day 2176 – uneaten lunches

uneaten lunches piling up because this week has been a little busy. my monday lunch is still uneaten in the office fridge because of onboarding lunch, first aid lunch meetings. both lunch boxes had things i wanted to eat so i shared the lunches with coworker and skipped the overlaps. if i start getting a stomachache in the afternoon, i’ll definitely blame the old leftover lunch

day 2100 – dual birthdays

we haven’t gone out for lunch in a while but may birthdays gives us an excuse to do so. we went to steveston ora sushi for some bentos. we don’t see each other as much ever since we split buildings. the lunch hangout was brief, but it still hit the spot. and so the birthday meals begins and goes through until sunday. as expected, i may be sick of food by the end of this weekend

day 2018 – lunar lunch

organized a late lunar new year lunch for the asians in the office. what was suppose to be a foursome expanded to a group of eleven. the three of us girls shared a salad, sashimi and two rolls. it’s good to have variety otherwise i’d only be limited to eating sashimi and a roll. didn’t feel like going back to work after eating. it. i hope the snow doesn’t stick so i can drive to delta for my game later in the evening

day 1933 – dim some

landed in hong kong and why was i not shocked to be greeted by relatives with some dimsum. it’s great to see my relatives, but when they take charge of ordering, it always seem to have too much food on the table. either they think we don’t have adequate dimsum in vancouver or we eat a lot, which neither is the case. i must have some portion control during this week bombarded with family meals. i sure hope i don’t go overweight by the time this asia trip is over

day 1806 – westcoast poke

it’s been months of hearing everyone rave about these poke bowls and now i jump on the freight train. went out to ironwood during lunch time to give westcoast a try. i built a bowl with a mixture of atlantic salmon and albacore tuna with spicy yuzu siracha and wasabi aioli. the siracha sauce had an interesting taste, the good kind of interesting. every time i drive by the westcoast poke, the little shop is packed with lineup out the door. these bowls are really good and refreshing, but they charge way more than how much it cost to make these. i’d get these more often if it was only less expensive 

day 1775 – maple roll

having one of my favourite speciality roll, the maple roll, with my parents. the maple roll has a new look with the pink bonito flakes. my body is way overloaded with recent amount of sports and games and what a rare moment it is to hold myself back from workouts and games. i stayed home to catch up on all chores and tasks that were lagging behind like fixing my taekwondo bag after delaying for several months. my goal setting also needed some amendments to align with what i choose as priorities

day 1736 – appas and dongsaeng

and so the birthday celebration begins. taken out to lunch by colleague for shared birthday meal with an appa. the two appas and two dongsaengs gotten close because we’re late eating buddies. the four of us going all the way out to mr black for long lunch; i’ll probably end up working through tomorrow’s lunch. their menu features much fried katsu of all meats, but going out of my norm is acceptable once in a while. the decor was nice and food was decent, but kind of pricey if everything was regular priced. it was quite evident that traffic wasn’t very high at all
