A year ago, my first purchase in the capital was the coffee mug. A year later at a new location, my first purchase is still a coffee mug, except this time it's a coffee mug cum french press for a modest sum of RMB 49 (SGD 9.80)
Saves me the hassle of having to wash two things (mug + french press) instead of just one.
So anyway, I had my first brew. Need to learn how to drink hot beverage from a small opening (read: Hot!). I was never good at drinking coffee with a straw (plastic bag coffee) to begin with and this tiny opening at the top of the thermal mug isn't any good either.
