The Revenge 3 ; Dessert.

Dessert time or tea time because I spent it around 4-5 pm? I guess afternoon tea time rite such british has. I’m not a british so lemme call it snack time. Spending late noon with an iPad, culinary books, slice of strawberry mousse and cold iced coffee milk. I sat down open an iPad to see different inspiration of food photography from other talented photographers. I really love to do that, moreover I had a slice of mousse, it was perfect enough because it wasn’t over sweet. Don’t you think the color is perfect? I agree. Cold iced coffee milk was simply refreshing this noon, just need instant coffee and condensed milk, no sugar added.

Oh my revenge is over finally, I should do the latest one as I thought before to make a complete revenge (4!!). Cooking – Capturing – Uploading – Editing – and Blogging for a whole day? Oh I need some rest as well to be ready for the next day.

P.S. Because today was so so cloudy from this morning, I had to give extra exposure to make pics that I captured brighter. But don’t you notice different lighting on some of last pics above? The sun was peeked for minutes before she said bye-bye, you can see from the shadows of the glass and the coffee can easily. I think I should learn more bout’ the lighting honestly yea, all those pics on this blog is depend on natural light, and I never use effects for editing, none. All I need to do for photoshop-ing is resize and  lay-out, brightness and level is sometimes.

Tea everytime. Tea in my bottle.

Let me share you poems and quotes of tea that I love ;

“If you are cold, tea will warm you;
If you are too heated, it will cool you;
If you are depressed, it will cheer you;
If you are exhausted, it will calm you.”
– William Gladstone –

“Come and share a pot of tea, My home is warm and my friendship’s free.”
– Emilie Barnes –

“My experience…convinced me that tea was better than brandy, and during the last six months in Africa I took no brandy, even when sick, taking tea when sick.”

– Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919) Letter 1912 –

“Meanwhile, let us have a sip of tea. The afternoon glow is brightening the bamboos, the fountains are bubbling with delight, the soughing of the pines is heard in our kettle. Let us dream of evanescence, and linger in the beautiful foolishness of things.”

– Okakura Kakuzo –

Brew your own tea and let it refresh your soul!

Cheers,

Tea Time.

Tea Time.

Ini aktifitas iseng-iseng di minggu sore, salah satu waktu favorit saya.

Saat niat memasak datang setelah nonton atau belanja kebutuhan di luaran sana, saya selalu memilih waktu yang tepat. Sore pukul empat adalah waktu terbaik. Selepas ashar saat matahari mulai teduh adalah saat dimana saya biasanya mulai memasak menu makan malam. Saya memiliki waktu sekitar dua setengah jam sebelum maghrib tiba. Sebulan terakhir ini maghrib dimulai lebih awal setengah jam dari waktu sebelumnya 19.10 waktu Afrika tengah. Tapi itu tergantung, jika saya sedang malas memasak saya lebih tertarik untuk memotret makanan. Selain memanfaatkan cahaya alami dari mentari sore, memotret makanan saat sore membuat saya bebas mengeksplor ide saya melalui teknik fotografi yang masih awam.

Lagipula sore hari membuat saya lebih bebas menyiapkan setting di atas meja makan daripada saya harus terburu-buru memotret di hari-hari aktif. Kadangkala jika saya sedang ingin mengambil gambar senin pagi dari makanan yang saya buat semalam, hasilnya tak akan serapi minggu sore.

Dua minggu yang lalu saya iseng-iseng memotret cemilan teman minum teh. Yah gaya ya ada acara minum teh sore-sore kaya orang Inggris saja :D ‘drink some english tea‘ !. Tidak foto-foto disini hanya objek latihan belajar memotret makanan dari kamera saya yang masih belum punya lensa makro terpisah. Tapi hasilnya lumayan kan? Beberapa cake cantik, cookies renyah, dan agar-agar pelangi yang tidak selesai <— ini karena saya malas! :D, terlihat begitu menggoda untuk disantap!

Apa yang harus dilakukan setelah berhasil mengambil makanan/ penganan yang akan saya tampilkan disini? Jawabannya jelas, mari makan!!!! :D

Bagaimana tergoda tidak menyantap coklat dingin yang kenyal ini? Saya menyantapnya dengan saus coklat dan alpukat! Yummy!

Ini cemilan favorit saya dari dulu, jelly coklat! :D Mudah dibuat, mudah dieksplor dan tentunya berserat! Anda bebas mengeksplor penganan ini asal saran saya, jangan terlalu manis jika anda mau menambahkan fla atau saus :)

Bagaimana dengan cake coklat ini? Bisa bayangin rasanya? :)

Bagaimana dengan Strawberry tartle ini? Ah fla didalamnya yang tak terlalu manis sangat ‘kawin’ dengan segarnya strawberry diatasnya.

Mencoba menangkap angle dari atas :D

Pineapple cake ini rasanya light!

Cookies ini dilapisi rasberry jam ditengah dan coklat diatas. Rasanya? Super duper manis! Too much, saya hanya iseng2 membelinya karena tertarik dengan kemasannya, sekarang? Cookiesnya masih kedinginan didalam kulkas, tak ada yang mau memakannya :p Tapi fotonya tak buruk kan? Paling tidak komposisinya.

Mini pancake ini hasil iseng-iseng :) Saya iris segitiga dan menumpuk irisannya dengan wafer dan pasta coklat. Hiasan diatasnya? Whipped cream! :D

Ini agar-agar pelangi yang seharusnya berlapis tujuh. Berhubung malas saya membuat lapisannya berwarna random! Lain kali saya akan membuatnya lapis tujuh! :)

Warnanya cukup vibrant ya meski tak separah rainbow-rainbow cake yang sempat booming! Karena saya memasaknya sendiri jadi saya jamin ini menggunakan pewarna makanan yang aman :)

Cookies coklat plus raisin. Ini saya beli bersamaan dengan cookies coklat tadi dan rasanya jelas lebih baik. Minum teh hangat dengan ini bukan pilihan buruk menghabiskan sore, asal, saya lebih suka menyeduh teh tawar atau teh lemon jika temannya cookies yang sudah manis.
