"KDDI Corp., in cooperation with Okinawa Cellular Telephone Co., will release Japan's first solar-powered mobile phone as early as June, the companies said.The waterproof phone, created by Sharp Corp., can be charged through a solar panel installed on the surface of the phone. About 10 minutes of sun will power the phone for about a minute of talk time and roughly two hours of stand-by time."

Cairns Trip - Day 2
The food? no.. I didn't have Japanese food this time, instead I got Italian food for lunch, start with Lobster bisque and caesar salad for appetizer and then sirloin steak and spaghetti marinara to satisfy my seafood passion. My spaghetti marinara comes with prawn, oyster, squid, and fish fillet.
Easter is just around the corner!
As I live in a western country, Easter means Easter show, chocolate Easter bunnies, chocolate Easter eggs and cross buns. Even there are no parties like Christmas season but at least some offices provide some chocolate eggs and cross buns for the staffs to enjoy the Easter spirit.
Talking about cross bun, it's sweet bun made with raisins (originally) and has a cross marked on the top. The tradition of eating hot cross buns on Easter came from England when English monarchs saw the buns as a dangerous hold-over of Catholic belief in England, being baked from the dough used in making the communion wafer. Protestant England attempted to ban the sale of the buns by bakers but they were too popular, and instead Queen Elizabeth I passed a law permitting bakeries to sell them, but only at Easter and Christmas.
Now some bakeries sell not only raisins cross buns but also some different flavor such as chocolate cross buns with some chocolate chips as topping which is my favorite one.
Well,.. Happy Easter everyone.. enjoy your long weekend.
