Fish comparison

A big one is Kuro-dai, black porgy. And a small one is Kodai, vynnis.
Both are same group of snapper.
Kuro-dai is easy to say. Kuro means black, black snapper is kuro-dai.
And ko means small, ko-dai is small dai.

Koda, Evynnis

I got a small size sea bream. It is called kodai, or chidai.
Sea bream is called madai. All fish names with dai is a group of snapper.
It is wild caught and from Japan.

Torrontes

Have you had Torrontes?
Torrontes is a name of grape, from Argentina.
It is called “White Malbec”.
It is getting popular with its taste and price.

Something from Japan

This is a healthy rice mix.
We add this when cook rice.
There 16 different grains are inside.
We had good life and good meal when we were young. But not any more. I do not say because of American fast food. But it is right in some parts.
Rice consumption is decreasing year by year.
Rice is better than bread but bread is easier to eat than rice.
We are more focusing to our healthy life when we get old.
My sister sent me this. And I will try soon.

Strong bone and weak bone

I show you 2 different fishes.
The big one is Hiramasa, small hamachi. And small one is Black porgy, a kind of snapper.
It is very funny. the small fish bone is stronger and hard to cut.
The big hiramasa is very easy to cut.
There is a good reason.
Hiramasa is farm-raised in Australia. And Black porgy is wild in Japan.
This is my guess. Wild fish eat good food and make strong body. But farm-raised fish eat man-made food. And body is not strong.
I can say same thing as human beings. We need to eat good food to build our body strong.
If you eat fast food every day or weekly, your body is OK body. The outside looks good but inside is very weak. What do you think?
