Congratulations Andy! After 9 long years of being together, you finally tied the knot.
The affair took up the entire weekend. The dinner was held in E&O on a Saturday night whereas the ceremony was held the next morning. I know Andy would have preferred it to be done in a more practical sequence but he had to satisfy the whims and fancies of his elders.
06.34 pm – Arrival at E&O’s ballroom and immediately noticed Andy’s unacceptably over-photoshopped studio portraits. Haha.
The wedding shots printed into 3 books.

For the first time ever in Penang, Asahi Malaysia held Club Asahi Miami 2013 in Soju Room Penang. The purpose was to bring the feel and atmosphere of the well known Miami parties to Penang, Malaysia.
It’s cool that Asahi Malaysia even made the effort to decorate the entrance into Soju Room with a Hummer.
09.34 pm – The brand manager for Asahi Malaysia, Calvin Ho, began talking about himself and the goal of bringing the Asahi party to Penang to the media group where more than half consisted of bloggers from Penang and KL. It’s amazing how far bloggers have come to being included as part of publicity for all sorts of launch events all over Malaysia.
The beautiful girls on stage for patrons to take photos with.
We just helped ourselves to the girls.
OMG! OMG! She’s touching my shouldeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeer!

The invites to this year’s event looked so posh. Initially, I planned to bring along a kang tau. However, having a girlfriend who works in the FBI, my plan was eventually discovered and I had no choice but to give the other invite to Vivian. If not, she said, I will lose my left nut.
At about 8.27pm Vivian and I arrived at the entrance to PISA.
We couldn’t help but take pictures with the ballon-like lamppost.
The line into the event was actually quite long but thanks to Hennessy, this time round, I went under the category of Media & Blogger. So I skipped the line and went straight to the counter.

This is how the entrance to Sarkies, right after coming down from Easter and Oriental Hotel’s multilevel car park, looks like.
The sign as you enter, detailing the theme for both lunch and dinner throughout the week.
As today was a Wednesday, it was Carvery Night which focuses on poultry, beef and lamb.
The door stained with the name of the restaurant.
