The month of October strikes again, and it is known for one of the world's biggest drinking festival, Oktoberfest! Carlsberg started early this time by having its media launch on the 26th September at La Bodega, Pavilion. Carlsberg brings in the celebration with Carlsberg itself, and also 3 imported Bavarian beer brands, Erdinger, Franziskaner  & Lowenbrau.

It was nice as when I arrived, I was given an Oktoberfest Mug! *some things i like to collect over time* and I was greeted by some cute and pretty Oktoberfest Dirndl girls *to die for* =D These girls were dressed in traditional bavarian outfits to perform the witty "chicken dance" with us

You can see how much fun these mugs are:

Carlsberg stepped this up by bringing in the Oktoberfest Oom-Pa-Pah band and also a 12-foot long alpine horn from Germany which is the first-of-its-kind in Malaysia which successfully made it into the Malaysian Book of Records as the 'Longest Carlsberg Malaysia Oktoberfest Longhorn'.
