STORYLINE:

A Vietnamese bubble artist, who holds multiple records, succeeded in both breaking and creating a new record Tuesday in New York City.

Previously, Fan Yang claimed 12 other Guinness World Records for various bubble stunts.

This attempt, his 13th, created a bubble with 13 chambers and large enough to hold 34 people inside, the only known record attempt for a bubble so large and one holding so many people.

Guinness allowed Yang one trial run and three attempts for his record.

Yang broke and created the record on his second attempt.

"I did on the second because the second attempt the bubble last longer. From my side I saw that the entire system was intact, so there was no where gap. So the second attempt is the official record. Yeah, and this will be sent into the Guinness World Record for approval," said Yang.

The bubble when completed had a total surface are of 1,076 feet, to obtain those dimensions Yang had to come up with a special ratio of soap to water.

"I actually have twelve different kinds of bubble mixture to create bubble tricks and elements. They are based by their viscosity and density. Some of them are more elastic, some of them are more light, so depends on what I'm doing," said Yang.

Yang's attempt was captured on video tape and watched by Guinness World Record observers.

It becomes official once proof of the attempt is sent to Guinness World Record staff for approval.

STORYLINE:

Gathered around a huge structure covered in brightly coloured paper and tinsel on Saturday night, crowds of eager residents of a town just north of Mexico City celebrated what organisers claim is the world's largest pinata.

"From end to end it measures 21 metres," explained Maria Eugenia Dominguez, a member of the local government.

Mexican pinatas are made of paper and cardboard and are usually stuffed with sweets and other goodies that party-goers scramble for after they break the colourful container.

Dominguez said Cuautitlan is where the idea of making the world's largest pinata was born, but unfortunately officials couldn't register it in the Guinness Book of World's Records because they didn't know that they needed to alert the publisher six months ahead of time.

The festival, called "Viva Diciembre en Cuautitlan", had more than just the giant pinata to offer.

Residents snapped pictures of a full nativity scene before walking into artisans' tents with food and crafts.

Families and young couples enjoyed the cool night air and festive atmosphere, complete with Mexican Salsa and Banda music.

Some said that the festival, free of images of Santa Claus and other foreign symbols, was a way of preserving Mexican tradition.

LEAD IN:

There are all sorts of odd categories in the Guinness Book of Records. And this week, the organisers added another.

The residents of Chongqing, which lies 1600 kilometres (994 miles) inland from Shanghai on China's Yangtze River, tucked into a huge banquet of intestines, bowels, and some vegetables, all fried in spicy oil laced with chillies.

Now this city hopes to lay claim to the record for holding the largest Hot Pot Party in the World.

STORYLINE:

Tradition deems that in China commercial celebrations - be they shop openings or a trade fair - are heralded by troupes of brightly dressed, middle aged, female percussionists.

And in Chongqing this week, the din was near deafening.

This is because the city held the world's largest Chongqing Hot Pot party - a street "food orgy" - where the dishes of delight included all kinds of innards, boiled in a mouth-numbing spicy peppered soup.

In Chongqing, the local dish is believed to render medicinal qualities

He Yongzh, President Chongqing Hot Pot Association, says that the spicy Hot Pot is said to have a lot in common with the temperament of the local people.

She says the city wants the whole world to learn about their favourite dish.

Chongqing Hot Pot can include lotus root, seaweed, bean sprouts, strips of beef, chicken feet, ox bowels and an array of intestinal tracts.

These are cooked in a spicy soup - and the Chongqing folk lap it up.

This is more than eating - this is a lifestyle choice and social activity.

Behind the scenes, chefs prepare trays of ingredients for the crowds.

This is clearly not for the squeamish.

But the guts and bowels provide the foundations for a substantial industry.

Greater Chongqing - which covers a land mass equivalent to Austria with a population of 32 million.

Qin Wenwu, Director, Chongqing Municipality Commercial Committee says the area has 50,000 Hot Pot restaurants which employ over 400,000 people.

Chongqing Hot Pot is often described as this city's calling card - you should never leave here without one .

This evening, however, is more than a feast - it's an official Guinness World Record attempt - albeit the first attempt in the new category of "largest Hot Pot party in the world".

The judges deemed that at least 2,000 should be actively participating in the banquet at one time and that a minimum of 250 Hot Pots should be bubbling away.

