How to do art

This is not really food related, but I find this video very inspiring in how to keep on improving your art. Or any other skill.
Also I really like the art style. I would like to have these kind of drawing skills one day.

With this blog I am also practicing ‘art’ stuff, so I hope one day I can call myself an artist and put my art in a museum.

Thailand thoughts

Today we will have an interview with Lazy Pig. Let’s see what she has to say about her trip to Thailand.

So Lazy Pig, what did you think of Thailand?
It is a warm and humid country. The people are nice ; family of friends also treat you as family. It feels similar to my Chinese family.

Lazy Bear and me really enjoyed the guidance of Lazy Tiger, he showed us a lot. And very comfortable with the car.

The food is new to me: light, salty/savoury, lot of sweetness, spicy and sour. I also ate some interesting herbs… like this smooth leaf which tasted very sour, and Thai basil leaf… yes, interesting herbs.

The rice noodles are very soft, thin and sticky. It has a different texture than rice noodles in the Netherlands. These were more gooey and bouncy.
The street food is really awesome. So many choices… and the preparation is so fast and organised.

They are making Vietnamese fresh spring rolls. Veggies!

In Thailand they use a lot of ice in drinks. (They can handle the cold, in contrary with Chinese people.) A lot of drinks are made by filling a cup with a lot of ice + some fluid. Like ice coffee, Thai milk tea or coke. So you have to drink fast or else you have weakened your drink. Except for water.

Or your drink exists out of ice. I have had a lot of teeth freezes XD

Thailand has a lot of impressive temples and tourist spots. They really keep the sight seeing spots up to date and clean.

Remember the big Pusha? This is the inside. They are still sculpting it.

Good toilets with toilet paper. (Very important!)

I also learned something new about toilets. At public toilets there are water baths next to your toilet, which you can use a bucket for scooping water and flushing your toilets. There are also often a water sprayer/hose to clean your bum with. Just like a bidet.

The floor is also wet from cleaning, but the water can flow away...

I learned about some awesome artists from Thailand. The White temple creator: Chalermchai Kositpipat and Black house creator: Thawan Duchanee.

Thawan Duchanee. A lot of respect for all the things he created

Jetlag?
Yes, the first few days in the Netherlands I already felt sleepy at 19:00. The next morning I woke up at 4:00. I am slowly waking up later. Today I woke up at 6:30. Time to end this interview and maybe go to bed [20:17].

I saw a lot of fun photos while browsing my shots. I still have to organise them. I also made some videos of Thailand. I might edit some and share it here.. but you never know.. maybe I am lazy… Have a good weekend!

From tiny food to big food

small big portions-02

Today I saw this post on Dramafever about videos of someone making very small portions of food. It looks so adorable. He or she also cooks with a very small fire and uses mini tools for the mini food. I just can’t stop giggling, because of the cuteness.

Here is the video:

It’s quite interesting. A few weeks ago Bored Panda posted about Kim Clough who makes tiny sculpture food with clay and paint. It looks very realistic. But it is waaayyy smaller. Tiny makes objects interesting.

Just like this project miniature-calendar. Every day Tatsuya Tanaka posts a small art piece using everyday objects and small human figures.

These were some fun tiny projects to share.

But then on the other side there is also huge food or big portions! Like Yuka Kinoshita the Youtuber. She eats a lot of food every day and shares it with us. She eats a lot of calories per day, but still it is okay for her body. She had a video to prove her health. She is also a professional eater and regularly does Mukbangs.

In Gilmore Girls, Rory wanted to make the biggest pizza of the world. It wasn’t the biggest pizza, but it still was big…

Recently I am also thinking about why we have 3 meals a day. Why not more or less? I believe in some other countries they eat more often. What is healthier? What is better for a person who has to work 8 hours a day? I still want to figure that out. Also fasting is something interesting. Fasting means you will eat and drink nothing during the day and only eat and drink when the sun is down. Is that okay for your body? Any benefits? I wonder…

That was my thought spin share for today. Have a lovely day!
