Kiko Mizuhara on Alexander Wang Spring 2018 Ready-to-Wear New York Fashion Week

0

Kiko Mizuhara walks for Alexander Wang SS 2018 Ready-to-Wear collection at New York Fashion Week earlier today.

All 32 models went around in the #WangFest party bus and stopped at Bushwick, Brooklyn where the models stepped out of the party bus and walked on the streets for the show.

Honestly, Kiko is not tall so I'm always pleasantly surprised whenever I see her walking for fashion shows outside Japan. While Kiko was the shortest model among the bunch, I think there were other shorter models as well (like Alice Dellal, listed as 165cm).

Other models that walked on the show were:
Kaia Gerber
Suki Waterhouse
Alice Dellal
Stella Lucia
EZ
Cara Taylor
Celine Bouly
Natalie Westling
Kat Hessen
Mica Argañaraz
Selena Forrest
Sohyun Jung
Issa Lish
Emm Arruda
Kiki Willems
Sora Choi
Alice Metza
Emily May Baker
Lex Herl
Hanne Gaby Odiele
Candice Swanepoel
Grace Elizabeth
Vittoria Ceretti
Kendall Jenner
Catherine McNeil
Binx Walton
Jessie Bloemendaal
Joan Smalls
Sarah Brannon
Bella Hadid
Anna Ewers

林憶蓮
激情

思海中的波濤滔滔不息飛躍起
心窩中的激情終於不可關閉起
當初喜歡孤獨要愛卻害怕交出愛
你那野性眼神偏偏將戀火惹起
Take my breath away
Take my breath away

火一般的激情滔滔不息因你起
當中一雙戀人甘心給戀火灼死
漆黑之中等待你再次與我一起
火一般的嘴唇浪漫地令我不羈
My love Take my breath away

肌膚都緊張地拉緊 只因你就蕩來
不可轉彎的一顆心 不管有沒未來
仍留在禁地 賭賭我運氣
Take my breath away
Take my breath away

火一般的激情滔滔不息因你起
今天只得單程即使終於給灼死
漆黑之中等待你再親身交低你
火一般的嘴唇浪漫地令我不羈

恥ずかしいなんて思っちゃだめさ
リズムに合わせて歌ってみよう
どんなことでもいい

そんな時は 僕に
ついておいで 歌おう

Review: What is Quorn and is it safe to eat?

0

This packaging of the mince variant I've bought looks different (and it was just 200g) but I forgot to take a photo

I'm not sure how long they have been available here in the Philippines, but I just noticed them a few days before Holy Week this year. Since a lot of Filipinos minimizes (if not totally abstaining) consuming red meat during Holy Week, the supermarket near where I live prominently displayed alternatives to red meat around that time, thus I first noticed Quorn- a meat-free protein product

This is too much information but I've suffered from chronic constipation ever since I was a kid. My diet is more balanced as a child/teen but now I predominantly eat meats and carbs so I've been trying to incorporate more fiber and vegetables in my life. 

Quorn™ is cheap. I can't remember the exact price but it was less than 100php (less than $2) for 200g of the mince variety. It has a 5g of fiber per serving and a decent amount of protein (14g) so I decided to give it a try.

While Quorn™ is meatless, it is not a vegan product because it contains egg.

The ingredients are: Mycoprotein, Free Range Egg White Powder, Natural Caramelized Sugar, Gluten-Free Roasted Barley Malt Extract, Calcium Acetate (stabilizer), Calcium Chloride (firming agent)

There is also an allergy information on the package, warning people that there are rare cases of allergic reactions to Mycoprotein. They also claim that the protein and fiber content in the product may cause intolerance to some people.

Their main ingredient is Mycoprotein, which was derived from a mould/fungus called "Fusarium Venenatum". On the package it says the product is produced by fermentation.

Is Quorn safe to eat? I believe it's not any more dangerous than the usual (processed) foods that most people eat on a daily basis. Plus Mycoprotein allergy is rarer compared to say, peanuts or soya. If in doubt, don't eat too much all at once. Cook it way before the meal time, consume a small amount then store it in the fridge in the meantime. They say allergic reactions should start at around 45 minutes after consuming it, so if a few hours has passed and nothing still, you're most likely not allergic to it.

According to the instructions on the package, it says you need to simmer it in medium heat for 7 minutes in your chosen sauce.

I wanted to use it for stir fry, but you have to cook it direct from the freezer and the mince chunks got stuck together into big lumps so I really can't skip simmering it. After cooking it in garlic and (a lot) of seasoning/condiments, Quorn™ itself is still somewhat bland. 

Quorn

Will I buy it again? I don't know. It's cheap, so I might consider buying the other variants in the future just for the sake of trying it out but I think I'll stick with tofu for now. Even though tofu doesn't have much fiber content and it has less protein content than Quorn, it's still cheaper and absorbs flavor better. Tofu also has less ingredients (note: depending on the brand, I've also seen some tofu packages with a lot of seemingly unnecessary ingredients), and the actual manufacturing process of tofu is clearer. Any leftovers with Quorn also has to be consumed within 24 hours (obviously as long as it was stored covered inside the fridge) which is a bummer. I often cook food in advanced (when I have ample time) and like storing them in the fridge so I can just heat them up. Knowing that I can't consume them after a day lessens the prospects of me buying it again.
