"Big Apple - Donuts and Coffee" already opened few months in Kuching, but never bought the donuts before because didn't feel like it. And today, my boyfriend buy it for me. tastes good, not bad.....but the donut's bread is not so solid. So, 4 stars for it (max: 5 stars).

The picture below shows the donuts he has chosen for me. The one with green topping is Green Teaser. Then for the bottom part (left to right) is Whitnut, Mango Tango, Ice Berg. I don't know the name for the two with jam topped in the centre, but i know one is topped with strawberry jam and another is topped with blueberry jam.

The filling for the Whitnut is peanut jam, a bit salty, but still sweet. And filling for the Ice Berg is only cream/icing....errmmm...something like that. :)

Importance of Having Breakfast

Breakfast can help prevent strokes, heart, and sudden death. ADVICE ON NOT TO SKIP BREAKFAST!

Healthy Living

For those who always skip breakfast, you should stop that habit now! You have heard many times that "Breakfast is the most important meal of 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 6:00am and noon, with the highest incidence being between 8:00am and 10:00am. What mechanism within the body could account for this significant jump in sudden death in early morning hours?


Platelet, tiny elements in the blood that keep us from bleeding to death if we get cut, can clump together inside our arteries due to cholesterol or laque build up 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, 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 perhapts head off a potential Heart attack of stroke. So never ever skip breakfast!
