Made from Caffeine and Cocoa

Coffee can cause cancer,
Chocolates are good for health...


That was what i frequently come across in health magazines and newspaper articles. The reason I'm so interested in these two statements is because...

I'M A CAFFEINE AND COCOA ADDICT!!!
and i give credit to Mummy and Daddy dearest for introducing me to the wonderful world of caffeine beverage and smooth cocoa indulgence....

My parents are both coffee lovers and my dad loves chocolates.
And i inherited the best of both genes of good taste.haha..

Fuelling my taste buds..I live in the town of White Coffee..IPOH!!You can get totally great tasting white coffee in an of the coffee shops here.Only the other day,i went for breakfast with my cousin,Sze Haw,my aunt and uncle..i ordered iced white coffee.And the TALLEST cup of white coffee appeared at our table:-
<-----LOOK!!

Somehow,white coffee is always foamy at the top like 'teh tarik'.

I like mine iced with less sugar..
Still,I don't get to drink this everyday because its more pricey then an average cup of coffee.
And,I need to control my coffee dependency...
Thank goodness for instant 3-in-1 coffee...


Long live Nescafe and Chek Hup!!

Coffee always goes very well with chocolate..

Mind you,I'm not talking about mocha..Ever tried sitting comfortably on the sofa on rainy day with a hot cup of coffee and a box of chocolates from the fridge??Its complete heaven...

Not just any old box of chocolates though...
Good quality chocolates.My personal favourite is the Guylian dark chocolates and the truffle filled ones...
Sadly,nice chocolates are really expensive here.


But every cloud has a silver lining!! And the silver lining for chocolate supplies is Langkawi!!Everything there is tax free!!And you can get chocolates which aren't sold in the rest of the Peninsular...I went to Langkawi with my Mummy in April;we stopped at a small island called Pulau Tuba.It was pretty remote but very beautiful.Let me show you some pictures:-


Back to the chocolates.Each time one of my family goes to Langkawi,we stock up the fridge.And it'll last for months!!!Let me show you our latest loot from Langkawi:-
<----Whoever created liquor-filled chocolates are total geniuses!!!


They burstin your mouth and flood your tongue with rich,warm liquor..silky and totally DELICIOUS!!!



My other favourites are these below:-


Ferrero Rochers!!!!!----->

They have different layers and its so nice to slowly strip away each creamy part..

Mmmmm.....





Chocolates with macadamia nuts are irresistible!!

<---This bar here was bought by my Mummy...Can't wait to open it!!!



There are many more chocolates which I've tried,LOVE and can't wait to taste again.However,these indulgences must be restricted because my weight is escalating,my waistline is expanding..
*SIGH*
I got to watch the sugar intake...

To my defense though..since coffee causes cancer and chocolates are good for health...aren't I balancing the health pros and cons by consuming both??

*giggles*

Oh well,if ever I have a sudden craving for caffeine and cocoa,
there's always my trusty M&Ms and Nescafe 3-in-1 to fall back to...


We all need some comfort food once in a while...

It would be cruel to neglect my sweet tooth......
