OK, an all expense paid, 2 week vacation to a tropical location of my choosing with cute cabana boys fetching me drinks in a coconut and fresh seafood on the grill…

You missed:
Big Lamp Blackout
Old Roger

and Miss Claus.

Where are these from and what style are they?

A couple of cases of Pearl (a beer from Texas), a pound of Costco Pepper Cheese, AC/DC’s “Highway to Hell” and 50,000 dollars (US). We Americans are such simple people. :smiley:

BLB - light in colour, mead-ish, heavy honey-like sweetness, v strong
OR - Dark ruby red, bitter with a slightly sweet edge, OG 1080

Miss Claus… also v sweet, but bitter

I’m leaving for California on Friday and was just starting my list of goods to bring back to Taiwan. Cheese is definitely on the list. I’d love to bring some of California’s other fine agricultural products but it’s not worth the risk. But now that you mention it, Tigerman, some good beers might be worth the hassle. The big items on my wish list, though, are a new computer and ADSL, that I’ll get upon return.

Hey MT,

have a good trip,


I ALWAYS bring beer back to Taiwan from anywhere I go. I have never had a problem coming in, even with 12 bottles of different brews.

Its definitely worth the hassle! :smiley:

Well, then. Let’s add 'em to the wish list!

Have an enjoyable and safe trip.


Thanks. I waffled on making the trip but it’s my folks 50th anniversary, so I’ve definitely got to go. Plus it’s always great breathing fresh air, seeing beautiful forests and ocean, and recharging one’s battery periodically.

As for the hassle of transporting beer, I was referring only to the weight and possibility of breakage, but I guess that’s not such a big deal. I’ll contact you Tiger upon my return.

Yeah, go celebrate with your folks. I’m sure you’ll all have a great time. You mentioned that you will be starting a new job soon… so you guys should have lot’s to celebrate. Enjoy!

I always put it in my carry-on. It is heavy… but knowing I cannot get it here in Taiwan, I bear the load, happily.

I’ll look forward to that… and we’ll drink to your return! :wink: Actually, I’m planning a trip to Hong Kong for sometime in the early part of the new year. I’ll be drinking beer there and bringing back beer then too. maybe we could organize a tasting session.

Two cans, per man, per day, perhaps. Vic Bitter.

A skimpy little Miss Claus outfit - Not for myself - it’s better to give than to receive. HE HE HE :smiling_imp:

Does anyone know where I can buy an Elf (sp) costume for the missus? Would love to be more giving myself :wink:, and just the reindeer horns alone don’t do enough. And anyway, if anyone should have a horn, well, …

Somebody always goes too far and tells us more than we need to know.

Way tooooooooo much information


Have a great trip, hope your parent’s 50th is a blast… and when you get back lets go to lunch…


Forget the missus and get a REAL elf! :laughing:

I don’t dare to even contemplate coming in on this one. I wouldn’t want to outrage public morals and risk being air-brushed.
