day 2471 – alley freebie

another week of training done so i’ve made it to my weekly reward day. i hit up downtown alley for my birthday free drink. instead of my top favourite iron goddess, i went for a more exotic drink, the mango coconut lulu, and it didn’t disappoint. the tropical flavour was super refreshing on a hot day especially after a workout.  sometimes i worry i’ve fallen in love with this quarantine routine and pace; i’m not sure if i’m ready to go back to normal when it comes time

day 2293 – nucks verse preds

the canucks have been doing surprisingly well out of the gate this season. i’ve been keeping up with the canucks games on television as much as i can. my linden jersey was ready to catch it live at rogers arena for this first time this season. the young players and new prospects have been doing really well. so glad to witness pettersen score two goals on his birthday. i’m still debating if i should buy a 50th anniversary jersey with pettersen stitched

day 2246 – cta 2019

call to action conference day two was much the same – more learning and more networking. the hype of the swag chase died down. conferences like this presents great learning opportunity, just tough on my body because i’m not used to sitting and staying still for long periods of time. i walked out with a couple friends to have a sushi lunch close to tinseltown. unbounce fed us plenty through the two days. i didn’t attend the after party, but i heard there’s a lot of food and drinks offered

day 2245 – unbounce conference

i can count with one hand the amount of times i transited in the last year, and today was one of them. day one of the unbounce call to action held in downtown. i started off the first two sessions sitting with the rest of the marketing team, but i wandered off after that. i felt more comfortable being on my own and had a chance to meet new people. afterall, marketing conferences are meant for networking and meeting others alike. i was also glad to see a few familiar faces from my sports circle. aside from learning, the goal of today was to collect all the swag i wanted and i did so in the first half of the day

day 2142 – party in downtown

i was tired coming back from lengthy vacation and everything that happened at work. although i showed up fashionably late, it’s still important that i make an appearance at a birthday party. saw everyone from squirtle whom i haven’t seen for almost a month, had a drink and left charles bar extremely tired. i didn’t get home until 3am, i can’t imagine waking up for my appointment tomorrow morning

day 2078 – kwantlen grad

ever since my schooling days are over, taking transit has become a weird phenomenon. i did it today because i took a field trip to ubc robson square for a kwantlen graduate screening. it was probably unnecessary, but we stopped at michaels and timmys to buy a donut as a gift. glad to make it out to see the youngin finally make it through her degree and regain some freedom

day 1931 – hop on hop off

signed up for the big big bus where we have the flexibility to hop on and off the bus whenever we come across any attractions we wanted to see. we hopped on three different routes to go around downtown, chinatown, little india and orchard road. from this bus tour, i saw so many superb architecture and design. these busses saved us a lot of walking and definitely saved my knee from collapsing

day 1924 – 98 degrees

been looking forward to attending the concert of my favourite boy band back in the 2000’s. the inside of vogue theatre had an old smell and uncomfortable seats. i saw a dozen familiar faces and funny enough the person who sat on my other side was also someone i knew from dodgeball. good thing we didn’t have to stand the entire time. i had a good time jamming away, but i just wished that they sang more from their own album and less of christmas songs

day 1889 – beyonce concert

can’t say no when work offered free tickets to beyonce and jayz concert. i was getting impatient when the show was delayed an hour before some chloe x halle came on for a couple intro songs. it was also freezing inside bc place, but when beyonce hit the floor, she really did put on a show. the stadium was down right shaking when the music came on. it was a good show but ran way too late on a weeknight

day 1814 – potato wedges

img_20200130_2133103170956927204688666.jpga great win for the team as we strung together six solid innings to win by seven. timely defensive plays helped keep everyone in the game including my first time ever gunning out someone at home plate. spontaneity got the better part of me today as i was driving home after my game. it wasn’t great but wasn’t bad either and i wished i saved my quota for good poutinery found in downtown. i didn’t finish the whole thing but at least i can say i’ve tasted the timmy’s poutine
