Coffee For Me, Coffee For The Tree

It just rhymes, that's all. Hahaha

Anyway, been hankering for some overpriced coffee for ages and finally indulged on one (or make that two) on Friday since it rained heavily that evening and we didn't want to get soaked going to our parked car.

So, we lepaked at Starbucks after dinner and a stop at Borders in Bangsar Village. 
A dark caramel latte and French vanilla latte. The boys shared the French Vanilla latte while Mommy had the dark caramel latte all to herself. Hihihi

Small Kucing's Mamarazzi told us some time ago about using coffee grounds for plants and there was a pack of used coffee grounds for anyone to take for free at Starbucks too. Big pack!

The plant that Mamarazzi gave us a few months ago is still thriving so Mommy decided to take the pack home.

Never bothered about all this coffee grounds before as we didn't plant anything prior to getting some plants as a gift. Hehehe
Coffee grounds for our garden.

Well, I don't have a garden, only one plant. ^^
The aroma of the ground coffee sure is invigorating.

And not only us got to enjoy coffee, I hope our plant does too! :-)

But don't use too much!

We use it as an addition to the soil in the plant pot.

I've read that not all plants benefit from coffee grounds and since I am rather stupid about plants, I'll just put a bit and see what happens. Finger cross, my ONE plant will grow bigger. Hahaha

  1. Coincidentally I ordered the same French vanilla latte on last Thursday evening, while waiting for the time of movie - The Book of Life.

    We are not regular to Starbucks, only occasionally pampering ourselves with a cup of expensive coffee.

    By the way, I am signing up for Taiping Run on 21 Dec. This will be my virgin run on road, lina. I sign up for the Female Open 6.5km category. Kekeke! Still do not have enough courage for the Female Veteran 12km.
