Masala Milk

Masala Milk 04

I used to be cinnamon girl, but the last few months I’m really into cardamom. It doesn’t mean I don’t like cinnamon anymore but I just don’t think about it on daily basis and start to craving more cardamom taste on my food, dessert or even on my drink.

I like to try something new and make an experiment for breakfast. When others are busy thinking about what clothes to wear for tomorrow, I was busy thinking about what should I eat for breakfast. I like to enjoy my breakfast with warm drink like coffee, tea, cappucino or chai tea. Although I’m not really like milk but had too much caffeine, and I decide it had to be milk this week.
