St. Patrick's Festival 2011 @ Changkat Bukit Bintang

Guinness Malaysia hosted the St. Patrick's Festival last night Changkat Bukit Bintang. This is the first time the whole street is close from traffic and the public can literally sit, dine and drink along the street of Changkat. Anyway, had a quick dinner at Wong Ah Wah @ Jalan Alor with my girlfriend Michelle before taking a stroll to Changkat. It's been raining quite a bit lately, but the weather last night was just perfect for an outdoor event (guess Guinness must have hired a good bomoh).

Some simple do's and dont's

I wonder what's the use of this important notice? Firstly it was stated that the consumption of alcoholic beverages is strictly for non-muslim consumer and above the age of 21yo. However from my observation, there were lots of muslim consumers and those who are well below 21 having a jolly good time drinking all night long.

Secondly it also mentioned that No cash transactions of alcoholic drinks on the streets, only in outlet, but the waitress were busy serving Guinness Stout in plastics cups for RM10 each.

My point is why bother to put up such notice when the organizer clearly doesn't have the manpower and willpower to enforce it in the first place. Anyway, the main purpose was to have fun and that's exactly what I did all night long.

I was glad to have went for the event as I meet many of my old friends that I've not seen for ages. One of them is my good old buddy Thompson who was my schoolmate back in high school. Apparently this chap is currently attached with Guinness Anchor Berhad.

I also meet his colleague who is my junior back in the Uni days when I was actively involved in AIESEC the International Student Organisation. Something which I still hold very close to my heart till today.

I definitely had fun meeting with tons of people familiar people on the street yesterday. Looking forward to more fun next year.

Time to catch some sleep. Adios!!
