the visual harmonics 


esp color


of  @liamsaunt 


plates are outstanding.


some time ago,






I I took some Saturday classes in Power Tools etc


RISD  had an outstanding '' design ' academic bookstore 


a few volumes I got there are lost


but there were three books on Color


just a series of pages w 4 - 5 , I forget


color bars  , that were in harmony 


w the various computer numbers that gave you these colors


for desk top printing 


new then


I realized that auditory harmonic we hear every day


but its the same for visuals 


you can't just paint your house w 4 ''on sale cold(u)s '


on sale , you would be missing Color Harmonitcs


after all 


colo(u)r is a wave length 


same as sound 


do I wish I still had those books

Staying in good old Bundaberg for the weekend. Decided to try 'Meekak' an all you can eat Korean Buffet/Bbq place. 

Authentic? Perhaps not 100% but I've never been to Korea so 🤷‍♀️. Was fun, staff were amazing, wouldn't rush back but wouldn't hesitate if invited.

Thank you!


Last night, wide rice noodles in a creamy miso ginger sauce with pickled carrots, cabbage, herbs, and miso-marinated broiled salmon




Looks great!  Do you have a light box or something that you use to take your photos?  The lighting is always so even....

How do you marinate pork before grilling? Looks very tasty!

I don’t. A few minutes before putting it on I season with salt, pepper and sometimes garlic powder. The maple bourbon glaze is simply maple syrup with a splash of bourbon.

I do.  I have this: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B001B8G4R8/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1


I bought it about 10 years ago and it does not look like it is available anymore.  It folds down for storage. I have it set up in my small dining room, which is adjacent to my main kitchen (I have two dining rooms and two kitchens, weird house haha). I keep my camera on a tripod in there so I can just pop the plate in and take a quick picture on the way to the table.  We rarely eat in that room so it's not in the way.

Pork tenderloin medallions with marsala sauce made with MTG chicken stock, roasted broccoli (just barely crunchy at the tips) and new potatoes sauteed in butter.

(no photo, camera malfunction).

Tomato soup - roasted tomatoes, onion and garlic. Thyme, chili, some oats to thicken.

Rotelle n' cheese, using Modernist Cuisine's recipe, and some broccoli. For the sauce, I used cheddar and some odd ends of Mimolette I found in the freezer. The picture seems a bit light on the sauce, but trust me it was creamy and cheesy. I'm fond of this sauce recipe - it's super quick to prep, but it's been a while since I last made it.

Hello Indonesia


We visited a hole in the wall Indonesian eatery and the short of it, it is a far cry from the Malaysian cuisine which remains my Asian favorite.




1- Spring Rolls (non Indonesian)








2- Satay (non Indonesian)








3- Gado Gado








4- Murtabak










6- Mee Goreng (non Indonesian)









7- Soto (something)





Taste: 1/5

Presentation: 1/5

Service: 1/5

Cost: Cheapest ever




As they were out of any dessert, we moved next door to the Italian hole in the wall for a Tiramisu which they did not have.


However, we fell on a very nice surprise as they started to offer Fabbri Gelato !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yumm.

The Fabri Gelato is a soft Ice Cream which is churned on a set timer and is delectable.


They had 4 flavours: Salted Caramel - Aqua Vera - Chocolate and Vanilla


Of course I had to taste all the flavours and got the Vanilla one with the famous Amarena Fabbri syrup.  (Sour Cherries).


Score: 5/5











Note to self: I need to purchase this Ice Cream churning  machine and run it in the bedroom...... I wonder if the wife will agree?


She got me this last time:






Poor poor Me!
