Starbucks Coffee Company (Myer)


Libby reminds me of Henry Ha
they both like to fold serviette roses everywhere they go
Quite cool.. I can only make serviette balls


Latte and Hot Chocolate
from Starbucks Myer
Actually I stopped drinking
espresso coffee from Starbucks for a long time
ever since they started using Sissy-Verismo
Thats why if you see me at Starbucks
most likely I'm having COD or Hot Chocolate

Please bring back La Marzocco!

HOT WOK CAFE CITY (City)


Dinner was at HOT WOK CAFE CITY
33-34 Elizabeth Arcade
Brisbane City


They give complimentary soups for every meal ordered


新洲米粉 (Singapore-styled Vermicelli)
Very tasty.. but I think the chef is trying to kill me
cos its VERY VERY spicy
Shiok for the cold weather!


Sze-Chuan styled Chicken with Rice
On the contrary this dish is not spicy at all
Why? Why? Why?


Very value for money
Everything is below $10 each
and have nice seating area with television
However cos the kitchen is VERY near to the dining area
you can hear the chefs cursing and swearing in Cantonese
can be quite vulgar and explicit
