day 2301 – surrendered bubble tea

because i was still feeling the ill-effects of the bronchitis, cough and cold, i surrendered my free bubble tea to someone who would be able to enjoy it more. over a week of intense coughing day and night. i’ve gone through bottles of cough syrup, packets of lozenges and endless tylenol cold pills, yet i still can’t get some quality sleep during the night. all i want is to rid this nagging cough, sore throat and runny nose

day 2102 – matcha birthday

an action packed birthday that came with many surprises. since i was up early for my parents’ flight, i stopped to get the my free frappuccino birthday drink – most expensive drink of their menu. the afternoon was spent at gstrings playoffs. though questionable about the tiering, we played our hardest and fought until the very end. the girls surprised me by bringing me a post playoff  birthday cake. a dinner with the squirtle girls followed by our regular saturday night hockey. i’m very happy to have capped off the eventful day with two goals at civil war. i had an amazing birthday doing the activities i enjoy, with the some of the most lovable people

day 2075 – bench shelter

the showroom luggage bench i brought home for my parents is revamped with new and improved legs. this hybrid luggage bench and nightstand is now sitting in my living room and turned into a shelter for my family’s number four. i brought it home thinking it’d be the bench for putting on shoes, but i’ll leave the final decision to my parents, as long as they put it to good use

day 2073 – pearl fever

i happily holding onto my bubble reward for the twenty back tucks i was challenged to do. the perfect reward to end a frustrating and stressful week that made me want to walk out. i didn’t have any appetite even though i was hungry. i’m glad i didn’t go straight home and instead hung out with my friends to wind up the friday night. this would be my first milk tea from the highly touted pearl fever and it didn’t disappoint. the thirty percent sweet was perfect and just how i like it even though my friend who bought it didn’t think so

day 2054 – winner’s dinner

winning a hockey bet this season scored me a free steak dinner. this is the second season we had this bet for a fishsticks point race and are having this bet and i narrowly edged out the win. enjoying an earl’s sirloin steak before catching captain marvel. i really liked the main character and enjoyed the plot twist in the movie despite it receiving many negative reviews

day 2038 – design brunch

we’re overdue for a group activity so we’re treated to a design brunch at comina. we took advantage of the nice day out and walked around steveston area and fisherman’s wharf before heading back to work. some bought plants, a few grabbed mini donuts, and many grabbed coffee during our ‘free’ time. sometimes a breath of fresh air relieves some stress and pulls us out of a things we shouldn’t be caught up with

day 1972 – stick and pucking

winter break and off days are the best time to sleep in and catch up on what i’ve lacked all year round. it’s also a good time to put in some extra practice at the stick and puck sessions i wouldn’t otherwise have been able to make. getting a free pass to christmas eve afternoon stick and puck session to work on some shots, pivots and stick handling sounded like a good choice
