Coffee, tea and sympathy

A nice taste of a local brewed coffee (UNLIMITED)

We all live in a world that we have the freedom to choose. We are in a position to be able to have what we want, and do what it takes to get it. I have discovered that I was a coffee addict around five years ago and ever since, I have been drinking at least a cup to start my day right. I am so into it I just couldn’t finish the day without drinking one even if it is already evening.

And with all the coffee shops sprouting all over the metro and even the outskirts (one coffee shop sprouts like mushrooms and to think of the influx, it seems everybody still do want to go there), it seem so fitting for me to visit any of them at any given time for me to satisfy my daily dose of the addicting caffeine.

And with all these temptations to try out every single coffee flavors and concoctions of this “wonder” drink, I have decided to stick with one single flavor and trying it (if possible) in every coffee shop available in the premises where the craving (or the necessity to stay in a place where there is en electrical outlet to check some e-mails) has occurred.

If you’re not believing that there’s chocolate in your coffee, they’ll give it to you and put it by yourself

What keeps me wondering is that even if the same flavor is being tried on the same brand, the taste of it between different branches is different and has never been consistent. Is it because there is really no standard of servings even if it is a franchised shop? Or it all just depend on your barista taking up the dose of the espresso or putting up a notch on the cream?

What I am trying to say is, there are standards in every merchandise, but there will always be flaws in which sometimes is not recognizable and can be harmless. But whatever it is, or eccentric as it may seem, it will never hinder me to have a nice dose of my favorite coffee.

Gestures for postures

Does pointing on a direction can lead you to somewhere?

It is now Election time here in our country. Candidates for each position are putting up their own gimmicks and antics in which the main aim is to stand out and leave a mark to their potential voters. Take for example the campaign posters. A lot of them are posted everywhere, and if you’re lucky , you’d be amused by some of the candidates’ poses and gestures.

The "L" word

Putting up a pose popularized by the chief executive’s clan

They do stand out in some way- some of it are very nice to look at and gets stuck on your head probably in a disturbing or in a funny way. But still, this could probably be their strategy to make them stick on people’s minds.

Matters of the “heart”

But whatever it may seem, it will all boil down to the person’s perspective if whether or not be influenced by these poses of the candidates on their posters. It will always have to be on the person’s hand marking on the blank space beside each candidate. Whatever influence it may be, it will always be up to the voter. In the coming elections, let’s exercise our right to vote, and vote for the person that you think will point you on the right direction, make your community/country popular or if you feel your heart is with them.

Vote right, wisely and whole-heartedly
