day 2234 – harrison weekend

booked it out to harrison hot springs after killarney. this the largest hotel suite i’ve ever seen and the place the shower squad is staying at for jax’s stag part one. this place was chosen for its full kitchenette so we could have a taco night. we stayed up plenty late playing tons of drinking card games. i never expected that we’ll get much sleep tonight, but i just don’t want a hangover tomorrow

day 2193 – squirtle announcement

it wasn’t a well kept secret, but the formal announcement was made at the dundas team dinner. squirtle assistant captain is tying the knot next summer and the date is set. so happy for her and looking forward to the stag parties we will be having. we had a round of shots to celebrate and i only had an order of salad roll because i wanted to hit up open gym for some flips

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 2076 – card building

the gstrings wanted to hangout and chill over some bubble tea, so we did a late night boba visit. this is so bad for my diet, but i was determined to keep the damage to a minimal by only drinking half of my half sweet taro slush. first time in a quite some time we sat down as a team and just chilled. we also played some big two and card building while some golfed down sushi and bubble waffles. i’m going to pay for staying out so late tomorrow morning

day 2053 – nerf shenanigans

the championship win was just an excuse to have a squirtle house party. it’s just another reason for the team to get together for a bonder. i skipped the dinner, but arrived just in time for the team shots. it was a fun night that had just about everything. we went from having nerf wars, to jamming with guitars, to playing story games, to some light sparring to some hockey goalie tutorials. the party went real late and i didn’t get home after past 4am. i haven’t had such a late night in a long time, but i’m glad i did

day 1964 – after party shenanigans

received_2095241432874066105530600905679127.jpegthe design team carried the christmas party tradition of hosting the after party. just like every year, this is where the real party begins and wild things happen. one of the few occasions i would let loose and be downing vodka, makgeolli and soju. i had a few rounds and was somehow involved in wrestling activities. the drunken people were hilarious and made many lasting scenes. it was a really fun night chilling and drinking with this group. it wasn’t until 3am that i returned back to my own room. so many good memories but whatever happens in harrison stays in harrison

day 1886 – sophistication

i’ve joined the club of sophistication now that i’ve successfully bought some special matcha tea and become a member of david’s tea. becoming a matcha addict is quite the unique taste because matcha powder is so pricey and so hard to find. hopefully i can brew the perfect cup of matcha latte with proper frothing machine. if this goes well, i’ll be back for more

day 1585 – christmas with company

it’s not often, but sometimes i try and could look quite classy too. it’s that time of the year to dress up for the annual harrison hotsprings company christmas party. the party was catered buffet with an open bar. came out having enjoyed good food, lots of photos and a nice big door prize. the dinner party was just the beginning; the after party was where the main event was at. perfect time to put on the party hat to join in on the games and the shots of soju that came with. it was a good night of partying that didn’t settle down until 3am. i’ll be tired and maybe even hungover, but i’ll enjoy myself to the fullest

day 1373 – sumptuous birthday


spending my birthday in vegas wasn’t my preference because everything i have and need is at home. although i’d rather be spending it in vancity, i can’t deny it was a good experience with scatters of good time. sitting next to my big boss for my birthday dinner is definitely a one of a kind experience. he had a lot of interesting insights and life advice after having a few drinks. time is flying by so quickly; celebrating getting another year older with sushi delicacy, drinks and a surprise dessert

dodgeball at pubs

photo proof of this season’s unforgettable night at the pubs. i had a blast at rdl’s skittles pubnight and vdl’s pirate pubnight featuring lots of food, games, raffles, puns and not to be forgotten – the booze. it’s always a good time hanging out with other players i wouldn’t normally get a chance to see or play against. it’s also the place where team bonding happens because things can get a little wild
