Taka’s Update December 15 2008

This week Fish

I will get new tuna shipment on today. Everything is all right except world economy. We need to help each other.

A: Americans like TV game.

More than half of American adults enjoy TV game. 1 out of 5 play daily. 97% of teenagers play it. In detail, 55% of men and 50% of women play, 81% of 18-29 years old, 60% of 30-49 years old, 40% of 50-64 years old and 23% of more than 65 years old enjoy the TV game. How about me? I don’t have ant TV game at home. My business is a big game and gold is also a big game. Both are real.

B: A Christmas present from the God.

Can you believe it? You can get extra 1 second at the end of this year. IERS is a part of United Nations. It is called intercalary second. The error margin of the rotation of the earth on its axis and the atomic clock is corrected. It depends on. But this year we get a second after 6:59 pm 59 seconds on December 31st Eastern time zone. It started in 1972 and the last time adjustment was 2005-2006. Everybody can get this 1 second for free and equally.

Cannot sleep? Try this.

Can you sleep at cold night? Do you use AC all night? I hate using AC all the time. My house get dry and my skin condition is getting bad. I prefer cool inside of house. If I use humidifier, windows or doors get wet and get mold. So what is a solution? I do use oil heater when I sleep. I heat up with AC and I turn off when I sleep. And turn on oil heater. Oil heater makes oil warm and oil pipes get warm and make air warm. How about AC? They burn gas and send dry air into the rooms. This is really bad for our skin.
And I tell you how to get deep sleep easily. You can take a shower and make your body warm. But you can bathe foot about 5 minutes and make your foot warm. This is the best way. Your blood circulation get better and can sleep well.
This is also good for your body. You have to blood make move around all your body all the time. But we can not sometimes. If blood cannot move around, that part is getting cold. And get some problem. Massage is good for the body and has same effect.
Hot water is better for foot, I think. Please try at cold night or over working day.

Kinmedai, Alfonsino

Some fish are good for sashimi and sushi and some are good for cooking.
Kinmedai is good for both. This fish has big eyes and has a lot of gelatin around eyes. We cannot dumo this and have to eat. It is available only 2 a week.
Kinmedai is very expensive fish and cannot order 5 or 6 a week.
It is deep ocean fish and has good fat. So, nituke style cooking is the best. We cook a little bit sweet with mirin and sugar. I normally cook 20 minutes and pour dashi around head and wrap with foil and circulate dashi all head.
One of customers kid hold an eye ball. Do we eat it? Yes, we eat. I cannot say how good for our body. But try it. It is a great experience for you and your family. Fish head contains great meat.
Ask me when you are ready.

One of super premium sake from Japan.

This sake is called Koshino Kanbai Cho-tokusen.
I got this from Japan directly. I called my sister to get from auction site. It is hard to buy this kinds of super premium sake.
Some are more than $400 per bottle.
One of my friend asked me to get this and I did.

Bigeye tuna Dec. 11 2008

This is stomach side but not much toro. I can say between chutoro and small toro. Also have oh toro but same quality.
Tuna is not easy business. It depends on each shipment.
If I could get good tuna every time, I would drive a Ferrari.
It is very good tuna as red meat.
It is available all this weekend.
