day 2175 – render glitches

sketchup glitches getting in the way of updating hampton prototypes. what’s modeled isn’t what comes out in the interactive rendering. it’s not something that can’t be fixed, usually simply closing and reopening the file or removing the item and replacing it will do the job. most updates for the casual scheme are complete queued and waiting to be rendered. part of a renderer’s life cycle is clicking the render button and waiting for the crop to appear

day 1245 – disc pistol

image

i rolled my eyes when i was first introduced to pistols three years ago because i didn’t think i could. i was in for a big surprise today  when i found out i mastered the weighted disc pistol. i’m very happy this was unlocked at my morning appointment today. i have no idea how many times i watched and rewatched this clip. of course, this all happened prior to being treated by the physio when he forcefully adjusted my knees and rearranged my back and ribs that’s still preventing me from cleans

the human resources department surprised me with an envelop on my desk enclosed with small gifts and a gift card. tis the season; the countdown to christmas is officially on when i receive my first gift. i better get started on my christmas shopping for all my gifts including my annual secret santa exchange. spending so much money yet i still haven’t bought myself anything

day 1127 – post rolling

img_20200203_1330523310199490436145819.jpgwrapping up august with a satisfying workout and some intense rolling. the month has flown by so fast and today’s weather tells me summer season won’t last. reflecting on the month, i have made plenty of progress both physically and mentally, and in turn grown as a person. i have a lot to be thankful for, those who didn’t give up on me. i found that if i put my mind to something, i surprise myself and don’t always lose to my own expectations. the self realizations doesn’t end here, it’s only the beginning. stay tuned for the months to come on my journey to finding myself

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 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 986 – my cup of tea

imagecame down with a nasty cough, headache and later found out i have a 39 degrees fever. got plentiful of rest throughout the day coupled with lots of honey lemon water and drugs. my personal nurse made a surprise visit and came in through my front door to meet my folks for the first time. glad he’s always watching out for me and bringing me more than just medications when i need it most

day 708 – just another

image

physio this morning brought some surprises. first time this year i need not to do muscle stim which i guess is good and bad news. maybe because my left knee was acting up and needed his attention. another surprise, but not really surprised, is both my hip and tailbone were a little messed up from that raccoon incident. it was so busy at the office today the wait was even longer than usual and before i knew it, i spent too much of my morning here

day 640 – birthday with hamberites

image

had a very fine night dining with my close hamber circle at the keg steakhouse. all i wanted for my little celebration was to hang out and see their faces, i definitely wasn’t expecting to receieve any special gifts but they surprised me with cards, presents and cake. clearly i am truly blessed with the people that surrounds me who filled me with gifts, flowers, cards and alcohol. not allowed to drink for a while, but i am sure that bottle of absolut will come in handy one day

day 565 – absurd

how in the world can someone walk into the gym with a cane but leave without it after a workout. apparently it’s possible because i witnessed it first hand tonight in the change room and here’s a photo to prove it. bizarre things happen every now and then. the world is full of surprises and might throw you a curveball when you least expect it. i guess the surprises keep us on our toes and makes life interesting
