After the laptop fiasco yesterday and the whole day in front of a screen I wanted to do something different today. Well but I lost a lot of data and all my work related stuff so I had to stay home and do more work shit today. Fantastic. The only time I got out of the house was for dinner. We had below-average Vietnamese food that just added up to the whole day.
On our way back to the apartment I bought a bottle of Siam Sato, a northern Thai rice wine. I knew I had to get it as soon as I saw the illustration of a Thai statue with massive titties pointing my way. All labelling on the bottle was in Thai so I didn’t really know what I was buying at that point. The big 640ml bottle was 35 baht (€1). Super cheap, especially if you consider that the drink has about 8 percent alcohol in it. It would definitely be the homeless alcoholics choice in Germany.
The drink itself was clear with a tiny tiny yellow tint to it. It had a sweet, slightly sour grape-like aroma to it. The taste was, as the aroma suggested, sweet and a bit sour at the beginning. It was ok and nice to drink for the first glass but the second glass didn’t want to go down as smoothly. A distinct rice flavor came to light after drinking it for a while, and you could feel the cheapness of the alcohol since a bit of a discomforting drunkness kicked in. A drink where you get what you pay for, a cheap shit rice wine.
