Halloween (skrivet för MKFC-uppgift)

Jag har en känskla av att halloween har har minskat lite i popularitet. Fast visst försöker affärerna fortfarande sälja pumpor , spökdräkter och annat. Jag har egentligen aldrig firat halloween särsklit mycket. När jag var barn fanns det inte i Sverige och senare när det blev populärt blev det aldrig direkt av.

För några år sen var jag i Hong Kong just den helgen och när vi gick ut på kvällen i festkvarteren Lang Kwai Fong vimlade det av häxor, spöken , djävular och annat. Barer och diskotek i området hade också slagit på stort när det gällde halloween-pynt.

Kvällen efter hamnade jag av en slump på en liten kinesisk bar på 14de våningen i en av Hong Kongs skyskrapor. Här verkade alla känna alla och det var som att komma in på en privat fest. Det sjängs karaoke , någon var för full och sov i ett hörn och servitrisen drack upp mina öl och blev fullare och fullare. Kändes lite som någon sorts studentfest. Där blev jag påtvingad en häxhatt och en svart mantel. Folk protesterade högljutt när jag efter en stund försökte ta av häxhatten.

Fast en gång när jag var i tjugoårsåldern var jag bjuden på en halloween-fest. Då var firandet fortfarande inte särsklit stort i Sverige. Min kompis och jag klädde iallafall ut oss och festen var ganska kul trots att jag knappt kände någon. Minns inte vad jag var utklädd till men min kompis var liemannen och gjorde en lie av papp och en innebandyklubba. Hon blev väl lite onykter framåt kvällen och stack iväg till en närbelägen kyrkogård för att skrämma folk.

I Mexico firas sedan länge Dia de los Muertos - de dödas dag. Man äter godsaker i form av skelett och dödskallar och tänder ljus och har picknick på anhörigas gravar. Det är en ljus och fin fest och inte så ruskig som den låter. Man firar rejält. Det förekommer parader och att torg i städerna görs om för att likna kyrkogårdar där man kan festa. Jag var i Mexico januari till mars så jag har inte själv deltagit i firandet av Dia de los Muertos. Men det vore kul att göra någon gång.



Mexikansk dödskalle av socker

För den som är intresserad av att göra sina egna socker-dödskallar hittade jag det här receptet . Tyvärr på spanska men jag kan översätta om någon absolut vill , när jag är mindre trött än nu.


RECETA PARA PREPARAR CALAVERAS DE AZÚCAR

Ingredientes:

3/4 de kilo de azúcar blanca

Media cucharadita de crémor tártaro

1/4 de litro de agua

Moldes para mezclar los ingredientes

Para adornar

2 claras de huevo

azúcar glass

colores vegetales

Papel estaño de varios colores

Papel encerado para hacer dullas o cucuruchos para adornar

Moldes para hacer las calaveras

Preparación

Coloca en un traste el agua y el azúcar, moviendo hasta que el azúcar se disuelva. Dejar hervir de 12 a 15 minutos. Se retira del fuego y se bate hasta que cambie de color a blanco. Una los moldes de calavera con ligas y rellene los moldes por el orificio con la mezcla que preparó. Espere a que sienta los moldes tibios y el azúcar de dentro haya cuajado. Sumerja los moldes en agua fría y sáquelos enseguida. Quite las ligas y retire los moldes. Ponga las calaveras a escurrir y secar sobre una charola.

Para el decorado, se hacen las dullas con el papel encerado, como conos con la punta ligeramente abierta. Se baten las dos claras de huevo y se les agrega el azúcar glass y unas gotas de limón, hasta formar una pasta suave y uniforme. Esta mezcla se vierte en varios moldes pequeños. Para darles color se les agrega unas gotas de colorante vegetal del color que se desee. Llene una duya con cada color y adorne cada calavera con esta mezcla. También utilice para ello pequeños recortes de papel estaño. No olvide poner el nombre de la persona a quien quiera regalar la calavera en la frente de ésta.

Demand is strong and expected to increase over the coming year.
Interestingly, the rise in sales of smartphones will come at the expense of declining cell phone sales, currently 90% of the market. You may be able to find systems that are priced at a much lower level than that but you want to be careful of counterfeit systems that may not work as well as you would expect them to.

The different models of phones, while all capable of making calls, actually have very different features and capabilities for many
different uses. If you wish to answer a quick question, again,
use your Smartphone to go online and search for that quick answer.

The reason is - video-on-demand market is the only model that works on subscriptions.

Could it be that the big media companies want to keep the two seperate on purpose.
Key issues appear to be with wireless connection going in

On can buy these online as well as form the retail stores as well.
Its screen is also a little bit larger than the HTC One's (they're about equally sharp), it has a micro - SD slot for expandable memory,
and it'll be available on Verizon -- the HTC One will not. Leaving the Wi-Fi option turned on will very quickly drain the battery on the Galaxy S.
