day 1421 – solstice begins

on days like this being stuck indoor away from windows isn’t ideal. the weather looks to be good for the rest of the week with the start of summer season. temperature is on the rise and it’s just one of the reasons summer is my favourite, for it brings sunshine to my life. all the fun summer activities awaits. maybe this will brighten my mood and bring me to a better place

day 1018 – touring calgary

image

after our run at this year’s nationals, we are wandering the streets of downtown calgary. we saw snow and rain in the first three days in calgary, but glad our fourth day was a warm and sunny one. this trip was been leg intensive as if we didn’t spend enough time walking and standing on our feet at the championship, we decided to do more of that. spark science centre, calgary tower, chinatown, stephens avenue and the core shopping mall were amongst the many places we visited. it was a good trip with teambonding time, but we’re all burnt out. i was ready to head home to see mo, but it won’t be long before i fly off again

day 887 – city snow

image

i look outside the window this morning to see vancity managed to have snow sticking to the ground. i am almost surprised it didn’t happen earlier with the temperatures being consistently low, it was only a matter of time. and since my parents were out of town, i had no problem getting around driving with their vehicle. i can’t help but to think that the mountains will have great skiing conditions after last night’s snowfall

day 857 – cambie corridor

image

night time on cambie looking down the street fronts and oncoming headlights. this corridor has really become my hood through the years, for everything i need and do can be found. i had a gym calling to put in my work before going out for dinner with the family. with the sky being so clear tonight, thought to myself why not take a stroll before heading home. an enjoyable stroll it was because i needed personal space to debrief and recuperate, for much of it was invaded this past week

day 788 – rooftop

image

grand villa casino doesn’t know too shabby when viewed from the rooftop parking lot. i have never been inside the casino before even though i stopped by the parkade handful of times. the parkade is quite large and judging by the amount of cars parked, there must be a lot of gamblers inside. not a big fan of casinos because there’s just no winning against dealers or slot machines and i don’t have the extra moola to donate to casinos

day 531 – winter sun

image

surprisingly sunny on a january afternoon but it is still very cold out there. the weather has been the same past few days, sunny by day and foggy by night. i wish i could take a jet plane to fly above the clouds to take pictures of the city through the fog. i heard you can get very mysterious snapshots with the fog. but since that’s not possible, i will take an afternoon stroll under the clear blue sky and white clouds

day 219 – early morning

image

in downtown bright and early for an important meeting on a sunny friday morning. surprisingly didn’t get lost making my way around downtown, it’s not a place i particularly like to be wandering in. time is flying right before our eyes, the week went by really fast and another weekend is on the horizon again. sometimes time needs to slow down because its scary to see that its already the third month into the year
