day 2095 – xingfu tea

i didn’t do what i wanted to do this morning – have my xrays taken. it would have been a killer to wake up at 8am after a late night for walk in clinic. one thing i did do was stop at the newest bubble tea shop after our civil war game. i ordered their speciality brown sugar pearl with milk tea. it tasted good, but nothing crazy enough for me to line up for. in fact, i probably would prefer something else because it was too sweet for my normal liking. drinks aside, i just like to hang out with this bunch after games

day 2076 – card building

all the girls team wanted to hangout and chill over some bubble tea, so we did a late night boba visit. this is so bad for my diet but i was determined to keep the damage to a minimal by only drink half my half sweet taro slush. first time in a while we sat down as a team and just chatted. we also played some big two and card building while some munched on sushi and bubble waffle. i’m going to pay for staying out so late tomorrow morning

day 2070 – tsujiri extravaganza

i said i’d treat myself to tsujiri once i land my roundoff backtuck which i did. it’s finally my turn to try out the hyped tsujiri matcha dessert. the rumoured lineup is real and if you don’t go in the middle of the day for the opening rush, there’s no chance of getting their cakes. can’t believe there’s so much hype for this place even after a month of its grand opening. the foodies i went with got multiple cakes and drinks, but i settled with a double fromage matcha cake

day 1973 – annual turkey feast

another year has gone by and it’s time for another tong’s family turkey feast on christmas day. this year features the main event juicy turkey stuffed with fried rice, with baked pork loin, cod and cilantro, baked potato crisps, grilled asparagus and choice of wine pairing. so many dishes on the table we almost ran out of real estate. i didn’t get to taste every dish before i got way too full. everything tasted really good and of course the turkey was my favourite of all. i think it’s safe to say i need to go on a cut after the holiday celebrations

day 1959 – swiss roll

it’s a bad idea when you hang out with food friends and all they want is try new dessert places. they also want to split the foods with you and inadvertently split the calories that comes with. this is a piece of the oolong tea swiss roll with a load of ganache in the centre. it was very tasty as expected. i wonder how my mildly lactose body will respond after devouring that

day 1939 – mr. brown

had a day with my parents before heading to grandma’s place for a homecooked dinner. we spent the day shopping at apm and in the area of guan tong. i didn’t but anything in particular, except a matcha ice cream waffle cone from tsujiri. i tell myself it’s okay to indulgence a little, as long as i keep up with the walking and workout. i did, however, meet gigantic mr brown and couldn’t resist the urge to climb on him as per usual. i started a lineup of kids also wanting to sit on gigantic mr brown

day 1933 – dim some

landed in hong kong and why was i not shocked to be greeted by relatives with some dimsum. it’s great to see my relatives, but when they take charge of ordering, it always seem to have too much food on the table. either they think we don’t have adequate dimsum in vancouver or we eat a lot, which neither is the case. i must have some portion control during this week bombarded with family meals. i sure hope i don’t go overweight by the time this asia trip is over
