day 1010 – en route

image

a whole day of togetherness gives us opportunities for our adventures. en route to metropolis after hitting up nash together for the first time. it wasn’t a productive session since we were playing with machines we would not typically touch, but it was a fun workout nonetheless. look forward to having more gym time with this fellow. unlike all our other hangouts, we started the day so early and actually had a chance to see daylight and sunshine. we definitely need more days like this

day 926 – deadpool me

image

occupying myself with timeplay and patiently waiting for deadpool to begin. i am usually not a big enough movie fan to watch blockbuster movies on premier day, but couldn’t turn down the avx tickets offer. don’t want to spoil it for everyone else. all i’m going to say is it’s a good movie and i loved ryan reynold’s tricking moves and secretly wished i could learn some of them, but i was not expecting it to be so gory

day 590 – spin at river rock

image

what would i do after friday night training on friday the 13th?? testing out my luck at the casino but it is heart stakingly painful to watch as my stack of chips depletes. i am holding onto my stack of chips and playing it carefully, thinking i make strategic wagers that will win everything back. i didn’t break even but at least i went in with a set amount that i would bet so i knowing i can walk out without breaking my bank

day 576 – baby shower

image

everyone chipped in for a big baby shower present and an early farewell party. so much food to be had during the potluck party i consumed too much and feel way too bloated to stay awake. i am sure i am not the only one that feels sluggish and unproductive for the rest of afternoon. the decoration balls are impressively made from raw tissue paper through following some tutorials. the power of youtube videos are amazing

day 569 – cupcakes from cupcakes

image

never had a cupcakes and mancakes from cupcakes before, but i don’t generally don’t have a sweet tooth for cupcakes so i don’t know what particular quality makes a cupcake good. apparently these were four dollars a piece so i assume it’s amazing, but one thing for sure is it looks amazing. friday social brought us together to get together and mingle alongside some drink and food to get us fed

day 492 – stop drop selfie

image

my interpretation of a constipation face or just a normal reaction from the pain of rolling out knots. i figured the most appropriate response to the stop drop selfie challenge is to do a stop drop and roll selfie, literally. thought this was a pretty good way to end the week by taking awkward pictures of myself foam rolling on the ground after a friday night class. the truth is, i do this quite often

day 422 – draft day

image

it’s finally friday which means it’s the usual friday night taekwondo training. here’s today’s after class special, taiwanese kimchi fried rice paired with basketball fantasy draft. picked up pretty much all the players i had in mind and can’t wait to see how my team matches up through the league. wouldn’t say i drafted based on building a winning team, but drafted based on players i liked, hopefully that still gives me a good chance

day 409 – borealis aurora

image

up at the mountain top past 2am hoping to spot the northern lights this weekend. disappointed didn’t end up seeing it before police started kicking people out but still had a good time and the lions gate bridge and city lights from above was a bonus. snapshots from burnaby mountain with maximum zoom. taken with a tripod and canon dslr like a professional, no filter required

day 233 – selfie

image

the sun is out but don’t let that fool you into thinking it’s warm enough to wear tshirt outside. i tried today and my face and limbs felt like popiscle before i knew it. had some spare time between my meetings and commitments so decided it was a good idea to pull over and take a selfie with an asian pose, first one ever posted here and i presume there will be more to follow

day 142 – christmas classic nunchucks

image

as a typical christmas special on last week before holidays, spent some class time practicing and fine tuning some nunchucks tricks. smacked myself ample times but now that i got better control of it, find it pretty fun but still painful. now i feel hungry to learn cooler tricks and maybe even double nunchucks
