day 1941 – wanchai

one wishlist item on my hong kong trip is to ride the old school tram. i did just that today heading to wanchai from central. this district is crazy packed on any given night, let alone a saturday night. i stopped by my friend’s family burger shop but decided not to bother his dad seeing the already jam packed restaurant. instead, we ate at a small noodle house and walked around some famous strip including a school converted shopping mall

day 1899 – cloudkicks

it was definitely an eye opening and jaw dropping event at flightclub this evening. trickers came from all over north america including calgary, seattle, california, illinois and even hawaii. everyone who came to battle was showcasing how they could defy gravity with triples and quads. though i just went into the clinic to realign my back, i still forced it to attend class and then the special seminars held by loopkicks thereafter. seeing what can be done inspires me with what i can learn

day 1878 – karaoke night

team outing to millenium after playing our usual friday night hockey. it was a hard fought loss while being short on girls; we survived with three girls in the rotation. i was having so much fun at karaoke but had to leave early for work next day’s work. sang a bunch of retro jay chou, beyond, hacken, 98 degrees, backstreet boys and nsync certainly brings back a lot of good old memories. my throat was pretty dry by the end of the night, but it was an awesome night

day 1843 – back on field

my shoulder still feel restricted and painful in outstretched positions, but back in my cleats and on the grass field playing softball for the first time in four weeks. i have to protect my shoulder by limiting the amount of movement it can do. realizing that’s quite difficult when i have to snatch all of throws that come my way to first base. i’m not going to lie it hurts when playing, and i’m sure that expected on my first games back

day 1759 – homework latte 

this evening is all about homeworking while holding onto my cup of latte. i could be having fun on friday night, but i chose to do some catch up work at forty ninth parallel. there’s never enough time for all the things i must get done and the extra stress is noticeably getting to me this week. two more sleeps of home alone before my family fly back from their europe trip. it sure seems like they’re having a good time, but my mom still checks in to make sure i’m doing okay

day 1591 – omega 

craved sushi and that’s exactly what i got tonight. it’s my go to eats that i can never get sick of and vancouver has good supply. as usual, i skip the fillers and go straight for the sashimi, a party size sashimi to share. loaded up on omega after a good session but also loaded up the bill. wouldn’t be able to do that too often but my tummy left satiated and satisfied. also feeling pretty good that the push aspect is still there, and working up on the pull

day 1430 –  squat hard 

i was definitely frustrated waking up because i stayed up working on payroll and i woke up with another email of explanations. work in the afternoon dragged on and i longed to get out. i didn’t feel particularly good during my workout today and felt weaker than other days. schedule just haven’t had time to hit up the gym. not having done so all week long is really showing in my squats but i still hit it hard knowing i’ll feel it even harder the next day
