Coffee Contentment

Suntory Craft Boss Coffee Black

I am particular about having it black. No sugar and milk, just pure bitterness.

There’s a lot of hype in recent years with niche cafes brewing their own beans and making coffee and owning them. Strangely, I never got drawn to them and prefer to stick with the more familiar taste of Asian-style brewed coffee.

Recently I got hooked to Suntory’s Craft Boss Coffee Black. I wasn’t a fan of Japanese canned coffee to begin with because the coffee usually tastes thin and doesn’t have a kick (coffee that tastes like water is NOT coffee. LOL). But this, now this, from Suntory is something else.

It’s hard to describe the anxiety creeping up on me when the store I initially bought the coffee from stopped stocking it. The anxiety turned almost into an ugly, depressive monster when the online store I found ran out of stock. And you know, it just isn’t the same with any other coffee, even if they are from the same company.

But today my life is complete now. COMPLETE. My order of SEVERAL bottles of this 500ml coffee heaven has just been delivered and I’m absolutely and thrilled to be soaked in caffeine bliss for the next couple of weeks.

You may laugh at me for getting upset, anxious and then being over the moon over coffee. But life is simple like that for me and today, right now, I’m happy with what I have. And I hope you’re happy with what you have and where you are today, right now, at this moment.




Ohai! I’m back!

Ohai! Visualspinner is Back!

Oh yeah, it’s been more than a while and I’ve fallen off the resolution train to get my posts consistently going.

That being said, it’s good to be back. 🙂

It’s the weekend and it’s been great so far. Taking time to rest and recharge, and also experiencing adrenaline rushes.

You see, it’s sneaker launches time and I’m a little sneaker fan myself so I thought, why not give a new Yeezy 350 V2 Butter sneaker a shot? If not for the fact I’m a little familiar with hot releases, bots and retailers’ server issues, I think I would have big, bald patches on my head from tearing them out with bitter frustration.

Melting hot in the sneaker world – Yeezy 350 V2 in Butter

In any case, I’ll see if the order gets through, otherwise I’ll count it as an eventful day (it could have been worse or way boring.)

Hope you guys are having fun this weekend wherever you are and be safe!

I Am, Therefore I Think And Do

Cogito Ergo Sum (“I think, therefore I am”) – Rene Descartes

This is a philosophical quote that many people have let it roll off their tongue and believe in it. Yet of late, this quote is challenged during my reading adventure.

What you think doesn’t mean you believe in it or it represents who you are. A thought has to have a source of origin, so without ‘I am’ the thought wouldn’t exist. And “I am” would have lost its meaning.

So I’m inclined to believe that when you believe you are, you think and do stemming from who you are.

I am, therefore I think and do.

Sixth Haiku

Haiku Time

Haven’t done this in a while, so here’s one that many living in a city can relate to.

In the crowded train
Body to body, they pack
Like sardines in can

(I can almost imagine the smell…ewwwwww.)

Thank You

Thank you

I don’t think it’s being said often enough. Definitely not for me.

There’s much to be thankful for. Mainly these thank yous are for the people who left their footprints in my life, good or bad. In different ways, it helps me to grow and be more aware of what it takes to be a better person.

This is not said in jest. Being thankful helps me to see life in a positive light than otherwise, and life becomes easier and nicer to get by. I also realize I don’t feel in lack when I am thankful.

So, thank YOU. 🙂

Let It Go

let it go

I know. If you are reading this, some Disney animated movie is going to pop up in your head.

But no, it’s definitely not about that. It’s about letting go of the pent-up frustrations we keep inside ourselves consciously or subconsciously.

I am reminded that at the end of the day, accumulating all these frustrations or anger is only going to make things worse. Your body responds to the constant stress it is receiving from these emotions and slowly but surely something inside your body is going to break down from this stress.

And it’s easy to let the emotions get to us and let it ruminate in our heads, keep ourselves as a hostage to these feelings.

The best each of us can do for our well-being is to let these emotions go. Acknowledge them when they present themselves but eventually let them go. Your body will thank you for it.

Life Is Like Tea

life is like a cup of tea

Can’t say for others but sometimes I feel like I’ve lived my life so fast that I don’t savor and enjoy each and every moment. It’s always worrying about school, work, relationships and self that I don’t realize time has gone by in a wink.

Now that I’m older, I want to enjoy and live every moment for all its worth. The good and the bad. Take stock of the people and things around us and move on to living our best lives ahead.
