Magritte at MoMA


There is an exhibition 'Magritte: The Mystery of the Ordinary, 1926–1938' at MoMA now. It's a long line all the time but definitely you must visit. He's so crazy! I mean cool!



Also Patti Smith was 3rd floor.

How happy visiting at MoMA easily! One of good things to be a New Yorker.

SALME Performance Group based in Japan



SALME
Performance Group based in Japan

I love this performance group. They are so funny, cute, passionate, professional and talented. Luckily, I got chances to have photoshoots with them a few times.
This time, we went to Coney Island to get shots for their new portraits. The shooting was so much fun. The weather was nice, people who we met there were nice and location was nice.
Usually they perform in Tokyo, Japan. If you visit Japan, you must see their performance!

Here their new performance DVD;


Unfortunately this is only Japanese. But if you speak Japanese, you should see Audio Comment version. It's super funny. I'm happy to speak Japanese.

Anyway, they are absolutely kick ass! Check them out!

Kanye West



The blonde girl was excited and shouted and blackout. But she was happy. Yes, he was so hot!

Trapeze



空中ブランコ。

ゆあーん ゆよーん ゆやゆよん。

中原中也天才。

A trapeze.

Yu aaaan Yu yoooon Yaya yuyon.

We have beautiful onomatopoeia for a trapeze in Japanese. 'Yu aaaan Yu yoooon Yaya yuyon' those words express swinging a trapeze. Do you have this kind of silent sounds in your language?
By the way, you should read this 'Goat Songs' by Chuya Nakahara.

An eggs benedict


ニューヨークに来たら、朝食は絞り立てフレッシュオレンジジュースとノンストップで注がれるアメリカンコーヒーとエッグベネディクトを老舗のダイナーで頂きましょう。
ニューヨークタイムズをバサバサしながら人間観察するのがおもしろいです。こちらはJoe Jr. Restaurantでの一品です。

You should have a glass of fresh orange juice, unlimited cups of American coffee and an eggs benedict as breakfast at an old fashioned diner when you come to New York City, I think.
And let's pretend to read New York Times and do people watching there. That must be so interesting. I had this plate at Joe Jr. Restaurant and it was good.
People do whatever they want here and let's see what's happening.

A delicious scallion fried rice



ねぎチャーハン。

ネギを大量に頂きました。なんとか新鮮なうちに全部使い切りたいと思って、ねぎ油を作ることにしました。
ねぎ油を作った後の中華鍋にはおいしい油が一杯鍋ぶちに残っています。これを活かしたくて作ったのがこのねぎチャーハンです。
まじ、うまい。
このチャーハン、ほんまにおいしい。
つくりたてのねぎ油に焦がしねぎ、ご飯とたまごと調味料だけ。
ねぎ油のうまみを最大に活かせたシンプルなチャーハンです。
チャーハンと真剣に向かい合っている人には是非お試しいただきたい一皿でした。

作り方

材料(一人前):
・ねぎ油(きざみねぎ、しょうが・にんにくのみじんぎりをサラダ油とごま油とオリーブオイルをブレンドした油の中で弱火で色づくまで揚げるようにほっておく。)
・しょうが(みじん切り/一片)
・たまご 2個
・ごはん 茶碗一杯
・塩(少々)
・鶏ガラスープの素(少々)
・ねぎ(みじん切り/ひとつまみ)
・しょうゆ(少々)
・こしょう(少々)

①熱々に熱した中華鍋をねぎ油でなみなみとならす。
②しょうがをざざっと炒める。
③たまごを鍋に入れて、油とよく混ぜる。
④たまごが半熟ぐらいの時分に熱々ご飯を入れて手早く炒める。
⑤ごはんがほぐれたら塩と鶏ガラスープの素を入れてさらに炒める。
⑥ねぎを入れて炒めてこしょうをささっと。
⑦火を止める直前に鍋ぶちに醤油を半回し程たらしかけて炒める。

熱いうちに食べる。
ねぎ油のうまみがなんともいえんうまい。

Scallion Fried Rice.

I got a lot of scallions. I got an idea to make scallion oil by them because I wanted to use them before they get ruined. 

After I made the scallion oil, there were some scallion oil on a wok that I couldn't remove. This scallion fried rice was made by a desire that I wanted to use this oil that I couldn't remove somehow.

This is fantastic!
This fried rice is amazing delicious.

This is made by only fresh scallion oil, rice, eggs and simple spices.
It is the simple fried rice which was able to make use of taste of the scallion oil in a maximum.
It was a menu that I'd like to let people who really like fried rices try.

