oktoberfest

Yes, it’s that time of the year again! It’s like Christmas for adults. It’s…Oktoberfest!

Okay, maybe that sounded a bit anti-climactic considering it’s the title, but still, it’s great beer, good food, awesome fun – what else do you need to have a blast? It’s a celebration of the amber fluid that unites! :)

Malaysia throws a damned good Oktoberfest bash every year! I make it a point to join in the celebrations each time, soaking up the food, fellowship, and of course, the suds.

The HUGE 1 Liter Oktoberfest Mug that everyone wants will be making a return as well – this time with special Oktoberfest 2011 embossing. I remember collecting all the limited bar editions and the generic ones last year – I still have it! :)

I am also truly excited about sampling the exclusive Oktoberfest beers like Hopf Ice (and others like Paulaner Oktoberfest Bier and 111 Zwickl). Paulaner Oktoberfest Bier is a special brew for Oktoberfest that weighs in at a slightly higher 6% alcohol and I’ve been hearing lots of good things about it.

Enjoy happy hour all night long for any of these draught beers:

  • Tiger Beer
  • Guinness
  • Heineken
  • Kilkenny
  • Strongbow
  • Paulaner

It’s all on draft, at happy hour prices, all night long! :D

penang

However, one thing that I’m doing a wee bit out of the norm this year is to head up to Penang to party! w00t!

Why Penang, you ask?

guinness

Why not? I love the place, it’s the food capital of Malaysia! I can head out for a nice plate of char kueh tiaw (with extra blood cockles, and oh, a duck egg on top) to soak up the nights’ drinking before going for another round the next day!

qeii

I’ll be drinking by the beach in our very own Pearl of the Orient in a next week! I’m celebrating Oktoberfest at QEII (20th Oct) and Golden Sands Resort at Batu Feringgi Beach (21st Oct). Come and join the Oktoberfest celebrations at various places around the country! Check the Oktoberfest FB page for the full listing.

I can’t wait to try the exclusive Oktoberfest beers! Oktoberfest in Malaysia has come a long, long way and you’ll feel like you’re in Munich with all the beer, German expatriates and the oompah band playing in the background.

Where will you be celebrating Oktoberfest this year? :)

    • Hey there!

      Regalia Ritz is in Kampung Nyabor. :)

      Hey, I think this is the second time, we had Oktoberfest in one of the outlets last year in Sibu too. It was at Hijau Lounge @ RH Hotel the previous year if I’m not mistaken – it’s one of the few outlets with Guinness on tap and it had Arthur’s Day celebrations too. :D

  3. Have fun! Don’t drink and drive – take a cab…or wait till you wake up the next morning. LOL!!!

    • Thanks Arthur! :)

      I won’t be driving to Penang though. I’m meeting up with a friend over there.

      Heh! No worries, good advice there.

      Penang is very small anyway, easy to just catch a cab back. :D

  4. Not celebrating cos I don’t drink . heheheheeh

    • Hello Michelle!

      Well, you can still celebrate the general festivities of Oktoberfest! ;)

      It would be fun to head to Munich one of these days and check it out though. :D

  5. I also collect the 1 liter beer mugs. So far i have 2 Paulaner ones… Cheers

    • Me too! I have several with outlet names printed on it from last year (those were really limited edition). :)

      It’s a very good collectible item – everyone wants the 1 liter beer mugs. I gave a couple of them away to friends.

      I plan to get more this year – a complete collection as well. Cheers Eiling and have fun during Oktoberfest! :D

  6. too bad i no fan of drinking.. hehe..
    but would like to own that beautiful mug tho :P

    • Heh! Well, you’ll have to get the beer to get the mug so maybe you should bring someone who drinks with you if you want to collect it. :)

      I don’t mind volunteering bro. ;)

      It’s an awesome mug. I’m not sure if you can get the Paulaner Oktoberfest Bier 1 liter mug at the hypermarkets listed above, but you can only get the Tiger Oktoberfest 1 liter mug at the outlets.
