day 1814 – potato wedges

a great win for the team as we strung together six solid innings to win by seven. timely defensive plays like my first time throwing a runner out at home plate. spontaneity got the better part of me today as i was driving home after my game. it wasn’t great but wasn’t bad either and i wished i saved my quota for good poutinery found in downtown. i didn’t finish the whole thing but at least i can say i’ve tasted the timmy’s poutine

day 1769 – may birthday cake

big save on cake at showtime for all the may babies in the office. last year may babies got ripped off on our faceless cake. this year, we sure got an extra large cake with our caricatures on it. it seems absurd to be recelebrating a birthday that happened a month after the actual date. after stuffing my face, literally, i went for my second tricky class and got more practice flips in. i hope to attend as often as i can cause i want it back soon

day 1756 – japanese kitkat

coworker came back from japan trip with goodies to share. of the many flavors she brought back, i chose the matcha and sake. of the many kitkat flavors i’ve ever tried, matcha is still my favourite. a headache made me feel crappy this morning, i didn’t think i’d stay at the office the whole day. popping a few advils seemed to have helped me head and got me through the rest of it. calling it an earlier day and hopeful it gets better by tomorrow

day 1745 – mom appreciationĀ 

the fact my family is going on vacation starting tomorrow means an early mothers day celebration. i don’t show enough, but i truly appreciate my supermom that never fails to take care of me. we rarely go out for vietnamese food cause my parents don’t like the seating, but had to try this place since it’s a highly touted authentic vietnamese restaurant. the lineup outside is always so long, somehow we got a table within fifteen minutes of waiting. this prices wasn’t cheap for sure, but the food was really good, especially the lemon grass chicken. when i said may is a busy month, i do mean it 

day 1708 – bakery cakery


rushing out of the office like a mad woman trying to buy a cake on the day of my brother’s birthday. what i was going for was a mousse cake but none left so i stuck with chinese fruit cake. most of my family members doesn’t eat whip cream, but we’ll make do this time and make sure we order in advance the next time around. we may not talk much with both of us being workaholics and having such busy schedules, but i’ll still go the distance for him when necessary 

day 1703 – cafe savoureux

dessert hopping stop number three to start the long weekend. we ordered different drinks and shared the fancy cakes. we like to get together for an afternoon tea with drinks and sweets. sitting together at the table talking out the stresses of work and relieving our minds before a three day weekend. for the first time in three months, it’s one weekend i do not have to work. though i don’t have to go into work, i still have to make time to work at my own time. it’s month end so there’s extra work to do to wrap up the march and prepare for april

day 1684 – milky taro


the craving was there long ago, but this is actually my first taro bubble tea of the year and it was all in for the milky oreo taro slush. shared a kimchi fried rice but left the restaurant so full so worth it. it was also a fun social gathering of the civil war draft. as much as i wished for the sharks colour, i’m happy being in the golden ducks. both my ranking, scouting report was decent and being picked at where i was was good too. it’ll be a good season probably getting ice time playing multiple positions
