How to make a cup of nescafe?

My eyelids are heavy.....really heavy...
don't know why because I slept early yesterday......well 1.30am is early to me anyway
I can't concentrate on my budget planning excel spreadsheet as my eyes are going into hibernate mode soon....

I think i'm gonna make myself a mug of nescafe.
Speaking of which, I'd really like to create this post as a handy guide to those princesses out there who can't make a cup of drinkable nescafe. *rolls eyes*

You see, sometime ago we hired a freshgrad as our trainee. She was a typical princess.....don't know anything domestic kinda princess. We were having some guests over for a product training session and as usual we need to make some coffee. Usually we'll get the receptionist to do that but at times, i don't mind making coffee and just volunteerily do it. However since I had this new girl and she doesnt have much work to do, I told her to make coffee for the guests.

BIG MISTAKE!!!! gosh!! Ms.Princess totally stirred up a whirlwind in the pantry!!! She tried to make the coffee....ended up TOO BITTER untill can choke so it was a failure but luckily she got 1 of our other colleague to test first!! haah.....poor fella....then slowly almost half the office ppl were in the pantry helping her MAKE COFFEE!? Can u immagine that?!! Aiyooooh....if the boss find out about this my head is gonna be on the chopping board man. So highly unproductive to get all the professionals make coffee right?! haha...
Then I pulled out the ultimate damange control mechanism...... 3-in-1 Nescafe!!! kekeke...shove a couple of packets to her and said...use this. *phewww...wipe sweat frm forehead*

Ya see, some people REALLY don't know how to make a decent cup of coffee loh.....and This wasn't the first time i've experience something like that. There was once we had a Boy intern many years ago that one..... And he came over to my cubicle and asked me....."Fashionasia, how to make coffee ah?" "Why is my coffee so bitter?"
I can't remember what I did but i think I helped him with that too.

Actually making nescafe is very easy only. Nothing fancy, but the only thing is that one must know that making a cup of nescafe and making a cup of milo is totally different!!! The proportions is different. I realized that their coffee taste extremely bitter because they're used to making milo and they thought that it is the same with coffee and scoop a huge spoonful of coffee or two....which is....very-the-yikes!!!

I normally make mine with the agak-agak method but I like the full-proof way which is the 1-2-3 method.
1-2-3?? Yup......1-2-3

Just remember the sequence
1 teaspoon of nescafe
2 teaspoon of sugar
3 teaspoon of coffeemate(or whatever brand of creamer)

Easy right?? Thats how you make a cup of nescafe. Just follow the proportions like that. If your cup is bigger, adjust accordingly. Hope this helps the prince&princesses out there! If all else fails, buy 3-in-1 instant pack. Very cheap oni....

I make my nescafe without sugar & I don't use coffeemate or creamer either. I only use fresh milk. :)

Speaking of coffee, I don't really like the 3-in-1 mixtures. By the time I get to the end of the cup, I'd feel so overwhelmed with the taste.

I prefer my coffee, black with sugar. No pre-packaged mixtures please. Thanks lol :P

Eve: Concentration is part of it.
Start drawing from just exactly near ur eye lit of ur eyelash from tis end to tat end,if ur using pencil liner it better.. but its better to be lil oily.. otherwise it will be no gud for ur eyes!! kekekekeke!!!!
Important note: Never draw ur liner to thick.... it has to be the thiners line ever... n to make a cat eye... put ur pencil a lil further b4 the end. happy trying n god bless u all... cheers gorgie!!
