Prepare Marrakech Tea in just a minute with Nescafe Dolce Gusto

Image
I love mint flavoured food especially the Chocolate Mint Ice-cream in Baskin Robbin, but what about hot drinks with mint flavor? Recently I've got myself a box of Marrakech Tea and I like the taste immediately when I try it for the first time. You may wanna read my previous post as my girlfriend prepared lovely breakfast for me and it is best paired with this cool-mint Marrakech Tea.
Today I wanna show you how easy it is to prepare a cup of Marrakech Tea for yourself and also your friend who drop by your house. Instead of photo, I will show you a step-by-step-video instead. Played with different lighting during the photoshoot so hope you like it!

Coming Weekend to Macau!! 3D2N can go where?

Ruins of St Paul's Cathedral, Macau
That's right!! I am going to Macau this weekend and it will be a 3 Days 2 Nights Trip (20-22 July 2014). I believe 3 days won't be enough to explore the whole Macau but I will try my best to capture the beautiful side of Macau. Just hope that the weather is good enough with big blue sky and not that hot during our visit. As you see from picture above, Ruins of St Paul's Cathedral is one of the place that I would like to visit and take a #TCSelfie.

Sponsored Video: My Grocery Shopping Will Be Different Now

Image
Hello guys, today I would like to share part of my life as a fulltime blogger and photographer. I've always enjoy the extra freedom that I got by doing this job and I will always go out and buy my groceries from the nearest supermarket. I always have the thought that I must self handpick my fresh fruits and vegetables as I can see it with my own eyes. This is of course to ensure that I am happy with my purchase =)
However, sometimes I do caught up with a few jobs (including photography) at once and I gotta spend the time wisely by spare out some time from my usual routine. This is when I go to online groceries shopping. It is really easy and most importantly I don't need to go out and carry all my stuff back as they will deliver right to my doorstep.
