Iniciarse a la cocina asiática

Posted by on Mar 26th, 2007 | 4 Comments Iniciarse a la cocina asiática Thumbnail

Asia es uno de los continentes que más me fascinan. Empezó de joven, cuando conocí a gente japonesa y taiwanesa. Continuó con mis diferentes viajes, entre los que se encuentran Taiwan, Japón, Indonesia, Tailandia,… Asia es un melting pot, una mezcla de culturas, tradiciones, lenguas y gastronomías que no tiene nada que envidiar a Europa.

I am working now for an insurance company with more than 25.000 employees and with offices  in such exotic places as South-America, Hog Kong or Bahrain. Of course, such important company has a complicated and intricate structure. Companies that depend of companies that  are controlled by companies that are dominated by a big holding that [...]

Sometimes you meet with people that have just enough intelligence to talk to a banana. Those people do not appear to be  a banana until you start speaking with them. And when you realize what they are… it is too late I met one of those specimen yesterday. A blond, tall girl that was nice [...]

I know. As surprising as it might seem to a lot of you people, I am a workaholic. And I can prove it! I’ve just received my vacacion time up to the 31 December 2006 and, surprisingly, I have 111,85 free hours. As 8 hours correspond to a day, that means some 14 free days! [...]

One week server downtime

In order to start the year in a positive note, I screwed my network. Indeed, it has been down for a week. The downtime was due to a router failure and my holidays at 2000km from home. It was very bad luck indeed! It took me a little while to reconfigure everything and make sure [...]

Como todos los años en estas fechas, se acerca el momento de la dolorosa, siendo este el momento en el que millones de españoles nos enfrentamos a Hacienda en la declaración de la renta. Personalmente le tengo fobia al dolor, que sea de muelas, espalda o bolsillo. Al no poder evitarlo intento reducirlo un máximo. [...]

Posted by on Dec 1st, 2006 | 0 Comments Wargames in Madrid, someone? Thumbnail

I am a kind of misunderstood strategy games fan. That means that I love them, but did not have much opportunity to play them. Indeed, because of lack of time or partners, my experience is limited to a few games. In spite of that, I do not loose faith. I have just received a brand [...]

About comics and stuff

Comics are perceived in a different way depending of the geography you live in. Unfortunately, in Spain comics are perceived as something for kids and freaks. And let’s not talk about manga and superhero comics… Of course, there is always Mortadelo y Filemón, Zipi y Zape and other classics that ‘adults’ sometimes read.  And also [...]

Negociaciones con ETA

Posted by on Nov 25th, 2006 | 0 Comments Negociaciones con ETA Thumbnail

Voy a empezar por lo evidente: Me solidarizo con todas las víctimas del terrorismo venidas y por venir, y me des-soliradizo de todo acto separatista, religioso, o de cualquier otra cause, que se transmita por la violencia.  Dicho esto, pasemos a lo que nos concierne. He de confesar que vivo un poco fuera del mundo [...]
