HEALTH BENEFITS OF COCONUT WATER
Here are some of the benefits of coconut water which explain why it has become so popular.


REDUCES HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE
Coconut water is high in potassium and some studies have
reported that low level of potassium has been linked to high
blood pressure. Therefore, drinking coconut water regularly
can help in regulating blood pressure. Similar recent studies
also have found that coconut water can help raise HDL (
good) cholesterol, which makes it an excellent natural
treatment for maintaining good cardiovascular health.

STRENGTHENS THE IMMUNE SYSTEM
The Lauric acid in coconut water has antibacterial, antifungal,
antimicrobial and antiprotozoal properties, which help
strengthen the bodys immune system against a variety of
viruses and illnesses.

KEEPS THE BODY HYDRATED
Since coconut water is packed with all five electrolytes, the
body has, including potassium, magnesium, chloride, calcium
and sodium. Altogether, it plays an important role to keep the
body hydrated during physical activities. It is reported that
United Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) have
fought for a patent in 2000 to promote coconut water as the
next big sports drink.

AIDS IN DIGESTION AND METABOLISM
Coconut water contains various bioactive enzymes such as
acid phosphatise, catalase and RNA polymerases which help
to overcome problem in digestion and metabolism. Drinking
coconut water on a regular basis has been shown to be
effective in dealing with abdominal discomfort.

When Andrew Yap and Jacqueline Ng started the Big Bad Wolf sale back
in 2009, they did not expect it to be one of the biggest book events in Southeast
Asia. The million-dollar, round-the-clock sale with books going for as cheap as
RM3 has become one of the most crowd-drawing events in Malaysia, beating
the likes of MATTA Fair, PC Fair, Homedec, and any other type of warehouse
sales, according to Yap.
Starting out BookExcess back in 2006, the husband and wife team has
always kept to the companys objective : to give. Seeing that only 2 percent
of the Malaysian population are book readers, they started sourcing for
affordable but quality books to cultivate a reading habit among Malaysians.
Ng recalls having their first Big Bad Wolf sale in DataranHamodal. It
was their first time organising a sale and they had no idea how the response
would be.I hired 50 staff to handle the sale and only two of them were readers.
We had two events that year, in May and in November. In May 2009, we had
120,000 books and back then we had no experience. I had to wait for each pellet
(carrying box) to arrive and it took ages. We had customers waiting and
following the trolleys for the books.
It was a positive response, despite being their first time organising such
an event. At the end of the sale, the part-timers who didnt read became avid
readers because they saw how crazy the crowd was over. Ng received an email
from a lady who brought her brother to the sale and it had converted him!
The brother was just there to carry books and he wasnt into reading. His sister
told him to just pick any two books and she would pay for them. After that, he
became an avid reader.
Last year there were 3 million books for sale during Big Bad Wolf and it
was a non-stop shopping event for customers, some coming from as far as
Thailand, Singapore and East Malaysia. The Big Bad Wolf is such a hit among
bookworms that some people even take annual leave just to buy books!
Previously, I had an express lane to reduce the long queues but I found out that
there was hardly anyone who bought less than five books. They usually carry
boxes and trolleys of books whenever we have the Big Bad Wolf sale, says
Ng. Yap mentions that to go is 5am when there is a lull. Youd be surprised to
find that the peak hours are from 2am to 3am!
Ever wondered how the name Big Bad Wolf came about? Ng says Yap
proposed the idea one day when they were planning to have a book sale.
Everyone objected to it, saying it had a negative impression because the Big
Bad Wolf is the villain in the fairy tale, Little Red Riding Hood. Somehow or
rather, Yap made up his mind and despite objections, the name stuck. When the
graphic designer came up with the logo, Ng and the rest of the staff liked it.
The Big Bad Wolf name is cheeky and catchy. We even have a storyline
for our fans on Facebook. Every year the Big Bad Wolf sale has a theme.
Previous themes include a spaceship and superheroes. There was one year
where we changed our Facebook cover photo to look like a newspaper called
The Daily Howl. It was part of the storyline we created to make it engaging

and fun for our fans. This year, its all about pirates. The storyline involves 3
million books being stolen by pirates and the Big Bad Wolf has to sail the seven
seas to find them! By creating this event, we encourage people to come even
though they are not readers. Our mission is to increase readership in Malaysia
and so far, were very happy with the response. The biggest challenge we face
is cost, says Ng.
Every year, Yap and Ng outdo themselves, adding more books to the already
staggering amount of books they have. But handling 3 million books is no
ordinary feat and Ng thinks it would be too saturated if there are more books
this year.
