I was so busy in the office when the press briefing for this event happened and I surely regret (bigtime!) not being able to cover it for all the wrong and right reasons. Filipinos and their love for beer just spans years now and celebrating Oktoberfest even if we are in the tropics isn't really quite new to us because we have long embraced the culture, the food and the drinks of their country; a feat that even the Germans know so well.
Oktoberfest for me is quite precious. I know for a fact that this started hundreds of years ago when a Royal couple got married in Germany. A wedding celebration of sorts that since they had so much fun, they made it into an annual treat for everyone!
In the Philippines, its been a long time since we started celebrating the same. Just imagine, they are preparing their mugs over at Sofitel Philippine Plaza as they and The German Club Manila celebrate the "74th Oktoberfest Manila!". This event will happen at the newly -refurbished Harbor Garden Tent on October 19 to 20, 2012. I saw how they built this tent a couple of months ago (beside the bay area almost on the MOA view side) and it looks so surreal now! Just put on your own Dirndl or Lederhosen and you're ready to party!
Sofitel Philippine Plaza even got special room rates for Oktoberfest so make sure you stay a night or two in the hotel and get ready to fill up and start drinking up Germany's best beers, plus the Bavarian party we've all been waiting for!
