Arthur's Day Updates

Today's The Star paper has announced that the Arthur's Day Party is now open to all. Meaning to say that the ban on Muslims to attend the event has been lifted. Hooray for them!

What a weird Government we have. Initially, there was a ban on the Black Eyed Peas coming here to perform at this event on the context of this event being sponsored by an alcoholic beverage company. Later on, they decided to lift the ban but bar Muslims from attending the event. Now that they've lifted the ban on that as well, let's hope it stays that way.

The Information, Communications and Culture Minister Datuk Rais Yatim said that "We (the Government, I presume) have no legal powers actually to bar people from attending functions" and added that it's not a problem as long as it's a 'closed concert' and held in accordance to the conditions set by the local government and police.

Again let me reiterate that it will be on Friday, September 25th, 2009, 8pm at Sunway Lagoon Surf Beach and ticket prices will be RM103 but from now until September 11th,
there will be a 10% discount which means it'll be RM93.

Tickets are available here:

still no alcohol serve..wats the use to go

unless it is free flow i will go

i wonder the reason unban muslim in the event is solely due to poor ticket sales

Hmmmm......if really no Guinness is served then it really is not really Arthur's Day anymore.

Anyway, I'm not sure how true is this.

In the can see Arthur's Day signage
But you wont be seeing any Guinness sign at the event.

Goverment does not allow ALCOHOL COMPANY to feature their products in a OPEN CONCERT

hmmmm, I thought Datuk Rais Yatim said it's a 'closed concert'?

Course they won't put it as sponsored by Guinness but there's got to be Guinness sold somewhere, hopefully. >.<
