A few days ago, I answered some of your questions about partying and/or drinking alcohol. Since then, more and more queries got to me through social networking sites and the ever-trusty BBM. Thus, here is the second part of You Asked, Partyphile Answered for the year.
Bo asks: What is your ideal Chill-Out party?
Zhaun answers: My idea of a perfect Chill Out party has all white interiors, music from Telepopmusik, Angela McCluskey, and Frou Frou, lounge chairs, bean bags, and lush carpeting. Also, they have to have light, comforting food items that are easy to eat, and alcoholic beverages that are easy on the palette. It would also be a huge help if they assigned a butler per table.
Sid asks: What piece of advice can you give the youth about drinking alcohol?
Zhaun answers: Stop it! Seriously though, learn how much you can take ad never exceed your limit. Never try to compete with other people because everyone has different alcohol tolerance.
Jon asks: Does partying always need to involve alcohol?
Zhaun answers: Of course not! I’ve been partying without drinking since early this year. If you are in the right company, partying is fun with or without alcohol.
Carlo Gabriel: Do low-calorie alcoholic beverages prevent you from getting fat?
Zhaun answers: If you drink a whole case, then it wouldn’t. As with anything, the key here is moderation. The truth is, any type of alcohol stimulates the production of cortisol which makes you gain weight. But if you had to drink, stick to low calorie beer instead of alcopop which has the same amount of calories as a hundred grams of lechon per bottle.
Bianca asks: How do you avoid bar fights if the bar is full of jerks?
Zhaun answers: Avoid the bar.
BJ asks: What is the best way to keep someone who is intoxicated with alcohol calm?
Zhaun answers: If he gets wild when he’s drunk, I suggest that you take him home. If that doesn’t sober him up, wake his mother up and let her deal with him. If he refuses to go home, leave him at the beer. Sometimes, the best type of love is tough love.
Ezra asks: How do I get rid of my hangover?
Zhaun: Stay hydrated and eat some protein. Scrambled eggs with cheese is probably the easiest to make when you have a hangover and is very effective. Avoid caffeine and sports drinks, wake up at your normal waking time, drink more water, then go back to sleep.
Ryan asks: How do you organize a party?
Zhaun answers: That’s very difficult to answer because I would have to know what type of party you plan on organizing but the basic elements to consider are the: guest list, the food, the drinks, the theme, the interiors, the invitations, the entertainment, the giveaways, ad the program. There are a lot of unique ideas online and a little research can help you a lot.
Diane asks: Do you get drunk faster at night or during the day?
Zhaun answers: It actually depends on where you drink. If you drink in a cold place, you get drunk faster because your metabolism slows down.
