day 1761 – bmw museum

parents have landed on vancouver ground and are back home after their europe tour. my mom complained there was nothing good to eat in europe; i can imagine how much her asian taste buds missed asian food. they brought back many things including magnets, clothes, shoes, liquor chocolate and car exhibit items. they remembered to bring back a model z4 for me to bridge the gap while i currently can’t afford my dream car yet. i guess i can still have my z4 model to dream about. the model-sized z4 will turn into the real deal one day

day 1269 – hank

henrik makes headlines as he makes canucks history recording his one thousandth point all in a canucks jersey. i am jealous that my brother got tickets to the game and witnessed it live. it’s great to see him finally getting recognition because he’s such a quiet captain; i’m waiting for the day daniel makes the same mark because¬†the sedin twins comes in pairs afterall

after being out of town for four days surviving mainly on bread components, i was massively craving sushi and homecooking. i am just happy to be back in my regular routine doing mundane things, eating sushi, seeing my family and of course spending time with mo. just as he thought i only shopped for myself, i surprised him with a souvenir from portland outlet. it was a rough october with unproportional low ups to downs ratio; but more importantly i survived and look forward to a november to remember

happy to have a dear friend that’s so encouraging from the very beginning. even happier when he brought back an australian souvenir and said i fully earned it because i accomplished what i had set out to do. still have a long way to go but told myself that each and every time will only get better. i am going to keep this thermos in mint condition and let my tennis collection grow

day 595 – love from san fran

received my souvenir of matcha mochi and my signature shot glass from san francisco. i knew he would get me edibles just to make me feel bad for snacking instead of burning calories. he did try to ease the guilt by saying if it doesn’t have a nutritional label, assume the food is zero calories. i like how he thinks, but i don’t think my body reacts the same way. if i go by that rule, i guess i won’t feel too bad eating all of it
