Clowns, angpows and beer – Enjoy, Amigos!

Diners at the free 1Malaysia dinner at Pulau Tikus market last night were somewhat surprised to see an unfamiliar brand of beer being served.

A closer look shows that the free beer is a Vietnamese brand, 3 Amigos.

A quick search on the Internet reveals that the beer is linked to San Miguel Brewing in Vietnam.

San Miguel Brewing is of course linked to San Miguel of Philippines, which in turn has a stake in Petron. Petron now has a presence in Malaysia.

These names should be very familiar to many Malaysians.

Meanwhile, lucky draw numbers were called but to be eligible to claim the prize, the winners were supposed to be wearing the 1Malaysia T-shirts. Some bright Penangites resorted to wearing a 1Malaysia T-shirt on top of their shirts. In the true spirit of solidarity, some of those who wore these T-shirts or had an extra one sportingly lent their T-shirts to those whose numbers were called but who didn’t have the T-shirts on. T-shirts were hastily worn by the grateful winners before they went up to claim their prizes.

A blog reader of mine who was carrying a can of beer asked another diner, “What does it taste like?”

“You have a can there,” the diner replied.

“I haven’t tasted it yet,” said the blog reader.

“Well, it’s free,” came the response, implying you can’t complain about the taste.

As for entertainment, apart from female dancers prancing around, a clown was spotted juggling balls to entertain the diners. Perhaps a suitable future candidate for a career in Malaysian politics?

The current topic of discussion in coffee shop is that rakyat will have to ‘pay back’ big time after GE13 should BN returns to office since so much money has been spent on goodies and election propaganda/banner etc. Be very afraid!

These so called Pakatan supporters are such hypocrites (munafik).They scold the BN online but got the audacity to take free food, lucky draw and T Shirt. Anywhere with Ubah, ubah kepada negara Islam. The end of all the salacious Getai, drunkedness. It seems like Penang looks like the Isrealites escaping from Eygypt and acting in syirik manner. Like dancing around the golden bull. Syirik!

“If u drink Amigo & pump Petron then u are definitely support BN & u are 1Lubang with them. ”

That is extreme and stupid opinion. Typical childish attitude of rocket chauvinist supporters. The idea of boycott is not going to work. Are you going to boycott RICE and thus stop eating any RICE from now on ??? Come on. Walk to talk, small kid !!!

p/s: By the way, do you know what is “1Lubang with them” ??? What is my crime as a consumer ???

One type of Rice feeds hundred type of peoples. I’m not sure what your parent has feed u that produced such a useless u. Maybe the type of rice u taken not really make your eyes open to tell right or wrong / black or white / dirty or clean / justice or injustice since u were borned.

Even a 3 years old kid knows We change government @505. Go home ask your kids and learn from them. Still not too late to reform yourself to a useful & responsible Malaysian & father.

UBAH !! 505 We change Government.
