[1: 1,994 of 10,000] Pet Peeve

In Review on April 30, 2020 at 7:56 AM


Let’s talk about a pet peeve of mine and I’ll let you into how my brain works in connection to an actual feeling or stimulation. Don’t wander to a dirty mind, but well it involves the lips so proceed with caution.

A ceramic mug that isn’t transparent like the photo above is only meant for hot beverages or hot soup for me. I never felt comfortable using it for drinking plain water or any cold beverages including ice coffee, especially with ice cubes. It is so uncomfortable for me drinking water from a mug like it made it denser and it’s harder for me to swallow.

A mug without an ear is not a good mug at all, I don’t want to burn my hand while I sip. I take note restaurants and coffee shops who use a tissue paper or some kind of a cloth to protect the hands, it’s not working!

Water or any cold beverages will only be enjoyable for me to drink if it’s in clear glass (perfect) or a transparent mug is also acceptable.

I haven’t figured out my trauma about glasses but I am using the appropriate container for a particular drink.

What’s your pet peeve? Do you have the same feeling about my mug and glass dilemma or it’s just me?

Yay! Someone invites me for A DRINK and my brain raises to all directions. If you are interested, here are my thought processes:

  1. A drink, he’s French, does he expects me to drink wine? I’m a margarita drinker. Tequila baby.
  2. My alcohol tolerance is crazy low, a bubbly could give me a light head and I need to drive. Mocktail is it? Or take a cab?
  3. He’s a senior in the company, it’s just a friendly drink right? And it’s not like he’s based in Dubai, maybe the next time I see him is in 5 months?
  4. He’s not married right? I wanted to learn from people in our company and I’m going to get that chance the most I can.
  5. Tomorrow is a work day, I felt like a child that has to be in bed early to have the energy for tomorrow and the whole work week.
  6. What are we going to talk about? What should I share? Go with the flow?
  7. I’ve asked my best friend and she said it’s nice to meet new people, and she’s right!
  8. I am overthinking this and just make it light since it’s not like I like him or something.
  9. It’s making me nervous.
  10. I always believe that when I’m not sure what is it, what is the intention, then don’t go.

I got the invitation yesterday at 6ish in the evening and I just replied early in the morning after 12 hours. I am almost saying yes because I clarified what time and place do he had in mind. Well, let’s see.

This is our water dispenser at home. It’s cute. We didn’t get the one with Hot & Cold not just because we are saving electricity but we do drink our water at room temperature. We do make ice cubes though for our home-made well ingredient-filled iced tea. ♥

I have a growing love for the Regular Nescafe 3 in 1. All I have to add is fill my cup with 3/4 of hot water, not a full cup because it would be tasteless as per my taste bud. I let it sit until it’s no longer too hot to drink.

My day is not complete and I can’t be fully awake without my cup of coffee. I am not an addict, well not yet. 😀

[1: 602 of 10,000] Power Horse Energy Drink

I tried drinking the Power Horse Energy Drink made in Austria.

I usually drink Red Bull but for review purposes, I tried the three flavors and no I didn’t drink all 4 of them (on the photo) in one gulp because according to one of the labels, consuming more than 500 ml (or 2 of those) will not be good for my health. Very honest label and I like it.

I did try to drink the maximum for a day which means the original flavor “Energy Drink,” actually the one in red bottle didn’t say it’s an Energy Drink so I tried both of the same color just to ensure they have the same taste. It tasted like Red Bull. I drank it almost in the mid noon and I can’t sleep until 1am in the morning. Totally regretted drinking 500ml!

The Pink one, which is “Sugar Free” is almost the same as the original flavor only a bit stronger but still nothing special.

The biggest surprise for me is the Blue one, which is the “Energy Cola.” I got to admit I love Coke and Pepsi and this taste like that and the good news is it’s an Energy Drink.

I am a fan of Energy Drink because it could keep my nerves alive and never let me yawn in times of really needing not to nap. So far, Power Horse fairs well. I will surely drink more of the “Energy Cola” and might even try their suggested Cocktails one day.
