Lomito, Aruba, video

One of my favorite Colombian restaurants on the the island of Aruba is The New Pueblito Paisa located in San Nicolaas. And, a favorite meal is the lomito. Here’s a short video:

That’s a tasty dish served at a great price by friendly people. They have many other Colombian style meals there, including delicious soups. Stop in and try it. Bon dia.

Double Happy, Aruba, video

Aruba is known as “One Happy Island.” There’s also a number of other happily named places on the island, such as this small Chinese operated bar/restaurant/pool hall, known as the “Double Happy.” Here’s a short video:

Friends gather several nights a week to shoot pool, have some drinks, laugh, and enjoy the fun. This place is located at the south end of San Nicolaas. Bon dia.

Computer Build, video

Building a computer is a fun, educational, and rewarding experience. If you have even the slightest interest in the technology behind your screen or in the box at your desk, give it a try. There’s lots of helpful videos on YouTube, not to mention a number of websites that will make the process easier. I wanted to build a computer for video editing and light gaming. Therefore, I went with an Intel i7 4790k processor on an ASUS Z97 Pro motherboard with SSD drives for system and storage. Will be adding a few more archive drives in the future when cash permits. So, here’s the video of building my system. I’m sure I made a bunch of mistakes not to mention doing some things out of order.

In the end, it all worked great. I’m well on my way to new video projects which will be a significant test of the system. So far, so good. Given how much fun this was, I’m thinking of building another one. First, I’ll put this one to the test by doing some serious video work on it. Hope to show the results soon here at The Bent Page. (By the way, sorry about the lousy sound on the video. Microphones and mixer will be employed on future studio projects after the remodel.)

Rincón Criollo, Aruba (video 2014)

Restaurante Rincón Criollo is a great joint for lunch or supper, especially if you’re passing through Savaneta, Aruba, perhaps on your way back and forth to Baby Beach. You’ll find all your favorite Cuban dishes on the menu at prices that will keep you on budget. I stopped in for the carne a la plancha and here’s the video showing you all the details:

Owner Enrique is a great guy who will make sure you enjoy the meal. Enjoy the other side of the bridge and head out to places like this for a taste of Aruba’s local flavor. Enjoy every meal. Bon dia.
