I always love doing ‘bar hopping’. I won’t deny, I have experienced doing such when I was in college together with my friends and classmates then.
Bar hopping is really fun. Aside from doing nothing but merely laughing and talking non-sense things, it’s very exciting and enjoyable to meet new friends every bar hopped.
I could still remember the very first bar hopping I had. I was very amazed with the soda siphon used by the bartender to refill our glasses. The soda was looking like almost a torch coming out from the small tube opening of the soda bottle. It even bubbled in the glass and smelled very inviting to gulp. Oh yeah, the bitter-sweet smell of soda that was!
One time, due to curiosity, I was trying to make my own soda chargers. I collected some bottles of old sprayers from the garden. I put water on it and tried to blow some on a glass of water. I did what the bar tender did on the glass – what his position, the glass and the soda siphon to prepare the pleasant-looking soda for us. But I failed. I realized that I was using plain water and not soda. Soda, as I thought of it, reacts when blown through pressure but water does not. Maybe, that was the reason why I failed to make the beauteous bubbles on the glass.
Anyway, I just missed bar hopping and was reminded of it because I recently invited by one of my college buddies to have us a bar hopping again any time this month since the Kadayawan Festival in Davao City is yet to be celebrated this month. There’s much fun to look forward every festivities in Davao which I have been missing the past 2 years since I enrolled in medical school.
The most sure thing to happen? I’ll miss again this years celebration and the bar hopping and more with friends. Too bad!
