Dessert wine recommend by my AirBNB host

Posted by – April 25, 2016

I just had an AirBnb host who is from France. I am a wine lover and so I took this opportunity to ask him recommendations of wines.

He told me that Monbazillac is one of his favorite sweet wines.

So I did some Google search on the Internet, it looks like it is a quite undiscovered sweet wine.

The red wine he liked a lot is the Montepulciano.

Just pin down these two wines here for my future trip to France.

祭神拜祖和杀猪

好久没有看到杀猪祭神拜祖了。在新加坡每逢初一十五很多人都吃素, 但是猪还是要杀。这只猪好可怜。

有谁能解释一下祭祖为什么要杀猪?


Women is superior

“Whatever you give a woman, she will make greater. If you give her sperm, she’ll give you a baby.. If you give her a house, she’ll give you a home. If you give her groceries, she’ll give you a meal. If you give her a smile, she’ll give you her heart. She multiplies and enlarges what is given to her. So, if you give her any crap, be ready to receive a ton of shit!”

This is so true!!

kodokushi (孤独死)

Posted by – March 15, 2016

I first saw this piece of news in the local Singapore TV channel about a man in Japan died in his own house and no one notice until l,

First, I felt very sorry for him, then I can totally relate this story to my experiences in Japan. Bond between family members in Japan can be very weak among all the Asian countries, where family relationship is highly valued.

 

Kodokushi (孤独死) is a Japanese phrase for a Japanese phenomenon of people dying alone and remaining undiscovered for a long period of time.

 

美食与健康

Posted by – February 24, 2016

来了新加坡一个月,吃了很多新加坡的不但便宜而且味美当地东南亚美食。但是我发现每次吃完嘴巴都感觉怪怪的,特别想喝水或者吃水果。后来和新加坡的同事聊起,才知道是味精在作怪(MSG)。虽然从小在中国长大,但是在日本10年基本习惯了没有味精的饮食,到了新加坡还真一下子适应不了。感觉新加坡的hawk center里的美食加的味精比我小时候长大吃的菜跟鲜,但也更不健康。

这也让我联想起最近去超市买酱油,新加坡的超市里酱油种类繁多,产地也有很多来自不同的国家。在知乎上随便找到了一篇文章比较关于中国和日本酱油的差别,中国的酱油鲜味浓是加了其他东西在里面。

还记得刚去日本的时候,嫌日本酱油没有味道。但是现在反过来嫌新加坡的酱油太有味道了!之间还算悟出一个道理。越好吃的就有可能越不健康。越没有味道的,还可能是越健康的。鱼和熊掌不可兼得!
