day 1294 – vday special

img_20200204_1635005981641568646211686.jpgit was an eventful day at the office with a brief afternoon team building event. my legs are sore from the weekend seminar, but gladly stopped by st edwards’s and worked them some more. nothing special for a vday, just a simple day spent sharing a bubble tea at the end of the day. today is an exception where i allow myself to indulge on food i can’t normally have. i’ll just eat sparingly and do extra to work it off. this one briefly poked his face into mine on this special day of ours; going strong at eleven

third anniversary special edition

over a thousand days later, tongtongvision has reached it’s third anniversary. what i started three years ago as a small undertaking has emerged into something very special; my life writes it, and it writes my life. dedicating this year’s special edition to showcase clips of my 2016 nationals in calgary. as always, a traveling experience and teambonding experience that had no shortage of fun and stressful times, but left me with some crazy memories. i take all the experiences learned and hope that it will come in handy one day. i am not sure how many more nationals i have in me, but i want each succeeding one to be better than the previous. life is about making progress, life is about never settling for less than what you believe in

 

day 1079 – partner in crime

there were uncalled emotional moments which i couldn’t suppress. tears happened because i have been pretending to be strong for too long. i can count on him knowing he wants to be there during my worst and toughest moments. it has been very tough lately, but i know it’s much easier to weather the storm together. happy for the passing of another month; keeping it strong and keeping it real throughout

day 1054 – fancy feast

#justimage

a rare fancy occurrence on the island for a belated celebration of our significant day. we chowed down on the many fresh seafood dockside had to offer including squid, halibut, salmon, scallop and mussels. i couldn’t have asked for more than celebrating with great company in a great atmosphere. time really flew us by; we’ve been keeping it steady and strong. three months ago, i couldn’t imagine what i was getting myself into; today, i can’t imagine what it would have been without

day 1049 – pudding undertaking

image

we had a little mango pudding experiment to commemorate another one of our special day. neither one of us had a clue what we were doing, but we got the job done. it looks great but we’ll have to taste test tomorrow to find out if it’s the real deal. happy three months to the stubborn guy who does the little things to make my everyday a little better, or simply just being there for me

day 1019 – starter hike

image

bringing mo to quarry rock for the first hike of this season. it started off being chilly, but the stairs warmed us up soon enough. neither of us are cardio people; we were tired from the beginning but we couldn’t stop because that would make us look bad. we sped through the trail and finished the round trip in slightly over an hour. looking forward to going on more hikes this summer. oh, did i mention happy two months?

day 801 – vintage

image

vintage coca cola bottles up for grab after today’s thanksgiving lunch potluck. i have been pretty good at staying away from carbonated pop over the past couple months. i am guilty of having one today because i couldn’t resist the vintage bottles, but let’s get back to none for the next little while. thanksgiving potluck at an appropriate time to end off what felt like a very long week. one that hasn’t allowed for much sleep, making me a super weary and tired soul, but heck i really don’t sleep much anyways and definitely not the prescribed healthy amount. this long weekend comes timely and i will designate some time to make up for the lack of sleep

second anniversary special edition

second anniversary special for recognizing and celebrating tongtongvision reaching yet another milestone. snippets of my 2015 canadian nationals in montreal which was a little different than last year’s toronto. still a trip filled with everything you can imagine from good times, crazy times, stressful times, exhausting times, but still creating lots of memories and meeting new people along the way. hope to go more places and with more of the gang to create more of these memories in the future, don’t let it stop, cheers to making it through another year of seesaw epicness, keeping it strong and hope it grows and only gets even better from here onwards

day 667 – milestone mileage

image

it’s with excitement i announce my shadow surpassed the 50000 mileage today. it’s taken me to a whole new level of smooth ride and i couldn’t have asked for anymore than what it has provided me. our relationship is approaching two years, feels like our bonding only began just yesterday. shadow is a true work horse working overtime all the time and still going strong to serve me day after day

first anniversary special edition

prepared a little something special as part of tongtongvision reaching a big milestone of its first anniversary. congratulations on making through the first year, it wasn’t easy but it’s definitely worth it. clips throughout my 2014 nationals adventure to toronto and new york. a trip filled with everything you can imagine from good times, crazy times, stressful times, exhausting times, all combined but nonetheless endless team bonding memories. hope to go more places with this gang and create more of these memories in the future, don’t let it stop. this is just the beginning that could possibly lead to something much bigger and better
