Arthur At Souled Out

Did you guys try out at the venues I mentioned yesterday for a chance to win mosh pit tickets to Arthur's Day?

Well, I did. I gave it a go since I was gonna go there for dinner anyway. And so I headed to Souled Out located at Desa Sri Hartamas to have my dinner.

What's special about Souled Out is not only it's delicious food consisting of Western and Asian choices, it's fun ambiance which enlivens up the place, but also it's FREE valet parking for it's customers! For a location which is always packed and hard to locate parking around like Sri Hartamas, that's a pretty good deal.

I arrived at the venue at 9.45 pm and ordered a carbonara fettucine for dinner with a pint of Guinness for my beverage choice. Although Arthur was supposed to arrive at 10 pm, he only arrived at 11 pm. At that point of time, it was half time for the soccer match that I was watching between Arsenal and Athletic Wigans. There was a short announcement on what to expect before they turned up at the entrance by the DJ.

Pretty soon, Arthur sashayed in with two Guinness girls by his side while he locks on to a target to promote the event. First he graced along to a table next to me and started a conversation with the group. The group having no idea of how to answer some of the questions posed by Arthur ended up with Arthur telling them about the event and what to expect of it.

Since I was the table next to them, Arthur spotting my glass of Guinness sat alongside me and began a conversation.

Sequence to the conversation may not be in that order. Some parts of the conversation are omitted.
Arthur: I see you're drinking Guinness.
Me: Yes I am.
Arthur: Is it your favorite beer?
Me: It's one of my favorite beer.
Arthur: This year it's a special occasion for Guinness. Do you know what it is?
Me: it's the 250th anniversary.
Arthur: That's right and in conjunction to this we're giving out special passes to the event happening on Friday the 25th where Black Eyed Peas will be performing. Are you a fan of the Black Eyed Peas?
Me: Yes, I'm a fan.

Then he goes about explaining that he will ask 5 questions and if I get it right in 119.5 seconds, I will get the tickets. The questions that he asked as I can recall are:
1) Where am I from?
My answer: Dublin, Ireland.
2) Name 1 of the ingredient in Guinness
My answer: hop.
3) Name three artistes performing at Arthur's Day Event.
My answer: Black Eyed Peas, Reshmonu, Manhand
4) Guess how many children I have.
My answer: 5, he said no, a lot more than that. More than 200 years ago they don't have condoms, lol. 250. No, way less than that. 10, double that amount and a little more. 22, a little less than that. 20, a little more than that. What else can it be but 21. (Should've asked who are the 21 kids and where are they from, haha).
5) There are three prizes to the international contest for this 250 celebration. Name one of it.
My answer: Studio.

And that won me a pair of mosh pit tickets to Arthur's Day!!!

Oh, the item in the middle, it's a luggage tag, which they passed out to all the Guinness drinkers there. :)

Now I got more tickets to give out to my friends. weeeeeeeee
