day 2313 – cafe artisans

long talks and coffee kind of day on a cold sunday december afternoon. i can’t believe it’s already the start of december. i just couldn’t wait to turn the page past a horrendous november and move forward to a better december and an even brighter 2020 year ahead. by the time holiday rolls around, i hope to put the finger woes behind me and figure out much of the uncertainties surrounding my ankle

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 2298 – room bound

sadly, i slept in and missed the raptors limited edition shoe launch. spent majority of the time at home and mostly in my room because i don’t want to get anyone in my family sick. it’s been a really weird and rough stretch for me the past few weeks. i’ve dealt with a foot injury where after six assessments by different physicians, the final diagnosis is still u determine to date. yet, i still am restricted to basically not do anything i usually do. i’m now trapped with this sickness tagged as bronchitis, but i also have a cold and both combined keeps me up coughing all night long, and gives me a headache when i’m not in bed

day 2254 – chunyang

friday finally came and i couldn’t be more happier the work week is over and i have the following monday off. trying out a new bubble tea spot on alderbridge because they have buy one get one fifty off. i had their brown sugar pearls milk tea and their pearls are really soft and chewy. it’s a pity they don’t have much seating for guests. we were basically standing by the bay doors freezing my butt off because i was wearing shorts

day 2033 – lumber

cut some lumber with my dad to get ready for my next do it yourself project. my dad has the basic tools but not a woodworking workshop at home. it made cutting wood slightly more tedious and difficult, but still got the job done nonetheless. i still need to gather more material and go through this same process again. i’m hope this will all turn out as well as i drew it up on sketchup and cad

day 2029 – sick day

instead of going into work, i stayed at home all day because i woke up with a headache, sore throat and the feeling that i’m fending off an oncoming cold. after calling in sick at 7am, i managed to sleep until past 1pm. sleeping fourteen hours is a really, really rare occasion since i usually get six or less. i logged a total of less than two thousand steps so my fitbit probably thought i was dying

day 2028 – snatch techniques

it’s a jam packed statutory holiday that started with olympic lifting session, followed by work, then tutor and finished off coaching poomsae training. snatching with lower weights to focus on technique. i must say my snatches felt real good today, as did my shoulder. as for front squats, upped the weight for the fourth consecutive week and it felt super heavy. still felt good to have moved up and closer to bodyweight. lifting session was fun, however, when i was at work and tutor i started to feel something was coming on. towards the end of the day, i feel as if i had caught a cold
