A friend tagged me a photo (on Facebook) of his homemade healthy sandwiches made from our Low GI bread recently bought at our Batu Bersurat branch. A “simple yet delightful sandwich” indeed. Our Low GI bread now comes in loafs which is available at both Batu Bersurat as well as JPMC branch.
Brunei’s Health Promotion Centre, under the Ministry of Health, has officially launched the “Healthy Restaurant” program last weekend with the aim of encouraging restaurants and eateries around Brunei to come up with more healthy options in their menu. The launch was officiated by the Deputy Permanent Secretary of MoH, Dr Hjh Rahmah Hj Md Said, and attended by several Heads of Department including Dr Awang Zainal Ariffin bin Haji Awang Yahya, General Director, Ministry of Health.
So far, 3 restaurants have been selected to participate on this pilot program and it is an honor that Mr Baker’s Cafeteria is one of the chosen ones. To be eligible, certain criteria must be fulfilled including the screening of food recipes and ingredients used in our products. When asked by Dr Hjh Rahmah what are the popular dishes in our menu, I explained that we only serve healthy sandwiches, muffins and salads. Our sandwiches are so easy to prepare that our customers can actually make them at home, saving the hassle of eating out. Dr Hjh Rahmah, a bread lover, asked for my recommendation and without any doubt, I recommended Jan Shim‘s most favorite bread, the Muesli bread. Both Dr Hjh Rahmah and Dr Awg Zainal Ariffin sampled the muesli bread and they are impressed.
Every beginning of the year, I would look back and ask myself what I had achieved in the past 12 months. Year 2013 had been a great year for Mr Baker as a whole. We developed specialty muffins under Muffins&Co., collaborating with Brunei’s Health Promotion Centre on their healthy restaurant program and months of products development with an international franchise establishment landed us a deal which is going to keep our production line busy for a good period of time. However, my greatest moment in 2013 is none other than reaching the summit of Mount Kinabalu on 18th December 2013.
I started training for #MountKK2013 in August last year after the month of Ramadhan. Most of my training was at Bukit Shahbandar. The first attempt was a nightmare as I could barely catch my breath right after the first concrete steps. If you are a regular of Shahbandar, you would know exactly which concrete steps I am referring to. It was then I realized that I had to work harder in order to reach the summit as I know there isn’t going to be any easy way. I was pretty much determined (and disciplined) that I literally set a 90-day #MountKK Challenge on my personal Facebook account and monitored the progress on daily basis.

I recently fall in love with the smoked beef sandwich which we called “Healthy Beef Roll”. Customers may request for the type of bread to be used for their healthy rolls such as wholemeal, low gi, multigrain, focassia rosemary and rye bread etc. My favorite bread has to be the Honey Almond roll which is my usual post workout meal.
