day 1715 – ready player one 


girls night out to watch ready player one and eat teishoku. tuesdays are known for two things: taco tuesday and cheap movie night. this is the way asians think to get the best bang for buck; otherwise regularly priced at twenty four dollars. aotoya was good, but the service was so slow we literally waited forty minutes before food was served. as such, it made me miss my basketball game which was disappointing, but i was too hungry to pack it and go

day 1432 –  strathcona 

it was neat to spectate a strathcona and china team basketball game. up until halftime was a good paced game and close matchup. it’s been a long time since i last played or5ganized basketball. it brought back a lot of memories of the hamber hardwood days and how i wished it never ended. i really do miss it but i was told to give it up for the sake of my knee. even though my knee has gotten stronger through the years of rebuilding it, i’ll forever be reminded how long and hard that road was

day 1201 – oval day

image
we don’t go to the richmond olympic oval often, but when we do, we pack our day at the oval with nonstop events. warmed up with some basketball shoot around, rallied and had a friendly badminton match before hitting the main event – fitness centre. so thrilling to be olympic lifting on platforms for the first time and dropping them like a boss without receiving death glares. first platform experience and i made it worthwhile by setting a clean pr. after all that, ended our night swinging away at the batting cage. we rarely have days like this to ourselves, but i definitely enjoyed the day

day 1158 – court side

i have watched many of their games on television, so stoked to be watching this game on court side. both are amongst my favourite teams, so i wasn’t rooting for either side. seeing curry, thompson and derozan felt like a once in a lifetime opportunity. this is still preseason, but i hope that matchup happens again in the playoffs, rogers arena was jam packed; i also bumped into at least ten people i knew

day 1142 – leisure reading

slowly but surely my back is able to lift a little more with a little less pain. i’ve been pushing and testing the water for the past two weeks and now i’m almost back to my normal weights. still have to stay away from some lifts and movements until my range increases, but something is better than nothing. my limbs are fatigued but very happy with what my body will allow me to do. getting a head start on the presents i received from mo. he knows my interest within sports and my preference for leisure reading. doms already hit me; i’ll sit back and enjoy my new toys while my legs continue to tear itself apart

day 994 – three championships

image

from handball, to volleyball, to basketball to dodgeball, we’ve been to many finals through the past decade. thinking of all the things we say to each other, the endless pain we inflict on each other, but in the end, the amount of crap we take to play together. this is the love hate relationship we have created; i can’t imagine playing on any of these teams being as much fun without you. we’ve won three dodgeball championships together, this is by far the most memorable and satisfying one because it was so hard earned against our teammates. let’s keep it going

day 684 – golden state’s game

image

forget about training today, i am sitting back to enjoy game 5 basketball finals. after a disappointing game 4, i still believe it is golden state’s series to win especially because i do not want lebron to win. no denying he’s a good player, but i don’t like his cockyness. it’s been a close series and an interesting one nonetheless. at least they didn’t disappoint today and hopefully they close it off on tuesday so i can witness it
