Why Italy?!

If anyone ask wht country  I most want to visit, I can’t say other country than Italy…
Yup, maybe people around me already boring hearing me talk about Italy.. Lol^^ But, that’s why I feel, I have big enthusiasm with this country. Seems u can enjoy anything in Italy, ur life can full lively in Italy.
This time, I want list 7 reasons why I love Italy:

I must start by saying that I love history and especially ancient history and Italy is a big part of that history with the roman empire, also a big part of the Christian history. The sole historic weight of this country makes it wroth the visit for anybody who wants to learn anything about mankind's history or see some historic places.

We all know that the Catholic church is centered in Vatican which is a state situated in Rome and pope is number one world Catholic leader is living in the there. As a Catholic, i really want to take misa in one of great historical church and also meet the Pope and singing with great choirs in Vatican. Sounds cool right?!^^ But not just St.Peter Basilica, I want come inside and capture of every single great architecture churchs in Italy.  

           But Italy is not only a country full of historical old places to visit. In other parts, Italy also has some of the most wonderful scenery you can imagine. Whether you're in Sicily, Naples or Milan you will enjoy beautiful sight. It might be a little village full of charming people, the extraordinary view of the Mediterranean sea or the magnificent city of Venice you will surly find something to feed your camera with.

               Italy is very known for its gondola, even many countries has copy the gondola idea as travel business in their country. Gondola rides are a must for every tourist visiting Italy, include me. I feel the romantic ride gondola when sun go down, enjoy sunset while listen great voice from handsome gondolier..^^ Will be perfect if someone accompany me, anyone?!^^

                  One thing that could be a let down though is the food, while I do love cheese and Italian food  is full of cheese, that they put cheese on everything, on pizza, pasta, spaghetti. I’m also fond of ice cream, and Italy is famous with its gelato. My Italian native teacher in my country said that pizza and gelato taste in my country is different than in Italy, that’s why I want come to Italy for the great one from Italian hand cook.

          Ah, dolce far niente! It is also known as the sweetness of doing nothing. A term such as the art of doing nothing  implies something more than sitting in a lazy boy in front of a television set. It demands more from us. The art of doing nothing and doing it well could be realized in many ways. For some it may be accomplished by sipping tea by the fire, with a cat softly purring nearby, or by watching a baby sleep. For others the art is practiced by taking the time to share a story or two with the locals at the market. But for me, maybe I will sitting on chair near piazza while lick yummy gelato and observe what people doing around me especially Italiano.. lol..^^

         I love Italian language.. Many people consider Italian as the most beautiful spoken language in the world, and I am one of them. It seems u not just speak it but moreover sing it, give special rhythm to each word.  Besides that, Italian use their body in special circumstances to communicate. Mostly Italians use body language and hand gestures to punctuate an expression and give it a shading that the word or phrase itself lacks. 

Wish can realize all..^0^

Tutte le strade portano a Roma!

My Top 10 Bizarre Restaurants in the World

There are more then 100 million restaurants in this world. You can find it from cheap to expensive foods. Due to massive opening restaurants in one place so they create something interesting that can attract the visitors to come. Here are my top 10 bizarre, strange, unique theme restaurants:

10. Medical Restaurant in Taipei

Taipei is known for its variety of strangely themed dining establishments, but this one might just take the cake. D.S.Music Restaurant decorating the room like a hospital, the service was dressed like a nurse push you to your table in wheelchairs, where your drinks are served from an IV-like contraption hanging from the ceiling.

9. Toilet Restaurant in Taiwan

Perhaps the best-known strangely themed restaurant is Modern Toilet in Taipei, Taiwan, where hungry customers take a seat on Western-style commodes and enjoy feces-shaped chocolate soft serve in miniature toilet bowls. Toilet rolls are hung over the tables for use as napkins, and drinks come in miniature urinals. The toilet theme continues throughout the restaurant, with ‘WC’ signs hung as décor.

8. Underwater Restaurant in Maldives

Introduced the first underwater restaurant at the Hilton Maldives Resort & Spa, April 2007. Restaurant named Ithaa (read eet-ha) means Pearl in the language of the Maldives, Dhivehi, is 5 meters below the Indian Ocean which is surrounded by coral and underwater panorama. This is the first restaurant to the underwater category.

7. Condom Restaurant in Thailand

Cabbages & Condoms in Bangkok, Thailand  is the only restaurant in world dedicated to birth control. There are so many condoms hanging in wall and decorated in carpet. After eat, visitor will given condom from cashier. Their slogan, emblazoned on t-shirts in the gift shop, is “Our food is guaranteed not to cause pregnancy”. Menu items include the ‘Spicy Condom Salad’, fried Shanghai noodles spiced with herbs. The restaurant benefits the Population and Community Development Association (PDA).
6. Robot-Staffed Restaurant – Nuremburg, Germany

One restaurant in Nuremburg, Germany cut out waitstaff altogether, relying on robots instead. Alas, they weren’t walking, talking robots wearing aprons or anything really fun like that. Rather, it was centered around automation – customers ordered via touch screens, and moments later the food traveled to their tables on a spiral slide. It might have saved diners money on tips, but apparently the concept didn’t go over too well, as the restaurant was not open long.

5. The Hellfire Club in Manchester, UK

This is one of creepy theme restaurant in world. The Hellfire Club, with its gothic décor and creepy theme  located in a reportedly haunted 19th century building and resembles a dungeon, with skeletons, coffins and red lights strewn throughout. Menu items include steaks named ‘Kiss of the Vampire’ and ‘Cannibal Holocaust’.

4. Dinner in the Sky


Dinner in the Sky is one of the restaurants in Brussels which provide food for 22 people. Of course, at an altitude of 150 feet! Places to eat in a special design to be lifted using a crane and served meals like ham salad and sauteed prawns that are cooked in a small oven in the center of the structure. Visitors are free to determine the location of the height of interest, as long as not to drop the fork and knife.

3. Devil Island Restaurant

The owner of the Devil Island restaurants in China reportedly wanted to scare people away from a life of crime by showing them just how rough prison life can be – through a jail-themed restaurant where you’re led to your table in handcuffs and served fried coffin-shaped bread. Each table is surrounded by rusting prison bars, and you’re served by waiters in black-and-white striped uniforms. A similar restaurant in Beijing is misleadingly named ‘Zen Cool’.

2. Ninja Restaurant in New York

Ninja restaurant is served in a rather unusual restaurant, one in which no expense was spared to create an atmosphere that one reviewer described as “Ninja Disneyland”. Guests are led to the subterranean eatery through a “secret path” where “ninjas” lurk in the shadows, and brought to a table housed within a dungeon-like chamber.  The ninja waiters perform magic tricks that extend into the meal, like sauces that catch on fire.

1. Cannabalistic Sushi in Tokyo

"Nyotaimori" which means the female body is one of the name plate in the Japanese restaurant that serves sushi and sashimi on the bodies of women. The bodies are made from food and placed on the operating table like in the hospital. Visitors can take the body anywhere. The body of the cut will bleed, just like pieces of human body. The hostess begins the meal by cutting into the body with a scalpel and then patrons dig in, operating on the body to reveal edible ‘organs’.
