The Beer Prayer - Our lager, which art in barrels, hallowed be thy drink. Thy will be drunk, I will be drunk, at home as it is in the tavern. Give us this day our foamy head, and forgive us our spillage as we forgive those who spill against us. And lead us not to incarceration, but deliver us from hangovers. For thine is the beer, the bitter and the lager, for ever and ever. Barmen.

How expectations change, when we first arrived in Singapore we were horrified that a cheap drinkable bottle of wine was $20-30 (approx 15 of your currency) at the supermarket a good bottle started around $50. The minimum at a restaurant was $100 and went up rapidly.
Having returned to Oz the prices have become more reasonable
Quaffer approx $10
Good table wine $20
Special occasion $50
And these are generally old world wines as we find the Oz wines too sweet.

I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.
