I've been griping a lot about my job lately, so it's only fair to acknowledge that for all its shortcomings, it also has its little perks.

For instance, by 5.15 pm on Friday, I was comfortably ensconced at Brewerkz, coasting into the weekend on a glass of sauvignon blanc. One of my imbibing companions enlightened me about the brewery's self-styled ludicrous happy hours: all pints go for $3 from 12 pm to 3 pm everyday, which is pretty darned ludicrously cheap as far as alcohol in Singapore is concerned. $3 pints, apparently, make it that much easier when it comes to grading student essays.

Of course, whether having a glass of wine before Pilates class was a smart thing to do --- I think my longsuffering instructor might have a thing or two to say about that.

I hope the alcohol loosened your pen, if not your tongue.

I didn't actually do any marking at Brewerkz that night ... nor did I do any at home all weekend.

I should feel guilty, shouldn't I?

if i remember correctly there's a mexican restaurant (called iguana?) a few shoplots before brewerkz, it did a pretty good happy hour deal- half price on everything before 9pm ... is it still there?

Yeah, Cafe Iguana is still there. The website's advertising the same happy hour deal.

I've never tried the place, mostly because it's either too crowded or else the crowd always sorta put me off. Maybe one day...
