day 2508 – picnic dinner

last minute changes to co-worker’s birthday because dine in wasn’t really available. fortunately, the weather changed for the better so we could order takeout and have a picnic dinner. seeing my coworkers after months of separation is pretty heart warming. we had an enjoyable time catching up with lots of laughs. was planning to just chill, but ended up tossing a frisbee around, hid from big dogs and did a flip. i miss seeing their faces at the office and chatting on teams to get through the work day together

day 2451 – skytrain stroll

saturday evening social distancing stroll has become a regular thing when covid is in effect. i’m so glad the weather has been good to us so we could spend time outdoors. i for one would go insane if i was trapped indoors with no activity. we walked one skytrain station and back which turned out to be a lengthy forty five minute walk. we walked at a leisurely pace, but somehow my bad knee was in some discomfort by the end

day 2420 – park time

thankful for the kinds of connections i’ve developed during my time at hospitality designs. in times like this, i know i could lean on some and make it through okay. we’ve developed a bond that made me realize we’re each other’s reasons to go to work for. we talk about our goals, plans, and struggles, and keep each other accountable while striving for those milestones. work would never have been the same without these special bonds. i hope this continues and we’ll continue to be there through thick and thin

day 2339 – burnaby museum

gave up on aurora winter festival for burnaby heritage museum because the admissions didn’t make it appealing. i went in with little expectations considering it’s free admissions. there were a bunch of picture worthy backgrounds. it was drizzly but the weather cooperated for the most part. we took the pictures and left for some bubble tea. i finished off the night with a few late night episodes of prince of tennis

day 2275 – blackout matcha

can’t say i didn’t see the office power outage coming after having the many wind warnings. sure enough the power went out in the afternoon and the big boss sent everyone out early. since flightclub also experienced the blackout, i had a different kind of friday; i hungout at richmond centre, had matcha at tsujiri, hit up the gym for some spontaneous snatches and then went for a dumpling dinner. the long matcha craving was finally met

day 2263 – photography walk

caught up with a friend and went outside to enjoy what may be the last sunshine of this year. it was a productive yet adventurous photography walk through olympic village and mount pleasant. we stopped to take pictures of many art structures and murals. a little disappointed we didn’t get any beta5 puffs before they sold out, but earnest is nothing to be disappointed about either. taking advantage of open gym because i can afford to have a late night

day 2155 – sechelting

as canada day long weekend approaches, i’m thinking back to the easter long weekend when the squirtle squad went to sechelt for a couple days. we didn’t do anything out of the ordinary, and we didn’t need to because being with each other was what it was all about. i hope we’ll plan another team outing very soon because i miss these faces after not having seen them since i left for my eurotrip. there’s so many activities i’m still itching to try

day 2153 – nintendo switch

a cozy night staying in playing nintendo switch and eating sushi. just a small get together to celebrate an ex-coworker’s birthday. also a good time to catch up and digress a little on the things that’s been happening around. after i got a few things off my chest, we changed the mood with some games. i rarely get to play video games, but it’s no surprise i got creamed in every game we played. we had good laughs all around and that’s all it matters

day 2112 – adventure plex

our gstrings midseason bonder became a season end bonder. the trampoline is a different beast because it gives so much more height and has so much recoil. it definitely took some time adjusting and controlling the front flips and back flips. we also tried the ninja courses, rock climbing walls, dodgeball and free run area. i stayed away from bubble soccer and only did back flips there. we were all so pooped when our two hours were up. i want to come back for more flips, and hopefully next time my ankles will be okay to let me try things like roundoff back flip

day 2108 – k fever

finally got my antibiotics even though i’m sure it hasn’t kicked in yet. wasn’t sure if i was up for late night karaoke but went anyways because i wasn’t about to be called out on bailing again. i generally don’t like the mic in my hands so i’m glad some of the guys like holding onto it. i am content jamming without the mic. i didn’t know any of the rap songs, but i was happy to just listen in. i was feeling quite fatigued by the end and was so ready to pass out the minute i got home
