Sometimes it is just better to enjoy stuff instead of being good with said stuff

#shareyourkape #catsandcoffee

I recently had some time to try raising my rank in Mobile Legends again. Previously, the highest I was able to get was Legend V and that was about 2 years ago. I only had time to play when I had pockets of break time during work and while on my long commutes to and from the office. Also, playing too long with strangers with the chat on is not advisable – there’s trash talk and then there’s Mobile Legends’ trash talk, which is a whole other animal.

My (unqualified) thoughts about the Aeropress

#shareyourkape #aeropressph #aeropressreview #shareyourkapeunqualifiedthoughts

Not breaking new ground with this one, I’m sure. The Aeropress has been around for a long time and has kind of a cult following – it has its own world’s championships and movie for heaven’s sake. There are many ways to make coffee with it and it can even make something near to espresso. There are several reviews and brew guides with the Aeropress as a subject, mostly by people who actually know what they’re doing, but I have nothing else to write about and have been using my Aeropress exclusively as of late so it seemed fitting.

Summer Kape

#summerkape #cocotosestate #shareyourkape

Those following me on Instagram (@shareyourkape) probably have seen that I was a tad bit too eager to pull the trigger on buying home brewing equipment, not to mention buying coffee beans frequently. Now that I’m working from home, I can’t rely on Baristas to prepare me good coffee anymore due to lockdown and the need to follow social distancing protocols. I also have more time to learn how to make coffee at home, thus I have no more excuses. So although I started the lockdown drinking instant coffee, I knew it wouldn’t be sustainable (and shouldn’t be). But here’s the thing: I’ve been doing this during one of the harshest summers  in the Philippines that I can remember, and I’m still drinking hot coffee – and I think it helps.
