The Best Friend , Coffee , Games & Me

You know when they say communication brings people closer together, I don't think it's happening nowadays. The problem with the world today. IF You Ever Noticed, or have you ever notice a group of friends or family sitting on a table together without actual interactions, everyone is just too busy playing with their gadgets. With the advanced technology in communication devices, everyone is just too into their Blackberries and iPhones or smart phones. Sad right, how people no longer have a decent meal together with laughter and good conversations.

Back to my post, me and my bestest friend in the whole wide world (that's how much I adore and love her) hang out at this nice cozy little café in a local Mall in Penang. Although the coffee they serve is just average for my liking, I love how they have all this board games and books. We had the best time catching up with each other's busy lives, playing Scrabble & Jenga. It's just so much fun and love. So here I will share some photos with you.

Board games are fun, people should play it more often. The first board game I have ever owned was a set of Monopoly my dad bought me when I was  8 when he came back to visit me and my sisters..

 What’s your all time fav board game ?

Cutest Song ever , good Indonesian music :)

Looks like a funny day!
Some weeks ago I had a gaming evening with friends and we played board games the whole night. It was so much fun! I love Monopoly but I'm really bad at it. I'm not good with money :D
A lot of my friends have an Iphone and you are so right in saying that a normal conversation seems to be impossible while everyone plays with his smartphone. Checking mails, facebook or to look something up in Google kills every conversation or discussion.

good friends are good for the soul!!!! I'm so glad you and your best friend had such a fabulous time! Also I am so with you technology makes things more complicated when it comes to relationships!

Bad Taste Toast said...

Aw this looks like some wonderful bonding time with your friend! :) I love these game cafés, we have a few here too. My favourites definitely are Scrabble and Trivial Pursuit!

I know what you mean; it seems like no one has time to get off there phones LOL.
But I’m glad that my family loves to interact with each other during dinner, I will never resent that. It’s a beautiful thing to be able to talk and laugh with each other; some people don’t know what there missing.

I just love the picture you have in this post, you truly look like you having the best time, it brings a smile to my face.
I find it unfortunate there aren’t more cafés that carry fun little games like that.
Jenga is my favorite game; I seriously get competitive when it comes to Jenga LOL

Sarah said...

I really really agree with what you're saying!
Last year on New Year's Eve I also played some fun games with my siblings! I think it's important to spend time with the family!

And I really love scrabble... even i f I've never played it.. hehe. But it's on my to-do-list! ;)

My favorite game is parcheesi!

I hope you have a nice day! :)
xx, Sarah
