You can get a Cooper brewing kit in Singapore iBrew and bring it back. Though, the tank is massive!
Lou, see if you can free some space in your suitcase for your hubby's brewkit!

I'm not very keen on the stuff to be honest, but like to keep a few cans in the fridge in case of unexpected visitors

Just an observation.... I was in Tesco today and I thought I might buy a pack of beers, but where have they gone? I went down the aisle marked "bir". Nothing. Not a can in sight. Has Tesco stopped selling beer?

I also noticed in Cold Storage t'other day that the packs of beer were an outrageous price. Admittedly I haven't bought any for a while but I seem to recall paying RM 30 or thereabouts for a pack of 6 cans. And I was seeing upwards of RM 43. What's going on?

First test match just starting from Headingly...............YEAH a beer is an excellent plan. Good few hours sat down for the next 5 nights.

Shop around everywhere to find Tigers for well less than 40RM one of the shops usually has them on offer. Tesco has gone nuts recently.
Strangely the cheapest I saw was 99 Speedmart I think around 32 for 6 Tigers.

That should be the price to pay for sure................dunno who buys 6 packs BUT sometimes its cheaper per can in six packs as opposed to 24's in Tesco...........Bulk buy does not always work here.
Single cans in my small shop last week 5.35 ..........24 for 132!!.. Tesco wanted 184 approx. and 42 for 6 No Logic.

That's an easy one. BakedBean. She's a smart lass. Knows that six packs are often (almost always) a better deal than 24's. Especially in Tesco where they can't add up. So that's no six packs of Tiger and no Fat Bird to be found in Penang whenever there's a deal on, unless you can beat BB to it.

Always nice to walk into a bar and announce "I could murder a large tiger".

Can't believe it's been two years since!

I'll be in Hubba Hubba Mont Kiara for a beer this evening - then probably head to that Irish pub in Publika.

Hit me up if you're in the area!

Hi BB,
I went to Tesco Tanjong Tokong Penang today. The beer has been moved to the ‘wine department’. The whole central aisle/display unit of the wine department is now just beer. I guess that means there’s even less wine now.

Gosh I bought a six pack of beer today and it was only RM 31.90. Looks like the reason for moving beer into the wine section is that you now have to pay for beer in that section (along with the wine and pork). So, no more paying for beer at the general check-out. That's what the lady told me
