pizza my way 意大利比薩餅 - part 5

The last time I had pizza was back in April. It is high time my culinary roulette cycles back to pizza making. I made two this week, both from scratch down to the dough. The title of my blog post is inspired by Jacque Pepin's fast food my way.

clam and dungeness crab linguine 意大利扁麵和蛤蜊珍寶蟹

This weekend I went grocery shopping. I came across some big clams and i bought some. I decided to make a few meals of pasta dishes with them. I also bought a dungeness crab and decide to use that too, in a dish that is a fusion of East and West.

water main repair 大水, 死人

This past Sunday I was working in front of my computer. I happen to notice through my webcam that an unusual volume of water was rushing into the storm drain in front of my house. It is not unusual to see significant water flow into the drain, except this time the water comes from the opposite direction and it was not raining hard.

Since last night I have been experiencing very poor internet speed. I don't know if it has anything to do with the nation is gripped by the development and the aftermath of the grand jury decision in Ferguson.

5k retina imac (iMac 配備 Retina 5K 顯示器) - part 2

My first introduction of an Apple Mac computer suffered from a setback as I wrote in a post a few weeks ago. I ordered the newly released 5k retina iMac that sports 5120 x 2880 display pixels. At this resolution it has a whopping 7.11 times more pixels than "true HD"'s 1920 x 1080 resolution. It has 14.7456 million pixels to be exact. It has 1.67 times the pixels of the 4k display (4096 x 2160), which at the time of this post cost $2499 for just the monitor.
