New Year's Eve


We had burgers. No drama. No stress.

Rehydrating Maria


Vegan Dinner


Thick cut Aussie T-bone. iPhone 6 plus box for scale.

A proper vegan meal!

With our usual easy to cook risotto.

Hipster Shaun is impressed.

Duck Fat is Good Fat.


Many people skim all of the duck fat. I don't. Duck fat is the bees knees!

Is dis y we fat?

TV Dinner of the Day!

Window Shopping. Outside looking in.


The only thing we can afford here is Cafe Latte.

An impressive Breguet.

Capitalism. With inflated prices, they only need to make a couple of sales a month. In contrast to Walmart's pack em high sell them low strategy.

Maillard Reaction of the Day


Hipster Shaun gave the chicken an extra dose of charcoaling today. But it was still juicy inside!

A proper TV Dinner!

Hipster Shaun Stress Free Christmas Lunch


Hipster Shaun prepared a simple lunch typical of what Jesus would have eaten in Galilee.

Jesus would have ordered seafood pasta with octopus bits and scallops.

Jesus would have had a salad of beetroot, frissy, and the local feta cheese.

Then, Jesus would have a luxurious Christmas cake soaked in Rum.

Jesus of course could turn water in to wine but why bother when there's Bordeaux Rose from our favourite Jewish families The Rothschilds.

Happy Christmas!

Steak and Risotto Night


Stumpy supawvises the marinating of the t-bone.

Hipster Shaun chose a red from Castela e Leon to go with tonight's dindin

Stumpy is quite pleased with the spread. Unlike Hollywood movies, it's impossible to shag after this meal.

Pretentious Hipsterness Is Now in Las Islas Filipinas


Hipster Rags now proliferate in the Philippines. It used to be just Monocle in the 'third wave' coffee shops but now there's a whole bundle of food porn picturebooks hawking every hipster fad from himalayan salt blocks to small volume craft beer. Dati Abante lang binabasa ko with Blend 45 sa umaga. Ngayon single estate animal poop coffee na with Kinfolk ek ek ang breakfast ko. Shet, isa na ba akong conyo burgis?

Tisay. Our useless sofa cat. Only wakes up to eat and shag.


Thank Ramon Ang for the TPLEX


The longest bus ride I've ever taken was London to Glasgow (and back) and it took less time than some of my 2000s Baguio-Manila commute despite being twice as far. The worst bit is when the bus stops over to pick up/drop off passengers in bumfuck Dau. I used to do Baguio-Manila at dawn coming back at night and would fume whenever some fucker rode the same bus and wanting to get off in fucking Dau. The young kids are lucky that there are now nonstop Manila-Baguio trips. Moreover, the trip is now three hours short. Expressways are safer too as there are no pedestrians and tricycles.

The TPLEX is not as wide as the SCTEX but at least the surface is smooth enough that you can do cruise control and watch the inflight movie.

Hipster Shaun Cocktail of the Day: Vesper Martini


Hipster Shaun wanted a Vesper. It used to be made with Lillet but they changed their formulation. Cocchi Americano is closer to the olde Lillet.

Shaken, not stirred.

Buguias Strawberries


My aunt has started planting strawberries. They be awesome!

Weiner Loves Being Stroked in the Morning


We need to hoard Cubans because Barack!


His Royal Orangeness Karl Willem says we should save our stash of Cubans....

...because with Barack normalising trade with Cuba there might be a shortage of  reasonably priced Cubans!

HRO Karl Willem says we can always go back to sniffing Alhambras!

Paired with Emperador for maximum patriotism suggests Hipster Shaun!

HRO Karl Willem thinks cigars with Periquet leaves are better!

Make your own Business Class Cocoon at PAL


We really miss Cathay Pacific!

A curtain separates you from those foolish enough to pay extra for those seats. As in why??

I had the whole forward seats to meself. Yay.

Hipster Shaun Cocktail of the Day


A very hallucinogenic Negroni with a Hoyo de Monterey Epicure de Luxe Cigar for sniffing. Transports us back to humid post-siesta afternoons in La Union. Our young, taut, brown, and nubile bodies covered in playful beads of water, skinny dipping in the pool by the old tree.

Random Photo from The Nashman's Photo Archives


Another Zenit photo of a cyclist on Magdalen Bridge. I miss my Zenit camera and film processing. I think I will get some B&W from the Czechs.

Lobby of the Royal College of Surgeons in London. If you become a Fellow, you get to drop the title "Dr." and use "Mr."

HK Carinderia


Interestingly, Robuchon is the most affordable of Hong Kong's 3 Michelin starred restaurants. I like the counter seats facing the kitchen. It's entertaining to watch the brigade at work assembling your dish.  I like teamwork.
