Travels of the Penniless Scholar

Save. Travel. Repeat.
9PM here and I’m still making coffee because I’m THAT excited. Thanks to RoamingBarista’s youtube video, I know how to do this (or at least I felt like I knew how). I did different proportions because I don’t want to have too much caffeine at this hour. 150ml water to 7g of ground coffee. Time to boil was about 4 minutes. As you can see in the photo, I used about 50ml milk and a bit of brown sugar. Now I’m wishing I put less milk. Other than that, taste seems perfect. :)

Guys, I really hate coffee. I also hate the fact that everything is available here, and they’re cheap. Now ready to do this! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fRdCic2f7PI #Berlin #73 #Espressobereiter #Mokapot

Forget everything you need to do. The world outside awaits. Just get up and go. #Berlin #71

The walk to school, and I live in a place where there are not as much plants as other districts. Everywhere in Berlin, there are parks, trees, forests and lakes. And then, one of my friends told me there was a movement a few weeks ago complaining that there’s not enough greens here. Ateng, kailangan mo ng foreign exposure. Punta ka sa Manila ng makita mo ang not enough greens sa isang kapitolyo. #Berlin #70

Sinulat ko lahat ng maling English ng teacher namin sa Writing Academic Paper class… tapos na-paper cut ako. Haha! Digital na ang Karma. Mabilis sumagot. #wagtularan #masamangestudyante #Berlin #70

How a mocca maker works.

I got bored at home, so I took my books out for a walk. :) (At Trödel und Kunstamarkt, Straße des 17. Juni) #Berlin #69
