  1. Love that old-school coffee shop cup and saucer.

  2. Under the freezing conditions here – still and looks like this
    Antarctic freeze won't move – the coffee shops would really
    Thankfully the winds have gone – hope I haven't jumped the gun
    on this one – ha ha.
    Enjoy your warmth.
    I doubt if Adelaide would appeal at present????

  3. Awesome list! Thanks for sharing!

  4. I've been to RGB before. It is the only one close to my home in KL. Lovely place and great coffee! 😀

  5. Mmmmm….the coffee looks great as well as the cups it is served in!

  6. Interesting list….thanks for sharing! I will certainly bookmark these cafes 🙂

  7. BEAM is indeed very cool!

    By the way, I came across this interesting article on BBC yesterday.
    Let's see how many words do you still recognise… 😉

    • Oh yes, these words are still very much part of my vocabulary. Fav word, not mentioned in the video however, "nana" or "nanie" short for "banana". I'm sure Colin will have something to say about these words. 😉

  8. Pattern on the coffee, have watched this being done an I can't do it. Oh well some of us have it, and some don't.
