day 898 – meet or meat

image

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

day 897 – cake for dad

image

a vegan chocolate mousse cake for dad’s birthday this year. unfortunately much too sweet and too rich to his liking, but i’ll keep in mind to place a custom order next time. nonetheless it wasn’t just about the cake, it’s the company that makes all the difference. as we grow older, i realize what you do for the family cannot and will not always be observed. lots go unnoticed but you go about your business no matter the situation and that’s what makes you special

day 894 – munching at gym

image

surely munching away on a chocolate chip cupcake is totally normal at the gym. it wasn’t the typical kind of cupcake off the shelf but a delicious yet nutritious version made with veggies that was devoured in a heartbeat. i am so glad there weren’t seconds available or that might cause some trouble. i’ll just convince myself maybe i worked hard enough and exerted much energy during the workout, and if not, there’s always dodgeball that follows

day 845 – gate six

it’s chilly but it’s not raining, so why not enjoy a sunday stroll from hipster land to downtown. as long as i am dressed appropriately for this weather, i would be glad to be out making this trek. somewhere in between we stopped for vegetarian food at a hipster restaurant, canucks store at rogers arena, coffee at blenz and vegan gelato in false creek. my first time trying out vegetarian and vegan food; i actually don’t quite mind it at all and debating if i should give converting a try. i really wished my gyms closed later on weekends because i didn’t make it in before it closed
