I don't know if I would call iPad the Jesus tablet but it is an extraordinary device. I no longer have to sit at my desk to surf the net. Now I can just kick back on my Eames lounge chair and have the Internet in my hands. In fact I am writing this blog entry on the iPad. I can also read the New York Times with my morning coffee, almost just like the old days.

Recently I invited some friends over for dinner and I opened a bottle of red wine: 2007 Wallace by Ben Glaetzer. It was really delicious.
I actually knew nothing about the wine when I bought it. I simply saw a promotion for the wine at City Super and it wasn't expensive. I just regretted only buying one bottle; a few days after the dinner party I went back to City Super to buy more, it was all sold out.

Recently, I went to see a show on Richard Rogers' architecture at the Taipei Fine Arts Museum. It was a good show and I will write more about it at a later time. For now I just want to comment on a piece in the show, a row of color bars done for the Madrid Airport project.
Rogers' bars of colors remind me of the bars of chocolates at Sadaharu Aoki's boutique.
Sometimes architecture is just like pastry.
