day 2508 – picnic dinner

last minute changes to co-worker’s birthday because dine in wasn’t really available. fortunately, the weather changed for the better so we could order takeout and have a picnic dinner. seeing my coworkers after months of separation is pretty heart warming. we had an enjoyable time catching up with lots of laughs. was planning to just chill, but ended up tossing a frisbee around, hid from big dogs and did a flip. i miss seeing their faces at the office and chatting on teams to get through the work day together

day 2472 – minion celly

my little hospitality design minion invited me over to her place for my belated birthday celebration. we had our long overdue catch up chat while enjoying our steak salad and roasted veggies. after our delicious dinner, we went out for an evening stroll while the sun set behind us. the perks of living in olympic village is the seawall is literally her backyard. i’m very thankful i was out today to take my mind off things that’s causing my stress level to rise

day 2446 – cauliflower quiche

the start of week three quarantine and it’s starting to feel like the new norm. as much as i wanted to be outside enjoying the sunshine, i stayed home most of the day. i’ve also become quite addicted to star chef, a game where i manage my cooking staff. for dinner, my brother in law decided to try a new quiche recipe. it was very tasty but i’m still not thrilled it sacrificed my whole cauliflower. maybe next time i need to buy two

day 2436 – ice cream cake

crazy quarantine time isn’t the most ideal way to spend any birthday, but with no place to dine in, my brother will have to settle for a sushi takeout dinner. we also changed it up and brought an ice cream cake from dairy queen. it was quite the nostalgic taste because we haven’t had it since our teenage years. i really hope this covid situation has significant improvements soon so we won’t be trapped in our homes desperately looking for things to entertain ourselves with

day 2353 – cactus dinner

my dad chose to have his early birthday dinner celebrated at cactus club at byrne road. i haven’t had white food for quite some time so i didn’t mind it. instead of each person ordering an individual dish, we shared because we wanted less quantity and more variety. we had a good mix of food that included chicken kale salad, yam fries, steak and frites, quesadilla, tuna poke bowl. dinners like these are important to us just to share quality family time when it matters most

day 2343 – marshmallow

when i said big things was coming this year, i didn’t mean marshmallow. starting off the sunny new year day being strong and chipping away at clean and jerk technique. i also got my car’s headlight replaced, cleaned out the rest of my wardrobe, organized some things and watched some prince of tennis. the dinner table was stacked with eight delicious dishes. ended the day relaxing with a facial mask. i would say that’s decent start to the year

day 2262 – family thanksgiving

we dont normally have a big celebration for thanksgiving, we save the turkey and the luxurios for christmas time. celebrating both mom’s belated birthday and thanksgiving in one dinner. my family doesn’t consume much, but as usual, we order way too much our stomachs require. all of us are super busy with our commitments, but we’re all just smiling because we can make time to spend these special days together

day 2249 – testers and testees

i never kept track of the number of promotion tests i’ve led, but if i had to make a guess, it would over fifty. done another colour belt tes today before heading out to flightclub. i almost didn’t make it out to open gym because i joined them for an spontaneous dinner. i still ended up going, and worked on some back handsprings drills which i found quite insightful. i stayed until the end of the open gym, i’m going to be super tired tomorrow morning

day 2161 – smoked salmon pinwheel

the best thing about coming home late is still having homemade food by my mom. these smoked salmon tortilla wrapped pinwheels taste is unmatched because it’s made with so much care. no matter what time of the day, my mom will gladly prepare food for me and make sure i don’t starve. i played up a big appetite after returning home from my sports activities and ate all of that

day 2156 – shower squad

homemade wings, pizza and charcuteries board to go with tnt bought matcha popiscles for the shower squad. we had lots of catching up to do after not having hung out for over four weeks. we ate and talked, ate some more and talked some more before playing several rounds of taboo. the night didn’t end until 1:30am because we had so much to do talk about. this was a good night and wish it would happen more often
