I've been looking forward to be merry and Irish. The Collin Farell in me been wanting to come out of the non-gay closet. So I head down to Penang for the much publicized, highly-anticipated event that was the first for Penangites.
I really had fun at the event. The carnival-like atmosphere certainly made the night more interesting. There were mechanical bulls, Guiness bars and food stalls. Although i was hoping that they would serve the famous bread and butter pudding or the blood pudding, that didn't make it to the buffett table for VIPs. The closest the food could get to being Irish was the mashed potatoes. But to be fair, there were Guiness-soaked skewed chicken (yes people....you can call it Satay) on sale to the public, but i was rather full from eating for free at the VIP area.
The event attracted a strong 5,000 revellers, despite the fact that there was a Liverpool-Man United football match. According to the PR exec from Grey, Penang crowd was more than the one in One Utama the night before.
