Smile Cool! Looking forward to it!

It seems like Mr. Sato is being PR for Mao, and fielding a lot of the questions for her Smile
I like this. This way, Mao gets at least a tiny bit of break form the japanese media frenzy and their constant mention of triple axels.

Actually, I read in the twitter that it will be Kumiko Sensei accompany Mao to Canada. I think it was like what Yuka Sato pointed out that Mao's team is trying all their best to present the positive packaging for Mao!
I love this! Love Hearts  This could trully be her season. I haven't seen her this motivated in a long time. Go Mao!

Mao celebrates the 10th anniversary of "Hana-Celeb", singing a song. (cute Love Hearts )
She pledges her undying love for Hana (Nose) in wedding dress.
Some special events will take place in coming months.
Hana-celeb is a box of tissue? It looks very posh geek

Yes, it's so soft & tender and contains some moisture.  You won't get a red nose even if you blow your nose with it 100 times a day. Hell, no!

Thank you:flowers: How does Ghana chocolate compare to Meiji chocolate? I could only find Meiji choc in my area so I choose the black one. Not bad and it really kept me awake.

This might be a stupid question, but is there some special ingredient that Japanese chocolate producers put in to their chocolates? It's the first time, that I hear chocolate has kept someone awake. Embarassed

Eh? I think chocolates have caffeine and dark/bitter chocolates have more. I usually have coffee or other drinks w/ caffeine or chocolates when I need to work long hours. Milk chocolates should have lesser content, though.

I have already been following you on twitter for a while now Like a Star @ heaven 

and I know what you mean about being united, my favorited tweets are basically one big collection of nice things that have been said about Mao, so that when people start tweeting hate or unfair things, I go back and read them all and feel a little better again Embarassed Wub

I never bothered to look at the ingredients. However, chocolate has never worked for me in keeping me awake, this is why I was surprised that it works for some. To stay awake I need lots of caffeine. Then I drink coffe like it's water, not the best idea, but it works.

The cocoa powder used to produce chocolate does contain coffeine, but the amount is extremely small. Depending on the degree of fermentation and the type of cocoa beans, the caffeine content will vary from 0.1-0.5%. Smile

That said, sometimes I also have coffee with a bit of chocolate (or chocolate bars) if I need to force myself to stay awake. It's quickly digestible and provides glucose to the brain to trick it into believing it's no longer hungry and has a lot of energy. :lol2:Of course, after the "sugar rush" comes "sugar crash", so this tricking the brain only works for a short time. It's usually enough to finish a report or clean the apartment, though. Laugh

Good quality dark chocolate is also one of the foods that have the highest magnesium content. A deficiency in magnesium can lead to sleepiness, anxiety disorders, migraines and other unplesant side-effects. The only snacks that are higher in magnesium (per 100g) that I can remember off the top of my head is raw spinach and pumpkin seeds. :)So a bit of chocolate is actually good for you, as long as you remember to brush teeth afterwards. Smile

...AKA things I didn't expect to ever discuss on a figure skating forum. lol!

I used to depend on coffee to keep me awake, but then I became immune to it, and too much coffee made me feel tired, so I have to turn to dark chocolate. It seems like the Japanese consumers don't like dark chocolate. Meiji only has what they call black chocolate, and the cocoa content is just around 30%. It's more like milk chocolate.

Lol, I was dubbed "queen of topic change" by a fellow Mao fan on our Fb group:oops: Embarassed . Thanks for the info btw. Now I get why I always feel sleepy even when I sleep 8 hours a day.

Ahh, that's probably why tennis players often eat banana, to prevent leg cramps.
