Soup Curry is the new Ramen …

Filed under: Soup Curry — ricky @ 9:02 pm
soup-curry3.jpg ... at least in Sapporo. The latest and hottest hangout is a mini-building near the fish market and it's - what else - filled with exotically scented soup curry eateries! Soup Curry Yokocho is the most recent addition to Sapporo's spicy food landscape and you better go there ASAP or it will be overrun with tourists like the Ramen Yokocho in its heyday. Right now it's extremely popular with businesspeople in the Nijo-Ichiba neighborhood. I went there at 11:55 and got a table easily but ten minutes later the place was completely packed and not one additional soul would have fit! Lunchtime in Japan is from twelve to one sharp, a fact that I still often forget ... I have what I call brunch at that time and have my real lunch around three or four, a habit I just can't break, not even after six years here!! Anyway, I tried Legon soup curry. The interior design is lovely, paintings of tropical rainforests, colorful figurines of celestial figures and Hindu prayer statues. When it comes to the taste of the soup, however, I was not impressed. It was salty with distinctively Japanese ingredients and tasted more like ramen than soup curry. I'll not go back there but I'll for sure try all other restaurants in the building. Stay tuned. 札幌の英語の先生、札幌のスペイン語の先生、札幌英語先生、札幌スペイン語先生、英語のブログ、BLOG、会話、英語英会話、札幌の先生、札幌先生、英語の語学スクール、スペイン語の語学スクール、札幌英会話、英会話、English teacher in Sapporo, maestra de español。

$1 million award for lab-grown meat

Filed under: Animal Rights, News & Events — ricky @ 6:18 pm
beef1.jpgI confess: I love a big juicy steak, nicely grilled chicken breast or oven-baked turkey. However, when I think of the often horrible conditions on farms or chicken factories and the subsequent slaughtering, I tend to lose my appetite. If I weren't that active - physically and mentally - I'd probably have turned vegetarian a long time ago. It seems like I don't have to after all: PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) has just offered a $1 million prize for somebody who comes up with a process that allows for meat to be grown in laboratories. The condition is that it has to taste exactly like the real thing, impossible to tell apart even for gourmets and professional food-testers. After the offer became public a major crisis apparently broke out among vegetarians. Now they are split in two groups, pragmatists applauding and cheering and purists deeply disappointed because they feel they've lost the battle towards a meat-free society. I am practical in many ways and I'll definitely be one of the first consumers once lab-grown meat becomes readily available at a reasonable price. The process is simple: Just grow meat from stem cells the way therapeutic tissue is grown in labs. The task now is to give it the taste of real beef, chicken, turkey or whatever meat you want. The person or company who succeeds in doing just that will eventually get the $1 million prize money. Guilt-free indulging in meat - can't wait!! I declare this week Animal Rights Week and dedicate it to all animals that suffer on fur farms, in chicken factories, in labs, cages or other unbearable types of environments. 札幌の英語の先生、札幌のスペイン語の先生、札幌英語先生、札幌スペイン語先生、英語のブログ、BLOG、会話、英語英会話、札幌の先生、札幌先生、英語の語学スクール、スペイン語の語学スクール、札幌英会話、英会話、English teacher in Sapporo, maestra de español。

Que verguenza

Filed under: Animal Rights, En Español — ricky @ 4:02 pm
doggie41.JPGdoggie51.JPGdoggie61.JPGA primera vista pense que era una mala broma creada por un ser cinico: Un perro atado en una galeria muriendose de hambre y al lado gente mirandolo sin hacer nada, diciendo "es arte". Me parecio demasiado sadico y cruel como para ser real. Pero es verdad, paso y esta a punto de pasar de nuevo al menos que nosotros lo paremos. El ano pasado un tipo quien se cree artista recogio un perrito de la calle en Costa Rica, lo ato en una galeria de "arte" y lo dejo morir de hambre a la vista de otros, y ellos estaban mirando, ignorandolo o peor, aplaudiendo. Ahora estan intentando de organizar el mismo evento obsceno de nuevo en la biennale de arte de Honduras. Si estas igual de disgustado como yo, por favor firma la peticion para que aquel evento no se repita: http://www.petitiononline.com/13031953/petition.html Miren las fotos: Gente tomando y divirtiendose mientras al lado el perrito se esta muriendo en agonia. Quienes son esas personas? Son humanos? Como se puede aprobar o permitir tal cosa? Que desvergonzados, no solamente aquel tipo sino tambien los gobiernos de esos paises que permiten o hasta promoven tal crueldad y sufrimiento. Jamas pondre pie ni en Costa Rica ni en Honduras. Eso no es arte, eso es sadismo. Por favor firma la peticion.

