day 2172 – federer wimbledon

waking up for a federer wimbledon final at 6am was never in question. although it pains me to see federer lose after pouring his heart out, his play was still amazing, matching his opponent shot for shot. in my heart he won the match because he was unfortunate to lose three tiebreaks. i do however wish i had a chance to take a quick nap before a working a colour belt test. good thing it went smoothly and i can go home and use what’s left of the weekend to rest

day 2069 – cake ceremony

rushed home to get the cake ceremony done otherwise my mom will be pissed that the cake is still sitting in the fridge. i didn’t really understand why we bought the cake so far in advance when it should technically be done on wednesday. the dessert didn’t fit too well in my diet though the mango mousse is not the only thing that’s wrecking my diet. time really does fly and we’re already until the fourth month of the year and it’ll be my birthday in a month’s time

day 2068 – sushimoto bro

having sushi at sushimoto for my brother’s early birthday dinner because our weekdays are too busy. my brother and i can never get sick of japanese food. we ordered some of their specialties like salmon belly, saba oshis, organic rolls and of course sashimi which all tasted delicious. too bad the quality of their food wasn’t backed up by their service. the waitress messed up our order and tried to blame us instead

day 1945 – nappy

no point in staying at work when my eyes wouldn’t stay open even under the influence of caffeine. from past experience, the jetlag usually hits me hardest on the second day. everyone told me to set an alarm clock, which i did. i went home intending to take a short nap, but i passed out for four hours only to notice my parents were already eating dinner. good luck trying to fall asleep tonight

day 1756 – japanese kitkat

coworker came back from japan trip with goodies to share. of the many flavors she brought back, i chose the matcha and sake. of the many kitkat flavors i’ve ever tried, matcha is still my favourite. a headache made me feel crappy this morning, i didn’t think i’d stay at the office the whole day. popping a few advils seemed to have helped me head and got me through the rest of it. calling it an earlier day and hopeful it gets better by tomorrow

day 1745 – mom appreciationĀ 

the fact my family is going on vacation starting tomorrow means an early mothers day celebration. i don’t show enough, but i truly appreciate my supermom that never fails to take care of me. we rarely go out for vietnamese food cause my parents don’t like the seating, but had to try this place since it’s a highly touted authentic vietnamese restaurant. the lineup outside is always so long, somehow we got a table within fifteen minutes of waiting. this prices wasn’t cheap for sure, but the food was really good, especially the lemon grass chicken. when i said may is a busy month, i do mean it 

day 1688 – cupcake surpriseĀ 

cupcake and bubble tea for a surprise pre-birthday celebration. a simple way to show appreciation for a long time teammate, and a friend above all. this team has stuck together for so many years, even i forget how many seasons we have been throwing and dodging together. there’s something special about this team that’s not letting me walk away from vdl entirely. in any case, this could be a reunion tour for some of us so cherish it while we can
