Green Tea

Just got back ahout an hour ago. We had gone for drinks after the meeting. We were still talking about our Japan trip. I was telling them that for the past few days, I've been watching the NHK channel on Astro. It gives me the feeling that I'm still in Japan, in a hotel room. I guess it's because I enjoyed the holiday and this was just one of the way to let that good feeling linger just a little bit longer. Then I found out that I wasn't the only one, JC1 said that after her trip to China, she would tune into the Chinese channels too.

Well, I must mention about the food I had in Japan. Not to be missed was naturally green tea ice cream. I managed to eat four of them over the 5 days there. It was really good. The ones at Universal Studio and the airport especially. Actually, I jumped at the chance for anything with green tea. The Green Tea cream puff is also something to die for! Well, I once saw an episode of Oprah where it was revealed that if we were to substitute our coffee or tea with green tea for 6 weeks, we should be able to lose 10 lbs. Great! Having green tea ice cream and cream puffs for 6 weeks isn't so hard to do! I'm sure I can stick to this routine! LOL ....



Sorry, I had actually taken a bite of them before I remembered to take a shot of it! Both were so sinfully delicious. It's usually the case, I have yet to come across any tasty health food! Hah! Alfalfa- yucks, spirulina - bleh, flax seed - what? me eat this sand? Ha ha ha...

But enough of Japan for now. Let's talk Korean for awhile. I'm off to watch today's episode of My Lovely Sam Soon. Thank goodness for the internet. I can hear my handsome Daniel Henney's voice. The one showing on TV has been dubbed to Mandarin whereas the ones on the internet is in the original format with English subtitles! Yay!

Daniel appeared on tv when u were in Japan :) Hiya I'm addicted to the show. They sell original format VCDs with Chinese subtitles here. I think u can only find the English subtitles one in the States & on the Net. They are blasting the MTV VCD of the show at S&M also.Nice songs

"Sorry, I had actually taken a bite of them before I remembered to take a shot of it! Both were so sinfully delicious." is very funny. :)

p/s I think drinking green tea without sugar or cream instead of coffee (with sugar and cream) will help someone lose weight. I don't know if eating ice cream and cream puffs made out of green tea for 6 weeks will or not.

That's what I thought :) But the thought of "eating green tea is good for losing weight" at the time of eating and ice cream or cream puff, enhance the experience of each luscious bite.
