day 1705 – coffee and work


the easter long weekend continues and it has really let me shift my gears a little. i must admit not going into work throughout the weekend is a big change. homeworking at a coffee shop because month end means lots of work piling on. it feels working full time is not suffice as there’s not enough time to get them done during work hours. stationed my work and laptop at prado sipping on my customized latte. had to wrap up march with a work session and get some planning done for the month of april. it’ll be an interesting month as there’s a lot in store for april

day 1013 – steveston fun

image

sharing a waffle cone on our warm yet breezy steveston walk. there were hundreds of flavours to choose from, but decided we can’t go wrong with green tea and mango flavour ice cream. after training and training some more, i had a hard earned captain america movie date at marine gateway. our first time at the new cineplex theatres; parking was a hassle but the complex was very nice and well equipped with an abundance of stores conveniently around it

day 829 – gift of goodness

image

today i received a gift of goodness in a warm red cup. at first i was a little puzzled cause i didn’t know why. afterwards she told me she really appreciates all the help and wanted to thank me for the work i did. what i did was no big deal because i only do what i can whenever i can. it was a very nice gesture that filled my heart and made my day. this kind of action is a reminder to never overlook the act of kindness and any kind of acknowledgement. it’s the little things that adds up to mean a lot. i, for one, felt it today

day 773 – free bella gelateria

image

it’s friday, it’s sunny and i get free gelato. i guess even if life is feeling a little grim at the moment that a triple scoop strawberry, chocolate and matcha green tea cookie dough made it a smidgen better. but really got to stop eating all these sweets and get back into the routine. this is not the time to gain weight while trying to get back into the thick of things sooner or later

day 677 – last of it

image

hamberite catching up time with more shaved ice at icepik which was fitting for a scorching hot sunday afternoon. call me old school, i stuck with green tea flavour just like last time despite hundreds of other possible combination. i promised myself this is the last of the dessert pigging out for a while because there’s been too much of it lately and not doing me any good

day 668 – shaved ice

image

i never knew this place existed even though i unknowingly pass by it all the time. i heard the calling for late night dessert on saturday night at ice pik after a long brisk walk to earn extra calorie intake. trying some green tea shaved ice with mochi balls, grass jelly, lychee, mango bits all mixed together in a paper bowl. so glad this was shared between two cause it’s very filling and not exactly calorie friendly

day 595 – love from san fran

image

received my souvenir of matcha mochi and my signature shot glass from san francisco. i knew he would get me edibles just to make me feel bad for snacking instead of burning calories. he did try to ease the guilt by saying if it doesn’t have a nutritional label, assume the food is zero calories. i like how he thinks, but i don’t think my body reacts the same way. if i go by that rule, i guess i won’t feel too bad eating all of it
