So there was this event advertising cheap beer, food and lotsa fun. Takkan I don’t go, right?
Where: Rainforest Ground Floor, New Wing, 1 Utama
When: 21-23 Oct 2005, 5 pm onwards
What: Main attraction is the RM1 coin for a bottle of Warsteiner, exchangeable for a new bottle with your empty one
Why: ‘Coz Malaysians are suckers for unbelievable deals
FA and I reached 1U at around 3 plus, hung out a bit at Starbucks then went to plonk our asses at the venue (next to Cravings which is next to Dome) at around 4. Kiasu mah. The other fella who was supposed to be there at around 3+ was stuck in a jam bwahahahaha!
Then other people start arriving, very difficult to get a table so the management had to source for other tables which took some time, and then the queue for the RM1 coin Warsteiner began to get ridiculous; stretching all the way to Dome ok.
At 5 p.m. the RM1 coin Warsteiner booth was opened for business! Yay!
Of course got people who after getting their first bottle, rejoined the queue, finished their bottle in hand while in the queue just in time for a new bottle when it was their turn again. Ingenious, ingenious, but too bad the very first people at the line could get at most 3 rounds for the 500 Warsteiner bottles were gone in 20 minutes.
While stocks last mah.
The ‘other fella’ joined the queue and redeemed a bottle. Warsteiner not nice also, Hoegaarden better bleh.
There was also assorted brands like Hoegaarden, Budweiser, Lette, Stella Artois and this and that which goes for RM15 per bottle and RM50 for 4 bottles, which you can mix and match. There was one other brand that I don’t remember that goes for RM20 per bottle and RM70 for four, obviously we didn’t get that.
There was also food by Cravings and EuroDeli. Basically Cravings provided RM8 per dish of fried chicken wings (2 per serving so it’s RM4 per wing, SIEN!), fried wan tan, deep fried spare ribs (damn cun, tidak ditanggung halal) and two other stuff that I took no notice. EuroDeli served all the fat sausages and meatloaf and stuff for; get this, RM9 per MEAT! No potato, no this-that, got one bun and mustard and ketchup and stuff, but RM9 per sausage, RM9 per slice of meatloaf, it’s a bit rip-off right?
Sigh, whatever lah, we were hungry.
At around 7p.m. Tv Smith came by and four makes a nice KY-copyrighted collage.
Despite all the not so Germany Oktoberfest Oktoberfest, not-so-cold beer, out of ice fiasco, nothing else but Victoria Bitter, damn long queue for overpriced sausages, 500 RM1 Warsteiner gone in 20 mins, the band playing funeral procession tunes… the company was great so yeah it was fun.
But one time is enough lah. Not going again today nor tomorrow. If you are, good luck, have fun, bring lots of cash, enjoy.
And of course I didn’t forget about the FireAngel Fan Club.
