day 2070 – tsujiri extravaganza

i said i’d treat myself to tsujiri once i land my roundoff backtuck which i did. it’s finally my turn to try out the hyped tsujiri matcha dessert. the rumoured lineup is real and if you don’t go in the middle of the day for the opening rush, there’s no chance of getting their cakes. can’t believe there’s so much hype for this place even after a month of its grand opening. the foodies i went with got multiple cakes and drinks, but i settled with a matcha cake

day 2064 – wings wednesday

grabbing late night wings at shark club because the rest of the gang was craving chicken. i can only finish one pound of wings which constitutes ten wings. i went with honey garlic and an arnold palmer to go with it. it tasted so good for my stomach, but not so much for my diet. i have a feeling i’m going to call in tomorrow because i’ve had enough of the bullshit that i don’t give anymore

2042 – killarney kids

this is the end of our poomsae training sessions before saturday’s bc championship. this is one of the largest killarney team we’ll have at a provincial competition. through the past several weeks of training, they’ve work really hard and improved a lot. i want to keep growing killarney’s competition team and create the comradery that we’ve never had before. hopefully this will lead to something good like taking some of them to bigger stages

day 2021 – car scrapes

it was cold and snowy morning, but made it into the office with my mom’s rav4. i was surprised management let us off early since i’m at a company that forced me to risk going into the office to work even with a broken hand. i didn’t leave early since i had every intention to go flip. the conditions going home from richmond was not good at all. there up a bus and truck stuck on the off ramp of knight bridge which caused traffic to be backed up i’ll have to make a judgment call for work when i wake up tomorrow morning. winter has official arrived in vancouver

day 1949 – squirtle bonder

we as a team randomly decided to take a ceramic workshop as part of our mid season bonder. most of the people made squirtle cups in some sort of mug form. i had other ideas of a squirtle cup and wanted one in the shape of a stanley cup. i spent so much time moulding and didn’t get a chance to add any paint to it. it was so much fun getting our hands dirty and talking smack at each other. we will have to wait until the baking is complete to compare the turnout and see who has bragging rights

day 1901 – attempt practice

a failed attempt to practice after sunday poomsae training. intended to have some extra practice after all the kids left, but didn’t get much done and ended up going off on some discussions. i think i’m going to try to set some time aside to get some extra practice in for myself; testing to see if i can get myself back into it. in need to set some goals for myself with some deadlines

day 1757 – coaching face

i laughed a little when a parent emailed me this picture that he captured while i was teaching. i guess my face said it all; i shall not show satisfaction for as long as i can ask for more. i’d be the first to admit i’m not an easy instructor to please because i’ll always be asking more of my students. overall, the progress they’ve shown through the training is telling. teaching aside, there’s a lot to ponder on in the next little while. so much up in the air that puts everything on the line. it’s a pretty big decision i cannot rush, but it’s a decision only i can make
