All about Heineken

I have never in my life drank a bottle of beer.I have drank a can of beer which is the Chang Beer .Thinking about Chang Beer , it is somehow drew my memories back to the past when my best friend ,Geh was still in Penang.He spared me one of his few cans of beer which he had taken from his home to the annual prefect New Year Celebration.We were at form 4 that moment.

By then ,I drank the can of beer forcefully because I wanted to proof that I have grown up. Sound kind of weird ,I know. Now ,I started to enjoy the real taste of beer. Tonight was the second gathering in 2007 of Jun Juong and my ex-schoolmates ,first we went to Max restaurant to have our dinner and then window shopping at Queensbay mall. After that,we search for a suitable place for us to have a little chat. Finally,we found Bailey’s Pub at Crystal Point . We went there and ordered a bottle of Heineken each . Till around 12.20 p.m. we left the place and went to Pelita Nasi Kandar which is opposite my house for a supper.

Talking about the beer, I have realized that the taste of the beer is different from taking a sip and drink it in a full glup . Then before I can further explain the enjoyment of the beer ,I have to be more experience to clarify further.

The Heineken beer is somehow different from the Carlsberg Beer .The major different is the after taste of the beer, Heineken has no after taste and less bitter compared to Carlsberg.

Glass bottles remain the most popular way of enjoying Heineken, with the distinctive green 33cl bottle taking centre stage in more than 180 countries across the globe.

Wherever you travel, you will find that this green bottle delivers the unique taste and flavour of Heineken – a beer that’s been brewed in Holland since 1873.

But whilst the country and climate may change, the taste and purity of our beer remains the same - the very highest quality, brewed to the most rigid standards and using only natural the taste and purity of our beer remains the same - the very highest quality, brewed to the most rigid standards and using only natural ingredients.

A NIKE Experience

I am here not to promote anything but to leave a memorable experience in my life.I was working in a Nike shop in Queensbay Mall. I heard that there is a sales going on at the Prangin Mall outlet. The management of the Pallas Unlimited is going to close down the shop by end of the month(June 2007) . So after working for about 2 weeks at Queensbay Mall ,finally i have freedom to do whatever i want. I went to Prangin Mall on 11 of June in the morning. I saw one pair of my fav Nike shoes which is the NIke Free series. I really like them . Not only the Free range have nice outlook but also it is heavenly light as if you are wearing nothing.

I have tried some pairs when i was working in Queensbay Mall. I have aquired a lot knowledge .Among the different types of shoes ,I can manage to differentiate the range correctly.Before that, I know nothing about those Nike shoes because i never own one and couldn't bother to even know .

Talking back to the previous paragraph,i was tempted by the sales going on at the store .At night after a tiring day out with Alex and his friend, I persuaded my father to drive me there and pick up that shoes .

When we were at the shop on monday night ,the crowd was there even the school holidays are over. I tried a few pairs of shoes including Nike Air Max,Air 360,Air 180,Free,Nike + and many others. Actually i wanted to buy the Nike + shoes but the discount is 30 percent .Then later i went over to Basketball shoes ,the discount is 50 percent but i was given advice that these basketball shoes can't use for running and training activities ,therefore i didn't choose the range. After a whole shoes hunting experience ,I decided to buy that Nike Free Trail 5.0 shoes ,because there is the only Nike Free left on the display cabinet . I bought it for around RM 190 ,the original price is RM 330 . I enjoyed 40 percent discount on that pair of shoes.

I am like the George of the jungle starting to appreciate the 'urban' of shoes' technology.
