Foodwork by BKK BROS

I have followed an artist BKK BROS for awhile now. His new series of work called Foodwork, a bunch of deserts and snacks with cute little faces, is especially my favorite.

BAUBLE BOX by Kelly Wearstler | What I want now!

I been so obsessed over minerals and natural stones lately. I especially like them in raw shapes. What intrigue me the most is that they are always one of a kind. When I saw these boxes I just fell in love with them instantly. They are so perfect. What scares me the most is probably the price....

Sugar rock chair

Sugar rock chair made from gunmetal tubing and laminated wood.  I alway fall for high contrast pieces. And today I'm loving this contrasting combination of soft curve and hard metal.

Around the World in 80 Diets

Photographer Peter Menzel and his wife, Faith D'Aluisio travel around the world to answer the question "how many calories do you consume in a day?". See these interesting photos in their new book, What I Eat: Around the World in 80 Diets.

truck driver diet
Name: Conrad Tolby Age: 54 Height: 6' 2" Weight: 260 pounds “Those big trucks on the road with all the lights on them? Those are chicken haulers,” says Conrad. “I used to be on the road 24-7, 300 days a year, hauling fresh-killed chickens packed in ice. I’d leave Mississippi and haul ass to California. You’ve only got so much time to deliver or you get fined big time.”  After two heart attacks, both of them in the cab of his truck, and a divorce back in Mississippi, Conrad now travels with his best friend and constant companion, a five-year-old shar pei dog, named Imperial Fancy Pants, who gets his own McDonald’s burger and splits the fries with Conrad. 

a qat dealer'd diet
Name: Ahmed Ahmed Swaid Age: 50 Height: 5' 7" Weight: 148 pounds, Ahmed, who wears a jambiya dagger, as many Yemeni men do, has been a qat dealer in the old city souk for eight years. Although qat chewing isn’t as severe a health hazard as smoking tobacco, it has drastic social, economic, and environmental consequences. When chewed, the leaves release a mild stimulant related to amphetamines. Qat is chewed several times a week by a large percentage of the population: 90 percent of Yemen’s men and 25 percent of its women. Because growing qat is 10 to 20 times more profitable than other crops, scarce groundwater is being depleted to irrigate it, to the detriment of food crops and agricultural exports.     

egyptian diet
Name: George Bahna Age: 29 Height: 5'11"  Weight: 165 pounds, George eats four to five times a day but doesn’t worry about gaining weight because he’s active; working out in a special room in his flat and at the private Gezira Sporting Club near his apartment.  The Nile River bisects the cacophonous metropolis of Cairo, home to 17 million people, many of them very poor. Although Egypt’s stock market and gross domestic product have risen steadily for the past four years, the standard of living for the average Egyptian has not. The government continues to provide food subsidies for those in need, creating a sizable budget deficit.    

Egyptian's diet  eggs with butter, fava beans, country bread, potato chips, feta cheese, soup, rice, black tea, etc.
Camel broker Saleh Abdul Fadlallah in Egypt is 40 years old, 5 foot 8, and weighs 165 pounds. His intake of calories on a typical April day was 3,200 kcals. His menu: eggs with butter, fava beans, country bread, potato chips, feta cheese, soup, rice, black tea, etc.

maize meal and milk. kenya
Noolkisaruni Tarakuai, the third of four wives of a Maasai chief near Narok, Kenya. She is 38 years old, 5 foot 5 and 103 pounds, and consumed 800 calories on a typical January day. She is photographed here with her day's worth of food: largely maize meal and milk.
teacher's diet gg, rye bread with ham, cheese and butter, chicken, potato with mayonnaise, cookies.
Ansis Sauka, a voice teacher, musician and composer, rehearses with the Riga youth choir in Latvia. He is 36 years old, about 6 feet tall, 183 pounds, and on a typical October day, he consumed 3,900 kcals. Some of his food: egg, rye bread with ham, cheese and butter, chicken, potato with mayonnaise, cookies.

