Heineken, Open your City

If it happens that you are a regular drinker, you must have noticed something different in your drink lately. Your Heineken has brand new clothes! 

This is definitely a #throwback post: 
Earlier I am invited to witness the launch of a Heineken's Cities of the World. 

See this bottle? 
I drink it first before you. lalalala. #childish

For the month of August, there will be six specially-designed limited edition Heineken bottles available to you!
Each bottle represents one of six global cities. There are New York, Shanghai, Berlin, Amsterdam, London, and let me proudly present you my birthplace- Kuala Lumpur. 

The aim of this whole campaign is to provide insight and inspire the drinkers to move away from their usual habits and discover more within their own backyard.

A unique code found under each bottle cap of the limited Cities edition bottles encompasses digital activities that help people unlock hidden gems around Malaysia.

On that day itself, a game that fits the core idea of the campaign was launched. Each of us (the guests) have to explore a maze full of surprises awaiting us before we reach the main room.

These are the hidden gems that featured at the Cities of the World launch:
(Photo 1) Paradox CafĂ©, where guests can step out of their comfort zones and pick up some salsa moves;
(Photo 2) Bespoked, tailors from humble beginnings that brought the traditions of bespoke tailoring from London to Malaysia;
(Photo 3) and Replacement, a unique boutique salon where you only get to see the new you when your stylist is done.

(Photo 4) After these three unique adventures, guests were led to the main room where Heineken surprised them with progressive music experiences.
 Not to forget DJ Blink and Goldfish spins on that day. Both them are definitely not strangers to those frequent KL clubbers. And also the girl-next-door Malaysia YouTuber Elizabeth Tan. I've seen her quite frequent in events lately. hmmmm #jealous. Anyway, can check her YouTube HERE.

ugh, so under-dress. I swear I was there after my internship, that's why I look like a slug.

With my crime partner that day. Jean.

First on hand. Amsterdam. 

Met your favorite Leonard Chua from An Honest Mistake.


Due to me being much of a social awkward (Cause I dress like a slug) so I left as soon as the drink launched. #loser.
And also I'm not that fond on beers, heh.
3 sips and I'm getting those red patches. Call me panther, cause I am pink. 

Not to forget for those with a passion for discovery, Heineken has developed a mobile-friendly website which reveals unique locations across Malaysia. This geo-targeted compass gives people a look into interesting locations around their vicinity, enabling them to spark new experiences wherever they are.
