day 1232 – work work work

image

back into the office at half past seven ready to work. after tutoring and a long fulfilling workout, i’m finally back home half past nine for a quick bite before doing some graphics work. no easing back in on this super long day. i have yet to get around to housekeeping stuff, but at least i’m over the hump. even though we didn’t spend any time together today, we both recognize and value the importance of today

day 1202 – coffee shop

day 1171 – twosome

day 1141 – momentous

img-20190804-wa00003395891093379668373.jpgit wasn’t just an ordinary day even though we’re casually going through our own business. today marks another significant day, with many more anticipated. it’s been one crazy ride thus far; never want to get too comfortable so to keep each other on our toes. not everything will be seen eye to eye, but we always manage with a compromise. i’m just grateful to have been through so much, all that with him by my side, and hope it’s likewise

day 1008 – birthday girl

image

it’s my birthday today and there was no shortage of notifications. thankful to have so many people in my life who blew up my phone with messages, posts and all sorts of notifications. my parents taking me out to a dinner on my special day. heard many good things about fable kitchen and naturally wanted to try it for myself. it’s a relatively small restaurant and their portions are also very small. one of the rare times i was able to finish my own order, which means a normal person wouldn’t feel satiated. it all works in my favour because that leaves enough room for my birthday cake

day 897 – cake for dad

image

a vegan chocolate mousse cake for dad’s birthday this year. unfortunately much too sweet and too rich to his liking, but i’ll keep in mind to place a custom order next time. nonetheless it wasn’t just about the cake, it’s the company that makes all the difference. as we grow older, i realize what you do for the family cannot and will not always be observed. lots go unnoticed but you go about your business no matter the situation and that’s what makes you special

super big happy birthday shout out to my dad. a day of rejoice and celebration to the man who has done so much for me but never asked for anything in return. this special day belongs to you. wishing this year will garner some positive changes as well as bring us more joyous moments and crazy memories to carry forward. let it be known i cherish all the special moments and times we share, no matter what we do

day 277 – vdl birthday present

image

what a way to celebrate my birthday and cap off my birthday weekend being tier champs. it wasn’t just any other birthday like the past. they announce my special day during the announcements and i received hundreds of birthday wishes, never in my life have i felt so special. team and teamwork is the reason that brought us this championship. hoisting the hammer to pose for the team victory photo, it was a truly amazing feeling that also earned many bragging rights. props to all my teammates playing off each other and sticking to the game plan, couldn’t have done it without any one of you. first playoff tier champ win in my seasons of vdl, winning never felt any better. another year older, another year wiser, looking to make changes, improvements and just make more happen this coming year

day 274 – just me and you

a nice surprise pre birthday celebration at stanley park beach where the sky was dark and the stars were shining. sitting in front of the water and soaking in the moment was so calm and peaceful. thanks for being so thoughtful in planning this surprise and so considerate of my tight schedule. i loved the sparklers and the mini cartoon cakes. you really made it a special one to remember
