The Best Guinness In The World Out Of Irelend

I’ve not been out drinking for a while especially since I’m retired from clubbing. But last Friday, Charlotte The Clown was in town and we went for dinner and drinks at The George and the Dragon. Food was okay (except for Paul’s pie which he said it’s horrid so I didn’t even try it) and the Guinness was so-so but the environment was pretty nice. Very English indeed. And we were seated outside at the balcony which added to the environment for al fresco drink and chats. I even bumped into Chetan who promised to organized drinks the following weekend since we've been saying this for the past 4 years.

And on Monday, Sue Ann and I met for lunch. We’ve not met in months so it was a catch up session for us. We wanted to eat pasta so she looked for a random Italian restaurant on the net and made a reservation for two. We both arrived in Taman Tun at the same time and were driving round looking for the place but to no avail. So we said screw it and I brought her to Sid’s bar. Good old Sid’s place. Good food, good drinks and always a friendly Sid to greet us. I had the Full English Breakfast and she had the Pacific Cod and Chips (together with mushy peas!.... which we both didn’t like the taste of but liked the concept of) which was totally yummy.

Then we went back to work which is never fun.

And at night when Paul and I were having dinner at The Curve, Sue Ann calls and said that she’s in Sid’s ….. again! She liked it so much that she brought a friend there so Paul and I joint her for a pint of Guinness.

Sid was there as usual and come over every now and then, bought us a round, told a joke, left us in hysterics (volume of laughter increases according the number of pints consumed) and walked away!

It’s a joke I’ve heard before but it’s still funny! Or maybe it’s the way Sid tells it.

Here goes.

There's a big conference of beer producers.

At the end of the day, the presidents of all beer companies decide to have a drink in a bar.

The president of Budweiser orders a Bud and the president of Coors orders a Coors.

Then the waitress asks Arthur Guinness what he wants to drink, and to everybody's amazement, Mr. Guinness orders a Coke!

"Why don't you order a Guinness?" everyone asks.

"Naah. If you guys are drinking soft drinks, so will I”

(Sid walks away and we continue to laugh and continue our conversation while drinking more Guinness).

He comes back and tells us that Guinness Anchor Berhad Malaysia won the award of the best Guinness brewed out of Ireland. And everyone started saying that Sid’s pub has the best Guinness in Malaysia.

So doesn’t that make the Guinness’ at Sid’s the best in the world out of Ireland?

I sure agree. Go try it for yourself:
