Some mothers are kissing mothers
and some are scolding mothers,
but it is love just the same, and most
mothers kiss and scold together.

(Pearl S. Buck)

 


 

Today is Mother’s Day here in Indonesia.

On the other 364 days, I often think I will never be good enough for her when in reality, she just wants me to be safe, well, and happy.

I may only count the number of times she’s kissed me with my fingers, but there have been countless days when she’s showed me she loves me in every other way.

There’s never a moment – not a minute, not a second, not even a nanosecond – that she doesn’t care.

So get this: Moms scold because they care. If they don’t, they would’ve channeled all her time and energy for something (or someone) else other than you.

 

 
 

Selamat Hari Ibu everyone.

You may encounter many defeats,
but you must not be defeated.
In fact, it may be necessary
to encounter the defeats, so you can
know who you are, what you can rise from,
how you can still come out of it.

(Maya Angelou)

 


 

RIP, Maya.

Be softDo not let the world make you hard.
Do not let the pain make you hate. Do not let
the bitterness steal your sweetness.
Take pride that even though the rest of the world may
disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.

(Kurt Vonnegut)

Maps made from real food

 

You’ve got to see this.

Longtime collaborators photographer Henry Hargreaves and food stylist Caitlin Levin joined forces in a fascinating illustration of different parts of the country … using the respective region’s signature foods.

… and it’s all corns in the United States.


 

Just look at the beautiful shrimps fof Australia, or the citrus fruits of South America.

Sharing their passion for all things food and travel, they’ve been using food as a medium to convey that love across their projects, including entire series of artworks based on eggs, gingerbread, as well as Oreo cookies.

Now that’s one idea to cook up in my own head.

 

P.S. Speaking of edible mediums, check out the girl who gets creative with coffee cup stains. For Pete’s sake, she drew Jay Chou.
