Hipster Shauntorialist


Hipster Shaun got a box. A red box. We love boxes.

It's new Oxford brogues! Yay.

It got a soft chisely toe. Very continental.

Front

Back.

Arabesque

The question of course is will it fit?

Hipster Shaun the cobbler inspects the fit.

Yay.

Flashback Friday: Les 15 Nits


Dinner for two for 2825 pesetas! Cheap. Also, there was a long queue to get in..maybe because it was in Pla├ža Reial. There were no online reviews back then but reading current reviews reveal it is either terrible or excellent.

Hipster Shaun's Dinakdakan


There is much conyo burgis hoity toity foodie patay gutom blogger nagkukunwaring journalist daw debate over whether you can use mayonnaise over pig's brain for Dinakdakan to be 'authentic'. Hipster Shaun is not so concerned  about this issue. Also, because this is the age of nasty prions due to the cutthroat demands of modern animal husbandry, Hipster Shaun would rather risk salmonella with the mayo than Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease with the brains. Hipster Shaun is also not overly concerned with whether this dish is truly 'Ilokano' because very close variants exist in the Iberian Peninsula. Haan! Awan bibiyang mi! We don't care if this is an Insulares or Peninsulares dish! We only care that you have to boil then grill the pigs ears for it to be called dinakdakan! Some restos, shock horror, fry the ears! Some would just simply boil it and stop at that. How fucking lazy is that! Kinnana apay dinakdakan issu nu naiprito gademet. Hipster Shaun will have none of that and requires that the meat be grilled! Only then can it be called Dinakdakan. 

This dish has to be served on Porcelata and not some conyo burgis plato na binili mo sa Greenbelt store kung saan ang presyo ay dolyares.

Maligayang Kaarawan


Happy Anniversary to the CPP-NPA! Ituloy ang laban! Pabagsakin rehimeng Noynoy-Obama! Kapitalista pahirap sa bayan! Kolonialismo, imperialismo, pasismo tugisin! Mabuhay ang Rebolusyonaryong Pilipino!  Sahod itaas, presyo ibagsak! GMO seeds pakana ng mga profiteers! Now have some Spanish jamon iberico and manchego, Greek cave aged feta, South African wet biltong, and Scotch. Ibagsak ang globalisation at cliche pseudo-revolutionary slogans!   Karaoke sa Holland para sa politburo sagot ng buwis ng mga mangagawang Dutch! Come one come all! Magsasaka at mangingisdang Pinoy kusang nag-aambag para sa revolutionary tax.

Resoled Grensons


The Grensons have been resoled by a French cobbler. The shoes were soaked by the great Habagat storm of 2012. This is why you get Goodyear Welted shoes, they can be easily recycled by a competent shoemaker.

Four times at least (as I recall), I tried to open the wrong flat, forcefully trying to get my key into the lock. All the hallways and stairwells are identical in the housing estate in that precise and efficient German fashion. After a night out getting lubricated with the typical 1 liter beer steins it can get all so disorientating. I got the shock of my life when my door was sealed off by the Polizei before realising "Shit, I'm in not just in front of the wrong door, I'm also in the wrong building."

Hipster Shaun has no problem with Bauhausing.

Shoe Shining


Our shoes were really manky that Hipster Shaun took it upon himself to clean and rejuvenate the swathes of dead cow.

Hipster Shaun stripped off old polish from the shoes, applied leather conditioner, and then rubbed in shoe cream using the olde spit and shine method. (Spit substitute = the most overpriced glacial water found in the conyo burgis store)

Hipster Shaun is knackered but happy with the result.
