day 1487 Рmcmenamins 

doing the six hour drive down to portland, not for competition, is a first. it seems like forever since i last had two consecutive days off, as i try to leave work behind for the next four days. a four day vacation begins with a stop at pike place market before hitting up the hipster city of portland. of all the times i made the journey south, i’ve never heard or visited the many mcmenamins that are situated all around oregon

day 845 – gate six

it’s chilly but it’s not raining, so why not enjoy a sunday stroll from hipster land to downtown. as long as i am dressed appropriately for this weather, i would be glad to be out making this trek. somewhere in between we stopped for vegetarian food at a hipster restaurant, canucks store at rogers arena, coffee at blenz and vegan gelato in false creek. my first time trying out vegetarian and vegan food; i actually don’t quite mind it at all and debating if i should give converting a try. i really wished my gyms closed later on weekends because i didn’t make it in before it closed

day 516 – nearing the end

fifth and probably second last luxurious dine out feast of this christmas holidays, what a sigh of relief. first time here and now i have been introduced to another good sushi place in vancouver. both the food and service were good, similar to that of the eatery out in westside. it is highly likely i will come back for more sushi soon enough. still need to eat responsibly and watch what i put into my mouth

day 312 – new shades

image

a rare sunday afternoon off so i had a chance to squeeze in some shopping. feeling really excited because i finally found a pair of shades i have been wanting for a while. also bought a few more items and spent more than i really should. my wallet probably doesn’t appreciate that burden and would much rather i be at work. just be happy that i don’t get to go all out shopping everyday
