The Asian Persuasion

I recently returned from a short weekend trip to Singapore. My family and I were there for a show, so there was little room for bar-hopping on that one night we had in town. While I, of course, had an entire list of bars in mind, realistically we only had time for one (and maybe... Continue Reading →


“Maybe next time, buddy.”

I watched her sidle up to the seat at the bar right in front of him. She was always there earlier than the rest of her friends -- probably how she pretty close to him in the first place. "Hmm. Feels like a good day today. I'll start with a scotch on the rocks --... Continue Reading →

Netflix & Chew: Samurai Gourmet

I've been wanting to talk about this series that I've come to fall in love with after a few episodes: Samurai Gourmet. It's based on a manga (Japanese comic) that follows the culinary journey of a 60-year-old retiree in Japan. He's not cooking though -- he's eating. In his "journey" of discovering life after retirement,... Continue Reading →

Everyone’s A Critic

Recently, there was a tad bit of drama in the social-media-sphere as a bar owner got into a bit of a comment-tussle with a customer who happened to put up a negative post about the bar. Several sarcastic comments and insults were tossed in, not by the bar owner alone, but also close friends and... Continue Reading →

Netflix and Chew: Cooked

The day one of my college friends introduced me to Netflix back while I was studying in the US, was the beginning of a beautiful relationship between couch potato and screen. I've always loved some of the Netflix originals on there -- though in the US, there were a lot more options for Netflix original... Continue Reading →

A change of heart

Greetings! As you can see, the site has gone through a bit of a re-brand. I know, re-branding usually takes place once a brand has failed miserably after a significant amount of time following its launch. None of which my previous site went through -- it didn't exactly have enough time to fail miserably. Nonetheless,... Continue Reading →

Sippin’ on Gin & Juice

My first couple of posts have all been about whisky. Can you blame me though? I've grown up drinking it for a little under half my life. Though, it wasn't always the good stuff, unfortunately. But perhaps its time I share a little bit about my newfound love... for Gin. I started off not liking... Continue Reading →

A sun-kissed blend

One of the first few single malts my family introduced me to was the Glenmorangie 10 Year Old (Original). It was delicate, well-balanced and definitely a delightful change from the Jack Daniels I had been guzzling the night before. It was my first step into whisky-snobbery -- well, among my friends at least. Whisky and... Continue Reading →

When Johnnie Keeps a’Walkin…

The Johnnie Walker brand has become somewhat of a household name when it comes to Blended Scotch Whisky. Personally, I've had a long-term relationship with Johnnie Walker Black Label that started back in college (pre-U). It wasn't till I started working that I was exposed to the more premium labels such as the Gold Label... Continue Reading →
