These Street Vendors Engage In A Battle Of The Bods.

So a few months ago, I wrote a card about the McDonald's Goddess, a Taiwanese fast food cashier that took the Internet by storm for her good looks and adorable sing-songy voice. Today, it was brought to my attention that there's options out there for the ladies too - in the form of hunky street vendors.

Ladies, meet the guys serving up your streetside groceries with a little extra eye candy.

(Warning: There's no way to write this without sounding like an issue of TeenBeat magazine. Gentlemen, please divert your eyes.)
So the trend hit the Internet all thanks to Chen Yi-Tin, a Taiwanese part-time model turned street vendor that had his picture shared by women in Taipei after spotting him selling bean curd in a local market.
Since blowing up the Chinese blogging site Weibo last summer, Yi-Tin's career's been on serious lock, grabbing him plenty of Instagram followers and campaigns modeling anything from fitness clothes to underwear. (GET ITTTT.)
Not to be outdone, Malaysia soon called everyone's attention to their own male-model-slash-vendor Jordan Yeoh, who saw what Yi-Tin was going in Taiwan and thought, "Hey, why not go help my aunt and uncle with their durian stand?" And then, boom. Overnight Internet celebrity and fitness guru. Asia's social media game doesn't mess around.
If you don't know what it is, durian is a fruit that smells a whole lot like used diapers. So I guess if your durian shake can still bring the ladies to the yard even though you smell kind of like where Chiquita Banana would go to die, you must be really, really, ridiculously good-looking.
The vendor dude 'arms race' (pun intended) continued with Wang Xiang Hong, another Taipei native who's been pulling in droves of female consumers. As a busy college student, Xiang Hong never modeled professionally and was simply helping out a friend whose fruit stand was understaffed for a few months.
However, Xiang Hong did get to enjoy a brief modeling career before enlisting in the military shortly after.
Lastly, there's a Taiwanese cake shop employee simply known as "Cake Boy". (It sounds better in Taiwanese, I'm sure. Trust.) He first caught local attention after picking up part-time work at a streetside cake shop while attending college for sports, his specialty being volleyball.
He began to go viral on Weibo after women visiting the shop noted his good looks pose something of a striking resemblance to various Korean pop stars popular in the region. (I know we've got some K-Pop fans here on Vingle. Do you ladies agree?)

So what do you guys think of the hunky street vendor trend? Is it shameful vanity or smart business?

Oh my God. I need to aggressively search for the closest passport location like yesterday. I'm a whore for arms. If the dude has arms well then sign me the Effingham up! With that being said, Jordan Yeoh & Wang Xiang Hong can shut up and take my money everyday.
omgooossshhh I still can't get over this. why are they always whipping their faces with their shirts?!? to show off their abs!! that's why!!!
Smart business that needs to be adopted over here in the US, especially here inCali where it's so diverse in culture 😍
Why am I not in Taipei? Why was I unfortunate enough to be born in Texas? We don't have that down here....I want that down here...

