We were looking around for coffee cups to try out our new Nespresso and remembered these kopitiam cups which I bought years ago but had rarely used.
I like these cups with the floral (hibiscus, I think) motifs printed on them. I had a college classmate who enjoyed drinking his hot coffee from the saucers that came with these cups. So I bought him a box of 6 cups to take along to England – where he was going to pursue his undergraduate education. And that was also when I bought a box for myself.
Some years back, I had a Caucasian approach me at a hawker centre, asking me where he could buy these cups. I directed him to a hardware shop nearby and I hoped he found what he wanted.
Maybe we don’t have to go out and buy new coffee cups. These ones will do fine.
