The food of Greece (or what we ate)

Travelling with companions who take mealtimes very seriously is a blessing, since I'm such a piggy. The recent visit to Greece yielded meals of cheese, Greek salad and seafood. I don't know if it was just the places we visited (read: touristy) or whether Greek cuisine is really pretty much that, I did find the food a little samey-samey after a while. While really delicious, I was glad to go back home and have a bit more variety.

First lunch in Santorini!

Baked cheese

Hoummus with some very delicious pita

When in Greece, you eat Greek salad. Of course. I must have eaten by body weight in feta while in Greece.


Deep fried tomato balls. Absolutely delicious

Grilled octopus


Breakfast time! We went to this lovely crepe cafe twice for their lovely crepes, waffles and freshly squeezed juice. Heaven.

Cat biscuit! Ah, that's Greek yogurt - officially my favourite breakfast food now.

Prawns were very fresh

Haloumi and tzatziki dip

Cocktails while watching the sunset

Warm bread with olive paste.

Grilled seabass - a fish that was consumed throughout the trip

PS We also consumed a lot of gelato and baklava. Sadly, no pictures as I was too busy guzzling them.

A change will do you good

Yep, that's a spanking big new header there. Perhaps a little too big - I'm playing around with a new and wider format for the blog, which will allow me to post larger photos. I'm still not completely happy with the new header, and might be playing around for a bit.

In the meantime, I've started a Tumblr blog to be able to quickly chuck things I fancy in. Not sure how long I'll stick with it, but I'll give it a go.

Update: New header design complete! Those scrumptious desserts are a platter the waitress tried to tempt us with during brunch a couple of months ago at Aubaine. Here's the full image:

Jeffrey Campbell shoes

I've been reading quite a bit about Jeffrey Campbell shoes on blogs, and was curious about them. Are they really that comfortable? Would love to get a pair to test that out. It's so difficult to find good-looking heels that are comfortable.

My favourite room in the V&A

I'm very pleased at being able to make it to the V&A to catch the last day of the Telling Tales exhibition this afternoon. While there, I had to visit my favourite section - the Fashion room. Ah, such beautiful clothes.

Last 3 pictures from the Future Fashion Now exhibition. Some very interesting pieces. You really need to go up close to see the details.

Ballet love

Ah these make me miss my ballet days. Cade Martin has a beautiful way of presenting his subjects. I wonder where I can get a print of the first photo - that's my absolute favourite.
