Shrimps and broccoli curry

This is the picture of the dish I made yesterday night for dinner. I love Asian food and I also love to cook it.
For this recipe I took inspiration from the Kerala style fish curry, that is more liquid and a bit less spicy. The perfect fish for this recipe is the Red Snapper, that is not popular at all here in Italy, so, as I couldn't find a good substitute for the Red Snapper and as Tiger Shrimps were on special offer, I used them.

Saturday, 14 January 2012 you are!

I have been waiting for 2012 for so long and now that it has come..I just don't care any more :)

I've been very busy in the past months, I've been away from home too, but I was also missing this here we are with the first 2012 post.
In the picture there's one of my cupcakes...I'm trying and inventing several recipes, for this one I used MASCARPONE for the icing instead of butter, well to me it was delicious!!!

Few years ago I joined the Swap-bot community, and my life changed.
I discovered new techniques, new crafts, new addicitions.
I met great people, I brought to life unexpected abilities, I started new collections, I got some incredible and unusual stuffs from all over the world.
Now that the 100,000th swap is running...I just had to join! I hope this will be the biggest swap ever and I hope that people won't flake!

These pieces are supposed to be vintage lucite pendants. I'm not sure about their age, but I must admit that they remind me Jem and the I can't wait to use, and maybe this time to wear (I wear my stuff almost never!)These colors and shapes are just amazing...I will buy a lot more of these pendants :)

Coming soon: mad hatter tea neklace :)

Necklace made with laser cut acrylic pendant, Japanese doll's miniatures with original Disney's design, glass beads, plastic beads,natural opaline rondelle

I'm wondering what's about that..

I took this picture during the vernissage of the Venice Biennale. It was June. This is an artwork of Urs Fisher, under the title "Illuminations". His work involves three 1:1 sized wax candle sculptures. The figures are self-destruct during the show.  In the picture you can see just 2 of the 3 candles, the third is (was?) an office's chair.
The impressive reproduction of "Il ratto delle Sabine" of Giambologna is probably still burning, by the way it was a 4 meters tall candle, but the "candle man"...?What's about it?I think it's over and I'm in some way sorry for that :(

Two months after visiting the Biennale I'm still thinking about what I saw and changing my mind every day about which was the best work exhibited, this is one of my fav so far, Urs Fisher is a great artist that perfectly understood how to deal with a temporary ad monumental event like the Biennale of Art: make something great, make something that goes along harmoniously with the space, make something that will wear out during the event. Great!
