day 1730 – ramen fuel

chomping down ramen for fuel and fire after taekwondo do and before a night of dodgeball. there’s all the reason for my teammates to bet on me tonight, but i didn’t disappoint. i needed some dodgeball fix, not to mention i didn’t want to miss two weeks in a row. the showdown that i won today is quite the battle; one that i can stand tall with. i played relatively well tonight considering the circumstances i had to face. i just need to rectify that very little stands between me and sports. one thing to figure out how in the world i can better grip the ball; my grip will have to adapt to something else

day 1718 – stipulations 


after sitting down and punching the calculator for two hours, we finally settled the killarney payroll. the amount paid doesn’t justify the amount of time and effort i’ve put into crunching numbers. what a relief to finally reclaim our long lost paychecks from the last terms; i can finally say this isn’t volunteer work. friday the thirteenth isn’t so bad when it’s double pay day. also got to enjoy a good ramen lunch with some of my favourite coworkers 

day 1670 – morning run 

treadmill in the morning is something i’d only do for the sunrun. i felt better than a typical day despite running fasted. no surprise i grabbed a smoothie to replenish and on my way to teach. my typical saturday is basically run and gun until dinner time so my ramen with parents is well earned. i’m no marathon runner and i don’t see myself ever transforming into one, but i’ll put up with it for as long as i can. i signed up for this challenge, so i’m going to keep going because what i put in is what i’ll get out of it

day 1333 – saturday off

so this is what a saturday off feels like – no 7am alarm, doing my research, getting myself caught up with planning before an active stretching session. moving was difficult since i’m ultra sore from whatever i pushed my body to do yesterday, but i’ll take the soreness. hitting the spot with some ramen and some quality time with mo. i’m going to enjoy all twenty four hours of this because it’ll be a while before i can say that again 

day 694 – asian invasion

after taking care of the competition side of things with id pickup and weigh ins, the rest of the day was spent driving around town. montreal’s chinatown was very impressive, it was very clean with many eating options and street vendors that almost reminded me of china. we made our way to chinatown to satisfy our ramen and bubble tea craving. a red eye flight made me so tired, i was dozing off in the car starting mid day. calling it an early night cause it felt like i haven’t slept for two days

day 651 – ramen fix

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
