day 1557 – dockside view 

a sunday going across the bridge to north vancouver, west vancouver, then granville island. hit up the lonsdale quay market and park royal before some fancy seafood. this isn’t our usual calibre for dinner, but came here for the patio dinner and that view. treasure the extended time together; it only happens on special weekends. it was an enjoyable good day but i’m disappointed i couldn’t keep the better part of me to myself

day 1547 – sushiuomo

i quite like the new place we found and the temakis that was served. it was a feel good kind of day because i felt encouraged at work when my manager told me he praised me during the management meeting for how well i’ve been developing the new collection and the rhythm the technical team is in. makes me understand that my hard work isn’t transparent and good managers will always be there to let you know that

day 1487 – sriracha spaghetti

made our own recipe of sriracha tomato sauced spaghetti for dinner. i’ll be picking up my parents from the airport tonight so this is the last homecooking while we have the entire place to ourselves. i enjoyed the freedom and peace, but one my priority it to embrace their presence and build better rapport like the good old days. today also marks the six year anniversary of my first foot fracture. i can’t say i’ll ever be able to treat it like normal again; paranoia usually takes over

day 1473 – mapo tofu


my family is away in asia so we had our’s early. this is the perfect time to have some lomo time. i’m stuffed from our home cooked meal as tried our hand at making mapo tofu and siu mai. it turned out very tasty.  the only adjustments i would make for next time is taking out the black bean paste and the proportion of tofu to meat. we’ll be using each other as test subjects while i have the entire house to myself. the weekend passed by too quickly but it was a pleasant one

day 1327 – belated celly

our significant day was delayed but not forgotten; finally getting around to celebrating with some finer dining. it’s a stepping stone for both of us and a much deserved night out. we’ve shared a lot and made the most of everything. of course we’ve had our ups and downs and sometimes i can’t help but feel distant, but i’ll still try to take the good with the bad. in every relationship there’ll be a mix of surprises and disappointments, i chose so to dissipate it and not let it affect me too long and turn the page from the recent built up frustration 

day 1280 – malay meal

happy to have our busy schedules meet so we can spend some evening time together. we work hard during the day and hangout and relax in the evening. molested the lime wedge before i dug into my shrimp tomato pad thai. i may look like a pig with the two big dishes in front of me, but rest assure i didn’t have all that. i did however keep it to a bare minimal to save my quota for tonight’s malaysian meal 

day 1253 – hearty meal

all my favourite dishes were on the dinner table because i’m finally home for dinner on last day before parents leave for mexico. it’s her way of saying it’s good to have me home for dinner for once. it was a great homecooked meal; i enjoyed every dish and stuffed myself too much. i have yet to get back on track with eating the way i would like to and that needs to be done starting tomorrow. now that she’s going on vacation, i might as well not cook to solve that problem
