day 2513 – national sushi day

the letdown was real when i had to skip my apex session and tricking class because my knee is in terribly rough shape. the only salvaging factor was my friends coming over for a garage lifting session. wasn’t expecting to do a whole lot without my legs under me, but turns out i untapped new territory benching ninety pounds for five reps without relying on my spot. the sushi for lunch afterwards made me feel a little better even though nothing will really make up for what i have to sacrifice

day 2443 – taro tapioca

lunch time has really been skewed since quarantine started. instant noodles paired with bubble tea after friday morning sprint squad training. looked forward to this onezo milk tea and earned it the right way after a week long training. though i really wished i could sprint all the laps with the rest of the squad, my shin is really giving me trouble. hopefully i can get back to that next week; i don’t want to get left behind in the fitness

day 2375 – dim sum fortune

sunday afternoon dimsum had a surprise appearance from the chinese money man. he came into the restaurant and handed out red pockets to everyone. it was a gesture more than anything because the red pockets only had a candy. after dimsum, i relaxed at home before going to open gym where i finally got a chance to work on cartwheel flash. i hit my head onto the mat multiple times, but i think i needed to know how it feels like

day 2273 – time out chair

millie on the time out chair because she was being a bad dog. she normally annoys me by during hovering over me as i’m eating lunch and just getting way too close to my liking. today she was a little more extra, growling at everything and everyone for no reason. we decided she needed to be isolated on a high chair to teach her a lesson because she can’t jump off by herself

day 2265 – bad millie

the most difficult thing after a three day weekend is waking up for work the tuesday back. 6am rolled around way too soon and the sky was still pitch black. just trying to eat my lunch and millie got way too close to my liking. she knows i dislike her, yet she tries to pounce on my leg. i feel like the more i she knows i dislike her, the more she tries to get close to me and get my attention. maybe i’m the only one i the office that has yet to hold, feed or pet her

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

img_20200130_2122476926797506902160280.jpgwe 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
