day 1895 – tiramisu mousse

the guilt of eating the mom’s tiramisu birthday cake is strong, but what’s in my stomach is already inside and can’t be changed. this cake eating was necessary to celebrate the most important woman in my world. the cake was so delicious i even had an extra half a slice. i’ll make this an exception and stay clean for the next stretch. just have to work harder to burn it all off

day 1874 – poke master

improvised poke bowl for family dinner limited to the ingredients readily available in the fridge. the main ingredients were salmon sashimi, beets corn, cilantro and some wasabi for the zing. it was really light, refreshing yet flavourful. i think my newfound favourite vegetable to be beets. i’ll try making more funky poke bowls next time and experiment with different ingredients

day 894 – munching at gym

image

surely munching away on a chocolate chip cupcake is totally normal at the gym. it wasn’t the typical kind of cupcake off the shelf but a delicious yet nutritious version made with veggies that was devoured in a heartbeat. i am so glad there weren’t seconds available or that might cause some trouble. i’ll just convince myself maybe i worked hard enough and exerted much energy during the workout, and if not, there’s always dodgeball that follows

day 778 – informal farewell lunch

getting together with a couple others for an impromptu farewell lunch because he is leaving our downtown neighbourhood for better opportunities filled with exciting adventures. but i will probably still see him elsewhere, just not in downtown business attire. my order of sashimi tuna salad tasted as good as it looked; rarely am i so satisfied after eating a salad and one that i would order again in the future

day 726 – feeling hungry

image

sashimi and japanese food are always good go to food and i don’t think i can ever get tired of eating them. today i have the luxury of getting my sushi cravings fixed but i know i cannot afford to spoil myself too often for obvious reasons. of course i ordered my favourite salmon and tuna sashimi, and then my current new favourite, the maple roll. at least i stay away from the fried stuff

day 651 – ramen fix

image

my first time at gyoza bar and had been meaning to try this place since its existence but never found a good excuse to do so. i couldn’t turn down an invite to dine with my mom so here i was sharing orders of chicken ramen, tofu salad and shrimp gyozas. the food lived up to its name gyoza bar because the shrimp gyozas was simply delicious. actually, everything on the table tasted pretty good, my mom even commented the waiter was pretty good looking too

day 609 – april fool’s

so march is over in a flash and i can’t believe it’s the start of another month. grabbing lunch at joeys on the first day of april, celebrating big boss’ birthday on april fool’s. first time eating at the bentall one location and never knew this place was so huge. my order of ahi tuna taco with lettuce cups was very delicious. the portion was so small i was actually able to finish my meal for once
