Today’s learning points:
1. Don’t order coffee at Pastamania (or rather, don’t go to Pastamania expecting edible foodstuffs - I forgot that the only decent Pastamania was at the foodcourt in Scotts Square).
It’s worse than the instant coffee you can get in cans. I only got through it because I needed the caffeine to stay awake.
The office is gigantic but I lucked out with a place in front of management … because she wants me to help with a pet project - it really is not the place to be struggling for consciousness when you’re a newbie on probation.
2. Do not count on a Coffee Freeze from a Soya Bean Drink franchise to help you forget the taste of Pastamania’s crappy coffee. That’s not to say the “Freeze” didn’t do the job - it washed out the taste of horrible coffee by being even more dreadful. I dumped that one in the bin because it made me gag. Dear Auntie behind the counter with the horrible scowl, how did you make soya bean milk and coffee taste so bad? HOW?!
I should have just headed for a can from the supermarket or queued for coffee from Ya Kun or Qi Ji. Argh.
3. I really should spend my first paycheck on a decent coffee machine. Something that I can switch on the moment I wake and gulp down before bolting out the door *___* that would make my day. /daydream
