Odaïba Aquacity photo Roberto. This statue of Liberty is not in NYC it's in Tokyo. The first time I went to Tokyo, it was the last century, the XXth tho, tokyoïtes how frenchies call the hugest city in Japan denizen, had no place to go on weekends near the sea. Odaïba was created from nothing it's 100% artificial but you can surf, sunbathe on a sand beach, it's an in-town micro resort. The surprise next to futuristic looking buildings surely i s this statue which I founf very "exotic" there. The titke if ly post is about travelling and french sayings, travels make the youth, rolling stone gets no

a moment of skill ! Yes writing is so posh now everyone is texting it's banal though. "filling up my ink pen" Un luxe à porter de main. It's the perfect french colloquial to say true luxury is within our reach, considering a Montblanc pen is the equivalent of an Aston Martin, a pen~a car! You may want to be starting with an ink pen from Montblanc it's a good start, the pen is gold and platinium sure you have to learn about how to manipulate the ink pump in the ink pot, how to wash your pen at least 2 to 4 times a year depending of the use, but it's worth it, mines are engraves with initials. photo Roberto

I do have sympathy for the model falling on the runway doing her job which is kind of dumb actually but I do not have any for the brand.
Fashion Week, show devant! Yes, every good capital has its own now, actually it's not only the few fashionistas that are concerned by those excentric garment fun house festivals, fabric and textiles industries are major players in the today econ world. Think of it, Señor Ortega of Inditex understand Zara, has recently overcome Bill Gates as the richest man on earth, with an estimate 85 billions $ fortune... thks media

Carnet d'adresse de Franco Maria Ricci ph.roberto
today we are missing the "charm" of the real address book. Mostly because of the social networks. As a child I would care a lot for my address books each year, called an agenda by frenchies, it may have two sides one is a diary and the other side the addresses. My books were bought boulevard du Montparnasse in Paris at a highend stationery and tobacco store near my HQ La Coupole the famous Deco restaurant. I would never buy the ones recommanded by the boarding school, never.
This one on the pic is in brown silk by rare book editor in Parma It. Franco Maria Ricci #fmr, #francomariaricci #agenda #stationery

there are not 50 years Singapore is an independant republic, before english people would have to rent it to malay people who called it Temasek in Bugis vernacular language. Since I've been living there I love to call it this way, Temasek. Bugis people were fishermen in the strait of Melacca. There is still a district in Singapore called Bugis and I like it a lot it's overcrowded and popular and you can find anything even good food and funny clothing #temasek, #bugis

XIXth century hanakago photo roberto the roberto fabris estate.
l'été j'ouvre toutes les grandes fenêtres, je fais rentrer un peu de chaleur filtrée par les volets de chêne sombre, ceci afin d'éviter le choc thermique des saisons froides sur les murs de ma maison.
ainsi j'ai pris cette photo d'une chambre d'amis contigue à ma suite, la chambre est très lumineuse, haute de plafond avec des lignes géométriques définies par les moulures régulières.
ce qui m'a frappé cest l'adéquation entre le panier japonais, appelé "le monde" & sa grande anse en forme de cercle parfait
au Japon, ces paniers sont traditionnellement utilisés pour confectionner les arrangements floraux ou ikebana, ils sont en bamboo précieux de différentes sortes, on les nomment hanakago, ils datent de la période Edô ou Meiji comme celui-ci, parfois ils sont modernes, mais ce qui les caractérise c'est l'incroyable dessin des tressages issus d'une maîtrise ancestrale des artisans qui tressent ces objets, et qu'on appellent ici au pays du soleil levant, des "trésors vivants".rmf.#hanakago, #ikebana, #flowers, #basketry

Question: why is it called slowfood?
Answer: cos almost every element comes from the next door food market nd will be cooked by you
Friends gave me a big zucchino from their garden. Yes, just one big enough to prepare à la provençale gratin for a whole family.
Recipe: fried onions and garlic in a pan with olive oil from Provence Alpilles, slice the zucchino in rather thin slices, keep them green so they stay crunchy but cooked, add some fresh herbs, thyme, rosemarin, zechuan pepper and salt plus grated macis, then pour the preparation in a gratin plate, whip 2 eggs with some fresh cream and grated cheese like peccorino or montasio and put in oven for 35mn at 6/7 | 180*C

photo thanks media.
This gorgeous though not so frenchy to me, estate of Bargemon in the Var district in south of France is the property of the über-exposed pair David Beckham the ex-soccer star and his charming wife Vicky Beckham aka Posh the ex-girlsband singer
As the late duchess de Windsor, a dowager of the happy few, said once "any good american dies in Provence" but not a chic brit as the Posh who's "château de ma mère" house just hit the top real estate international market for 2,7 millions € albeit the Becks paid 1,7 + 4 millions € for renovation of the french acienda aka a mas means a total of 5,7 result a flat minus 3 millions € for the english sellers.
Is it the beginning if the fall for the über successful british pair?

#pizza cum poatoes ph.roberto
hum that recipe is not a family one, in northern Venezia we don't have pizza, we eat pizza but the region food is about polenta more than pizza...But this one is simple and easy slowfood pizza to prepare, buy bread dough, fresh thyme and basilico, then work the dough as flat as you want, grate parmiggiano reggiano on it with the thyme, slice as thin as possible with mandolin or slicer the potatoes with or without their skin as you like it, is uptodate to keep vitamins and skin now, add some black olives, fresh thyme, roughly cut by hand the basilico leaves it's the way italians do, grate some more cheese, put to oven for 25mn on 6 a regular heat for a pie, pour crude vergin olive oil when the pizza is out ready. Doc my own version

banal dialogue: -where do you go this summer? -as usual I stay home, people who have homes stay at home during long summers! In France by example, the weather is rough but july and august may as well enjoy sunny days so why going away in countries where it's beautiful the whole year thru? photo roberto "Ma Bourgogne" (#south_burgundy is the top Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wine region)

I never leave home in summer time, why should I ?
it's generally the best moments of the year, where you live, sun, heat, water...you can do long nites out with friends, drink good wines or prosecco, eat vegan but fun, sip smoothies with children, you dress sexy, colorful and lite too, listen at dusk good romantic musics, why should we leave for where?
thks media for pic. I always like glassroofs cos they give more,light to interiors, not only that they ad another dimension to a lobby for instance. This one is a landmark it's Frank Lloyd Wright's capolavore, a state of the art piece his famous nyc guggenheim museum. #glassroof
