Black Eyed Peas Performing @ Arthur's Day Tonight !!
It was an honour for Malaysia to host Arthur's Day tonight,25th September 2009 in Sunway Lagoon. The highlight of the celebration is none other then the famous US hip-hop group, Black Eyed Peas. Currently they are topping the music charts with their wicked beats of Boom Boom Pow and I Gotta Feeling. And to mention their latest single titled Meet Me Halfway which was totally awesome !! Taiwanese rapper MC HotDog, MJ116, Joe Flizzow, Reshmonu, Danny One and Man Hand, making up for one hell of a show tonight !!
Malaysia is lucky enough to join cities Dublin, New York, Yaounde and Lagos as a host for the Arthur's Day celebration. Guinness has organised a global celebration for Arthur's Day which starts in Dublin at 1759 GMT on Sept 24 (1.59am Malaysian time, Sept 25) with glasses being raised to Arthur Guinness in over 150 countries.
Also, Arthur’s Day will unveil the Arthur’s Fund in Malaysia, which will be used to enable and empower individuals with the skills and opportunities to deliver a measured benefit to their local community.
The downside is only non-Muslim above 18 years of age will be allowed into the venue. It is learnt that music concert rules disallow breweries or alcoholic drinks makers from sponsoring such events but the ministry relented as the concert is expected to boost the tourism industry affected by the recession and the A(H1N1) flu outbreak.
Thanks to Guinness, we are able to celebrate this 250 years once in a lifetime of awesome night of celebration !!
