Whistler Weekend

Two days in Whistler for Thanskgiving weekend.

First 3 runs super horrible, but towards the end it was good!

After skiing, went to the hot tub.  Turns out most of the other folks came in from Seattle but was from Canada..  originally.  Hahaha.. I think some were even from waterloo

The second night, came back for some 冬瓜盅  (this time a 4 person one) and  lil dragon dumplings!! :)

Benihana and Puerto Rico

Had a Dragon Benihana Punch, 3 bottles of sake and a lobster tail and steak... Delicious as always!

After dinner, and a flask worth of scotch later, we then went and played Puerto Rico, where I was tricked by Red Riding Hood, and lost because of it.   

Next time I shall have my revenge.. wuhahaha

Out of Shape Soccer on a Weekday Evening

After a few weeks of zero exercise, I was pretty out of shape.  On my first touch of the ball, I was running towards it, and was hoping to step on the ball and pivot on it to do a spin move so that I would do a 180 turn and trap the ball.. But instead, I totally missed the ball and fell

The referee, who at this point sort of recognized me, and I guess remembering that I don’t suck THAT much, had a little smirk, and was trying hard to not burst out laughing.  My teammates though was less forgiving and busted out laughing, as did I.  This is a good reminder that I need to stay constantly active - so I don't look silly.

The engineer in me...

So looking at my old phone, I realized that the reason for the endless rebooting is because the power button is pushed in.  So I thought, if I can somehow pull that out a bit, then the phone would no longer reboot!

So off I went about this task, and eventually, SUCCESS.  My phone booted up without restarting, and I was able to pull out my photos.  More importantly, the lobster video!

Now will this turn out to be a $500 video?.. hrmm... But then again, the phone was defected originally.. perhaps I should have taken my own photo of it after my surgery.

Note: Fast forward a year.. I am hard at work trying to move my photos and videos to the cloud... but I can't find these pictures!!! :(.... so my moving lobster video and all that yummy food in Hawaii is gone forever...
