i actually saw more of the henny, the fukianese weddings had the walker reds, but bleh, I meant amongst us wine snobs, no one really drinks johnny walker red =)

I'm certainly not drinking walker red or black or green or gold or blue on chinese new years.

for some, the henny is just a bottle filled with black tea. but i've also had the real deal henny at a wedding.

walker red is gross. red is symbolic but then martell is also red. Smile

I'll be celebrating this year with a Chinese client of mine at Sun Wah in Chicago.

I'll be bringing a variety of hopped-up Three Floyds beers.

Maybe some riesling with some spicy Szechuan. Pinot with the roast duck. And some budweiser for my dad. I've bought Stone Brew, Chimay, Blue Moon, Russian River Brewery, and my dad will always rather pick the Bud.

I was introduced to ginseng Brandy a long time ago which was actually pretty good.

Maotai LCBO Sale

$54 off. There is a reason the bottle looks like a can of motor oil. I would rather drink castrol.


Looking forward to those mags of '08 Salon.

I hope it shows better than the one I opened for Mr. and Mrs. Bman. The brett was over the top and it was very disappointing. Ack

I'll be drinking Château Lafite and coke which the dealer, Rudy Kurniawan, assured me is the correct method of consumption for this type of Bordeaux.

Now that you mentioned it, I will remember whenever I see a castrol again. LOL
Good thing I only use Mobil1 and Motul.
