Who would think that food could look like a piece of art, more exactly like an abstract painting. All of the pictures above are creations of the Michelin three stars restaurant elBulli, which was run by Ferran Adrià and it's located in Spain on the Costa Brava. Some even describe Adrià as a food Picasso, I guess since they're both spaniards, so you get the idea of how important is the plating for him, but it is not just the way the are arranged onto the plate, it is also the food that is art. They make these like food papers, capsules of extra virgin olive oil and things that look like something but taste completely different. In Wikipedia elBulli is described as "the most imaginative generator of haute cuisine on the planet" and does a great deal of work on molecular gastronomy. All I can say is that the food looks perfect too good to eat and although I am never going to eat there I can only dream what it would be like to each such beautiful food.

The target of my desire.
pashley bike. I can see my self just going any where in it, riding the streets and my hair blowing. I would have flowers on its basket and I would just make it look like these I found on the internet. It would be such a better world if we all used bikes instead of cars. I am from a little town where people think that having cars is the most important thing in the world and that riding in bikes is for people who can't afford a car... riding a bike is also a choice, a choice to be kind to our world and stop polluting at least in a tiny amount, if everybody used one it would be a big difference.
When I lived in Barcelona I used to use the Bicing I know Paris has the same public transport which I think is awesome. I can't wait to move back to Guadalajara and start searching for this baby.

The Plastiscines - Another Kiss
I don't know if it was love or just Paris, but I sure don't want to know. In my mind you are all I need.
Amazing poster of the movie
Suzanne Farrell, an inspiration for Natalie Portman for the movie
This weekend I watched the Black Swan movie, and it immediately became one of my favorites, it is on my list of favorites for 2010. I loved everything about it, it is dark and has beautiful costumes. The music is of course wonderful since they are playing the Lake of Swans and it was just such a deep trip to somebody's mind. There's a lot going on in Nina's mind that makes me think that sometimes we are not really sure if all we know, do and remember are real things. Anyway I highly recommend this one and here I share some pretty pictures I found while surfing on the internet.
I have been just roaming around the internet this weekend (since there was nothing else to do) and I stumbled upon these beautiful watercolor drawings by this artist Cate Parr.
Hope next weekend is more interesting, I know it is up to me to make things happen, but what can I say if I live in a town where the latest news are always tragic and the hottest thing to do is drive around and pose for the social magazine... I rather see pretty things like the above.
