day 1846 – uncle tetsu

i have no idea why my mom ended up at metrotown but it was a good coincidence. she brought home the highly sought after cheesecake along with honey madeleines from uncle tetsu. as soon as she sent me a message with a picture of the goods, i knew i was in for a treat when i get home from my hockey game. jabba da puck didn’t bring home the victory to force game three, but it was a good run for the cup. it was still a good spring season and being finalist isn’t too shabby

day 1690 – squirtle bonder

bonder for squirtle squad at the fancy chop steakhouse. i went all out because i knew they were well known for steak and the prime rib i ordered was absolutely delicious. it’s one of the odd times i order medium rare and i actually get it done with a good amount of red in my meat. left with a pretty hefty bill but treating myself once in a while is not so bad. the squirtle jerseys are in and done; we’re ready for the spring season. it sounds like we have a good team and i’m really looking forward to it

day 1151 – grill some

for the first time in a long time, there was no training, meeting or hockey on a saturday night; this only meant we could have an actual saturday night to ourselves. this crazy one took me to gyu kaku barbecue to experience meat like never before and then ice cream to go with it. it’s good to eat like this once in a while even though the oil could potentially be hazardous. i’ve eaten well enough over the course of the month to have earned this treat meal

day 931 – liquid nitrogen

a hamber reunion is a great excuse to indulge in some liquid nitrogen ice cream. i never tried any of vancouver’s top soft serve dessert places before. tonight i made an exception and went for a treat meal while my “hubby” is making a special appearance all the way from taiwan. great time with great company as always, it makes up for the mishaps that took place in dodgeball tonight. my thumb is in considerable pain i am still contemplating if i need to consult a doctor

day 898 – meet or meat

today is not just any friday, it’s a fries day lunch date. i am a first timer at this restaurant and lots on their menu sounded really good. i stuck with the mountain burger today, but next time i definitely want to try all their other items. it was a good time with good company, good laughs and good chats. this was a treat meal and a celebratory one for making it through the week, making it past all the stresses, and making it to the deadline even though i had to sleep at 3am to finish. hopefully i get some much needed and deserved sleep tonight
