Hot Soya-Cocofee Drink





It was a Sunny Sunday morning and I was in the mood for a non-fruit breakfast so I decided to make a hot cocoa beverage.  The husband has lactose intolerance, though mild, I cannot risk giving him dairy milk since we had plans to go back to the Singapore Expo to check on the exhibits and do some shopping at the Changi City Point Mall.  Otherwise, I would need to put him on diapers so he wouldn’t need to be running to and fro the John to crap.  A diarhea getting in the way of a relaxing gala day would be a disaster. That's the reason why I used soya milk with added sugar :-). 

By the way, here’s a trivia, “the John” which is another word for toilet originated from the name of the very first inventor of flushing toilet, sir John Harrington, in 1596.  Check out this site out for more details “the flush toilet”  

One other thing, the word crap which refers excrement, feces, stool, or simply poop was derived from the name of Sir Thomas Crapper who had improved the flushing toilet.   Read this trivia Thomas Crapper:  Myth vs Facts 

Why did I go to that crappy thingy??? I didn’t give you the idea that this breakfast beverage tastes like crap, did I? The truth is, it doesn’t. This is lusciously chocolatey and a great energy drink to start a day full of long-tiring walks like we did last Sunday.  Try it.