In Taiwan, 'Plastic Bag' Is The New Black.
If you're reading this, chances are plastic bags have ruled everything around you in your lifetime. They're how you bring your groceries into your kitchen. They're what your mother put the PB&J in when packing your school lunch. And, if you're anything like me, a plastic bag is all that's handed back to you when you let your sister eat some of your gummy worms. I'm not bitter. I'm just saying. In Taiwan, however, plastic bags have undergone a recent repurpose. Long ago are the days of simply toting things around. The plastic bag is now the hottest fashion statement. That's right. The kids these days are wearing bags. Taiwanese teens have been taking to social media to show off their bold and unusual new looks, wearing nothing but a convenience store plastic bag. According to sources, 7-11 is among the most popularly worn, allegedly the most 'couture' of the country's bag options. The trend has been enjoyed by both men and women and is overall pretty simple. Just create holes for your legs, and stick your arm through the handles. I'd imagine you have to have a very specific torso length to make this one possible. Or else, you know.... INSTA-WEDGIE!!!!!!! Anyway, what do you guys think about this? Would you guys sport a plastic bag? Also, I am assuming no liability for whatever accidental wedgies you give yourselves when trying this one on in the privacy of your own homes. Or be like this girl, grab a supersized Target bag, and fashion yourself a nifty pair of shorts!
How To Make Mee Goreng Mamak (印度炒面), Fried Noodles with Indo-Malayan Flair
I love Indonesian food. Based on their history and interactions with the rest of Asia, the cuisine has subtle nods to Chinese, Thai, and Indian dishes, but with their own special (and usually nice and spicy) twist. Mee goreng is perhaps my favorite of the Indo-Malayan dishes. From the picture, it looks like a standard chow mein-esque stir fry, but the flavor involved is absolutely incredible and definitely sets it apart from its 'noodle cousins'. (Especially when you top it with fried onion pieces and just the right amount of sesame oil.) Mee goreng is such a popular dish that you can buy instant packages of it all over Asia. In fact, I have some friends who lived in Western Africa that enjoyed instant mee goreng as a steady staple through the week. (You can buy instant mee goreng at a majority of Asian supermarkets in America, but try this recipe for the real deal and super authentic stuff!) ------------------------------------------------------ Mee Goreng Mamak (Fried Noodles) 500 grams of yellow noodles Handfuls of beansprouts depend on liking 2 small tomatoes, quartered 2 small onions, chopped Handful of chicken breast meat, thinly sliced, or minced beef 2 eggs, lightly beaten 1 potato, boiled and cut into cubes 1 small size dry bean curd, cut into small pieces 3 tablespoons of cooking oil (I usually use soybean.) 1 tablespoons of minced green onion and garlic 2 fish cakes, sliced (optional) Handful of shrimp, de-shelled and de-veined, optional 1 green chili or Thai chili or red cut chili, optional 3 tablespoons of ketchup 3 tablespoons of chili sauce or chili paste 1 tablespoon of dark soy sauce 1 tablespoon of light soy sauce 1 teaspoon of garam masala/curry/turmeric powder, optional (but highly recommended!) For garnishing (optional): Some cucumber slices Some fresh coriander leaves or green onion Some lime or Calamansi lime (cut into half) Some deep fried shallots Some grounded peanut + sugar mixture Sesame oil 1. Assemble all the ingredients that need to chopped or sliced. In a big frying pan, sauté the onion and minced garlic until fragrant. Add in turmeric or Garam Masala (if preferred). Add the chicken breast/minced beef, stir fry for 1-2 minutes. Add the dry bean curd, fish cakes and potato cubes. 2. Add in the yellow noodles and stir fry until well mixed. If the yellow noodles is too dry, add about 1/4 cup of water. Add the tomatoes, prawns, tomato ketchup, chili sauce or paste, freshly cut green/red chili (if any). Stir fry until well combined (about 2-3 minutes). 3. Add in the beaten egg, sugar and salt to taste, followed by the beans sprout. Stir fry until the beaten eggs dries up. Off the heat and transfer to the serving plate. Top with sesame oil to taste.
Solo Traveling Doesn't Have to be Lonely: Taipei, Taiwan Trip
Last February, I embarked on my first ever solo travel adventure! I traveled to Taipei, the modern metropolis capital of Taiwan. Solo traveling to Taipei was the most nerve racking thing I've done in a while. But I was tired of waiting for friends who had different vacation days from me or just didn't have their finances in order *sigh*. I ordered my plane ticket, booked a hostel, and researched the heck out of touristy places to visit in Taipei. February 16th rolled around and I was off to my week long vacation into the unknown. I’m actually just being dramatic. It wasn’t really the unknown due to the fact of me taking hundreds of screenshots on how to exit the airport, where to buy my bus ticket, where to stand when waiting for the bus, and miscellaneous things to ease my nerves. Day 1: Super chill day. The cold I received from a friend the night before was starting to settle in so I wasn't feeling all that great. I made it to my hostel safe and sound, then went on a search for some Taiwanese noodles. Luckily my hostel was about a 15min walk from Lin Dong Fang Niu Rou Mian, a famous restaurant among locals and even members of BIGBANG have spoken about it. Unfortunately, it was closed due to Chinese New Year’s. So I continued walking the streets till I stumbled upon a local family run restaurant. I walked in, greeted the owners, pointed to a picture, and then waited for my order to be made. I don’t know the exact name of the dish I ordered other than a practical ‘beef noodles’. The dish was nice and cheap. A nice start to my trip in Taipei. I headed back to my hostel, unpacked, showered, and then knocked out for the evening. Day 2: First Friend I woke up with a terrible headache and ventured off for some Tylenol. I arrived at a 7-Eleven and came to find that medicine could only be bought at pharmacies. So I googled a pharmacy and dragged my feet there. The pharmacists were able to speak English and I was in and out within 2 minutes *hooray*. After taking a three hour nap, I awaited my Afternoon Tour of Jiufen Village & the Northeastern Coast. At preciously 1pm my tour guide arrived on a small but spacious shuttle bus. I entered the bus introduced myself to the crowd and noticed one other lone traveler. Yay! One other person that I can possibly befriend! We stuck together during the entire tour. Looking out for one another, trying new and interesting foods, and taking Instagram worthy photos. I ended the tour with a new friend who I met again two more times. Day 3: Action Packed Day No plans were set for the day so I got out of bed around 12pm. Before arriving in Taipei, a coworker suggested I download the app Couchsurfing. There is a feature that allows to create or enter hangouts with nearby people. All you have to do is make yourself available on the app, set your status to something you’d like to do and wait for others to join your Hangout. I created a hangout to ‘get some food’ and about an hour later I was on my way to eat dim sum with a new male friend named, Alex. Of course you should be cautious of stranger danger but don’t let that overshadow a chance to make new friends. Meet in a public setting and be aware of your surroundings. During my lunch meeting I had the chance to eat some of the cutest and tastiest buns I’ve ever seen or tasted. Alex and I didn’t have much in common but I do not regret meeting him. It took me out of my comfort zone and my hostel for a few hours lol. After my lunch hangout I headed to Taipei 101 formerly known as the world’s tallest structure. It was a bit foggy that afternoon so my pictures didn't turn out too great. Later that evening I met up with SP, the first friend I made and we decided to ‘hike’ Elephant Mountain around 7pm. Witnessing the breath taking night views from Elephant Mountain was definitely the highlight of my Taipei trip. The ‘hike’ took about 20 minutes and there were about three different peeks to stop at. If you ever visit Taipei I highly suggest visiting Elephant Mountain for the sunrise or evening views. The best part is that it’s free! If you've made it this far I want to say thank you. Give yourself a high-five. This post has become longer than expected and a part 2 detailing my last four days may be posted at another time. I would like to end by saying, if you want to travel take the plunge and do it! There are plenty of other solo travelers looking to make friends as well. Don’t ever think for a second that you are in this alone. Explore, make friends, eat well, take pics, and enjoy the moment. YOLO, right? Tell me you experiences while solo traveling? What did you do? Where did you go? Who did you see? I'd like to know. If you're an English Teacher in Korea then you probably recognize that song reference.
É possível ganhar dinheiro no iFood?
Recebemos todos os dias essa mesma pergunta de muitos donos de restaurantes:é possível ganhar dinheiro noiFood? https://www.ciinformatica.com.br/ganhar-dinheiro-ifood O ideal é que o restaurante esteja presente em mais de uma plataforma de pedidos online ou market place, e possa adotar estratégias de negócio a fim de colher o melhor que cada uma delas tem a oferecer. Por exemplo, o iFood, que é o maior market place de delivery da América Latina, acaba sendo fundamental para visibilidade de marca para o restaurante e aumento de tráfego de pessoas e fluxo de pedidos. O preço disso? Altas taxas e percentual sobre vendas. Por outro lado, se o restaurante possui uma segunda solução de aplicativo de delivery, como o Vina, ele pode criar incentivos e ações para migrar e fidelizar os clientes que ele conquista via iFood para um aplicativo de delivery próprio que seja menos custoso para ele. Com o Vina, o restaurante paga apenas R$ 1 por pedido, sem percentual sobre vendas. Dessa forma, as plataformas de delivery acabam sendo complementares para o aumento de vendas e da rentabilidade do restaurante, e, recebendo pedidos via iFood ou Vina, o ideal é que o restaurante possua um sistema de gestão que possa integrar as duas plataformas e enviar os pedidos recebidos automaticamente para os pontos de produção, otimizando tempo, equipe e evitando erros manuais. Osistema para restaurantesControle Na Mão faz a integração tanto com iFood, quanto com o Vina.

