Where's the Party 2012 @ Hard Rock Hotel, Penang

So the highly anticipated 2012 event came and went. "Where's the Party?" held for the third time on the 10th and 11th of November and it looks as promising as the epic first party being a 2 days 1 night event. This time around, it was held at the Pearl of the Orient - Penang.

The distinct party series offers young party-goers the ultimate party experience. The mystery event hones in on consumers’ natural fascination with the unknown and challenges the curiosity of those who are bold enough to step out of their comfort zone for greater excitement and rewards. 

The medias and the VIPs gathered at the Carlsberg brewery and get ready to depart through an entourage of buses after breakfast:
It certainly was a long journey ahead as we head from Shah Alam all the way to Penang but not without being accommodated with food on board:
Despite departing early in the morning, we arrived in the evening and close to night time at the registration area which was the area of Queensbay Mall:
This time around, aside from being held in Penang, the difference in this party is that there will be people from Singapore and Hong Kong invited to join as well:
After the mass check in at the area, we departed to our respective hotels VIP style, where we had police escorts to clear the way for us from Queensbay Mall all the way to the hotel!

When we arrived at our hotel (I was housed at Bayview), we were welcomed by a bevy of hostesses with percussionists:
Joey G was there to welcome in the group as well.
Party packs were laid out on our beds which came as a nice surprise when we got in to our rooms:
After a quick freshening up in our rooms, it's time to head to the party site which was at Hard Rock Hotel, the hotel next door to mine.
Since we were there around 6:30pm plus and it was raining, I couldn't check out the games that were setup for the partygoers. From the map that they provided, there seems to be beach volley ball, a tug-of-war zone, and also a limbo rock area where during that time, Twilight Action Girl will spin their hypnotic electro dance beats followed by DJ Nikki before the main party event kicks in at night. There is the iDarts game that lasted throughout the whole night though:

Before starting off with dinner and the main party event, I had a few bottles of Carlsberg to revitalize my party mood:
Around 7:30pm plus, the rain slowed down to a drizzle and eventually stopped and that's where I headed to where the food is at:
Stalls galore with Eden Catering being the provider. Char Kuey Teow, Murtabak, Chicken Rice and many more to satisfy my hungry appetite while over at the main party area, Shawn Lee does his beatbox moves.

Just like the 1st and 2nd "Where's the Party?" event, Joey G and Patricia K were the MCs of the night:
After Shawn Lee, Mad August took the stage and Rubberband with Love Cubic dancers hit the stage after that:
The rest of the line up were DJ Inquisitive, Kelis Rogers and DJ Norman Doray.

The night ended off with the lovely DJ Mayumi on the decks with a strew of popular song mixes which pumped the energy of the night further ending it on a high note:

Most of the night's line up with Carlsberg MD and staff 
Overall, a good party but I still feel the 1st one at Sepang Gold Coast was the most epic of them all. Hope to see y'all at the next one!
