day 2177 – hd summer bbq

the day of our annual summer barbecue party has come and there’s a lot of preparation as usual. it’s always good to only work half day and party in the other half. this year is hawaiian themed so we had guest come to present an ‘aloha experience’. we had the usual human foosball, photo booth and of course tug of war. new to this year is the limbo contest which i participated but didn’t win. so surprised i won dr dre beats from the raffle draw, which never happens with my luck

day 2153 – nintendo switch

a cozy night staying in playing nintendo switch and eating sushi. just a small get together to celebrate an ex-coworker’s birthday. also a good time to catch up and digress a little on the things that’s been happening around. after i got a few things off my chest, we changed the mood with some games. i rarely get to play video games, but it’s no surprise i got creamed in every game we played. we had good laughs all around and that’s all it matters

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 2037 – pink shirt day

wearing pink pants to the office to support anti-bullying day. this is one of the few times i will voluntarily wear something so bright because it’s a movement closer to my heart. i’ve been bullied in parts of my childhood because i was small and timid. as a result, i would not look like i can defend or stand up for myself. i guess that explains why i keep things inside my heart and my mind, and that’s developed a shell designed to protect my myself from danger

day 2030 – coffee run

doing an afternoon zero waste starbucks coffee run with the girls. i need the caffeine to keep my awake, but it’s also making my headache worse. still went to flipping afterwards and both my kicks and flips were on point. another disappointment and another day missed on landing my roundoff back tuck. given that my roundoff was better than ever before, i thought i’d land it today and my coaches did too. the hopes of doing so slowly slipped way from me and i started to get discouraged. disappointed i came short again and will have to wait for next time

day 2018 – lunar lunch

organized a late lunar new year lunch for the asians in the office. what was suppose to be a foursome expanded to a group of eleven. the three of us girls shared a salad, sashimi and two rolls. it’s good to have variety otherwise i’d only be limited to eating sashimi and a roll. didn’t feel like going back to work after eating. it. i hope the snow doesn’t stick so i can drive to delta for my game later in the evening

day 1987 – hotpotting

had a bunch of friends crash my house for hotpot because they heard i have the whole house all to myself this week. i don’t normally get a chance to host any parties simply cause i don’t have my own place. it’s my first hotpot of the cold wintery days. i’m so full from stuffing down all the food including beef, pork, assorted meat balls, fish tofu, mushrooms, daikon, and veggies. there’s a lot of cleaning up to do after stuffing our faces but fortunately there was a dishwasher within the group
