Sunnyland Slim - “The Devil Is A Busy Man”

Sunnyland Slim was born in Quitman County, Mississippi on September 5th, 1906. Happy Birthday, Sunnyland Slim! 

You little slut go get yourself some self-respect.

Don’t tell me you’re sorry. I’ll never be your plan B. It’s darkness everyday, guess I’ll be on my way. Take off your mask and get some self-respect. You lost me, it’s over, hope you have a nice day.

You little slut go get yourself some self-respect. Don’t tell me you’re sorry. I’ll never be your plan B. It’s darkness everyday, guess I’ll be on my way. Take off your mask and get some self-respect. You lost me, it’s over, hope you have a nice day.

I took this picture a years ago (November 19th, 2006) when the Sunland (popularly known as Sunnyland) mental hospital and former sanatorium (i.e., tuberculosis ward) was demolished.  Beat the sun up one morning so I could get some magic hour shots.

Grapefruit Spring Roll

This spring roll, which can be used for vegetarians, is also one of the most famous specialties of Tay Ninh. It is a tasty and easy take-away dish. The grapefruit spring roll has a combination of various tastes: either sour, salty or sweet, with a special flavor you have certainly never known before.

The locals are very ingenious to remove the bitter taste of grapefruit peel and turn it into something really popular. Look at the fresh and colorful rolls, which are a lot similar to the normal meat spring rolls, you will be surprised of its ingredients.

The roll is usually made ​​of grapefruit peel and grated & dried green papaya, combined with other additives such as star fruit, peppers, cerme, banana leaves, etc. Coming to Tay Ninh, enjoy and buy a few dozen grapefruit spring rolls for gift is also a good idea.
