Phy Follows Mr Bean’s Foot Steps

Not to the nuthouse. Nope. I am following Mr Bean’s way of drinking coffee only in my case, I do it with 3-in-1 Milo and minus the hot water. Oh, and I don’t look as demented as he does while doing it.

Who doesn't know this guy?

Anyone who’s watched Mr Bean movies would know what I’m talking about. For those who don’t, well, basically it’s like using your mouth as a cup and putting anything you need to make a beverage in it then pouring in hot water (only to be done by Mr Bean. Kids, don’t try THAT at home).

I still remember how I started doing this. It was back in 2003 when I was sitting for my SPM and just as I was about to leave my room to the exam hall I remembered that I hadn’t taken my breakfast. 

Not wanting to be stuck in the exam hall with a rumbling stomac  half-way during the exam, I looked around my room but there was nothing that could be eaten on the spot like biscuits, etc. Even Maggi’s 3 minute claim was too long to wait. Suddenly I spotted a green colored packet.

 Iconic dark green packaging..

Desperate, I gingerly tore it open and poured a bit of the content into my mouth.   Hm... I thought. Not bad.. Not bad at all. I finished the whole packet and did the same to a 2nd packet  for good measure.

Needles to say those 2 packet of 3-in-1 Milo helped me throughout the examination and although I don’t remember what subject it was (I believe it was Physics) I did pretty well. Lol...

Now I just down a sachet of Milo 3-in-1 for fun. Or when I’m desperately hungry yet still too lazy to switch on the electric kettle. Or when there’s no water and I want to drink Milo anyway like today.   Funny thing with today is, it was only after I did a Mr Bean with my Milo then the water supply became available... Oh well..

So tell me, have you ever done a Mr Bean before?

Yup, me too.. Some people don't like it though. They say it makes them sleepy. Thank God I do not have that unfortunate affliction.. Lol...
