This spiral shaped algae is a rich food source. For a long time (centuries) this algae has constituted a significant part of the diet of many communities. Since the 1970's, Spirulina has been well known and widely used as a dietary supplement in some countries.
Spirulina contains rich vegetable protein (60~ 63 %, 3~4 times higher than fish or beef ), multi Vitamins (Vitamin B 12 is 3~4 times higher than animal liver), which is particularly lacking in a vegetarian diet. It contains a wide range of minerals (including Iron, Potassium, Magnesium Sodium, Phosphorus, Calcium etc.), a high volume of Beta- carotene which protects cells (5 time more than carrots, 40 time more than spinach), high volumes of gamma-Linolein acid (which can reduce cholesterol and prevent heart disease). Further, Spirulina contains Phycocyanin which can only be found in Spirulina.
Benefits of spirulina
• Supports the immune system
• Helps in the repair of DNA
• Many people taking spirulina find they have more energy
• Lowers cholesterol - Japanese and Indian studies have found that taking several grams of spirulina every day lowers cholesterol. In these studies, serum low density lipoproteins (the 'bad' cholesterol)
was reduced, and high density lipoproteins (the 'good' cholesterol) were increased.
• improvement in the functioning of heart arteries, which is important for sufferers of high blood pressure.
You can be sure you're getting the best deal here.
As much as I hate to admit, we parents are the ones that stress them up. I could easily point my fingers at other parents, because they want their kids to be so freaking bright, they start sending their kids to school at the age of 2! And by the time they are 4, they are good enough to be reading the enid blyton series, I'm kidding not!
So enough of finger pointing, me, as a mother, do not want my kids to be left behind, so I too start sending my kids to school early and enroll them for additional classes. So you tell me, who's fault is it anyway? You or me? Cut the crap, it's all of us, the parents.
Poor kids, the one we love so much, get so stressed up all because we parents are all damn freaking kiasu. Enough said.

Seriously, this? China are known to be copycats, they do the best imitation stuffs, everything from designers handbags to vertu mobile phone. Everything is so precisely same, right up to the bolt and nuts.
So, seriously are they going to attempt this? A bus as wide as a two lane roads, and vehicles driving through it? If yes, oh I'm impressed!
If you happened to google this problem and found me, please drop me a comment- I mean a solution. Thanks!

An 18 year-old girl tells her Mom that she has missed her
period for two months. Very worried, the mother goes to the
drugstore and buys a pregnancy kit. The test result shows
that the girl is pregnant.
Shouting, cursing, crying, the mother says, 'Who was the pig that did this to you? I
want to know!'
The girl picks up the phone and makes a call.
Half an hour later a Ferrari stops in front of their house;
a mature and distinguished man with grey hair and impeccably
dressed in a very expensive suit steps out of the Ferrari
and enters the house. He sits in the living room with the
father, the mother and the girl and tells them: 'Good
morning, your daughter has informed me of the problem.
However, I can't marry her because of my personal
family situation but I'll take charge. I will pay all
costs and provide for your daughter for the rest of her life.
Additionally, if a girl is born I will bequeath her 2
retail stores, a townhouse, a beachfront villa and a
$1,000,000 bank account. If a boy is born, my legacy will
be a couple of factories and a $2,000,000 bank account. If
twins, a factory and $2,000,000 each. However, if
there is a miscarriage, what do you suggest I do?'
At this point, the father, who had remained silent, places a
hand firmly on the man's shoulder and tells him,
'You'll sleep with her again!'
Have a good one.
Enjoy your long weekend.
Oh, at times like this, driving around town is such a bliss. So wide roads, so little cars. Love it!

But, oh man, don't you just love their creativity? And I mean, that requires hell lot of patience and precious time.
I admit, as much as I love my kids, never ever will I even attempt any of this. Crazy cute bento sets!
