I used to be a constant fixture of the library back when I was still a student. The habit started when it’s where I had to stay to get excused from attending ‘mass,’ as a non-Catholic studying in a Catholic school. I’d read all sorts that the shelves had to offer, and eventually, I have learned to determine what I tend to read up on, more often than others, even though I could read a while range, including ingredients at the back of my son’s cereal box.
These days, I find cafes as a great venue to load up on my readings and do some thinking time. I like all coffee shops by default. In particular, though, Caffe Ti-Amo in between Greenbelt 1 and 5 offers me a conducive escape from a busy weekday. Just when I thought Café France can’t get better, it came up with Caffé Ti Amo.
I’m afraid that by now, the staff there has already memorized what I’d order as I’d come close to the counter to pay-as-I-order: café mocha on a clear glass, egg salad sandwich, almond chocolate chip cookie (heated), and password for today’s free wi-fi. As I’d munch on these, I could hear fast clicks from laptop keyboards, the writer’s idea juices may have been overflowing as he seats and types over 2 scoops of in-house dark chocolate gelato.
The great thing is that my husband loves this place as well, being a coffee lover himself, although what hooked him was the thought that he’d have free wi-fi and I could leave him here while I do a little shopping in between.
