Somehow I feel that a fifth reason is missing and it will be the fact that coffee has a wonderful aroma.
I’m in a long distance relationship with a lovely girl living in Tokyo. We don’t get to meet up often, but when we do, we spend a lot of time exploring cafes in Tokyo and Singapore.
I would hold her hand and play with her fingers as we sip our coffee. A wonderful aroma seems to suspend amidst the hustle and bustle, one that is comforting and exciting altogether.
I can’t tell whether the lovely aroma pervading the air is the scent of blooming coffee or blossoming hearts but it sure is wonderful. Just as it feels wonderful knowing that you have found the one whom you can share everything with: your thoughts, hopes and dreams. Not to forget coffee, of course.
We had to postpone our Christmas meet up in Tokyo because of unforeseen circumstances (read about it here). As you are reading this, we are planning a Tokyo coffee trail. We are keeping our fingers crossed, hoping that the trip will happen smoothly this time. Because somehow coffee seems more awesome when we are together.
