day 1880 – test drives

did some expensive window shopping this afternoon browsing around the audi showroom. though i didn’t get a chance to test drive the r8, i did get the opportunity to sit inside and imagine the thrill. i then took a a4 out for a short spin and that’s more along the line of what i can afford. as much as i’d like to own an r8, it’s a little out of my price range at this moment. one day, just one day, i’ll be able to afford a dream car of my choice

day 1876 – tea steeper

steeping a white tea after lunch to avoid falling asleep from the common after lunch syndrome. been really strict and conscious of what my intake is. the progress in the short time i’ve started has been really promising. it hasn’t been easy and takes a lot of discipline to stick with it, but i’m feeling pumped and determined to keep it going strong. it’s only phase one, but it’s a great start and i’m sure excited to see what the pay off will be

day 1865 – cafe de l’orangerie

trying out a new restaurant i found tucked at the corner of hudson. it’s a little neat japanese runned cafe serving fusion, dessert, coffee and some alcoholics. i had a shared tuna gomae to go with my chicken tomato spaghetti. portions were quite big and as usual i couldn’t finish my meal and packed it to go. eating lots before i start my cut; i’ll cherish it while i can

day 1857 – glassware

drying out all my glassware at work before i take off for the long weekend. the number of glass containers and mason jars i own have tripled. this is all kind of influenced by one of my zero waste enthusiast friend. you can say this week has been slow, but at the same time fast. manager wasn’t in this week, but that means i have to make some decisions without the presence of him. gladly looking forward to a long weekend off to chill, rest, party and quite possibly drink a lot

day 1814 – potato wedges

a great win for the team as we strung together six solid innings to win by seven. timely defensive plays helped keep everyone in the game including my first time ever gunning out someone at home plate. spontaneity got the better part of me today as i was driving home after my game. it wasn’t great but wasn’t bad either and i wished i saved my quota for good poutinery found in downtown. i didn’t finish the whole thing but at least i can say i’ve tasted the timmy’s poutine

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 

day 1800 – canucks showdown 

saw so many familiar faces watching the canucks prospects summer showdown. there’s a few highly touted prospects i’m really excited to see and hopefully one or two of them will make the big club next year. i enjoyed the format of the event cause i got to watch them in five on five, four on four, three or three and even shootout. the carve burger was okay, but there was no nutritional value. i guess going with the poke bowl would have given me some preferred veggies
