There are times when you just feel extremely lazy but at the same time entitled to gourmet food. You think you deserve better than cheetos or satisfying your hunger with mere instant noodles, and somehow you just read Paul Lafargue’s “The Right to be Lazy“. Yes, the bastard in you is bloating your sense of entitlement, thinking “Well, even if I’ll find myself stranded on a deserted island, or even orbiting another planet on board the L2 Colony, I still deserve restaurant quality food without going to the restaurant and paying for it. Nor will I work hard for it.” OH, SHAME ON YOU! But this is how I feel almost everyday so give me a high five! Continue reading Food for the Lazy Brat
Whether on a vacation or on a business trip, I make it a point to visit the local public markets to get a sense of what its like to really be part of that place.

The first molecular mixology event in the Philippines? Well, its about time we had one!
Our group and its few affiliates in the bartending scene in the country think that it might be time to introduce this concept to the people in the industry here, or at least those who are willing and have the means. The few pioneers would hopefully continue the work in their respective establishments, conduct their own experiments, and try out more advanced techniques on their own after the workshop. Of course the fee is no joke. That’s because we currently do not have an expert in the Philippines and have to fly one in. Continue reading MIXOLOGY GOES MOLECULAR!
