The Rat is leaving. The Ox is stepping in.

Will we ever bear witness to another bad Rat in 12 years time? I can’t remember the Rat ever nibbling at my psyche. S/he sure is bad.

The closure of pubs has hit real hard. On the upside, it meant drinking more sake because most pubs don’t serve sake. They have no idea what they’re missing out on.

I’m expecting many pubs closure but there will always be new players. I’m hoping these new pubs will introduce sake into their menu.

Here’s a recommendation for your shopping list. It offers a mild fruity taste with gentle sweetness. Kanpai!
