oktoberfest

it looks like SO much fun! photos from the big picture.

my sister-in-law is german, and her entire family & all her friends came from germany to south africa for their wedding, and i have never ever seen anyone drink like the germans can. and not fall down drunk either, they just keep going and going. they were like the energizer bunnies of drinking and revelry. in fact, the wedding was a 3 day affair in probably the hottest february weather i have ever experienced, and while i was lying in the shade somewhere fanning myself, the germans were sitting in the full on sun going lobster red and drinking beer and wine like it was going out of fashion.

that’s what i imagine oktoberfest to be like!

flat white

A flat white is a coffee beverage prepared by pouring the creamy steamed milk from the bottom of the jug over a single shot (30ml) of espresso, it is most commonly found in New Zealand and Australia.

this is how i like my coffee (for future reference). the foam has to be so thick and creamy, that when you drop a sugar cube into it – it doesn’t sink. none of this bubbly watery foam on top of tepid filter coffee crap (no thanks, mugg ‘n bean).

speaking of coffee, i love the look of this australian run coffee bar in london called milk bar, done by an australian design company called a friend of mine. ‘milk bar’ is an aussie term for corner shop – somewhere you run to for a litre of milk and perhaps a loaf of bread. funnily enough, they have another coffee place in the same neighbourhood called flat white – both are top rated for their coffee & atmosphere.

steri stumpie

steri-stumpie

first steri stumpie billboard ever, how classic! for those non-afrikaans speakers, the headline reads “we flavour milk”. simple, to the point – i like that. i would have loved to drink my steri stumpies from glass bottles, too – industry people take note. strawberry geur for me, please.

last suppers

last-suppers

A series of photographs documenting former Death Row prisoners’ requests for their last meal before execution.

what would you have? i think haagen-dasz is a great idea (banoffee flavour, thanks) + a giant bag of plain m&m’s… and my mom’s macaroni. i’m quite intrigued by the one onion, 2 cokes & pack of chewing gum request. wonder if the onion was cooked. also impressed by all the fresh fruit… mother nature’s bounty huh.
