day 1551 – watch vault

i was in for a treat today as my boss was nice enough to take us on a tour around his watch vault. a vault the size of my room that had walls of three feet thick and satellite security. there i saw with my very own eyes watches from a couple hundred thousand to over a million. i especially like the collection of omega watches kept in a suitcase made of spacesuit material. one of the rare times i will see this many auctioned limited edition watches because he’s relocating his vault off work property

day 1550 – hot tennis

my daily dosage of sports doesn’t stop even when tired. playing some rusty tennis in mid day heat probably isn’t the smartest choice, but it was spontaneous alternative to a bailed hike. two plus hours out in the heat hitting balls got me pretty dark. i can’t imagine a couple more times and i’ll have enough vitamin d to have some crazy tan lines. got some quiet time in the middle of the day and quality time at night because it just isn’t a sunday without having seen

day 1549 – stick check 

struggled in the first game after taking a stinger to the knee but after a short rest, i found my legs and played a very good second game. skating on the second line is was fun; i played up to the pace of my linemates, made good plays, received passes and even cycled in the offensive zone. i think i did many right things and positional hockey. it made me feel good when guys on the bench said i played it well, though after the second bout my legs cramped and kept me from falling asleep

day 1548 – choice words


an angry parent came screaming in both mando and canto gave me all i could handle while sifu is away in asia. the more he raised his voice, the less i heard; he thought he could intimidate me, but even if i was, i couldn’t show any of it since i had to protect those below me. given the circumstances, i remained very calm and made sure he didn’t cross my line. i was startled being my first time dealing with such situation, but the fact that i held my ground made him back off. in the end i got some choice words for the angry parent that disrupted my class. one more step forward, and i probably would have called the police

day 1547 – sushiuomo

i quite like the new place we found and the temakis that was served. it was a feel good kind of day because i felt encouraged at work when my manager told me he praised me during the management meeting for how well i’ve been developing the new collection and the rhythm the technical team is in. makes me understand that my hard work isn’t transparent and good managers will always be there to let you know that

day 1546 – dugout view

playing softball with this back drop is quite the pleasure. i’m still thinking about the ump’s strike zone that made me strikeout. how can a pitch be called strike when i have to step back to avoid getting hit by the pitch?? playing first base is always fun and it always makes it better after making a few good plays. our opponent may be a tier above, but it turns out they’re a bunch of douchebags with poor sportsmanship

day 1545 – wisking 

after doing plenty of research, i’m going through the do it myself route. handpicked a few recipes that contains ingredients i readily have in my kitchen. i keep putting off picking up protein bars, so might as well roll up my sleeves and wisk some myself. if this turns out well, i might actually have something to eat on friday. it was a pretty simple process, but the washing and cleaning time took as long as making the bars
