day 2338 – nacho christmas

i showed up fashionably late to nacho friends christmas party after my weightlifting session. it was a potluck dinner with a white elephant exchange. we also played playstation nhl and a couple board games. there’s was so much food leftover because everyone brought way too much to the potluck. i ended up taking home half the things i brought and then some. i don’t really know how i feel hanging out with some group – it’s no longer the same feeling

day 2336 – tong’s christmas

the annual christmas dinner at tong’s residence never has any shortage of tasty food. as a tradition, mom makes a delicious stuffed turkey every year. this year, to complement the turkey were cauliflower pancakes, roasted bacon wrapped enoki, turmeric salmon, baked rice and green salad. a special day is meant to be shared with the special people in my life. thank goodness it wasn’t a full day of eating with no exercise. it was nice to step out for a couple hours to train a bit at flightclub

say 2329 – potluck dish

my appetizer dish for the annual hospitality designs christmas potluck is smoked salmon on rice crackers. there’s a whole assortment of food including sushi, fried rice, noodles, fried chicken, samosas, pizza, salad, meatballs, chili and cakes to name a few. i tried to have a variety, but some things just weren’t for me. the food was okay, but the extended lunch break was good to calm down some of the work stress

day 2285 – hotpot season

mom wanted to do hotpot at home tonight since everyone was present for dinner. i think she was indirectly hinting that i’m rarely home and she’s not wrong. normally, i wouldn’t be home so early if it wasn’t for my failing foot that trapped me indoors. lots of food on the table with a full selection of veggies and some meat slices. there’s also no shortage of tofu because i need my daily dose

day 2246 – cta 2019

call to action conference day two was much the same – more learning and more networking. the hype of the swag chase died down. conferences like this presents great learning opportunity, just tough on my body because i’m not used to sitting and staying still for long periods of time. i walked out with a couple friends to have a sushi lunch close to tinseltown. unbounce fed us plenty through the two days. i didn’t attend the after party, but i heard there’s a lot of food and drinks offered

day 2014 – lunar new year meal

lunar new year calls for a family feast that fills my dining table. it was a full on ten course meal that started with a fish corn soup and ended with a sparkling juice. i enjoyed the meal and quality time because we were in the comfort of our own dining room which i much prefer over crowding into fully booked restaurants. its crazy how fast time goes by. here’s hoping the year of the pig will be a good and prosperous one

day 1987 – hotpotting

had a bunch of friends crash my house for hotpot because they heard i have the whole house all to myself this week. i don’t normally get a chance to host any parties simply cause i don’t have my own place. it’s my first hotpot of the cold wintery days. i’m so full from stuffing down all the food including beef, pork, assorted meat balls, fish tofu, mushrooms, daikon, and veggies. there’s a lot of cleaning up to do after stuffing our faces but fortunately there was a dishwasher within the group
