Welcome to the Friendliest Day of the Year!
I went bright and early to the St Patrick’s 2012 celebration at Changkat Bukit Bintang. It’s my third St Patrick’s Day celebration – to which I’ve rallied every single consecutive year since 2010. 😀
…and guess who I bumped into? Hie Ming, a classmate of mine from Sibu which I haven’t seen since I went to NZ in 1996! A meeting of old friends is always a good portent of things to come.
The street started filling up as the night went on…
…as we enjoyed pints of Guinness on tap.
Arthur’s Lounge – I was quite excited to go in, since someone told me there will be a nice surprise inside. There was in fact, more than one.
I had a go at pouring the perfect pint…
…while personalized Guinness pint glasses with our names engraved on it were made.
It’s like Santa’s workshop for adults! There were heaps of people involved in the making of my very own pint glass.
I can bring this around to pubs and fill it up with the black stuff and it’ll never get lost coz…it has my name on it. It says “Huai Bin”. 😀
There were street performers and buskers and people going around snapping Polaroid photos. It was a very merry experience indeed.
I bumped into Rachel…
…and beheld the wonder of a procession of Harleys driving into Changkat Bukit Bintang with a troupe of performers bringing up the rear.
The night ended with an awesome display of fireworks and I have to say, I haven’t had this much fun since the last St Patrick’s Day. The Friendliest Day of the Year? I would say so. I met old friends and made new ones, and that’s what this year’s St Patrick’s Day is all about! (and also getting into the Guinness Book of Records)
What about the record? Check it out for yourself!
I raise my (currently empty) personalized pint glass in anticipation of next year’s celebrations, where I aim to bring it and fill it with drink. 😀
