is it worth?

Our brother decided to, after a follow-up appointment with his family doctor, visit Fitness World and enroll for membership. But he did not actually go workout until Feb. 07.

since November 1999

In July 1995, James got a pair of Giorgio Armani glasses. Then in November 1999, he got a pair of Alfred Sung's. Since the frame was not flexible and did not have any spring-joints, they finally snapped and James had to wear his Armani's for at least a week. He bought a pair of MagiFlex for $250 (minus 25%) and paid $180 for lenses. The prescription has not changed much for the past ten years; in fact, only .5 on the right. But the service of this store (located near the upper food court of Metrotown) wasn't up to expectations. James knows better now for next time when he needs to buy prescription glasses. We know that even though his eyesight has been quite stable for so long, it will go on a steeper decline. We only hope that the angle of this decline is not so high that James will become blind by the time he is called off duty.

here we go again...

Today is the first class of this term for FMGT 2710 @ BCIT. James may decide to take up an accounting certificate. He actually has a schedule planned out for all the courses he needs to take for that cert, to be completed by the end of 2006. We will continue to provide support to our brother.

red eyes

James' left eye started getting red on Thursday. Saturday evening was bothering him when he looked at the monitor for too long. By Sunday morning, he had trouble keeping his eye opened without feeling some kind of itchy irritation. He went to get a bottle of Visine®. It didn't help. Later on next month, James would get word from a licensed (but junior) pharmacist that the eye would be worst off if one was to stop using Visine. Anyway on Monday, during his lunch break, James went to the walk-in clinic by Royal Center's Food Court. He managed to book a 16:30 appointment to see his family doctor the same day (he didn't know this should not be done in consideration of the provincial medical plan). Both doctors prescribed two different medications. James left with only the second doctor's prescription. With this prescription, he bought eyedrops which he applied to his eye. Much of the redness disappeared the very next morning.

(but did not go away completely as of Feb. 14 when this entire posting was created.)

Sometimes the left eye would be more red than other days and would usually disappear after a couple drops. It looks like James will have to contact his family doctor for another prescription as the first one does not offer refills.

Big White

James departs from his official residence for a 3-day/2-night trip to Big White near Kelowna. It will be his first time to ski and snowboard. He gives thanks for the very appropriate weather and the relatively fresh powder. He is also eternally grateful to share this section of space and the timeline with three friends as well as other associates of society.
