Black Eyed Peas @ Sunway Lagoon for Arthur’s Day!

Nuffnang and Guinness kindly gave me a ticket to the final celebration for Arthur’s Day, a concert at Sunway Lagoon featuring the Black Eyed Peas.

Initially the thought of Guinness, known as an old man’s drink and the hip Black Eyed Peas in collaboration seemed odd. The perception that Guinness is best suited for jolly ol’ men was reinforced years ago when…

I was young(er), partying hard, drinking more than I should. At a friend’s pub in Bangsar, we were hanging out then got into a friendly argument. Something about women being able to drink whatever men drink. In my youthful foolishness, I threw out a challenge to him, “YOU BRING ME ANYTHING AND I’LL DRINK IT WITH YOU!” The older, experienced pub owner grinned, “REALLY?!?”

Me: YES JUST BRING IT ON!
Him: All right!

Out came two bottles of Guinness Stout. I backed down from the challenge before I got started. Thinking back, I could have won it easily… Ah well. I’ll always remember his final victory and wise advise, “NEVER CHALLENGE A PUB OWNER!

It wasn’t long before I overcame my misconceptions and apprehension of Guinness. Smooth, black gold, mmmm!

In spite of my elitist cringing at Black Eyed Peas’ grammatically and structurally incorrect lyrics, I had a jolly great time!

I sang, I jumped, I danced. They were energetic, fun and will.i.am’s solo DJ spot was BRILLIANT! It was a good good night.

  2. I try not to think too much about BEP’s lyrics. It hurts my brain too, kinda like what a week long bender does to the grey matter. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    But yeah, free flow cold frothy Guinness from the tap. To Arthur!

  3. ya wuwu we left early to beat the jam *loser

  4. Looks like fun and I must admit that Guinness does taste good.

  5. BEP’s songs have LYRICS????

    The only way I could have a good time with their music was drinking copious amounts of Guinness. Which I did. The end.

  10. Boom Boom Pow was bad in an addictive way, what with Fergie yelling she’s so 3008 and I’m so 2000 and late(ok, I’ll stop). But I Gotta Feeling was just bad and amateurish, it’s bad bad stupidly bad.
