Cafe Hopper and Poem: Danger…Danger…

There’s danger everywhere!
They are hidden in the home
In your dark closets in your room
You don’t always see them
But they are always looking out for you
They will catch you unawared
And blow your mind off when they hit you

The fear of them lead us to
A constant need for security
Signs put up, to warn and
To keep out.
“Back off, danger ahead”
That’s what they are saying.
You better watch out…
That is what mummy is warning.

Danger seen and unseen
What grip us most
Is things that we seeth not
They corner you to the dark wall
Making your pores
Arrested by frozen cold
In the lonely silent night
You can cry and none heareth

We can run and we can flee
But we can’t hide
Danger comes and danger goes
We lift our chests and brave the storm
“We’ll be stronger” saith the wise.
Often be…our courage take flight
When danger strikes again…
Look straight and say “Hi”

Cafe Hopper feeling extremely tired!

Since the early morning, I have been feeling extremely tired and sleepy. To be honest, I slept quite a fair bit over the weekend but still I am feeling to lethargic. This is the time I wish I am in some cafe corner of Bangkok…ok…maybe Singapore will do. I haven’t got the time to explore some of the latest cafe haunts in Singapore. I guess it’s because every time when I am back at home, I am always busy with work and other matters. Only when I am back in my ‘hometown’….ermmmm….I mean Bangkok, that I have the time to move from cafe to cafe and hop from one corner to another corner. Perhaps I must find sometime to really explore the cafe scene in Singapore and write about them soon.

Anyway, putting this entry is just my way of distracting myself from my lethargy. I hope it works ….

Till next time with more cafes to recommend my faithful followers and readers….

Cafe Hopper returning to Singapore

Hi….yes I have been wandering in Thailand for almost three months and its been a very wonderful experience away from home. I really miss home a lot but I always try to keep myself busy over here so that I won’t think so much about it. Although my family and I are like 1000 over km apart from each other, I can feel the closeness between us. I know this sounds so ironic but it is true. Every phone call that I make and every text messages I received from my family members mean a lot to me. I have like about one week or slightly more in Thailand and I will be back at home again. There are so many cafe places that I would like to go when I am back. There are so many cafes in Singapore that I have sat there and did so much of thinking and chatting with friends. I guess that’s really make a cafe unique at the end of the day. It doesn’t matter about the decor or the location. Its the people that you are with in the cafe. Its the memories that you have forged over a cup of latte or iced mocha. Its that little corner in a cafe that you will always find yourself sitting there, writing…thinking….ipading…reading and etc….

So…I will be back soon and I hope I am able to give my readers more insight into cafe and hopefully giving you some inspiration in coffee drinking….

My Little New Toy

My Little New Toy
Just bought a little new toy for myself. With his new toy, I am able to stay connected as I am on the move. Yes, I bought a mini laptop. Though not a very good brand but it is ok, cos I just need a simple one to stay online when I am on the move or relaxing in a cafe. This one is really small and convenient. It is only 1kg with the battery. This is reallly light. I think this will be my new companion as I travel from one place to another.
This one for only $499…so think it is cheap. Plus, I can claim $400 from LDS. So I will only pay $99.00 for this new toy. Kool? I think it is kool!
