This is the Right and Easy Way to Peel a Banana

A banana is a herbaceous perennial that is not only popular but is also very nutritious. It is actually the 4th largest fruit crop of the world and it grows in tropical countries as it needs about 10 – 15 months of frost-free conditions to produce a flower stalk.

The banana is also an affordable source of nutrition for the price of $ 0.58 dollars average in the U.S. for every pound. Bananas are also good sources of several vitamins and minerals that are essential to the human body’s many functions.

Aside from its health benefits, the banana is also an important ingredient to many recipes. Depending on its variety, the banana can be added to cakes, breads, pastries, drinks and even meal recipes. It is actually an essential ingredient in most breads, pies and cooked meals. (Think banana bread or banana guacamole.)

However, the main reason the banana is overly popular is because it is convenient to eat as a snack. We just need to peel its skin (no need for a knife to do that), and we can instantly enjoy this healthy snack.

Unfortunately, most people do not know the right way to peel a banana. What most people do is peel it from the stem. The traditional way we do it actually go against the grain of the fruit causing its strings to remain.

Interestingly, monkeys know better and we should take our cue from them. The right way to peel a banana is to position the stem end away from you, pinch the end facing you and start peeling. Not only is it the right way, you will also find it easier to do!

The origin of the name of the fruit

According to About.com, bananas were brought by Portuguese sailors from West Africa to Europe in the early 15th century. Banema, its Guinean (West African) name became banana in English and was first found in books in the seventeenth century.

We often see children playing on streets, unattended by their parents. We tend to consider them homeless as they spend the whole day asking for food from passersby. Considering that they aren’t home and not with their parents means they are not properly taken care of. And it sometimes breaks our heart knowing that innocent young kids experience such.

Parenting is a big responsibility. With the growing population in our country, a man opens an awareness and hits us with reality about having so many kids.

Shaun Manzo

Shaun Manzo, the policeman who shares his experience on how he bumped into a playful kid who stays often in the busy streets of Boni, Mandaluyong. He started his post with a disclaimer, not to brag but to just open awareness to parents to refrain from having kids more than they can take care of. Mazo said that every child deserves to be loved and be taken care of.

Diego

According to Shaun, his heart breaks for the kid who he always sees roaming around his assignment area in Boni Mandaluyong. He usually spots the kid wearing no clothes and slippers. Shaun often sees the kid roaming around McDo near Boni MRT. One time, he asked the kid which food he wants to eat in McDonald’s. The kid then points his fingers at a toy. Right there and then, Mazo ordered a happy meal for the kid.

The kid, a little bit shy, gave thanks to the generous policeman. Mazo felt teary-eyed and filled with joy at that time. He also shared that customers in McDonald’s oftentimes give extra food to Diego. The 3-year old young kid gives happiness to those people around the area.

Mazo found out that Diego lives around Boni area and they are 9 kids in the family. He gave a pet name to the kid by calling him “Diego” (pertaining to a character in Dora the Explorer). Being far away from family, he found a friend in Diego. The kid sometimes calls him “Papa.” According to Shaun, the kid reminds him of his nephew whom he misses already. Diego, despite not given with proper needs from parents, stays cheerful and smart.

When it is scorching hot, it is good to drink a freshly blended fruit shake or eat ice cream. McDonald’s ice cream is delicious and perfect for a hot afternoon. However, a mobile phone footage of a customer shouting and hurling at an employee of McDonald’s has recently gone viral on Facebook — simply because of McDonald’s ice cream.

Asked to Pay

A raging man was scolding a staff at the Dessert Kiosk in Housing Mall Singapore. The incident happened last week, at around 3 to 4 PM, as the man who can be seen dressed in a black shirt, has been shouting at the employees at the cashier. The man flew into a rage after one of the McDonald’s staffs asked him for payment before he finished ordering his dessert, an ice cream cone which costs RM2.97 ($1).

While the employees can be seen and heard trying to calm the man down, he continuously screamed at them. At one point, he even hurled vulgarities at them.

He still continued to shout at him “What service is this? You tell me! Is McDonald’s service like this?

Only After His Money?

Although the staff already apologized to him, he still continued shouting at the employees, saying that they are only after his money.

You don’t tell me sorry because I’m very angry. What! I haven’t order finish. Money, money, money. What is this?

One of the employees tried to calm him down and told him that since her colleague was talking to another customer, it was a form of miscommunication. However, the man didn’t accept the explanation and pointed out that there was no other customer other than a woman and a little girl who were with him.

Other staff tried to explain the situation but he continued cursing at the employee. [Image Credit: SINK - Singapore Ink / Facebook]

He also refused to step out of the store and want to see the action that would be taken against the employee. He also demanded to see and talk to a higher authority, rather than the store manager.

His female companion also tried to smooth things over by recounting the events to the employee. However, the man was not finished and still continued. He took some of his money and slammed them on the counter.

What? My face, I got no money to pay for this ice cream? Money? I got no money to pay the ice cream? F****

The employee tried to pacify the customer and tried to tell him that everything is just a misunderstanding and the restaurant manager would call him later. However, he still continued cursing the staff.

Misunderstanding? Or you all see that I got no money to pay the f**** ice cream?

According to others, it’s a matter of misunderstanding. [Image Credit: SINK - Singapore Ink / Facebook]
