day 1754 – movie marathon

i did absolutely nothing today except eat dumplings to go with my movie marathon. i need days like this when i could sleep in with no alarm clock waking me up at 6:05, no rush from work to games nor commitments. i even chose not to hit the gym because my body told me it needs the rest it deserves. this year the brand new phenomenon i’ve learnt is occasionally listening to my body instead of my always go go go reponse

day 1713 – pallets

at a family sushi lunch and the topic of vacations was the main discussion. we discussed where we would go to link with our hong kong trip, and of course korea is up there on my list. after some raw fish fix, it was time to get down to do some work. it is indeed another homeworking sunday and another coffee shop hopping opportunity. this me, my work and a matcha latte to get through some work. it’s probably for the better since we’re being rained in

day 1699 – matchsticks 

a totally different kind of sunday where i didn’t wake up early and didn’t break a sweat. a change of setting and spending the better part of my afternoon sipping on cappuccino and working on my homework. yesterday was my hat trick day in sports, today is recovery day. many body parts ached and my legs didn’t want to move; it took a lot to get off my bed this morning. this day is a good opportunity to get some work done and keep moving along with things i ought to do for myself

day 1692 – indian wells

the amount of output yesterday got me and my body good so i decided it was a sunday worth letting my body recover a little. so many body parts are currently quite shattered so taking time off for one or maybe two days isn’t too much to ask for. even if i forced it, i would only be half assing my designated heavy leg day. instead, i spent like how most people treat sundays, relaxing and watching indian wells finals. i’m very disappointed federer lost the match, but he just wasn’t on his game from the beginning

day 1635 – canucks ice


this is an extraordinary experience being able to skate on the sheet on ice that the canucks play on. third straight day lacing up my skates to skate on arguably the best surface in vancouver. i really can’t turn down any chance to attend canucks members exclusive events like such. i came for the skating experience, but i got more than that; the bench, the hall and locker room were all available for roaming. fin was also on hand so i got a chance to take a goofy photo. two straight sundays where i didn’t even bother setting an alarm because i definitely earned the sleep in

day 1579 – sunday workday

it started off having a laid back sunday morning before getting into work. good that i don’t have a 7:30am start on sunday as well so i could sleep in a little after a late night of partying. had no urgency to sleep after a night like this, but once in a while is okay. worked another blackbelt test and the rest of my time spent completing a bunch of modules. banking these extra hours hopefully to pay off and gets accredited for in the future

day 1411 – bone buldge

the bruising on this left foot is looking worse than hours before. i couldn’t put on skates today but that wouldn’t have mattered anyway as i’m way too sore from too much activities yesterday. maximal soreness results in minimal movements; my back ached, my calves tight, my hip flexor restricting, my foot and shin bruised and my si joint problems still persist. the soreness isn’t a big issue, it’s the persisting joint pain and abnormal bruising that worries me
