Today, i'd like to take everybody to a special restaurant I visited in Macau. The St. Louis Portuguese Restaurant. This restaurant has been open for nearly 20 years and it has managed to retain it's essence as a Portuguese style restaurant to this day. As we know, Macau has quite a long history sharing the culture of Portugal and China, the food definitely reflects this history quite nicely as it has become a unique fusion of the two cultures.
Macau was originally a trading port for the Portuguese as well as other Europeans. In the 16th century, it was leased to Portugal as an official trading port and then later became the last remaining European colony in Asia. Because of the long influence of the Portuguese, there are many people in Macau of Portuguese descent who were born and bred there. The food has also taken influence from neighbouring styles such as Cantonese, Indian, South East Asian and even French and then infused with the ori
Greetings loyal followers.
I just returned to my office and my assistant Vera, who is simply a natural wonder and a gift from the planet, informed me that many of you have sent transmissions enquiring why I have not sent any recent transmissions.
Well, recently I met this inhabitant of your planet...
This guy is freaking awesome. I swear he is the funniest person I have ever met. Everything he said and did just made me laugh and laugh and laugh.
This one time when we were hanging out, he said
glove and we could not stop laughing. Just in the middle of everything, out of nowhere, he said it. That dude is hilarious. We giggled for like 10 minutes straight. Then we got really serious for a second. We both realized that

Be Sure To Get The Right Kind. Always Buy Virgin Coconut Oil That Is COLD-PRESSED.
When it is extracted by using heat or the chemical called hexane, lots of the nutrients are lost, resulting in a much less pure and less effective product for both cooking and beauty applications.
Basically, it tastes great and is a much healthier option compared to other cooking oils.
Here are the specifics:
It is an oil, and as such it is expected to have certain fats. Although coconut oil has saturated fats, they are different when compared to others like cream, cheese and butter. Coconut oil has
Medium Chain Triglycerides which are metabolized differently. When digested, coconut oil is sent to your liver where it provides you with fast energy and has been prov
I watched the film "The Accountant" this past weekend and it offered a very interesting hypothesis, well not really hypothesis, but more of a generalized question.
The question was something along the lines of, "What if we aren't using the right tests to measure autistic intelligence?"
Since I can remember, society has been classifying those with autism in one giant group and that group has all been considered somewhat "less than" in terms of intelligence by many people. As we are learning though, that one giant group has a very large spectrum and the "high functioning autistic" might not be "less than" at all. In fact, they could quite possibly be considered, "more than" in many areas...
That is a very interesting theory the film touched on and one that I find fascinating.
What do we mean by "more than"?
Well it has been well documented that many individuals that are included o
A Journey to the ZOOM in Erlebniswelt Glenkirchen!
Took a bunch of photos since it is winter and all there wasn't too much animals out but still very cool!
There was an Alaska, Africa and Asia Exhibits. Got to say my favorite part was the Asian rain forest green house.
Well start this journey with this cute Snow Owl.
Just going to at it with putting photos up!!!
I'm not a fan of territorial borders. I know they are useful, sure, but I have no feeling about territorial borders. The borders and the boundaries I care about are the ones I choose and create to identify the community of people, places and ideas I like.
Don't get me wrong, I like local and historical traditions: civilizations fond themselves on it, mostly. It's just that I don't feel a bond to something just becouse it belongs to the place where I was born.
Actually, there is always a bond with the things and manners you grow up in. But you are not obliged to like it. :)
These paintings I did about 20 years ago show my idea of "singular patriot". A very utopian idea, I admit it. ;)
Pure water is the world's first and foremost medicine. (proverb)
Indeed. Listen to water stream, feel it on your skin, it does blow your sadness away.
Can we live without them? Respect the nature.
A few months ago, I decided to work on my first zine. It obliviously in honored to the freak zoo in my mind ;)
I created the animals using different scraps of paper (from old destroyed books, wall papers or sheets music).
I simply draw some parts of the animals and they begin to develop a life of its own !
In my zine there are 8 funny animals, each one different from the others. Alert: Their smile is contagious ^_^
At this point, we had 10 days to get across Mexico before meeting the owner of a work exchange in Puerto Escondido which our previous host recommended, and he even convinced us to attempt hitchhiking for our first time too! We figured a week would be more than enough time to enjoy the ride from the Yucatan all the way to Oaxaca...
Walking through the Yucatan jungle with my brother, eating medicinal greens and fruits as we explore Mayan ruins and wild nature, learning and playing the whole time!
We left early in the day starting from Champoton, with our minds set on hitchhiking all the way to San Cristobal. Since we love nature and waterfalls, we
At least, that's what they used to call me. Nobody uses my name anymore. I kill people for a living. Would you want people knowing your name before you killed them?
Please don't kill me, is far easier on the mind than
Please don't kill me, John. It gets personal at that point, don't you agree? I don't want to take that shit home with me.
If a client asks for my name, they're an idiot. I refuse to do business with morons.
I don't live anywhere. Always on the road, travelling from place to place. Wherever the jobs are, that's where I might be.
I keep everything low profile. Untraceable communications and payments transferred using a variety of digital currencies m
El Internet ha ayudado a muchos usuarios a comunicarse con otros a nivel mundial y es inevitable recibir todo tipo de comentarios, ya sea negativos o positivos, especialmente en redes sociales. La responsabilidad no esta en los usuarios que nos dejan esos comentarios, en realidad esta en las personas que se encargan de manejar las redes sociales de las marcas.

