day 2325 – term end

christmas cards and gifts from my sweet students because it’s on the last day of the term. it’s been a really stressful and hectic term teaching without a vice head instructor. i now have a very fresh and young group of teaching assistants, but it’s good to see them work so hard and improve their skillset. i’d like to take all the credit for honing them into the junior instructors that they are, but they’re all taking the initiative to as learn and grow to become role models

day 2301 – surrendered bubble tea

because i was still feeling the ill-effects of the bronchitis, cough and cold, i surrendered my free bubble tea to someone who would be able to enjoy it more. over a week of intense coughing day and night. i’ve gone through bottles of cough syrup, packets of lozenges and endless tylenol cold pills, yet i still can’t get some quality sleep during the night. all i want is to rid this nagging cough, sore throat and runny nose

day 2203 – shaved ice

being done with the never ending bottle of antibiotics is something to celebrate for. so i celebrated no more dealing with side effects by training a little more than the past days. although my neck and back from the whiplash is still noticeable, i still insisted on building my back tucks back onto the floor without a spot. after training, the crew had the urge to get shaved ice so i got a chance to try snowy village for the first time. this is bad for my eating plan, but at least i shared it with two others

day 1821 – vitasoy

i didn’t understand why my body feels soreness like a post deadlift day even though i hadn’t. i guess that on ice collision was pretty hard and gave my backside a hard jolt. i decided taking a day off bootcamp would probably set me up for a more productive friday flip session. instead, my colleagues and i went to seven twenty sweets for a liquid nitrogen run. one way to beat the heat was to try the limited time offer vitasoy and vita malt

day 1756 – japanese kitkat

coworker came back from japan trip with goodies to share. of the many flavors she brought back, i chose the matcha and sake. of the many kitkat flavors i’ve ever tried, matcha is still my favourite. a headache made me feel crappy this morning, i didn’t think i’d stay at the office the whole day. popping a few advils seemed to have helped me head and got me through the rest of it. calling it an earlier day and hopeful it gets better by tomorrow

day 1708 – bakery cakery


rushing out of the office like a mad woman trying to buy a cake on the day of my brother’s birthday. what i was going for was a mousse cake but none left so i stuck with chinese fruit cake. most of my family members doesn’t eat whip cream, but we’ll make do this time and make sure we order in advance the next time around. we may not talk much with both of us being workaholics and having such busy schedules, but i’ll still go the distance for him when necessary 

day 1703 – cafe savoureux

dessert hopping stop number three to start the long weekend. we ordered different drinks and shared the fancy cakes. we like to get together for an afternoon tea with drinks and sweets. sitting together at the table talking out the stresses of work and relieving our minds before a three day weekend. for the first time in three months, it’s one weekend i do not have to work. though i don’t have to go into work, i still have to make time to work at my own time. it’s month end so there’s extra work to do to wrap up the march and prepare for april
