My mother in law arrived from KL at just after midnight on Sunday. She learned that my SO is taking three days leave starting today and thought it would be nice to spend time together. My mom in law also brought along my sister in law who had just finished her SPM.
I had no problem fetching them from the bus station as I usually sleep late anyway. In fact, I slept at 4:00am on that day. A few hours later I was wide awake as I was scheduled to guide relatives of mine on how to get to the highway (they were from Ipoh and unfamiliar with JB roads). Imagine my surprise when I saw that my mom in law has literally fainted!
My mom in law is quite dependent on caffeine to get up and running. Without her dose of Nescafe (or compatible product) she’ll be flat and weak. I went out and bought her some premixed Nescafe and she’s immediately up and running after that.
Wow, that’s scary. Thankfully she’s OK with Nescafe as I definitely don’t have the budget for some weird gourmet coffee like cappuccino, espresso, or some hybrid like capresso.
More importantly though, it got me thinking about my own coffee consumption. I always have some instant coffee stock in the office. I used to have them at home too, but recently I’m more interested in ice cold tea (probably it’s the weather).
What about you? Are you a caffeine addict? I mean real addict here… not just because you want to be seen at Starbucks or whatnot just to look yuppily cool.
