After a while of working from home, you might want a change of scenery. While it is quite common to work at coffee shops and cafes, it isn't exactly ideal as it can get rather noisy or very pricey.

I'm looking at you, RM19 single-origin black coffee.

Besides that, if you're like me, you might not like getting judgey looks from the cafe staff for overstaying your welcome.
