day 743 – small boat big boat

image

walking along side the waterfront in the afternoon and couldn’t help but notice the size differential of the two boats. when a cruise ship and a speed boat is put side by side, it makes the reference of a fish and a shark. reminds me of the time i went on an alaskan cruise where i was trapped on the ship with insurmountable food which almost made me sick. yes, so much food every day, every hour, every waking second, i thought i’d get seriously ill from seeing food

day 728 – summer’s day

image

looking like a typical july summer’s day as i sit under the sun gazing out. this is the best time for tourists to come visit the west coast. glad to see the warm and sunny weather returning to vancity but i am not physically able to enjoy the outdoor activities. i am hoping and expecting to return to my regular activities soon and is eagerly awaiting the clearance to resume all that planned

day 629 – big ship

image

wondering what this grand princess cruise ship is doing at canada place since i heard they aren’t allowing cruises to depart from this dock anymore. it’s so much more massive than the zuiderdam i was on when i cruised to alaska. seeing all the people wheeling suitcases around the dock makes me believe i need vacation soon. it’s been way too long since my last one i am super exhausted without the work life balance

day 574 – pink it forward

image

pink is the name of the game on antibullying day. tonight i made a detour to pass by the five sails because it was lit up pink. it was cold, so as long as you are bundled up, walking along the seawall at night is very nice and calming. the refractions of colours in the water sums up the stillness of the night. i am sure it’s more beautiful in the spring and summer time

day 531 – winter sun

image

surprisingly sunny on a january afternoon but it is still very cold out there. the weather has been the same past few days, sunny by day and foggy by night. i wish i could take a jet plane to fly above the clouds to take pictures of the city through the fog. i heard you can get very mysterious snapshots with the fog. but since that’s not possible, i will take an afternoon stroll under the clear blue sky and white clouds

day 518 – eve adventure

image

time has flown by so quickly, today is the last day of the year. instead of going to a large scaled event to party like originally planned, decided to keep it low and have a quiet celebration to the new year. had a good time going up mount seymour and strolling around downtown for the countdown. it was a mix of good and bad this year with many eventful times, but through all i have grown to be stronger and ready to take the next step and make things happen in 2015

day 394 – delish dinner

image

tonight’s dinner was absolutely delish, and expensive. in for a treat at miku’s with mom eating fine sushi on a friday evening to kick start a long weekend. yes, how rare is it that i get to eat dinner at normal dinner time on a friday. and yes, how often can i confidently say i have a weekend that i can actually catch up on life and rest like a normal human being

day 348 – hot and sunny

image

gorgeous vancouver weather and would be happier if i had more time to enjoy it outside. down at the water front getting myself the required vitamin d from sunlight and summer heat. hope it’s here to stay for a while cause i haven’t started my season and definitely not ready to see it end

day 314 – sunset

image

what started off as a rainy and wet morning turned into a fairly sunny evening. a fitting stroll along kitsilano beach was called for after being bloated with lots of malaysian food. i wasn’t able to walk for long, but a short calming walk along beach with summer winds blowing against our faces and witnessing the sunset was still a bonus. vancouver does treat us well with the abundance of surrounding water

day 306 – free lunch

imagemy trek out on my way for a free lunch at mahonys and sons with the big bosses on a warm sunny monday afternoon. could never go wrong filling my stomach with a chicken quesadilla and caesar salad. sunny days with free meals, what a terrific combination and could have more days like this
