A few days after I bought it, I finally managed to get my hands on some quality fried chicken drumlets and took a swig of it. First thought I had was 'this is great, the Yuzu flavour is really refreshing but this sure as hell doesn't taste like beer!'.
So after a week sitting in the fridge, I finally took a closer look at the label and guess what it says. Sake! Hah, I suppose the words 'High-Ball' would also had been a dead giveaway. What's more, see how it's labelled 7% alcohol on the bottle instead of 6% like in the ad. Er .... that's a good thing, right?
Time to check out more oldie vintage stuff I found. The collection belonged to my late mom and is very similar to this other set that I posted awhile back. Pretty cool eh? I honestly don't recall them being used at all. Anyway they are all made in England and I reckon at least 40 years ago. Now these days they outsource the manufacturing to India and Indonesia, that's what I have been told. Still haven't figured out what I'm gonna do with them. I guess if anyone's having a Downton Abbey viewing party, I could loan them out. ;)

Soooooo there's a tiny little chance that I might be heading to the US, or Indianapolis and New York to be exact, next week. I'm quite wary about it but my 92-year-old aunt and almost everyone else insist that I make the journey. It has been almost 15 years since I was in the Big Apple, I'm sure things have changed, from what I'm hearing it ain't all for the better. I have asked a couple of friends about stuff like SIM cards (T-mobile seems to be the fav) and taking domestic flights, both things that I have never done before in the US. I'm also mentally prepared for a ton of racist encounters. Its gonna be pretty crazy as I don't know a single person there. Yikes! For better or worse, it will be an unforgettable odyssey.
