day 1796 – oh canada 


a different canada day unlike any previous years where i had to host a taekwondo competition. this is the most laid back canada day i can remember, spent it helping my parents with some cleaning up and recycling old junk. the nagging headaches is really not going away, and making me feel uninterested. the long weekend continues with a nice dinner out st kishimoto before checking out a free concert. even though it was rainy and slightly cold, the swanguard stadium festivities and fireworks turned out

day 1780 – father’s dinner

end of the week finally came and the eye bag represents how much the work week has really exhausted me. the evening was spent celebrating father’s day with the man that taught me much of what i know. the family is a whole unit and it would be incomplete without any one of the members. we’re all busy in our own ways, but we make sure that never changes. the whole family gets together during special times like this

day 1752 – wagers win


scoring my way through to winning the wager of a sushi meal. from the exterior, i would never have known this was a eatery until my friend highly recommended. everything about this place is authentic – the decor to the service and the food. we ordered a sushi set platter, suonomono, dungeness crab california roll and tempura udon. what i had today were one of the finest and freshest nigiris ever tasted

day 1736 – appas and dongsaeng

and so the birthday celebration begins. taken out to lunch by colleague for shared birthday meal with an appa. the two appas and two dongsaengs gotten close because we’re late eating buddies. the four of us going all the way out to mr black for long lunch; i’ll probably end up working through tomorrow’s lunch. their menu features much fried katsu of all meats, but going out of my norm is acceptable once in a while. the decor was nice and food was decent, but kind of pricey if everything was regular priced. it was quite evident that traffic wasn’t very high at all

day 1725 – korean family


miss having lunch as a foursome since we got separated into two buildings. lunch time meet up at daan for a small reunion with the korean family.  the two big brothers looking after two little sisters, chauffeuring us and taking care of our orders. this was a good little nook that opened less than a month ago. everything was tasty but koreans take their spicy to the next level; red sauces full of peppers even when mild

day 1715 – ready player one 


girls night out to watch ready player one and eat teishoku. tuesdays are known for two things: taco tuesday and cheap movie night. this is the way asians think to get the best bang for buck; otherwise regularly priced at twenty four dollars. aotoya was good, but the service was so slow we literally waited forty minutes before food was served. as such, it made me miss my basketball game which was disappointing, but i was too hungry to pack it and go

day 1690 – squirtle bonder

bonder for squirtle squad at the fancy chop steakhouse. i went all out because i knew they were well known for steak and the prime rib i ordered was absolutely delicious. it’s one of the odd times i order medium rare and i actually get it done with a good amount of red in my meat. left with a pretty hefty bill but treating myself once in a while is not so bad. the squirtle jerseys are in and done; we’re ready for the spring season. it sounds like we have a good team and i’m really looking forward to it