How to cook

Ingredients (for one):

scallion oil (put in chopped scallion, ginger, garlic to blend oil by canola, sesame, olive until their color change to brown like fried)
2 tablespoon scallion oil  (put in chopped scallion, ginger, garlic to blend oil by canola, sesame, olive until their color change to brown like fried)
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon chopped ginger
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon chicken flavored broth mix
1 small bunch scallions, sliced
1 cups cooked white rice
1 tablespoon sauce
1 tablespoon black pepper

Directions:

Heat 2 tablespoons of scallion oil in a wok over high heat. Add the chopped ginger then the beaten eggs and fry until they are half cooked. Add the cooked rice and stir-fry until the rice about 1 minutes. Add salt and chicken flavored broth mix. Add fresh scallion and pepper and stir, stir, stir. Before remove heat, add soy sauce from side of the pan then serve.

Bon Appétit.
The umami of scallion oil is such an awesome!

About sushi



わたし、ほんまに寿司が大好きなんです。

昨日、ブルックリンは太郎すしへ行ってきました。
寿司屋ではカウンターに座るのが好きなので、カウンターへ通してもらい、酒を飲みながらアペタイザーをつまみます。
ここではEDOMAE NIGIRIをお願いすることが多いです。こちらはシェフのおまかせ握り9貫が寿司下駄に盛られてサーブされます。
寿司は人をほんまに幸せにしますね。
見た目もうれしいし、寿司はうまいもの。
寿司が出てきたら瞬間的に目かアタマのシャッターが切られ、その皿の上の様子が記憶に焼き付けられます。これ、私の特殊能力。
寿司はいい。

いつも思うのですが、寿司を食べた翌日はなんか、唇の血色が良くなっていませんか?私はいつもそうなのです。寿司を食べた翌日はステキ唇で一日過ごすのです。


I really love sushi.

I went to Taro Sushi in Brooklyn yesterday.
I love to have a seat on the counter at a sushi restaurant. So I did so there and started to enjoy cold beer and some fresh appetizers.

When I visit here, I usually order EDOMAE NIGIRI which is 9pcs chef's choice sushi on the special plate for sushi (we call this as 'sushi geta').
I'd like to say sushi makes people absolutely happy!
Sushi on the sushi geta plate looks so gorgeous and taste is fantastic.
When sushi is served for me on my table, my eyes or brain's camera shutter is released automatically and the scene is memorized on my brain as my memory like a picture. Well, this is one of my wonderful secret special skills as a mutant.
Sushi is FABULOUS.

By the way, do you think your lips look sexier than usually a day after you ate sushi? I feel my lips are sexier then always. I enjoy the day with sexy lips after I ate sushi.  This is also an additional great point to eat sushi, I guess.

My sister



My sister visited me from Japan. It was her vacation. We ate a lot, we visited hot spots a lot, we did summer things a lot and we chatted. She is an asset of my life.

妹がNYに遊びにきました。いろんなもん食べて、いろんなとこ行って、夏の遊びいっぱいした。そしてちょっとしゃべった。ほんまに妹は私の人生の財産です。





And we love dogs. We took pictures when we saw them every time.

うちら、犬、めっちゃすき。NYにはいろんな種類の犬がいる。みんなかわいい。

Also thanks to my friends who hung out with us! and sorry to my friends who we couldn't hang out with! Next time! She wanted to meet you.

今回の妹のバケーション、付き合ってくれたみんなありがとね。そして会えなかったみんな、妹がめっちゃ会いたがってたよ。またすぐに!

妹、えみこっていうんやけど、一緒にいても空気みたいな存在で、気遣いゼロで一緒にいる時はそれが普通みたいな感じやけど、バケーションが終わって、帰ってしまうとやっぱりさみしいわ。うちとこの妹、歩くの遅いし、ぼんやりしてるし、グルメじゃないけど、なんかええ奴やねん。ほんま私の人生の財産やわ。妹てええね。

My sister, her name is Emiko, I feel she is like air for me, how to say... I don't care about anything for her even we are together and it's normal thing for us but after she left, I miss her so much. She walks slow, she's zoning out all the time, she is not a foodie however she is nice girl! She is one of my assets in my life. I'm lucky to have a sister like her.

Egg saver Purvesh
























I had 4 dozes eggs accidentally and I needed to use them during they are fresh. I wrote down about it on my facebook. Then my hero Puru helped exactly what I wanted a day after I got eggs. He's a professional experienced chef. He made a huge Spanish omelette and devil's eggs as appetizer. Even though I didn't enough vegetables, ingredients, kitchen stuff and A/C too, he cooked them very quickly and deliciously! He's my hero. There is no eggs in my fridge and also no those plates here anymore because we ate immediately with our friends before I invite you this feast.
Anyway thanks Puru!!! You're awesome! xo
