day 1007 – duo birthday

image

celebrating our birthdays together with fine dining up at seasons in the park. the patio view looking at downtown coupled with the delicacy made it very enjoyable. then mo pulled a few strings and surprised me with a mousse birthday cake. i must admit he caught me off guard but made the evening that much more incredible. i must stay alert and can never be too comfortable because he’ll throw a curveball at me when i least expect it. the night would have been near perfect if it weren’t for the brief drizzle; but we improvised with a plan b. it was a very special night and i couldn’t have asked for a better way to celebrate our birthdays

day 1000 – big millennial

image

sitting across from me this evening is this fine looking who always makes me feel at ease. we can never get tired spending our down time together going for our lazy walks and finding our random adventures. we both have a very busy schedule, but we make all our time together count. making first appearance on my blog’s milestone 1000th day post is truly special. to be honest, hitting the millenium mark is very self satisfying. it’s been a great ride; let’s keep blogging it together through our various adventures towards many more milestones

day 958 – park job

image

finding a parking spot along this busy street is hard, parking in one could also be very challenging. but with good coordination with adjacent car, anything is possible. you know it’s a special someone when what we did together didn’t matter and the length of meeting also didn’t matter; just having their presence made it worthwhile. it was that kind of night where being together and sharing the same space is all that mattered

day 854 – hotspot for hotpot

turning another page of the calendar, to a month i don’t want to welcome. i knew way back that this day was going to arrive, but i was in denial all along. i was scared because every waking second is ticking away and inching closer to your inevitable leaving. every now and then i wish time would slow down just so it can prolong the time we have left together. i really do feel special that we get some alone time to have dinner out in the handful of days you have remaining. know that it’s a rare occasion to expand my unchartered food territory cause i only do this for you

day 800 – birthday mom

image

celebrating one of the many special days of the year, but the person i celebrate it for and with doesn’t get any more important. happy birthday to my dearest mom, who works tirelessly to make each and every one of my day as smooth as it could be. a lot of times i overlook the little expressions and actions that could go a long way to making you realize how much you mean to me. do know that i appreciate every little thing you do for me and every moment spent together is quality time i cherish. and sometimes i just fail to express how i love you so. here’s to another great year ahead and many more to come. perfect way to make it my blog’s 800th day post. i have had a lot of pleasure writing all my posts and revisiting my posts to see where i have been and where i have come

day 564 – feel special

i came home to find this sitting on my kitchen table with my name on the card. a special delivery but both the gift and card are anonymous. it was a long day, but coming home to see this made the fatigue less intrusive and my evening a little more soothing. thanks to the wonderful person for brightening my day with a thoughtful message and lovely flowers, happy valentines day

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
