Alcoholics Anonymous

Monday, January 14, 2008

I don't remember if it was Carla or Meianne who once told me, 'You gotta slow down. I'm worried that you might be an alcoholic.' This was between 2003 and 2004, when we used to skip classes and get our butts to this students' bar in Katipunan called Beckhams. I initially thought it was sort of in honor of David Beckham, but then I didn't really see a lot of pictures of him....

...Or maybe I was just too drunk I couldn't remember.

And scrap that. Meianne was also an alcoholic so it was definitely Carla who said that. It really didn't matter. I always thought I had full control of myself when I'm surrounded by alcoholic drinks even though I always end up snoozing in the cab at the end of each drinking session.

Hay, college! I miss those days! Especially now that UP is celebrating its centennial.

Anyway, I made an interesting discovery about a month ago. I was too tired to go out and was too excited to get blasted. So I took a quick trip to the nearest 7-Eleven store and bought the cheapest vodka I could find. When I lived in the Legaspi condo with Belle, we used to go to Mini Stop and buy cheap vodka. She's good in mixing it with some stuff. I was never good at that. So I took a bottle of Cossack vodka and a bottle of Mountain Dew.

It might not be the best drink in the world but it definitely is a good treat when you're drinking alone... especially:



...if you pair it with these yummy Pastel buns filled with yema-like goodies. YUM YUM YUM! It was Boris, my housemate in college who once brought this tasty delight. He said it can only be purchased in Camiguin. But lo and behold, I found a stall two years after in Market! Market! so I was REALLY in ecstasy (and on the verge of being over-overweight too).

The nearby Shopwise bakery sells them too. If you want 'em, come and get 'em. You won't regret it. Pair it with a great drink and you can enjoy yourself while watching some good TV care of the bitch named Janice Dickinson:
