day 1505 – venturesome 

hustling hard everyday just to fulfill vancouver’s living standards. trying to hustle harder to hunt down my future unit in the rising economy. at the end of each long work intensive day, i tell myself i’m going to get rewarded in the end – somehow, someway. in the meantime, the little periodic getaways are the highlights i look forward to; well earned time off to relax. i will be back for more adventures after visiting places i’ve always wanted to visit. one day, i’ll get the hawaiian or beachy trip that i’ve always wanted

day 1443 – work is work 

it’s good friday so i don’t have to be at the office; why not work some more in my home office on a day that i’m off. at home is the time to relax, but cranking up the productivity cleaning my room, looking at spreadsheets, crunching numbers, finishing my graphics, and even getting most of my taxes done. it’s a good thing i finish these tasks before heading out of town

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 1280 – malay meal

happy to have our busy schedules meet so we can spend some evening time together. we work hard during the day and hangout and relax in the evening. molested the lime wedge before i dug into my shrimp tomato pad thai. i may look like a pig with the two big dishes in front of me, but rest assure i didn’t have all that. i did however keep it to a bare minimal to save my quota for tonight’s malaysian meal 

day 1257 – power skating

sleeping in on sunday is a first since i no longer have to teach killarney. instead, i went for a morning workout and my very first class of power skating lesson in the afternoon. i’m there to learn techniques that can give my game an extra boost to improve even quicker. i felt the pressure to keep up with the faster group, but it’s good cause i need that challenge. this is how sundays should be, a relaxing day doing things together

day 1196 – second midterm

cramming in more studying and ready to ace that second midterm. i didn’t do as much studying as i would have liked because i had problems focusing, but i had a pretty good feeling as i handed in the test. now i can kick back at home and enjoy my down time. it’s not that late but the sky may say otherwise; must get used to it because it’ll get dark early for the next couple months

day 1183 – lucky money

got my good luck red pocket money, one from my parents and one from the grandmaster. i’m all packed up for a good weekend in oregon. i’ll be there to scout and chill with my teammates for first two days, then my competition begins on saturday. i’ll also take this time off as a break from everything, relax and enjoy the moment. it was difficult trying to fit all my stuff into one duffel and backpack. now time for a red-eye drive down to portland
