Drinking Do’s and Dont’s

November 18, 2008

beerdrinker1Like any other things that we do, drinking should also be done with the right attitude. Treating your drinking buddies with decorum is a good thing. And you might want to learn the BIG no-nos for more a peaceful and satisfying inuman session.lols.   

These are so-called commandments that you should follow. I just would like to share these to the drinking dudes. Here are the DO’s and DONT’S when you’re drinking that I personally wrote with a li’l help from a text message I received 😎         

1. Don’t be “suwapang” in an inuman session. You’ll have your own turn to drink so don’t go grabbing someone else’s shot. Remember that you’re there to share the drink and you’re not drinking alone. Give your drinking buddies a chance to gulp.     

2. Don’t eat the pulutan as if you’re in an eat-all-you-can resto.
An inuman session is half-fun without the pulutan. However, that doesn’t give you a valid reason to be a glutton. Get a spoonful of pulutan once every shot. Try to control your appetite or else go to the nearby carinderia. lols. Don’t wait for your deed get into their nerves and yell, “Wag mong gawing kanin ang pulutan” at you.

3. Don’t drink too slowly. Your thirsty drinking buddies are waiting on queue. Don’t keep on holding your shot for a long time. Keeping a good conversation is good but you should know when to stop yakking and drink your shot.  

4. Drinking treats are fine but know when to chip in. If you have a few bucks in your wallet, spend some. It won’t hurt to spend when you’re having fun. Bring out the “galante” in you and give something back. It’s a sort of give and take.lols.

5. Try to control your “amats”. In other words, “ilagay mo sa tiyan at wag sa ulo”. Other people talk too much nonsense and act insensitively when they’re drunk. Don’t get nasty and talk about things which don’t interest your drinking buddies at all. Be a good listener and try to remain sober.  
6. Inform your drinking buddies if you’re going home. Though it’s better to stay until the inuman session ends, it would help if you just go home when you know it’s the righ time. But you must inform the dudes where you’re going. It would give them peace of mind somehow. Don’t leave them guessing.         

7. Set aside your pamasahe. Don’t go overspending, dude. If you have your full-tank wheels, then there’s no need to worry. If you’d still have to travel a few miles, then save something if you don’t want to be in serious trouble. It would be such a hassle to go walking when your head seems spinning and you can’t even walk through a straight path.  

8. Don’t sleep in front of your drinking buddies. Like you, they’re also drunk. And drunk people can never be trusted. They’ll play you around and do silly things. They might make you a human canvass and paint everything they want on you. The worst is that they might pull your pants and brief down and take a pic of your naked body, which I’m sure you won’t like.   

9. Make sure you enter the right door when you go home. Drunk people sometimes have a poor sense of direction. You might mistake your unit to your neighbor’s who’s a girl-next-door type that you fancy for a long time. Good thing if she favors the intrusion. If not, you’re more likely to wake up in prison the next day.   

10. Don’t puke (don’t think of something else, please) on the dude beside you. It’s too gross to puke on someone. As much as possible, go out and rush to the nearest comfort room. You’re lucky if the victim is Mr. Patience who’s willing to accept your apologies.  

11. Drink moderately and know when to say “ayoko na”. It’s pretty hard for drinkers to say that they can’t drink anymore. You know pretty well your drinking abilities. Thus, you should decide for yourself if you can still swallow your shot or not. Don’t fake your sobriety ’cause you’ll end up crawling on the ground. If you feel you’ll fall at any moment, sit still and avoid unnecessary movements. Don’t even dare to dive into a pool without your buddies around.   

12. Keep your personal stuffs safe.
Believe me when I say that drunk dudes become inattentive of their personal things. They seem numb and don’t pay attention to their possessions. You can never blame your buddies if you lose them. And you’d surely be in drinking hiatus to save and buy those things again.        

Hope you learned something from this stupid post.

Pano ba yan? INUMAN NA!


Vodka No More

August 19, 2008

We had our annual company outing last Friday. And it took a week for me to decide whether I’ll post something about it or not. I hesitated because some things got out of hand, some things messed up, and some things might be so embarrassing!

My teammates and I went overnight and the drinking session lasted until the evening. We almost drank 3 cases of Red Horse and two bottles of vodka. We were still sober, not until we drank vodka. That was tragedy. hehe.  

I got so drunk that I even passed out at the poolside. I couldn’t even remember how it happened. All I can remember is that I was drinking vodka with Echel and CJ. Echel was figuring out who likes who while CJ was busy pouring that cursed drink. Take note, he was giving Echel and me a glassful but only filled the glass half-full when it was his turn to gulp.

Rex was off again with his tulug-tulugan stint.
Justin was desperately looking for rice but to no avail.
Raf was problematic with her Hellgirl look which she got when she knocked her forehead on the slide. Candice was looking so sexy on her swimsuit . ehem. CJ was in-charge of the videoke machine and the tagay. Echel amazed everyone when she removed the beer cap with her sharp teeth.
Donna was so busy watering the plants with her puke.

After that, I couldn’t remember a thing. I just remembered myself saying “I’m okay, guys. I know what I’m doing!”. Yes, I was speaking English and Tagalog. I dunno how to explain it but I find it hard to speak Bisaya when I’m drunk. An officemate, who doesn’t know that I grew up in Cavite and more fluent in Tagalog, said “Wag kang magta-Tagalog kasi di ka angayan” (Wag kang magta-Tagalog kasi di naman bagay”) haha

Ugh, how embarrassing! I didn’t ask them how they carried (or dragged) me to the cottage. Rumor has it that I even puked on their arms. I just convinced my officemate Justin, a nursing grad, not to pursue a career in nursing. How cool is that? hehe. Thanks God they didn’t take off my wet shorts and brief. haha. I was soaking wet when I slept.


After a 2-hour trip in a bus, we finally arrived at the venue somewhere down the road. LOL. The place was still devoid of people. We immediately did photo ops around the place and just waited for our lunch to be served. We were already drooling when the crispy lechon was placed on the table. After lunch, the drinking session began. Our table was quickly filled with Red Horse bottles. There were games and a lot of fun stuff. 


We also had an acoustic band, composed of my officemates. Emot (another officemate) asked me if I’d like to sing (AGAIN) a week before the outing. I wanted to sing with a band so I said yes. I already picked You and Me (Lifehouse) and Unwell (Matchbox 20). It was too late when Emot told me that the band can’t play You and Me and someone already picked Unwell. Geez, I had no choice than to sing Stigmatized (The Calling) wihout practice. hehe. I knew it! I’ll have problems with Alex Band’s falsettos. haha
After the acoustic jamming, the videoke machine became useful. Some of my officemates became singing superstars. hehe. But they had to leave in the late afternoon, except those who wanted to go overnight. The pool was all ours! We dove and slid and others who don’t know how to swim just stayed at the poolside.


Uhm, I remembered those things? Not bad for someone who got really intoxicated. LOL. I just figured out my drinking resolution. That is, I’ll never drink vodka AGAIN!haha
