Things That Is Salah: Cigarette Butt In Urinal

September 8, 2020 – 9:25 am 3 Comments

I hate seeing cigarette butt in the urinal. We are in the pub and there’s many ashtray out there for you to die off your cigarette. The only solution for pub owners is maybe put ashtray in the toilets.

Smoker sometimes are just pure lazy, throwing cigarette butt anywhere for convenient sake. Come on smoker be more considerate. Still wish one day all pub are smoke free in Malaysia, then won’t see this kind of cigarette littering.

a life less ordinary vs beer embargo?

June 7, 2021 – 8:59 am 2 Comments

For the first time in my life, I turned down all invite for booze over the weekend. There were about 6 of it and I even went to the pub twice and not a single drop of alcohol. It’s Saturday now and I just came back fresh from a party, and yet still without a single drop of alcohol.

What happened? There’s a few possiblities; for instance I am just f***ing with you, or I finally f***ing own up to my ‘I want to f***ing quit drinking’ talk I have been saying since 2001 or just an attention seeking hiatus. Fact is, it was none of the above. I am sick.

Sick as in just a simple gum infection, nothing too extraordinary, but it was, in my humble opinion, more hurtful than having a Brazilian wax every minute of the day. But it wasn’t really. I am chicken shit, so I loaded myself with drugs to kill the awful awful torment, drugs to help me sleep and after a short consulation with a person so familiar with drugs, he’s got a degree in it, he managed to convince (tricked) me to take antibiotic!!! You’re probably thinking, it’s only antibiotic, it’s not f***ing rats’ poison or cynide.

It might as well be. There’re so much drugs in my system, you might as well change my name to Pfizer.

“Here take this 3 times a day. You might as well take one now!”

“Ok, yeah, sure.”

“Oh, by the way, you should not consume any alcohol while taking this drug.”

“For how long?”

“Just until you finish the course of antibiotic.”

“What antibiotic? THAT…!!!? Are you f***ing kidding me? Ughhhhh…IT’S THE F***ING WEEKEND!!!”

I broke his pen and left the clinic. Might have also gave him the finger and some unintended profanities might have occur on the way out.

Truth be told, I *can* consume alcohol.  All it’s going to do (supposedly, you can’t quote me on this) is just render the antibiotic useless and probably but not likely hit me with worse infection. Won’t die from it, but don’t quite fancy another infection. Hence, an internal alcohol embargo.

So everytime the phone rings, a part of me wants to throw in the towel and give in to fate. All but one call, from Borj, and Italian friend that cooks, like, well…any other Italian. Good food, great company, a lot of chicks, and wait for it…booze. 10 minutes into the party, I was only chewing on baked potatoes and my beloved friends were stoked that I was not on my second beer. Or gin. Or both and some tequilla shots too. Explaining myself was not as tough as trying to f***ing talk to anyone, cause I have never f***ing seen them while I am sober before.

Surprise, surprise, I was dry with humour, too f***ing edgy, even walked away from a fine English lady that was talking to me about some gibberish because I don’t know what was appropriate to say. Bloody amateur. In short, not only did I purge (supposedly) the toxin away, I indeed purged some friends away too. What do I usually say or do with them I was drunk that it took so much of my time? So much for my first weekend without booze.

Skipinder#2 – Guide to Drinking like An Hero

April 21, 2021 – 9:22 am Comments Off

Drinking long enough in different places in town and you will notice that there are so many kinds of drinker. Happy drinker, emo drinker, downer, 1 upper, silent killer, follower and well, you get the idea.

To drink like a champion, you gotta first know how your other fellow drinkers drink. Here is a brief run down.

1. Happy Drinker: The most normal of them all. They start out sober, drink and gets happier as the more drinks they consume. After that, the either stop or drunk.

2. Emo Drinker: The class of drinker gets more emotional and crazy after a few drinks. They will start crying, making scenes and doing stupid things like break up for no reason, they will only regret the next morning.

3. Downer: The suicide class. Claim they can drink, get beer, down like AN hero, knocked himself out after TWO pints of beer.

4. 1 Upper: Similar to downer, they always try to start 1 pint ahead of people. However, some drinkers manage to survive the 1 Upping skills while some die a horrible death of puke and hangover.

5. Silent Killer: There are two genres of silent killers. The first one looks sober and manage to get you drunk and happy. The other kind is drunk and you don’t even notice. Or they are simply just too quiet.

6. Follower: Usually a good drinker, you don’t push you on how many you can drink, but keep up with your pace until you KO.

7. Birthday People: Everyone get to become the birthday people drinker once a year (or 4, depends). The class or drinker is technically in the compulsory drinking binge in which they drink whatever people pitch at them. Must consist of at least a shot of tequila and a flaming Lamborghini.

