Event: Guinness' St. Patrick's Day Launch @ Havana Changkat Bukit Bintang

Last week, I was priviledged enough to be part of the launch of GUINNESS' St Patrick's celebrations at  Havana, Changkat Bukit Bintang. True enough, as we roll into another year in March, the celebration of all things green is back for the 7th year and this year’s GUINNESS St Patrick’s celebrations promises to be ‘March more Fun’!

It will be a month-long celebration filled with fun, laughter and friends with the official launch of GUINNESS® St Patrick’s celebration!!!

The Guest of Honour of the night during the launch was Mr. Shane Stephen, Deputy Head of Mission of the Irish Embassy, giving tribute to the Irish origins of St Patrick’s Day. Apart from him, 150 other guests from the media, trade partners and fans of GUINNESS also joined in the festivities, and I was one of them :D

At the event, Mr. Thum Chee Yuen, Sales Director of Guinness Anchor Berhad (GAB) shared the highlights to this year’s celebration, “GUINNESS has always been synonymous with the St Patrick’s Day. Here in Malaysia, it is no different. In fact, GUINNESS Malaysia was the host of the biggest St Patrick’s Party in Asia last year. This year, we are taking the festivities up a notch by adding a new spin to the celebration.”

And what's so awesome about this year's celebration, is the country's biggest GUINNESS St Patrick’s Pub Crawl! See the big bus behind the revelers? That's the large bus that will bring revelers around town with the black brew on a trip of a lifetime!!!!

Not only that, 200 odd lucky fans and friends of GUINNESS will be able to be part of the largest GUINNESS pub crawl in Malaysia. These selected participants will receive a special St Patrick’s kit consisting of 2 free pints of GUINNESS® and an exclusive GUINNESS® St. Patrick’s Pub crawl T-Shirt. They will also qualify to be part of the St. Paddy’s Hunt.

To help GUINNESS fans and friends Drink Sensibly during the St Patrick’s biggest pub crawl, “Drink Sensibly Angels” will be at hand to provide water bottles and food during the journey, and to share tips on how to party safely.

No, these are not the angels :p
