Take your time, have a cup of Coffee...

I have to admit, i'm addicted to coffee recently. The coffee i mean here is Old Town White Coffee with natural cane sugar.

The funny thing is i used to dislike coffee for the past 22 years. Haha...

I started drinking coffee this year during my internship period (March-June). I had to wake up very early every morning to go to work. To kill my sleepiness, i drank coffee. I can't really drink much coffee because of palpitation. So, i just added a bit Nescafe in my Milo and it became Neslo. I drank it almost every working day during that period.

I started with Nescafe. Then my brother recommend me Old Town White Coffee and i started to like it and abandoned Nescafe. I would mix half packet of Old Town White Coffee with 2 teaspoons of Milo. Yum yum..

I stopped after my internship ended and started to drink it again lately during my study week. I drink it almost everyday but not everyday la..haha. I'll start my day with a cup of Neslo and biscuits or bread. After that, i only start studying.

I drink and drink and drink until running out of supply only i realized my addiction to it. I would crave for it. I substituted it with Nescafe Gold which i bought long time ago but it doesn't satisfy my taste bud, haha..

We always hear that coffee is bad for health. Actually, coffee is not as bad and harmful to health. Moderate consumption of coffee can be good for health.

Health benefits of coffee
