I'm not much of a party animal and I think only beer and other hard liquors can do that to you. I hate losing control of my bodily functions.
But I do have several favorite beers but I don't see them served in the Philippines.
So for the purpose of this thread, I'd choose wine. There are tons of different wines in this country. Filipinos have only seen and tasted a few of them, thanks to our protectionist policy vs foreign investors. Wine can give you just a slight and pleasant buzz, but not get you totally drunk as a skunk and starts you beating up the guy next to you who is singing Frank Sinatra's "My Way" in a karaoke bar
. Wines are great with homemade breads and chunks of assorted cheeses, even fresh fruits. They also make you look more sophisticated or distinguished or like a professor
or a learned man with breeding, even though you can be the next serial killer like Ted Bundy
If nothing else, they make your farts smell cheesy. If you do not overindulge wines do lower your BP. It also makes for a good excuse to take the Napa Valley wine-tasting train ride, even though you know darn well you are one f*c*ed up alcoholic, and mix in with the white folks. Oh yeah! Suddenly you are feeling white. Isa pa ha they say wines make women horsey...*hick*...I mean h orney...not that I need women to get jiggy with me. Which brings me to raise the point that with wine you do not necessarily become fresh with the chicks or hen for that matter. Wines gives you a boost of confidence or the phenom locally known to us as "feeling pogi". For the moment you're feeling like Mr. Suave, or Justin Beiber (LOL) even though you know deep down you look like Mr. Bean. So you approach a girl in a bar and whisper to her ear and all you get is a slap across your cheeks...OH YEAH! You know she wants it! Then you make your John Travolta strut across the floor making patrons of the bar to LOL. "What a loser!" they say. But who cares. You're feeling hot now.
Also, girls tell me that they hate beer breath on guys when they make love to them. They'd rather make love to a guy with the smell of sweet wine in his breath. So make sure you have a wine-filled mouth sprayer handy before you make your "smove". OK, I'm drunk now and being a blubbering blithering idiot. Sorry.
