I’m Angus- A Medium Rare to Medium Experience

A few months ago, a few friends and I went to try out a steak house on a long overdue dinner date. Not just steak at any restaurant but a big chunk of meat that’s the crown jewel on the menu.

Simple interior with quality furnishing to set the mind and palette for the meal.

I had an event the next day so the camera, lens and stuff were packed for the shoot had to stay safely at home. Hoping that my friend brought along his Canon G10-good thing he did. Now, we can get down to documenting the vein clotting goodness in the form of a medium done-ness worth 400 grams of ‘Certified Angus Beef Prime Steaks’ rib eye. The quality of the meat is so good that Angus had the catch phrase trademarked.

Home made butter-as creamy as you can get and the crab cake appetizer.

Oh, it was an experience. Can’t say that for many restaurants that serve steaks -where medium means well done and well done means nuked to dine with a chainsaw.

One very important advice before you go, bring a credit card along that’s not maxed out. Now, please do enjoy the photos from the G10.

Finally, the Angus Prime Rib cooked to medium perfection.

Just checking if it was really medium. Can't have top quality steak any other way.

A small portion of dessert and a shot of grappa to help settle the meal.

Happy Haunts…

Whats your story? Choose a number and fall in line...

A quiet empty space is a great place to sit and contemplate ones journey into tomorrow’s unknown adventure. Where details adorning the walls bring a question or two while telling a mysterious story of art and personality. It will inspire the mind and enliven a weary spirit.

Bring a book or better yet a notebook to jot down ideas and thoughts. Or maybe a few friends that don’t laugh like hyenas on a rampage. The walls reek of a creative meltdown so just rub on the whitest part to get the juices flowing. Whispers and smiles are encouraged.

A mixture of old and older the atmosphere feels of haunts from yesteryear. This quaint little cafe is nestled in one of the villages in Quezon City, Philippines. Sure, it might sound like another cafe destined to either soar to independent success-away from those overcharging, overhyped coffee fast food chains- or die miserably trying. Either way, not everyone will see the point here but please do email me if you are interested. The owner will be happy to supply you with an address. Van Gogh would have been happy as hell if he had this down the street.

Superb art all around. Don't analyze just take it in.

Last month, friends and I were warmly treated to a nights stay in a weekend vacation house (thank you, TC!). A stones throw from Manila, Tagaytay is readily accessible by a less than 2 hours drive.

A warm welcome to those who enter.

Totally relaxed by the nights stay and waking up to a beautiful, peaceful morning. All we did was pretty much sit at that porch with coffee in hand and talked til noon.

One night will never be enough. Now how ’bout a whole week-that would be relaxing =)
