Coffee in a coffee cup

I dont know how it all got started. My dad does not consume hot beverages and my mom is a tea lover. So how on earth I got hooked on to coffee? For as long as I can remember, I love coffee. I used to take one each morning for breakfast and another right after lunch and another after dinner if I had dinner late.

Some friends say they cant sleep at night well if they drank some coffee later in the day but for me, sometimes I really need a sip of two of this pleasure at night (especially after dinner!) should I wish to complete a great day! I can still do without it but sipping hot coffee makes me feel good and as though life is such pleasure .... No I am not addicted to it, but I just love to enjoy it.

Ice-blended coffee were made popular by Starbucks & Coffee Bean in Malaysia and even till today, people hang out at these outlets just to show off their latest gadgets (laptops, mobile phones, PDAs, etc) - in my humble opinion.

It's like kinda like "cool & trendy" to be doing nothing there but just sit out in the hot humid weather (Imagine! KL!) and smoke and surf the internet or chat online. Even the professionals like bankers, insurance brokers, real estate agents, etc love hanging out there with the potential customers and close deals over coffee.

Maybe when I had nothing better to do after a movie during our courting days, we spent time there for a cuppa. But now, sigh .. wishing I had the time for proper sleep, not to mention hang out at Coffee Bean :-(

i cannot drink coffee after 5pm otherwise i need someone to play mahjong with me all thru the night. But then no one to play mahjong with me. So i just look at the ceiling or tv. But coffee is oh so nice! esp ICED!

yes, i agree with u. Places like coffee bean and starbucks are really tempting to me. The environment is kind of relax...most suitable for a meeting up with friends. It's true for a coffee lover like me.

I am also a coffee lover. But I limit myself one cup a day - morning.
My breakfast == a cup of black coffee. If I go yum cha at night, I will order Decaf, so that I won't have sleepless night.

i'm a coffee lover too. there is a bit of heaven when you actually sip it or having it swish around your mouth in your tongue and tasting that sweet bitter taste and aroma. ooohh i'm sure you'd know what I meant..LOL

i can drink coffee anytime, doesn't effect me. it's comfort 'food' drink for me.
