My church service today was a rather different one! Slow moving songs, mixed of traditional hymns and contemporary worship songs. Somehow I love the mixed of slow moving songs and the overall cathedral atmosphere…. It gives a very quiet and peaceful feeling…absence of the majestic pipe organ and the great choir…just something simple…piano and the voices! I am thankful for such a service today! Sometimes God speaks to us through soft, moving songs.
As usual, my church service always doesn’t ends with the benediction! For me, I would usually spend an hour or so of alone time at the nearest Starbucks! I guess sometimes you just need to slow down and let time catch up with us! So often we are always catching up with time and always grumbling of no time or so little time. The way to deal with this is really to slow down and let time catch up with us! This time round I even ordered things out of my norm! I gave up my usual grande latte and went for the plain and simple Cafe Americano or simply said… Black coffee or kopi O! Normally I would order pastries and stuff … This time just sandwich! And of course I need to feed my mind too… with Kinfolk! I love this easy-reading magazine! It’s really a good read for cafe hoppers like myself!
I took sometimes to listen to my own voice amidst all the jazzy music and a group of post-grads discussing about their assignment! Arghhhhh …. Seems like there must be work some how existing in cafe! You can imagine what a contrast I am from them… They reading thick and heavy research books and me… Kinfolk! Come on… It’s a Sunday…. Everyone deserves to be lazy!
Well… Time to sip the world away with my Cafe Americano… See you guys soon with my fourth cafe in Bangkok soon! Have a great Summer Day!
