When an organization claims it’s party to be the Party Of The Century, there are some huge shoes to fill. It’s not an easy feat to go about making the Party Of The Century. It will have to be a huge scale party with the who’s who of the industry, awesome entertainments lined up, and delicious food and drinks – to boot.
So, when the Mammoth Empire City decided to unveil it’s City of Lifestyle & Entertainment through it’s Party Of The Century, it is definitely not an opportunity to pass up for me.
Were they successful in making it a Party Of The Century?
It was quite hard to acquire the invite to the party, to be honest. Had to pull strings to finally get the black card invite in the gold envelope (OK la, maybe I exaggerated a little since there were no strings). But, was really excited to finally acquire the invite.
The theme for the prestigious event was “Glamorous 1920’s”, it took me a few days to look for the appropriate dress, accessories and sponsor to hair and makeup. Flapper style is SO adorable, don’t you think?
Traffic to the event was horrendous – considering it’s a Friday and I came all the way from Kajang to Damansara Perdana (even ran away earlier from work, but still got stuck in the jam).
But once I was in the venue, it was another story altogether. The long feet-numbing drive was forgotten with the grandeur of the event location, which was the Olympic-sized ice-skating rink within Empire City.
There were many VVIPs in attendance (Tan Sri’s, Puan Sri’s, Datuks, Datins, etc) as well as entertainers locally and internationally, such as KPop group 2AM, Taboo (Black Eyed Peas), Paris Hilton, Mark Vincent, DJ Ken, Him Law and other HK TVB artists, Patricia K, Namewee, Adi Putra and so many more.
Not forgetting to mention the absolutely gorgeous cars that graced the ground outside the red carpet entrance.
The party was first opened by K-Pop group 2AM with three of their popular songs before moving on to performances by speed painters, a cirque-type performance with a violinist suspended in the air and a LED dragon drums and dance.
We were then graced by the owner of Empire City, thanking his partners for the trust they had in him and the visions he have in Empire City. Naming the “city within a city” as Empire City (which is a name dubbed for New York City), it will surely be quite tough to raise up to its name but with their combined effort and the trust they had in each other, Empire City was born.
The self-contained township comprises of service apartments, studio office suites, SoHo, corporate offices, and retail outlets. While the first launch of its masterpiece have been a success – a 43-storey building of studio suite blocks with 2 wings, namely Halo and Sunday, we can look forward to more amazing properties and things in Empire City.
It is no coincidence then that when Mark Vincent came out to perform after the speech, he sang the song “Halo” by Beyonce after “You Raise Me Up” by Josh Groban and “The Prayer” by Andrea Bocelli.
And then, the party really got going as Paris Hilton came out to show her DJ-ing skills. I was looking forward to Taboo and his performance though, knowing how pumped up it will be, considering the way Black Eyed Peas always performed and boy, Taboo did not let us down.
By this time, my partner and I was busy jiving on the dance floor, so forgive me for the lack of videos. After Taboo did his thing, it was DJ Ken’s turn to spin out some EDM music to the people on the floor. I suppose the music that lasted “till late” was meant for the much younger crowd.
We met quite a number of friends and acquaintances in this event, some VIPs that we knew from work too. LOL! Yes, Empire City is making it’s mark in the nation, and will be a booming market considering it’s strategic location in the Klang Valley. If you’re looking for property, why not browse around what Empire City has to offer?
I don’t know how others feel of this party, but my partner and I had a really fun time at the party. If you were there, hope you did too!
