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

day 1200 – pirate night

vdl goes pirate for this season’s pubnight. i’ve stayed away from spiked drinks for much of the year, but pubnight is usually the only time i allow myself to drink some. taking a few shots early on with the team and then marcom department. i was definitely feeling over the top for a while, but had to sober up quickly to continue some exec duties. i was skeptical about going before, but luckily didn’t miss this season’s main event. i thought i could brush it off the downer feeling, but once again, i’m reminded that priorities are not set equal

day 1193 – skittles night

rdl execs hard at work getting ready for project skittles pubnight. rdl is still young and growing, but this is the biggest pubnight yet. yelling over drunk and sober rowdy people all night long isn’t recommended; i got home and realized my throat is dry and scratchy. regardless, it was a fun night just getting together with the league and getting to know people that i have seen but never really met. even won a bottle of barbecue sauce to take home with me. i’m disappointed that the priorities wasn’t there, but sometimes it’s better to find out than to never realize where you stand

day 1121 – team bbq

image

my softball team celebration bbq with endless supply of food and plenty of alcohol. i stayed away from that and designated myself as the cook in charge of making food; i don’t think i’ve ever stood in front of a grill for such a long time. it got a little crazy after some downed a few rounds of shots, while i did play a little beer pong before i called it a night. i went home really tired smelling like oil, grease and smoke, but it was a good teambonder

day 1023 – knutsford happy hour

image

after a morning and afternoon of family time visiting both grandmas on opposite side of the city, i was off on my own schedule. representing fifty percent of the underconstruction crew in knutsford – a version of lan kwai fong. we had happy hour drinks and potato wedges. i kept my promise and stayed away from alcoholic drinks and ordered a mango passion fruit mocktail instead. our post shopping meal was at a noodles shop called tam jai sam jor. i really can’t afford to get any fatter on this asia trip
