How to stay awake

old town kopitiam
Sorry for disappearing from the DP community for ages. I was not in vacation but just have been very busy lately which eventually has caused the lack of photo.

Anyway, here I am again, showing you a photo of a local franchise in Malaysia called the Old Town Kopitiam. It's a franchise which sells food like coffee [a bit different from Starbucks'], freshly-baked toast, fresh-boiled egg, noodles and etc. It's famous for its White Coffee. You should try it out in Malaysia. The price is very reasonable, too. The average price of a cup of coffee just cost you RM 2.50 - way cheaper than that of Starbucks which cost around RM10 for a "tall" latte.

I would agree with the ads - one cup is never enough. :p

Nice photograph.

Welcome back.

I liked reading your narrative too and noted your description of "fresh baked toast." That is how my mother used to make toast. She baked it in the oven.

I will definitely have to try this out when I'm in KL from Aug 3-6. Am staying at Traders Hotel by KLCC and hope to meet Edwin from the original KL Daily Photo.

Maybe you can contact him and see if we can all meet up.

Going to Beijing tomorrow.

Welcome back ... I try to frequent locally owned businesses. However, I have to admit Starbucks knows what I order when I walk in so I must spend a good bit of money there.

White coffee... That sounds very interesting! (I'm glad that franchise is different from $tarbuck$) :)
