a little throwback to last fall’s trip with my parents to hong kong and singapore. some days i can’t help but think about my relatives back home and pray that they’re okay in the midst of the chaos. good thing none of my relatives and friends are activists in all these rioting events. my parents would like to go back to visit family, but definitely have no interest in these conditions
instead of going into work, i stayed at home all day because i woke up with a headache, sore throat and the feeling that i’m fending off an oncoming cold. after calling in sick at 7am, i managed to sleep until past 1pm. sleeping fourteen hours is a really, really rare occasion since i usually get six or less. i logged a total of less than two thousand steps so my fitbit probably thought i was dying
my house now has a slave to do all the dirty work and keep the floors clean. i tested out the deebot in my room; it’s a little slow, but it does the work. it was fun just watching my slave go around bump into things and maneuver it’s way around obstacles. it’s permanently parked in my living room until further instructions are given. how long until someone invents robots automated to cook meals?
after hearing their countless trips to furniture stores all over lower mainland, glad my parents settled on a dining table they actually liked. they’re picky with how it looks and how it matches our house. i’d like to say i played a small role in the selection process. it matches the new kitchen cabinets we installed last year. the home improvement just keeps on coming; i wonder what is next on my parent’s list
practicing multitasking at dinner trying to chew, shop and watch game three of nba finals at the same time. mom was complaining the whole time to concentrate on only eating. this is one of the few times i’ve been able to sit down and watch the whole basketball game from start to finish. curry and thompson both struggled offsensely, but this warriors team has a deep bench. happy that golden state is one win away from taking the nba title, and happy that they’re denying lebron of his
i miss the gym, a lot, but i’m going to resist from going to the gym for at least two more days. i need the rest and my body needs to recover after such a crazy but fun-filled birthday week of festivities. when i step back into the gym, i want to be fresh and ready to begin my new program. let me relinquish the feeling of not being sore for forty more odd hours because once the grind starts, maybe i’ll only feel soreness. spent an evening catching up on my news feed and tvb drama
not much happened today, both at work and at home. felt sick with a stomachache so didn’t get to watch movie as planned. i was too weak so i took a nap, woke up when my parents came home with some takeout for me, then napped a bit more. i hope this case goes away by tomorrow because i have taekwondo and two hockey games lined up and would t be able to take on that much if i was still feeling weak and ill
