16 Mar Day 7 Berlin
Delicious colours of the rainbow.
One privilege of being a student is that u can get access to the very affordable prices offered by the network of mental in Berlin. A mensa is like a canteen back in Singapore, just that the main items change daily and you pick the items yourself.
I look forward to having lunch at mensa. Not only does it provide a proper sit-down meal, but the meal is also HOT n very filling.
My first distinct memory was at the mensa at HTV. It was much larger than the one at HWR*. The selection of food was much wider, and the best part was
They greeted me with a row of vibrant colours and flavours. Pink raspberry with banana, brown chocolate, beige mango flavoured. Not to mention the colourful sauces and rice pudding.
They became my staple for the lunches.
Boy, I will miss them after the two weeks intensive german lang course ’cause we will be back on HWR, in the much smaller mensa.
*and that is my school :/
** They make me so happy!! its like ice cream but healthier. And imagine ‘ice cream’ for every meal! There’s also something called ‘quark’ – it’s like a special kind of low-fat cream cheese. Yum.

I finally made my first official batch of kimchi (fermented spicy cabbage) last week with some success and now just finishing up the editing and writing part of it. My version came out pretty good–the result is a mild (as in not so spicy), fresh taste with a surprising crunch to each bite. The only thing that might have made it better would be the addition of more gochugaru (Korean red pepper flakes), which I will definitely add more the next time. Anyways, there is so much information and history on kimchi that it would take several posts, but I will keep it as brief as possible. First of all, kimchi is synonymous with Korean cooking because it’s been around thousands of years. Its production was the result of their geography–long, harsh winters made kimjang (annual ritual of making kimchi in bulk) a necessity for survival. And surprisingly, this tradition still remains in many families today (not for survival purposes obviously) as kimchi is used in so many other dishes including the likes of stir-fries, soups and stews, and condiments. Another positive appeal of kimchi these days is its many health benefits. It’s loaded with vitamins A, B, C, and carotene, but its biggest benefit may be its “healthy bacteria” called lactobacillus, found in fermented foods like kimchi and yogurt. This good bacteria helps with digestion, lowers cholesterol, and there were “supposed” instances of kimchi preventing cancer growth. Furthermore, I was even surprised (shocked more so) to hear that it made Health magazine’s list of top five “World’s Healthiest Foods” and was favorably mentioned on Dr. Oz’s show for its health benefits. It’s nice to see kimchi getting positive attention that it finally deserves. Here is the recipe in its entirety.

First Watch, The Daytime Cafe
61 W. Thomas Road
My son took me out for a belated Mother’s Day breakfast at First Watch. The phrase “first watch” is a nautical term that refers to the very first shift of the day. This chain of restaurants specializes in healthier food choices than your average breakfast/brunch cafe. A bit on the pricey side, but so delicious (and my son was paying wink). The building of this cute cafe resides in was built in 1965. I have no idea what it was prior to First Watch moving in.
From its website:
First Watch specializes in award-winning, made-to-order Breakfast, Brunch and Lunch. A recipient of more than 200 “Best Breakfast” and “Best Brunch” accolades, First Watch offers traditional favorites, such as omelets, pancakes, sandwiches and salads, and unique specialty items like Quinoa Power Bowls and the Chickichanga. Just recently, First Watch was named a 2015 Top Consumer Pick by Nation’s Restaurant News and has received other recognition including being named a 2013 “Next 20” Emerging Brand by Nation’s Restaurant News and a 2014 Top Franchise Value by FSR Magazine. First Watch is the largest and fastest-growing daytime-only restaurant concept in the U.S. with more than 130 restaurants in 18 states. It also operates 20 restaurants under The Good Egg name and one Bread & Company restaurant in Nashville (with another one under construction) in addition to the newly acquired 114 The Egg & I restaurants.

