Latte Art Workshop @ KOMMUNE (Part1)

Was invited over to KOMMUNE for a Latte Art Workshop and Food Tasting together with other bloggers. On this day I learned how espresso was prepared, the different methods of creating latte art and the best part was I got on hands on creating my own espresso.
Espresso - Coffee brewed by forcing a small amount of nearly boiling water under pressure through finely ground coffee beans.

Authentic espresso preparation starts by freshly grinding beans into the portafilter then do a hard knock

Using the finger, slowly even out the finely grounded coffee beans into a concave shape

With the body force, compress the finely grounded coffee into a puck 

Twist and turn then lift the cap up, with enough force pressed the puck will not fall out even if you over turn it

By keeping a close watch to the time we set the timer to 20 second and let the espresso flow out through the portafilter with hot water (88°C - 93°C) after mounting it onto the coffee machine

Later pour some milk into a milk jug until the required level 

Then create steamed/foam milk using the coffee machine
Latte Art - refers to creative patterns made from the velvety milk foam skillfully poured into a rich crema-crowned espresso coffee. It can be created by three main method: Free-Pouring, Needle Etching and Coffee/Latte art stencils.
For Free-Pouring: Pour the steamed/foamed milk into the espresso coffee at the same time creating a design out of it

For Needle Etching: We started off by creating design

For Needle Etching: Then draw/etch the espresso coffee throughout the top layer of the milk foam

Here is the final out-come:

Scoot Cabin Crew Interview (UPDATED)

This post has been sitting in my draft for awhile and now it's finally time to publish it. Being a cabin crew aka air stewardess is a dream job for most of the girls and it may also attract eyes of envy, furthermore cabin crew get to enjoy in different country each time after work(that's other people mindset), however most people need to understand that the job is not as luxurious as it seems and cabin crew will also be sacrificing their family time for work. There was this day when I have finally graduated from ITE and found out that Scoot is recruiting cause I am constantly checking out their website hehe so I decided to send in my application. One reason why I choose Scoot is because it is a new airline and the people there all share a common characteristic which is "Scootitude" that makes them so fun-loving. Image credit: Hpility