So, what kind of drinker are you and your best mates?

Winning the calorie conscious beer drinkers

October 31, 2020 – 8:46 am Comments Off


(The StarOnline) MILWAUKEE: How low can beer makers go? Having conquered the beer-belly set, some of the biggest U.S. brewers are trying to win over the six-pack-ab crowd with ultra-low-calorie suds. The question is: Are drinkers willing to sacrifice flavor and a bit of the buzz? And: How long before beer gets turned back into water?

Most regular American beers, such as Budweiser, have about 150 calories and 5 percent alcohol, while most light beers contain around 100 calories and 4 percent alcohol. The new brews, MillerCoors’ Miller Genuine Draft 64 and Anheuser-Busch InBev’s Select 55, are well below that.

Their calorie counts are in their names, and they both contain less than 3 percent alcohol. Guzzling a whole MGD 64 or Select 55 is like taking a few swigs of a Bud. Mindy Rotellini, a 25-year-old graphic designer from St. Louis who watches her calories, reaches for MGD 64 from time to time, even though the brew is “kind of watery” and it’s tough to feel the alcohol.

“I just have to drink more, and then it’s going to equal the amount of calories in a regular beer, so why not just drink a regular beer?” she says.

Chris Bethel switched to Select 55 because it is low-cal. He says he likes the light taste and doesn’t mind the reduced alcohol. “I’m not a college kid trying to get wasted,” says the 36-year-old network engineer in the Columbus, Ohio, area.

Both drinkers speak to an unavoidable tradeoff: To cut calories, beer companies reduce the amount of malted barley and other grains that are fermented during the brewing process. That, in turn, reduces the amount of alcohol in the brew. The result is a beer more like its main ingredient, water.

“You start producing something that could taste very, very thin,” says Thomas Shellhammer, professor of fermentation science at Oregon State University. “That would be the challenge for the brewer, to produce something that still tastes like beer.”

(As for nonalcoholic beers, some have more flavor than others, but overall they tend to have more calories than the super-low-cal brews. The top-selling brand, O’Doul’s, made by Anheuser-Busch, has about 70 calories and is thin-tasting.)

Light beers account for about half of the US$99 billion-a-year beer market in the U.S., according to the Beverage Information Group, a market research firm. But the market for super-low-calorie is probably small, says Eric Schmidt, manager of information services.

MillerCoors says MGD 64 (slogan: “As light as it gets”) has sold twice as much in its first year as Miller Genuine Draft Light, which it replaced a year ago. It would not release specific figures.

After a few weeks of testing Select 55 in 15 markets, Anheuser-Busch decided to expand into a dozen more starting this month. The company isn’t sure yet whether demand for the beer is big enough for it to go national. MGD 64 is 2.8 percent alcohol. Select 55 is 2.4 percent.

David Mitchell has been drinking MGD 64 since its release and says he prefers its taste to that of Coors Light, his previous beer of choice. “It’s almost like drinking a glass of water, but it has the beer taste,” says the 41-year-old from Gilbert, Arizona.

But some hardcore dieters aren’t interested. Beer connoisseur John LeMasney used to review craft beers on his site but gave that up after gaining 50 pounds (22 kilograms) in a year.

He has cut back on his drinking to lose weight. But he refuses to try the new low-cal beers.”I’d rather spend 200 calories and get something I really enjoy,” he says.

Malaysia records 4th death on A(H1N1)

July 29, 2021 – 2:48 pm Comments Off


The madness of A(H1N1) has gone out of hand. Getting more and more cases as the virus spread around like wild fire. Many that came back from oversea must learn to self quarantine to unsure that you are not infected with this virus at the same time spreading it.

I guess many are not aware of the danger of this virus. So far it have taken away 4 life in Malaysia and the most recent one is a 20 years old girl. I’m not too sure how the virus spread, but I do know that it spread very easily.

Many school is now closed because of the virus spreading to many locals. Local transmission is in an alarming stage. Please don’t take the virus lightly, it doesn’t sound very scary with a name called A(H1N1), maybe they should rename the virus to make it more scary. This way people will feel more aware and careful with their daily lifestyle.

Avoid crowded places, including nightspot. If really need some alcohol, call some friends over and drink at home for more secure from contacting this viruses. If really need to, then just remember to clean yourself before and after going out. Just remember the word sanitize, it just some preventive measure.

I don’t thing beer can protect your from A(H1N1) or any other alcohol. So if you have to enjoy yourself out there, just be more cautions. If you just came back from oversea trip, then is best to quarantine yourself for a while.

We just hope A(H1N1) trend will end as fast as possible. The alarming rate is scary, Beerbeer wish everyone have good health to protect against this virus. Hope this will over soon and we will start cheering in big crowd again. Take care!
