day 1454 – lonely corner

the cage may be full, but the squat rack on the other side of the gym wasn’t. besides being in the stuffy side, it’s not so bad here. in fact, i kind of like being alone in this lonely corner where i can be me. i must admit i felt the heaviness after enduring the past couple days. my back and hip is feeling funky; must have been the jolt from yesterday’s game. what’s on my glute doesn’t seem like it’s just a normal bruise. had to cut workout short before i do some extra damage to myself. it was nice to walk the park with good old buddy just to catch up and unload

day 1156 – starbucks calling

image

getting more work done with starbucks in my hand. productivity keeps rising – completed more graphics work, finished some logs, placed my order, downloaded my material, did my research and continued with my templates. kept myself as busy as i could; i’m two episodes behind in my drama. when the gym is calling but still off limits is a lonely feeling i’ll never get used to and never want to get used to

day 1069 – physio bound

image

after some debating, i finally caved and admitted that my back needed medical attention; i was overdue for my physio checkup anyways. that also means it’s a lonely unconventional monday of no training, no dodgeball and no other physical activities for me today other than physio. at least he put my pieces back into its proper place and all should be back up and running in no time

solo series [day two]

after a thirteen hour flight, i have safely landed at hong kong airport. during the long flight, i napped, ate, wrote and watched movies; i only got up twice to use the washroom. my back and legs are extremely stiff and i seriously couldn’t help but to miss the gym already

my parents flew in earlier last week. however, i was a surprise visitor; no one knew i was going to make an appearance. when i rang my grandma’s doorbell, she was so stunned she was at a loss of words. she reminds me i haven’t been back to visit since 2013? i am always amazed at her memory; hard to imagine a ninety year old has a better memory than me. thankfully it’s not as hot as i expected it to be for this time of the year, but i heard it was pretty hot and humid a few days ago

of course gym is not the only thing i miss back in vancouver. i already miss mo dearly. i always glance at my watch wondering how he’s doing and what he is up to. i hope he’s working hard back home and catching up with people he hasn’t seen for a while

although i slept on the plane, going through so many flights and the troubles of getting on and off them has been taxing. i really wanted to wait until mo was awake before i head to bed but my head and eyes were hurting. it was time to call it a day

day 1021 – yvr much

image

i am very happy mo was able to send me off at the airport today, but saying goodbye was super difficult. it was much harder than the last because instead of leaving for three days, i will be without him for twelve days. it was brief stay in vancouver between calgary and hong kong, but we made every day count. the next twelve days will feel so different without his presence. we are separated by many time zones, but we’ll still do our best to have our video chats. i always look forward to reading his messages and seeing his selfies

day 90 – me, myself and i

image

since i have lost my voice completely, i will be in a quiet world of my own. seeing my family doctor didn’t help at all, she said i should not talk for next three to four days, not even whisper. made teaching a challenge not to mention teaching a group of students a┬ánew technique an entirely unique experience
