Sake Sessions

sake party
"What some sake to go with your success?"

You looked at him with an expression that says: Nani?

"What's with the face, I heard from your BFF that you liked sake.. and that you just hit your target.. ?", he grins knowingly while pouring the sake into the glasses.

"Uh, I do and I have, it's just that... I'm sorta working.. ?"

"It's your day off isn't it?"

"Well yeah but.."

"So here, then have a drink with me."

You take the tiny glass and sip it.

sake party part 2
"So, you and your sake, you guys are together a lot..?"

"Uh yeah, she shows me around.."

"And on public holidays you just bum around doing nothing?"

"I wouldn't call this nothing.. It takes a lot of planning to get this good at what I do"

"Oh yea, right... I heard stories about that…"


"Something about you being a meticulous sake-drinker."

You two laugh and talk about many things.

"Oh, drink up.. I have to get back to work."


The place : Eric's Deli (though it looks nothing like a deli.. more like a chinese restaurant) at hartamas shopping complex

The hook: Good, affordable Chinese food/ also Steamboat, at reasonable prices in comfortable surroundings. Hartamas is a convenient area for most!

The line: You can bring your own booze.. ANY booze

The sinker : NO CORKAGE!

More on "hitting the target": Join the Club, HERE!

Footnote: Only the parts about the TARGET, and those who have to work on public holidays were real. Other parts of the conversation, just happened in the over-active, sake-soaked mind of a monkey blogger .. namely me, Ciki.
