Coffee

Peas would usually start her mornings with a cup of coffee, especially during the study break just to keep myself awake throughout the day without napping. Hehe...

But now that it's the holidays, I still need that daily dose of caffeine. *sigh*

Why sigh?

Cause coffee is getting expensive. *ROFL*
It really is.

Look, early this year 30sticks of Nescafe 3 in 1 regular is only rm8.99 on promotion, which made it only 30cents per stick. Nowadays, when there's promotion, each stick is slighty more expensive than 30cents.
(only my housemates will understand this "calculative" me, they could list down the lamest statements I've ever made on saving money. *ROFL*)

Anyways, back to story, not only that, when there's a price promotion on Nescafe, I seldom get to buy it. Meh. Most of the time I only see this sign on the shelves,

"Out of Stock"

Meh. Talk about wanting to save money. So instead of getting the regular Nescafe, I'll have to settle for other brands such as Old Town White Coffee which is wayyyy expensive. It's almost 50-60cents per stick. *sigh*

And once I got acquinted with the rich aroma of the white coffee, a regular nescafe tastes bland. Which in the end, starts a new cycle of Peas needing a more expensive coffee to drink. Meh.

As peas was bored today, she googled facts about coffee and found this few very interesting.

October 1st is official "Coffee Day" in Japan.
(whee...I wonder if they give out free coffee during that day..hehe)

Coffee is the second most traded commodity in the world (oil is the first.)
(Let's hope the price of coffee won't fluctuate and increase like oil, if not the malaysian government may come up with some silly policy like changing the price of coffee every month. ;p)

Scientists have discovered more than 800 different aromatic compounds in coffee.
(wah..doesn't that make coffee beans suitable for use in aromatherapy? LOL)

Black coffee with no sugar contains no calories.
(ceh..peas don't drink black coffee, that's why she's taking in more calories..*sigh*)

Caffeine, which is found in coffee, increases the effect of some painkillers, especially aspirin and paracetamol.
(hehe...this explains why you zhuan needs coffee and painkillers together ;p)

Peas hopes for the day when she shall stop drinking coffee on a daily basis. But then again, when coffee tastes this sinful heavenly...
it makes it hard to stop drinking, doesn't it?
