Of Beers and Wines


I know I'm kinda unsure of the tastes of wines, that is because, I have never loved wines, and for one fact, I am not interested in it. It may sound very backwards of me, or very strange of me to be apprehensive with wines.

Ok, I just feel that it's a man's drink. But I do know and understand that there are a lot of people, regardless of the gender, who love wine tasting and the idea of wine-drinking.


There's one fact I would like to share with you, when I was in high school, right after graduation, my best friend and I celebrated our diploma, we each had a bottle of Beer na Beer to enjoy. When I went home, I threw up everything that I consumed.

The following week, there was another celebration and we consumed half of the small Bouchard bottle that was served us. Again, I threw up.

When in college, I was on my third year, we had just finished doing our feasibility study when my group decided of getting some Red Horse Stallion, I had a bottle but passed out after two glasses.

The last I tasted beer was three years ago, it was January 2 on a reunion with friends, I had a bottle of San Mig Light, the following morning, my body was full of rashes.

I don't understand it, I may be allergic with alcohol but it did not appear on the results of my allergy tests. I wanted to try, it seems really cool and "sosyal" but I just can't find my way towards it.

If there's one recent thing that I met wine, it was last week, I poured it in a pot of beef stew.

What about you? Do you love beers and wines? The only alcohol thing friendly with me is, right, Coke!

AA member ako! :P ahaha

you just might have an allergic reaction to taking too much alcohol too fast. :P

i only got drunk, once. on purpose. finished a whole bottle of red wine (o diba, maglalasing na lang, yung sushal pa! :P) but it was the cheap kind of red wine. other times, i'd have 2 beer bottles max.

nakakhiya man aminin, i used to be a semi-"drinker" before. pero nung nagka anak ako (9 years ago), parang sumama ang lasa ng lahat ng alcoholic drinks. trulyly!

so now, while all of my friends order beer or wine, i drink coke. he he!

cheers sheng!

Yeah I drink but only on occassions. I do drink beer, tequila, alcohol mixes (favorite ko zombie mix)or any alcohol na kaya ko inumin. Try mo smirrnoff ice or cruiser ice, meron mas cheap yung tanduay ice. Sarap yun baka magustuhan mo. :)

So baka matanong mo if I did got drunk, well...well....once lang hindi na naulit kasi I drink moderately na. :)

Kampay!!!!!

TheHusband and I have this goal of tasting all the brands of beers worldwide. Some goal, right? *smirk* And we're not even approaching a quarter, I think. So far, I like Asahi and Corona the best; TheHusband prefers Boddington.

Do not take wine if you do not have anything on your stomach. It will hit you right away. There are different kind of wines, but I prefer Pinot Noir.

Eat something ahead of time if you are planning to drink wine or beer or evern hard liquor... Alcohol needs to burn something in your tummy and if you do not have any - you'll be knock out fast.

Based on your story - I think you are allergic to beer but not on alcohol. Do not drink San Mig Light again or any beer in any way... you'll end up suffocating yourself due to constricted airways.

Also do not forget that if you like wine for a "social" drinking - try to match it with proper meat... not all wines will be good if you're eating fish or pork or beef...

Wine is still the best...

But I think - the best beer is Budweiser Premuim Select Beer 55 Calories... San Mig light is just like Corona... But for more fuller taste - Blue Moon and Sam Adams are the best - San Miguel Beer is just far out of the competition.

That's what I think...

Hi Sheng,

I do not blog but I loved reading blogs... Sorry...and thanks for the message.

By the way - do not drink also if you are too full, you will end up the same. I suggest, if you plan to drink, you should eat an hour or two before drinking... that will surely do you wonders as it does to most of the drinkers...

Also, if you want to try Tequila; try Patron or 1800 and you will be amazed... Jose Cuervo's 'lil bit dry but those two will really give you a better drinking experience but just don't drink to much because Tequila is much worse in giving hany over than any other i've tried drinking...

Halong kamo dah tanan!!
