HULLO. Yes, yes, I’ve not been posting. Mea culpa.
Between a major unanticipated job focus change following the expected new role for my paycheque job (them: “yo, you’ll be handling project “A” full time!” me: “wicked awesome!” them: “nevermind, we realize project “B” isn’t being handled properly, you do it” me: “but… this needs a 25-person core team… and that’s half of what out US sister company is putting into the project” them: “we believe in you! Here’s a BlackBerry. Oh, and we’ll need you to go ahead and… work 75% longer hours and most weekends…”). Thankfully it’s very interesting work and I’m enjoying it. So yeah, between that, the freelance work ($$!), organizing the national Taekwon-Do championship this year and trying to have some fun, I’ve to prioritise.
Yes, yes, I’m still alive. Today, I bring you another recipe. This is one from my childhood, something that’s easily my biggest comfort food.

In some ways, art is as subjective as colour. Taking conceptualization as another example, four different people can discuss the same term but mean discreetly different things. When one mentioned “tree”, chances are that all four are picturing a different tree, yet all are successfully discussing trees. With colour comes different emotions, feelings and memories.
Walking around with the camera again as the skies darkened.
The recent riots in the UK were, in my opinion, a disturbingly accurate glimpse at the state of mind of today’s youth. Not just in England. Everywhere in the industrialized world. The available reports indicate that armed police shot and killed a 29-year-old man. Recent Independent Police Complaints Commission statements appear support the family’s early comment that he did not shoot at the police. The early protests to bring attention to Mark Duggan’s killing at the hands of police triggered the animation of a subterfuge flowing in the undercurrents of people’s minds, one that has been evident but repressed for years.
