This is a thai style Yellow Curry with Ghost Peppers



A maple glazed cheese burger with a cole slaw made of spinach and red peppers with onion rings all on a Jalapeno cheddar bun



A beef and rice bowl with a rice pilaf.



And a cidar and brown sugar glazed pork loin with kimchi and hash.

Ooh, that yellow curry looks delicious! I actually had some served with chicken, potatoes and onions at a Thai/Malaysian cuisine restaurant in Boston a couple weeks ago with some friends after we were at the Microsoft NERD Center for Oculus VR's talks and demo showcases. Added in some white rice to soak it up in and the flavor was plain amazing (came back to hit me later of course, as curry is apt to do XD)

I'm not a super fancy food know-it-all or anything, but I know I like me a good bowl of curry! :P

Potatoes really make a curry pop. It gives it an earthiness that a lot of restaurants leave out. The geat thing about curries is they're their own cuisine because so many countries have put their hands in the pot that you can do a South African Curry which is different than a British Curry which are both worlds away from a true Indian curry which is a whole world away from a Thai or Indonesian curry. The ingredients differ so much because most curries are made with what you have on hand so one could have coconut milk or tomato sauce or any number of sauces. One of these days I'll just have to do a "Vasae Curry" and see how it comes out.

Indian curry with Naan bread is amazing. Only had it once, the day before my brother got married. It was absolutely delicious.

It's seriously good stuff, I wish I could make real naan but I don't have a tandoor.

Another from the Vasae Cooking Files, a somewhat botched attempt at a Golden Curry Doughnut. They came out more like poptarts/pastys. Still darn good.

Pretty nice presentation on those! I dare say they wouldn't look out of place at an actual sushi restaurant! :)

Oh my god, Vasae. Marry me!
UI / UX Design at Pixelscopic. As for now, the forum stuff hates me and keeps demoting me to Early Access instead of a Pixelscopic team member. Don't worry though—I'm a legitimate employee.

I have a collection of carnivorous plants. In the photo linked below there is one ceph, an old nepenthes, some pings and a variety of sundews. My venus flytraps and outdoor pitcher plants are all dead due rodent(s) eating a lot of them as they wintered under the snow and later the last ones were hit by mold the next winter.

I also have a lot of magic puzzle cubes and anime DVDs.

Monitoring Kickstarter campaigns has also become a serious hobby.
Often a day 1 backer of Kickstarter projects.

Hobbies outside of gaming? ... Uhhhhhhmmmm.... '-' Well I guess I enjoy writing stories. Most of which are fan fiction, but theres a couple that I've come up with myself. The only one I've actually finished deals with the manga Fruits Basket.

I also enjoy making floor plans for houses, "dungeons," and similar things. Usually I have implemented these into Minecraft ( maybe terraria if it's 2D ), but I've also found a 3D voxel editing program called Qubicle Constructor that I have used to create models of things. A stronghold, a floating dungeon, a metroid-esque 3D map, and even have began on recreating Fez's levels in it using the first person perspective. What I'd love to do one of these days it make a 2D metroid style map... :3

Most of my hobby base is spent on gaming of one sort or another though. Does that make me a hardcore Otaku?  :-[

I've actually been interested in learning how to use Qubicle Constructor, it was used to make art for Jason Oda's Continue?9876543210 which I personally really enjoyed, and it's being used now for Juan Raigada's Heart&Slash. The more I hear about it the more interested I am in working with it. Might be a good alternative to scultping ridiculously unoptimized, high-poly stuff ZBrush. :P
