Panache, glamour and class roared into the Lion City with Johnnie Walker’s Circuit Lounge F1 party and I had the privilege to experience the Striding Man’s magic yet again.
Held at the Flower Dome within Singapore’s latest talk-of-the-town attraction, Gardens by the Bay, Johnnie Walker pulled out all the stops to helm yet another winner of a great F1 fringe event. Join me as we step into the exclusive world of the premium Scotch-Whiskey brand…
The air-conditioned Flower Dome is a conservatory that houses flora and vegetation from the Mediterranean and semi-arid subtropical regions of the world. Such an exotic location to hold a party!
The dudes and their pet… a sort of cat and gorilla hybrid.
Three-quarter pants were frowned upon but Anis got the pass for being fashionably put together.
This is about as close as I would get to the action of F1. Heh heh.
Let’s get the party started!
A massive constellation of small spheres created a curious focal point for the ceiling.
Johnnie Walker’s parties are renowned for bringing in superstar DJs to delight the earlobes.
Cheers to the start of a fantastic night with a refreshing cocktail called Singapore Soda. Concocted specially for the event, Singapore Soda consisted of Johnnie Walker Black Label, soda and a dash of pandan leaf essence that paid homage to our local flavour. The result is a fragrant nectar that’s soothing and addictive!
Three special cocktails coaxed guests to let their hair down and have fun. The Johnnie Yuzu Sour had a tangy, light note that would go down well with people who do not appreciate the taste of whiskey.
Walker Colada brought the tongue on a tropical holiday with a delicious blend of whiskey, coconut rum and I think pineapple juice.
Champion mixologist – Manabu Ohtake, Global World Class Winner 2011, adding a twist to enjoying whiskey.
Guests were dressed to kill and in this case, thrill! Bobby Luo and Ritz Lim adding horse power and a touch of sci-fi to the event. Our pet has been upstaged.
Our pet logging into her Facebook account. Throughout the venue were interactive photo booths where we can have our pics taken and posted directly onto our Facebook pages. Cool!
A photo we took at a booth and downloaded from my Facebook page.
Making a pledge the hi-tech way. Guests can have their photo taken and ‘sign’ their names with a laser wand to make the pact of not drinking and driving.
Guests posing for photos with F1 stars… but where are the racers?
This is my favourite booth where we get to ‘take’ a photo with F1 stars! We choose the scene, pose, and snap!
Desperately trying to be dashing.
The resulting photo. Thumbs up for the fun use of interactive media to engage and entertain.
At the stroke of midnight, a 3D projection sequence and pyro confetti marked the start of Johnnie Walker’s Gold Reserve being served. From this point onwards, the heat of the party got turned up several notches!
The little spheres on the ceiling also came alive and lit up in a rhythmic trance.
Spot the out-of-syncers.
Girl gone wild.
Kungfu duo on the dancefloor.
And I became the pet.
We were Johnnie Walkered and loved it!
