Caramel Macchiato

Recently I’ve taken to drinking two cups of coffee a day at work. One cup would be Caramel Macchiato, and the other could either be Creamy and Sweet Coffee Brew, or hot Caffe Mocha.

But my coffee expense does not exceed 30 pesos. Thanks to this company-subsidized coffee vending machine:

There are about 3 or 4 of these machines just outside the pantry. I didn’t pay much attention to it before, but I realized that as long as I drank coffee at the right time of the day, it actually helped me. So now, it’s become a coffee habit. Or is one week of doing it too soon to call something a habit? Whatever.

Don’t worry about my caffeine intake. Each cup is teeny tiny. My ceramic Starbucks mug is barely half full. If I still wanted to drink lots of water though, I’d have to bring another tumbler. Or I can alternately use my mug for coffee and water, which isn’t a bad idea naman. So we’ll see.

The key is not forgetting to bring a fresh clean reusable/spill proof mug with me everyday. I left it at home once, and I felt so bad about it. I didn’t like having to buy bottled juice anymore. It feels like having too much sugar and bad for the environment too.

So, really, the simple act of bringing a tumbler/mug to work does wonders. It’s:

  1. Economical
  2. Eco-friendly, and
  3. Healthy Smile



Wonder why I’m writing about coffee? Well, I’m a little bit bummed. Remember when I posted about the printer I bought in 2011? I’m about to give up on it. It just takes too much effort to get it to work smoothly. I was so excited about printing photos and other stuff for Project Life with it, but it just refuses to cooperate 75% of the time. The ink through the tubes tend to dry out unless you use the thing regularly. Ugh. Thoughts of flyer printing, and getting my Project Life pages done weekly are out of the window. It’s just not going to happen.

Question is, is a new printer the answer? Maybe not.
