One of the perks of being a blogger these days apart from being given free digital cameras to use and free food is being invited for exclusive invitation-only events and… FREE BOOZE!!!
Last week, I was at Velvet for Heineken’s launch of is Extra Cold beer.
Now I know you’re all probably wondering what the hell I’m talking about since beer is BEER… and is always cold anyway right? (I pity the fool that serves WARM BEER).
Well this beer is a little different.
First off, while normal beer is chilled between 4-5 degrees Celsius, Heineken’s “Extra Cold Pint” is chilled between 0-3 degrees Celsius. And yes, the few degrees of “coldness” does matter.
For one, the extra cold beer tastes a lot less bitter and a lot more icy and it gets you high equally as fast, kinda like having your cake at the same time and eating it.
As usual in every beer launch event there is always the “BEER GIRLS”… well-dressed and sexy girls serving beer. The ones at the event weren’t like the ones you see at wedding dinners with nylonish clothing but were instead dressed in little white hoods like this.
Damn cute right!!!
If I weren’t so distracted by the booze I probably would’ve made a fool of myself trying to hit on them.
Anyway, the event started off with a short speech, a video to educate us on the difference between Extra Cold beer and normal beer, a quick performance but was very quick to move on to the drinking part where everyone got their bottles together to Yam Seng!
I wasn’t the only blogger invited.
Suanie, Fireangel, Shaolintiger and Kimberlycun were there with me.
Shaolintiger isn’t in any of the photos I have on this blog because well.. he was the one taking the photos.
Kinda sad huh, being the designated photographer of the night… kinda like being a car valet… you get to drive the Bentley but all you get to do is park it.
Shaolintiger took this picture too, which was why he’s not in it.
If you’re a Nuffnanger, pay attention to the guy on the most left right beside me.
His name is Desmond and he is the ONE that gives you all your ads!
Well okay not ALL your ads, but a LOT of your ads so if you ever bump into him in The Curve or something, make sure you go up to him and say
“DESMOND!!! TODAY YOU LOOK SO HEMSEM!”
Anyway, the rest of the night was wonderful partly because of the beer and partly because of the company.
I even met a particular celebrity there. Joey G from Channel V.
Towards the end of the night and with a little booze in her blood, Kimberly got high enough to drag me on the dance floor to dance with her.
Now everyone who has been clubbing with me before knows that I lurrveeeee to dance.... not that I dance particularly well but I just love dancing to let lose every weekend.
That being said, I wasn’t quite feeling it that night partly because all our Nuffnang clients were there and the last thing you want to do is make a fool of yourself in front of them :P
All my reasoning and begging Kim didn’t stop her until I finally gave up and she scolded me for not being sporting.
The night ended not too late for us since we all had to go back to work the next morning. I really really really enjoyed taking the night… nothing like having good beer with good company.
Plus I really enjoyed the beer they launched. Whoever knew that drinking beer that was chilled just a few degrees colder than the average beer would make such a difference.
Maybe it’s just one of those little things in life where small changes have big impacts.
