Kangen Water – Making waves in 5 Star Restaurants

I told you so! I am not the only one that loves her Kangen water machine. The best in the world does also. Don’t believe me go to http://www.lifechanging-water.com. You need one in your business and at home your body will love you for it.

The Enagic technology and Kangen Water have been in the Japanese marketplace for many years and are used for both commercial and consumer application. Just like any great product, given enough time, it will spread beyond its local borders and will make its way to other cities, regions and
countries. As more and more people learn about Kangen Water, it has started showing up in more and more places all around the globe, including some of the best restaurants in the world. As the highest quality product of its kind in the market, the Enagic technology has garnered a reputation of providing outstanding craftsmanship, dependability and performance to produce different grades of waters, which offer a variety of different uses and benefits. It is with great pride that we announce that the Enagic technology and Kangen Water are being used in the restaurants of the 5-Star Mandarin Oriental Taipei Hotel in Taipei, Taiwan.

 

Mr. Sukasem M.C. Lin, the owner of the hotel, is a man of both traditional and modern appreciation worldwide. His grandparents operated a hotel in his youth, something which deeply influenced  his decision to enter into the hospitality industry. In 2014 Mr. Lin realized his goal of the complete renovation of the Mandarin Oriental Taipei. He insisted on only the highest quality products for the hotel and dedicated a total of 10 years to complete the renovation. Beautiful decorative stones for different parts of the hotel were imported from Europe and every part of the hotel was designed by top designers from around the world. This hotel is full of Mr. Lin’s passion, dedication, style and uncompromising dedication to quality. In a candid interview Mr. Lin explained why he chose Enagic technology and Kangen Water to be used in all the restaurants of his hotel.
“I was introduced to Kangen Water by a friend of mine in Singapore. I started drinking Kangen Water and came to realize its various benefits. In order to serve healthy, clean and tasty dishes, we decided to install the Enagic technology in all the restaurants of the hotel. Almost everyone drinks water in some way during meals, including in soup and tea. I did consider several water ionizer brands, but the Enagic technology came out on top because it solved all the concerns we had for cooking, including making sure the device had necessary testing and certifications to be used in a commercial kitchen. The device also had to be able to take the rigorous and demanding use by our kitchen staff, something that the Enagic technology was more than equipped to handle. Although it took using the technology and trying Kangen Water to convince the staff of the benefits  of the water, they recognized the need for the water and have embraced the use of the device. Now they take advantage of the Enagic technology and Kangen Water in all aspects of cooking, including washing fresh fruits and vegetables, making tea and soup and chemical free cleaning of the kitchen.”

Tajimaya Honkan, the Shabu-Shabu restaurant in the hotel, is so popular that there is a three-month waiting list to get a reservation. Patrons enjoy a variety of delicious dishes which have used Kangen Water during preparation and as an ingredient. At the end of meal they add Kangen Water to the soup and make porridge out of it. Then the staff explains to the customers why they use Kangen Water for cooking. Mr. Lin explained, “Once you buy a good product and master its use, you will be able to share the value and benefits with others. I am sure that less than 1% of people in Taiwan have ever heard about the Enagic technology and Kangen Water. We hope to help inform them of the advantages of the water by allowing our patrons to experience the unique difference this water can make.” He added, “I consider myself a forward thinking person and I think this technology will become an important part of every commercial and consumer kitchen. From now on, food will need to be more than just delicious; it will also need to benefit  your health in as many ways as possible. I believe that this is the beginning of a trend in health and cuisine which will eventually dominate the culinary world.”

Top 7 Credit Card For Those With Good Credit

If you have good credit then you obviously know how to manage your money. Ideally a credit card should be used for investing rather than consuming, but you already know that.
A credit card can be an advantage when making a quick turnover deal, that way you can use the banks money for very little cost and the money is always available especially if your credit rating is excellent. Anyway I thought this was a good article for anyone that is not happy with the credit card that they have.

Top 7 Credit Card Offers For Those With Excellent Credit
by Tasha Lockyer November 6, 2013

Do you have excellent credit? If so, banks are actively looking to win you as a new credit card customer by offering some unprecedented deals. Although banks have been more careful about acquiring customers with questionable credit since the 2008 Financial Crisis, they are now fighting harder than ever to win coveted customers with great credit. If you are in the excellent credit sweet spot, they are effectively giving you money (and a lot of it) to use their credit cards. These are the top 7 deals you can take advantage of today:

Citi Simplicity® Card: Shopping for a special item for yourself or someone else? This card will let you make big purchases then carry that balance into 2016 without paying a dime of interest. The Citi Simplicity Card features an incredibly lengthy 18-month 0% introductory APR for purchases and balance transfers. And there are no late fees, convenient if you sometimes forget to pay your bill on time, as well as no annual fee. The combination makes this card perfect for anyone looking to make a large purchase (or several purchases) or who is interested in transferring balances from other high-interest credit cards to this one. Either way it’s a smart choice.

