day 2100 – dual birthdays

we haven’t gone out for lunch in a while but may birthdays gives us an excuse to do so. we went to steveston ora sushi for some bentos. we don’t see each other as much ever since we split buildings. the lunch hangout was brief, but it still hit the spot. and so the birthday meals begins and goes through until sunday. as expected, i may be sick of food by the end of this weekend

day 2097 – egg whites

felt like giving myself one day break off my normal hardboiled eggs this monday morning. i’ve always wondered how these starbucks egg whites taste like so this was my chance. it’s tastefully cheesy and also way too many calories than i should have. that satisfied my curiosity but i will go back to my two hardboiled eggs next morning. i also had a mango dragonfruit to go along with it

day 2005 – sushi nanaimo

it was unplanned to skip lunch and go straight for dinner. food is usually really low on my saturday priority list because teaching takes me most of my energy. it was especially draining since some students taking promotion test tomorrow wasn’t performing up to my standards. fueled up with my parents at sushi nanaimo before playing my fishsticks hockey game

day 1961 – fishy cravings

it hasn’t been long since i had some. but the fish craving is pretty strong once again since i didn’t get a fair share of sashimi during my vacation. going without sushi for more than week is rare, but it’s hard to be picky when on vacation. also, i was told not to trust the salmon within many places in asia. the best fishes are on the west coast, so it only makes sense i take full advantage of them and abuse my rights

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

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
