Honey and Cinnamon Magic!

Saw this on FB and I think this article is awesome!

Drug companies won't like this one getting around. Facts on Honey and Cinnamon: It is found that a mix of honey and Cinnamon cures most diseases. Honey is produced in most of the countries of the world. Scientists of today also note honey as very effective medicine for all kinds of diseases. Honey can be used without side effects which is also a plus.Today's science says that even though honey is sweet, when it is taken in the right dosage as a medicine, it does not harm even diabetic patients. Researched by western scientists:

HEART DISEASES: Make a paste of honey and cinnamon powder, put it on toast instead of jelly and jam and eat it regularly for breakfast. It reduces the cholesterol and could potentially save one from heart attack. Also, even if you have already had an attack studies show you could be kept miles away from the next attack. Regular use of cinnamon honey strengthens the heart beat. In America and Canada, various nursing homes have treated patients successfully and have found that as one ages the arteries and veins lose their flexibility and get clogged; honey and cinnamon revitalize the arteries and the veins.

ARTHRITIS: Arthritis patients can benefit by taking one cup of hot water with two tablespoons of honey and one small teaspoon of cinnamon powder. When taken daily even chronic arthritis can be cured. In a recent research conducted at the Copenhagen University, it was found that when the doctors treated their patients with a mixture of one tablespoon Honey and half teaspoon Cinnamon powder before breakfast, they found that within a week (out of the 200 people so treated) practically 73 patients were totally relieved of pain -- and within a month, most all the patients who could not walk or move around because of arthritis now started walking without pain.

BLADDER INFECTIONS: Take two tablespoons of cinnamon powder and one teaspoon of honey in a glass of lukewarm water and drink it. It destroys the germs in the bladder....who knew?

CHOLESTEROL: Two tablespoons of honey and three teaspoons of Cinnamon Powder mixed in 16 ounces of tea water given to a cholesterol patient was found to reduce the level of cholesterol in the blood by 10 percent within two hours. As mentioned for arthritic patients, when taken three times a day, any chronic cholesterol-could be cured. According to information received in the said Journal, pure honey taken with food daily relieves complaints of cholesterol.

COLDS: Those suffering from common or severe colds should take one tablespoon lukewarm honey with 1/4 spoon cinnamon powder daily for three days. This process will cure most chronic cough, cold, and, clear the sinuses, and it's delicious too!

UPSET STOMACH: Honey taken with cinnamon powder cures stomach ache and also is said to clear stomach ulcers from its root. GAS: According to the studies done in India and Japan, it is revealed that when Honey is taken with cinnamon powder the stomach is relieved of gas.

IMMUNE SYSTEM: Daily use of honey and cinnamon powder strengthens the immune system and protects the body from bacterial and viral attacks. Scientists have found that honey has various vitamins and iron in large amounts. Constant use of Honey strengthens the white blood corpuscles (where DNA is contained) to fight bacterial and viral diseases.

INDIGESTION: Cinnamon powder sprinkled on two tablespoons of honey taken before food is eaten relieves acidity and digests the heaviest of meals

INFLUENZA: A scientist in Spain has proved that honey contains a natural 'Ingredient' which kills the influenza germs and saves the patient from flu.

LONGEVITY: Tea made with honey and cinnamon powder, when taken regularly, arrests the ravages of old age. Use four teaspoons of honey, one teaspoon of cinnamon powder, and three cups of boiling water to make a tea. Drink 1/4 cup, three to four times a day. It keeps the skin fresh and soft and arrests old age. Life spans increase and even a 100 year old will start performing the chores of a 20-year-old.

FATIGUE: Recent studies have shown that the sugar content of honey is more helpful rather than being detrimental to the strength of the body. Senior citizens who take honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts are more alert and flexible. Dr. Milton, who has done research, says that a half tablespoon of honey taken in a glass of water and sprinkled with cinnamon powder, even when the vitality of the body starts to decrease, when taken daily after brushing and in the afternoon at about 3:00 P.M., the vitality of the body increases within a week.

Dubai Attractions

Visiting Dubai?

Dubai is home to many first. Yes, they like it BIG (sense some kiasu-ness) here! They have the world tallest tower and the largest man-made island and not forgetting they even have 7 star hotel - the Burj Al Arab when the max is only 5 star. Gotta love the spirit!

My friends keep asking me where to go and what to do when they are here in Dubai. So I figured I would just write a blog about it once and for all.

7. Madinat Souk Jumeirah

Visit Souk Madinat Jumeirah for an experience that will surprise and delight every time. Wander through the traditional Arabian souk, past wind towers, lantern lit hallways and narrow waterways to discover the treasures hidden within. With specially selected shops, restaurants and bars to entertain throughout the day and into the night, enjoy unlimited amusement at Souk Madinat Jumeirah, the gem of Dubai.

The World’s Most Expensive Cupcake

Saw this on an email, thought I would just share!! :)

Would you pay for this???

(Image credit: Bloomsbury''s)
Behold “The Golden Phoenix.” Hailed as the world’s most expensive cupcake, the pricey dessert costs a whopping £645 ($1,000) at Dubai’s Bloomsbury’s Cupcakes.
Served on a covered Villari 24-carat gold empire cake stand, the cupcake is adorned with edible gold and chocolate. It was unveiled at the opening of the new Bloomsbury’s location in the Dubai Mall.
A YouTube video offers a behind-the-scenes look at the making of “The Golden Phoenix.” The chocolate cupcake is baked with premium Amedei Porcelana chocolate and premium Ugandan vanilla beans and covered in 23-carat edible gold sheets. The cake is frosted with chocolate icing and dusted with edible gold dust. It’s then garnished with chocolate decor that’s dusted in more gold dust. Organic chocolate-covered strawberries and a golden spoon complete the dish.
In June, Bloomsbury cupcake founder Shafeena Yusuff Ali announced she wanted to create the pricey dessert. It took her five weeks to develop the dish.
Twitter backlash ensued after unveiling the dish. Negative tweets like “it’s not impressive. Sorry, but this is how I feel. And well caviar isn’t 1 of the ingredients” and “I would just think that this money could be used for a better cause than obesity. But this is purely my belief,” were some of the responses.
Ali tweeted her response “sorry you feel that way! I was making an honest effort to create something amazing!”
