Coffee Game So Strong.

Remember this comfy nook with coffee game so strong it felt like I was having a cognac. And maybe the best brews are those which kind of remind you of some stronger blend. You’re both awake and lulled into other sensations. I’ll have another, please.

Social Surgery

Social surgery is a bit of a favorite experience when I’m in the city. It’s for those moments when you need a buzz but not too much. Given a tolerance close to nil, this one will set me up for the night. And by that, I mean it’s straight to dreamland. This is for the…

A dash of cognac

Early day, running around the city to take pictures and get some work done. Part of the reward is hoping into this nook of a coffee haunt. The white brew is memorable and something I always come back to. And, as often as I can, I add a dash of cognac. Just a hint.

Best cup of coffee.

      What’s the best cup of coffee? It’s the brew you make with your eyes struggling to open / a waft of perfume guiding your toes between sleep and wakefulness / heavy clouds of sleep hide from the din The cup that makes you believe you’re a poet at such an ungodly hour.

Too sweet, after you

And to warn future goers, only take one at a time. A tripleshot Viennese coffee, panna cotta and chocolate bingsu don’t have to be consumed in one sitting! Stay alert! Be aware.

Hazelnut Latte fix from Bali

Some time March 2018, I was forced into time off. Have to say… was the most pleasant out of the office activity in a long time. Also, has anyone mentioned that the Hazelnut latte in Bali’s Bamboo Green School is out of this world? It’s not the sledgehammer-type street coffee you encounter in Phnom Penh or…

Hongdae street crawl

Right. I lied. South Korea is definitely more than just Hongdae. This university street has back alleys for the curious and anti-social. Wandering along those tiny roads at night brings about rap battles on one side, a zombie coffee shop in another and some dude with his car’s trunk popped open. Upon closer inspection, I…

Temple raiding, caffeine break

What to do in Siem Reap? Lots of walking, running around and finding your way through life-sized Tetris blocks. Once in a while stop by a sidewalk stall and grab a sweet dumpling, which goes best with their sledgehammer-type coffee. Oh, you think dark coffee is your ally. But you merely adopted dark coffee; this brew…

Staccato Travel

2014 ushers in much like the day before or the week before and I’ve come to understand that goals don’t jump in front of you like a surprise. More in tortoise manner, they’re a trifling staccato towards perceived ends. Most times the result morphs with time, not exactly what you’d first imagined but more than…

Dapitan: In your spare time, draw fish.

Colours will distract you some days and they’re captivating enough to count as valid nutrition sources. Think photography, for me, has always involved tiptoeing lines between light and shadow; it’s a time-consuming exercise and a healthy distraction that sometimes serves it’s purpose, drawing in cash when necessary. Myriad of hues with it’s hint of comedy,…

Sustain the habit.

Continually, life blindsides me on an innocent Tuesday while you’re simply flowing with the tides. Salt to the face, ocean breeze, stray jellyfish nipping at your leg. My childhood, continuously tethered to bodies of water; the ocean a metaphor for life. What am I getting at? I’m not so sure yet, I just know that…

Paubari’s Third Son: Dumalapdap

I’d been itching to make this… finally got the time to do it today. If you see an awkward resemblance between Dumalapdap and Vincent Valentine from the Final Fantasy series then you’re just imagining things. Shortly after Humadapnon left their home to seek revenge on Saragnayan’s family and followers, Dumalapdap embarked on a quest of…
