day 700 – larger than life

image

i have never ever seen or even heard of an order of bubble tea served in a pitcher containing all the toppings available. i wouldn’t dare order that because the amount of sugar in that pitcher alone is enough to cause diabetes and cause my organs and system some trouble. just looking at that already makes me really full and bloated. the deal was if my friend can finish that in one sitting without puking, the pitcher is on me. happy 700th day post, this blog has certainly come a long way

day 576 – baby shower

image

everyone chipped in for a big baby shower present and an early farewell party. so much food to be had during the potluck party i consumed too much and feel way too bloated to stay awake. i am sure i am not the only one that feels sluggish and unproductive for the rest of afternoon. the decoration balls are impressively made from raw tissue paper through following some tutorials. the power of youtube videos are amazing

day 438 – potluck

image

a thanksgiving potluck with a large selection of  of delicious food was called for. so many choices of desserts available, i don’t even know where to begin. i only managed to try half the dishes and was already enough to keep my stomach satiated until 10pm. too much eating over this weekend isn’t a good thing at all. too much food to tempt me but can’t eat it if it doesn’t fit my macro

day 404 – moon cake day

image

what’s moon cake day without actually devouring some moon cakes?? i was feeling quite ill all day but as asians, we all know we can’t go through mid autumn festival without having eaten at least several pieces of this unhealthy lotus with egg yolk pastry. those things taste so good and yet so bad for health. there was also a big egg yolk in the sky tonight, as big and round as i have ever witness. happy mid autumn festival!!

day 314 – sunset

image

what started off as a rainy and wet morning turned into a fairly sunny evening. a fitting stroll along kitsilano beach was called for after being bloated with lots of malaysian food. i wasn’t able to walk for long, but a short calming walk along beach with summer winds blowing against our faces and witnessing the sunset was still a bonus. vancouver does treat us well with the abundance of surrounding water

day 194 – long weekend special

DSC_0048

pigging out at aberdeen food court in between our own training session and teaching session. tried the oreo ice cream smoothie for the first time and it tasted really good but it was so filling i didn’t even need the wonton noodles. bad news is after stuffing my face, it is time to teach poomsae training

day 185 – for good luck

image

fish shaped mango pudding dessert for good luck, that’s the what we call the opening year meal on the day after chinese new year. there’s been a string of many important meals lately, all so rich and delicious but i feel too bloated and hope this will all be over soon and go back to normalities
