A so call "Seasoned IT Professional" who has worked for over 26 years in the Information Technology / Financial industry. One day it came to mind that should I continue to work in a fast lane or take a break. Without any hesitation, I quit my job and start my new life.

Iced Coffee 凍咖啡

踏入五月,氣溫飆升,日間溫度接近三十度,再加上一件件不可思議,荒謬絕倫的事天天活現眼前,更令人覺得心情煩燥,就來個冰凍咖啡降降溫吧。 今次要飲的不是普通加了冰的咖啡,而是冰滴咖啡。那和近日頗受關注的冷萃咖啡又有甚麼關係呢? Stepping into May, the weather is getting hotter and hotter. Along with those inconceviable and ridiculus things happened everyday, I got anxious very easily. Having a glass of cold coffee may make me feel relieved. The coffee I'm going to have is not just coffee served with ice, it is the Cold Drip Coffee instead. So how is it related to the Cold Brew Coffee that got much attention in these days?

BKOOL – A Subscription Based Virtual Cycling Platform

Specialty Coffee from Convenience Store

If you have read my previous post on my status update and flash visit to Taipei, you might notice a box of coffee was lying on the low left corner of the feature image. This is one of the two Specialty Coffee products available under the Taiwan 7-11 City Cafe Premium sub-brand.

Product Review Video 產品使用報告短片

Just watched a YouTube clip from one of my subscribed channels https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcKiojKWOF0Tm7tRrXFSf7Q. From the title "[幹話連篇] 飛馬601N 使用心得", this seems to be a video review of the new coffee grinder. However, it turns out that there is NO actual discussion on the Pros and Cons of the machine despite it was pulled out and pushed back a number of times. 午後有點無聊,看了一段YouTube短片。單從標題"[幹話連篇] 飛馬601N 使用心得",大家一定以為這是個全新咖啡磨豆機的用家報告。雖然片主多次的把磨豆機拉出拉入,可是直到這段短片的結尾仍然沒有討論過甚麼產品的亮點或缺點。

What a Big Surprise

One of the measures taken here in Hong Kong to address the outbreak of Novel Coronavirus is "Work from Home".  Such practice had been extensively adopted by me before my retirement. The impact to restaurants/cafes like us, that mainly served office workers, is a significant drop in business. We have to accept this as it ...

Surgical Mask, this is All I Wanted 一罩難求

Just like most of the people in Hong Kong, I queued up at a pharmacy early in the morning hoping to get some surgical masks.
