Good news! Drinking coffee is very unlikely to cause cancer, according to the five-point system created by University of New South Wales Professor Bernard Stewart, devised by an Australian cancer specialist
He also listed using mobile phones or having breast implants is unlikely to cause cancer to debunk popular myths.
The cancer risk assessment reaffirms smoking, alcohol and exposure to sunlight as leading risk factors, but allays concerns about coffee, mobile phones, deodorants, breast implants and water with added fluoride.

Pokka has come up with a new drink — Vanilla. Initially, this drink may taste like those Vanilla Ice-Blended, however, despite the fact this is a coffee drink, the taste of Vanilla is way too strong that it covers up the entire milk coffee flavor. Personally, I rather go for their normal Milk Coffee than this.

Religious police in Saudi Arabia arrest a 37-year-old American businesswoman and married mother of three for sitting with a man in Starbucks. This show how a rare first-hand glimpse of the discrimination faced by women living in Saudi Arabia.
Yara, who does not want her last name published for fear of retribution, was bruised and crying when she was freed from a day in prison after she was strip-searched, threatened and forced to sign false confessions by the Kingdom’s “Mutaween” police.

Continue from my previous Coffee Bean Lychee Ice-Blended Promo post, I have the opportunity to try Lychee Ice-Blended over the weekend. Yes, it tastes good. And yes, it tastes like lychee with the exception of additional whipped cream flavor (if you opt for whipped cream). Other than that, an icy cold lychee drink from any of those canned drinks would save you having to pay RM 10.00 (or RM 12.00 if you are not using Coffee Bean Card).
Coffee Bean Lychee Ice-Blended
Seriously, save that ten bucks. Get Mocha Mudslide Ice-Blended instead.
