day 1844 – portabella burger

with the completion of civil war comes the season end barbecue. classic portabella mushroom burger is actually using a portabella as the top bun. it was a bit disappointing to run out of food at a barbecue. i didn’t get my weiner but i guess my body didn’t have use for that extra calories. we had to order church’s chicken just to feed the crew. just a night chilling with people i play with and against. i also got four big mosquito bites from the night even though i applied bug spray

day 1814 – potato wedges

a great win for the team as we strung together six solid innings to win by seven. timely defensive plays helped keep everyone in the game including my first time ever gunning out someone at home plate. spontaneity got the better part of me today as i was driving home after my game. it wasn’t great but wasn’t bad either and i wished i saved my quota for good poutinery found in downtown. i didn’t finish the whole thing but at least i can say i’ve tasted the timmy’s poutine

day 1735 – bumps and spikes

bonding time with teammates of bubble tea gobblers and getting ready to play some volleyball.  this time we faired a lot better and won two out of three games. although i don’t think it was wise to play with my ailing thumb but it’s hard to change a set stubborn mind. there was only bumps and spikes from me but no sets. between work and play, i had some down time at richmond centre and splurged on a pair of sweatpants and another hoodie. at least it’s something i have been eyeing for over a month 

day 1728 – penta social

went expecting to social with other penta players, but it wasn’t what i expected. there wasn’t much mingling involved, just eating, listening and drawing prizes. the social in this league is very different than the ones i’m used to going to; maybe the demographics is very different. the food was sub-par and disappointing, but at least we walked across the street to have a scoop of earnest. i’m surprised to see so many familiar faces within penta, many of which i met playing dodgeball

day 1684 – milky taro


the craving was there long ago, but this is actually my first taro bubble tea of the year and it was all in for the milky oreo taro slush. shared a kimchi fried rice but left the restaurant so full so worth it. it was also a fun social gathering of the civil war draft. as much as i wished for the sharks colour, i’m happy being in the golden ducks. both my ranking, scouting report was decent and being picked at where i was was good too. it’ll be a good season probably getting ice time playing multiple positions 

day 1671 – dimsuming


i don’t recall the last time i ate dimsum, but it’s  safe to say i can now eat them guilt free. my love for malaysian cake, ha gao and rice rolls never changed. switching up the diet has its perks for reasons i can enjoy food with variety. since the switch, my appetite has improved significantly, or maybe it’s just a result of improvement in my overall state of mind. either way, the trend is heading in the right place in multiple aspects of my life 

day 1667 – bbt hoppingĀ 

the bubble tea hopping around richmond continues with the tea mates. it’s no secret that i’m picky with my food; ordered the chocolate waffle cone but switched out the chocolate ice cream for matcha ice cream. i loved the ice cream even when at minus 6 and snowing. i tell myself it’s okay to have luxury as long as i’m keeping up with my activities and active lifestyle which i always have. the chilling out was then followed by a dodgeball night and then a hockey game. closed out the vachl regular season against familiar foes by adding to my point total
