coffee in the morning is something i look forward to. and my coffee is not even brewed and so does not have that lovely aroma .it is only instant coffee and tesco’s basic at that, but it serves it purpose well enough for me anyway. haha. it is all psychological of course. now if they can produce the smell artificially, that would be perfect. because i like the smell of brewed coffee, but not the taste. 

i find this 100mg bottle was opened on 27.3.16 and it is allready close to finishing. so it did not even last me a month. and i like my coffee weak so i use only a teaspoon each time. i would imagine most coffee drinkers will buy the branded instant coffee and use up a lot more , maybe two of these bottles a month. and some of these branded instants can be £3 each. unlike my 50p instant. i used to drink nescafe instant, but they lost their aroma, which was the only reason i bought them. 

i did not use to drink that much coffee in the past, preferring tea, but it looks like i have got myself a habit now. still, it is a small habit and quite psychologically pleasing and enjoyable. so as habits go, it is a harmless one.

i still drink tea, during the rest of the day, as the way i drink it, the chinese way, weak without suger or milk, is a great way to drink water, as tap water , especially when boiled can be not only  be tasteless but does not taste nice. i think insipid is the word to describe it.

what do u think of last nights tv about what muslims think? about the survey of british muslim’s attitudes? i think it is a important survey and throws some light into why muslims as a religious group seem to be so willing to kill others because of their religious beliefs. 100,000 of british muslims sympathise with those who would kill others for their religious beliefs.

i get the impression, from the findings of what they believe in the survey, that islam is a religion which pervades a persons whole life. it is not something that they can take up on fridays only. in that way,it is very different from other religions. it is the only one that says if u are religious and a true believer, u will adhere and put to practise all the koran’s commands and injunctions without exception, nor can u pick and chose which u like . otherwise u are not a true believer.you are not a good muslim.  that practically stops all discussion and debate. if u dont follow the koran, u simply are not a true muslim. and so can be killed with impunity because u are an infidel. that is it. no wonder so many of them have no compunction in killing others who dont agree with them. it is self righteousness taken to its extreme level.

i know many muslims will say that is not how i interpret it, it is a good kind religion, and ask for tolerance of others. but the rest of us hear u, yet the koran do not say the same…no where can u find the koran  says turn the other cheek, love thy neighbour etc like the bible says… in fact it says the opposite.  so a ‘true muslim’, someone who thinks he is because he follows all the tenets of the  koran,  can turn round and say u are not a true muslim. you are not even a muslim because u dont follow all the koran asks of you. i think that is what makes a follower of islam dangerous. it takes only  100,000 followers like that to taint the whole religion and change society completely if u let them. 

i think the british will wake up from this survey to realise that just because in the past, refugees have integrated into the society and dont expect society to change to cater to them, that the islamic refugees will do the same too. but this survey shows it is not so.

    Countries accepted refuges on humanitarian ground. Yet the consequences of accepting them becomes very dire situation for all. Anyway…U have any preference of tea that u drink daily?

      i drink darjeeling, loose leaf, i seem to have settled on that now as my favourite. here sainsburys sell free trade 125mg of it for £1.50. and it lasts me 6months. i get a lot of pleasure drinking this tea during the rest of the day and night.

        Is it Indian tea? Never try it. All I drink is Chinese tea oolong and puli. Those two are not too strong for me.

    when i was growing up, my father would make chinese tea from tea leaves, fresh in a pot everyday, to be topped up with hot water as it gets drunk. but chinese tea dont seem to be sold here in the uk. at least i have not seen them in the supermarkets. here blended teas, are common. every supermarket have its own blended teas. and i used to drink them, they are strong teas, and great for drinking with milk and suger. too strong for me now that i drink tea without milk and suger. what i like about the darjeeling is that they look like tea leaves, unfurling in the pot. unlike the others, which look like twigs, or are powdery. the powdery ones gets into my mouth, as i dont use a filter.

    I drink nescafe instant gold blend. $13.90 a bottle. Only 1 teaspoon in the morning. Then I have a cup of Lipton tea or Twining’s Darjeeling or Earl Grey or English Breakfast 😉

        you know, now u mention tea, i remember boh tea has such a distinctive taste it will always remind me of malaysia/singapore. how come u dont take it?

      • Garfield Hug Friday April 15, 2016 at 5:06 pm #

        Boh tea comes in tea dust and it is used for Yakun or Breadtalk or Kopi Tiam stalls. I don’t know how to handle tea dust well do I use tea bags. The latest is tea in silk bags and my brother brought me some from India and it is truly aromatic leaves and flavorful.

        P.s. the next time you go grocery shopping do share how much is the same item in UK. I bet it is cheaper ha ha

      • alifesgayventure Friday April 15, 2016 at 5:02 pm #

        i googled tesco and they sell nescafe gold blend 200mg @ £5.99. so only slightly cheaper than singapore. maybe the singapore nescafe has an aroma… if it still have an aroma i would be tempted to buy it again.

        It does have a lovely aroma to me. I prefer it than the regular normal nescafe. Give it a try!

      • alifesgayventure Friday April 15, 2016 at 5:13 pm #

        the regular normal nescafe has lost its aroma that is why i have stopped buying it, but if u say the gold blend has an aroma, it will be worth a buy.
