The Internet is abuzz with Gundam news. The Gundam.info portal website announced within the week that there will be limited streaming of Gundam Wing: Endless Waltz (with both the English dub and English subtitles as per viewer preference). Gundam Wing: Endless Waltz is an OVA series, which debuted in 1997 as a sequel to the hit Mobile Suit Gundam Wing anime series. The three-episodic anime was later compiled into a single movie with additional footage.

Gundam Wing: Endless Waltz plays off after the Gundam Wing series in a time when peace has settled throughout the Earth Sphere and the colonies and the Gundam pilots are now in the process of rebuilding their lives. Having no need of weapons to defend themselves they have sent the Gundams to the sun to be destroyed. Then Relena Darlian, now a high-ranking official, is kidnapped by a colony with delusions of total dominance and the Gundam pilots find themselves called to action once more to save her and resolve the problems.

Serving Suggestion

Serving Suggestion

Hot Apple Tea

Tired of the boring supermarket teas and adventurous? Then we may have the answer for you. Here is a hot apple tea recipe that may make the Shinigami Ryuk (from Death Note) shiver with pleasure. It combines apple (of which one a day keeps the doctor away) with healthy Rooibos Tea. And it is yummy and that is yummy with cream and sprinkles on top! The ingredients for one serving is 1/4 medium apple, 1 bag rooibos tea, 1 cup apple juice, whipped cream (optional), cinnamon (optional) and sanding sugar (optional).

You wash, cut and then dice your one-quarter of an apple, Combine it then in a saucepan with the apple juice and bring it to a boil. Cook it for about 3 minutes or until your apples are tender then add the teabag and let it steep for three minutes to allow the aromas to blend nicely. Take the teabag out and pour the tea into your favourite mug. Since you are spoiling yourself, why not top it with cream and garnish it with powdered cinnamon and red sanding sugar. Better drink it while it is hot, that way you will catch the full effect of all the flavours and aromas too! Here is the tutorial video for the recipe!
