Though I don't like beer much, some people drink jugs of it to get mabuk..then fall on the roadside and start puking..and get beer bellies like 6-7 months pregnant!

I know its an acquired taste. Had one beer overseas, San Miguel something. Tasted nice and refreshing..it was brewed well.. the taste of malt and hops was nice. That was the only time I enjoyed having a 'hic!'

Tupai, sir, you drink petrol also ar.. :eek: Which brand? :D what is exludink petroll? Or is it excludink you mean. Just kidding :D

alexhay
24-12-2005, 11:37 AM

alexhay, u're alwiz welcome to look for me to drink wif u .. :) me too oledi hv beer belly long time ago ... ppl might even think im 2 months pregnant!! :eek: :p

kokomo
24-12-2005, 11:43 AM
Yepz, San Miguel is nice, drank it once ... very smooth .. even Anchor Ice, Corona also v smooth .. but all this are expensive beer la ... cannot afford to drink in jugs ..

Some reasons why ppl drink until drunk is b'cos they drink on an empty stomach, they feel down, they feel depress, tired, love sick, got dumped & etc ..

Errr ... and no i'm not in one of those categories ar .. i drink to enjoy wif friends ... then go home sleep!!! hehee ..

alexhay
24-12-2005, 11:46 AM
kokomo...2 months arr...me i think 4 months already lorr....i even can match a pregnent colleague of mine..;) ...

but my all time favo is still kilkerny (if this is the correct spelling) for beer...Chivas for liquor and south american wine ...

i do drink..at times i can drink up to 3 or 4 big bottles alone...but still not drunk...when u drink...try to eat some oily food, walk around, talk more....and go to toilet often..then u wun get drunk easily..

Hi baby
(1st time i address a stranger as a 'baby' , which was/is reserved for xgf/wives/wife/daughters :p )...hi baby, again :p

san miguel is filipino beer. its like singha beer in siam. tiger in spore/mal. angka in indon...anyway, its beer. Tell u duh truth, afetr the 2nd glass ALL beer taste the same... hic!...this is proven in blind tests ...even 90% of the hard core, beer guzzling 8-month pregnant, drinkers get the brand wrong in their second glass.

i drink petronas...(personal patriotic taste); better flavor, full bodied, whiff of fruity bouquet with a hint of lead. and competitively priced versus duh imported brands :p

i meant 'excluding' not 'exludink' nor 'excludink'..i was a bit ..hic!...no, no, not drunk (hic!)...simply hapi 'n meri...hic! :D

Ah yes, KilKenny is an Irish beer .. that one I drank b4 also .. v nice ..

Chivas, Jack Daniels, Hennessy White .. all this good !!! hehe .. :D

That's why men who drinks & eat at the same time , puts on weight faster than anyone who eats a lot .. cos if we drink non-stop , we'll keep eating n chattin' till we're really filled .. :cool:

There is this place where i went and tried their wine .. it's really nice and smooth ... and yes tupai , the wine is sweet not 'foo' wine ..

The name of the shop is Wine Cottage in KL. This wine cottage actually supply wines to Hyatt Saujana and other pubs or reputable rest. as well ..

Wine is not expensive there for a good wine i mean .. jz that those place that we drink they mark up the price of the wine .. :mad: :(

if there is any women / young lady / gurl that can drink todi ... it's RARE!!!

Is it true that eating loads of margarine and butter prevents someone from getting drunk?? Even on empty stomach? Oh it's bad drinking when you're love sick and esp dumped (got whacked!) no stop button one..very dangerous.

:D Tupai, you are very funny.

There are so many different types of beer. Anyone likes the irish ales ie Kilkenny, caffreys so creamy and rich. German beers are quite good too esp the weissbeers. No preservatives. Belgian, Dutch even the warm ale that many brits adore are very different in taste. Even some Oz beers are pretty good...have a friend who's a vic bitter fan. Not me! Thanks to him for all these info!

I think the worst beers are the anchor, tiger, singha. Yucky tastes.. like chilled piss. :D :eek:

not nice nevermind. Try Guiness stout with raw egg. Someone told me it's SHIOK!!!

or shock-ing for me! :D

A friend told me, that if you drink Weiss Beer, towards finishing, throw in a few pieces of uncooked rice and watch it foam again.. then finish the beer.... Other type of beer cannot re-foam one. Havent got the chance to try it out. No idea if this really works. Who is the beer expert here? :D

If you want to enjoy real nice beer...go to an Irish pub. Give Kilkenny or Tatley's a try. You will change you mind about them being gassy. And if you get a chance, try Beamish.

