day 2161 – smoked salmon pinwheel

the best thing about coming home late is still having homemade food by my mom. these smoked salmon tortilla wrapped pinwheels taste is unmatched because it’s made with so much care. no matter what time of the day, my mom will gladly prepare food for me and make sure i don’t starve. i played up a big appetite after returning home from my sports activities and ate all of that

day 1938 – taikwun

a full day of fun hanging out with friends. i can’t say enough about how much i appreciate them taking time out to chill during my visit. it’s too bad we didn’t get to go up to the peak, but there was so much more we could explore and eat. we toured around the former hong kong prison and police station, walked around central area, then all the way to causeway bay. the eating tour continues which started with famous egg tarts and finished off with some curry beef omlette. another twenty five thousand steps logged which is good cause i have lots of calories waiting to be burned

day 1696 Рtreading 

originally feeling pretty crummy after a day of work and taekwondo combo, and really didn’t feel like going to do any running. the perfect sign of gym rat when you autonomously drive and end up at the gym. since i was already there i might as well give it my best shot at completing today’s pre-planned workout. as i was running, i was confused why i even wanted to do this in the first place. i felt a weird appreciation for myself for having made it through the duration even when i did not want to. the size of the task wasn’t the focal point, but the fact i took on something that was challenging to me. i left the gym all smiles, but for sure feeling much better than i walked in

day 1658 – plant for a day

it’s a statutory holiday but here i am putting in work and getting dusty in the icon plant because they need it. it was labour intensive work with lots of loading, lifting, carrying and cutting. though i have no intention to work in a plant, i acquired new skills such as routering, edge banding, spraying, laminating and cnc-ing; all these will help me do and understand my job better. in the end i even cut and assembled a foot stool for my own desk. it was loud with all the machines and fans running, appreciation for the plant workers who can withstand eight hours of this noise

here’s a little side thought of the moment. i find myself always helping, always accommodating and always putting others well being before mine but sadly i don’t get the same in return. many of my efforts and achievements are undermined; taking what i do ¬†and give for granted and ends up being borderline inconsiderate. not that i seek recognition; if it’s seen, it’s seen, i’m tired of trying show that i care. life is a two way street and sometimes being appreciative is a good thing. just snowballing and needed to get it off my chest

day 1223 – final final

i’ve had enough of this final project in the past seventy two hour; uploading this bad boy for submission because it is as done as it will ever get and i’ve stared at this enough with little progress. now it is time to turn my attention to the final exam that’s also tomorrow. i’m going to appreciate sleep so much more after tomorrow. the minute i’m home on wednesday, i intend on doing nothing but watch drama and sleep

day 1119 – demeanour

sometimes when you get comfortable seeing something you forget to appreciate the little things that surround you. taking things for granted happens; it happens with things, it happens with people. i guess i can’t be too bothered because a good day at the gym cancels it out and also makes up for my last subpar performance. i am happy i made new ground today and i know there’s more to come. once again, it reminds me pr’s are meant to be broken, limits are meant to be surpassed and goals are meant to be reached
