day 1511 – solstice begins

on days like this being stuck indoor away from windows isn’t ideal. the weather looks to be good for the rest of the week with the start of summer season. temperature is on the rise and it’s just one of the reasons summer is my favourite, for it brings sunshine to my life. all the fun summer activities awaits. maybe this will brighten my mood and bring me to a better place 

day 1464 – flight home

flying out of the nevada desert and going back home where my good old bed awaits. i take with me a lot of valuable and imperative experience that was gained attending this tradeshow. not only did i learn about the industry, i also learned a lot about my coworkers, manager and even the big boss. it was a tiring trip being on my feet all day and all night. i’m ready to head back to vancity where i can chill with mo. i’m not homesick, but that’s enough flying for the month

day 1283 – february snow

the forecast was correct and vancouver indeed got its february snowfall overnight. we were forewarned about the precipitation, but the city did nothing to prepare for this snowfall. there was no signs of salted roads nor trucks shovelling snow. as a result, the road conditions was much worse than it needed to be and more car accidents than there should have been. my hour drive home from richmond back to vancouver was full of skidding

day 1255 – milder weather

reminiscing the summer temperatures because vancity’s winter has been far from mild. i’ve had enough of this snow, extremely chilly days and even earthquakes today. i walk out in the morning to be met by negative eight degrees which is unheard of in vancouver. the icy roads have been terrible; i witnessed accidents and had a few incidents where my car was sliding helplessly. my shadow is just hibernating and waiting for the snow to disappear

day 1247 – robson square

image

i can describe robson square outdoor ice rink as a massive crowd of people that falls into two categories: those who can’t skate or skates well but causes havoc. the ice condition was horrible by the time we arrived, good thing we brought our own skates because rentals would not be worth it. i wonder when the zamboni gets a chance to pave the ice. we had a short skate before heading out to check out the new sportchek across the street

day 1239 – mail bundle

image

came home to this bundle delivered to my front door which could only mean it came from the lone member that currently lives in hong kong. this is our fourth year of secret santa with the long standing underconstruction. i’m very excited but i’m threatened i mustn’t open it until i have witnesses in attendance. i can’t wait to open my gift during our christmas party and only wish next year the whole crew can be together in vancouver

30 share it [eighteen]

woke up this morning to find out that the weather forecast was correct for once. the streets were covered with a layer of snow and all parked cars have an added layer of icing. i’ll be driving out to my nash and my meeting with my mom’s rav 4, but before then, i had to scrape off the icing on the car. the snow is not heavy but it keeps falling through the day. i wonder if what condition it’ll be tomorrow and whether driving my beemer is plausible
