day 1923 – summer roll

haven’t had vietnamese food in a long time, but here i am with the flight club gang just to chill. i was pretty hungry after staying late to get more practice in. instead of some pho, i ordered one shrimp salad roll just to satisfy my hunger. i don’t think i’m really missing out if i don’t have vietnamese food, but i guess once in a while wouldn’t be too detrimental. it’s a good thing there’s ten percent off mondays

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 1796 – oh canada 


a different canada day unlike any previous years where i had to host a taekwondo competition. this is the most laid back canada day i can remember, spent it helping my parents with some cleaning up and recycling old junk. the nagging headaches is really not going away, and making me feel uninterested even in my most favourite things. the long weekend continues with a nice dinner out at kishimoto before checking out a free concert. even though it was rainy and slightly cold, the swanguard stadium festivities and fireworks turned out well

day 1777 – winner winner

who would go to penta when i could be hanging out with these girls. presenting season 24 and 25 gstrings, back to back to back season winners of hootie the spirit owl. we ordered nothing by appetizers including nachos wings, yam fries, salad and brussel sprouts. a bill that was suppose to be over one hundred and twenty came out to eight all thanks to being sprit winners. pigging out on finger food after bootcamp sounds like an acceptable combo. even though gstrings won’t be in next season for various reasons, the return for season 27 is already in the talks

day 1706 – joey’s night

first workout of april in the books; despite not feeling great, i got it started again. at night, the tong family went out to joey’s for an early celebration of my brother’s birthday. it was a tough toss up between the farmers market chicken salad and steak frites. in the end i ordered the steak frites which had the smaller version of prime sirloin, greens and joey’ssignature signature skinny fries. it was a pricey meal, but sharing a birthday is always a special occasion. i spent a lot of time with my family this weekend and that’s what long weekend is all about – rest and family time

day 1690 – squirtle bonder

bonder for squirtle squad at the fancy chop steakhouse. i went all out because i knew they were well known for steak and the prime rib i ordered was absolutely delicious. it’s one of the odd times i order medium rare and i actually get it done with a good amount of red in my meat. left with a pretty hefty bill but treating myself once in a while is not so bad. the squirtle jerseys are in and done; we’re ready for the spring season. it sounds like we have a good team and i’m really looking forward to it

day 1662 – chinese new year celly

the year of the dog starts off with more food celebrations; chinese new year celebration at the office, then with family. stayed up late to make long distance calls to my grandparents and relatives in hong kong. it’s good that i hit the gym between the two chinese meals. i guess i’ll run and workout a little harder to work the food overload. and at the end of the day, i have a few red pockets to take home with me
