day 1508 – free check

one thing i like doing when strolling is using free health check machines at drugstores. i’m pretty sure it’s put there for seniors to keep tab on blood pressure, but i’m a health conscious and self conscious person. in the past i’ve gone down to nineties over fifties which gave my kineisiologist a scare. the numbers are still low but at least it’s triple digit systolic number and inching closer to optimal range

day 1150 – megalopolis

image

the turnover rate at metropolis is so high, i don’t recognize a handful of the stores anymore. intended on doing some window shopping but ended up taking some goods home with me. i’m glad i found something i liked and was able to buy without feeling too guilty. i was feeling crummy so i spent the evening deep in thought about many things both current and for the future. after some thought, i feel like better and brighter days are ahead, i just have to keep my head up and keep going

day 1033 – home sweet home

image

words cannot describe how relieved i am to be back in vancity. not long after landing from my flight, i was met with a big surprise. aside from a couple hours of taekwondo duties, we spent the entire day together eating, strolling, working out and chilling like we normally do. i am lucky to have such a thoughtful man that stands beside me no matter how many miles we are apart. the tough stretch of being in different time zones is over. i am so done of traveling and plane rides for a while. we shouldn’t be separated for quite some time

day 1002 – revisiting jericho

image

by the water hoping i won’t be feeding the flies and mosquitoes. jericho brings back a lot of memories from the studio term that i spent doing a beach redevelopment project. but tonight, my job was to forget about all that and be one with the calmness. times when we can stand ashore to look out across and get a good view of downtown vancouver. i’ll definitely want to be back here again when summer really hits

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 695 – old quebec

image

tough day of competition with some slippage and certainly disappointment. hit me harder than anyone can imagine but it’s a wake up call and learning experience. i have some thinking, regrouping and re-prioritizing to do when i get back, but i will come back strong. in the meantime, going into old quebec late at night with the purpose of sightseeing. the area is pretty neat with some resemblance of vancity gastown and yaletown. turns out we stopped by mcdonalds just to try the mclobster and some mcflurries. would be nice to come back during the day time if time permits

day 426 – out and about

image

i had the desire to walk outside just because it was nice out. it may be sunny but it’s deceivingly chilly and that’s the typical vancouverites have gotten to know so well. i still want to deny that the season has changed, but there’s no denying when i need to pull out my autumn jacket. i cannot believe how fast time is going, it’s the end of another month and soon christmas will be approaching
