When technology “ruin” your day 😉

Part of the fun of ordering drinks at Starbucks was to see what kind of way they would come up to spell your name (Silly & Silli)…. or occasionally blow up your cover, twice actually 😉

You try to stay incognito and the barista at Starbucks recognizes you.

For the side story…. when I moved to the States in 1990 people had a hard time with my name, they were like Saline? Sailing? Selena?… then the Titanic & Celine Dion happened and the narrative started to change “oh like Celine Dion” so it became my catch phrase: “Celine like Celine Dion but while I speak French like her, I don’t sing so well”. People always remember my name…. however doesn’t always work on the youngest generations 😂

On this case the barista stole my line when I told him my name 🤷‍♀️

Very productive 1st day back at my “it’s my turn to be on vacation” workplace 😉

Finally decided to build one of the two “Starbucks Mini Collectible Store – Singapore Exclusive” Christmas present I received. I then realized there are actually 3 models and now I feel like I got short changed.
On a side note one cannot have big fingers and be clumsy.

Sometimes the barista makes your day a little brighter. She almost knew how to spell my name. She even said like Celine Dion (hey that’s MY line!)

Overheard at Starbucks I’m not rich enough to pay for coffee that’s why I get them sponsored (I’m guessing by sponsored she mean paid for)

Ironically my tall cappuccino was also sponsored by my coffee mate aka hubby

Don’t you go to Starbucks with you pet parrot?

Apparently my name doesn’t translate well. After Silly in Kuala Lumpur, I’m Silli in Singapore 😉
