Black Ivory Coffee – The World’s Most Expensive Coffee

I’m a coffee addict but if you ask me whether I’m going to drink this, I’m really not sure. There are many people, however, that will go a long distance in their quest for the best coffee ever.

Lose Your Head And You’ll Lose Your Game Too

My son asked me during the just concluded Sultan Of Johor Cup ‘Which team is the best?‘. I had no hesitation to say that Pakistan has the best team among the six that competed in the tournament. I gave the same verdict during the Asia Cup last month but on both occasions I told my boy that they will not win it. It is quite confusing for my boy to understand but in sport, the best team does not necessarily win. Otherwise, we will just hand over the trophy to the team that we think is the best and no need to go through all the trouble of running the event.

The facility also offers tours for tourists to see the pandas face-to-face, but booking must be made in advance.  Raising a panda is an expensive business therefore  it’s understandable that the facility needs lots of help and funding to save these pandas from extinction. Continue reading…
