Coffee: Is there anything it can’t do? I just read this interesting article on the website of Time-magazine about a coffee-powered car that broke a World Record this past week. Isn’t that amazing? In honor to that, I’d like to share with you an info-graphic about how to brew the perfect cup. After all it’s also important to keep your own engine running;-)
The New York based designers of Plaid Creative made this one. I really like the simplicity of the design. Check out their website here.
Today I spent three endless hours at the Immigration Department of Hong Kong to get an extension of my visa. You know that atmosphere when there are too many stressed people in an ugly ‘we don’t care’ space? Well that’s what happened to me this morning;-). I tried to make some conversation with people, but you had to stay focussed all the time. They could shout your name and than you had to jump up to go to a counter for more questions or forms;-). Boy, was I happy to go home and make this fresh banana/pear/cinnamon milkshake! Feel free to try it too, in stressful times;-).
Happy 2013! How’s everyone doing with New Years resolutions;-)? I bet most of you want to start live healthier lives in the year ahead. At least that’s one of the things I’m sincerely going to try;-). Maybe these smoothie-cards will help with that. I made a set of seven for Dutch copywriter Zinenzo. Zinenzo requested to develop a smoothie-cards-set with cards for special occasions during the year. They will send them to clients as part of their customer relations policy. I tried to make the recipes as fresh as Zinenzo’s texts are;-).
The orange card is a Queensday smoothie, it contains carrot, fresh ginger, mango and apple juice. The green card is a Spring smoothie, it has banana, pear, fresh mint leaves and milk in it. Check out Zinenzo’s Facebook page, you can find the other recipes and send the smoothies as e-cards (free of charge)!
Last weekend we celebrated the Mid-Autumn Festival here in Hong Kong. We had a nice forrest hike with some friends. Although it’s still pretty warm outside I noticed a fresh wind that seemed to come out of nowhere. Together with the late-summer sun it’s excellent weather to go into nature and enjoy the colors en scents of the season. Autumn sneaks up on you, especially in Hong Kong! This smoothie doesn’t only taste good, it also has the rich, deep color-pallette of my favorite season to come. Enjoy!
