day 1276 – lunar new year

my mom prepared way too much food for the lunar chinese new year hotpot. it was a good dinner to close off the year and i’m looking to continue my workaholic ways in the year of the rooster; this is the time work extra hard. i’m stuffed but we did not even clear half the amount of food on this table, so i expect to have another hotpot this weekend. i don’t like the feeling of feeling bad for having eaten

day 1263 – barbie’s birthday

image

it’s cake time for the one and only barbie i’ve ever had in my life. an asian fruity sponge cake to make him feel special on his special day. i think deep down he’s happy just having all members of the family gathered for a good meal and then some cake. it was good that i caught up on some sleep because i needn’t set an alarm. it was an even better day being lomo’s happy tenth. we were both busy and didn’t have our celebration, but we’ll have it tomorrow

day 1262 – tofu fanatic

image

the whole family gathered to celebrate my dad’s birthday. there were many dishes on the table just like any typical chinese seafood restaurant, but this was by far my favourite dish. i enjoyed a good sit down meal with my family, we haven’t had much opportunity to engage like tonight. thankful i made it to friday. this week has been brutal as i had wavering moments and tons on my mind. it’s not resolved, but i’m holding it together

day 1253 – hearty meal

image

all my favourite dishes were on the dinner table because i’m finally home for dinner on last day before parents leave for mexico. it’s her way of saying it’s good to have me home for dinner for once. it was a great homecooked meal; i enjoyed every dish and stuffed myself too much. i have yet to get back on track with eating the way i would like to and that needs to be done starting tomorrow. now that she’s going on vacation, i might as well not cook to solve that problem

day 1164 – mom’s birthday

image

mom’s birthday means getting the family together and usually defaults to chinese restaurant. i did not survive the dinner and cake too well. i regret touching half the food that i had; i feel heavy and slowed for drop in hockey and the scale confirms that. eating was poor today but special occasions like this is sometimes unavoidable. i will gladly get back on it and undo the damage. enjoyed celebrating the birthday of the woman who brought me to earth

day 1102 – car shoot

image

woke up so early just to clean my car and make it look presentable for this morning’s photoshoot. my brother insisted on taking new pictures to update his family car portrait. our collection is so blue and grey, i think i should get a more vibrant colour for my next car. this is the perfect opportunity for me to practice my climbing skills by climbing on top of cars

day 1098 – two series

image

welcoming my brother’s two series to the family. after saying goodbye to his mazda rx8 more than a month ago, i finally got a good close up view of his new car since he brought it home. the blue exterior is alright, but the┬áspanking new five spoke rims look really nice. looking at it reminds me that i need to change my car tires and rims after the summer season