Cash Preferred® Card from American Express: This is such a great cash back card that I have one. Cardholders earn 6% cash back at supermarkets (up to $6K in purchases), 3% on gas and at department stores and 1% on everything else. The 3% cash back at department stores is sure to come in handy this holiday season, as will the 6% at supermarkets if you’re hosting any holiday dinners or have guests visiting. Plus there is a $150 intro bonus that you’ll get after making $1,000 in purchases with your new Card in the first three months – that’s a 15% cash back bonus on the first $1,000 you spend! In addition you’ll enjoy a 0% 15-month intro APR on purchases and balance transfers. There is a $75 annual fee, but depending upon your spending patterns this card should easily pay for itself and then some.

Barclay Arrival Plus™ World Elite Mastercard®: Like to travel? This is the card for you. You’ll earn 2 miles per dollar for every purchase, and a bonus 40,000 miles – equal to $400 in travel – after spending $3,000 in the first 90 days of card membership. To use your miles, just book your travel and redeem your miles for a statement credit. You can make your travel arrangements however you’d like (by phone, online, using an agent, etc), fly any airline to any destination, and enjoy no blackout dates.

An added perk of this card is that if you use your miles to pay for travel you’ll receive 10% of those miles back. So redeeming 10,000 miles will actually earn you a 1,000 mile bonus that will be deposited into your awards bank! That means if you take the 40,000 bonus miles and redeem them for travel they’ll actually be worth 44,000 miles or $440. That’s a pretty nice bonus just for signing up and using the card. Plus there are no foreign transaction fees, so you’ll save money when you travel outside the US. There is a $89 annual fee, but it’s waived the first year. Overall this is a fabulous travel card and we highly recommend it.

Blue Cash Everyday Card from American Express: Need some extra cash? The Blue Cash Everyday Card from American Express (a NextAdvisor advertiser) is offering a great $100 bonus for a limited time. To get the bonus you only need to spend $1,000 in the first 3 months, which is pretty easy to do for most people. When you think about it, it’s a 10% cash back bonus on the first $1,000 you spend! Plus you’ll earn 3% cash back at supermarkets (on up to $6K in purchases each year), 2% cash back at gas stations and select department stores like Sears, J.C. Penny and Kohls, and 1% cash back on everything else. You’ll also enjoy 15 months of a 0% APR on both purchases and balance transfers, giving you a little bit of a cushion to help pay items off. And to top it all off there’s no annual fee and the cash back rewards never expire.

BankAmericard Cash RewardsTM Credit Card: If you’re in the market for a great cash back rewards cards that also has a 12-month 0% APR, this is a smart pick. Not only can you transfer over balances from your high-interest cards to the BankAmericard Cash Rewards card and pay zero interest for a full year, but you’ll get the same 0% intro APR on new card purchases. Plus you’ll earn 3% cash back on gas and 2% cash back on grocery stores (for the first $1,500 in combined grocery and gas purchases each quarter) and 1% cash back on everything else. And the cherry on top is you’ll earn an additional $100 cash back after spending $500 in the first 3 months. This card really does have it all – cash back, an extra cash back bonus, a length 0% intro APR on purchases and balance transfers AND no annual fee.

Slate® from Chase: This card was designed with credit card balance consolidation in mind. Its 15-month, 0% introductory APR on both balance transfers and purchases translates to interest-free payments until 2015. Plus, there are no balance transfer fees during the first 60 days of card membership. This is a big deal, as depending upon how much you plan to transfer, balance transfer fees can really add up. In fact, a $0 intro balance transfer fee can save you hundreds of dollars in fees, and the $0 annual fee is also a money-saver. So if you have excellent credit, you absolutely should not be paying any credit card interest. Get this card and transfer your balances.

Chase Sapphire Preferred®: This is a rewards cards with lots of flexibility. It starts off by earning you 2 points for each dollar spent on travel and dining out, and 1 point per dollar on all other purchases. That’s followed up by a 40,000 point bonus after spending $3,000 in the 3 months equal – equal to $500 in travel rewards. Redeeming your earned points via Chase’s Ultimate Rewards saves 20% off travel costs, enabling you to stretch 40,000 worth of points to $500 in travel. You can also redeem your points for cash back, gift cards and merchandise.

The best part is that you can transfer your points 1:1 to many frequent travel programs with no transfer fees, including United MileagePlus, SouthWest Rapid Rewards, Hyatt Gold Passport and Marriot Rewards. That means 1,000 points are equal to 1,000 partner miles/points, straightforward and simple. This feature is likely to appeal to road warriors who are members of various partner programs, as users aren’t limited to spending their points via Chase’s rewards program. There is a $95 annual fee, but it is waived the first year.
