Tiger Tiger burning bright..

IN the forests of the night,

What immortal hand or eye

can frame thy fearful symmetry…

The resourceful Travelling Goumet goes to taste a beer brewed since 1932 in SINGAPORE…

MERRYMAKING is the order of the day here at Suntec City Tower 5 where the Tiger Beer Living It Up! bash is in full swing. Free flow of beer and mini Quiche Lorraine, Spring Rolls, Mini Chicken Pies and Swedish Beefballs with gravy were for the lucky ones but walk in guests pay 1 for 1 on Tiger Beer. As a bonus, I am surrounded by pretty curvaceous blue uniformed Tiger Beer-Maids who  ‘gelek’ around with lots of beer on offer…

“Tiger beer or me?” You hope they’ll say. I’d answer, “Both, please!”

The ‘hijacked’ Tiger Beer container filled with models is kitschig. The female models look appetising but the males are somewhat…as what Arnold Schwarzenegger would say: girly men….


The SPIEL for this event was simple:

A gang of 4 had hijacked a Tiger truck filled with 20,000 bottles of beer…the only clue were the coordinates:

1.284274 North and 103.853132 East. Whoever cracked the code got the location and a VIP invitation to the Living It Up Party where I am tonight. When you have navigated the steamy jungles of Brunei and the deserts of Arabia with a lensatic compass, the code is not too difficult to crack. They were the coordinates to 60, Collyer Quay.

What the hell! It is light and smooth Tiger Beer that is the main focus at this “think  out of the box” event. Beautiful leggy girls, beer, canapes under those moonlit sky…what more can a red blooded man ask for?

I asked a youthful Tiger Beer fan, Melvin what he thought:

“Tiger Beer is always refreshing and this event is cool! I have had 7 beers!!”

Being The Travelling Gourmet has its privileges

They closed the re-entry at 21:00 sharp. Alas, I want more Tiger Beer!

Well, till the next big Tiger Beer Bash, I wish you, as the Germans say: “Prost!”
