Hi Gina,

You can buy the South African Clairol version of "Body on Tap" at:
the Vermont Country Store

You can also buy it here:
Beautynet

No, it's not in the original bottle. I could not find out anything about the original ingredients, nor do I know if the current product has the same ingredients. Below is a list of the ingredients in the current product.

I just posted some information about Body on Tap Shampoo - a picture 
of the original bottle and a label listing the ingredients.  I think 
one of your people was looking for this information.

Hi Alexandra,

I could not find Shogun's recipe, but I did find one recipe for this dish. See below.

Phaed

Karaage Fried Chicken

You need:
500gm to 1kg of chicken thigh (de-boned) (about 1/2 lb)
Two tbsp of soy
Two tbsp of ginger juice
One tbsp of sake rice wine
Corn starch 
Salt and pepper
Vegetable oil (for frying)
Lemon wedges
Japanese mayonnaise

Method:
Cut the chicken thighs into bite-sized pieces and set aside. Make the marinade 
by combining the soy, ginger-juice and sake and a large mixing bowl and add the 
chicken pieces, let this marinade for at least 30 minutes.

Once the chicken has marinaded, remove from the mix and coat with seasoned corn 
starch (corn starch which has salt and pepper mixed through it), I find that is 
you do this in a plastic bag, it is a lot easier to clean up.

Heat the oil in large pot or deep-fryer until it is ready to fry, then add the 
chicken pieces and cook until golden brown.

Serving Suggestion: Drain the chicken pieces until all excess oil is removed. 
Place on a large serving plate, with a side of Japanese mayonnaise and some 
lemon wedges, garnish with some spring onions. Serve, to applause and enjoy.

Hi Tammy,

Hello Diane,

Gosh, those antique doughnut machines are as rare as tennis shoes for chickens. The last one I saw sold for over $700 on E-Bay.

There are articles about these vintage donut machines here, and a recipe on the first one:

Mashing to the music, I can do anything
Freaky dicky star speckles and pink butterflies
and life is nice, so nice.

Like the record spins on the trails we blaze
The walls are closing in but thatís ok because Iíve been waiting all week 
to feel this way and it feels so good, so good. 
Iím on top of the world the coolest kid in the neighbourhood 
So let me be your star for one night thatís right.
Sweatbox, laser beams, flashing lights, youíve got to feel the rush, feel 
the spice of life. 
Love-life, Shifty rolls the dice snake eyes surprise. 
Iceing..Mesmorizing. the minds are sick ones Ďcause what we are, is victims 
of fun. 
Come on, come on, the fun is just begun; come on the fun is just begun. Ha Ha!!

Oh my starry eyed surprise, sundown to sunrise, dance all night, weíre gonna 
dance all night, dance all night to this DJ.
