day 1243 – family christmas

image

it’s another christmas dinner, this time a party with my family. everyone chipped in with at least a dish; mom provided the turkey with stuffing just like every year. there was also papaya soup, baked sole, avocado salad, salmon pinwheels, and ice wine. i’m blessed to have shared the many laughs on this special day with my loved ones and hope that everyone else did as well. finished off a wonderful christmas day watching a tokyo drift¬†with the company of mo. i couldn’t ask for a better way to spend the evening of christmas day

christmas day crept up so quickly. the holiday season is an amazing time to socialize, relax, shop, soak in the festive spirit, and most importantly spend time with people you love and cherish. i often wish there’s more opportunities to communicate with my family more. i try, but sometimes i just don’t try hard enough. this might be the season that matters most so i’m promise to try a little from here on. merry christmas and happy holidays to all

day 877 – christmas homecooking

enjoying a homemade dinner feast on christmas day. the food on the table shows my family has some proven chefs, and that’s not me, cause all i did was toss the salad. festive seasons like this reminds me that i am truly blessed with the people i am surrounded by, for all these people listen and help me through my many troubles and insecurities. but none more so, than those that share the tong genes, for they work tirelessly to guide me through no matter the situation. my life wouldn’t be the same without any one of you out there¬†and tis the season to reflect and be thankful for all that i have. let it be known that each and every one of you have a place in my heart

day 876 – eve workout

spending morning of my christmas eve at the gym banging out the reps because scheduled work never stops. it was a workout i needed to get in because it put me at ease and made me feel right. i felt particularly bad i lost track of time yesterday and didn’t make it into the gym like originally intended. a tiring session as usual and i’m exhausted leaving the gym, but it was definitely the energizer that sparks the rest of the day
