In my previous job, I often had to travel. One of the most exotic places I’ve had the privilege of spending a few days was a little remote village at Myanmar by the name of Kanbauk.

Kanbauk is a very remote town at south western side of Myanmar, bordering Thailand. The place is accessible pretty much only by chartered flight, or you could drive there in about 12 hours.

There are no tar roads, no electricity during the day, and the wooden shop coffee house in the picture above was the most happening hangout place in 2007.

I suspect things hasn’t changed since.

We stayed at a gas processing facility just minutes away from the village, so naturally the most happening coffee house became one of our must-tour spots.

Then again, it wasn’t like there was a lot to do in a place where some workers earn only US $1 for a hard day’s work.

One of the most things I always remember about Myanmar was their coffee drinking culture. The Burmese don’t brew their own coffee, everywhere I went, coffee meant 3 in 1 sachets. Tea, however, were prepared in the more traditional way.

Super 3 in 1 Coffee at Kanbauk, Myanmar!

As I dug back the photos from over 3 years back for the purpose of this advertorial, look at what I found – Coffeemix 3 in 1! That was exactly what we were served for US $0.25 or so back at the happening coffee shop in Kanbauk. Talk about coincidence. 😀

Even though I didn’t I couldn’t recall the brand of the coffee then, I remembered it to be full of aroma and had a good blend of creamer, sugar, and coffee. The picture now told me it was the Super Regular 3 in 1 Coffeemix.

Writing this made me want to have a cup of coffee now. Other than the Super Regular, there’re also Super Rich, and Super Regular (Reduced Sugar) 3 in 1 coffee, all selling at RM 8.50 per 25 sachets right here in Malaysia.
