Sahale Snacks Sing Buri Cashews

>> Thursday, January 21

Snacking healthy. Sahale Snacks Sing Buri Cashews proved to be another delightful discovery. It's a blend of dried pineapples, soy-glazed cashews, peanuts, and lemongrass, dusted with mild Chinese chili. You'll be amused at how "Thai" this concoction is -- I love the taste, save for one element it would've done okay without: the dried pineapples.

They stick to the teeth like crazy. I'm not sure it would be as good, though (if they took out the pineapples). Maybe if the fruit bites were made less sticky+chewy, then I'd enjoy it as much as I did the Pecan blend. I liked it, nonetheless. Sahale Snacks are always a welcome experience for my amateur+adventurous culinary palate. heheheh

They go for $4.50 a pack. Locally, you can find them at Healthy Options.


Printer For My Prints

>> Monday, January 18

It's the first month of the new year, usually an exciting time for serial shoppers (I appreciate the shopping experience now more than I did in December!). True retail therapy is when you don't have to think of a gift list involving people other than yourself(!) ...January, for me, spells markdowns, sales and special promos scattered all over the malls and my favorite shops online. It's when I spend (significant) time surfing the web for rare and irresistible deals.

Topping my list of must finds this month is a supplier for print material to support my photography needs. As always, high quality, discount printing is the way to go. I mentioned PSPrint before and I gotta say -- with their current (& very tempting!) marketing endeavors, they still remain one of my favorite online shops to check out for pro printing requirements. I took a look at their site today and they're printing rates are ridiculously low this whole month!

The reason I'm yapping about printers yet again is, this year, my to-do list includes having posters created for my photographs. I'd like to give family and friends framed portraits as gifts throughout twenty-ten. Not trying to start a fad, just going for some form of originality ;) There's also the yummy idea of having a desk calendar created featuring Erato's monthly highlighted images. The prospects are endless, most especially since my ideal online supplier keeps coming up with spectacular printing deals. :D

Oh & another project I have in mind is to finally put together my wedding images. Not necessarily in album form... I was thinking of organizing the photos in booklet format, to add an unexpected yet interesting read to my coffee table book selection... how's that for a "unique" anniversary present for my beloved bitter half, ya? heheh

Keep your curse from cupid© flowing, artists!


Craving for Crab Maritess

...getting a headache just looking at this picture

I'm so famished. Claw Daddy, Red Crab and Crustasia are the ONLY things on my mind right now.


Fred Perry

recognizing genius.

Frederick John Perry (18 May 1909 – 2 February 1995) born in Stockport, Cheshire, was an English tennis and table tennis player and three-time Wimbledon champion. He was the World No. 1 player for five years, four of them consecutive, 1934 to 1938, the first three years as an amateur. As an eight-time Slam winner, Perry is the last British male player to win any of tennis's Grand Slam events, and one of only six men in history to have won all four Grand Slam events.

In the late 1940s, Perry was approached by Tibby Wegner, an Austrian footballer who had invented an anti-perspirant device worn around the wrist. Perry made a few changes and invented the sweatband. Wegner's next idea was to produce a sports shirt, which was to be made from white knitted cotton pique with short sleeves and buttons down the front. Launched at Wimbledon in 1952, the Fred Perry polo shirt was an immediate success.

The brand, now owned by a Japanese corporation, is best known for its laurel logo, which appears on the left breast of the tennis shirts. The laurel logo (based on the old Wimbledon symbol) was stitched into the fabric of the shirt instead of merely ironed on (as was the case with the crocodile logo of the competing Lacoste brand).

The white polo shirt was only supplemented in the late 50s when the mods picked up on it and demanded a more varied colour palette. It was the shirt of choice for diverse groups of teenagers throughout the 1960s and 70s, ranging from the skinheads to the Northern Soul scene. It regained popularity when Scottish tennis star Andy Murray had it as his clothing sponsor; Murray signed with Adidas for 2010. (Wikipedia)