IMCOM and MEDCOM team up to promote healthy lifestyles at local fair
By Robert Dozier
U.S. Army Installation Management Command
Joint Base San Antonio (May 3, 2017) – – The U.S. Army Installation Management Command, in conjunction with the U.S. Army Medical Command and the Family Readiness Center on JBSA, held their Health and Wellness Fair at the Jimmy Brought Fitness Gym on Fort Sam Houston, to increase awareness of the importance of better lifestyle choices for Soldiers and Civilians. More than 150 attendees were presented with various health and wellness related topics.
“We’ve got booths from the AMEDD center school, from BAMC, the 502d Health, and Family Readiness Center, Army Research Laboratory, the Public Health Center, and the IMCOM Chaplain’s office,” said Col. Pauline Gross, IMCOM Command Surgeon. “We also have physicians and folks from Lackland AFB talking about sleep apnea and sleep hygiene, and things you can change in your life to make sure you sleep better.”
Student nurses from the AMEDD School set up several booths and demonstrations aligned with the Army’s performance triad, to highlight ways to get back to the basics of health, particularly sleep, activity and nutrition. Also represented were Health Promotion Nurses, the JBSA Army Wellness Center, Dental School students talking about dental hygiene, Financial and Spiritual Wellness and the Soldier For Life program.
“Don’t forget about the veterinarian adoption program,” added Paul Smith, IMCOM G1 Wellness Coordinator. “These are our both working dogs who’ve served their (Army) purpose and puppies and are moving on be adopted by a family. In addition, the Puppy Foster Volunteer Program looks for loving families to care for their dogs until they are old enough to become military working dogs or to retire from their service to DoD.
AMEDD also sent folks from the 6AF – Military Prevention Medicine.
“Those [medical] students are talking about blood pressure control, water safety, cholesterol, what types of food to eat, how to buy food with the right ingredients,” said Gross. “I have my activities folks walking, now let’s educate them about what they can put into their bodies.”
The performance triad is not about new programs or post-modern science. It is a way to focus on the core truths about how to manage fitness today.
“We want them to learn about the programs, that they can make little changes in their life to become healthy,” said Gross. “To lose weight and so on, we want them to make changes in moderation, so they will be more likely to follow that and continue on those lifestyle changes.”
“It is a legacy for longer life. As a society, we are living longer and working until the age of 70 is not so strange anymore,” said Smith. “To live better is a matter of simply changing your behavior now.”
“I realize that in order to stay active at an older age, I want to convince others to start at a younger age,” said Gross. “As a PA [Physician’s Assistant], I want people to live a healthier life. I don’t want to see them when they are sick. I believe in prevention. I know that what I’ve done [here today] will help them live a healthy lifestyle.”
“I have twin 6 year-olds. I want to fine-tune their behavior for keeping active, eating right and getting plenty of sleep before we see them off to college. Living longer means something,” said Smith. “Living an active life lets me be a role model for them and for the workforce I serve.
“I am inspired by the hope of inventor Thomas Edison, who predicted ‘the doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest patients in the care of the human frame, in a proper diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.’”
It took me a lot longer than I had expected to get these pictures up from last weekend, but it’s been hard to find time between my job and volunteering. Taking pictures just has not been the most important thing for me at this point, but nevertheless I will continue squeezing the shutter whenever I can. Hopefully, we will all be able to see the dramatic transformation of these areas back into their original beauty, but it is clearly a long road ahead.
If you live in the area and wish to help, please contact me and I will send you a list of volunteer centers throughout Miyagi as well as a list of important equipment to bring with you. If you do decide to volunteer, please go with an organized group and bring the necessary equipment. I don’t mean to frighten anyone, but I was notified again today that there still are dangerous areas. Don’t go alone, please.
Here is a video that I took of the area the same day I took these pictures:
The area that these pictures were taken, was utterly obliterated by the tsunami. After a few hours of hauling items back and forth between my friends’ destroyed home, I started to get a headache and feel sick from the fumes. In my last post, I also mentioned that I had heard of people setting off explosions and starting fires from trying to light their cigarettes.
We worked amidst pure devastation for about 5 hours, however, we were only able to salvage a handful of their things. Sometimes it was hard to know what was theirs since the tsunami had swept a whole city worth of belongings through the first floor of their home.
Surprisingly, the four-year-old house was in pretty good shape despite the fact that it was blown back off of its foundation about 200 feet and sat about 10-15 degrees off of level (in the video I said 60 feet, but I meant to say 60 meters. The distance and angle is still a total guess, but you can judge for yourself in the pictures/video). The structure of the house was in such good condition, that we were able to walk up to the second floor and salvage most of the dry, smaller items. Their daughter was just given a brand new bed and desk-set as an elementary graduation present, but we, unfortunately, could not take it out.
The reason we needed to go and salvage what we could as quickly as possible was that the house, although it did not look like it, was sitting in the middle of a road. The city and self-defense force had given them only a few more days to clear out before they would have to bulldoze it down.
I asked the family if they had tsunami insurance, but apparently there is no tsunami insurance. They will receive a small amount of money from the government, but it will not even come close to covering the damage they sustained.
The most dumbfounding part of that day for me was not the surreal experience of walking through the total destruction of an entire town, but rather the laughing and smiling that came from a family who just lost everything- everything except each other. Items and worldly possessions are of little value against the people we hold dear. I tried to reciprocate the smiles, laughter, and healthy conversation (especially in light of the children), but it wasn’t easy fighting off the grim emotions lurking below the surface.
This last weekend, I was able to volunteer for a short time in Downtown Ishinomaki and also take a few more pictures/video The downtown area seems to be getting a lot more attention, and about half of the roads seem traversable. Downtown also felt incredibly safe during the day time due to the dozens of police and military (both Japanese and US) walking the streets and distributing food and water at the camps. I will post those pictures later this week.
I know my website is in shambles right now (I just have not had time), but I’m hoping to have it looking nicer as soon as possible. I’ve never really sold anything from my website, but I’m going to donate all of the money I earn from ANY of the pictures I sell (not just the quake photos) to Red Cross Japan for at least the next year. Please take it into consideration. Here is my site:
In addition, I contributed many of my pictures to QUAKEBOOK.org, and if you have never heard this organization, PLEASE check them out as well. All of Quakebook’s revenue will also go towards Red Cross Japan.
Lastly, you can contribute directly to Red Cross Japan here:
Thank you very much for facing this tragedy with us. With cooperation, strength, and perseverance, we can accomplish anything.
