Food: Kopi (Coffee)

I know I have written about kopi (the Malay word for coffee) previously, but I wanted to highlight it here. Coffeeshops provide very cheap coffee, usually about one Sing dollar. The coffee is very strong and very good, true to the Turkish proverb about coffee (I'll leave you to find it). I am pretty sure, however, that it isn't all that healthy for you. Not only is the coffee served normally with sweetened condensed milk or a full dose of sugar, the beans are actually roasted in butter before brewed. Heavenly!

Turkish Proverb "Coffee should be black as hell, strong as death, and as sweet as love."

You do like to eat, don't you. Mix in a salad now and then.