soldier's diet
Curtis Newcomer, a U.S. Army soldier, with a typical day of food at the National Training Center at Fort Irwin in California's Mojave Desert. He is 20 years old, 6 foot 5 and 195 pounds; his caloric intake on a typical day in September was 4,000 kcals. His lunch consists of a variety of instant meals in the form of MREs (meals ready to eat). His least favorite is the cheese and veggie omelet.

chinese's diet
Name: Chen Zhen Age: 20 Height: 5' 5" Weight: 106 pounds. Although she doesn’t care for noodles or rice, a special rice roll is her favorite snack: black glutinous rice wrapped around youtiao (fried bread), pickled vegetables, mustard greens, and floss-like threads of dried pork.  Zhen and her friends eat at KFC about three times a week, something they couldn’t afford without the company’s coupons. Meanwhile, her father and grandparents, who live in a tiny apartment in northeast Shanghai, go without meat during the week so they can afford to share a special meal with Zhen on her weekend visits.     
factory workers diet
Name: Ruma Akhter Age: 20 Height: 5'  Weight: 86 pounds, Akhter is one of over 6,000 employees at the Ananta Apparels company in Dhaka, Bangladesh. While nearly half of Bangladesh’s population is employed in agriculture, in recent years the economic engine of Bangladesh has been its garment industry, and the country is now the world’s fourth largest clothing exporter, ahead of India and the United States. Dependent on exports and fearing international sanctions, Bangladesh’s garment industry has implemented rules outlawing child labor and setting standards for humane working conditions.    

chinese farmer's diet
Name: Lan Guihua Age: 68 Height: 5'3"  Weight: 121 pounds, Her farmhouse is tucked into a bamboo-forested hillside beneath her husband’s grave, and the courtyard opens onto a view of citrus groves and vegetable fields. Chickens and dogs roam freely in the packed-earth courtyard, and firewood and brush for her kitchen wok are stacked under the eaves. Although homegrown vegetables and rice are her staples, chicken feathers and a bowl that held scalding water for easier feather plucking are clues to the meat course of a special meal for visitors. In this region, each rural family is its own little food factory and benefits from thousands of years of agricultural knowledge passed down from generation to generation.

Lunchtime!

Black cod, avocado and crispy garlic tartines
Black cod, avocado and crispy garlic tartines
serves 4
3 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for bread
4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
12 oz (375 g) black cod filet, skinned
Salt
Black pepper
4 slices gluten-free bread
1 avocado, peeled, pitted and sliced
1 small watermelon radish, thinly sliced

Heat a medium saute pan over medium heat. Add the olive oil and the garlic. Cook gently until the garlic becomes golden but do not let it burn or it will turn bitter. Remove the garlic from the pan and set aside.

Pat dry the black cod and season with salt and pepper on both sides. Cook the fish in the same pan over medium hight heat. Once you put the cod on the pan, do not try to flip it or move it. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes on one side and then gently flip over with a spatula. Cook for another 2 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish. Black cod is slightly oily and flaky. remove the fish from the pan and assemble the tar tines.

Brush the bread with a little bit of olive oil. If there isn’t much olive oil leftover from cooking the fish, you could even use that oil. It has a lot of flavor. Assemble the tartines by toping bread with avocado slices, crumbled up fish, crispy garlic, watermelon radishes and some micro greens (optional). Another pinch of black pepper and a little bit of the leftover oil from cooking the garlic.

Werewolf Cat!

There’s a new breed of cat silently lurking in the moonlight: the Lykoi, or Werewolf Cat. This a real “up-and-coming” breed of cat that’s being developed by a group of breeders who initially worked with hairless cats. Their appearance may be slightly off-putting, but there really is no reason to fear these wolf-like kitties. They’re characterized by a lack of hair surrounding their eyes, nose, ears, and muzzle, with a patched coat on the rest of the body.
