day 2171 – late comer

i arrived extremely late for civil war and it was almost like a gear up speed test to get onto the ice in time for the second shift. i was close to not going to hockey at all because i had been tied up with taekwondo and tired from an extra long shift of teaching. somehow, i got convinced and pressured to show up; better late than never. i had to book it home after our ice time because i’m expecting to wake up at 6am tomorrow

day 2129 – antwerp day

took the train early to another city and made an antwerp day trip. for the first couple hours, it was a lot of walking around looking at a combination of cathedrals, churches, canals and statues. just before rushing for the train back to brussels, we hit up the chocolate nation tour. it was a very neat place because there i learned about the origin of chocolate, its significance and differences, took a bunch of pretty pictures and even got a chance to taste test a few types. got back to brussels for a nice dinner out catching up with an ex-coworker. she took time to show us around the city and showed us that food trucks are where the best waffles are at

day 2069 – cake ceremony

rushed home to get the cake ceremony done otherwise my mom will be pissed that the cake is still sitting in the fridge. i didn’t really understand why we bought the cake so far in advance when it should technically be done on wednesday. the dessert didn’t fit too well in my diet though the mango mousse is not the only thing that’s wrecking my diet. time really does fly and we’re already until the fourth month of the year and it’ll be my birthday in a month’s time

day 1708 – bakery cakery


rushing out of the office like a mad woman trying to buy a cake on the day of my brother’s birthday. what i was going for was a mousse cake but none left so i stuck with chinese fruit cake. most of my family members doesn’t eat whip cream, but we’ll make do this time and make sure we order in advance the next time around. we may not talk much with both of us being workaholics and having such busy schedules, but i’ll still go the distance for him when necessary 

day 1274 – oversleeping

a big rush this morning because i snoozed my alarm and next thing i knew it was half an hour later. i zoomed into the washroom, got myself showered and out the door as fast as i could and arrived only thirteen minutes late. i had a headache the whole morning due to the abrupt awakening, but it got better in the afternoon. hump day is a good day to revisit my quote of the week as a reminder

day 670 – sketch model

i like cutting stuff and making models but today’s sketch tower model was almost a costly one. had a really close call as i nearly slit my finger while cutting carelessly fast rushing to finish. being too casual with the xacto knife almost to the point of carelessness. probably a good time thing to slow it down or take a break so not to cause anymore unnecessary damages

day 653 – point roberts

rushing off to point roberts to pick my ordered goods but bad timing to go past parallel 49 just when it’s a start to a long weekend. but i am glad i made it to friday, thought it would never come. and when i need something really bad, i make every possible arrangements to get it. good thing it wasn’t a 25 minute delay like the website said it was or else i wouldn’t make it back to richmond in time for class
