day 1975 – paypower

using the mastercard paypower i got from star performer spin the wheel to help out my extensive hobby of online shopping. even though i didn’t physically join the boxing day mall crowds, i bought a few things and spent quite a bit of money. some were impulsive buys but i needed more tech savvy things. i must contain myself after the holiday season is over and until i can recover for the damage of all these sales

day 1974 – aquaman

watching movies in theatres nowadays is so pricey. i don’t catch many movies in theatre on their first week of showing, but aquaman was too good to pass up. i liked that the background story was well presented. i’d rank this one up there with the rest of the marvel movies. bumble bee, spiderman and grinch are next on my list to watch or stream. note to self that boxing day shopping isn’t only a morning, it’s a full day of craziness especially metrotown

day 1244 – door crashing

image

door crashing with my dad for my portable hard drive and his television sound system. it doesn’t look like much from the outside, but the line up to the cashier was an hour long. i didn’t want to see the gong show at metropolis today so i went home and took an hour nap before continuing with my day. i did more black friday shopping than boxing day shopping; that’s a good thing because i really need to control my spendings and work harder at saving

day 878 – vandusen fun

a day removed from christmas but the festivities doesn’t stop. did most of my boxing day shopping online so needn’t fight with the crowds and potentially angry mobs. it was so nice to get out and finally check out vandusen garden festival of lights. the weather cooperated with us for the most part, can’t complain about the little drizzle and wet flurries.  i thought i was dressed well and prepared for the cold, but somehow my limbs still felt frozen. still had a great time, the freezing was worth it

day 523 – dslr

my dslr camera from boxing day shopping came in a week ago, yet i have not had little time for myself let alone time to play around with my new toy and put it to good use. can’t wait until i can relax to have some leisure time and personal time to do the many other things that also lies within my interest. so much to do so little time, i worry with each ticking second

day 513 – game on

happy to be back at the gym after a long stretch of being lazy with no gym time and too much stuffing my face. a relatively quiet night at the gym since everyone is probably too busy shopping on boxing day or all tired out from doorcrashing. getting my butt to the gym was a struggle but felt good walking out that door. i will be back often and make it a habit in order to make things happen

day 148 – stanley park

unlike the typical boxing day, much of my activity did not take place early in the morning door crashing and fighting with thousands of others at malls but rather at night in a calm outdoor at stanley park. enjoyed a lovely night out eating japanese delicacy, visiting bright nights and wandering around downtown
