gaga over tea

One tuna pan de sal and a cup of milk tea help make my mornings complete. I end my shift tired and sleepy and whenever I arrive home, I don't feel tired and sleepy at all. That's why I still have time to blog (like what I'm doing now!) My brother started this tea thingie at home. He used to mix tea with powdered lemonade and put some ice in it. It's delicious actually. I first got a taste of milk tea when I bought one plastic bottle in 7-11. I can't even read the label because it was in Chinese, but I love it! Then I tasted one in Easy Way. Then a few weeks ago, I tasted Chowking's new milk tea, Nai Cha (iced drink with tea extract, milk, caramel syrup and tea-flavored jelly cubes in it) and I love it! Orgasmic!!! Now, I include a box of Lipton teabags every time I buy groceries. Been drinking brisk (so I won't have trouble sleeping) tea with milk every morning now and I can feel my body cleansing itself, which means more trips to the comfort room for me. Haha! But that's fine. What I lack in exercise I can *try* to make up for the food I eat. I know exercise is very important, as a physical therapist (albeit non-practicing) I should know that. But hey, I have a sedentary lifestyle and I don't know when I will change that (yet). Oh yeah, I'd still be a junkie (junk-food lover), but I'll be more careful now with what I eat.


Sleep-- now that's one thing I need but lack every work day. I just oversleep during the weekends. I'd rather stay up after work than sleep the whole day and wake up and go back to work again. I don't want that routine. Yaiks! I have to remind myself to sleep at least 30 minutes earlier than usual today because I have my typing certification tonight. I have to type at least 60 net words per minute with at least 90% accuracy. Wish me luck! *cross fingers*

Yung Nai Cha, di ko alam eh. Yung home-made milk tea ko 1 cup of hot tea, siguro mga 3-5 minutes immersed yung tea bag. Tapos 1 tbsp powdered milk. Sabi ng bro ko mas masarap pag evap. Then half a tbsp washed sugar. Pwede mong lagyan ng sweetener instead. :)

Chai? Nope. Where can I buy that? :)

Try Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf. Their Chai is great! :)
