day 1616 – double yolk

mom cooked lots of food for dinner and bought mooncake for dessert to celebrate mid autumn festival with the family. it gets harder and harder to have a full family dinner because my schedule is just so packed. i’m glad they understand that i am working hard and grinding every single day. they know i’m hardworking trying to establish a better future but they’re always concerned i don’t eat. i’ll just make the most of the special dinners we get together. i guess i can allow myself to have meals and desserts this once in a while. i hate being called fat, but maybe i’ll just have to accept it’s the truth and that i’m getting fat

day 1613 – family affair

dining out at dinesty with hong kong relatives from australia was a pleasure. they’ve been staying over at my house for the past couple days but haven’t had much time to interact with them at all. i’m glad i was able to arrange a time to take them out for dinner before they leave tomorrow morning. it was slightly rushed dinner before i had to go off to my hockey game. i’m officially on the board for vachl with my assist today. the point came at the expense of my butt falling hard on pants that no longer have proper padding

day 1276 – lunar new year

my mom prepared way too much food for the lunar chinese new year hotpot. it was a good dinner to close off the year and i’m looking to continue my workaholic ways in the year of the rooster; this is the time work extra hard. i’m stuffed but we did not even clear half the amount of food on this table, so i expect to have another hotpot this weekend. i don’t like the feeling of feeling bad for having eaten

day 1263 – barbie’s birthday

it’s cake time for the one and only barbie i’ve ever had in my life. an asian fruity sponge cake to make him feel special on his special day. i think deep down he’s happy just having all members of the family gathered for a good meal and then some cake. it was good that i caught up on some sleep because i needn’t set an alarm. it was an even better day being lomo’s happy tenth. we were both busy and didn’t have our celebration, but we’ll have it tomorrow

day 1262 – tofu fanatic

the whole family gathered to celebrate my dad’s birthday. there were many dishes on the table just like any typical chinese seafood restaurant, but this was by far my favourite dish. i enjoyed a good sit down meal with my family, we haven’t had much opportunity to engage like tonight. thankful i made it to friday. this week has been brutal as i had wavering moments and tons on my mind. it’s not resolved, but i’m holding it together

day 1243 – family christmas

it’s another christmas dinner, this time a party with my family. everyone chipped in with at least a dish; mom provided the turkey with stuffing just like every year. there was also papaya soup, baked sole, avocado salad, salmon pinwheels, and ice wine. i’m blessed to have shared the many laughs on this special day with my loved ones and hope that everyone else did as well. finished off a wonderful christmas day watching a tokyo drift with the company of mo. i couldn’t ask for a better way to spend the evening of christmas day

day 1198 – japan travels

image

memoir of my traveling days this spring, visiting family in hong kong and then japan. it was a very simple yet dangerous phenomenon that made me gain weight in the wrong way – basically eating out everyday and going temple hopping all day long. the nightlife, shopping, ramen, sushi and attractions were all great. the only thing i can’t get used to is the humidity and inaccessibility of fitness facilities. i enjoyed the exploration and look forward to my next travels wherever it may take me
