Breast Cancer: A-Z Mindful Practices will uplift, inspire and encourage you as you navigate this new chapter in your life, living with breast cancer. The days get long and the decisions are endless. The wait is often terrifying and certainly frustrating. Your attention span is short and your time is invaded with doctor’s appointments, lab tests, and possible surgeries. Astonishingly, you seem to be the only one with a sense of urgency. All the while discovering the “unique” ways your family and friends show their support. It is an exercise in grace to say the least. So here is a book, a small and simple gift written with your struggles in mind. It starts with Abundance and ends with Zest, and all of the words in-between. It is our hope these words through the alphabet will help you focus, make decisions, and encourage you to put one foot in front of the other. Sometimes it is the simplest of inspirations that keep our head above water. Additionally, there are short reflections written to direct your attention and thoughts into a positive space when negative emotions abound. Each word, crafted with the idea that you need a lifesaver, becomes a buoy, something to hold on to when the shoreline has drifted away.

It is an irresistible combination of fluffy hot-from-the-steamer rice drizzled with gulai ayam and served with easy-to-eat pieces of juicy fried turmeric chicken and burn-your-tongue-off sambal belacan that draws people to Warung Cikgu in Puchong.
Started in May 2005, the eatery was set up by Kelantan native Ariff Suqimi and managing the two outlets is Ariff’s primary school friend and fellow Kelantanese, Nik Mohd Faiz, 28.
The name of the place pays tribute to Ariff’s father who is popularly known as Cikgu Karim, a nod to his profession. This January, they expanded and opened another outlet in USJ1’s Regalia Business Centre.
What they serve here is nasi Mmanggey which is actually different from the other Kelantanese favourite nasi Kak Wok. Confused because both dishes look identical? Can’t say we blame you as they are both feature fried chicken.
Nik Mohd Faiz tells us there are slight differences between the two rice dishes that trace their origins back to Kelantan. He adds, “The concept is the same but the taste is different.”
For nasi Mmanggey, the fried chicken is marinated with turmeric powder, chilli powder and salt while the nasi Kak Wok chicken uses a marinade made from fresh turmeric. In terms of spice levels for the sambal belacan accompanying the rice, Nik Mohd Faiz explains to us that they increased the spiciness.
In Kelantan, nasi Mmanggey (RM5.50) is usually eaten for breakfast and lunch. At Warung Cikgu, you get to satisfy your cravings for the rice dish throughout the day.
Accompany your meal with their kelapa baldi (RM4.20) or fresh coconut water served in a small bucket. Nik Mohd Faiz tells us the coconuts are sourced from Bagan Datoh in Perak.
You also have Shake!Gu (RM3.70), their version of coconut shake with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. The word gu is Kelantanese slang for buddy.If you’re early, look for their breakfast items which are available till 10am. A must-try is the nasi lemak biasa (RM2.70). Simple but satisfying; the fluffy rice is delicious when paired with the fragrant, not too spicy sambal and crunchy deep fried ikan bilis. [...]
One of the key things pointed out on Dr. Oz was the link between estrogen and breast cancer, and how estrogen (and certain foods) can fuel breast disease. Turmeric helps decrease estrogen. As little as one teaspoon a day has been shown to reduce tumor growth. [...]
