Since I'm going to Borneo tomorrow, I thought I should get with it and buy a decent camcorder. I want to do a good amount of filming there, and Im sick of putting out half-assed grainy videos. I want the youtube stuff to look way better.
I need to get one for this summer anyways, so I might as well do it here where the prices are lower and there is no sales tax. And also, they always through in sweet freebies like bags and tripods and sometimes an extra memory card or battery. Lots of competition over here.
If you are ever coming over this way, think about holding off on any electronic purchases until you arrive. There are some really good deals to be found. ****Word to the Wise**** Head for the Mong Kok area of Kowloon.
I also get all of my housewares over here. I bought all these great wooden spoons for 50 cents each, and while in Cambodia I bought 3 large bamboo bowls and 5 coconut cups for $30. Usually in the USA one bamboo bowl will cost around $35-$40. There are also great options for nice chopsticks and place settings. Its pretty decent.
(Friends back home reading this...IGNORE EVERYTHING I JUST WROTE...I FOUND NOTHING WORTHWHILE TO BRING HOME TO YOU AS A GIFT...)
There is no tax or tip in HK either...what you see on the menu is what you pay. STUNNING. What a concept, right?
I think about what I pay in NY to go out to eat, and now I cringe. One dessert at Pure Food and Wine could buy me 50 wild coconuts in Cambodia. I wish I were joking.
After one hour of online research, I decided to check for the Panasonic SDR-H200 or the Canon HG-10. Both have great reviews...we'll see what happens.
Here's a pic from Cambodia...a person could make a career just taking pics of flowers.
They fold the pedals back...so cool.
Oh right...this is supposed to be about raw food...what did I eat today?
Breakfast was a coconut smoothie blended with those purple flowers I picked yesterday. WONDERFUL TASTE. Try this sometime. I saw the comment about the formaldehyde and coconuts. Sad but true. PLUS IRRADIATION. I am so sick of wondering if the food I am eating is safe. SO TIRED OF IT. I want to know the origins of what goes into my temple...as should you.
I cant wait to have all the fruit trees around and the garden and wild edibles... It seems like they are trying to poison us at every opportunity...so sad.
Lunch was a massaged green salad (learned this technique from Dhru ) with wild honey, olive oil, nama shoyu, and lemon juice. We threw some spicy peppers on top and ate it with chopsticks.
And just now I ate a head of broccoli with a superfood spread of: Hempseed Butter (only from Manitoba Harvest...support the organic farmers) Wild Honey, Vitamineral Green, and Cacao Powder.
I just spread a little on each floret and chomp away as I type. I love that mix, and if you have any leftover (a rarity...trust me) you can blend it later in a nut milk.
I love the experimentation aspect of living foods...no hard rules when it comes to making dishes...you really get to play around with it.
Dont forget to make it fun! Thats why we are here! Enjoy life to the fullest...
