3D Klepon Pac-Man

20120612 Klepon 3D Pacman Face 150x150 3D Klepon Pac Man

My favourite human female from Essex called Emily (okay, I only know one person from Essex :p ), whom I had the pleasure of meeting briefly last week along with “Cider Nick” & Laura (no wait, make that two – she’s from Essex too… Hmm…), sent in this picture of klepon taken in the man’s flat.  It’s my flat really, but humans are so arrogant it’s disgusting.

You’re probably thinking, “Wait, kle-wuh? Wossa’?”

Klepon, I am told, is like sweet Indonesian ravioli.  They are pandan flavoured glutinous rice dough balls filled with Javanese palm sugar (gula jawa) and coated in desiccated coconut.

Sadly the picture doesn’t do the face justice (no offence Em! 😉 ) and you “had to be there” to appreciate the sheer awesomeness.  I wasn’t really there either; I heard the man talking to himself about it afterwards, as he paced around the living room, drooling whilst eating raw carrots before passing out and writhing in his own filth.  Okay, I’m lying about that but the man is an idiot.

Cider Nick squeezed the sides of the ball to force a stress fracture in one side of the klepon to open and close like a little snapping 3D Pac-Man.  The sound effects he made were half the fun.  Much fun was had, apparently.

Taking the carpet for a test drive

20110103 Chandelier 300x225 Taking the carpet for a test driveI was at my friend’s house on New Year’s Eve and as bedtime approached (and passed) I started feeling a little tired.  Since it was a sleepover, I decided to try out the living room carpet for comfort – like a test drive.  As I lay there I noticed how the chandelier cast a shadow on the ceiling.  It looked a bit like an evil overlord.  What it reminded me of was a series of Photoshopped self-perception/self-image pictures I once found on the internet.  I can’t find the link but this is the kind of thing I’m talking about.  If you Google it, there are some really profound images around.  A particular favourite of mine was an image of a small bird looking at its own reflection in the water and seeing an eagle.

Back to the chandelier, there is this delightful contrast between the light and dark – chandelier and shadow – and the evil face in the shadow seems fitting with the image associated with darkness in our culture.  The question then: Is the chandelier’s shadow betraying its true nature?  Or is it the opposite?  Or maybe it’s just a luminaire.  I decided I didn’t like the carpet and slept somewhere else…
