interesting topic. Ill go through my archive, maybe ill find something fitting. Or I find something to take in the next weeks.

Bonita, the website is back again. Still have the trouble with creating the gallery more quickly. Maybe Boyo can help with the script? I posted in the Computer forum, but no response yet.

Worry not, Heike, with a large enough bribe, I think we can get Boyo to the rescue

I'm afraid I wouldn't be much use with the script, but if you like I can make another youtube video.

Kat, you do have choices You can post up to 3 images by Mr. kat (and give him the credit). Or you can start taking pictures now. Submission deadline is more than 3 weeks away, there's plenty of time.

Ok, I'm gonna start with this one then.

If you're bored with eggs...



I took this photo of herring's rollmop before our family's Easter breakfast last year. You don't have to eat only those nice little decorated eggs on that particular day, do you?

My first entry: Sushi voters

This photo was taken last year in Jakarta. I was eating sushi with my friends a couple of days after the presidential election in Indonesia. My friends showed their purple inked pinky, a sign that they had voted.

And I said what about breakfast at Sbarro's...

Normally my breakfast consists of an espresso and a piece of toast. But when you have a long day ahead of you and you won't be able to stop for lunch, you just need something a bit more nutritious. Not to mention that it tastes damn good.



Food for thought

I have this really big book on the history of music. It's 1500 pages at least, with quite small print too. It's written in a very philosophical style and really makes you think. Best part about it is that it opens up to reveal a bottle of scotch and three shot glasses!



The most famous restaurant in the world

Most restaurants think that being listed with 3 stars in the Michelin guide is what it takes to become famous. Sometimes though it just takes luck. When the Seinfeld show needed a shot of a 'generic restaurant', one of the producers just happened to live right across the street from Tom's restaurant in New York. And suddenly the small neighborhood restaurant went from a dozen visitors a day to being viewed by 20 million people a week. If that isn't food for thought then what is?
