[1] Just pour 1 table spoon of coffee and boil water
[2] close the thermos for couple minutes
[3] open the thermos, pour the coffee to glass and you can have fine black coffee

I think the pressure make the coffee even better. What to try? ^^

244th_paper_crane

Place: Campus Toyohashi University of Technology

Paper: Japanese traditional pattern paper craft

Story: paper crane with chain of blue and white Light-Emitting Diode (LED). Blue color is the latest color that can be produce using LED. Now the white bright LED is used as the echo friendly device, for example, car and road lamp. And the most up to date device that using LED is television. This is the next generation after plasma. It claimed as the lowest power consumption and you can find it very expensive.

Why television? It is because every house has television. Even when every house turn in off or stand-by condition, it still wasted lots of electricity. So if every house can save this wasted electricity, then maybe we can save our future energy.

It shown that color is not just a physical component, there need an intention to sense it. I think it the same with how we "see" person. Whether the person look good or not, it not just depend on his/her appearance but also depend on your intention.

Nakauchi-sensei gave me bonus, Belgium chocolate. I choose white chocolate with coffee cream and chocolate with peanut butter. Yummy.... (^,^)
