Meatballs

Meatballs – one of the most common dishes in Swedish homes through the ages. And perhaps the one that is best known outside Sweden’s borders.

Singapore sling

The Singapore sling – one of the things that’s connected to Singapore that everyone has to try when visiting. It’s fruity & herbaceous – a strong drink that will sneak up on you.
It was said to have been created at Raffles Hotel at the turn of the 20th century by bartender Ngiam Tong Boon.

Daily inspiration, personage

One of my “idols” from when I was young, a long time ago, was Buster Keaton. I realise that this might be an odd post amidst all home furnishing, fashion, food & outdoor posts. Buster was an American comic actor & was best known for his silent movies. He had a deadpan look – no matter in what situation he ended up. I don’t think that Buster Keaton was his real name but that wasn’t important – his performance made an impression on me. I think his era was around 1920 – 1935 maybe, when he was productive & recognised for his talent as actor. One of his movies was The General & around 2000 this film was ranked as the 15th best of all times. He disappeared out of my life, when I got older but I never forgot his expression or his performance. Comic but in a sad way!

I stumbled upon this image recently which reminded me about my upbringing which he was part of, in some way – thanks to my father who was a big admirer.
