day 1616 – double yolk


mom cooked lots of food for dinner and bought mooncake for dessert to celebrate mid autumn festival with the family. it gets harder and harder to have a family dinner because my schedule is just so packed. i’m glad they understand that i am working hard and grinding every single day. they know i’m hardworking to establish a better future but they’re always concerned i don’t eat. i’ll just make the most of the special dinners we get together. i guess i can allow myself to have this once in a while. i hate being called fat, but maybe i’ll just have to accept it’s the truth and that i’m getting fat

day 1564 – serious dessert

line ups for premium ice cream shops are always this long, but if we always turn around like we did last time, i’ll never get to try any of them. my whiskey hazelnut and london fog double scoop cone was worth my wait. it was not a bad sunday, but i would see the norm every so often and wonder why it’s not like that for me. that thorn will be inevitable, for as long as it’s not addressed it will be a reminder of what hurts

day 1534 – tug of war

the planning committee put together an amazing summer bbq party that includes photo booth, contests, games, prizes and food trucks. of the many events and activities that we had, tug of war was the main event because a trophy was on the line. today was a good day despite a slip up in my eating. my manager couldn’t have picked a better day to inform me of my increased salary. it was so good to hear that he has fought for my compensation in return for my hardwork; he wasn’t kidding when he told me to stick by him, he’ll take me higher and make it worthwhile for me

day 1529 – japanese boat

it takes a lot to make me skip my sunday workout but skipping it is probably the best i can do for my aching skeleton. i almost lost it with one of the parents at promotion test this afternoon. majority of the parents i deal with are reasonable, but there will always be those odd ones that cause a lot of ruckus. she talked nonstop and refused to listen to any explanation; luckily simo stepped in before my patience ran out. i needed this boat to replenish all that i had lost talking to her

day 1485 – earnest

carrying over the effects of yesterday, i couldn’t concentrate seeing so many live streams and posts of the event. even the earnest manager brought in didn’t help much. i didn’t want to be anywhere; if there was a hole i would bury myself. luckily i could go out for a drink on a warm summer-like night. that gave my mind a break so i don’t have to bum around and want to run myself through the walls

day 1463 – sumptuous birthday


spending my birthday in vegas wasn’t my preference because everything i have and need is at home. although i’d rather be spending it in vancity, i can’t deny it was a good experience with scatters of good time. sitting next to my big boss for my birthday dinner is definitely a one of a kind experience. he had a lot of interesting insights and life advice after having a few drinks. time is flying by so quickly; celebrating getting another year older with sushi delicacy, drinks and a surprise dessert

day 1306 – exec socialĀ 

a vdl event that gathers execs so those who don’t do league ops nor play every night gets a chance to hangout. i am usually unable to make it out to these events, but i had a gap before working at blackbelt test. taking over most of steamworks eating and socializing while getting good laughs playing board games. the company was good but the food was horrible; i ended up eating my first hotdog since korean festival two summers ago. a laid back afternoon that momentarily got my mind off taekwondo where i was low key stressing out for my competition
