day 2101 – celebrating my existence

the celebration of my birth with my family comes a day before because my parents are flying out for vacation. i couldn’t decide on a japanese restaurant, so settled with dai jung kum instead. we enjoyed a good dinner together completed with a combo with no shortage of food on the table – barbecue meat, seafood pancake, dumplings, soup and side dishes. i enjoyed the dinner very much, not because of the delicious food, but the opportunity to sit down and share it with my family. my birthday would never be complete unless i can spend some quality time with my loved ones that would never leave me behind

day 1987 – hotpotting

had a bunch of friends crash my house for hotpot because they heard i have the whole house all to myself this week. i don’t normally get a chance to host any parties simply cause i don’t have my own place. it’s my first hotpot of the cold wintery days. i’m so full from stuffing down all the food including beef, pork, assorted meat balls, fish tofu, mushrooms, daikon, and veggies. there’s a lot of cleaning up to do after stuffing our faces but fortunately there was a dishwasher within the group

day 1851 – itshoni

an afternoon of taekwondo as usually, followed by a dinner with parents; this time dinner is on me. i held back on the news about my remuneration until today simply because i wanted to save it until i had a chance to take them out. they were surprised and very stoked when i finally let the cat out of the bag. we went to a restaurant called sushi itstoni, but didn’t actually serve any sushi. the food we ordered were delicious, especially the beef ribs, bibimbap, and not to overlook the typical korean appetizers. we left the restaurant with our stomachs full, but more importantly, i knew they were proud of me. seeing their proud smiles is worth it even though they didn’t know how much grief i went through to get this deserving raise

day 1769 – may birthday cake

big save on cake at showtime for all the may babies in the office. last year may babies got ripped off on our faceless cake. this year, we sure got an extra large cake with our caricatures on it. it seems absurd to be recelebrating a birthday that happened a month after the actual date. after stuffing my face, literally, i went for my second tricky class and got more practice flips in. i hope to attend as often as i can cause i want it back soon

day 567 – chinese new year celebration

chinese new year dinner with my family is inevitablly another day of continued heavy food consumption. we were eating away at the table full of food with portions that never seems to get any smaller, but i guess it goes with the chinese tradition of having leftovers. can’t go through chinese new year without having chicken and fish because we asians live by a lot of rules and superstitions

day 509 – first of many

so the christmas feasting has officially begun, every meal from here on for the rest of the year will be a guilt trip cheat meal. this is all you can eat sushi with monday tier 6 champ throbocops. i generally dislike all you can eats because lots of food with no exercise doesn’t cope well with my stomach. did i mention i desperately need to hit the gym to work off all the unnecessary consumption

day 494 – late night sushi

i was starving after the monthly colour belt promotion test and mini pro balling battle. there’s no better way to satisfy that hunger other than stuffing our faces with late night nigiri and sashimi. we went all out when it came to ordering and blazed through the entire menu like it was all you can eat. my love for sushi is strong, never too many meals of sushi, never get tired of eating sushi
