The Amazing MST Kyomizu from Japan

I’ve heard many people saying that when an innovation comes from Japan, it surely is better, if not the best. It surely has been carefully examined and thoroughly undergone an in-depth procedure in order to come up with best result. And so I agree.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO) Japanese women have a life expectancy of 87 – the highest in the world, while children are expected to live up to 73 without major illness or disability, therefore Japanese boys and girls have the highest healthy life expectancy. Japanese men life expectancy is in the top ten all over the world, ahead of the US and UK.

The Japanese Diet  

People in Japan eat mostly vegetables, fruits, fish and meat. The Japanese government defined a recommended food guide in 2005 and ten years later, in 2015, researchers at the National Center for Global Health and Medicine in Tokyo investigated how following the food guide affected the country’s mortality rate. Researchers found that participants who closely followed the food guide had a 15% lower mortality rate.

Japan Healthcare System

Japan is known to have a Universal Healthcare. They have equal access to healthcare for all its countrymen through a health insurance system and they have mandatory regular check-ups for students and workers.

Drinking Green Tea  

This has been a part of their culture for such a long time. If most of us drink coffee in the morning to help us kick off our busy day, they choose to drink Green tea because they faithfully think that a morning tea brings good fortune. In fact, Japanese people drink it several times a day. It’s also considered an essential part of any meal so that’s why restaurants serve this drink for free as soon as the diners are seated. They believe in the power of tea because of its healing properties. It contains five times as much vitamin C as a lemon; it boosts the blood vessels and circulatory system, and ward off germs. Aside from the Vitamin C, it’s also rich in Cetachin, a powerful antioxidant that keeps cells from aging and helps prevent high blood pressure and diabetes. Green tea is the healthiest beverage on the planet indeed!

Breakfast around the World

Breakfast is considered as the most essential meal of the day. It’s the meal that fuels you the energy you need and helps you kick off your active day. Apart from that, foods for breakfast contain important nutrients such as Calcium, Iron, Protein, Fiber, and lots of Vitamins. These are the most important nutrients our body needs and influences a lot on how we carry out tasks physically and mentally.

However, some people don’t feel like eating their breakfast for some reasons. Might be that they’re too busy or they just don’t feel hungry until 10am. But not me! Oh how I love this meal. If only I could, I’d like to have pancakes, cereal, hard-boiled eggs, sausages, and cheese every morning! Are you salivating yet? On the other hand, you need to keep in mind that a balanced diet is still your priority. So eating sausages everyday may not sound so good too.

Additionally, in travelling around the world, one must also know what do the locals in the place you’re travelling to, eat in their meals. Of course, breakfast foods differ widely from place to place. Take a look at different types of foods people from different countries eat for breakfast.

Japan

A traditional Japanese first meal consists of a bowl of Miso soup and steamed rice or rice porridge, and various side dishes like cooked fish and some pickled vegetables, and of course a cup of green tea.

India

A traditional Indian morning meal depends on each region but you might be surprised that they almost eat similar dishes to lunch and dinner. Their breakfast might include roti (flatbread), dosas (thin crepes made of lentils) or idlis (steamed rice-dough pancakes), and different dips and chutneys, as well as spiced potatoes.

Singapore

Kaya is like a jam made from coconut, egg and Pandan leaves. It is served on toasted bread with a thick layer of margarine. If you like to start the day with a hearty breakfast, a set of Kaya toast, soft-boiled eggs and Singapore-style coffee or tea is definitely perfect.

Singaporean breakfast

Australia

Recently, a new breakfast trend in Australia includes Cereal with veggies. It may sound very unattractive to start your day but it is actually rich in all the nutrients you need especially if milk or yoghurt and top it with nuts or seeds. So that’s calcium, protein, and fiber all in one serving!

Germany

I love Philippines’ traditional morning meal but this German style breakfast is by far my favorite one. I think it has everything in it that a person wouldn’t say NO for breakfast no matter how busy or lazy he/she might be. A good, traditional breakfast includes bread, toast, and/or rolls, multiple jams and honey, boiled eggs, cold meats, such as ham and salami, lots of different cheeses (which makes it perfect for me!), fruit and vegetables, and smoked fish all washed down with a strong cup or pot of tea or coffee. Aren’t those irresistible? Hmmm….

Brazil

Brazillian breakfast consists of a strong coffee or suco (juice), freshly baked bread (usually it is Pão Francês) with butter or margarine, and a Papaya fruit. It’s easy to prepare and very much ideal for those who want to eat light.

Russia

Traditional Russian breakfast is very simple and some people who travel Russia find it unappetizing since it’s just too common. Russian breakfast includes fried eggs, porridge, sandwich with butter or jam, tvorog (similar to cottage cheese), pancakes, some fruits, and/or cereal for breakfast.

Colombia

A main food for morning meal in Colombia is the Arepa or corn cake topped with butter or fried egg, meat, or jam. Though most of them eat Calentado (which means “heated”), this is a dish made of the night-before’s leftovers which are then reheated the next morning for their breakfast. It is then served with fried egg and a hot chocolate drink.

England

Full English breakfast is a healthy English morning meal that includes eggs, sausage, bacon, beans, mushrooms, and cooked tomato and with of course a cup of coffee or tea especially originated in England. Almost everything in their breakfast is fried, so it’s commonly called as ‘fry-up’.

Christmas in Philippines

***HAPPY HOLIDAYS***

Christmas is indeed the happiest time of the year. Many countries celebrate it in different ways. Some are based on their religious beliefs and some are celebrating it for commercial purposes only. Whatever reasons they have, I’d like to share with you this one particular country that celebrates Christmas interestingly and it’s no other than, Philippines!

PHILIPPINES’ CHRISTMAS TRADITIONS

***Decorations***

It is believed that Philippines have the longest Christmas season in the world. As early as September, people in their homes and shops can be heard playing the Christmas carols. It marks the start of the long and happy season.  Moreover, Filipinos start to decorate Christmas ornaments and gorgeous lights in their homes and shops. The most popular decoration is the “Parol”. It is made of a colored Japanese paper or cellophane and Bamboo sticks. They are formed together into a big star lantern which is then lighted at the center. The Parol represents the star the guided the three Wise Men to where the baby Jesus was born.

***Longest Celebration***

Formally, 16th of December is the start of celebration. Catholic people go to churches starting on that day to attend the “9 early morning masses” or “Misa de Gallio”; that is from 16th of December until the Christmas Day. 80% of the Philippines’’ population is Catholics so no wonder it is the most important and celebrated holiday. Catholics believe that if they fulfilled the 9 early morning masses, their Christmas wishes will be granted. Outside the church, vendors sell the traditional food especially popular in this holiday season such as “Puto bumbong” and “Tsokolate”. Mind you these foods are sold in no time so you must be in the church early if you like to taste them.

On the Christmas Eve, many people stay awake all night and wait for the clock to strike at 12:00. They usually sing Karaoke, play games, cook special desserts, drink alcohol, and/or take each other’s pictures to keep themselves awake. People attend the Christmas Eve mass earlier in the evening. Then they will gather together to eat Noche Buena or midnight feast after going back to their homes they It is a big and special meal joined by all the members of the family and friends. Popular Noche Buena dishes include the Lechon or roasted pig, Ham, Fruit Salad, Puto bumbong, and Coke. Most people have the Exchanging of Presents in which each family members bring gifts and give to other members of the family after eating the Noche Buena. It is the most awaited part of the holiday since everyone get to receive surprising presents.
