Malaysia’s Own Oktoberfest @Berjaya Times Square

[ADV]

Malaysia’s Own Oktoberfest is here! Who is excited like me!!! I attended the launch of Malaysia’s Own Oktoberfest on 26th September in Hakka Restaurant, and I can’t get enough of it! Went to the second one in Berjaya Times Square Hotel on the next day muahahaha some called me crazy but this is how I rolled :D

What is “Malaysia’s Own Oktoberfest 2012”? It is presented by Carlsberg Malaysia to enable consumers to experience first-hand the authentic German beer drinking festival locally, which runs from September 26 to October 7.  This is also their first time extending this to the East Malaysia. Eh I heard that East Malaysian are really good drinkers. How I wish I was there to party with them! I want to experience it!

Last year they had it in the same venue ( click here to read ), it was a blast! I am glad to tell you all that this year in Berjaya Times Square, it was even better than last year!

Let me brief you about Oktoberfest..

Oktoberfest, or Wiesn, is a 16–18 day beer festival held annually in Munich, Bavaria, Germany, running from late September to the first weekend in October. It is one of the most famous events in Germany and is the world’s largest fair, with more than 5 million people attending every year. The Oktoberfest is an important part of Bavarian culture, having been held since 1810.

Crown Prince Ludwig, later to become King Ludwig I, was married to Princess Therese of Bavaria on October 12,1810. The citizens of Munich were invited to attend the festivities held on the fields in front of the city gates to celebrate the happy royal event. The fields have been named Theresienwiese (“Theresa’s meadow”) in honor of the Crown Princess ever since, although the locals have since abbreviated the name simply to the “Wies’n”.

A special promotion to commemorate the event has also been launched where consumers can take home a limited edition Oktoberfest beer stein when they take part the promotion at participating outlets. Do you like it?

This party have a few highlights including authentic Umpapa band from Germany

Carnival like atmosphere is what I like the most. Unlike the usual party, this is more to chill, and I see happy people with their beer mug everywhere. One said to me: Wastage of beer is totally banned in here XD

467694_434261556620317_1244840968_o

I think this lead singer of Umpapa band sure feel very bliss that he can work in this kind of environment. Is party, drinking while working!

I have to say I enjoy eating the pretzel( the real one la of course wtf) while chatting with friends. It is kind of addictive and goes so well with beer due to its saltiness

So Andy took a photo of her also. And thats how we started talking. I asked her, How’s the party? Did you enjoy it? She gave me a big thumbs up :)

Malaysia’s Own Oktoberfest @ Hakka Restaurant

[ADV]

Malaysia’s Own Oktoberfest is here again! I still remember there were so much fun last year hence this year I am not going to miss it either teehee.

209373_434240543289085_63640046_o

You might be wondering what actually is “Malaysia’s Own Oktoberfest 2012”. It  is presented by Carlsberg Malaysia to enable consumers to experience first-hand the authentic German beer drinking festival locally, which runs from September 26 to October 7. So you know what are you supposed to do? Check out the venue and join me in the next party!467677_434237633289376_1308916808_o

a keg was rolled out for the first “tapping” of beer as traditionally practiced at the centuries old Bavarian Oktoberfest in Munich to officiate the launch of “Malaysia’s Own Oktoberfest 2012”.

219122_434252629954543_1776391994_o

This time the launch is very unique as it is held in a Hakka Restaurant. So we had our ice-cold beer with authentic Hakka food! Surprisingly they matched well! Guests were feted to a specially prepared Oktoberfest cuisine with a Malaysian twist that is the sweet and sour pork knuckle. Everyone loves it *yum*

194087_434238549955951_2022484828_o

One of the highlight of the party is the chicken dance! The music is so addictive it stucked in your head forever. and i just want to dance when I hear it!

193088_434243653288774_145430726_o

I am surprise to see German Chef Jochern Kern did a demo cooking Oktoberfest platter named “Puten Geschnetzeltes Mit Spaetzle” and MD of Carlsberg Malaysia Soren Ravn and GM of Luen Heng F&B Sdn Bhd took the stage to make sausages on the spots with the help of 10 ravishing Miss Universe Malaysia Finalists 2013. Do you see this in normal party? No you don’t. But I get to see it here! It is really interesting201439_434242749955531_943223091_o

Another highlight  of the party is the authentic Umpapa band from Germany which made the party getting higher and higher.

332525_434252793287860_410767218_o

Look who is performing ! Carlsberg Managing Director, Soren! I tell you, he can rap well :)

Beers available at Malaysia’s Own Oktoberfest

Carlsberg (5% ABV/ alcohol), a lager beer founded by J.C. Jacobsen in 1847 and is an international beer originating from Denmark.

Erdinger Weissbier (5.3% ABV), pioneered in the 70′s, was the first German wheat to be distributed nationwide in Germany. Erdinger is brewed according to traditional recipes and has no preservatives, additives and pasteurization, complying with the Bavarian Purity Law 1516.

Franziskaner Weissbier (5% ABV), a traditional Bavarian wheat beer with more than 600 years of history, is refreshing and aromatic in character. This Bavarian beer is naturally cloudy and copper-coloured and enhanced with a sweet malt taste with a smooth creamy texture for finish.

