day 2101 – celebrating my existence

the celebration of my birth with my family comes a day before because my parents are flying out for vacation. i couldn’t decide on a japanese restaurant, so settled with dai jung kum instead. we enjoyed a good dinner together completed with a combo with no shortage of food on the table – barbecue meat, seafood pancake, dumplings, soup and side dishes. i enjoyed the dinner very much, not because of the delicious food, but the opportunity to sit down and share it with my family. my birthday would never be complete unless i can spend some quality time with my loved ones that would never leave me behind

day 1340 – civil war

i’m stoked to hit the ice again as the war between friends, the civil war, kicks off tonight. the feeling of a pro when i arrive at the rink and my number 10 jersey is already hanging in the rabbits locker room. the self printed jersey is a nice touch. i’m told that i’m starting on the noob line but i’m in the running for that spot in the regular line. it goes to show that what i work for doesn’t go unnoticed. just keep working at it and improving my game every time; if that opportunity comes, i’m taking it

day 1262 – tofu fanatic

the whole family gathered to celebrate my dad’s birthday. there were many dishes on the table just like any typical chinese seafood restaurant, but this was by far my favourite dish. i enjoyed a good sit down meal with my family, we haven’t had much opportunity to engage like tonight. thankful i made it to friday. this week has been brutal as i had wavering moments and tons on my mind. it’s not resolved, but i’m holding it together

day 796 – slow moving

feels like a perfect sunday wasted. the sun is shining for once and all i did was teach in the morning and attend a marcom meeting in the afternoon. opted to skip out on gym as planned¬†and not actively enjoying the rare sunshine we will hardly get in next few months. i hope the lethargic feeling goes away soon cause i can’t afford to be an antisocial couch potato

day 473 – in the ring

image

this sunday is funday at taekwondo. back in the ring in full gear second time in three days, getting my chance to fight during a colour belt test. haven’t fought these matches with colour belts in a long time and wouldn’t mind having more of this. it was fun, felt more relaxed and calm fighting and being in control of these matches and getting extra practice seeing the game in a bigger picture, working on other aspects of my skills¬†and playing a more strategic game

day 294 – feeling good

it’s official in black and white. very happy to announce this place is what i will be calling home for the foreseeable future. wonder if this will be a life changing experience and a place where i will kick start what i have been hoping and waiting for. hopefully this will be the beginning of a path that leads me to bigger and better things
