Help! Noodles!

It's late! I'm hungry!

How do I cook this!!!!!?????

I can only read the red parts. There are six parts to this thing and "around 4 times as much", "around 2-3 times as much", and "300c.c." isn't enough help!

I'm such a struggler. Outsmarted by Japanese instant noodles! :(

AFF Suzuki Cup Final 2010

The AFF Suzuki Cup 2010 final was contested this week between Malaysia and Indonesia. This is the championship of ASEAN(The Association of Southeast Asian Nations) contested every years. Malaysia had beaten defending champions Vietnam 2-0 in one semifinal while Indonesia defeated The Phillipines by a similar 2-0 score in the other semifinal.

This is an emerging soccer region and while the quality of the football is quite poor (Indonesia and Malaysia are ranked 127 and 144 respectively in the FIFA rankings), tournaments like these make more teams stronger for Asian Championships and World Cup qualifying. Thailand, the leading power in this region, was the sole power for the longest time but now are consistantly knocked off by the other countries in the region. Didn't even make the semis this year after the drew against Laos. LAOS!!!!!

Here are the highlights. There were huge crowds! 90000 in Kuala Lumpur and 100000 in Jakarta!

1st Leg: Kuala Lumpur

2nd leg: Jakarta

December 9th, at the Hepingli No. 1 Primary School in Dongcheng district of Beijing, during a sexual health education class, the teacher uses a game to teach students how a "sperm" and "ovum" unite after going through multiple obstacles, and even allows them to experience the hardships of a mother's ten month pregnancy.

December 9th, at the Hepingli No. 1 Primary School in Dongcheng district of Beijing, students pretend to be "sperm" during a game.

Chinese Homework Assignment!

Source: funny-city

So in school there's an assignment to teach kids about 1870s America. This particular one is about Chinese railway workers and what they would write in a letter back home.

So the student answered appropriately I think!

My living conditions here are poor.
The working environments here aren't great either, and there is very little welfare.
But don't worry, every day there are only about 10 people who get into serious injuries, and I'm very careful.
We opened a little shop, the business isn't very popular.
Even though my english isn't very good, I can still kind of understand the white people.
I hope I can succeed. I will be working really hard here, and watching my health.
Are you guys well?
I miss you guys, hope we can see can see each other again.

A Famous Philippines Victory

The Philippines aren't really a sporting nation. Other than Manny Pacquiao, there's not much to cheer around in the international sports scene.

Ranked 151st in the FIFA Rankings and barely qualfying for the 8-team AFF Suzuki Cup SE Asian football tournament, they pulled off the shock of all shocks. Beating host and defending champions Vietnam in Hanoi!

Q & A with Korea Expert David Kang

With all the recent international attention on North Korea, there have been a lot of questions about the future of the Korean peninsula. Some of the coverage has been pretty sensational, with some even referring to the recent attack on Yeonpyeong island as "World War III." That's getting a little carried away!

In light of all the crazy speculation and uncertainty in the air, KoreAm recently posted a great Q & A piece with Korea expert David Kang, director of USC's Korean Studies Institute, who took submitted reader questions and answered them in a concise, reader-friendly manner. It really does clear up the situation. So have a read and don't panic!
