That Coffee Place

Taking time to breath & see the world go by in between the chaos swirling around

Imagine sitting in that cafe. Once again drinking a bit too much coffee again then healthy for yourself. Slowly sipping on the cold blended over-priced coffee with bits of cherry that you like anyway despite.

People meeting up & catching up. A place for old friends who haven’t seen each other in a while. Laughing, smiling & soaking in the atmosphere.

You notice that the deco is decidedly different. Elegant comes to mind. Slightly rich, dark & classic, yet warm all at the same time. Soft yellow light bathes down & gives everything around just that slight golden shiny glow. Evening is slowly coming. Unbid. Unhurried.

In the distance, the horizon stretches out & tapers off. Grass, waves & mountains all fill your sight, and you feel at peace.

Peace you haven’t had for a while. Peace that fills you like the lingering smell of childhood nostalgia. It feels good to be alone. Never mind the proverbial male cave & all that. It feels good. Just you & yourself. Alone. Well… not counting the notebook idling in front of you of course.


Moments of paradise. And your companion arrives. You find yourself being one of those people busy laughing & chatting. You laugh softly to yourself as she finishes the entire chocolate Christmas log slice that she bought without herself even noticing (she’s hungry after all).

All at that coffee place.

Tell me why you like love coffee, or comment on our 1st story-like post on this blog =).

    Well, your story (real or fiction) definitely caught my interest.. I was eager to know what happened after? πŸ˜‰

    Btw, a couple of minor spelling errors on the intro line. πŸ˜‰

  4. Nothing beats communist-made coffee, eh ? Just don’t start screaming for lMAO.

    I hardly drink coffee, I somehow can’t find the reason for disliking it, it’s just that feeling. I even make a quick joke on frappocino (free internet point for anyone who laugh).

    Perhaps I should try a cuppa when I come back to KL this december, near christmas, at least all by my own. ;o

  5. drats… Im reminded of BFM ^o^

    hmmm… cafe at the sight of grass, waves & mountain. sound like Queensbay or E-gate. Hah!

    im no heavy coffee drinker (unlike stev), but i just love the smell of coffee. the whiff while walking past Starbucks and Coffeebean. perks me up.

    my chilhood fav – dipping biscuits in coffee!

  6. I drink coffee because I like the smell of a freshly brewed cup. I like the feel of the warm cup in my hand. I most like to sit on the front step, regardless of the weather, and take in the morning.

    I like to sit to drink coffee. I am not a commuter drinker because drinking it in the car is about drinking it, and that’s not even what I like best!
