Mandarin Kitchen Seafood Restaurant @ Bayswater

Every Yogi must watch this..The Fuzz between Muscle Tissue and Fascia

Image
“The fuzz” are strands of cobweb-like connective tissue that develop between the muscles and between muscle groups when we fail to move our bodies around in all the magnificent ways it can move. These strands of connective tissue multiply and bind together during long periods of inactivity (like when we sleep). As time passes the fascia thickens and hardens between those once juicy, smooth and slippery surfaces rendering them less and less able to slide and glide past one another. As the individual muscles lose their ability to move freely and independently of other muscles our movements become less multi-dimensional and refined. We call this ‘stiff’.

Che Chai noodles" is also a Hong Kong traditional food.

Trucks selling cendol and rojak are still extremely popular. One can often see a long line of cars parked along busy roads, just for that refreshing shaved ice and hot crispy fritters. If the crowd does not come to you, it is never a bad idea to go to them. Some restaurants send their vans to office areas dishing out hot food.
