  1. I love the presentation, and your first photo is sublime!

  2. Now that’s an interesting combo.

  3. Just what I needed as “Pick me Up” after the ladies final last night.
    I reckon “Deutschland uber alles” rang out with great gusto around the Brandenburg Gate last night or very early morning time in Germany.
    Angelique was a very worthy winner of the trophy and boy oh boy was she excited.
    Well $3 million plus would get me excited also – ha ha.
    The addition of that pepper stick (red garnish on top) would certainly give this drink the
    “Kick of a Mule”.
    Sauna like at present but some storms are predicted and I can hardly wait for the cooling down – Pheeeeeeeeeeeeee !

    • I keep coming back just to look at that pool – how I wish I was now in it.

    • I refuse to talk to you about tennis Colin! Hubby snuck a pair of headphones into a restaurant last night and ‘secretly’ listened to the final. 😉
      Would you believe they’re predicting temperatures of 16 degrees over her for Chinese New Year!?! Now that, if it comes to pass, will certainly be extraordinary.

    • And pray tell what is wrong with El Caning Cordobes Jnr, listening to the tennis?
      We Cordobes boys stick like GLUE !!!!
      16 degrees in KL????????????
      That is amazing – here it is “sauna like” and yet those bloody rain storm clouds
      just come and go.
      Enjoy that cool weather whilst you can.
      El Colin Cordobes (the Middle one).

  4. Interesting ingredients in the drink.
    That pool looks inviting, believe me.

    • Mum reports ferocious temperatures up north too. There’s supposed to be a cooler change predicted across the region.
