When they a compelled by the weapons of war , injustice ,or disaster , it is the unacceptable truth that we lived in a world that suffering is inevitable .

Never Skip Breakfast.......

Breakfast can help prevent strokes, heart attack and sudden death. Advice not to skip breakfast! Healthy living For those who always skip breakfast, you should stop that habit now! You've heard many times that "Breakfast is the most important meal of the day." Now, recent research confirms that one of the worst practices you can develop may be avoiding breakfast.

Because the frequency of heart attack, sudden death, and stroke peaks between 6:00a.m. and noon, with the highest incidence being between 8: 00a.m. and 10:00a.m.What mechanism within the body could account for this significant jump in sudden death in the early morning hours? We may have an Answer. Platelet, tiny elements in the blood that keep us from bleeding to Death if we get a cut, can clump together inside our arteries due to cholesterol or laque buildup in the artery lining. It is in the morning hours that platelets become the most activated and tend to form these internal blood clots at the greatest frequency. However, eating even a very light breakfast prevents the morning platelet activation that is associated with heart attacks and strokes. Studies performed at Memorial University in St.Johns, Newfoundland found that eating a light, very low-fat breakfast was critical in modifying the morning platelet activation. Subjects in the study consumed either low-fat or fat-free yogurt, orange juice, fruit, and a source of protein coming from yogurt or fat-free milk. So if you skip breakfast, it's important that you change this practice immediately in light of this research. Develop a simple plan to eat cereal, such as oatmeal or Bran Flakes, along with six ounces of grape juice or orange juice, and perhaps a piece of fruit. This simple plan will keep your platelets from sticking together, keep blood clots from forming, and perhaps head off a potential Heart Attack or stroke. So never ever skip breakfast

Hope after reading this... You will not skip BREAK FAST !!!

Pinoy says Mabuhay !!

Pinoy is located at the burstling Padungan street familiar to many for its varsity of food , cafes and entertainment outlets ,smacked right in the middle ,2 blocks away from Padungan Police station ( you won't miss it). Its served great varieties of filipino food ranging from pork , beef ,chicken and fish ,cooked in different herbs and spices. I would say its fusion-mix food .

Kuching has quite a number of filipinas residing or working here ,therefore its would meets the needs of those who wishes for a taste of home . For the locals it would be a chance to savour a unique cuisine , if you are a little adventurers , it could proof very interesting and exotic for your taste buds .
(Stuffed-pork roll in herbs and spices with pineapple sauce)
Its not expensive and relatively not cheap either , for a taste of Manila ,i think its a fair price to pay . We paid less than RM100 for 4 Ala-carte dishes ......considers generally fair. Would i go back again ?!!!........errrr by accident , yes!!

A Day My Home On The Beach..........

Softly the ocean waves reach for the shoreline.

Dancing back and forth...As I think about the ocean, I feel a cool wind in my hair, and as a child running on the beach,
I begin to take flight, and sail through the sky looking down onto the ocean...
The waves crest, and relax...I fall tired as I think of these waves.Oh, the beach to be my home one day.
