Dear friends, I hope you are well. I know that more and more countries are implementing isolation, lockdown or quarantine. Well, whatever word is used, the main reason behind all this is the Coronavirus Disease 2019 or COVID-19. As cases increase and became wide-spread last week, WHO officially called the disease a pandemic. “This is the first pandemic caused by a coronavirus,” WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said at a briefing in Geneva.
Have you heard of HELL? No, not the village in Norway and most definitely not the place you’re thinking of. I’m talking about the HELL Energy Drink, a 100% Hungarian-owned brand which was established in 2006.

According to their website, they have HELL Classic, Strong Apple, Strong Red Grape, Strong Cola, Zero Sugar, Zero Strawberry, Strong Focus, Active, Multi+, Ice Cool Pear, Ice Cool Plum, Summer Cool – Strawberry Kiwi, Summer Cool Pineapple Lime as well as some Energy Coffee such as Cappuccino, Slim Latte and Latte.
They say, “Every cloud has a silver lining.” In Haulah Cafe’s case, it literally started with the words silver lining. During the media event organised by Haulah Cafe, we sat down with one of the owners, Ms Rochelle Ramos where she shared their struggles and the inspiration which helped them find the correct path towards Haulah Cafe. Ms Ramos also shared a very personal story about her aunt, who she dearly loves and looks up to. To her, she’s not only an aunt but also a friend and a mentor. But when life took its course, she was left with a dream. So they set out on a journey which at first didn’t work out.
Since you clicked this, I am assuming you love coffee, too! Doesn’t the smell of freshly-brewed coffee in the morning just wake your soul? I know this sounds dramatic for others who aren’t coffee drinkers but this is how I feel. A hot cup of coffee just wakes me up and helps me get to work. You see, my shift always starts at 6AM. Of course, I need to wake an hour and a half earlier to prepare and eat breakfast. So coffee really does wake my soul.
I was on a mission to find Selecta’s Mochi Ku ice cream. Let’s back it up a bit. The Pat kid Inside, one of my fellow bloggers posted a photo of mochi filled with vanilla ice cream on his Instagram account. It looked lovely and being a loyal customer of 7-Eleven, I was surprised I didn’t see that product. But soon I realised that I wasn’t craving for ice cream because of the cold weather. And now that I am, I decided to find this beautiful Selecta Mochi Ku ice cream. There are six 7-Eleven stores near me but only one of them never failed me.