Funky Taiwanese Food: Would You Try Them?
You guys know that I've been watching Moon River. I came across a scene yesterday where they filmed at the popular Taiwanese Night Market and thought about delicious food I can only eat in Taiwan. The following might look and sound gross but it's actually VERY delicious. Coffin Bread (棺材板; Guan Cai Ban) This is like the American version of chowder in bread. This is a popular street food in Tainan, south of Taiwan. The name was inspired by the coffin-like toast cutoff and the lid. You can pretty much put anything inside the bread but the classic recipe uses a seafood chowder. Stinky Tofu (臭豆腐 ; chou dou fu) It smells pungent but it's only momentary. Once you take a bite, you wouldn't notice the aroma anymore. Although, some people who are not used to fermented food might this unbearable. It's not that bad! 1,000 Year Old Egg (皮蛋; pidan) It's not really a thousand year old. The more standard term for this food is century egg. It is made with duck egg preserved in clay with seasonings. It usually takes about two weeks of process to achieve the translucent black jelly and creamy yolk. In taiwan, it can be eaten alone, with soy sauce and tofu, or diced in porridge. @biancadanica98 @AimeeH @petname83 @Aripendragon @VeronicaArtino @AlyssaGelet818 @EmilyPeacock @BluBear07 @JamiMilsap @PrettieeEmm @merryjayne13 @larosamong @lovetop @KpopGaby @pharmgirlerin @lcr4562 @SaraHanna @TaraJenner @Starbell808 @LocoForJiyong @VKookie47 @CandaceJordan @punkpandabear @JessicaJudy @P1B2Bear @MyAffairWith @ChosenKnight @JacksonWangxme @Kpopfangirl15 @luna1171 @deefran @sherrysahar @IMNII1 @yaya12
