Still Life Painting

Years ago, i used to dabble in painting. My parents encouraged my passion and bought me an easel and some nice acrylic and oil paint sets. I admire Degas, Monet and Renoir. I even joined Metrobank's painting contest (I just forgot what year, but I know I still have the certificate somewhere). Whoa! Food post?

Fast forward Saturday morning. Daughter wanted to eat the fragrant pears that I bought the other day. !!!!!!!!!!! An idea just entered my mind. I asked daughter to get my camera while I arrange the pears on a nice japanese plate.




That's one of the photos that I took with the fragrant pears as subject matter. Looking at it made me think of the still life paintings that I used to admire and can't replicate. I guess I lack the patience when it comes to painting. Hubby's a better artist than me, he even had a one-on-one lesson before with Ibarra dela Rosa. Daughter has potential talent also when it comes to painting. Me? I'll just stick to cooking and taking photographs. ;)


RANT:

We had some visitors for dinner and one of them brought Amber's Pichi-Pichi. Wow, Amber's!!! I love Amber's Pichi-Pichi and I can still remember when they still have this store somewhere near Cash & Carry in Makati. I also remember my ninong P, who used to buy pichi-pichi whenever there's a special family celebration. Lucky me, I just live across the street.

So imagine my surprise, my smile turning into a frown upon biting tonight's pichi-pichi. This is not Amber's! I don't know what happened to the taste. I mean, the one's available in the market tastes better. No kidding. I hope this is just a hiccup on Amber's part because I might not set foot in their store again.

Nanyang: A Kopi Tiam in High Street

Kopi tiam is a traditional coffeeshop that is popular in Singapore. Aside from breakfast, kopi tiam or kopitams is also a popular place for lunch and snacks because of it serves Singaporean comfort food favorites such as laksa and nasi lemak. Of course, a kopi tiam won't be complete without coffee and kaya toast pairing.

Nanyang opened in Bonifacio High Street to satisfy that craving for authentic Singaporean noms even without a plane ticket.
