Our most excellent host for our holiday in Malaysia, Manny, is here in Australia now. I asked if he had worked out how much we owe him as he paid for many things when we were there. He hadn't. I gave him $200 and told him to work out how much more we need to pay him. We had a nice meal at Crown with him earlier in the week, with his very old Australian ex priest 'partner'.
Tomorrow we are 'coffee hopping' with Manny. Coffee and tea and all things to with them are his business. There is some big bash at Jeff's Shed that he is involved with and while I don't know why, we won't actually have to pay for our coffee tomorrow as we go to various St Kilda cafes for coffee hopping.
I am not used to more than one cup of proper coffee a day, but I think I might do a latte (milk lining for the stomach), then a long black, then a short black. Manny tells us that no offence will be taken if we do not drink the whole cup.
Manny is staying with the ex priest not too far away. I suggested he get the Dandenong Road tram and we will meet him at St Kilda Junction to go coffee hopping. I could see I said something wrong. R picked it up. He wants to go by car. Car? In St Kilda? Not my first choice, but R was right and we are picking Manny up in Armadale with the car and we will have to find parking spaces, probably pay spaces. Not my first choice, but whatever Manny likes. He went out of his way so much for us in Malaysia, how could I deny him travel in a car instead of a tram.
