day 1941 – wanchai

one wishlist item on my hong kong trip is to ride the old school tram. i did just that today heading to wanchai from central. this district is crazy packed on any given night, let alone a saturday night. i stopped by my friend’s family burger shop but decided not to bother his dad seeing the already jam packed restaurant. instead, we ate at a small noodle house and walked around some famous strip including a school converted shopping mall

day 1709 – fancy shoes

got home from dodgeball and two boxes sat beside my staircase. i was so excited to see my shoe order came in the mail as a result of last week’s shopping spree. bought both pairs with a really good deal and they turned out to fit well. one is very comfortable and the other is rather avant-garde. i don’t regret spending the money on these at all; in fact, i should have bought a few more. as much i love shopping and my neverending wishlist, i have to monitor my savings too

day 1551 – atp basel 

in the wake of a heart breaking day that made me think the unsaid disappointment was the final deal breaker i’d allow for. i should really be getting more sleep during my recovery period, but waking up early for tennis is well worth it when it’s a federer match. he’s truly amazing to watch as he pulled through for an impressive eighth title at basel. i am also hoping to save up enough money soon enough to watch him play in person one day. i already missed out the opportunity to watch andy roddick live, i really don’t want to miss a second chance

a good day doing mostly the things we enjoy like watching midget hockey and wishlist shopping before a pig out and a quick stop to admire the christmas tree at mcarthurglen. i didn’t cross off anything on my shopping list but he found good deals on what he was looking for. just taking advantage of our time off during the holidays and soaking in the festive season while we can

day 779 – when and where

when is it my turn to take a real vacation to get away from this hectic life?? i have taken time off, i have flown and driven and gone across canada, but none of which was purely for vacation because i held competition obligations. i am drained, overworked and am in dire need of a vacation where i can just relax and get away from stresses of life no matter how big or small. there’s too many places, cities and countries on my wishlist; when and where will i be able to fulfill them??

day 127 – dream nike free

even though buying customized nike frees would be beyond my budget, it doesn’t hurt to design one just for the heck of it. here’s a snapshot of my desired colour combination of nike free but its a pity the dark purple overlay and midsole topline isn’t showing it the way i have it designed
