TB.39 is now up at the OPi8 site. Food, wine, and meters.

Today I bought 2 new fry pans. I really like them. It’s getting that I’m really enjoying cooking (hence my new obsession with EAT magazine) these days. Right now I’m concentrating on adding new Japanese recipes to the stuff I already regularly make, like yakisoba, various donburis, nikujaga, okonomiyaki, etc.

EAT 12

Last week I picked up the latest issue of what has become one of my favorite magazines, EAT. This issue has the theme of Rotten, which also includes are favorite fermented foods. There’s also a feature on eating in Montreal (which has nothing to do with the issue’s theme), and I have to say that it really made me miss the city. I plan on heading back to Canada for a visit next Summer, and I already have a list of all the restaurants/cafes/bistros that I need to revisit while I’m there. I’m getting hungry already…


I am now officially on holidays, and I’ve just uploaded the fourth issue of GEISHA. To view it, click on the “G.4” icon near the bottom of the page. Enjoy.


Just a quick note to say that I’ve just finished issue 4 of GEISHA, and I’ll put it up tomorrow (Friday). Tomorrow is also my last day of work before the start of my holidays. Only 5 more Christmas parties to go…


This site doesn’t really seem to have any purpose, but I’ve been having an unhealthy amount of fun just moving my cursor around and making those bubble animals jump and spin around. You probably shouldn’t go there. It’s probably just me.

Scumbags in Japan

Oh, this site is gold, and the URL address says it all: scumbagsinjapan.com. This is how they describe the Shane English School: “Illegal contract conditions, trying to cheat teachers on wages, gouging its teachers and generally a not very nice place to work run by an arrogant 1970’s backpacking hippy scumbag with a U.S. cowboy western name.”
