Annyeonghaseyo! I’m Horita from ASIACLICK.

Nowadays, there are many countries that Muslim accounts for 80% of their populations in Southeast Asia. Comparing population of Muslim with other religions, it is larger than others. That’s why Muslim becomes the topic of conversation as good target of business in Japan. So, we should attach grate importance to “Halal.”

Use Photos to Reach Out to Hong Kong Instragrammers

Along with growing mobile phone penetration, social networking services are beginning to rise in importance too. This article will look at the Instagram, a popular app among Hong Kongers.

Instagram started to gain popularity a few years ago. Most users of Facebook are likely to be found on Instagram too, as posting on Instagram would reflect on the users’ Facebook wall.


Hashtag reading #HongKongCulinary

What kind of posts are Hong Kongers posting on Instagram? One kind would be pictures of food.
Before digging into their meals, it is now part of popular culture for Hong Kongers to take photos of their food first.

I use Instagram too. As a user, to post on Instagram is similar to the idea of living a fulfiling life. When I eat out with my friends, everyone will be sure to take photos of all the dishes. Beyond food, we also post photos of friends, family, travel experiences etc.

Hashtag reading #HongKongPurchase

On the other hand, it is popular for Hong Kongers to shop on Instagram. Cosmetics from Japan and Korea, Western branded clothing, and snacks are just some examples that are available for purchase on Instagram.

Hong Kong celebrities and artistes also use Instagram. Not only does it allow them to be closer with their fans, they are able to release new infomation about their own works to their fans directly.

How do we let others find our own posts? That is through Instagram’s hashtags. Whatever posts you upload, be sure to use hashtags to allow others to discovery your post. Using hashtags well will become promotion for your shop or yourself.

For all the reasons above, why not give Instagram a try? It is easy to upload your photo posts, and allows you to connect with your friends and other users around the world.

Philiippine’s Meryenda is the Fourth Meal of the Day

Meryenda, and the light meals

Hello! This time I will talk about the Filipino popular tradition: Meryenda.

Meryenda, or “snacks” in English, is a light meal eaten after lunch and befire dinner, usually around 4pm. It is customary for us not only to satisfy our hungry bellies, but also cultivate this long-standing tradition that our ancestors have started decades ago. Since it is a very quick and light meal, it usually only takes 15-20 minutes for it. Filipinos, from every Philippine island and from all levels in the society, practice having meryenda in the afternoon, every single day.

This tradition was inherited from the Spanish colonization, including the type of food. The most common examples of this would be the local rice cakes, instant noodles and sandwiches. These food can be found almost anywhere, and you can eat them quickly. This is where Filipinos get their energy boost, especially when they still have a long day ahead of them. Otherwise, they would be even more tired, as hunger burdens their normal work.

However, not only working people practise this. It is observed by all Filipinos, whether if they are at home or outside. Even when they are relaxing, they still see to it that they take their meryenda. Also, this is practised outside the Philippines. Surely there are other countries who have meryenda too, even if they do not have a particular term for it. The term meryenda is uniquely Filippino, and that’s what makes it interesting than just normal snacks.
