In a recent Toastmasters meeting, there was the theme of reflection. At the start of the year, I had some goals I wanted to achieve, like reading these specific book titles before the year ended. Then, life got in the way and lo and behold, September is here
For some, September is back to school time, and a fresh start if you will as the season turns, with that, also a time to get back into habits. It doesn't take a particular month to roll around to reflect, that can happen anytime. For me, it's been timely since several events happened since the start of the year
In Toastmasters, there is a portion of the meeting devoted to Table Topics, which are impromptu speeches. My table topic was, can you think of a time when impossible became possible?
I shared how, when I first started cycling, how I one day, wanted to be able to finish the Whistler Gran Fondo. The first real climb I did was SFU, and I didn't make it to the top. I didn't even make it up halfway because, after a few meters of climbing, I was throwing up on the side of the road
Feeling discouraged and wondering, if I can't make it up this hill, how am I supposed to bike to Whistler?! However, I'm a firm believer in trying, I tried again, and made it! This past summer, I climbed my first mountain, Cypress, more than once! And recently, I rode my bike to Whistler. That was the time impossible became possible for me
So starting Monday on a positive note, can you think of a time when impossible became possible?✨

THE BEST BBT IN THE CITY 🤔?
Last week we put a sticker on our IGstory asking our beloved community which spots deserve to be on our top 10 BBT list. Over 50 people replied to it letting us know their allegiance (some aggressively 😂) and where we should make a visit to. Thanks to everyone who input their thoughts ❤️!
We know that BBT is serious business so we’ve been diligently reviewing (ie. having 2-3 BBT a day) all the submissions 😁
We've got a few more spots to hit up before we barricade ourselves and write up that list.
💭 Who should be in our top 10 BBT list? Last chance to yell at us and try to sway our list in the comments

Found a new Taiwanese beef noodle soup place that I LOVE!
They offer 6 different types of noodles that you can choose from.
For my flavourful braised beef bowl of noodles, I opted for their widest noodle width (25 mm).
The noodles were slightly chewier than I would have liked as they were on the thicker side, but I still enjoyed eating it.
I would come here again on a cold and rainy day!
High up in the mountains the landscapes start to change, the green and yellows of daily life disappear until there is only sky, water and snow. This creates a beautiful blue and white mosaic, the two colors that represent Xiamen Airlines ✈️ Capture the most beautiful #blueandwhite moment and share it by #flyxiamenair , and you might get a special gift from @xiamenairlines#ad

I have to admit, this was one of the best concerts that I’ve ever gone to! Granted, I haven’t gone to that many concerts but I had a lot of fun and it was really memorable. I was never really a huge Backstreet Boys fan but I recognized a ton of their songs and the sing along element was huge. That definitely made it more fun and the crowd interaction brought the experience to a whole new level. When everyone is belting it out as loud as they can the level of energy is sizzling and you can’t help but get hyped up and excited. Performance wise, they were pretty entertaining and they sang all of their classics. It’s something I would do again but not at that price for floor seats. However, I found it interesting that they’re performing in Macau next month at the Venetian and I’ll be there around that time. I’m not sure I want to see them again so soon but it would be kind of funny to go again. Plus they offer VIP packages for meet and greet and personal photo opportunities and the cost is $500 US plus the purchase of your ticket. It’s definitely a heavy price to pay to go by yourself but I’m all about checking off the bucket list and it would be awfully hilarious to check off the ‘go to a concert by yourself and get the VIP photo’ Realistically this probably won’t happen because I’m not that gung ho to go again and I’d rather spend my money at Robuchon au Dome and take a ton of food pictures. But gambling and poker always happen in Macau and if I should win a ton of money then I’ll quit playing games with my heart.

🍽: Clam soup
Okay it's kinda random, but I love the clam soup at Big Chicken Town. I loved it so much, I immediately went home and tried to make it myself. I love how spicy the soup is, and they give so many clams!
