img_20200124_1513495203559704837950231.jpg

this getaway was meant to be everything but jam-packed and hectic. some of us just wanted to spend the afternoon relaxing on the balcony to soak in the long lost vitamin d. we laid on the balcony for hours chatting and joking our way through the day. it was good to have some team bonding time away from the rink. we definitely had a good laugh with the many jokes made and shots fired. this is a big change for me because i would never have down time like this back home. for this reason, i will take every opportunity this weekend to be the biggest sloth i can be

day 2076 – card building

the gstrings wanted to hangout and chill over some bubble tea, so we did a late night boba visit. this is so bad for my diet, but i was determined to keep the damage to a minimal by only drinking half of my half sweet taro slush. first time in a quite some time we sat down as a team and just chilled. we also played some big two and card building while some golfed down sushi and bubble waffles. i’m going to pay for staying out so late tomorrow morning

day 1898 – venom

couldn’t turn down an offer to go for old spaghetti factory dinner and dbox venom with the design team. this is one was on management for having followed through within an ultra optimistic deadline. i lazied out and didn’t read up on it or watch the trailer, but i really enjoyed the movie a lot more than what the mediocre reviews says. hopefully i’ll get more time to catch a few more new releases in theatres

day 1878 – karaoke night

team outing to millenium after playing our usual friday night hockey. it was a hard fought loss while being short on girls; we survived with three girls in the rotation. i was having so much fun at karaoke but had to leave early for work next day’s work. sang a bunch of retro jay chou, beyond, hacken, 98 degrees, backstreet boys and nsync certainly brings back a lot of good old memories. my throat was pretty dry by the end of the night, but it was an awesome night

day 1871 – eastsider

a flashback to the time when gstrings girls got together to celebrate our spirit owl win. one of the most fun dodgeball team i could ever be a part of. the chemistry we’ve developed on the court and the bond we’ve created off the court is something i wouldn’t give up. even though we’re taking a break, here’s hoping we will be reunited for another run for the money

day 1864 – team platters

typical platter choice of the team after a squirtle squad game. there are quite a few alcoholics on the team so pitchers of beer are also staples, along with nachos. it is the official start of delta coed fall season and a win registered for the squirtle is a strong start to the season. we already have more wins than we did for all of delta spring season. i’m sticking to playing the ‘d’ for this team to learn more. of course there’s plays i wish i to redo, but i think i held up in the back end for the most part

day 1823 – team barbecue

there’s a few flakes but the team barbecue turnout wasn’t too shabby. there was a lot of drinking involved considering the rest of the guys are playing a game afterwards. i wouldn’t be in on any of the drinking games if i was healthy enough to play. i’m very disappointed i have to sit out, especially when i was ramping up my hot goals streak. the duration is indefinite until i get another assessment. i’m on a short leash so i could be off to the emergency barring any symptoms. i’m praying it’s nothing serious, but i’m also starting to worry more and more

day 1777 – winner winner

who would go to penta when i could be hanging out with these girls. presenting season 24 and 25 gstrings, back to back to back season winners of hootie the spirit owl. we ordered nothing by appetizers including nachos wings, yam fries, salad and brussel sprouts. a bill that was suppose to be over one hundred and twenty came out to eight all thanks to being sprit winners. pigging out on finger food after bootcamp sounds like an acceptable combo. even though gstrings won’t be in next season for various reasons, the return for season 27 is already in the talks

day 1735 – bumps and spikes

img_20200130_2133293181316743475430811.jpgbonding time with teammates of bubble tea gobblers and getting ready to play some volleyball.¬† this time we faired a lot better and won two out of three games. although i don’t think it was wise to play with my ailing thumb but it’s hard to change a set stubborn mind. there was only bumps and spikes from me but no sets. between work and play, i had some down time at richmond centre and splurged on a pair of sweatpants and another hoodie. at least it’s something i have been eyeing for over a month

day 1733 Рdouble double headers 


never have i played four games in one day, two double headers on the menu today. first double header is 9am softball in this rainy condition. it was so nice to have a hot shower after being soaked from the rain and mucky gravel fields. by the time i made it to the fourth and final game of the day, my brain has already shut down and my legs no longer want to function. at the end of all the games, hung out with the guys to chow down on wings. i’ll have to reconsider another four game day
