St Paddy’s Day in Kuala Lumpur

Hey its St Patrick’s Day this weekend and while mainly Muslim Malaysia does not honour the sainted Irish man, some of us do with a couple of rounds at the neighbourhood pub.

Have actually already started at Bulldog’s over in Sri Hartamas but understand the makers of the black brew Guinness have already started promotions across the city.

So this is the thing about Kuala Lumpur, it isn’t exactly a microcosm of the country Malaysia but a lot more cosmopolitan than other parts of the country that is the southern-most part of the Asian continent.

Hence the St Paddy’s day bash and run-up to the festivities.

Which means a lot of beers and possibly some green beers on the side.

And no, we don’t have parades like in New York and some other cities around the world. Just some plain old rounds and rounds of beer drinking with the only clovers provided by Guinness.

What are you doing this St Patrick’s Day then? Come over and get some beers and friendly Malaysian smiles in Kuala Lumpur. Don’t bother about the Tourism Minister as he will be too busy putting his foot in the mouth as part of Visit Malaysia Year 2007.


Updatelah! Guinness is actually having the first ever St Patrick’s Day Parade at Souled Out in Desa Hartamas. See you there!
