day 1737 – birthday week

second of my birthday celebration comes with my hamber circle. i don’t usually have birthday parties or any dramatic birthday celebrations, but this one is a bigger one for me. dining at zakkushi and. i’m caught off guard when all of the sudden the lights shut off and music started playing. all the attention turned to me when the waiter brings out a small cake with candle and sparklers. i’m blessed to have grown up with this group. i hope these never change between us no matter how old we grow

day 1310 – matcha koala 

thank you for bringing me koalas when i needed a spark in my day. getting the special delivery eases the tears because it made me feel special. it’s not easy to swallow the heartless things i received, but with time, open ears and tender loving care, i will be okay. it wasn’t the best of days, but i’ll hold my head up and continue to trek. in the meantime, i’ve got a competition to get to and lots of last minute packing to do

day 1277 – touched

this sport comes with a lot of challenges; at times i lose sight of why i’m in it, but i’m thankful to be involved in this sport. this role assumes many responsibilities and comes with overwhelming stress, but little do i realize how much passion i have for taekwondo and how much pride i take in teaching. i never expected to get anything in return, but i’m truly blown away by the sincerity and appreciation of my students. i smiled when i read the blurb – it’s a simple gesture but i am touched

celebrating our birthdays together with fine dining up at seasons in the park. the patio view looking at downtown coupled with the delicacy made it very enjoyable. then mo pulled a few strings and surprised me with a mousse birthday cake. i must admit he caught me off guard but made the evening that much more incredible. i must stay alert and can never be too comfortable because he’ll throw a curveball at me when i least expect it. the night would have been near perfect if it weren’t for the brief drizzle; but we improvised with a plan b. it was a very special night and i couldn’t have asked for a better way to celebrate our birthdays

sitting across from me this evening is this fine looking who always makes me feel at ease. we can never get tired spending our down time together going for our lazy walks and finding our random adventures. we both have a very busy schedule, but we make all our time together count. making first appearance on my blog’s milestone 1000th day post is truly special. to be honest, hitting the millenium mark is very self satisfying. it’s been a great ride; let’s keep blogging it together through our various adventures towards many more milestones

turning another page of the calendar, to a month i don’t want to welcome. i knew way back that this day was going to arrive, but i was in denial all along. i was scared because every waking second is ticking away and inching closer to your inevitable leaving. every now and then i wish time would slow down just so it can prolong the time we have left together. i really do feel special that we get some alone time to have dinner out in the handful of days you have remaining. know that it’s a rare occasion to expand my unchartered food territory cause i only do this for you
