For those who may be asking what is “suspended” coffee, below is the explanation.

The daily trip to a local coffee shop may give you your caffeine fix – but thanks to a new scheme, it could also give you a chance to do a small good deed.

The idea of “Suspended Coffee” is simple: When you buy yourself a coffee at a participating cafe, you also pay for a second one – which can then be claimed by someone who cannot afford it themselves.

They don’t have to “prove” anything to claim one, but the scheme relies on the good faith of everyone involved.

The movement has been growing in popularity since it began in Italy several years ago, and has already been embraced by hundreds of coffee shops around the world. Now Starbucks has announced it will soon be adopting a version of the scheme.

Interestingly, we wish to put forth this question to you Malaysian viewers; do you think this scheme or such culture will survive in our local scene?

Here locally, we see locals showing signs of wariness by their chatting and sharing among themselves on social issues in Facebook.com and other media platforms.

The illustration below is a depiction that is merely a tip of the ice berg of our current local social issues.

With high influx of immigrants from Bangladesh, Myanmar and other third world countries in this country, growing up in an environment of racial games by political parties which create suspicion and hatred among the people, and etc.; we are not certain to what extend the social-cultural-economic headaches, we will be facing ahead of us.

While the rest of the world are promoting good values within communities shown in the videos below.
