Press launches on yachts are getting popular these days, aren't they? Nevertheless every trip like this is a thrill for me; I get to escape from my busy schedules for awhile.
Guinness Arthur’s Day is back - bigger and bolder than before but only this time, it's going to be a MONEY CAN'T BUY experience.
You'll have to WIN it.
Are you bold enough to party with Guinness this Arthur’s Day™?
I heard a YES!
Then let's Go!
I HAVE to show you around this yacht -- the BIGGEST I saw at ONE°15 Marina Club that day.
Quick Tour Starts NOW!
NOTE: You can't wear any footwear on board this yacht.
This is the first deck you'll walk up to:
Let's grab a bottle of Guinness before moving on:
On the same deck, you'll enter the first air-conditioned area - a big, cosy living room:
Walk along the right side corridor and it'll lead you to the master bedroom which comes with dual toilet seats, basins, shower heads and a bathtub!
Go one deck DOWN and there'll be 4 more bedrooms waiting, all of which have their own personal bathrooms.
Now let's go up!
In the higher deck, you'll find another 'living room' where you can watch TV, soak yourself in an outdoor jacuzzi or simply chill out in the outdoor area.
Christina and my reflection on the window panel:
Our yacht tour is happening while the yacht cruised along the beautiful coast of Singapore.
There's one more deck, the highest one.
We'll come to that in no time~
SUPER ATAS, I Know Right.
Guinness unveiled plans for its second Arthur's Day celebrations in Singapore
Let's head back to the main deck where Guinness unveiled its plans for its Second Arthur's Day Celebration in Singapore.
This year, Singapore will host the boldest Arthur’s Day™ party ever, featuring Grammy nominated, chart-topping international band, The Fray, alongside one of Singapore’s best up-and-coming bands selected through a unique competition on 27th September 2013.
The Arthur’s Day celebrations were first organised in 2009 to coincide with the 250th anniversary of the signing of the lease at St. James’s Gate in Dublin, Ireland – originally signed by Arthur Guinness in 1759. It is estimated that about 1.7million Guinness fans and music lovers, from over 55 countries, will unite to celebrate Arthur Guinness' Legacy!
Its main event will be held on 27th September 2013 with TWO highlights.
HIGHLIGHT 2: A LOCAL BAND will be selected to open the Guinness Arthur's Day concert for The Fray!
Local Musicians and Bands, it's OUR call~
Do you want to be that ONE BAND who will open the Guinness Arthur's Day Concert for The Fray?
You're invited to submit a YouTube Video link of yourselves performing, in a private message to the Guinness Singapore Facebook Page by 17th August 2013.
Shortlisted bands will then be move on to the 'Play On The Day' round - a battle of the bands event held at four locations around the island from 7PM to 9PM on:
