Brewing for something better in life. Chill. Don?t you think it is nice to catch up with friends in endless talks about life and everything else over a cup of coffee? It?s one of the things I like doing but since we?re all busy creatures, sometimes there?s a miniscule chance to sit down, relax and share what we have in mind. Life nowadays has been more like a coffee-to-go. Tasty it is but fast and fleeting. This is why I gave birth to this blog. I started blogging in 2009 and since then, I never looked back. By late 2011, I made a big change. My blog moved to a better space carrying a brand new name. I hope I can transform this blog into more than a personal space of mine where not only I share my own stories and interests, but also initiate ideas and create projects in pursuit of learning and making a difference. Change is good! So let?s see how it goes. Why coffeechat with perpie? Obviously, I love coffee. It?s hard to imagine I go through the day without a cup. Admittedly I am an information junkie. Sharing and blogging about all the topics that interest me give me the fix. I must have been a curator in my previous life! On one fine indian summer day, there?s a name I wanted to make a comeback. It?s Perpie! The sharing starts here.

It explores destinations in a way that real-life stories unfold, often with humourous effect! Whether in a new city or at home, adventure is found in the most unexpected people and places. After watching you will never want to travel the same way again!
