“What do you want?”
“Just coffee. Black – like my soul.”
— Cassandra Clare


Enjoying my afternoon cuppa at Basilur Tea on Sinsa-Dong’s Garosugil. On display within the 3-storeyed building are tins and tins of tea leaves and related tea spices that tickled my olfactory senses. Basilur does premium tea exports from Sri Lanka to the rest of the world. They also do make a mean cuppa latte. The building’s really grand and beautiful, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the main garosugil street. Good to note that it’s also not too quiet for people-watching. Make a right turn when you see Deux Cremes or Mug for Rabbit and you won’t miss it.

"Do you see the story? Do you see anything?... It seems to me I am trying to tell you a dream - making a vain attempt, because no relation of a dream can convey the dream sensation... No, it is impossible; it is impossible to convey the life-sensation of any given epoch of one's existence - that which makes its truth, its meaning - its subtle and penetrating essence. It is impossible. We live, as we dream - alone." Marlow in Heart of Darkness, Joseph Conrad.
