Pleasure at Restaurant

Hi, Friends, did you have a good weekend?
This week, I'll chat over dinner at a restaurant.

As we, Australians have many different cultural backgrounds, food and dishes are full of variety. You can go round a world on streets. Looking at a menu is a great fun with family and friends. BUT foreign languages are tricky to make an order. Guessing is not helpful. Seek advice straight from a waiter or a waitress is the best option:). Or "ini mini mani mo"?!!--good luck! (*"Ini mini mani mo" is a kids song to choose something from more than 2.)

I love any dishes.
Observing cooking is another fun. It's a culture. Skilled chefs and workers techniques are art. Sophisticated and elegant movements astonish customers and guests.
A most fun is bringing bottles of wine to a shop and have dinner with close friends and family. Chatting over stupid stuff and exchanging dishes are my favorite.
Great stress busters.
Nice food, good wine and familiar faces make us happy.
Only the "side effect" is the fear of a scale. Gulp...??!!

Lastly, a bit punchy joke.
During WWI, an anthropologist was doing a field work on cannibalism in a tribe. One day, the academic explained about the ongoing war.
Barbarians
asked him, "What will you do with dead bodies?"
The scholar proudly answered that cultivated people would not eat human fresh.


The answer upset the barbarians so much,
"How savage! You kill others without any reason!"
...may peace be on earth.


Friends, have wonderful weekdays!!

  3. Hello Sadami, thanks for the laughs. It is morning for me and I love a good laugh to start my day. Your paintings are wonderful and your cartoons hilarious. These blogs of yours should be published in your local newspaper for all to see.

  6. Oh, Sadami, once again you have me smiling and then laughing out loud! Smiling at the beautiful renderings of the cafe and chef and then laughing at poor Sadami on the scale after enjoying so many varieties of food :) LOVE IT!! This could be on a refrigerator for all of us watching our waistlines and instead of being angry we cannot eat that pie in the frige, we would just laugh at your cartoons and walk away, happy to have an apple or maybe yogurt :) Thanks, again, for always brightening the day.

  7. Beautiful! Love the chef in particular.
    Good food and good company is for sure one of life's pleasures. But Sadami, I have to ask, how was it you saw me in the bathroom on the scales? :-)

  18. Dear Pat,
    Oh, thank you and you, too, have a wonderful sense of humor! These days, swimming gives me more appetite. Nurses say muscles are heavier than fat. Hope I'm putting muscles.

  19. Dear Sadami,

    When I weigh myself tomorrow morning after a weekend of unrestrained eating, I will think of your clever paintings and hope I laugh at myself. Maybe if I stand on one foot, I'll loose a few pounds!!

    Yours,

    Nanina

  20. Dear Teri,
    Thank you~! Watermark has a long story. My "expecting" friend designed it a year ago. But computer hopeless Sadami could not use it. The friend had a baby and recommended me to use Picasa for an easy watermark, as you saw before.
    But suddenly, Picasa does not upload my work to either Mozila and Explorer. Oh, my goodness! Panic attached Sadami, but has started using Blogger's uploading again. It works. Now, I've learned how to put old watermarks by myself. Made it! Not bad. Looks more professional.
    Today, I go to a computer shop to check my computer.
    Cheers, Sadami

  22. Dear Juday,
    Thank you! Lively, spontaneous, free--I hear often for my watercolor. I'd keep them and develop all.
    Cheers, Sadami

  23. Dear Albert,
    Thank you! I know what you mean, but a scale makes me sigh. I walk much better and swimming brings more appetite. I'd believe muscles on my body, not fat.
    Cheers, Sadami

  24. Dear Nanina,
    Thanks! Yes, laughter in a healthy manner, not an ironical or cynical way, is very good for us. Good luck for your one foot stand scaling. Physics seems not allow an exception, but worth trying. You may find a new great mathmatical theory that could take over Newton.
    Cheers, Sadami

  38. Dear Francis,
    Thank you very much! After 1km swimming, I have a very good appetite and gave up "diet"! Certainly I'm putting on weight, but size for clothes are not bad. Mmmm...healthy muscles are on me?!
    Yes, a sense of humor makes our lives happy. I love it:).
    Cheers, Sadami

    Estimado Francisco,
    Muchas gracias! A 1km de natación, tengo un muy buen apetito y renunció a "dieta"! Por supuesto que me estoy poniendo en el peso, pero un tamaño de ropa no son malos. Mmmm ... músculos sanos están en mí?! Sí, un sentido del humor nos hace la vida feliz. Me encanta:).
    Saludos, Sadami

    My tip with scales: I always take away my slippers going onto the scales. They are so heavy)))
