To all you food lovers out there (yes, I am one and I shall always be one) – here’s a shoutout to steak lovers.
If you are in Northampton, go to Frank’s Steak House! I just came back and I must say I am well impressed – the staff is extra friendly, the food is absolutely stunning and if you don’t believe me, have a look at my personal pic:
I absolutely love this ad! The way the pony smiles as he’s doing the moonwalk! Yey!
This short animated film from CUC Anima (Beijing) has been getting some buzz in the past weeks, after being re-posted on Dailymotion. It won the Best Short Microfilm Award at the 2013 Gold Koala Chinese Film Festival Award. It is the second year since the festival opened the Short Microfilm category in partnership with Youku, China’s equivalent of YouTube.
The paper stop-motion film made quite a mark, reviving stop-motion animation as the video made its way around the world. The plot revolves around two men who fight to win a very attractive (paper) woman. Watch the innovative and fun effects the clever and talented minds behind Paper War have released upon us, and keep an eye out for some major kung fu action as well:
I’ve written an article a while back about lovely vintage posters from Campbell Soup, so I decided to continue the series with some Health and Beauty cut-outs.
Found this pic and it was so funny, I had to share it
I’ll probably go to Hell for this, but I think all the great ones are there!

We all know that they used to advertise cigarettes ever since they were invented (duh, first rule of marketing, if you sell it, do tell people!) and that only recently they’ve been regulated to appear in magazines only (and without any people actually smoking) and with 10% of the add telling you how much harm they can do.
Way back when, they did not have these rules and today, these adverts would have been banned.
I keep thinking of all my days in school and I’ve been asked by my cousin whether I have ever cheated on a test.
Yes – it was Latin. I had copied all the conjugations of the verbs and then put them in the plastic covers of my notebook. Easy to read, easy to cheat. Especially as I did not like Latin at all. The only thing I do remember is the lovely quote “Aquila non capit muscas” (The Vulture does not catch flies) meaning that a big man should not be concerned with small issues. Heh! I understood from this something else. A fly is always so small and so quick that no vulture can catch it. Be a small fry and nobody can crush you lol.
In college, our teacher was against copying so he brought up the official cheats. Meaning you had an A4 sheet available during the exam that you could bring with you from home. On this sheet, you could have written the most important formulas, pieces of code you could not remember, and if your writing was small enough, the entire college course that you could use as a reference. The coolest in the group would come with an empty sheet. I was not cool and I had very very tiny handwriting.
So, no, I did not cheat, copy or had straying eyes during exams. I guess my parents were not like this guy:
So – my question today: did you ever cheat during an exam and if yes, how and why?
