Tortang Talong – a kind of omelette usually made with eggplant, meat, veges and of course eggs. Thats the eggplant stem sticking out, very unusual looking omelette.

Anne’s blog highlights Magisso, a cake slicer and server which won the red dot design award 2010. The magisso website has more details, it simple but absolutely awesome. No wonder it won an award. Here's a photo courtesy of the magisso website:
