Sushi as an iconic shape

Saturday, December 19th, 2009

Apologies for the lack of posts this past month! I’ve been busy doing some pre-holiday travel to Hong Kong and NYC to visit family and friends. Now, on with the post…

A recent giveaway on NotCot reminded me of some links I had been collecting. First off, Japanese food is one of my favorite cuisines and as I was catching up with RSS feeds saw this Do’s and Don’t of sushi etiquette. A few things I definitely learned here!

Wallpaper has a review and selection of pages from the book “ElBulli: Food for Thought, Thought for Food”. (more…)

Of particular note are the great posts, advice, and information shared by Brian Ling of DesignSojourn. As a design manager at Philips Design in Singapore, Brian is constantly sharing insight into design. Brian recently decided to start a Designer Mentorship program that is currently accepting 5 mentees. So with that said, here goes my post in applying to be part of his program:

In the past year, I’ve been struggling with myself. What do I want to do? Where do I want to be in life? How do I get wherever that is?
