I've acquired a taste for eggplant so I've been on the lookout for easy eggplant recipes. I think I hit jackpot when I chanced upon this Eggplant Salad Toast recipe from Smitten Kitchen. So I bought eggplants this past weekend so I can make these toasts. I'm excited to try them. Hopefully, I do it right so D would eat them.
Aren't these mismatched plates lovely? I think it's one of the brilliant details in this sweet Oregon wedding. Such a great idea to collect these before the wedding and then use them at home after the wedding!
Our 9-month old BBQ grill is turning rusty which made me think of getting a new one. Now I'm contemplating on getting BBQ Bruce. It's perfect for people who do not have the luxury of backyards and will otherwise have to do with balconies... like us!
I'm in the midst of a slow and lazy Sunday. There's a good chance that the whole day will be spent watching TV, munching on snacks, surfing the net... all in the comfort of my bed. But you know what? I wouldn't mind being transported here.
This just reminds me how much I need (and want!) a vacation.
I'm off sweets to prep for The Day. And by prep, I mean drop 10 lbs. It's torture. So I resolve to torture myself even more by pinning pictures and recipes of cakes, cookies and cupcakes that I would love to stuff in my mouth if I wasn't on this no sweets (and chips, and fried food, and fastfood) diet.
How was your weekend? The weekend started as early as Thursday for us here in Bangkok as we celebrated the Queen's birthday. Thanks to the gloomy weather, D and I opted to stay in and sleep all weekend. We capped off our relaxing weekend by watching the cult classic Harold and Maude. Have you guys seen it? You must!
Maude is just made of pure awesome. I wish I can grab life by the balls like she did when I grow older.
D and I have made it a habit to listen to Radiolab, usually before we go to bed. I don't know why always before bed. I guess it's because we find it to be a relaxing way to end the day. Personally, I find Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich's voices soothing, which is probably the reason why I sometimes find myself dozing off right in the middle of a podcast.
Anyway, for you who haven't heard of Radiolab, it is a radio program that focuses on highly stimulating topics that range from the scientific to the philosophical - like parasites to the after life. I'm telling you, it's so fascinating you'll get hooked in no time (I know I am).
So last night, we listened to the episode on words which makes you contemplate on how it impacts the way we think and feel. And in relation to that captivating episode, flimmakers Will Hoffman and Daniel Mercadante made an equally captivating video.
Did I mention I find Jason Schwartzman irresistibly cute? But only second to Zach Galifianakis. You can find more pictures here and you can also watch the video of the boys lurking around the Harper's Bazaar office. Go ahead, don't be ashamed to go full-on fangirl mode!
Smitten best describes what I feel about Lisa Brown's Spring Summer 2010-11 collection. It sure captures the airy, flowy quality that always, always draws me in. And the pastel colors make it even more lovely.
With all the awesome stuff that come from Etsy, one would think it's not only overflowing with highly creative people but their workplace has got to be a cool place to work in. True enough, their office did not disappoint.
Now, this is an office I would definitely love to work in.
A ping pong table in the office? Too cool.
I'd love to settle in one of these workstations.
This has got to be my favorite - I am in love with those doors!
Thanks to Lifehacker for the sneak peek. See more of the Etsy office here.
When D says "You've got to see this!" and won't stop bugging me about it, there's a pretty good reason why he relentlessly insists on it. He was eager to show me a link that was shared by a friend on Facebook.
And when I saw it, my jaw dropped. What do you say when you see something like this? I mean seriously, how do you begin to describe this?
