About this blog
Life often gives me surprises in some of the most unexpected ways. Say, the closest encounter with wild echidnas during a bushwalk to discovering a new café in your neighbourhood. Or getting amused by conspiracy theories from a conversation originally about actor Jim Carrey with friends at a casual café gathering, to being inspired by a sentence out of a library book as I sip coffee out of my old and only mug at home. You can say these are the trivia of any healthy adult person’s everyday life that is as significant as hashtags like “ootd” or “like4like.” But I happen to find the fun out of the mundane.
This is what this blog will be about: the interesting life revolving around our interesting contributors. We will write about ourselves, some may interest you, some may (hopefully) inspire you and some may give you a chuckle or two while some may be just related to you. And, yes, something about coffee here and there because coffee is life. And if you are reading this, you know that is true. This includes the coffee culture in Australia from our perspectives and some cool coffee brewing methods.
As for now, you may wonder “whose stories are we reading about?” so please allow me to introduce you to Sheila and Sabrina.
About the contributors
Sheila, a.k.a. my (seemingly un-) humble self, is a film enthusiast, caffeine addict, animal lover who’s currently fostering a seven-legged house spider and keeping four mice as pets, and maybe a soon-to-be conspiracy theories believer. Some say I have the “too much” gene but don’t we all? That being said, you’ll expect to see me get carried away and overexcited when I write about films, dogs, life, or simply…everything. Currently resides in Hobart, Tasmania.
Sabrina, a.k.a. the big sister, a mum of two cutest kids and Dr Lin, is a coffee lover who loves to explore some of the best cafes and patisseries in Melbourne, Victoria. She is also passionate about food recipes and feeding the household to their greatest contentment. Having extensive background in early childhood education, she may be sharing some lovely stories and experiences with kids. Her love for home decors and products may also be a feature in them. I mean, coffee, food and story time, what makes a better read than that?
“Double Wood” Explained
“林” is a traditional Chinese character whose literal meaning translates to “the woods” in English. Pronounced “Lin”, it is also a common Chinese surname across Chinese-speaking regions around the world. What a happy coincidence that it is also the family surname of sisters Sabrina and Sheila. In formation, this character has two “木” (tree, wood), thus – Double Wood.
