I am so glad that I went. I almost didn’t go as it clashed with a family dinner on the same day. Lucky for me, the dinner ended at about 10. It took me about 1 hour from the moment I stepped out from House of Udang Galah to the moment I stepped into PISA’s Spice Arena. As thousands were expected there, you can imagine the number of cars that were sprawled around the area. As I arrived late, I had no choice but to park my car 10 minutes away. =(
Arrived to see the customary H-Artistry lighted balloon signage at the entrance.
The very reddish Spice Arena.

Last year, it was amazing! I had so much fun with 24Herbs, Andy Murphy, and the very pretty Julie Woon as emcee.
This year, it’s all the same. Same time, same place. Saturday, 17 May 2014. The acts are :
Magic Power. A group of Taiwanese Mandopop band.
DJ Brooklyn. The Australian EDM DJ.
Imma *Bleep* You Up (IMBYU). A group of Malaysian DJs.
Paperplane Pursuit. A Malaysian pop band.
Other than hard pumping beats, you can be sure of 2 other solid things. One, free flow of Hennessy! Woo hoo! Two, really, really hot chics! It’s crazy but only at a super clubbing event such as Hennessy will you see all the hot girls of Penang come out and play.
Here’s how you can get passes. One, buy 1 bottle of Hennessy and get 2 passes. Buy 2 bottles and you get 5 passes. Or, you could try your luck in trying to win passes from Hennessy’s Facebook page.
08.30 am – Woke up in search of breakfast.
A busy Saturday morning.
Another chicken congee stall.

Hard Rock Hotel Penang will be hosting a stand up comedy show called The Comedy Club Penang this 8th December 2013. Hosted by Matt Belotti, the show will have 2 really funny comedians performing, namely Papi Zak and Gina Yashere. What makes Papi Zak special is that he is from Malaysia, speaks perfect English and has a really good sense of humor. If you are a Malaysian, you will definitely relate to his jokes. Really talented fella. Here’s a video of him in action.
Gina Yashere, however, is an international stand up comedian who has been doing it since years ago, traveling all over the world for shows. The first time I heard her name, I quickly youtubed her out and found her jokes to be really, really funny. I kid you not.
So, if you have the time this Sunday, 8th December, do consider making it for the show at 3pm-6pm in Hard Rock Hotel Penang. It’s RM60 for a drink (wine, beer, or soft drink) and subsequent drinks available for RM10 nett each.
07.20 pm – For the first time ever, I attended Hard Rock Hotel’s Ultimate Foam Party!
This time, the party was led by DJ Faith, the 2nd runner up of Capital FM’s 88.9 DJ Competition back in 2008.
Tickets are sold at RM30nett for adults.

Arthur’s Day refers to a series of music events which were first organized by Diageo, the same company that owns Johnnie Walker, Singleton, Smirnoff, Baileys, since 2009 to promote the 250th anniversary of its Guinness brewing company.
