Coffee and I

Originally posted on Ame's Monologues:
How did I get myself into coffee? “oh, you studied in Melbourne! Coffee Mecca of the world (I’d bet some folks from Seattle might have a thing or to to say about that), of course you’d be into coffee! How could you not?!” The thing is, as far as…

Coffee Buzz

Originally posted on Ame's Monologues:
So, here’s another attempt at reviving this blog. And what better way to jolt something to life than to give it some caffeine? I figured, since I never know what to write about, why don’t I just write about something I’m obsessed with, like…coffee! I’m not a coffee snob…

Attention Deficit

I think I’ve figured out why I have hard time updating my blog. You see, putting down thoughts onto the screen, in a comprehensive, structured way requires a lot of effort. It needs you to sit, plan out the flow of ideas, how they mesh into one another and ends up as something that makes…

Same Old Same Old

It’s been a couple of months since my last update. Since then I had the intention of putting up a few posts, but, they were mainly revolving around the market. Because I don’t want this blog to be a “finance market” blog, I put them on hold. Since nothing else was going on elsewhere in…

Home exercises

I have honestly lost count of how many days we’ve lived through this Movement Control Order (MCO). My rough estimate tells me we’ve just gone a couple of days over a month. Most people I know seem to be doing relatively okay, judging by their Instagram posts. I suppose we’re the lucky ones. I continue…

Change is cancelled

Earlier this year I was a little upbeat on how things were going. Finally I thought, things were turning up. Then things turned round pretty fast. There were a few hiccups along the way, but nothing we couldn’t handle. And then this whole pandemic thing just blew everything out of the water. It would be…

2019: An Introspection

Around the same time last year, I sat down to write about how my 2018 was. Reading back, last year for me was all over the place. It wasn’t catastrophic, though there were failures here and there, but it wasn’t much of a success either. I had hoped that 2019 would be a better year…

Merry Christmas!

Hi everyone! Just dropping by to say Merry Christmas. Still held up with a shit ton of stuff to do. A lot of things to pack, and get sorted. Have a good one! Happy holidays!

Change is coming

When I revived this blog, I had little expectations for what was going to happen. Initially when I set the whole thing up, I wanted it to be a personal blog. A space where I could write down my feelings and thoughts, a lounge for catharsis. As I time progressed, I realised that I never…

Adventures of a barista wannabe

A couple of weeks back, I was given the opportunity, by a friend, to set up a coffee kiosk at a kindy concert.

At first I was a little bit hesitant. I’ve never done anything of the sort. Mostly I would play barista at home, brewing up cups of coffee for myself, and for my occasional guests.