Of the tens of thousands who gathered, the official count is 13,612 eating together around 2,249 Hot Pots.

They spread along two kilometres (1.2 miles) of street and sidewalk - spending over US$ 400,000 as they munched their way through 30 tonnes of tripe and hopefully into the history books.

++++PLEASE NOTE : at time of publication no official confirmation has been released that this attempt has got into the Guinness World Records.

STORYLINE

A team of Russian ice cream aficionados built what is believed to be the world''s longest ice cream at the Moscow Exhibition Centre on Saturday.

At 240 metres (787 feet) long it was a tempting sight for many of the children who were eventually rewarded for their patience with free ice cream handouts.

An official from the Russian Guinness Book of Records confirmed it set a new Russian record and said he hoped London would except it as a world record too.

The bar was laid out along the parapet of the once record-holding fountain known to every Russian as the Fountain of the Peoples'' Friendship where 15 gilded statues of girls in national costumes symbolised the eternal friendship of the 15 Soviet republics.

For the occasion, the water was switched off and impatient audience waited for the main event - the creation of a sweet record.

Russians are famous for their love of ice-cream and are quite content to eat the chilly confectionary in freezing temperatures.

How much are you prepared to pay for the perfect steak ?

The average steak dinner and bottle of house wine at one steakhouse in Tokyo could set you back as much as $500 US Dollars.

STORYLINE:

A beefsteak restaurant in Tokyo was chosen as the world's most expensive restaurant this year, for the second year in a row.

The list was compiled by Forbes.com in association with Zagat restaurant guides.

The Zagat data excluded restaurants in the United States.

Aragawa is a little steak house which serves Sanda beef, a type of Kobe beef, which can only be found in Hyogo Prefecture, Western Japan.

Unlike other three-stars restaurants, Aragawa is located on the basement of the building along with a pasta place and a sushi restaurant, which has a much more modest menu where people can eat for less than 1,000 yen (about 8 U.S. dollars).

Food lovers say that Aragawa is a hidden gem.

There are only small signs the restaurant outside of the building, and the entrance looks just like the one of the members club.

A dish of beef steak starts at 50,000 yen (416 US dollars) but it is rather big portion for one Japanese person, usually two persons share one-pound of a beefsteak platter.

Together with hors d'oeuvre and wine, the average cost per person would be about 60,000 to 70,000 yen (500-583 US dollars).

Depending on the label of wine, it could go up to 100,000 to 150,000 yen per person (833-1,250 US dollars).

Aragawa's beefsteak is sourced from only one local farm in Sanda city in Hyogo Prefecture, western Japan.

The steak is cooked in a fireplace by using rare brand charcoal called Binchotan, which is hard to find due to excessive logging.

The steak is simply seasoned with salt and pepper.

Rather than the usual three ways of cooking steak -- rare, medium, and well-done, the chef will cook it in one of ten different ways of grilling depending on how the client want it cooked.

Masahiro Yamamoto, is a restaurant analyst and regular diner here.

He says the chef's attention to detail and the quality of the beef means says the high bill is worth every cent.

Akira Kazama started the restaurant 40 years ago in Tokyo's Shimbashi district.

Kazama inspired by his brother-in-law's Steak Restaurant in Kobe, decided to learn how to cook and opened his restaurant in Tokyo.

He has remain loyal to the family style of steak that he first tasted as a teenager in Kobe and he only serves sirloin and fillet steak from a 30 to 36-months pedigree black angus, Sanda cow.

There are nearly 100 brands of beef in the Japanese market such as Kobe beef, Matsuzaka beef, and many others.

However Sanda beef is one of the rare kind which is only allowed to breed with other Sanda cows living in Hyogo Prefecture.

There are about 10,000 Sanda cow in Japan, which are hand-reared and not sent to the slaughterhouse until they are three years old.

Kazma says the care taken to rear the cows justifies the price of his steak dinners.

STORYLINE:

The world's biggest bottle of wine, at two metres (six-foot-five-inches) tall and weighing 590 kilogrammes (1,300 pounds), stopped traffic on New York's Wall Street on Thursday.

The wine arrived from Australia for a quick date with American connoisseurs, with its 3,500 US dollar cork firmly tapping the equivalent of 387 regular bottles of Shiraz.

