d.s. music restaurant in taipei

D.S. Music Restaurant

Apparently due to a man’s love for the medical care he received at at Taiwanese hospital, he decided to start up the D.S. Music Restaurant in Taipei-a completely medical themed restaurant. The founder, Ou, spent 5 million NT$, outfitting the restaurant with medical gear and costumes. Water is served from an IV drip like vat from the ceiling, and crutches hang on the walls. Appropriately, the bathroom is called the “Emergency Room”.

Can’t stop indulging in water? Gaining too many extra kilos? Wish there were a better way to diet?

Sapparo has got you covered with new Diet Water.

Now this is what I need to pull off my all Kimchi diet.

crazy grimpoteuthis caught my eye



I’m really into deep sea creatures-they’re super cool, with their crazy, out-of-this-world alien looks and crazy designs. I had been meaning to ask for a while now, but today, I finally found out the name of the above animal. “Grimpoteuthis”.

Wikipedia, the guide to all that is right and correct in the world, told me, with extreme pronoun usage:

“[Grimpoteuthis] are benthic creatures, living at extreme depths: 300-400 meters, and are some of the rarest of the Octopoda species. They can flush the transparent layer of their skin at will, and are pelagic animals, as with all other cirrate octopuses, and unlike many other incirrate octopuses.

They hover above the sea floor, searching for worms, bivalves, pelagic copepods, and other crustaceans. They move by pulsing their arms, shooting water through their funnel, or by waving their ear-like fins. They can use each of these techniques separately or all simultaneously. The males and females are different in their size and sucker patterns. The females lay eggs consistently, with no distinct breeding season.”

All I can say is: I want to eat it.

mater convolvulus is now my favourite vegetable


mater convolvulus

Mater convolvulus (空心菜), the beautiful vegetable with a terrible English name, is a wonderful edible item. Lightly touched to the hot iron with a bit of garlic and uncut scallions, and this crunchy yet pungent veggie makes your mouth happy, your stomach full, and is light on calories too.
