day 2073 – pearl fever

i got my bubble tea reward for the twenty back tuck challenge. the perfect reward to end a frustrating and stressful work week that made me want to walk out. i didn’t have any appetite even though i was hungry. i’m glad i didn’t go straight home and instead hung out with my friends to wind up the friday night because that lightened my mood. this would be my first milk tea from the highly touted pearl fever and it didn’t disappoint. the thirty percent sweet was perfect and just how i like it even though my friend who bought it didn’t think so

day 1965 – star performer

i must say getting a star performer plaque for the year was the pleasant surprise. it has been a crazy stressful year. many days i just go about my business and work my butt to make all the deadlines. it’s good to know that the hardwork and dedication to hold this fort down didn’t go unnoticed. and this year i showed up to harrison to represent the design tech team

day 1564 – warehouse sale

happily shopping for shoes to reward myself for a job well done. went shoe frenzy and tried on many to find the one that i couldn’t go wrong with. in the past i’ve neglected my own well-being and overlooked many of my desires because i was made to not feel important. i learn to grow, i learn to be stronger, and more importantly i learn to live to be treated the way it should be. over the next little while i will change up my priorities to be sure i put myself as one

day 1555 – team outing


design team is rewarded a team bonding event for what we’ve been able to pull together even when under staffed. we chose to make a trip down to tsawwassen mills for some adventure, food and bowling. just a fun event outside of work setting where we could all just be friends. contemplated if i should have bowled, even though bowling only requires one hand. i did it anyway because i’ve had enough of sitting on the sideline. i just had to be super careful so not to have any unnecessary setback

hungry executives celebrating the completion of season 18 at water kitchen in gastown. vdl’s human resources surprised us all with christmas presents, as each of us was rewarded with a pair of the newest vdl apparel personalized with our own initials. must admit i am relieved that we are at the season’s end because this season has been really stressful balancing out all my commitments and tasks, i really need the extra time just to get away from my neverending commitments

day 305 – closing vdl season

pigging out with fellow execs at river rock buffet to close off a successful dodgeball season. a good opportunity to reward ourselves with the hard work everyone has put in throughout the season to make it as fun and as painless as it could be. total fail making a way to ginormous ice cream for myself, completely forgetting there’s a twist option in the centre between chocolate and vanilla

day 237 – marcom meeting

we gathered as part of our reward for a hardworking marcom department. a meeting and mid season social was called for at kyo where we overloaded with sashimi, sushi and bbq meat to our hearts content. i think i need to fast after this meal because the endless eating isn’t doing me any good. it is safe to say i will be avoiding all you can eat meals of any kind for a while
