Brandy- where to buy small amount ?

Postby ozchick » Sun, 23 Dec 2007 4:13 pm

OK found the glace fruit (well as close to glace as I can get). Now the search is on for a small bottle of brandy. I only need 2 tablespoons of this. Don't want to buy a bigger bottle of something I never use. Tried 3 Cold Storages, a Fair-Price. Tierney's at Serini and a 7-11....no go so far..anyone seen those 'little' bottles anywhere ?
Hope you're all enjoying your Christmas Shopping ! Going into Orchard tonight for the 'happy' snaps ! That should be F-U-N ! Hey, join me if you're bored...we could curse and swear our way throught the merry throngs together ! Waiting for replies now..... :D

Gosh, Ozchick. The trials and tribulations in your life.... glace, brandy, what next? :P

Maybe try a friendly neighbour? Just bring a small cup over and smile your way into their bottles...

Oh Ozchick, you should have said when you came to my party - I have about 4 big bottles of the stuff and don't even drink it. You can come and get some if it's worth the taxi fare - you have my number, I'm in this evening (Sun).

Hey there gorgeous ! Nah it's too far ...but THANKS LOTS ! Yeah if I'd been organised earlier....ah well...no use crying over spilt brandy :wink:
Anyway, if you're bored get back to me cos I'm going to the mad place where I'll probably find the entire population of Singapore ! He he... :D
I may find the brandy there somewhere..maybe in the uper at the bottom of Tanglin Mall ...anyway...I'll do a search and if I get desperate I'll get the big bottle...got friends who know what to do with such yucky stuff !

Just saw this or I would have taken you up on the offer, except for the Coffee Bean part. I was in the mood for pubbing tonight but all my friends have grown OLD and didn't want to go with me. Can you believe it?

We could have painted the town red, had a few drinks, snitched some brandy when the bartender wasn't looking, picked up a few men... Oh woe is us, what a lost opportunity!

Oh yeah ! Why didn't I think of that ?! If I didn't know better I'd swear that you are almost as intelligent as moi! Nah..can't be...
Anway...
'Too late', she cried ! My Welsh buddy in condo next to mine had some on hand....yeah...some Pommes are worth knowing..... it's all good ...you can all stop worrying now ! :wink:
Took great photos and had brilliant time in Orchard Rd...albeit in 'fairy-steps'....
