Post-graduation, the S-trio has undergone metamorphosis, yielding Health, Interpersonal Relations, and Financial Stability as its final form.
- Health encompasses both physical and mental well-being, be it concerns over insomnia or the simple act of
engaging in everyday joys (such as fangirling).
- Interpersonal Relations takes into account family matters, friends, and the general presence of a social circle. These intangible ties are often neglected when the latter grows dire.
- The most self-explanatory of them all, Financial Stability is a gauge of survival capability - the distinction between struggling for fundamental means and cruising comfortably through 401 congestion.
Reluctantly inching into Monday, I saw blue skies, a Matcha Latte, and the slow-but-steady advancement of CIBC Square.
Fancy socks are commonly incorporated into my closet to offset my otherwise monochromatic (and allegedly monotonous) ensembles.
The coffeeshop in question was not so eye-catching, thus we zipped by the first time even with the assistance of Google Maps.
Dine-in accommodations were limited: a lone booth, a single communal table, and a handful of bar seats by the window was the extent of seating choices. That said, traffic volumes were quite low during our weekday afternoon visit, ensuring that Wi-Fi connection would remain speedy and uninterrupted.
The Flat White with vanilla syrup was informed to contain very smooth espresso (Barocco?), hence earning the remark of "really good". My pick was, frankly, not so stellar and rather chunky and disappointing. The original Beet Tahini formula was not caffeinated, however the owner/barista was quick to recommend adding a shot for an additional seventy cents.
All in all, it was a considerably pricey beverage given the geographic coordinates and surrounding income demographic.
Several intriguing baked goods were observed to grace the countertop: Almond Flour Brownies, scones, and Christmas Tree Pocky sticks. Hippie items like reusable metal straws were also available for sale. A water refill station was spotted by the bathroom, which was left unvisited on this journey.
The class felt a tad rushed, considering the series of unfamiliar steps (like the groovy Shamrock) embedded in the latter half. To many, the incompetence of seamless execution could be perceived as a stepping stone in the journey of urban dance, however, being the logical human that I am, imperfection is always difficult to embrace.
