day 2480 – self cupping

was looking into recovery remedies and remembered my dad had bought a cupping set from china years ago. pulled it out of my drawer and randomly applied some on my ailing shoulder. i had no idea what i was doing, but there’s no harm since it’s been bothering me for months and i haven’t been able to see my chiropractor or physio. part of me hopes there’s some kind of magic or miracle in this

day 2347 – exposure bubbles

six days into the new year is earlier than i’d like to break the bubble tea streak. since i was having the first of the year, i might as well go for their top pick – exposure supreme milk tea. it was premium milk tea loaded with pearls and pudding. at least i can justify it by having burned some calories prior to the enjoyment. hopefully i’ll last much longer without breaking the fast food streak

day 2090 – vita galore

i haven’t drank vita lemon tea for a really long time, until i downed four boxes over this weekend. still reminiscing the team trip and wished i didn’t didn’t have to go home so soon. waking up monday morning after a long weekend is usually one of the most difficult thing to do. i don’t want to go back to work and the life of my normal daily routines. i can only look forward to the next day off i have

day 1329 – mothering me

img_20200204_1609331083885442243107174.jpgfamily will always be family and i am grateful to have caring ones. last night my mom said i was pale, this morning she handed me bottles and said i need to replenish the blood i lost. these red dates doesn’t taste good but i’ll drink it to give her a peace of mind. my mom was clearly more concerned than i was. at the end of the day, i know my mom cares for me more than i know it and still treats me her little girl

day 1006 – mi beats

image

small mi headphones for my beats came in today. it came through my mailbox well protected in a very sleek looking box, packaged so neatly and delicately. i have never bought a small mi product before but reviews show this is a popular item for consumers. being made in china, it’s one of those hit or miss things. if it works as well as it looks, it will be a replacement for my existing headphones. i can’t wait to test them out in the gym

day 920 – stomach upheaval

image

how a chinese new year feast can throw me off my game. i am feeling sick after eating this meal since my regular practice is not accustomed to the grease. i do not wish to eat another one of these meals for a while, my stomach prefers my meal prepping more than ever. i guess that’s why i’m a picky eater and all i’m saying is i choose my food carefully

day 807 – recipe

image

rather than asking me how i am doing in her absence, the first message mom sent me since leaving town was because she wanted this recipe to be sent to her in a hurry. but in case she’s interested in knowing, i am doing just fine and racing through my hectic schedule, which is nothing new. i guess she’s had enough of eating out everyday and must really want to cook in hong kong

day 786 – medicine

image

i don’t know what happened overnight but my throat has been uber dry all day. taking some medication before going to bed, but before that, i wanted to eat some homemade ice cream. i could try to make an argument that the ice cream is actually the cure to all throat problems, but i have no scientific evidence to back that up so i decided i wouldn’t even try to defend myself

day 742 – success dinner

image

another annual success walk with the dragon appreciation dinner in the books. typical asian dinners with plates coming every so often, where you will always see food left on the table. and food just keeps coming even though everyone at the table is stuffed.  not all the dishes were suitable for me, but perks of being a small eater cause i was pretty much full after the few appetizer dishes. got myself a lucky draw tee that doesn’t fit me, but a win is a win.

day 736 – night snacking

image

so happy it’s already humpday wednesday and halfway through!! i can’t express my love for long weekends accounting for short weeks because it makes getting through the week that much easier. it would be a perfect paradise if three day weekends existed every week. man, people are such bad influences on me for tempting me to do night snacking that i could not refrain from. i do feel a little guilty after devouring that toast box
