Discovering Mother Earth New Species: Begonia Fulgurata

Begonia fulgurata, a new species discovered in northern Thailand. Begonia fulgurata resembles B. integrifolia, a widespread species in Southeast Asia, in having tubers, erect stem with hairy leaves, and a periodically dormant habit.

However, the new species is sharply distinct in its lamina densely hirsute (vs sparsely puberulous) and with maroon patches and silvery-white veins

Traveling to Bay of the Day Ha Long Bay

Ha Long Bay is situated in north Vietnam round a 120 kilometers long coast line and is literally translated as “Bay of Descending Dragons”.

 

Traveling to the this bay, which is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Vietnam and features thousands of islands, is a fabulous dream come true!

 

Each island is topped with thick jungle vegetation, forming a spectacular seascape of limestone pillars. Several of the islands are hollow, with enormous caves, others islands include lakes and some support floating villages of fishermen.

1 Easy Japan Delicious Long French Fries Recipe

JAPAN FOOT LONG FRIES

Though the foot-long fry trend has yet to blow up in the U.S, I am guessing it’s only a matter of time. That means, you should start assessing exactly how you feel about the creation. 

 

 

 

 

Where do you supposed extra long French fries will fall among the many different classifications of fries for you?

You’re probably wondering where on earth I find finds such massive potatoes to make these crispy creations, other than in Japan or Australia.

The answer is nowhere, they don’t exist. Instead, potatoes are mashed into a sort of batter-like consistency.

Then, the potato mixture is gathered into balls, and they’re placed, one by one, into a special machine that presses out long sticks of potato directly into a deep fryer. It kind of looks like pasta in the making.

 

 

Once you get your basket of fresh #longfries, you can top them with one of two Japanese dipping sauces (let’s be honest, eating a dry French fry is pretty much pointless): a creamy shiitake mushroom sauce or a more traditional Japanese mayonnaise… though no one’s judging if you want to stick with regular ketchup or vinegar 😂🍿}

Would You Eat the 5 Most Exotic Foods in the World?

Absolutely yes to number 1, 2, 3 and 4. Definitely no to number 5. I am an exotic person, but I just realize I am not that exotic to eat saliva bird coming from  a bird nest.

5 of the Most Exotic Foods in the World:

KOBE BEEF

Kobe Beef comes from the best quality cows in the world. Cows fed high quality grass and beer, then they get daily massages to tenderize their meat. 1 kilo of this beef can cost $770 or more.

DENSUKE WATERMELON

Densuke Watermelon  is crisper on the inside. They are tender and very rare.  One watermelon can cost up to $6,100 dollars!

WHITE TRUFFLE

White truffles aren’t called kitchen diamonds for nothing. Their price can fetch from 2,000 to 8,000 euros per kilogram. And which country do they call the Land of Truffles? It’s Serbia alright! Serbia is the real-deal White Truffle Garden of Eden. Just one pound can cost between $1,360 and $4,200 Euros.

PULE

Priced at a staggering $600 per pound, this crumbly white cheese is not even available on the commercial market, with its high cost attributed to the considerable time and resources needed for production. While most cheeses are made using cow, goat or sheep milk, this cheese is made from the milk of a Balkan donkey, native only to Serbia and Montenegro, and requires 25 litres of milk to produce just one kilogram of Pule.

BIRDS NEST SOUP

Bird’s Nest Soup is possibly the weirdest and most expensive soup in the world and has been served in China as a delicacy for over 400 years. It is made up of the saliva nests built by birds called cave swifts and is then dissolved in water to create a gelatinous soup. It’s believed that the spit has many nutritional and medicinal uses as one pound of this spit can cost over $4,535.

Thought of the Day: I am Intelligent….and Disorganized!

Are you a disorganized person? Good news: you are intelligent! Well, that is what a scientific study tells us, known us Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking (TTCT) conducted by the University of Georgia.
NOTE:
Please, have in mind that “being disorganized” does not mean having your  house, room or office upside down, lol.

Since I was a child I had to deal with disorganization problems. I made myself to do things in an organized manner, but it was and still is a constant fight; but now I have found a magnificent and important reason to explain the way I behave, and it is simple: I am intelligent.

However, I don’t think that people who are well-organized are NOT intelligent,  au contraire.  I am just happy to have found 9 reasons to excuse my disorganization traits…and I have them all!

WHAT BEING DISORGANIZED MEAN FROM THE INTELLIGENT POINT OF VIEW:

1.  They Are Extraordinarily Creative.

2. They Have Difficulty Maintaining Focus On Things That Bore Them.

3. They Are “Addicted To Insight”.

4. They Have A Wide Variety Of Interests.

5. They Tend To Lose Track Of Time.

6. They Are Visionaries Who Often Score In The Gifted Range On Verbal IQ Tests.

7. They May Appear To Be “Geeks” Or “Know-It-Alls” To Others.

8. They Develop Strong Attachments To Often Unrelated Things And People.

9. They Want To Be Around High-Energy People.
