day 2101 – celebrating my existence

the celebration of my birth with my family comes a day before because my parents are flying out for vacation. i couldn’t decide on a japanese restaurant, so settled with dai jung kum instead. we enjoyed a good dinner together completed with a combo with no shortage of food on the table – barbecue meat, seafood pancake, dumplings, soup and side dishes. i enjoyed the dinner very much, not because of the delicious food, but the opportunity to sit down and share it with my family. my birthday would never be complete unless i can spend some quality time with my loved ones that would never leave me behind

day 1801 – carnival time

work was pretty much a write off since many of us chipped in to help setup the annual summer party. this year’s theme is carnival and thankfully there were no clowns present. the games can get intense with a bunch of adults reliving their long lost childhood in a games of human foosball, bungee run and of course tug-of-war. i’m pretty dangerous at human foosball; there were several instances of close calls where i almost kicked someone in the head. fun bbq in scorching hot weather just like last year, i’m sure i went home a shade darker

day 1121 – team bbq

my softball team celebration bbq with endless supply of food and plenty of alcohol. i stayed away from that and designated myself as the cook in charge of making food; i don’t think i’ve ever stood in front of a grill for such a long time. it got a little crazy after some downed a few rounds of shots, while i did play a little beer pong before i called it a night. i went home really tired smelling like oil, grease and smoke, but it was a good teambonder

day 100 – korean bbq

after having a single bowl of congee in 34 hours because of an upset stomach, here’s the all you can eat late night korean bbq to make up for the lack of appetite and food. the abundance of food felt like i suddenly went from third world country to first world country. i am sure its not the brightest idea in the world, but i will just go with the flow and see how much my body wants to absorb. so much meat…i haven’t had all you can eat for so long
