day 2148 – first renderings

a look back at my first marketing rendering i did for the kits collection brochure. a lot of new learnings happened during my first crack at sketchup and vray plugins. i like that i’ll have a lot more freedom to explore sketchup and vray as a whole while creating branding for my own work. i see this also as an opportunity to improve the many skills i’ve longed for

day 1993 – parents los cabos

i rushed from flipping to pick up my parents from the airport after their eight day travel to the sunny los cabos. it so happened to be my dad’s birthday, but they didn’t really feel like eating out when they returned, i guess there was too much of that in mexico. it sounded like they had a relaxing time escaping the cold weather of vancity. i’m glad they live life to its fullest and travel as often as they like. though i lose some freedom, i do restore the regular my eating routine

day 1397 – sriracha spaghetti

made our own recipe of sriracha tomato sauced spaghetti for dinner. i’ll be picking up my parents from the airport tonight so this is the last homecooking while we have the entire place to ourselves. i enjoyed the freedom and peace, but one my priority it to embrace their presence and build better rapport like the good old days. today also marks the six year anniversary of my first foot fracture. i can’t say i’ll ever be able to treat it like normal again; paranoia usually takes over

day 1139 – parent’s chauffeur

parents flew home from toronto and i was the chauffeur who brought them home safely. their extended weekend in ontario went by too quickly but they do travel often so i’m already anticipating the next one. happy to have special delivery and spent the last of my unlimited freedom with mo and my half sweet taro. sometimes, just sometimes, he makes me feel like a princess

day 1124 – breakfast buffet

image

had to indulge in hotel breakfast buffet before heading back to vancouver where reality lies. the selection of food choices was overwhelming, but the omelet and smoked salmon were my favourite. i allowed myself to eat a lot less restrictive because it’s vacation time. now that my trip is over, it’s back to my being meticulous and back to my routine eating. the weekend flew by so quickly simply because i enjoyed myself. looking forward to planning our next trip, but in the meantime, must work hard and make sure it’s a well derseved one

day 1082 – stanley park demo

image

time to pull out that blue uniform to perform at walk with the dragon like every july. i don’t miss the 8am stanley park mornings, the dragon walk around seawall, or the several hours under either the blazing sun or pouring rain. what’s different about this year is we have more control and freedom as to how we want to structure our demo. the team performed well this year and everything ran as smoothly as it could. i can say this is one of my best demo performances to date, especially executing my triple side breaking better than all the times at rehearsal

day 888 – gym life

image

while my parents sent me a picture of themselves at the gym in mexico resort, so was i. getting on with my 2016 gyming just like any other day. is it really true that people make new year’s resolution to hit the gym starting january doesn’t get past the first week?? there’s not many survivors here from what i can see, but i am not complaining cause that means more space for me. less waiting and more doing to climbing closer to my fitgoals with every rep