<달라스 바이어스 클럽>은 제86회 아카데미 시상식에서 남우주연상, 남우조연상은 물론 분장상까지 수상한 영화다. 아카데미 시상식에서 한 영화가 남우 주조연상을 모두 타는 건 꽤나 의미 있는 이야기다. 그만큼 론 우드루프 역의 매튜 맥커너히와 레이언 역의 자레드 레토의 연기가 빛을 발한 영화라는 뜻도 된다.
맥커너히와 레토는 에이즈 환자라는 걸 표현하기 위해 몸무게를 엄청나게 감량했다. 난 몸무게 감량하면 떠오르는 배우가 둘이 있다. 크리스챤 베일과 김명민이 그들인데 베일과 김명민 모두 메소드 연기에 능한 배우다. 그렇담 맥커너히와 레토 역시 메소드 연기에 능한 배우들이냐는 비약을 할 수 있는데 이건 이제 비약이 아닌 사실이 되었다. 그들이 아카데미상을 받았으니 말이다. 수상만이 능사가 아닌 극 중에서 역시 그들
폼페이: 최후의 날(Pompeii, 2014)
감독 : 폴 앤더슨
출연 : 키트 해링턴(마일로 역), 에밀리 브라우닝(카시아 역)
폼페이는 이탈리아에 있던 한 도시의 이름으로 로마시대에는 번영을 누렸었던 도시인데요. 이 도시가 끌어안고 있는 베수비오라는 화산이 폭발하게 되면서 도시 전체가 화산재로 뒤덮여 현재는 사라진 도시입니다. 인터넷에 폼페이만 치더라도 많은 사진들이 나오는데, 폼페이는 화산의 마그마로 인해 많은 희생자가 나온 것이 아니라 폭발 후에 불어오는 화산재로 인해 많은 희생자가 나오게 되었습니다. 그래서 자고 있던 모습이라던지 웅크린 모습 등 사람의 형태가 보존되어 있는 상태로 유골이 남아있기 때문에 문화유적으로도 많은 가치를 지니고 있는 곳이죠.
어릴 적 로마에 의해 가족을 모두 잃은
There's a great little story I like to remind myself whenever I catch myself working too hard or feeling like I'm not achieving all that I want to do in life.
It's a Mexican parable from an unknown author that goes a like this. Enjoy.
An American investment banker was at the pier of a small coastal Mexican village when a small boat with just one fisherman docked. Inside the small boat were several large yellowfin tuna. The American complimented the Mexican on the quality of his fish and asked how long it took to catch them.
The Mexican replied, “only a little while.”
The American then asked why didn’t he stay out longer and catch more fish?
The Mexican said he
Who is wise? One who can tell what will be hatched from the egg that has been laid. Not he who can see the future - that is a prophet. Wisdom is seeing tomorrow's consequences of today's events.- Babylonian Talmud
Some people are able to tell the future with incredible accuracy. This gift is born from an immense amount of time and energy spent in studying and watching the logical results of certain decisions. There is a reason some folks knew the housing crisis of 2008 was coming - they foresaw the natural outcomes of borrowing money that could not be repaid. They were able to profit magnanimously because of their wisdom.
Such is the nature of making money - we see it with our imagination. We hear of an opportunity and we immediately begin thinking about ways to create value from it. This is not done with our eyes. We see it in our minds, and create the mental images of what result we wish to see. The money we are able to earn is a correla
If Donald Trump does build a wall I want to be on the other side of it. I have been dreaming of returning to Mexico and have pretty much made up my mind. Here are some of my plans for the very near future.
This winter has been cold and really has me missing the warmth of the Riviera Maya, where I lived for 10 years and have come to appreciate its tropical jungle flavor, relaxed, friendly people and laid back vibe. A place where you never shiver from anything colder than a brain freeze from drinking margarita's too fast.

The soil is great here in Seattle and as a gardener, I love growing things here for half the year, but the winter half is so cold to me now that I can't handle it. I never used to get cold in the past but living the tropical life for so long has decreased my tolerance for cold wea
So I kind of tend to doodle during/in-between classes. Just being ever-amused by being able to upload images and by how quickly Steemit loads, like. Idk, I just feel like it’s way too convientint to NOT post the sort of random stuff I’d usually throw up on Tumblr, LOL
Also I don't really have a gig on my hands anymore so I’m kinda getting readjusted to having a little free time LOL
(Tho knowing me, I’ll probably start to get frustrated and go look for another gig before school's out, against my better judgement ¯_(ツ)_/¯)
Anyway, so I doodled this random blank-eyed ghost chick??
Also random shwoopty lines because (???)
Kinda liked the idea of some lines that would flow down her side with her tail… wound up deciding it was part of her shirt
This can make for an interesting combination at times. Sometimes, because of my dry, offbeat humor, people may not realize that I am joking, but for those of you who already understand my personality and lifestyle, you can probably make the distinction.
Often, like when I share a story about being a STEEMhead and winding up in a police car, I’ll tag it in the “fiction” category, just to make sure people know that it is not (completely) based on a true story.
