Made Sarma‘s Blonde Macaroons for the NYC Rawfood Group MeetUp film screening event yesterday. It was a last minute decision that I didn’t have enough time to dehydrate them properly when I brought some to the potluck (taste fabulous already though, they were all gone in a few minutes!). But by midnight (12 hours dehydration) they were amazing!!! Better than any Macaroons I have ever tasted, and, do I have a thing for Macaroons! — funny, they never tasted as good as I wanted them to be until I tried this raw version… no sugar high to say the least, they are actually good for you (made of Almond flour, Shredded Coconut, Coconut Butter, Vanilla, Maple Syrup (does not effect blood sugar), and a dash of Sea Salt.)
The Film screening was for “Supercharge me, 30 Days Raw” by Jenna Norwood, quite funny, and it does touch many aspects of the rawfood lifestyle, if you are interested, watching it may help you get motivated.
For me, I started because I just couldn’t bear contributing to animal cruelties any longer (had real hard time separating all animals from my kitties as I grow to love them and understand them more and more), but it ended up being a really fascinating journey of researching and awareness.
This was my first time to a rawfood group meeting. It was so well organized by some really nice people, I even won a big bag of raw cacao powder at the raffle — never won anything in my life! Now I can make raw chocolate Macaroons
"Meet Your Meat:" Don’t watch this if you don’t wish to feel grossed out about your dinner tonight. I find information powerful, but I have no cause — I have no need to stop others from doing what they want. It is just very heart breaking to know these things, and also shocking to know how little we know about the world we live in…
This past weekend took my new toy iPhone to Aspen for the Aspen Ideas Festival. This is basically a post of how iPhone’s camera responds to light — if a subject is well lit with spot lights, it works fantastically — though it rarely happens in real life… For the ease of use and to quickly document everyday moments, it is quite wonderful with 2.0 megapixels.

Rob Rieman and the Dutch Royals :: Elliot Gerson – the master mind behind the Festival (took the snap shot without him knowing when he sat next to me… 8) )

Me with a $30 thousand Sony pro camera on fancy tripod (not mine, but how I love this sutff…) :: random well lit lilies
Some political discussion highlights of the Ideas Festival have been posted on YouTube (my non-political, no agenda concert didn’t make it there ) I was too lazy to leave the room to hear Clinton’s speech since I heard him during the last festival. But he seems to be a big focus of the video clips. Check out this Link !
While Robert was shooting (with my HD video camera) the still life fruit plate (belonged to his adorable wify Celine) for his experimental surrealistic expressionism theatrical short documentary, I was babbling in the background about the actual pineapple and fruit, this couldnâ€™t be funnier…
Filmed after the fund raising concert I played tonight at the Polish Consulate during the beautifully catered dinner. Robert is my favorite photographer/computer genius.
This is my first Flash video, kind of figured it out while riding in the subway last weekend…
I was waiting since last year for Steve Jobs’ big announcement in San Francisco January (rumor said that he was going to announce Apple’s support to the new AVCHD video format). Well, iPhone was what he actually introduced… Can’t say it was a disappointment, but now there is one more gadget I have to get…
