BaconFest 2017

2017培根美食節

Do you love bacon? Americans sure do. There is a common saying in America that if you want to make any dish taste better, just add bacon to it. In fact, Americans love these strips of fried Nov 2017 Elem Newsletter 1pork so much that they have many festivals dedicated to it.

你喜歡培根嗎?美國人確實很愛。在美國有句俗話說,假如你想要讓餐點嚐起來更美味,只要加培根就好了。事實上,美國人很喜歡這些油煎豬肉條,還因此設立許多培根慶典。

One of the biggest, the Pennsylvania BaconFest, will take place on November 4 and 5 in Easton, Pennsylvania. The event features 100+ vendors selling bacon in all forms imaginable. You can expect to see the usual classics, such as bacon and eggs, bacon burgers, and bacon sandwiches. But what’s more surprising are items such as bacon jam, bacon cupcakes, and even chocolate-covered bacon. But vegetarians don’t need to give this festival a miss; they also sell fresh, local fruits, vegetables, and freshly baked breads.

Nov 2017 Elem Newsletter 1-02其中最大的一場就是「賓州培根美食節」,會在十一月四日及五日在賓州的伊斯頓舉行。這場活動有超過上百個攤位以各種可想像的方式賣培根食品。你可以看到常見的經典,像培根煎蛋、培根漢堡,以及培根三明治。但還有更令人驚奇的,像是培根果醬、培根杯子蛋糕,甚至是巧克力培根等等。但吃素的人不需要躲避;慶典中還會兜售新鮮的當地蔬果,及剛出爐的麵包。

Besides all the food, people can also enjoy live music, pig races, costume contests, and other activities. For the kids, there is a giant air-filled pig to jump on. Last but not least, you can have your photo taken with a giant bacon mascot!

除了食物外,現場還有音樂、賽豬活動、扮裝比賽以及其他活動可參加。對孩童來說,還有隻充氣的大豬可以讓他們跳上去。最後但也很重要的是,你可以和巨大的培根吉祥物一起拍照!

音樂聖船:音樂體驗出港

All over the world, the music festival phenomenon continues to increase in popularity. Thousands of young adults gather in forests, on deserts, on beaches, and so on to dance, listen to music, and camp for days. But now there’s a totally new kind of music festival and it’s called Nov 2017 Newsletter Adv 1“It’s the Ship.”

在全世界各地,音樂祭現象持續發燒。數千名年輕人在森林、在沙漠、在海灘等處聽著音樂露營多天。但現在有一種全新型態的音樂祭,叫做It’s the Ship

As the name implies, this event takes place on a ship. But this is no ordinary cruise; it is a full-on electronic music festival at sea. For three nights and four days straight, house and dance music DJs keep the ship alive with music. Passengers can dance under the stars on the ship’s enormous top deck, or in the rave rooms within the ship’s interior.

Besides raving, passengers can enjoy relaxing spas, sports facilities, waterslides, zip lining over the sea, bowling, ice-skating, gambling, or dining at one of the 35 restaurants or bars. Over 70% of the luxury cabins have private balconies facing the sea, in case people decide to take a rest from the entertainment facilities during their trip.

So how much would a ticket set you back? The cheapestcabins cost around USD1000 per person, and that doesn’t include alcoholic beverages and some of the facilities onboard. This year’s “It’s the Ship” disembarksfrom the Marina Bay Cruise Center in Singapore, traveling to Phuket in Thailand and back, and goes from November 17-20. Have a safe and enjoyable journey!

那麼,一張船票會花多少錢呢?最便宜的客艙每人大約1000美金,還不包括酒品及船上某些設施。今年的音樂聖船在新加坡濱海灣遊輪中心啟航,一路到泰國普吉島再回航,時間從11月17日至20日。祝你有段安全又開心的海上之旅!
