You cook but why won’t you make coffee?

#shareyourkape #quarantinecoffee #covid19

I would not be surprised if online content of cooking anything are crushing views right now due to the Enhanced Community Quarantine (Phillippine Lockdown) caused by Covid-19. We’re in it for a more than a month now and a lot of people are either searching for new recipes or are trying to recreate some of their favorite meals from restaurants in their own homes.

Am I rich because I coffee? No. Am I successful because I coffee? Absolutely!

Everyone has their own definition of success. Most of these involve money. Everyone needs money. Money makes our lives comfortable; Money enables us to enjoy the things we love; Money makes the world go round.  “I’m successful because I have an iPhone 11 Pro Max”; “I’m successful because I drive an SUV” (or a luxury car but SUV is more relatable); “I’m successful because I can travel wherever I want” – you get the point.

Gridiron Kape

It’s been two days since Kobe Bryant’s sudden death, tragically also involving his 13 year old daughter Gianna ‘Mambacita’, and here I am writing something connected to a Sport entirely different from Basketball: American Football. Specifically, arguably the most dominant figure in the NFL for the past two decades: Thomas Edward Patrick Brady Jr. or simply Tom Brady.

This is just an excuse to write about Apple’s The Morning Show but it’s my blog anyway so whatever

If you’re following me on Instagram you would have seen me praising almost every new episode of “The Morning Show” (which shall be referred to as TMS moving forward) in my stories. Even when critics were deriding the first three episodes (they were all released at the same time), I was already a fan. And when they started to praise every new one released after that, I couldn’t help but think “I told you so!” but also be happy it’s getting the positive recognition it deserves.
