Late Night Coffee

I seriously do not understand why coffee is served at late nights, and why people would drink coffee at such ungodly hour. Caffeine is not helping any bit in sleep, yet it is the next best thing in liquid consumption after alcohol that would popularly be opted. Is there any kick in coffee? For me, I personally love coffee in any form, from the kopitiam's Kopi Peng to Latte or Flat White from Starbucks or Dome.

Well, imagine the day to be Friday, the last day of work/uni, being overly weary and stressed continuously for days and everything just does not seem to go to the right directions. A cup of coffee for late night is just the right solution to wind back and chill with the arousing aroma and soothing texture tingling the senses. With the right company of friends, coffee provides more than just the warmth for cold winter nights.

Unfortunately in Perth, most local cafes would close down as early as before midnight. Talking about night life in Perth, it is truly sad. Nevertheless, there are places that open for 24 hours, places that serve good coffee with the suitable environment just for basically every occasion or just hanging out. One of them, the one that people would frequent, is Oriel, in Subiaco.

Right after the OCF public meet, me and some fellow OCF-ers went to Oriel for a drink.

The beauties...

I had my usual order, Latte. Nothing fancy, just plain coffee with milk, and I would chuck in plentiful amount of sugar. I do not know why, but lately I have been crazy about sweet stuff. The sweeter the better.

It is weird though, many people there are actually from Currie Hall, the residential college I once lived in back in my very first few semesters in Perth. During my time there I have made many new friends with people coming from different parts of the world, and some have become really good friends. I have left that place for good for a long time, and I have come to realise that my older connections in the hall are slowly but surely dying out. People come and go, that's an acceptable fact of life. It is interesting to find myself still mingling around with different sets of people, but still, from Currie Hall, though I no longer stay there.

Hot coffee for cold weather. People around you to "talk cock" with.

I'd say, Friday night well spent !!
