day 2144 – father’s and mother’s

combining father’s day and mother’s day dinner into one this year because my parents and i have taken turns going on vacation. we went for the typical chinese seafood restaurant at fraser court. we wanted to try a place we don’t normally go to, but it’s safe to say we won’t be back for a while. it was a very laid back kind of sunday where i didn’t have to wake up for anything so i slept in until noon. i guess i’m still making up sleep from the vacation days where it was always go go go

day 2127 – afternoon tea

this would be my very first afternoon tea of my life and i must say it’s one expensive meal. i enjoyed the food, but it was a lot of pastry and sweets to take in for one sitting and i left feeling unusually bloated. the delicacy is way too much for my stomach and wallet to enjoy. the calories intake is defiitely something i can’t afford anymore often than once a year. i don’t know what constitutes a good afternoon tea, but i’m not one to look too deeply into it. starting to have traces of missing home

day 2113 – catchup time

it’s probably my fault that some hangouts happen less frequently than it should. finally catching up with a long time highschool friend over some food. it was good to just chat and download all the things that’s gone by. i realize all she wanted to do was to treat me to a meal for my birthday. i really do cherish that so much of our lives has changed, but our friendship hasn’t. maybe next time we can get a few of the core people out all at once

day 2101 – celebrating my existence

the celebration of my birth with my family comes a day before because my parents are flying out for vacation. i couldn’t decide on a japanese restaurant, so settled with dai jung kum instead. we enjoyed a good dinner together completed with a combo with no shortage of food on the table – barbecue meat, seafood pancake, dumplings, soup and side dishes. i enjoyed the dinner very much, not because of the delicious food, but the opportunity to sit down and share it with my family. my birthday would never be complete unless i can spend some quality time with my loved ones that would never leave me behind

day 2100 – dual birthdays

we haven’t gone out for lunch in a while but may birthdays gives us an excuse to do so. we went to steveston ora sushi for some bentos. we don’t see each other as much ever since we split buildings. the lunch hangout was brief, but it still hit the spot. and so the birthday meals begins and goes through until sunday. as expected, i may be sick of food by the end of this weekend

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 2024 – sushi sushi

a japanese dinner doesn’t sound like a bad idea. although i didn’t get to go to the restaurant of my choice, i still got some delightful rolls and aburi sushi. my eating as a whole hasn’t been good for the last while due to stress and binge eating. i’ll clean up my eating after today and the long weekend. but for now i’ll eat my share and get some of my system
