A Visit To The GAB Tavern & Heineken Star Final

So last month GAB (Guinness Anchor Berhad) invited some bloggers to their tavern for a casual gathering, dinner and plenty of Heineken beer of course.

Rain and traffic, just what you need after a day at work.

Rain & Traffic

There was quite a gathering of bloggers already in the tavern (located at GAB along Federal Highway), I was one of the last to arrive. Also there were people from GAB, some from the PR agency involved, the media agency and Nuffnang of course.

After eating we were challenged to pour a beer ourselves, after a demonstration by the pro of course. 2 fingers head – just how it should be.

Beer Pouring

It’s a lot harder than it looks of course, I did work in a bar a long time ago and learn how to pour Guiness properly..but well I’ve obviously lost the touch 😛

Huai Bin demonstrated just how difficult it is by filling his whole glass with foam.

KY fared slightly better, but still not great.

It was basically girls vs boys, and sad to say all the girls did much better than us.

Robb demonstrates again why we should stay in front of the bar and not behind it.

You might remember a while back I wrote about Heineken UEFA Champions League Be Prepared, we were introduced to phase 2 of the campaign called Heineken Star Final.

During the launch of Be Prepared KY and Suanie won a trip to Krabi to watch the UCL final on the beach! Star Final gives you a chance to join them there.

Star Final Intro

The new game is a pretty neat raft racing game where you can team up in fleets and try and get the fastest time to the destination. There’s a chance to win 3 tickets to a viewing party under the stars in Krabi so do check it out!

The graphics are neat and you can communicate with other players whilst rafting your way to the destination, you get points for time spent playing and according to the size of your fleet. You can also customize your raft just how you like.

And well what else do bloggers do after that, take pictures of course!


Me and Kenny, a rare chance to see me in front of the camera. I’m not sure which is brighter, the light bulb or my head..

On another note Heineken will be presenting a series of “A Night in Rome” events this April as a lead up to the UEFA Champions League final in Rome. The events will be happening in Ipoh, Johor Bahru, Miri and Kuala Lumpur. The main event in Kuala Lumpur will be on April 25, 8pm, at the Hap Seng Star Mercedes-Benz Auto Haus on Jalan Sultan Ismail.

Headlining international act, alternative rock/hip hop group The Bumblebeez, will be sharing the stage with KL’s very own LapSap. More at: https://www.heineken.com/malaysia/
