The most expensive coffee in the world?

One of my adopted younger sisters recently brought home a miniature bottle of "Coffee Luwak" and showed to us in the kitchen while I was helping my mom to cook.

I got a bit surprised when there were some texts written as "Coffee Luwak is the most expensive coffee in the world" ! and "A cup of Coffee Luwak could cost USD 60" !

After going through some readings in the net, the selection process of these expensive coffee beans were made possible by a type of mammal known as "Asian Palm Civet".

These beans are eaten and then passed through the Civet's digestive tract in which these beans yield an aromatic coffee with much less bitterness.

It is a bit strange for me to know, nevertheless it is an interesting topic. What do you think? :)

Toy @ Office

Last few weeks back, I discovered a toy on top of the cabinet near my cubicle. It belongs to my friend, a printing subcontractor a.k.a the Xerox guy.

It took him a while to transform the truck into a robot just like Transformers cartoon in the nineties. According to this bloke (the owner), the toy is more for showcase than to be used as normal toy for kids.

The black coloured lorry/robot which is also known as Optimus Prime is the limited edition model and I guess that bloke could be paying a lot for these toys as he has already collected a few.

This hobby could be interesting for some, but not for me because, you will never know when you will stop collecting. :P

Joshua: My baby boy

It has been a while since my last post as I am now so busy after becoming a father. Here's a pic of the Little Baba :)

Few days after his delivery, baby Joshua has to be admitted to Pantai Hospital for Jaundice check as I sensed his eyes were a bit yellowish. It was not so serious but we (my wife and I) prefer to send him for early treatment. 

The next day, he was allowed to be home after an overnight of UV light phototherapy. Once back home, there were good signs of recovery. He has been drinking (milk) and sleeping well so far. Being a father is not that easy and I am still learning day by day ... :)

Upcoming activity(ies)
