day 2322 – department lunch

the first christmas meal of the season is a combined department lunch with human resources, finance and admin. it was a group of twelve dining at a hotel restaurant called 75 west. nothing on the menu really appealed to me. the ribs i ordered were alright. i had half the rack plus the caesar salad and shared the other half, fries and slaw

day 2301 – surrendered bubble tea

because i was still feeling the ill-effects of the bronchitis, cough and cold, i surrendered my free bubble tea to someone who would be able to enjoy it more. over a week of intense coughing day and night. i’ve gone through bottles of cough syrup, packets of lozenges and endless tylenol cold pills, yet i still can’t get some quality sleep during the night. all i want is to rid this nagging cough, sore throat and runny nose

day 2203 – shaved ice

being done with the never ending bottle of antibiotics is something to celebrate for. so i celebrated no more dealing with side effects by training a little more than the past days. although my neck and back from the whiplash is still noticeable, i still insisted on building my back tucks back onto the floor without a spot. after training, the crew had the urge to get shaved ice so i got a chance to try snowy village for the first time. this is bad for my eating plan, but at least i shared it with two others

day 2178 – flightclub birthday

a night at the facilities to celebrate flightclub coachs birthday. in the short span i’ve spent tricking, i’ve met a lot of new people within the community. i arrived late to the party due to another long teaching shift. we spent the night playing board games, karaoke, eating, chatting and of course flipping. there was no shortage of food and cake from the potluck. i stayed past midnight but not until the very end since i need to be up early for walk with the dragon the next morning

day 2100 – dual birthdays

we haven’t gone out for lunch in a while but may birthdays gives us an excuse to do so. we went to steveston ora sushi for some bentos. we don’t see each other as much ever since we split buildings. the lunch hangout was brief, but it still hit the spot. and so the birthday meals begins and goes through until sunday. as expected, i may be sick of food by the end of this weekend

day 2095 – xingfu tea

i didn’t do what i wanted to do this morning – have my xrays taken. it would have been a killer to wake up at 8am after a late night for walk in clinic. one thing i did do was stop at the newest bubble tea shop after our civil war game. i ordered their speciality brown sugar pearl with milk tea. it tasted good, but nothing crazy enough for me to line up for. in fact, i probably would prefer something else because it was too sweet for my normal liking. drinks aside, i just like to hang out with this bunch after games

day 2073 – pearl fever

i happily holding onto my bubble reward for the twenty back tucks i was challenged to do. the perfect reward to end a frustrating and stressful week that made me want to walk out. i didn’t have any appetite even though i was hungry. i’m glad i didn’t go straight home and instead hung out with my friends to wind up the friday night. this would be my first milk tea from the highly touted pearl fever and it didn’t disappoint. the thirty percent sweet was perfect and just how i like it even though my friend who bought it didn’t think so
