The world would be a better place ...

... if there were more restaurants like these.

Van Gogh is Bipolar is a cafe ... yes, a place you eat food at ... in the Philippines. Aside from its unusual name, its appeal is that it offers food that is supposed to improve your mood.


The cafe only serves all-natural 'happy-hormone-producing' foods, set to lift customers' moods. Its menu is loaded with foods that are believed to help balance the brain's levels of serotonin and dopamine, which in turn helps alleviate mild to moderate depression.

Don't believe 'em? Here's a link to their menu, complete with descriptions of how the ingredients are supposed to relieve anxiety, release dopamine or beat depression.


Doesn't that look good? Eat yourself happy the next time you're visiting the Philippines!

Sushi lovers will want this

"Hey Kim, what time is it?"

"Oh, it's half-past salmon."



I guess you couldn't really say that unless you had one of these ... a sushi clock.(FYI: The sushi isn't real; it's art, people!)

What a great way to add color to your kitchen ... and it's not a bad conversation starter, either. If it weren't for its price tag — $312 US dollars — I'd get one.

Of course, if the idea of raw fish makes you a little queasy, this might not be the timepiece you want to rely on.


To purchase one, visit Japan Trend Shop. (Side note: The battery is included but the manual is in Japanese. Oops).
