Hiya lovelies? Today I'll be reblogging something I did in May 2014. The truth is I was googling something randomly when this post came up and I was like ok baby girl why not bring back the post *puppy eyes*.
I hate bread but in my house, its one staple but most times I skip it and just drink my milk because I hate tea too, by tea I mean Lipton and not Milo oh! Milo is just a chocolate drink. So when I have to take bread and tea, I like to cut my bread into pieces and put inside my teacup for it to soak well. Well my mum says its bad habit but I’ve not had course to drink tea in public so as is my usual practise, I visited university of Google and I saw various opinion.
Some feel it’s bad table manner but hey, is there a law that says I shouldn’t soak my bread in my tea? The time I will use to chew my bread and drink tea, I’ll just save half of it by soaking my bread *grinning*
Come on, don’t Europeans dunk too? Do we even have to follow everything the colonial masters did hook, line and sinker?
I even read on nairaland that the standard is to bite off the bread, chew it and sip the tea from the teacup. Duuh . The truth is bad habit is relative. Who set the standard on how to drink tea?
Ok, let’s even define dunking. Wikipedia defines dunking as ‘dunking, usually indicates a submersion of biscuit, bread, buttered toast, cake or donought into a beverage, especially tea, coffee or hot or cold milk’. Dunking releases more flavour from confections by dissolving the sugars, while also softening their texture. You dey read am so?
Whether I dip tea in bread, or bread in tea, the koko is that it’s my tummy it ends up.
In other news, the corper's lodge in Tambuwal LGA was burnt down by political thugs, I seriously do not know what this country is turning to. I was posted to the north and I accepted it in good faith and see how we are being treated?
My heart goes out to fellow corps members who lost everything in that unfortunate incidence. Incidentally, the speaker of the house of Representatives is from tambuwal and I'm yet to hear of any relief package put in place.
These are sad times.
