Yes, coffee is good for your health

College certainly ruined my life for good. That’s when I started drinking lots of coffee. Cramming for exams, you know. It was a natural progression from there to my years as a newspaper reporter and a law student. It’s even worse working in a law office. There’ll always be deadlines to beat, which means many sleepless nights and more coffee, not to mention that cafes are a rage these days. Ah, all that talk about the bad things imbibing too much coffee does to you. And now, here comes this piece from the New York Times saying more or less that yes, coffee is in fact, good for your health. If that’s any consolation, consider too that spending too much time in your favorite cafe (or coffee shop, as it is called in Manila), can also be bad for your pockets!

  2. dr j,Manila’s “coffee shops” aren’t the same as the ones in Amsterdam — they’re absolutely harmless, except to your pockets, because coffee there is mighty expensive!!! Manila’s popular ones are made in America — Starbucks, Seattle’s Best, Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf — which can’t be found in all of Holland, except for one Starbucks shop at Schipol that was supposed to have opened already. No soft drugs, in other words, and some of them offer free wi-fi…how’s that for an answer? Possession of marijuana in Manila will get you a nice jail term 🙂
