Asean Jazz & Percussion Festival at SOULed OUT, Desa Sri Hartamas

I was invited to the Asean Jazz & Percussion Festival which was held at SOULed OUT, Desa Sri Hartamas from 19-20th September, 2015. Somehow I only able to attend on the second day but the shows and performances were pretty good and interesting.

Rihanna Reveals the Debut Puma by Rihanna Footwear Collection

PUMA Women’s Creative Director and Brand Ambassador, Rihanna, and Global Sports Brand PUMA kick off their first venture with the release of the PUMA BY RIHANNA Collection under Rihanna’s FENTY label. Under her creative direction, the first collection introduces the PUMA Creeper, remixing the iconic PUMA Suede with a little bit punk and a little bit rebel.

The PUMA Creeper harnesses the music and fashion feel of the revolutionary punk era with PUMA’s deep sporting heritage. Punk lit the streets bright on King’s Road in London and it soon caused a stir in the late 80’s in lower Manhattan’s underground club scene. The clubs have since closed but the culture never left, influencing the city’s fashion and music scene for years to come. That is the inspiration behind the PUMA Creeper.

Hennessy V.S.O.P Presents Ultrabeat @ SOJU, Sunway

Late last month, I was invited to Hennessy Ultrabeat which was held at SOJU, Sunway. Hennessy V.S.O.P took the nightlife scene up a notch once again, as it recently introduced partygoers to the Hennessy Ultrabeat platform. I was pretty excited when I found out that Danny Avila will be spinning at the event. After several cancelation of events, it wasn't easy to experience a good EDM party.

Tiger Radler Picnicarnival on the Rooftop of Avenue K

I was invited for the Tiger Radler Picnicarnival on the 22nd August, 2015. Tiger Radler held the picnic and carnival infused party for the outdoor-loving fans on the rooftop of Avenue K. Inspired by the breeziness of picnics and magic of carnivals, Tiger Radler fashioned a refreshing outdoor party that married both elements. 

Called ‘Picnicarnival’, the pop up party held at the rooftop of Avenue K astonished the attendees with a picnic styled carnival fanfare that came packaged with stilt walkers, jugglers and unicyclists amidst several game stalls. Tiger Radler premiums such as Pop-Up Party stickers, T-shirts, koozies, notebook, huge soft toys, or even Tiger Radler six pack cans were some of the prizes guests won at the pop up arcades. Below are some of the pictures taken at the event.
