A glass of wine? White or red?
No thanks. A couple pints of beer would be great.
Drinking botol would definitely agree with me on that. Just like how we always order a dozen of hoegaarden and test each other in counting backwards from 10 in French.
But why do I always get indifferent looks when I say that. Fishy said I shucks, girls don't drink beer like a pig. Especially when I go by a dozen pints and not a sip.
At the end of this month, Hairy is turning old again.
'Don't tell me where to go for my B-day. Unless to the durian shop. I'll keeeel you...'
Great. I will make the call – this time round, bring out Paulaner's greatest creation!
Last week when I stumbled upon Brotzeit's website, the weissbiers were calling me and I have to make reservation right away. Having beer is a luxury, paying $15 / RM 36 for a pint of fermented yeast is definitely economically ineffective when times are bad like this.
I struggled a while. And I found the answer. No big deal, we can do it during Happy Hour, yay!
Weissbier 500 ml $12.50 (Happy Hour)
Don't condemn me. I denied the fact that I am turning into a hopeless shopaholic when times are bad. The thing is, when times are like this, you are encouraged to spend more.
Everywhere is having clearance sales.
Even airlines are cutting fares like doing charity.
When it comes to food, I have no reason not to splurge.
The German Pork Knuckle ($36) served is so darn generous. The side serving of the potato salad is huge and the Sauerkraut (braised white cabbage) is of unfinishable portion.
Roasted leg of the poor swine
The Sausage Platter ($32.50) looked equally intimidating to me. The platter came with 8 types of sausages: spicy chicken, smoked pork, lamb, curry, garlic ... and I lost count.
"This is meat-crazy. We have to ta-pao." I yelled.
"Excuse me. You think you are a small eater meh." Said with his signature rolled-eyes.
A side note to that, we ordered another Bavarian Fladenbrot a.k.a German Pizza ($18.50) that came with 16-square pieces of flatbread topped with Blackforest ham and emmenthaler cheese. Picture not shown here. Arhem, I deny the fact that I am a big eater.
What's more, the meal was ended with much surprise, to him.
I pissed him off.
With a candle on the tiramisu.
I requested for their signature tiramisu made with weissbier to be served with birthday greetings on the side beforehand. Candle was not in the request, I swear.
But I wanted to piss him off further. I wonder how he looked if the restaurant crew were to gather in a circle and sang him a birthday song in German, aloud.
And then everyone around clap their hands...ahah...now that's more like it.
Okay lucky hairy, the crew didn't sing the song. But I made him blew the candle and made a wish.
That was a good one.
That was a good one.
Oh, and by the way, when times are bad, the birthday tiramisu is free-of-charge.
Happy 29th, Hairy.
