Carlsberg brings Oktoberfest to town this October! / Oktoberfest Media Launch @ Pavilion

2013-09-26 20.01.49

Ah October is finally here, it's one of my favorite month of the year, mainly because Halloween is coming and I have an outfit already and can't wait to put it on. Just check out my costumes last year : here and there

Another reason is because OKTOBERFEST is here! An annual tradition by the Germans, which is known as the world's largest fair held originally in Munich Germany. But for those who can't fly over to Germany, for the 2nd year in the running Carlsberg Malaysia is holding it's own authentic OKTOBERFEST throughout the big cities and small towns in Malaysia, with an endless flow of beer and fun!

The first party was officiated by Carlsberg  alaysia at Pavilion last thursday. So happens yours truly was honored to be part of the event. Though the 'real' OKTOBERFEST will actually be held at the Old Wing outdoor car park of 1-Utama Shopping center, just like last year. Which will be on the 11th till the 13th of October.

All pictures* were taken with my Samsung Galaxy S4 that night as I've forgotten to bring my Camera out that night.

These parties will come complete with the collectible beer stein (pictured above), as well as authentic Oom Pa Pah band, a record breaking 12-foot long horn, Carlsberg  Dirndl girls as well as plenty of games and online contests where beer lovers stand a chance to take home more collectible premiums.

Before the event me and the girlfriend went to Q Hair Works to get our hair done before the event

Pork burgers and Mashed potatoes mixed with german sausages and gravy, pure glutton! Was stuffing my face the entire night with sausages and beers

They even brought an entire pork leg with a chef ready serving the cuts. Mouth waters thinking back

Oh yes, while we were enjoying our food and beer, there was also the Oom Pa Pah band performing at the stage, which was flown all the way from Germany

As well as the Carlsberg  Dirndl girls, performing the chicken dance

The Oom Pa Pah lead singer was all over the place and standing over tables while singing.

At one point he even cross dressed

Didn't miss the chance to take a picture with him as well as coping a feel 

Enjoying our german brewed beers, there was 4 different german beers available : Weissbrau, Franziskaner, Erdinger and Lowenbrau.

Calvin Khoo, the brand manager for Asahi taught me how to play goldfish :

Caught my first goldfish!

2013-09-26 21.47.22
And I caught another one! 

As you can see, I was enjoying myself a little too much perhaps. 

Getting our couple pictures taken, bad angle. I don't look that bloated IRL /denial
