Driving through Sunset from an advance screening of Star Trek: Into Darkness, I got attracted to the interesting pattern in this door, only to find out what lies behind it is something more intriguing. Some call it fetish, a different psychological “pattern”, maybe unusual, or something into the dark.

Well, I have six in two days. Hamburger Ice Cream @ Scoops. Green Tea KitKat. Chlorella Granules.Shrimp with Sauce in a Tube. Chocolate Beer. And a Uniwolf with leopard fur along Abbott Kinney Blvd.
I volunteered as a docent at yesterdays Venice Home and Garden Tours and was lucky enough to be assigned to this beautiful house (#6). Directly from above, here are the structural stairs at the Bricault House on Brooks Avenue in Venice, CA. Though the vertical garden is a more popular feature of this well published green living space, for me the stairs that connects all three levels is the heart of the house.
Thank you homeowners for opening your home this year.

Here chicken, chicken, chicken… When you call, they will come, and today was no exception. I started my day with chicken karaage bowl with sugar and vinegar sauce. Midday, our inhouse chef made some popcorn chicken with spicy ranch dip, in honor of National Ranch Dressing day. Dinner was at Versailles, and I ended up getting their famous garlic chicken with plantains. Of course, I come home and my friend dropped of Chicken in Ginger broth. I love chicken!

When I travel, there are a few things that I do as part of my cultural discovery. Art scene, local shopping and traditional food. Originally from Spain, the suckling pig or “lechon“, is the king of feasts. Usually served during holidays and special occassions, a whole roasted pig is an integral part of the feast, most especially the Filipino culture.
Or should I say Plentiful, MD? Fried oysters, fried chicken, steamed shrimp, crab balls and fruit plate, for decor probably.
Color brings life and beauty, even to the dirty and ugly alleys of LA.

For some unknown reason, dinner tonight reminded me of the Three Stooges
. Hungarian Goulash with spaetzle noodles, Weinerschnitzel with braised red cabbage and for dessert, cupcakes from newly opened Georgetown Cupcakes
. The goulash was rich and excellent with paprika; the cutlet tender and huge; and the cupcakes, sweet at $2.75 each. They felt odd while I prepared the dinner table, but at the end they complemented each other well.
