How to enjoy a fresh coconut. (If you have issues with the avocado pit, just walk away.)
Step 1 - procure a coconut.

Step 2 - grab a bfk (big f-ing knife)

Step 3 - hack away*

Step 4 - enjoy!**
*hold coconut 45° off its center axis and chop with the bfk in an assertive linear downward motion, repeat chops while rotating the coconut about its center axis.
**pick up fingers and go straight to hospital, if necessary, before enjoying coconut.

Listen to the voice of your inner child. What does that child say?
-"Let me eat cake."

Some of the best meals are the messiest ones. I ended up ditching the chopsticks halfway through to fully embrace eating #kamayan @mayhem.mtl

Sometimes all it takes for a good meal prep is to just cook a dinner the night before that's so tasty, you'll want to have it again for lunch.

My favourite things about travelling and staying @airbnb are meeting the hosts, learning about the area and pinning my hometown.

Where are you from?
-Canada, I moved to California from Montreal.

Were you born there.
-No, from Saskatchewan.

Is that the name of your hometown?
-No, it's Regina.

Umm, excuse me?
-It's pronounced, 'RE-GYNE-A' not 'RE-GEE-NA.

Oh OK, I heard something completely different.
-Yeah, it's the place that rhymes with fun.

#iloveregina ...If you haven't tried airbnb yet, try it on your next trip and use this link for a 45$ discount. Full disclosure, I get a travel credit. Everybody wins!

SBS 3F w/ @livsk8, enough said.

This off-season I dabbled in other sports.
Good or bad, I just tried my friggin best to be better than when I started and kept a smile on my face because fun; might as well have that too.

My cousin captured and submitted this photo as an art piece. Other cousins used to (still do) make fun of me, telling me that I had a poop filled diaper and this was hung up in a gallery for all the town to see.

It's strange to look at a younger version of myself hoping that I'm fulfilling his dreams and that I'm living true to the person in the image with the exception that I'm a poop-free pants wearing adult.

Kayla just became a #ショーンラビット usa-chan fan. @seanrabbitt

Update 09/01/2018
Kayla was kidnapped along with other belongings from our rental car parked on Webster St near the intersection of Post St when we were enjoying a nice dinner in Japantown, San Francisco.

Open-letter to the thief:

To the Smasher of windows, Burglar of vehicles,
I cannot begin to understand what state of mind you must be in or what must be lacking in your life that would lead you to take such actions. Life must be conflicted for anyone who can justify to themselves that this is acceptable behaviour; smashing windows and robbing people of their possessions. I hope you find solace in what you have done and live a better life.
However, you made Marissa cry and for that... I hope you suffer a slow and painful death by toe stub. I don't know how a toe stub will lead to your eventually demise. All I know is that it will be slow, painful, and embarrassing; the likelihood of this occurring is far less than being burglared. If the stars were to somehow align and you were to meet your demise in this fashion; picture me barefooted, atop of your freshly dug grave, dancing to the tunes being played by a ukulele in my hands.
