day 2497 – versa lite

my fitbit replacement arrived in the mail in the form of versa lite. originally considered selling it and buying one i liked a little more, but turns out i quite like it. i immediately got on the computer and ordered a few replacement bands and some tempered glass screen protector. the versa lite has a lot more options and customization than what the fitbit charge offered

day 2440 – grocery shop

the day time was designated to do all the grocery shopping with my mom. we dressed and equipped ourselves with masks and gloved before heading out to both superstore and t&t. the lineup going in wasn’t too bad, but we had to load up on the necessities and stock up our fridge and freezers for more than a week. i didn’t expect tofu to be completely sold out at superstore. we carted out around more than two hundred dollars worth of groceries from each store. the whole journey took over three hours, so long i didn’t even bother eating lunch

day 2130 – ghent city

made another day trip out of today, this time to the city of ghent. this city, similar to antwerp, also has a lot of canals and historical buildings. the rows of houses along the canal are quite photogenic. i enjoyed the scenic walk along the canal, but my feet and legs are really worn out after so many days of constant walking. we got back in town before dinner time and finished the last of belgium shopping. at this point i’m really starting to feel homesick, missing so much of what i have in vancouver

day 1927 – underpacked

i would say i’m all packed up and to get on this plane but by the time i reached the departure gates, i already had a strong feeling i had severely under packed with my lackluster effort. i clearly didn’t prioritize packing and had minimal time to do so in my schedule. the good thing is i’m heading to asia so i can still buy things as i go. maybe it’s not a bad idea to have reasons to shop for things

day 1886 – sophistication

i’ve joined the club of sophistication now that i’ve successfully bought some special matcha tea and become a member of david’s tea. becoming a matcha addict is quite the unique taste because matcha powder is so pricey and so hard to find. hopefully i can brew the perfect cup of matcha latte with proper frothing machine. if this goes well, i’ll be back for more

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 1352 – cylone

so many forgettable things happened this week that made me depressed, made me stress and made me cry. week long of insomnia failing to fall asleep or waking up quarter past three. am i ever happy to see a day where i will have to myself to detach myself from all the wrongs. first off, a stop at cyclones after work for skates moulding and sharpening; but really, i’m also playing around with all their products. i’m still waiting for the right sale to get my stick
