The ultimate drink for hangovers?

19 Oct

How many times haven’t you been hangover and thought: “WHY isn’t there something I can drink or eat to get better?” We al

l know the immediate answer to that. Start the next day by taking a drink, or maybe a beer… or even better, two beers. But that cure, if we could call it that, would infact turn into a nasty habit after a while. So for the better of sundays and the days we just have to get better to get back to our daily lives. Is there a magic drink? Is it called Ukon no Chikara?

Ukon is infact a turmeric. A plant closely related to ginger. The drink that contains this plant is claimed to have scientific evidence for preventing hangovers. It’s even been said to help prevent cancer and enhancing liver functions, as well as having no strong claims of negative side effects for adults.

This product is by no means new to the market. They started selling it in 2004 and still going strong.

So, back to the point. Will the Ukon Anti-Hangover drink work as intended? Only you can decide on that. Do you believe? I on the other hand have never had the same gravity of hangovers while staying in Tokyo compared to the day after a night out here in Oslo. So is it the jet lag? The amount of food we eat there? The sake? The Ramen? The Ukon no Chikara that does the trick? I really don’t know. And I guess I need a couple more trips to really find the answer …. Looking forward to it 🙂

If you want to test this drink even if you’r not in Tokyo, you can buy it here at our friends the White Rabbit Express:

This app for iPhone might be the new friend to inspire you when you’r at the local sushibar. It’s a very nice presentation of many of the different types of sushi out there.

It may be a bit too americanized in the way the sushi and maki are presented. But nevertheless its a fantastic app I recommend for all you sushilovers out there.

And it’s FREE 😀


Sanyo Microcomputer rice cooker

25 Feb

WE WANT this! This is a rice cooker for the Europeans and the ones who use 230V stuff. When we roamed around Tokyo browsing the large electronic apartment stores. There was one cute, yet stylish rice cooker that stood out from the others. This Sanyo.

Here in Norway it’s impossible to get your hands on a regular sized rice cooker. We’ve only found large bulky white plastic  bad brand cookers at the price of approx. $45 . Imagine the quality! But the one thing that stopped us was the weight of this beauty. “How many videgames/shoes/figures do we have to throw out of the luggage to get this one in?”
