That Old Familiar Taste 旧旧的味道 ...


咖啡的甜味与苦味
kā fēi de tián wèi yú kǔ wèi
my familiar sweet and bitter taste of bitter
...
An Old Coffee shop still brewing the same old taste
for as long as I know, 
but the market where it is located at 
will be torn down soon 
to make way for "progress"
...
I find time to take a sip of this old taste
before this familiar taste 
is gone forever
...

It's always a pity when old things disssapear...not every time they are replaced by better ones...anyhow, it's a feeling of nostalgia...

Sad that such history and tradition is moved out of the way for progress.

Any chance they'll build another coffee shop? It won't be the same but it could be good! Fabulous images Wong.