Lowenbrau, (5.2% ABV), an original “German Munich Beer”, is famous at Oktoberfests. It is a lager beer that is refreshing with a taste of malt and mild hop bitterness. The beer is light to the taste, bright golden yellow in colour, and truly complements the Bavarian drinking experience.

54039_434250089954797_1529858231_o

Before I left, I checked my alcohol level. It is just a simple procedure and you can know if you are fit to drive home or not. Always remember to enjoy responsibly!

Had a small chat with one of the participant, Sherry randomly. She said she enjoy the party pretty much with the companion of her friends and this is really a different experience of party for her. I will say, yes this is something new for me too :)

258852_431053090274497_1203564307_o

Was very happy get to go for this food review in Grand Palace, Pavilion for Imbi Group Relaunch.  

“Earlier this year, we closed down our outlet on Jalan Imbi to make way for the development projects in the city. This was our first outlet, the place where it all started, and we were leaving. Imbi Palace Restaurant would be gone forever. This is why, after some thought we decided to change our company name to the Imbi Palace Group.” said Mr. Lum during his speech.

menu of the night

265322_431055090274297_598726413_o

Double Boiled Cordyceps Flower with Top Shell & Fish Maw (RM28.00)

‘This starter  is a very healthy and nutritious soup. It helps improve skin complexion, nourishes our Yin, and cleanses our kidney.’ I feel very 补 after drinking it wtf.

621698_431055883607551_1970519402_o

Crispy Golden Peking Duck (RM70.00)

‘This dish is appreciated for its thin crispy golden skin with just the right amount of meat. To enjoy this dish, take the skin and meat, add some scallion and our specially prepared hoisin sauce and wrap it in the home-made thin pancakes called Momo at your table. If you do it right, when you bite into it, the juices from the meat will trickle between your finger tip. ’

I like this cause the skin is very crispy. I am never a fan of meat but I think this one is just nice.

326862_431056806940792_775801814_o

‘This dish is appreciated for its thin crispy golden skin with just the right amount of meat.

this is how u eat it. wrapped everything with a skin then put it into your mouth. yummm

tadaa like that. wah whose finger is this so nice one

476551_431057770274029_585345826_o

Pan Fried Stuffed Scallops (RM14.00)

‘We chose the finest scallops from the icy cold waters of Canada. This is combined with Banana Prawns from the Gulf of Carpenteria. The scallops are stuffed with fresh prawns to create two distinct flavors and aromas. ‘

i like this!the juiciness and sweetness.. ohmaii

 

272066_431057910274015_552410622_o

8 Treasures Truffles Chicken (RM80.00)

‘For this particular dish, the chicken is prepared by stuffing 8 different types of mushrooms that has been infused with truffle sauce. The entire chicken is hung up to roast to bring out the rich flavor of the chicken meat while maintaining a crispy skin on the outside. Due to the “hanging”, you will notice that the neck of the chicken is longer than usual, and that is how the name, Kookoo chicken comes about. ‘ I don’t really like the chicken though.. I only like the mushroom inside

327956_431058330273973_428762628_o

BBQ Broiled Spanish Pork Ribs (RM158.00)

‘The ribs are from the Spanish Iberian pig, which is known for its nutty flavour, and its delicate melt-in-your-mouth marbling. The Iberian pig’s diet of acorns gives it a uniquely tender, rich and rosy meat. ' it is a bit salty for me but it is supposed to be complemented by the salad given. i can see everyone enjoy eating this very much.

201498_431061603606979_356656586_o

South African Dried Abalone (Promo – RM 88.00 per piece)

‘Our next dish, the South African Dried Abalone looks like a golden ingot that signifies wealth and prosperity. Harvested from the unpolluted seas off the coast of Hermanus, the quality of the abalone is assured because we follow international Food Safety methodology, that is, the HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points), in its preparation process. Notice the texture of the abalone is sticky, rich and chewy.

The word 18-head is a measurement unit in Chinese kitchen for the size of the abalone. This means you get 18 pieces per 600 gram – which is a very large abalone.’

Pretty excited when I see this. But it is not really as good as what I expected. The abalone itself is very tender and nice. But I dont fancy the sauce. A bit too gravy for me

620740_431063263606813_153074248_o

LanZhou Knife Shaved Ramen (RM10.00)

‘This is a delicacy from Lan Zhou, GanSu, China and is a heritage food enjoyed for generations. The Ramen is shaved off a ball of dough and as such none are identical. Today’s Ramen will be served in a pickled vegetable soup. ’

265730_431063580273448_1627015439_o

this is good. very China feel. and i actually crave for more

330997_431063710273435_2051049642_o

Braised Noodle with Duck Meat (RM18.00)

‘Peking duck is generally served in two different styles, the first is the crispy duck we had earlier and the second where the duck meat is braised with noodles. ’ i didn’t try this as i am too full at that time =.=

258014_431064370273369_1309241793_o

Coconut Pudding (RM8.00) my favourite! the coconut taste in the jelly is so nice! then the flesh is quite fresh too. love this love this love this
