day 2403 – rooftop view

while it wasn’t raining, my dad and i climbed up to the rooftop to put a mesh on the chimney. hopefully this puts an end to the woodpeckers making all these annoying sounds all day long. i’ve never seem my street from three storeys up. it was fun and scary at the same time, not because i was scared of heights, but i was more concerned for my dad who sometimes overestimates his abilities. it’s amazing he can still climb and do all these dangerous things but i really wished he didn’t

day 2323 – gingerbread house

the gumball mansion we tried to build at the office contest didn’t work so it ended up being a regular gingerbread house. it was too messy and dirty for my liking, definitely not something i would like to do often. nonetheless it was a fun short-lived hour that let me relive some of the childhood moments. i hope to find more of these joyous moments over the holiday season

day 1987 – hotpotting

had a bunch of friends crash my house for hotpot because they heard i have the whole house all to myself this week. i don’t normally get a chance to host any parties simply cause i don’t have my own place. it’s my first hotpot of the cold wintery days. i’m so full from stuffing down all the food including beef, pork, assorted meat balls, fish tofu, mushrooms, daikon, and veggies. there’s a lot of cleaning up to do after stuffing our faces but fortunately there was a dishwasher within the group

day 1809 – home decor

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

day 239 – what i call home

almost forgot how bland and unoriginal my house used to look before painting the exterior to purple two summers ago. once upon a time, my house was pink just like thousands of other houses across vancouver, but now its the best looking house!! the dark purple now really spices up everything
