Cavalock and The Le Creuset Carrier Goodie Bag

Now I don't usually pay much attention to those Japanese magazine bags, you know the ones that come with a free branded fashion accessory, usually a bag, (there's a proper name for them but I can't remember it right now) on sale at Kinokuniya but this one caught my eye.

It's from popular cookware Le Creuset! Looks like everyone's getting into the act. Anyway I think it makes a pretty neat gift to anyone who loves cooking. That little cast iron French oven doubles as a magnet too if you wanna stick it on your fridge!

Inside pages feature a nice catalog and yummy recipes, all in Japanese. Well, you can always enjoy the food porn if you don't read Japanese. Spotted more than a couple of Le Creuset that are already in my kitchen too. ;P

Been reading quite a bit on the Occupy Wall Street movement. After all the articles I have read, I can safely say I do know what's going on but I just still don't get beyond the 'why bother' bit, as in do they really think they can make a difference? I guess it's easy to hit on giant faceless institution like Wall Street when one is down on one's luck. For all the students protesting, I bet more than half of them wouldn't be in college if not for the money daddy made on Wall Street. And all of them sure as hell wouldn't be coordinating the event on their iPhones or BBs if Wall Street hadn't invested in those companies. You don't bite the hand that feeds you. Sure there are some bad apples on Wall Street, just like there are bad cops, bad teachers, bad doctors in just about every profession but you don't plan mass protests outside their workplaces. I can understand the problem but what is the point of protesting? The time, energy and money spent protesting could had been used for something much more constructive.

And finally Thought of The Day from this week's Big Bang Theory vanity card, "The reason you suffer is because you think your identity and worth as a human being are inextricably tied into your career. Don't think that."
