day 989 – date night

image

a nice sumptuous dinner and night out in the neighbourhood for reaching our first little milestone together. having connections really does help; hooked ourselves up with some good fusion tapas at torafuku. the restaurant is not located in a prominent area, the decor does not wow anyone with its interior, but eaters are drawn to focus on the flavour and essence of the food. it’s been one heck of a month and i only look forward to all the times we’ll share and all the memories we’ll create

day 940 – cirque tour

image

thinking back to the olden days when i watched cirque du soleil totem right here in false creek vancouver. i adore watching all cirque shows alike because what they do is amazing and it’s nothing i can and will attempt in a million years. doesn’t look like they have any scheduled tours to vancouver this year, maybe it’s also an excuse to make a road trip

day 834 – i like climbing

image

wandering around false creek on this off day doing what i like to do, climbing things and breaking rules. yes, there’s a sign that says please do not climb, but sometimes it’s worth pushing boundaries. spending remembrance day going about some adventures, then also being proactive and completing a circuit before the day’s end. everything i accomplished felt like a very fulfilling day to me and i really do wish i could have more days where i feel this way

day 641 – night photography

tonight was a rather chilly night, but went out with a friend in search of the picture worthy places around town to capture some of the very best of vancity. this is my first time taking out my expensive toy and a tripod to take night shots. it is also my first attempts to play around with dslr and long exposures functions. here’s a pretty dandy shot which i thought deserved tonight’s notable mention. some of the pictures turned out quite well. i think i’ll have to invent more time in photography to get better understanding of my camera’s capabilities

day 301 – cirque du soleil totem night

image

watching cirque du soleil and eating at bullock butcher to end of the day. this would be my third cirque show and they always provide some amazing entertainment and exhilarating experience. these acrobats have insane skills, coordination and flexibility to do things most people never even imagine. wish i could pick up some of those skills, for instance some flips would be awesome

day 281 – nice view

image

the scenic view overlooking false creek towards downtown. cloudy skies until it started coming down just like the typical vancouver weather. at the clinic today doing some usual fix up and fine tuning to make sure everything works as well as it could before i leave town for competition out east
