NATTO+GREEN TEA ICE CREAM

nato7One day, I found an article about a strange arranged Japanese food.  The writer says, he saw people eating Natto&Green tea ice cream on TV.  Currently Japanese natto is famous in foreign countries for health, but as you know, most foreigners hate natto’s smell.  However, according to the writer, American girls on TV were enjoying eating the natto and green tea ice cream.  I can’t believe it even it may be like Turkish ice cream which is sticky but delicious.  Additionally, America has an ice cream shop which sells natto ice cream, he says.  I unfortunately could not find any English article besides this, so this has no credibility if this recipe is really famous in foreign…  But I am sure that this recipe courage people to eat natto because it must conceal the weird smell of natto.  I don’t have brave to eat this though…

The people obsessed with plastic dolls.

First, what do you think about them? They are actually not dolls. These real life dolls currently became famous in the world. The 20-year-old girl from Ukraine, Valeria Lukyanova obviously turned herself into a living Barbie doll. She got only “one” job (breast implants) done to get a perfect Barbie body (Although majority of people say of course she got more than one surgery… ). Real life Ken, Justin Jedlica  also got many surgeries. He spent around 100,000 dollars on 90 surgeries.
According to the interview, Lukyanova  is happy to have this appearance even she had an operation . She said “A doll is an image of an ideal women.” They made a lot of controversial idea about getting cosmetic surgery. Some say they are beautiful, others say they are just creepy. Here’s a video of her interview.

One day, a woman found a wounded small kitten. It was inflicted by crows. She took it to animal hospital. And, she posted about the kitten on her twitter. Many people reacted her tweet. She started to post about the kitten every day instead of dairy. She names the kitten “Wasabi”. Wasabi-chan was getting well little by little. It has very big eyes and small body(about 500g). Many people’s hearts are healed. And also Wasabi-chan teach us “Live strong”. It is actually small, and weak. However, Wasabi-chan tries to live strong. It is growing. I was moved. I recommend you check the Twitter!
