good weather

Last week, in the midst of deadlines: a day at Antonio’s with Studio Dialogo. Wonderful place, beautiful food, crazy company!

strawberry balsamic slush

seafood dumpling in tomato soup, topped with parmesan

Antonio’s organic mesclun salad, bleu d’auvergne crumbled, glazed walnuts, dried currants & cranberries w/ raspberry vinaigrette

Antonio’s grows their own greens :)

homemade ravioli w/ veal cheeks & goat cheese, creamed tartufo

panfried free-range quail with armangnac-grape jus, truffle mashed potato with goose liver foam

This was so good!!!

palette cleanser: watermelon calamansi sorbet

lambloin, blue cheese and passion fruit, on red cabbage, with potato gratin

We ordered different desserts. I had the panna cotta sampler. Very good, also.

also in the photo, spicy chocolate ice cream on meringue tartelette, passion fruit pavlova, and Felchlin Maracaibo chocolate terrine with double cream and roasted pistachio

roamed around the place a bit before leaving and found this giant bowl filled with bougainvillas

It was a good Friday!

Finally got to finish reading this too.

It was okay. But I especially love the illustrations and how they quietly fit the story somehow.

and a little WIP, testing out new paint. I got some bottles of Ecoline liquid watercolor a while back. They’re really vibrant and a little of the stuff goes a long way. Good buy.

 June’s almost at an end! Ang bilis ng oras wow.
