Meatless Tuesday: Week 8

Holy CRAP! It’s all ready been a week?! My god. Am I a bad blogger! But I promise to have something much more entertaining than my weekly food journal in a day or two. For now, on to Meatless Tuesday. * Breakfast: Open faced “grilled cheese” sandwich: one slice of 7-grain bread, buttered, topped with slices of one whole vine-ripen tomato, sprinkled with Nature’s Seasons seasoning blend, and a few slices of snack-sized cheddar cheese, toasted in the toaster oven until the cheese is melted. A mug of full-leaf oolong tea. Mid-morning snack: 2 whole grain crackers (they’re like 2.5...

Lost on Pandora

Dances with Wolves in space, James Cameron even admitted that in his interviews.  And Avatar was exactly that. And I love every moment of it. Sure. The story is predictable.  And a little sappy.  And had been told many times before. But it was told with a completely different visual representation.  A seamless integration of digital animation and live action.  For the first time, the CG characters don’t look like they were fresh out of a botox clinic.  Their big yellow eyes say something.  Their blue faces had nuances that the entire train full of Polar Express or (from what...

Power of One

One week in Bangkok. One movie. One episode of a Thai TV novella. And I’m hooked on the one, super hot Ken, Theeradej Wongpuapan.

It’s all about the leading man, Ken, who plays a chef.  He was tasked to teach a superstar to cook because she wants to win the heart of a tycoon, also played by one of my favorite...

What is love

As previously stated, I am not a Twi-hard. I haven’t read the books, and I haven’t even watch Twilight until a few days ago on Thai cable at the urging of my sister-in-law who insisted that I knew the story before we see New Moon. Being a pop culture fiend, I did know that story. Going straight into New Moon wouldn’t be a problem. I mean, Kuri’s attempt at reading Twilight for the rest of us got me to know enough of the sap involve that I personally don’t want to get in on that crap.  (Thanks again, Kuri for...

Going Cougar

I am not a Twi-hard but I am willing to go cougar for Taylor Lautner. I haven’ t read the book nor have I seen the first film but from New Moon trailer, I am Team Jacob all the way, baby. Besides, it comes down to that Werewolf v.s. Vampire debate.  Who would you rather have, a vampire or a werewolf? Not counting Taylor, my vote has always been for a werewolf.  Why? Let me count the ways! He’s alive. Duh. He eats like normal people. If you can’t share my love for food, you can’t be here. He’s warm....
