day 1156 – starbucks calling

image

getting more work done with starbucks in my hand. productivity keeps rising – completed more graphics work, finished some logs, placed my order, downloaded my material, did my research and continued with my templates. kept myself as busy as i could; i’m two episodes behind in my drama. when the gym is calling but still off limits is a lonely feeling i’ll never get used to and never want to get used to

day 677 – last of it

image

hamberite catching up time with more shaved ice at icepik which was fitting for a scorching hot sunday afternoon. call me old school, i stuck with green tea flavour just like last time despite hundreds of other possible combination. i promised myself this is the last of the dessert pigging out for a while because there’s been too much of it lately and not doing me any good

day 595 – love from san fran

image

received my souvenir of matcha mochi and my signature shot glass from san francisco. i knew he would get me edibles just to make me feel bad for snacking instead of burning calories. he did try to ease the guilt by saying if it doesn’t have a nutritional label, assume the food is zero calories. i like how he thinks, but i don’t think my body reacts the same way. if i go by that rule, i guess i won’t feel too bad eating all of it

day 593 – freebie

image

it’s true dairy queen is giving out free kid size ice cream cones today and that alone is a good enough of an excuse to indulge in some ice cream. i almost forgot how good dairy queen ice cream tastes like and knew that lining up for it was well worth the wait, plus i don’t know many asian who doesn’t like free stuf, if any. guess where i will be headed tonight to make up for the extra calorie intake

reality in the making

image

ever had those dreams where when you wake up you don’t recall much of what happened or only recall fragmented pieces that doesn’t link up?? those temporary dreams that don’t make a lasting impression are not of my concern. when a dream worth achieving, it is a dream worth working for. a timely post to remind myself about discipline and self control because i have been doing poorly in that regard as of late. i guess that’s what separates dreams from reality and the mediocres and the good. thanks for always nudging me back on track when i start straying, reminding me the importance of the game plan and forever pushing me to do better. although sometimes it’s pretty brutal the way you put it, and you make me feel a little more useless than i need to. it is that guilt trip that lets me know i am not doing it right, that i can always do better. it takes a lot of commitment to make a dream into reality but once i put my mind to it, its reality in the making

day 538 – the last meal

image

second dineout vancouver stop at carderos with some fellow hamberites. nice walk along the seawall although it was a cold one, maybe that’s why my throat is hurting. being guilt tripped after dining out past month, i told myself each time that it was the last; but after yesterday, i swear it would be the last exquisite dining out for a while and even limiting any kind of eating out as much as i can. that’s enough pampering myself with good yet expensive food

day 495 – chocolate block

image

the inevitable christmas chocolates are starting to flood in like crazy. at first i was puzzled when i opened the box and the first thing i saw was the metal hammer. it all makes sense after i flipped open the wrapper to find a thirteen inch by eight inch solid block of milk chocolate. i guess it all makes sense when the gift was coming from engineers. that’s a lot of chocolate to be had, how can i keep my hands off this??
