day 989 – date night

image

a nice sumptuous dinner and night out in the neighbourhood for reaching our first little milestone together. having connections really does help; hooked ourselves up with some good fusion tapas at torafuku. the restaurant is not located in a prominent area, the decor does not wow anyone with its interior, but eaters are drawn to focus on the flavour and essence of the food. it’s been one heck of a month and i only look forward to all the times we’ll share and all the memories we’ll create

day 878 – vandusen fun

image
a day removed from christmas but the festivities doesn’t stop. did most of my boxing day shopping online so needn’t fight with the crowds and potentially angry mobs. it was so nice to get out and finally check out vandusen garden festival of lights. the weather cooperated with us for the most part, can’t complain about the little drizzle and wet flurries.  i thought i was dressed well and prepared for the cold, but somehow my limbs still felt frozen. still had a great time, the freezing was worth it

day 817 – return of parents

image

that was a quick two weeks, my parents are back in town after their annual hong kong visit. sounds like they had a good relaxing trip and that all relatives are doing well. hearing stories of the happenings and that my grandparents still act the way they do – like a five year olds. it’s great that they’re back to take care of my day to day needs again, but i am losing the unlimited freedom and going back to normal routines. man, it’s a slow day and i am still feeling the effects of yesterday night’s epicness

day 771 – tennis fever

image

the plan for tonight was only to hit for roughly an hour and a half, but ended up going all out for three. so instead of a late dinner like i had initially told my mom, it ended up late night snacking at 10:30pm. started off mellow and hitting lightly, then round two heated up and everyone began ripping the ball like they wanted to take each other’s heads off. felt so good to let my swing loose, but my good knee didn’t feel so good halfway through, hope it will feel better tomorrow after a night of icing with frozen peas

day 574 – pink it forward

image

pink is the name of the game on antibullying day. tonight i made a detour to pass by the five sails because it was lit up pink. it was cold, so as long as you are bundled up, walking along the seawall at night is very nice and calming. the refractions of colours in the water sums up the stillness of the night. i am sure it’s more beautiful in the spring and summer time
