permission of activities must be granted. it’s also my 300th day post to date

day 299 – social bug

image

sky rocketing numbers for phone usage this time around. maybe that’s why i consistently can’t lay off my phone and definitely cannot live without it. that’s the most text messages i have ever sent and received in one billing cycle and even then it only uses fifty percentage of my allowance.

day 298 – keumgang

image

what used to be my weakest and least favourite poomsae has definitely taken big strides forward and huge leaps of improvement. fortunate to have professional photographer snap some shots while i was on one of the biggest and scariest stage of my life. so i can take a look at how i did and what i can improve upon next time. it would be a total lie if i said my nerves didn’t take over while i was on that stage and everything that happened in the ring was a blur. i hope to be back in this ring again in the near future

day 297 – knee crapped out

image

once again, back again to find out what’s wrong with my leg. started feeling random discomfort last night which soon turned to numbness and eventually to immobility. little did i know i went through last night’s class running, kicking and jumping with a dislodged knee cap. the time when I turn to physio to rescue my body. he has given me strict orders to stay off it for next two days with no activities and continue to ice regularly until he sees me again

day 296 – meteor

image

i just happen to be in the vicinity of richmond district tonight so we made a last minute decision to hang around iona beach in hopes of catching some meteor. unfortunately because of our spontaneous decision, we weren’t prepared for the cold so didn’t manage to stay long enough to catch any. next time we shall be more equipped and well prepared to stay longer and maybe even a dslr to go along with it

day 295 – strolling

image

spring is when the vancouver weather starts getting nice out. strolling outside one of the prime areas of downtown during mid afternoon to get some much needed fresh air and personal space alone. being able to walk along this path will be one of the biggest upside come summer time
