“pay-what-you-like” cafe in London

Breakfast is often regarded as the most important meal of the day. It is also the first meal of the day. However not everyone can afford breakfast let alone a hearty nutritious one.

With the help of very generous people, cafes that operate as non profit or “pay-what-you-like” are emerging in cities across the world.

For example this cafe in London. In addition to putting an important meal on the table for those who cannot afford, it also allows people to see how everyday charity can help others in need.

If you’re in London why not drop by?

Bubble tea…pearls

Confession🤫 it’s the pearls in the bubble tea that I’m drawn to. The chewy, gnawing of the tapioca pearls 珠珠. They call these chewy spring-y toppings “QQ” in Taiwan. Some brands give a small price adjustment if you bring your own tumbler. It’s also environmental friendly.

According to various sources, a typical 500ml milk tea with tapioca pearls consists of 325 calories. A healthy snack has 150 to 300 calories. So opt for no or less sugar!

Which is your favorite bubble tea?