I'll get my coat.

when I was in medical school, we enjoyed drinking esp Christmas, new year ..... and the trick to 'outdrink' others is to take a medication called zantac (generic name : ranitdine) before the fun starts ....and it definitely helped. Instead of getting drunk after 5 mugs, you can take up to 10 mugs :-) But the general idea is not to drink on empty stomach ; get drunk faster. So the idea of butter sound about right. :) :)

hahhahahh...some people drink to get away from problem but it is always a bonus if it gets rid of worms too :D

those with wormy problems (previous thread somewhere...) can now kill 2 worms with one tablet :p or is it intoxicate a few worms with a tablet, chase down with heineken :D

Brunei is alcohol-free country. But passengers can bring in 2 bottles of liquor, better than in Malaysia, how come? So most Bruneians bring back the 1.36 litre or 2 litre ones when they return home from Singapore, Labuan or just Miri.

Labuan is cheapest with best varieties. Even got John Smith lager lah.... the favorite during younger days in the UK. :D

Yes, in Brunei CHIVAS Regal is the favorite. Second would be JW Black Label and third... Australian wines man... Bin 555, 777, 888 or 999 oso can.... :D

The English Yorkshire bitter is terrible, or maybe I dont know how to appreciate it. But indeed, the German beers are exhilirating. I remember drinking in the Frankfurt pub until it closed. But the boss allowed us to stay inside and drank till the next morning!! What an experience!! Heh heh!!

But I really luv champagne, ice wine and good white wines.

When I was learning German in Goethe Institut in KL, my lecturer told us that German consider beer as food and not drink. That is why they have a different gender in their grammar.

Personally I never drink before. But as far as I know from the survey conducted Asian has lower level of tolerant than their mat salleh counterpart. And man and woman has different tolerant. But I think it all depend on how many glass one can confuse before they pass out. Isnt it?

Looks like quite a number of you have discovered the joys of weissen beer. I don't know why, but i can enjoy it the whole day through when i'm in Germany, but when i drink the local beer here, 2 glasses, and i feel like throwing up.
BTW anyone know where to get regular stocks of weissen beer in USJ? the only place i seem to be able to find it is Logenhaus in Taipan.

You guys really know how to 'hic!!'. Thanks for all your replies!
Ok just remember don't drink till you collapse by the roadside and don't know what comes tomorrow! :D

Me would not get hooked on beer that's for sure.
Hmm there's this Shandy thing. Remember Shandy? Yuks too! Cooler maybe..If I have to have a mug of beer, would make sure the mug is very cold and beer chilled. Then no bitter taste.

But don't drink so much beer, not good for health! but good for beer-bellies wannabe. :D

Ok. Time to get back to my Chivas, on the rocks!

For those that wannabe 'red' wine drinkers, try chilling it first. Our local weather is not room temperature in temperate countries... :p

You may never know, after the chilling - wines may be replacing your fav. beer mugs.

btw... red wine oso been said to be good for the "ticker" (your heart!) :p

Errrmmm .. besides marjerin & butter , try stuffing cheese into your mouth then start your drinking ... it could help and i mean it did helped me ...

On X'mas nite, when wif some friends to hv fondue in Sri Hartamas then went back home, finally opened my 1979 port wine ... :D

Wine is good and strong .. first glass is oke, second n third glass gets stronger n stronger .. but still can tahan ... so was thinkin' maybe it's the cheese i took ... :rolleyes:

If you guys wanna try some good beer, get your hands on Hoegaarden. It's a belgian brew and after a couple of bottles, you want to have the beer on your face, man. It smells wonderful, seriously. So much so, they can be mistaken for after shaves!

The other one which is also nice is Leffe. Dark beer from belgium as well. This babies are brewed by the monks and taste fantastic. A little bit like tiger mixed with guinness.

Both brands are available in Giant for a about RM11/half bottle.

Being a beer lover myself, and having travelled to Europe, I had the pleasure of having some good brews. Germany has about 20 small breweries in each town. Can you imagine what happens to you?? Thani-lah, matcha!!!!!

To the statement the stomach grows to the size of a melon after guzzling beer, here's news. NO PAIN NO GAIN!!!!!! :cool:

Oh Lord, plse dont remind me of Germany. What a life when I was in Frankfurt for about a month. Boozzz from night to dawn!!! ;-) Jokes aside. The owners would lock up faithfhfully when time was up, and we would be inside the pub till dawn!! Hah..hah...Still remember there was one pub where the owner just left us lock in and he went to bed. Next morning, he came to tabulate the number of bottles we had helped ourselves to! ;-) It was really fun !!
