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.

Royal Saigon Restaurant is one of the most popular tourist choice in Ho Chi Minh City. Maybe it is also because it is located at Bui Vien, which is the tourist hub in HCMC. And it was actually my friend who wanted to eat at Royal Saigon, I just happily tagged along.



Another Day in Paradise Dynasty

Paradise Dynasty has been a family favorite since it opened its doors at S Maison Conrad in Pasay City. Although the location is far from us, the restaurant was always the first one that comes to mind when we go malling in the area. Now, it has opened branches in Podium Mall and SM Aura Premiere.
