Oktoberfest @ MGS Penang

The largest Oktoberfest in Malaysia is held at Penang’s Malaysian German Society towards the end of every October. Though happening for the 38th year, this will be my first visit. Forgivable, except for the fact that it’s only 10 minutes walk from my house!

I bought the early-bird entrance tickets yesterday (RM25; RM30 if you only buy it this Saturday) and here’s the agenda and food pricing:


  • 7.00pm Arrival of VIPs and welcome addresses

  • Smoked Country Sausage (RM 16 set, RM 9 plain)
  • Chicken Sausage (RM 16 set, RM 9 plain)

  • Roasted Pork with Gravy (RM 20 set, RM 12 plain)
  • Julian’s BBQ Whole Lamb Shank (RM 25 set, RM 20 plain)

All set meals from Ingolf comes with your choice of 3 side dishes…:

  • German Style Sauerkraut
  • Flaky Mashed Potatoes
  • Semmelknoedel
  • Red Cabbage Braised with Apples

… and you can choose between Onion Sauce or Brown Meat Gravy.

Obviously there’s gonna be beer, and I’ll be aiming for some good German beer. No price list for alcohol though, but surely will be available.

See you there this Saturday! It will be a packed day for me, with the ASAP Film Festival at KDU Penang during the daytime. In contrast, that is a free event that you should attend if you have the time. Support local arts industry and learn something at the same time.

Yup! That's what's written in the program booklet!

If you're not a real man, better not let me see you at the contest.