This is heartbreaking

Filed under: Animal Rights — ricky @ 8:08 pm
doggie3.JPGdoggie11.JPGdoggie2.JPGAt first I thought it was a hoax: A dog being tied up in a gallery starving to death and people watching its agony and saying "it's art"? That sounds too sadistic, too cruel, too cynical to be true. But it happened and it's about to happen again unless we stop it. A guy who thinks he's an artist picked up a dog from the street in Costa Rica last year, tied him to a rope and let him die of starvation and people were just looking, ignoring it, or worse, applauding. Now they want to stage the same despicable, heartbreaking event again at the upcoming biennal art show in Honduras. If you are as outraged as I am, please sign the petition to stop the event from happening: http://www.petitiononline.com/13031953/petition.html "Ciudad/Localidad" means country or region. "Paas" (pais) means country. Look at the pictures: People standing there with their drinks while the dog is miserably dying right next to them. Who are these people? Are they human? How can people approve/permit/ignore that? Shame on Costa Rica and Honduras, shame on their local governments who permit or even encourage such cruelty and meaningless suffering. That's not art, that's sadism at its worst. LET'S STOP THEM. Please sign the petition. 札幌の英語の先生、札幌のスペイン語の先生、札幌英語先生、札幌スペイン語先生、英語のブログ、BLOG、会話、英語英会話、札幌の先生、札幌先生、英語の語学スクール、スペイン語の語学スクール、札幌英会話、英会話、English teacher in Sapporo, maestra de español。

Luisa’s annual medical check-up

Filed under: Life with Felines — ricky @ 4:41 pm
luisita.jpgOn the way to the vet Luisa was mewing and protesting ... Like most cats, she hates car rides. Once we arrived there, she maintained complete silence. The reason for that abrupt change in behavior is that the waiting room was full of dogs!! She tried not to be spotted by her natural "enemies" (don't get me wrong though, I like dogs). Luisa is 11 now and needs a blood-test and general medical check once a year. Middle-aged or older cats sometimes develop kidney disease and a variety of other conditions. Needless to say, prevention is crucial. She also got the triple-vaccine for felines. The vet pricked her twice and she so well-behaved, as quiet as a mouse, lol. Within ten minutes we got the results and they turned out to be excellent, better than last year actually! Her white blood cells, previously too low, are now at a normal level of 6200. She has slightly too many red blood cells (1056) but there's no need to worry (a normal level would be up to 1000). At 6.8 her blood protein is in a normal range (should be between 6 and 7.5). Must be all the exercise she's been getting since live wire Atomo joined our household last year! 札幌の英語の先生、札幌のスペイン語の先生、札幌英語先生、札幌スペイン語先生、英語のブログ、BLOG、会話、英語英会話、札幌の先生、札幌先生、英語の語学スクール、スペイン語の語学スクール、札幌英会話、英会話、English teacher in Sapporo, maestra de español。

Organic soup curry

Filed under: Soup Curry — ricky @ 1:58 pm
lavi1.JPGNo doubt that this is one of the most professional soup curry chains around. Not only do they make their own tableware, but they also cultivate crops, everything 100 % organic. So what you get at Lavi is a bowl full of crispy freshness. Main dishes are yawaraka chicken, eight types of vegetables, ravioli & vegetables or toro toro pork. There's a monthly curry (this month: gnocchi). At lunchtime you get a free beverage (pineapple juice, grapefruit juice, lassi etc.). This time I had lunch at lavi lavi (N26, W8) where the interior is a mixture between a beach shack and a log house, lots of dark wood. But I actually prefer lavi Maruyama (S1, W21) where the ambience is lush and tropical. 札幌の英語の先生、札幌のスペイン語の先生、札幌英語先生、札幌スペイン語先生、英語のブログ、BLOG、会話、英語英会話、札幌の先生、札幌先生、英語の語学スクール、スペイン語の語学スクール、札幌英会話、英会話、English teacher in Sapporo, maestra de español。

Bad a.. … what?

Filed under: News & Events — ricky @ 2:32 pm

sakura2.jpgpineapple1.jpgYesterday I was cruising around in downtown (Odori) and made two discoveries: 1-The long-awaited cherry blossoms are out on some treetops! In my neighborhood the landscape is still hibernally deserted and void of flowers so I was a bit surprised, to say the least, to see the flimsy pink blossoms. 2-Bad Ass Coffee from Hawaii has opened a branch in Sapporo. Great news for everybody who's into hula and flavored coffee. I had a pineapple flavored iced coffee and it brought back faint memories of tropical holidays. Not as good as the real thing but not bad ... Bad ass? Hmmm ....... For my non-native readers: "bad ass" is American slang for "cool", "great", "amazing", "superb".

Temple of the Town Gods

Filed under: India & China — ricky @ 9:08 pm
trip_ene_2008-318.jpgtrip_ene_2008-319.jpgtrip_ene_2008-324.jpgThen there was the strolling through old Shanghai and its outdoor markets. Live food trapped in innumerable buckets in front of tiny shops, bargainers and bargain hunters alike, sidewalk hustlers and tea-shop-owners trying to lure customers. Surprisingly few tourists. I was soo excited when I saw a well-fed cat lurking around! For some reason I didn't expect that in China. Then, through an inconspicious entrance in the midst of all these stalls and stands I reached some very impressive statues and structures and realized I was in the Temple of Town Gods. 札幌の英語の先生、札幌のスペイン語の先生、札幌英語先生、札幌スペイン語先生、英語のブログ、BLOG、会話、英語英会話、札幌の先生、札幌先生、英語の語学スクール、スペイン語の語学スクール、札幌英会話、英会話、English teacher in Sapporo, maestra de español。
