Burger King Japan lets you quintuple the bacon on your burger
News On Japan via Time -- Apr 19
Burger King's Japan restaurants recently introduced the option of super-sizing just the bacon portion of their famed Whoppers, according to a post on Gawker. For around 100 yen (which is about $1.25) customers can get an extra 15 strips of bacon on their burger. That's 500% more bacon.
Ms. Suu Kyi's decision to travel overseas is especially important because it shows she is growing more confident about the economic and political reforms in Myanmar over the past year. Before that, Ms. Suu Kyi refused to leave Myanmar because she feared the country's military leaders wouldn't let her return home. She famously declined to leave in 1999 when her husband was dying of cancer of in London.
Myanmar's moves to release political prisoners and to allow Ms. Suu Kyi to run for political office, among other steps, appear to have persuaded her that it is safe to exit the country without being blocked upon re-entry.
