Author: Alex  |  Category: Entertainment

Not too sure how many of you out there have actually heard of an oxygen bar. Basically an oxygen bar is a facility which offers concentrated oxygen for inhalation.

The concept of the oxygen bar was pioneered in Japan in the late 1990s, and it quickly spread to the Western United States. Individual flavored scents may be added to enhance the experience. The flavors in an oxygen bar come from bubbling oxygen through bottles containing aromatic solutions before it reaches the nostrils: most bars use food-grade particles to produce the scent, but some bars use aroma oils. Not too sure what are the health benefits. Maybe it will help to sooth lung related ailment such as mesothelioma.

The insatiable appetite of Chinese everywhere for bird’s nest has spawned a multi-million ringgit swiftlet farming business in Malaysia. For centuries, chinese has been been eating a special bird nest that is actually made of bird saliva from Aerodramus Fuciphagus species of swiftlet. Recognized for its health and wellness benefits in Chinese medicine, the Chinese has been using it traditionally for generations as a health tonic, by pregnant women, women after giving birth, for digestion and for lung ailments. It is also believed to regenerate the skin and prevent premature aging.Some cosmetic companies in Asia are also using birds nest in their masks to treat the skin. Sheet masks soaked in birds nest when applied to the face will leave the skin glowing, has anti aging benefits, moisturizes and also used for acne treatment. So what exactly is swiftlet farming?

Originally, bird nests are collected from caves but entrepreneurs have found a better way to harvest them more effectively. Swiftlet farmers have converted shop lots into cave-like environment to attract these swiftlets. Bird nests collected in such premises are much cleaner then those from the caves, thus cutting down on cleaning cost. Swiftlet farmers claim that break-even is within two years. Look into this if this is something for you.

Themed cafe is not a new concept. Many has come up with great ideas such as prison-themed cafe, cave-themed cafe or even toilet-themed cafe that is actually quite a good appetite suppressant. In Japan, there is actually a vampire-themed cafe. If you are wondering whether blood is on the menu, the answer is NO. The snug rooms are piped with Baroque music and creatively decorated with crucifixes, spiders, skulls, Dracula’s coffin. and etc.  (Sounds like home to any Gothic Lolita.) Thick, beaded drapes ensure that any naughty behavior in the booths won’t make the rounds on the Internet. The waitresses dress in Gothic French maid outfits and the waiters wear tuxedos.

Rather interesting don’t you think.

Who would have thought of this? A vending machine that dispenses food fresh from the farm. In many countries, farmers are being bullied by large wholesalers and hypermarkets. All they could do is to see all their hard work being sold at price that is much lower than what is sold to the consumers. However, one farm in Germany has devised an interesting strategy that may just change the entire game plan.


Introducing Peter-und-Paul-Hof. What they did was to collaborate with vending manufacturer to specially design machines to sell fresh milk, eggs, potatoes and other farm products. What a great idea. This idea may just work for other products too for example healthy food that can be placed in strategic locations to show people how to lose belly fat fast.

Well… are you sick of your jobs? Don’t know what to do after you graduated? Still at a cross road deciding which career direction to choose? Why not take up something called “Vocation Vacation”?

Vocation Vacations’ founder Brian Kurth realized that many people out there are doing things that they don’t enjoy so he came up with the idea of making it possible for others to test the waters without having to quit their jobs. Customers use the ‘Dream Job Finder’ to pick a job they did like to try out. They’re matched with a mentor in the field, depending on their location and schedule. ‘They can choose to become apprentices to expert in a variety of industries such as fashion, construction, photographers, etc.

Whether the plan is to jump-start a new career, pursue your passions or just enjoy a new adventure, the point is to let participants experience the reality of their dream job. You might just end up in a place where you always dreamed off. For me is working in a cancun hotel as a life guard.

When talk about houses, most of us are familiar with homes being built or constructed. Have you heard of manufactured home or prefabricated home?

Introducing “The Quik House”. It is a prefabricated kit house designed by Adam Kalkin from recycled shipping containers. A typical Quik House  has three bedrooms and two and one-half baths in its 2,000 square foot plan. Imagine an exterior of the house that can be constructed within a day, wouldn’t that be ideal when you need to press for time. The shell assembles within one day at your site, you will have a fully enclosed building. From start to finish, it should take no longer than three months to complete your house. This is another great way to ensure that containers are not gone to wasteland.

Vending Machine with Organic Food

Author: Alex  |  Category: Vending Machines

One of the main causes of obesity in my opinion is the accessibility to a variety of unhealthy and fattening food. Healthy snack can be some difficult to find in places. Even vending machine are stuffed with junk food and carbonated drinks with high level of sugar content. No wonder people put on weight and guess what, dietitian and drug companies that claims to offer the best diet pills makes tons of money to get people in shape. Although these methods can help reduce weight, they are symptomatic relief and not fundamental solutions. The only way to get in good shape is to control the input, which is the amount and type of food.

Lo Fresco, a company that responded to the call for healthier food by supplying vending machines filled with organic produce. Their emphasis is on solid nutritional value such as nuts, prepared fruit, ready meals and Spanish specialty, gazpacho soup.

I wish more companies can go into this direct especially those who are already in the organic food industry.
