I Tested The Acer Smartphone: CloudMobile S500

Recently I was invited to a dinner by Acer

to discover the Cloud Mobile S500 smartphone. Refined design, featherweight and easy to use with an attractive price. Honestly, I’m not one of the kind of high tech freaks, even I’m a geek. I love computers, tablets but not smartphones. I use phones for calling only (LOL!).

Smartphones or I-something and tutti quanti are really not my cup of tea! Sounds weirdto you guys for a blogger! Ok. As Acer offered me a Cloud Mobile 500, I decided to test it (in my own personal way!!!). Not as a big technician (LOL LOL!), but as I a photographer. So I started using the camera of the smarphone.

And guess what: I REALLY enjoy it! I am so surprised by the pictures quality! I have not yet mastered all the applications that I use, but let’s say slowly but surely I get the habit of my smartphone (Android). You can check all my snapshots HERE. I didn’t do any Phototoshop, I just reduced the size and weight of these pictures, keeping the scaling of the different pictures formats.

This super light “camera-phone” (LOL!) with a big screen will allow me to replace my broken Canon Ixus for snapshots. So exciting! Many thanks to Acer!

Brussels: Discover The Northern Thailand Cuisine @ Les Larmes du Tigre

Recently I was invited to a press lunch at the Brussels famous restaurant, Les Larmes du Tigre, in the presence of His Excellency the Ambassador of Thailand. As usual: after I got lost (yep, I went to another restaurant, could you believe this!), I managed to arrive on time! After the  warm welcome of Mark Beukers, the owner and his team : ouch, I perceive that I forgot my camera (!). Fortunately, a journalist friend lent me her phone (thank you R!) and I could make these few snapshots. I’m nicely surprised by the result! I’ve been a few times in Thailand, never in the North: from November 15 to January 26, Les Larmes du Tigre, the Office of Tourism Authority of Thailand and Thai Airways have joined forces to highlight the cuisine of Northern Thailand. I discover this delicious cooking, combining pleasure of the eyes and the palate and so nicely presented and tasty. Honestly I’m light years of this boring endless trend of non stop fooding everywhere! Here are some pictures of one of the dishes on this six services menu. Photo 2: Kaeng Kung Hooe, prawns with curry from the north and mixed vegetables. Photo 3: assorted raw vegetables with an excellent eggplant caviar. Photo 4: Ab Pla, bass fillet grilled in a banana leaf with Thai herbs. Congratulations to Chef Apple! And while you enjoy your meal, you can admire portraits of the Thai photographer, Cholavit.

East Sussex, UK: Home Store, a store in the old and the restaurant Kitchen Home Store, in Hastings

If you are found of the “it was better before” trend, you will enjoy Home Store. Opened since January 2012 in Hastings, on several floors, this store will delight the regressive urbans, with old design furniture, lamps, dishes and many other usual and unusual objects (not vintage thanks! Pictures 1 & 2). A world dedicated to fans of Merci (in Paris), or A Vida Portuguesa (in Lisbon). The opening day of  Store Home Kitchen, the restaurant of the store, I quickly met the chef Alastair Hendy which is also the owner of the store. He has been photographer for 20 years and a food photographer and stylist for twelve years (pictures 3 & 4).

Home Store & Home Store Kitchen : 36 High Street, Hastings TN34 3ER. Daily open.
