Last week I received a phone call from a friend, who asked me if I was interested of guiding Mario Testino around Brussels.
First I thought it was a joke but when I suddenly got a phone call from the pope of photography himself I was 100% sure I was not dreaming.
Hell yeah I wanna show the biggest Photographer around Brussels. So I was told to plan a day for the both of us.
Meeting place: Hotel Amigo, in the city centre.
I was a little nervous to meet Mr. Testino in person, but from the moment I shacked his hand I felt a good connection. I was sure we would have a great time together.
First I showed him some fancy bars, nice shops and famous buildings around his hotel.
Mario was taking pictures NON stop so I had the feeling I was doing well as a guide! ;-)
After walking around we went for lunch in the Belga Queen, a great restaurant with a very nice atmosphere and the food was delicious.
A Plus for Ceesie.
After lunch we went to see some nice art galleries. I was impressed by the interest and knowing that Mister Testino had for contemporary art.
We saw so many nice and great stuff of Louise Bourgeoise and Sterling Ruby.
I suddenly realised why I love art so much: Creativity and originality makes things/people so fascinating. To finish our day we went for a walk around the antique stores at the "Sablon" and we tasted the best Belgian chocolates of Brussels on the terrace of "Wittamer".
Mario, I hope you had a fun and unforgettable day, I definitely had! ;-)

Belgium is the center of Europe so nothing is very far.
Paris = 1 hour by speed train.
London = 2 hours by Eurostar and Amsterdam is only 2,5 driving.
And when you fly for 2 hours you're in Milan or Madrid.
My favorite thing to do when I'm in an airport (except for reading gossip magazines and drinking Starbucks) is looking at the time and destination screen and make my personal top 3 where I would love to fly at that moment.

This weekend Ceesie made one of his favorite dishes for a group of friends.
It's a recipe from Jamie Oliver aka the naked chef.
It's a casserole with Cod fish, Cherry Tomatoes and Mozzarella cheese.
So what do we need:
-200 grams of Cod fish
-A pinch of salt and pepper
You take a baking pan and rub some oil inside. Place the cod inside the center of the pan, put slices of mozzarella cheese so it's covering the top of the fish. Cut the cherry tomatoes in half and place them all over the cod. Then you grind some fresh Parmesan, Pepper and salt and put fresh basil leaves on top.
(You can also add some roasted potatoes with rosemary if you feel like it)
Put it in the oven for about 15-20 minutes at 375 degrees (200 Celsius).
I recommend at least 3 bottles of champagne and if your lucky the naked chef himself will knock on the door. ;-)
