Ramen although it wasn’t called that, then — first appeared in Japan in 1910, when Chinese cooks at Tokyo’s Rairaiken restaurant created a signature dish comprising broth and Chinese noodles, which were yellower and more elastic than Japanese noodles because — then as now — their dough was kneaded with kansui, a sodium-carbonate-infused alkaline mineral water.
This wildly popular dish was not called ramen but rather shina soba: Shina is a phonetic rendering of the word “China.” Soba are buckwheat noodles, although the Chinese noodles used in shina soba were wheat-based. Over the next few years, restaurants all over Japan started serving regional versions of shina soba, using local ingredients. Continue reading “Ramen At Its Finest”
Filipinos, regardless of age or socio-economic status, have all suffered from a cavity. Figures released by the Department of Health revealed that nine out of ten Filipinos suffer from cavities or tooth decay. Your child could be one of them.
Tooth decay or cavities is the top chronic health concern for children all over the world, which, when left untreated, can compromise a child’s eating and sleeping habits, as well as affect their self-confidence. A child suffering from severe cavities may experience difficulty in concentrating on school work, speaking, and even sleeping. Gerlie, a mother of two, shares, “I wasn’t aware that my child was suffering from cavities until one day he cried because of his very painful toothache. He couldn’t move and wasn’t able to do much else until the pain went away. He didn’t even have the appetite to eat or the energy to go to school.” These result in increasingly escalating detrimental effects on health, school and work performance, and even self-esteem. Aside from compromising a child’s eating habits, severe decay in baby teeth can have serious consequences for a child’s speech and jaw development.

Processes have improved the browsing experience, and provided consumers greater transparency when it comes to exciting deals and discounts. I have an online store and I can’t tell you how stressed I am when the shipping company that I use in unreliable. I’ve always felt that i was at their mercy because there’s no choice. I say the buck stops here I will not pay for crappy service and nor will I be subject to unreliable pick ups.

A quick and convenient getaway is what most of us fantasize about after a long day at work. Probably somewhere cozy with a great view and enough space so we can hang out with our friends and talk about something else besides our deadlines. The con with the city is that we can’t really find a place anymore that’s near, fun, and isn’t as crowded as the MRT. The pros though include the fact that Krazy Garlik has decided to give us a bigger version of Garlikland and letting us be Alice from now until forever.
