day 1530 – one for mom

celebrated mom’s birthday before parents head to the airport for yet another trip to hong kong. in front of them, i act like there’s no pain and everything is okay even though deep down it’s a completely different story. upon seeing them off, i closed the front door and tears immediately began to roll down my eyes. i couldn’t stop the down pour; the only way to dull my heart break way was to lay in bed. it hurts in every way and hard to accept that my life has changed drastically. i’m tired from all this i don’t know how i will handle this change to being practically disabled

day 711 – dental work

image

at the dentist office getting my regular cleaning done. i am not thrilled to be here spending my once in a blue moon saturday off. then headed to downtown for a little shopping with my mom at pacific centre to finish the rest of the afternoon. it’s been way too long since i last had a shopping spree with my mom and sad to report i spent way too much

day 710 – brown rice

image

not eaten brown rice sushi before but it certainly looks funky. i tried a piece of my mom’s avocado brown rice sushi and it doesn’t taste horrible but it loses the sense of eating sushi. i think i will stick with the conventional sushi, not that i am a fan of rice to begin with. having dinner with my mom instead of going to the gym because i am too sore to do anything else

day 651 – ramen fix

image

my first time at gyoza bar and had been meaning to try this place since its existence but never found a good excuse to do so. i couldn’t turn down an invite to dine with my mom so here i was sharing orders of chicken ramen, tofu salad and shrimp gyozas. the food lived up to its name gyoza bar because the shrimp gyozas was simply delicious. actually, everything on the table tasted pretty good, my mom even commented the waiter was pretty good looking too

day 394 – delish dinner

image

tonight’s dinner was absolutely delish, and expensive. in for a treat at miku’s with mom eating fine sushi on a friday evening to kick start a long weekend. yes, how rare is it that i get to eat dinner at normal dinner time on a friday. and yes, how often can i confidently say i have a weekend that i can actually catch up on life and rest like a normal human being

day 347 – make some spend lots

image

rare sunday afternoon off teaching which in the ideal world would be used for resting my sore and tired body. but i find myself at metro shopping with the best mom in the world. spending more than i make which can’t be good news for my plan to save up in the long run. i see the problem now, no wonder it’s not working

day 345 – a little foodporn

image

out with my mom for dinner satisfying my continuous craving for sushi. can’t have sushi without ordering the sampel of salmon sashimi, but more importantly featuring tentasu’s new special roll called tropical roll. first time trying fried banana in sushi and it made a good impression, but its probably not the best of healthy choices
