Welcome 2015, and First Shots with the M8,


happy new year my fellow blog followers, friends and families. i had a great start with taking out the trash during the countdown and watching 2 Broke Girls season 3, in another words, procrastinating all the way. i believe there will be a lot of i-will-lose-my-weight resolutions. mine? i will not change myself from what i was on 11:59 of new years eve being a ass-hole.

ブログ読者の皆さん、友人各位に家族の皆様、明けましておめでとうございます。年末はカウントダウンの最中にゴミ出しをして2 Broke Girlsのシーズン3を見てました。平たく言うと、ゴロゴロしてただけです。多分、今年は絶対痩せます的な抱負がたくさんあると思いますが、自分はと言えば大晦日の11:59の時と変わらない大馬鹿野郎でいたいと思います。

had some Sushi Boy take out and went to my parent’s place to follow the usual tradition. and of course, the energetic monsters wanted to hit the park. and of course daddy brought out my Leica to take the initiation photo of 2015.




monster number 2 wanted daddy instead of the mommy to push her swing. Shino one, Kana zero LOL



and this monster number 1 finally learned how to rock the swing by herself. good job girl.



wishing you all a great healthy and safe sheep year.




the last play date of 2014. decided to jump on the band wagon with the wifey to check out this play-date thingy. with all the previous business trips, i indeed must act like a dad during my vacation.




3 families including us, plus one more family with a total of 9 kids. result, its tiresome but it was definitely a good way to interact with the kids. not to mention i had a major back pain afterwards but… lol

うちいれて全部で3家族だったところ別家族も合流で子供の合計9人。 結果、めっちゃ疲れましたが子供達とたくさん遊びました。帰りの腰痛が無ければ…笑


found a master of tree-climing.



don’t let go you hand little one.



of course she got arse-bumped after the first push. no pain no gain my dear.


i was surprised to see by how much the two girls have grown up to. on the other hand, i was surprised of how old i was getting. also it was an great occasion to dust off the 1D MkIII.

娘達を見てて成長したんだな〜とちょっとビックリ。逆に、自分の老いにガッカリ。それと1D MkIIIの埃飛ばすのにはうってつけだった。

thanks for the invite wifey.



This blog needs some action,


Happy Holidays.

yes its been nearly 2 months since my last post. where was I? yes Vancouver as usual struck by the Norovirus 1st week with a fear of fecal accident(s), caught cold on the second, and a depressing headache on the 3rd week. still made it through the year. good job me, pat on my shoulder.


anyways, i think i’ve said this too many times this year, but will try to update my blog more often.


Underwood Family Farms,


swung by at the Underwood Family Farms today. something summer-ish to do with the fams. its a LOT cheaper then visiting Lego Land or Disneyland or whatever. man they are like $100 per admission? geesh. i rather save up for my camera stuffs lol hence the choice. it was a good bang for the buck with fruit hunting (or harvesting), pony riding and goat brushings. a lot more interactive and practical. i just hate standing in the line for 40min+ and the ride finishing in 2 seconds. and the price for the beer…

L1010143L1010121pony riding. they had a horse riding place next door. maybe we should visit there next time!

L1010206and the cow train. L1010215that fitment doe… LOL

L1010186c’mon we came to pick up fruits and not watch you guys park-ing.

L1010227blackberries hunting. the little one was bored i guess. she kept running back and forth (yea i was a guard dog looking after my wife’s bags and stuff).
