7 Days: Summer Keeps On Sunning

The weather is beautiful and the temperature hasn’t dropped below 30 degrees since May.  Oddly for this time of year there has nothing but brilliant sunshine either.  So seeming that I am sitting at my desk sunburnt and eager to get back out into the heat, I thought I would post the next 7 days…

7 Days: Let’s Push Things Forward

Life is such a busy place to be.  I promised myself I wouldn’t let this drop behind and I need to keep it up. Here are seven more days from Mid-June.

7 Days: A Return

Wow, I am still so far behind.  Been real busy and have about 200 unsorted photos from the last month or so on my camera.  This weekend I intend to finally do some bulk uploading and cover the whole of June in one blast but, for now,  here are the dying days of May and our return to Hong Kong.

Awesome Magazine Cutout Artwork


Noticed this on Neat-o-Rama the other day.

New York based artist Debra Hampton creates these intense pieces from magazine cutouts, ink and a few extras. 

More on her website plus exhibition details for those lucky enough to be in NY right now!

Strip Steak with Creamy Spinach Topping

Okay, I know this blog has nothing to do with cookery but a contact over at Flickr wanted the recipe for a dish I photographed the other day (above) so I thought I would oblige.  So here it is:  the recipe we sort of stole from some crappy T.V show we were watching the other day fo Strip Steak with a Creamy Spinach topping.

Note: This is nothing like the real recipe the steak chef did on the show, it was just patched together from what we remember of it with added garlic…because it’s the best thing in the world! I don’t do quantities because I never pay attention to them in other people’s recipes anyway, so just use your best judgement.


  • Steak (any will do, the leaner the better)
  • Double Cream
  • Olive Oil
  • Fresh Baby Spinach (not frozen!)
  • Baguette
  • Butter/Margarine
  • Garlic
  • Ground Black Pepper
  • Lemon
  • Beer (or your choice of beverage)


– Open Beer (or other beverage), take a swig.
– Continue on a regular basis until can/bottle/keg is emptied.
– Begin Cooking

The Steak :

– Brush (or in our case…smother) the steak with crushed garlic and olive oil.
– Coat the whole steak in ground black pepper.
– Give it a quick blast in a griddle pan to your liking. (If you like you steak super rare consider giving it an extra minute or two, or it will just make the bread soggy)
– Take it out to cool, then cut it into strips wide/long enough to fit onto sliced french bread (Don’t put it on yet though).


– Place double cream in saucer and heat on low/medium
– Add butter, a squeeze of lemon
– Add anything else you feel like throwing in (garlic perhaps?)
– Add spinach (raw, don’t bother boiling it first)
– Continue to heat until it thickens up a little


– Chop up your baguette into slices
– Put a little strip of steak onto each slice and top with a little bit of the spinach (don’t go too wild with the sauce)
– Use any left over bread to mop up excess creamy sauce from the saucer

Easy as anything! Enjoy!
