    Because they are still alive!!

    No, it's just because katsuobushi bonito flakes are very thin and usually served on top of food that has just been cooked so the steam makes them move. They are sometimes referred to as dancing fish flakes in Japan due to the movements that they make.

    Best dish for katsuobushi is definitely takoyaki, followed closely by okonomiyaki!

    Bonito flakes are kept as dry as possible not to loose its flavor till it is served.

    When it is put on the top of a dish particularly on a hot steaming dish, it begins to absorb moisture quickly and curl or shrink giving the impression as if it move on its own.

    Does it hurt to get them on? just the pressure no pain How long is the process of getting braces?mine took about 20 mins including the cleaning What will it feel like afterwards? afterwards it will feel like a mouthful but you get used to it in a week and a half :] And when does the braces move your teeth? as soon as u feel your teeth hurting. after getting braces on u wont be able to have any solid food or it will hurt very bad. just have some scrambled egg, jelly, ice cream, custard etc. it takes a maximum of 2 weeks to officialy stop hurting but a few teeth still might hurt. congratz and it's all worth it in the end. Perfect smile

    Possibly because they are very light in weight and you are blowing on them or there is a breeze in your home.