As snow descended on Wall Street at lunchtime, traffic stopped while a forklift hoisted the mammoth box in which the well-padded bottle was shipped.

A dozen men pushed and pulled the prized package through the brass doors of the Cipriani Wall Street ballroom.

The bottle was the centrepiece of a show featuring all things Australian, both culinary and cultural - part of a nationwide marketing effort dubbed "G'day USA: Australian Week".

But when the bottle got stuck in the doorway, the visitors inside didn't seem too upset with the delay as they sampled other wines and liqueurs on show.

The saga of the giant bottle of wine, owned by Kim Bullock, a wine store owner and wine bottle creator from Albany in Australia, reaches across three continents.

Bullock commissioned the bottle to be made in Germany, along with the cork, which was cut and hand carved from a tree in Portugal.

He then joined forces with five fine wine makers in Australia's Great Southern region who mixed their best types of Shiraz grapes into a single 2005 vintage called "Five Virtues".

"It's from the Great Southern of Western Australia," Bullock explained.

"As the creator of the bottle, it's my right to christen it and I have christened it 'The Albany.' It's the regional centre in which I live in Western Australia," he continued.

In addition to the nearly 290 litres of wine the bottle holds, Bullock and his buddies produced 12-thousand other, normal-size bottles of their blend.

The Albany beats what was previously the world's largest wine bottle, a four-and-a-half-foot-tall Beringer Vineyards 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon from California, auctioned by Sotheby's in 2004 to a New Jersey buyer for 55,812 US dollars. Dubbed the Maximus, it holds 175 regular bottles of wine.

THE SCREAM

A brave audience kept their distance on Saturday, as a group of ear-splitting contestants attempted to break the Guinness World Record for the loudest scream.

Eleven competitors qualified for the final from a field of over 1,500 entrants in the competition, held in Pattaya, Thailand.

Russian man Sergey Savelyev came out on top with a loudest scream of 116.8 decibels, well short of the world record of 129 decibels set by Britain's Jill Drake in London in 2000 but the loudest in this competition.

Savelyev, who collected a winner's cheque for 30-thousand baht (882 US dollars), vowed to return next year and eclipse Drake's ear-piercing yell.

STORYLINE

People in the city of Lima received a big treat on Thursday as bakers and candy confectioners created the largest "turron" in Peru's history.

The traditional candy, which is popular in the month of October, is made from a sesame biscuit and honey base and is considered to be a popular treat in the Catholic faith.

The record-breaking turron was 50 metres (164 feet) long and weighed nearly 1500 kilograms (3,307 pounds).

"Turron is something delicious. You cannot compare it to any other treat in the world," said Lima resident Matias Valverde as he eagerly awaited a taste.

In order to create the giant candy bar, bakers used more than 240 boxes of butter, 600 kilograms (1,320 pounds) of flour and 200 kilograms of sugar (440 pounds).

Lima Municipality Social Development director Edith Matias said the sweet treat was created to inspire the public's sweet tooth and to bring people close to Peruvian tradition.

"We want to position this (referring to the candy bar) inside our identity and culture because the turron is something Peruvian, it is something from Lima. It is something that is never lacking in Peruvian homes, especially in October," Matias said.

Parents and children in Lima lined up for hours to taste a piece of the enormous sweet.

STORYLINE

Masters of the 'Pishistyi' sushi bar celebrated Chinese Lunar New Year by preparing a giant sushi roll filled with numerous ordinary sized rolls on Monday.

It is estimated that the giant roll could feed around two hundred people.

Master Chan, head chef at the 'Pishistyi' sushi bar explained why they chose to make a giant sushi roll:

"We have information that another restaurant has also produced a record breaking piece of sushi which incorporates the logo of the restaurant. We decided not to repeat that but to make a giant sushi roll instead."

Chinese cookers spent almost a whole day preparing the roll, and special attention was paid to the cooking of the rice which was coloured yellow and blue to represent the national flag.

Igor Podchibyi, the representative of the Guinness Book of World Records in the Ukraine announced that the world record attempt had been a success, he said:

"It is the biggest roll to ever be made in our country."

''Its width is 19 centimetres, it's height - 16 centimetres. It's length - 93 centimetres and weight - 24 kilograms and 250 grams,'' Podchinyi added.
