This song is dedicated to those who declined and insisted they pay even though they are offered some goodies.
It is my way of showing my appreciation.

You reminded me of Billy Joel who sang Honesty
If you search for tenderness, it isn't hard to find. You can have the love you need to live.
But if you look for truthfulness, you might just as well be blind. It always seems to be so hard to give.
Honesty is such a lonely word, everyone is so untrue. Honesty is hardly ever heard ,and mostly what I need from you.
Enjoy and bottom up for honesty

A healthy article from yahoo on soda which include diet soda like coke which isnt a diet like suggested with aspartamate

Didnt realized that this thread is exceeding the 10,000 hits!
Thank you very much for sharing with the community and readers who enjoy healthy info. And if it gives a lively discussions or tasty comments, it is a bonus.
Let me stress again when I started this thread, it has not been my intention to seek publicity over my restaurant. It was spontenous and I even lodged in my real nick. No pretense, for real!
Forumers like Sentinel called me Van Gohr and dedicated Starry Starry Nite to imply here and even to his business associates that I dont care about selling my art of cuisines at the appropriate price. Maybe he is mad angry because as a fellow Nestle marketing team, I should be able to command marketing price.
But as I said, I do care! But the care is focused on changing the scope how food caterers should be more sensitive to consumers health and nutrition instead of making the expenses out of impairing our health or reducing the real nutrition with fresh food naturally by using MSG.
It is slowly changing even with Starbucks who have been selling healthy food in the recent marketing makeover. I would try to copy and paste the link later.
But lastly but not least, for those who share and encourage friends and family this healthy, yet tasty thread on usj.com.my , may God bless you and the force be with you
P.s. I did not know how significantly this was until a customer pointed out my thread has such a impressive hits over 5,000 5 months ago.
Now, I am choked with pride and honor which I started into restaurant more than a decade back coincidentally because of my elder brother who died of cancer at age 43.

Here is the link by USA Today over the Starbucks which is selling simple and pehaps more naturally. They are replacing for instance Campbell soup which have a long list of ingredients which included MSG and upgraded it with some thing that spell shorter and simple to understand. Therefore, easier to digest, for real!
Campbell. Campbell's most popular soup, Chicken Noodle, has a lengthy ingredient list with items such as monosodium glutamate (MSG) and sodium phosphates. But its Select Harvest line limits the number of ingredients — and spells out what each one is.
Campbell spoke with hundreds of Select Harvest's key customers — women over age 35 — and found "they want more transparency and simplicity in the foods they eat," says Sean Connolly, president at Campbell USA.
For example, maltodextrin is found in soups in both its Chunky and Select Harvest lines. For Select Harvest, Campbell provides a simple description of what it is: a carbohydrate from potato or corn starch. It provides no such explanation on Chunky soups.
Also, caramel color is used in some Campbell's soups but not in Select Harvest, because the line does not use artificial colorings.
And in banana bread, it used to have 15 ingredients. Guess what they did? They shortened the list by putting more bananas in it. They made it simple instead of using xyz ingredients to make it taste banana.
BTW, Starbuck is one of the most dynamic company listed on NYSE despite closing hundreds of stores amid the melt down last year. But they are responsive to the market trends and the recent quarter earnings are up 2 cents. So, the point is Starbuck betted right all these while since the inception and the new marketing strategy would be a new direction of growth. Move aside - Mac D
See, the world is changing to healthy trend of dining. Malaysia bolehkah?

Malaysia Health Minister announced that about 14 per 100,000 Malaysians get colon cancer every year. The more surprising news was the large racial disparity –
Chinese is about 29; Indians 10 and Malays 7 (per 100,000) in colon cancer.
Why Chinese seems to get colon cancer which is triple than the Indians or Malays? What seems to be the diet consists in Chinese breakfast, lunch and dinner ?
There must be some logical and pattern in which we eat, how we eat and what we eat and it is not that surprising with facts in statistic figures.

A relative who is an oncologist said - SALTED FISH ? - but the study done in Spore was for throat cancer on Spore and HK population. So IF logic reasoning prevails, from throat down to colon - same digestive system.

Chinese are sensitive to salted fish and they are very susceptible to getting Nasopharyngeal Cancer (NPC) which affects the ear-nose-throat area. It has something to do with the salt chemicals used in the preservation process. I doubt this has anything to do with colon cancers

Anybody out there ever had brinjal cooked in yellow lemak curry with a few pieces of salted fish in it? Mana bolih cari?

It is known from medical statistics that the Chinese has a higher risk for NPC and observations do link it with salted fish. The genetic makeup of the different ethnic groups are different ... we have to accept the fact that perhaps the Chinese have this deficiency. Don't take my word for it, I am not a medical man, get it from the docs and more so from the oncologists

Partly true, as the immunity of cancer cells differ in certain individuals. But different in races? I dont buy it.
Cancer is a mutation of cells, turning into bad celland spread to other cells.But what makes it turn bad? FOOD! More convenience of preparations and the stuff we put inside. Preservatives in canned and preserved foods and snack. All those xyz coded cartificial flavorings and etc..... And of course, personally I blame it on MSG which is IMHO.
In the olden days, we have less incidence of cardio vascular disease and cancer. In fact, it was termed of a richman's disease. RIchman savored loads of meat and veggies are food poor people.
And poor people get knock off by wars, infections, famines or simply old age instead.
When you have a plastic boobs, the chance of you having real breast cancer is stastically raised.
