Most people knows that Ramen is a famous Japanese noodle dish.
But have you heard about “blue ramen”?
“Blue Ramen” is a new creation by a Ramen shop in Nihonbashi. It will be available only for a limted period of time during summer. Its base is shio Ramen and can you image? As cool as it looks with the blue coloring, it is served cold too.
Frankly, I can’t imagine how the taste will be, because never had I in my life, tasted a Ramen that comes with cold soup (･_･?)
However, I wouldn’t think twice about trying it because it was said to contain phycocyanin that aids in anti-aging and anti-oxidation.
Wow! Doesn’t that sound like a “high-tech” Ramen? o(^-^)o
And what is the response of netizens towards “Blue Ramen”？
“It just looks like poison to me”, “The coloring makes me lose my appetite” were some of the negative remarks.
Well, I will reserve my opinion until I had tried it.
Shocking invention / blue ramen
Hey folks, monotone styles are not necessary boring.
Here are some brilliant, simple monotone coordination pick outs from ViVi magazine, that are nowhere the boring monotone style. They showed what monotones is capable of, not only interesting, but can create wonderful style variations.
The sweet, kawaii, girly style that is created through monontone.
With the right coordination, monotones can “turn up” for formal parties or even casual outings or dates.
The cool and stylist monotone coordinates.
Top on a bustier top or wearing really short pant to show off your long legs are some ways to accentuate monotone colors.
So have your impressions towards monotone changed?
Its so sweltering hot in Tokyo that I felt I could be suffering heatstroke anytime.
I can’t tell if its the effect of the stifling heat, I can’t get my eyes away from anything that says “cool and refresh”.
There was this fruit jelly that keeps “haunting” me.
It looks so temptingly delicious with all the fruits immersed in it.
A few spoonfuls are all I need… o(=^.^=)o
How about a little scenario like this?
It is a hot night and you just had a hot shower. The sky is clear and you can see stars. You recalled the jelly in the fridge. So you take one along with you to the balcony, and enjoy the chilled jelly while watching the starlit sky.
So what do you get out of this “little scenario”?
Well,,, nothing other than to appreciate more about the chilled jelly and starry sky.
The jelly comes in six different fruits.
Cherry, blueberry, kiwi, pear, mango and grape fruit if your are keen.
Refreshing fruit jelly for summer
Summer in Japan spells, soaring temperatures, high humidity, heat island, that I have little tolerance for. I do appreciate the sun very much, but I can’t say the same for summer seasons.
You know how it feels when you wake up every morning, sticky and soak in sweat?
Each summer, I swear by Biore’s “sara sara powder sheet” ever since I started using it 3 years ago. It became a routine to just take one out from the pack, to wipe my body every morning. Body odor (bet that’s what most of you are conscious of) and stickiness, all gone within a wipe. Save me the shower, save water, save $$$. I feel so refresh and dry after that, as if I had a shower.
Nobody knows that I don’t shower in the morning b(^_-)b
I won’t know what’s the secret behind each sheet, but definitely “sara sara powder sheet” is another great product that I would strongly recommend.
And, wow! I didn’t realize there are as many as seven types available (@o@)!!
Those containing mild, pleasant scent are the only ones that I had tried before.
More types might show up again, next year, perhaps.
Please inquire through the blue button below for more details on this product.
