third anniversary special edition

over a thousand days later, tongtongvision has reached it’s third anniversary. what i started three years ago as a small undertaking has emerged into something very special; my life writes it, and it writes my life. dedicating this year’s special edition to showcase clips of my 2016 nationals in calgary. as always, a traveling experience and teambonding experience that had no shortage of fun and stressful times, but left me with some crazy memories. i take all the experiences learned and hope that it will come in handy one day. i am not sure how many more nationals i have in me, but i want each succeeding one to be better than the previous. life is about making progress, life is about never settling for less than what you believe in

 

day 1000 – big millennial

image

sitting across from me this evening is this fine looking who always makes me feel at ease. we can never get tired spending our down time together going for our lazy walks and finding our random adventures. we both have a very busy schedule, but we make all our time together count. making first appearance on my blog’s milestone 1000th day post is truly special. to be honest, hitting the millenium mark is very self satisfying. it’s been a great ride; let’s keep blogging it together through our various adventures towards many more milestones

day 900 – dineout

image

one more food post because it’s dineout vancouver in conjunction with a belated  celebration for my dad’s birthday. the kale salad and this seafood linguine was top notch, but the chocolate mousse dessert was disappointing. i normally don’t eat pasta but had to pick it after hearing good things about it. i guess i could break my rules just for dad’s special occasion

day 800 – birthday mom

image

celebrating one of the many special days of the year, but the person i celebrate it for and with doesn’t get any more important. happy birthday to my dearest mom, who works tirelessly to make each and every one of my day as smooth as it could be. a lot of times i overlook the little expressions and actions that could go a long way to making you realize how much you mean to me. do know that i appreciate every little thing you do for me and every moment spent together is quality time i cherish. and sometimes i just fail to express how i love you so. here’s to another great year ahead and many more to come. perfect way to make it my blog’s 800th day post. i have had a lot of pleasure writing all my posts and revisiting my posts to see where i have been and where i have come

second anniversary special edition

second anniversary special for recognizing and celebrating tongtongvision reaching yet another milestone. snippets of my 2015 canadian nationals in montreal which was a little different than last year’s toronto. still a trip filled with everything you can imagine from good times, crazy times, stressful times, exhausting times, but still creating lots of memories and meeting new people along the way. hope to go more places and with more of the gang to create more of these memories in the future, don’t let it stop, cheers to making it through another year of seesaw epicness, keeping it strong and hope it grows and only gets even better from here onwards

day 700 – larger than life

image

i have never ever seen or even heard of an order of bubble tea served in a pitcher containing all the toppings available. i wouldn’t dare order that because the amount of sugar in that pitcher alone is enough to cause diabetes and cause my organs and system some trouble. just looking at that already makes me really full and bloated. the deal was if my friend can finish that in one sitting without puking, the pitcher is on me. happy 700th day post, this blog has certainly come a long way

day 600 – pick me up

image

there are so many uncertainties in my life and so many things i cannot control. so many questions floating in my head. i can’t be certain if i have chosen the path i want, if it’s even possible, if it’s worth it and most importantly – is my passion still there. i am very scared that the passion no longer exists and i am pursuing something where my heart is not at. i am lost in darkness and not sure where i am headed. and if it’s not, it will only make me more depressed than ever. where are all the answers to get me out of this funk?? on a completely different note, happy 600th day post
