Bundaberg Lemon Lime Bitters Are Refreshing

Bundaberg Lemon Lime Bitters

Bundaberg Lemon Lime Bitters is sure a lovely drink, it has the sourness of the lemon lime and with pinches of bitterness, which in my opinion is good to have. It’s like beer, except it’s not as bitter. Perfect companion for Euro 2008, especially for those who prefer non-alcoholic drink.

You can get them from Cold Storage. Retails at RM 4.80+/-.

Coffee May Protect Women

Good news for female coffee drinkers!

Drinking large amounts of coffee, even up to six cups a day doesn’t increase the risk of an early death, instead it appears to protect women from fatal heart attacks and stroke, new study suggests.

Harvard School of Public Health researchers looked at coffee drinking and the risk of dying from heart disease, cancer or any other cause. They found that people who drank more coffee were less likely to die during 18 years of follow-up in men, and 24 years of follow-up in women.

Women who drank two to five cups of coffee a day were up to 26 per cent less likely to die than abstainers mainly because of a lower risk of death from heart disease. While, women who drank two to three cups of caffeinated coffee daily were 25 per cent less likely to die from cardiovascular disease than “non-consumers.”

Those who drank more four to five daily cups of coffee saw their odds fare even better, to 34 per cent reduced risk.

Researchers found similar patterns for men, but the numbers didn’t reach statistical significance, meaning they may be due to chance.

T-Mobile Sues Starbucks Over AT&T Free Wi-Fi

Less than a week after Starbucks kicked off its free Wi-Fi, Starbucks now finds itself facing the prospect of legal action for allegedly breaking a service transfer agreement it had in place with T-Mobile USA.

Filed late last week in a New York state court, the lawsuit claims that Starbucks has violated a transitional partnership contract agreed with T-Mobile back in February. Deutsche Telekom-owned T-Mobile USA is seeking unspecified damages on the grounds of breach of contract and unfair competition.

Sundrop Milk Coffee (Kopi Susu)

Sundrop Kopi Susu or Milk Coffee is something new in the market and is made in Kuching, Sarawak. The coffee has got a strong coffee flavor despite being a milk coffee. However, I still prefer Suntory Boss Coffee.
