day 1993 – parents los cabos

i rushed from flipping to pick up my parents from the airport after their eight day travel to the sunny los cabos. it so happened to be my dad’s birthday, but they didn’t really feel like eating out when they returned, i guess there was too much of that in mexico. it sounded like they had a relaxing time escaping the cold weather of vancity. i’m glad they live life to its fullest and travel as often as they like. though i lose some freedom, i do restore the regular my eating routine

day 1961 – fishy cravings

it hasn’t been long since i had some. but the fish craving is pretty strong once again since i didn’t get a fair share of sashimi during my vacation. going without sushi for more than week is rare, but it’s hard to be picky when on vacation. also, i was told not to trust the salmon within many places in asia. the best fishes are on the west coast, so it only makes sense i take full advantage of them and abuse my rights

day 1938 – taikwun

a full day of fun hanging out with friends. i can’t say enough about how much i appreciate them taking time out to chill during my visit. it’s too bad we didn’t get to go up to the peak, but there was so much more we could explore and eat. we toured around the former hong kong prison and police station, walked around central area, then all the way to causeway bay. the eating tour continues which started with famous egg tarts and finished off with some curry beef omlette. another twenty five thousand steps logged which is good cause i have lots of calories waiting to be burned

day 1934 – hotel gym

i’m pleasantly surprised as i walked into my hotel gym to see a squat rack and bench rack. i immediately claimed the squat rack because i was afraid someone else would steal it from me. despite the ghetto equipment, the gym was very well equipped with the exception of lack of stretching mats and space. i had a leg day, not that hong kong isn’t already full of cardio from all the walking. it’s funny i’ve been lifting for over five years and could close my eyes and know the weights in imperial, but had much trouble converting the plates in kilograms

day 1928 – singapore bound

eighteen hours on an airplane with a one hour rushed transfer in between really upset my knees. i was so exhausted prior to the flight that i completed passed out the bulk of the first flight and didn’t bother with washroom breaks or cup noodle. you could say i’m excited and not excited for this trip. this bi-annual asia trip consist of a stop in singapore before hong kong. i’ll be my nth time visiting hong kong, but first in singapore

day 1927 – underpacked

i would say i’m all packed up and to get on this plane but by the time i reached the departure gates, i already had a strong feeling i had severely under packed with my lackluster effort. i clearly didn’t prioritize packing and had minimal time to do so in my schedule. the good thing is i’m heading to asia so i can still buy things as i go. maybe it’s not a bad idea to have reasons to shop for things

day 1490 – many milesĀ 

one thousand two hundred odd kilometres later, i have made another loop around portland. road trips are meant to be fun but don’t realize how tiring it can be until i get home. intake was upped significantly during the vacation days, i must once again put on eating restraints; maybe i don’t mind having eating disorder again. it’s good to be back home sleeping on my own bed even if it feels like a sauna
