day 2195 – walk in clinic

as much as i didn’t want to go back to work after a long weekend, i was less happy to be spending three and a half hours at a walk in clinic waiting for both the doctor and pharmacy. the mosquito bite flared up so bad overnight i didn’t get any sleep. i got up in the middle of the night to apply and reapply the hydrocortisone. when i woke up, my leg was so red and swelled up it no longer looked like a leg. the doctor prescribed the same antibiotics as last time. i guess that’s what i get for not finishing it last time

day 2030 – coffee run

doing an afternoon zero waste starbucks coffee run with the girls. i need the caffeine to keep my awake, but it’s also making my headache worse. still went to flipping afterwards and both my kicks and flips were on point. another disappointment and another day missed on landing my roundoff back tuck. given that my roundoff was better than ever before, i thought i’d land it today and my coaches did too. the hopes of doing so slowly slipped way from me and i started to get discouraged. disappointed i came short again and will have to wait for next time

day 1942 – drop top

another visit to my fanling grandma before paying a visit to my beloved grandpa. although on map nothing in hong kong is far in distance, it takes an hour for commute. it’s the required walking, constantly crowds, unpredictable waiting and endless traffic that adds up. what a pleasant surprise my uncle offered to take me for a spin in his mazda convertible. i would’ve wanted to drive it if it wasn’t manual transmission

day 1441 – autowest 

i brought my german toy into annual maintenance for oil change. upon sitting down with the service advisor, he advised a few more parts to be upgraded or will soon need to be replaced, each item ranging from a couple hundred bucks to seven hundred. i’ll wait on those and in the meantime consult other technicians for professional opinion before making any decisions

day 189 – ice and more ice

ankle still swollen and only feels worse after a night of dodgeball. having consulted my physio, apparently he had told me i was suppose to ice for next three days and wasn’t suppose to be do sporting activities. now that really disrupts my schedule, what am i going to do for the rest of the week??

day 28 – border

at peace arch post between canada and america waiting for the line of car to move ever so slowly. unexpectedly long lineup to cross the border just to pick up my tennis gear and of course fill up some cheaper gas at blaine. wished i had something better to do and someone to keep me company

day 2 – one happy driver

the long wait is over and my wish has become reality,. i am finally the rightful owner of this baby which i have named shadow. of course, it is also going to burn a huge hole in my wallet. nonetheless, i have worked hard for this and earned it, plus a parking spot in the garage and now the rav4 is defaulted to parking in front of the house
