Last week on 9th April I was invited to the launch of Kirin Ichiban by Guinness Anchor Berhad (GAB) at a Japanese-themed cultural festival at Zebra Square KL.
You can guess it's a Japanese beer by it's theme! Dress code was semi-formal 'Japanese inspired', I really wanted to wear kimono! Last Halloween I actually planned to go as GEISHA! See how much I love kimonos and yukatas?
The whole place was transformed into a Japan food street - there's sushi, mochi, tempura and lots of Kirin Ichiban, Japan's No.1 100% Malt beer. There's also grilled meat but I didn't get to try it! Too many people lined up for it lol. Mind you, there's over 400 guests that night.
Before we enter the lounge, we were greeted by these guys hitting some Japanese drum or something? I searched up, if I'm not wrong it's Japanese Shumei Taiko drum! Dong dong dong!
Here's the 100% malt beer Kirin Ichiban. I must say it has very crisp and rich taste that doesn't leave much after-taste because it's so pure! The Kirin Ichiban was brewed using the "First Press" method which only the finest ingredients are used.
Pretty usherettes with the Kirin Ichiban

Guest of honors includes Makio Miyagawa Japan's Ambassador to Malaysia and Bruce Dallas GAB’s Marketing Director.
Me and my fans! Hahaha, I realized this sentence has many meaning.
I was busy nom-ing all the mochi that night. They taste so yumm! We're also entertained by performances that night which includes Yosakoi dance. I find their costume really amusing.
With the girls. Heh heh. I bet you haven't try the Kirin Ichiban beer! The Kirin Ichiban is already available in more than 40 countries and it is an excellent companion for any type of cuisine. Go get it and try! I find it much less bitter, so if you're someone who can't stand much of bitterness or really like malt beer like me, then who knows this might be your favorite beer?
Kirin Ichiban is GAB’s first Japanese product in its portfolio and it is the company’s first new brand in five years. It's already available in the market! Beer bucket-list tonight?
Okay, so before leaving the place, take some pictures with the lighty background first. I love lights like this! You can see it from the way I light up my room. So in love with light bulbs lol. Btw, photos in this post are all taken by duckalot.com, he's turning into my personal photographer wtf. This boy is so into photography lately. Thankyou baby!
Ending this post with my humble #OOTD . Till then, xoxo!
