I started the journey early on Saturday and we had a nice stroll at the Taiping lake... due to the rain, the plants and the trees glitter and the lake is not "drought looking"…

Couldn't even think about engaging in a conversation until I had my morning dose of caffeine.
But I'm patting myself on the back as it's been one month since I've given it up. No more sumatra blends, fresh roast or mocha java.
