On the Lamb: Amsterdam 2012 (Part Drie)
The Bloggist Is Away

Whatever happened to our drunk bloggist? When last we caught him, he just finished touring the Heineken Experience. Although profoundly thankful for the generous rations of good Dutch beer, our bloggist discovered that his liver had the same capacity as that of a puppy’s. Our impaired bloggist, together with his girl-beard (geard?), Joanne, decided to

On the Lamb: Amsterdam 2012 (Part Twee)
The Bloggist Is Away

We’ve barely been six hours in Amsterdam, having flown in just this morning. We weren’t wasting time, though, especially because we haven’t realized how jet-lagged we were yet. It’s just a bit past noon. Joanne and I just came from the city’s best-known street market for our fill of the lasciviously good stroopwafels. A short walk

On the Lamb: Amsterdam 2012 (Part Een)
The Bloggist Is Away

Following months of planning, Joanne and I were finally in Europe. We may have over-planned – we left Manila with an exhaustive spreadsheet as our itinerary. However detailed that was, the info that we cobbled together for it was mostly abstract, leaving me with a feeling of uncertainty. The loss of control felt as if

Greetings, oral fixators! Episode 12 is here – or not. Front Cover There is no truth to the closure order from the sanitation department.

Fast Fool Nation (Part 3)
A Look at Dished Out Deceptions

Your happy meal is happy only because it’s had you fooled all this time. We have looked at Indonesia for the start of this series and followed it up with Spanish dishes. Today, we look at something bigger and redder… Our love story with China goes back to the pre-colonial era, in fact. Historians like

Fast Fool Nation (Part 2)
A Look at Dished Out Deceptions

If there is any sense to this bloggist’s postulations, your last meal likely lied to you. It bore false witness and broke the eighth commandment. The eighth, mind you, not the ninth. The ninth is: thou shalt not convert thy neighbour’s wife (though as to what the said wife is to not be converted to,

Fast Fool Nation (Part 1)
A Look at Dished Out Deceptions

Despite what the sidebar tells you, I am not a food blogger. Truth is, I’m not an anything-blogger. I sometimes like to think that I am a bloggist, but I cannot possibly write that down on a government form, can I? When I told my high school counselor in 1995 that I wanted to blog,

Food Porn: Vomiting Veggies with a Vamp

It just goes on, doesn’t it? It seems like we started this only fifty years ago. This will be a short precursor to another food-related series that will be totally unnecessary. You will find other more worthwhile uses for your time… but who are we fooling? Here we are, then, with food porn eleven… Front

Food Porn: Masticating Meatloaf with a Maneater

Gather round, you degenerate degustators. Stop that right now. This is more important than whatever you’re doing. Anything is more important than whatever it is you do, even this kind of third-rate ‘humor’ literature with an over-reliance on double entendre. Here is another future transmission from the twenty-first century, where the future’s so bright that

Food Porn: Searing Steak with a Sinner

My, how time flies. It is as if this little update was transmitted via electronic signals from another point in time (perhaps from four days in the future?). It doesn’t matter. Everything about this blog is outdated, anyway. What’s a little backdating between frenemies? And because nobody asked for it, here is food porn episode
