day 1571 – home and away 

another one of my design creation turned into something rad for the entire team to work. took my manager’s advice to opt out of the reversible and get two separate jerseys. i can’t wait to be back on the ice to debut this jersey, but first i must wait to be cleared by my surgeon and physio. six weeks in a splint was what i was told by my first doctor. one doctor, one hand specialist, two surgeons, one physio, and one hand therapist later, i’m still unsure what my status is

day 1172 – referee debut

image

going to master cup with with the identity of a referee instead of a competitor or coach. first time officiating provincial sparring matches and official blackbelt poomsae divisions; definitely an eye opener. crazy long day with ten straight hours of taekwondo today. i definitely enjoyed judging the official blackbelt as opposed to being centre referee for sparring. i needed tying tie tutorials first thing in the morning as i haven’t worn a tie since hong kong elementary school days

day 783 – rdl debut

image

dodgeball season is officially in as tonight marks my rdl debut both as a player and an exec. playing on a new team with a new organization in a new gym location, but not all that new because it’s the same old game of dodgeball which i have been so accustomed to. no these are not dodgeballs, they are mini dodgeballs also known as stressballs. although there’s no difference between it because i throw balls at people to relieve my stress anyways

day 602 – subliminated debut

it was a slow start to dodgeball after a two week layoff, but got better as the night went on. as competitive minded as we are, dodgeball isn’t all about wins and loses. we were having some fun, getting up close and personal with the camera on our new jersey debut. we are finally able to take our team photo with the whole team present and debuting our spiffy new jerseys which i am truly proud of. feeling good with the jerseys and well on our way to winning best dressed

day 572 – monday debut

image

finally making my monday team season debut even though i am outright sore. my neck and back area as stiff as a board, a resultant of all that breakfalling from yesterday’s test. this condition made especially difficult to drive when i cannot shoulder check and it seizes up every time i step on the gas or brake pedal. in desperate need of a massage and hot tub stint since i cannot apply bengay

day 425 – throbocop season opener

image

throbocop debut and unveiling of our new jerseys. got my jersey last week but held off from displaying to keep it a surprise for the rest of the gang. first time playing together with this bunch and it was a chaotic one. trying to shake off the rust and help my new teammates learn to play the game. my focus on this team and wednesday team is very different, monday is all about working on my catching game. there’s a lot of work to be done

day 172 – breaking them in

image

debut my new jcalicu uniform because all my other uniforms were in the wash. this is my new precious one and i will use this carefully and sparingly over next few months to keep it in mint condition for big events and special occasions. lots of practice and training needed to go in order to live up to expectations because wearing this on my back should be a privilege
