day 1173 – no go

image

concluded my month-long debate with a tough decision. my team was shocked with the news, but concerned about my well-being. i’m passing on president cup as i didn’t have enough training time to feel prepared for an international event. i do have every intention to compete at the grassroot competition on the same weekend; couldn’t pass up on both events because my heart wants to compete. there’s no way of hiding my disappointment. i felt so dejected there was no way i could get my head in it to practice today. perhaps when i wake up tomorrow morning, i might feel relieved that at least a decision was made. only time will heal both wounds

day 589 – burrard street

image

looking skyward up towards the open sky and i can’t possibly miss the banners that hang on the lamp post. seeing that banner really hits me that there’s only a month remaining until the dreaded vancouver sun run. i can’t help but feel unprepared knowing there’s so much to do in so little time. must plug in those headphones, pick up the slack and run the hell out before it’s too late to feel guilty

day 296 – meteor

image

i just happen to be in the vicinity of richmond district tonight so we made a last minute decision to hang around iona beach in hopes of catching some meteor. unfortunately because of our spontaneous decision, we weren’t prepared for the cold so didn’t manage to stay long enough to catch any. next time we shall be more equipped and well prepared to stay longer and maybe even a dslr to go along with it

day 242 – typhoon

image

reported massive flooding everywhere in hong kong streets, malls and mtr stations, and that’s probably one of the rare times when you will find an unpopulated sector in hong kong. friend sent me this photo and i thought it was a waterfall at first glance, almost don’t remember how hong kong pouring is like but this gives me recollection. they are clearly not as prepared as we are for down pours

day 81 – surprise surprise

image

with very short notice on this award, just had to wing the performance today. luckily i did not embarrass myself in front of all my students, parents, instructors and grandmaster and others in attendance of the promotion test. thinking back, at times when i could have and should have worked harder

day 79 – still left sitting

image

still sitting here thinking what happened and why i am chosen for the good yet bad news. with such short notice and little or no way for me to prepare for something i have been put on the spot, what is expected of me?? i hate not living up to expectations and i certainly don’t want to screw up in front so many
