day 2038 – design brunch

we’re overdue for a group activity so we’re treated to a design brunch at comina. we took advantage of the nice day out and walked around steveston area and fisherman’s wharf before heading back to work. some bought plants, a few grabbed mini donuts, and many grabbed coffee during our ‘free’ time. sometimes a breath of fresh air relieves some stress and pulls us out of a things we shouldn’t be caught up with

day 2037 – pink shirt day

wearing pink pants to the office to support anti-bullying day. this is one of the few times i will voluntarily wear something so bright because it’s a movement closer to my heart. i’ve been bullied in parts of my childhood because i was small and timid. as a result, i would not look like i can defend or stand up for myself. i guess that explains why i keep things inside my heart and my mind, and that’s developed a shell designed to protect my myself from danger

day 1861 – bootcamp survivors

the group of survivors from the outdoor summer bootcamp repping our t-shirts. back at the beginning, attendance from the office was in the thirties; as the summer went on, it slowly trickled down to ten. even though i missed most of the last month’s sessions due to my injuries, i made an effort to be present for the last one. my shoulder still gives restricts me in all my activities. my circuits had to be modified and it so happens everything i could do into a leg day

day 1815 – designer faces

goofing around at the end of friday and taking a final picture with one that’s leaving us. so glad the work week is over because i had to swallow so much that i didn’t want to deal with. i left the office and headed straight for flipping. it turned out to be a very good class. i was urged to try an unspotted back tuck onto the blue mat – the first one on my own in years. somehow things felt right today; i made much more progress compared to all of last week and happily left the gym feeling accomplished. i’m a lot more comfortable with a few of the moves and a lot closer to landing it on the floor

day 1644 – bayside dineout


i was quite reluctant to join in on the dineout vancouver festival, but mom insisted on taking visiting relatives out to a special dinner. aside from the lone boring topic that bored me to death, the dineout menu was actually quite good. i especially liked my appetizer of ahi tuna with mango and avocado. it’s apparent i can never get tired of eating salmon. the striploin steak wasn’t bad but i couldn’t finish as usual but got help as usual. the eating as gone awry over the last few weeks and it has to stop immediately. i told myself after this meal, i’ll gear down and be much more disciplined with my eating 

day 1642 – baker wrap

can’t say it hasn’t been a great weekend out at the glacial baker retreat. the cabin crew at kardashians was awesome to chill and room with. it’s great to see everyone together since everyone brings something unique to the table and we collectively make so much happen. i learned that i’m much more suited for urban city than the wilderness, and that i wouldn’t survive in the woods because i can’t start a fire. through this retreat, bonds have strengthened and i definitely look forward to our next outing

day 864 – troublemakers

i liked our playoff bracket and our chances heading in. it wasn’t the results we were hoping for but nothing to hang our heads upon. some of us were battling a cold and some of us were gimped, and given the circumstances i’d say we tried our best. we had two good series, one hard fought series and another i’d like to take back. but even if we made it any further, i felt my elbow was done after the third series even though i had a kinesiologist tape me up. something is noticeably wrong with my hand but i don’t recall what exactly happened. keeping it loose during the pre game team huddle, i am still proud of how troublemakers handled the season finale today
