Colours of Passion

Love the simple video, using colours to describe emotions. 

(JP Cooper, feat. Kojey Radical)

We've got a problem, sitting in front of two piles of albums
We were so happy the times that we bought them
All that we know about love is ending
All that we have learned
Helping you up when I don't even wanna
Carry in boxes of memories for ya
I'm not a smoker, but now I'm searching, for a light

I'll be having a party
And all our friends are having a laugh, hey
But it's not so funny to me
When morning comes, you will be gone, hmm

We've got a problem, they're playing our song but
We're done with the dancing
It won't be long before everyone's asking
Wishing that we could still talk about it
You'll get all that we have got
Your own decisions will come back to haunt ya
And I'll be the ghost of the lover who lost ya.
Is there a way that we can talk about it? Oh, no

I'll be having a party
And all our friends are having a laugh, hey
But it's not so funny to me
When morning comes, you will be gone, hmm

We're just having a party
This feeling I got afew more rounds, hey
Nobody knows it than me
When morning come, you will be gone, ohh
When the music stops

I can never bite my tongue when I'm love drunk
Tell wisdom hold me back, you're fave to take a shot
Your destiny was chasing these dreams
Just got me lost, well, I've gone too far
Temptation when it may plan
These lemons are far too bitter, a double came on the rocks
This was never breaking news
(All that we've been through)
We might never get that time back, but never needed to
Wait for me, I am way too selfish, I am way too
Way too helpless, I am way too much
This can't be healthy for us
Understand we over stood like Badu
And Mali was us
When you told all I needed was trust
We'll make it work
Truth back and forth just make it less
Every piece of advice could fill the hass
Replace could only help you remember wealth
Why can't I smile when I'm happy for you?
Pop a bubble, tryi'na subtle
So you know this already, shouldn't have to tell you
Who cares if I make a scene?
This is my house, this was our home
Before you turned the lights out
Wisdom told me let her go, they told me that you'd come back
Your destiny's yours to chase
I try to keep up my tap
I promises on your finger
Your weapons upon my back
I promise to have my back
You promise that you'll be...

Out & About: Cosans Coffee, Sunway Pyramid

We found ourselves with a bit of time to while away in Sunway Pyramid shopping mall. As is common on weekends, the mall was full of shoppers and the post lunch crowd. Mom did some bit of shopping and after a while we got into a peckish mood. We found a relatively vacant cafe called Cosans Coffee and plonked our rears into some seats (relief for bad achey backs).

I liked the decor, dark browns, woods and earthy tones matched with blacks. Felt masculine and more muted than say Starbucks or CBTL. The seeming toned down ambiance appealed much to my older sensibilities.

The menu was for the most part, typical of coffee cafes, drinks based on coffee and teas with a selection of foods that go well with both. I was for the most part quite unimpressed about the place, but the aroma of the coffee wafting from the coffee machine decided it for me. Waited in line and was quickly attended to by the boyish gaggle of Baristas there. They were fun, making good recommendations and actively courted for favourable response from the customers. I did notice that they spoke good Manglish (not Mangled English, but Malaysian English, interspersing BM words into their English) further making them feel open and friendly and peculiarly disarming.

We ordered a few drinks, and 3 slices of cake (peckish or plain kebulur?). I order my customary Americano On The Rocks (Espresso poured over ice) and Sis had a Coffee Frap. The cakes were Almond Cream Sponge , Mississippi Mud and Chocolate Hazelnut Slice. Quite different cakes but with a central note of chocolate and nuts carrying through.

The skies opened and Angels sang when I took my first sip of my American OTR. The now cool brown & black liquor was very deep, smooth and carried with it an extremely long finish of dark chocolate. The drink elicited a wonderful chewing response that somehow further amped the chocolaty undertones. Glorious it was. Sis' drink like wise too had this deep finish, that sat atop the thick and creamy mix of the blended drink. It had been a long while since I had such coffee with a Strong individual character such as this, being accustomed to Starbucks (Medium Roasted beans mostly) levels of Espresso based drinks.

We enquired as to what kind of beans they used and the Baristas stated that theirs were a blend of Arabica beans from the Indonesian continent. On the mouth feel and aromas, I imagine it would be a mix of Arabica and Robusta beans (get off your snooty Arabica high horse and try other beans Razee!). Such a good character of coffee to use as their house blend. In the end, I ordered another large American OTR before we left. It was that fucking good!

The total bill came up to almost RM 100, including the small tip we left for the Boys. Money well spent.

Out & About: Dinner w Glenn & The Guys @ Frisson Coffee Bar

Glenn, our old time secondary school mate was back in Malaysia for a spell and wanted to hang around and do dinner. Avian, our very own Mr Glue quickly set up a get-together at Frisson Coffee Bar in Damansara Uptown.

The place had been in operation for several years already as it were yet none of us had tried the place. Thus yesterday evening we all met for din din (emphasis on making a Din, we were raucous!).

The conversation just flowed and it was amazing to be able to just immediately pick up where we left off, as if we didn't have the years of growing between any of us.

Avian, Glenn, Ali, Azlan, David and Me.
Glenn's Beef Striploin in Herby Pasta
David's Grilled Salmon w Vegetable Bolognaise
Azlan's Mac N Cheese, topped with Breaded Chicken & Salted Egg
Avian's Breaded Chicken on Pasta Alfredo (could be Carbonara)
Mine - Glazed Donut Beef Burger w Beef Bacon, Egg n Cheese and a Side Salad
Like a good book, one can always come back to it, familiar yet find something new every time.
