Being alone does not mean that you are lonely. Likewise, you don't have to be alone to feel lonely. It's a state of mind. After years of denial of being alone, I have started to enjoy the alone time, the private thinking time. Living in a city with such fast pace, Instagramming now, and whatsapping the next second, then someone sent you that snapchat you have to screenshoot it, there's no way you are truly reflecting on yourself. Being a blogger, you might think I am a person living in social medias. But quite the opposite, I really enjoy my time without data or wifi, just me and the music - a ME time.
So the following are 3 quiet and private cafes for ME times. Enjoy.
Cafes / restaurants in industrial buildings are quite common nowadays. And this, is for sure a gem. What attracts me at the first place is its being a furniture warehouse slash cafe. It's spacious, it's simple and very quiet. Nothing's more enjoyable than sipping their coffee while imagining my own dream house.
A massive closet of course, a king size bed, that designer chair... Oh not gonna miss the the pot of cactus out.

# No Milkshake No Life
No Milkshake No Life - literally an extract of my life. I love milkshake. I simply cannot resist ordering milkshakes every time they appear on the menus even though I always regret afterwards for being too full. You know what I mean. So, what can I say more? Kiss the milkshake to find out.
Recommendation: Ovaltine Milkshake, Oreo Milkshake
Address: Shop A, G/F, 31-37 Hill Road, Shek Tong Tsui, Western District 西環石塘咀山道31-37號地下A舖
# Storeroom No3
Imagine being in that beach party, everyone is enjoying themselves while you suddenly spot a quiet elegant girl in a floppy hat who sits at the corner reading a book. She's called Storeroom No3. Locating at the heart of the city, Storeroom No 3 seems to create that big contrast with its character. So quiet, so elegant and so relaxing.
They don't have many food choices and - not a surprise - most of the food are warm, not hot. But this simply matches perfectly with its character. Not so hot but not too cold - something in between.
I have only realised that they will be closing in a week. What a shame. So for sure give it a go before the girl leaves the beach party.
Address: 3/F-4/F, 42-44 Sai Yeung Choi Street South, Mong Kok 旺角西洋菜南街42-44號3-4樓
Love being alone may be a signal of aging, but I am definitely enjoying it. I am not saying I don't like my friends, I love them and I enjoy their accompany. Yet, a ME time is always necessary occasionally so that you can think and - more importantly - reflect.
