Hennessy Artistry: KWC, Kuala Lumpur (8 Sept)

Many readers will be aware that I was recently invited to shoot at the Hennessy Artistry event at Straits Quay, Penang in June of this year, and what a spectacular event it was!  Now hot on the heels of this event comes a further opportunity for people to party with Hennessy.  This time H-Artistry returns to the heart of Kuala Lumpur for the second instalment of 2012’s Global Art of Mixing Trilogy!  The upcoming H-Artistry party is set to take place on Level 15 at KWC (2, Jalan Gelugor, Kuala Lumpur) and promises an eclectic mix and a phenomenal super-clubbing experience on 8 September 2012.  'Pick of Penang' is delighted to have been invited to attend this event by Hennessy but unfortunately conflicting appointments will prevent attendance at this one :-(   Next time for sure!!!

As H-Artistry zeros in on Kuala Lumpur’s latest wholesale fashion hub, around 3,000 party goers will be treated to a mix of world-class music and the trademark H-Artistry atmosphere. Hennessy promises that both seasoned H-Artistry enthusiasts and new initiates alike will be blown away by a revamped Hennessy 'Art of Mixing Zone' featuring the Hennessy 360 Cam, as well as other interactive party elements, making it one of the premier party experiences this September. 

After posing for a seamless, 360 degree panoramic video at the Hennessy 360 Cam, party goers can enjoy their favourite Hennessy V.S.O.P. long drinks at the Hennessy Mixing Bars, where Hennessy Apple, Hennessy Berry, Hennessy Ginger and Hennessy Soda. As ever the gorgeous H-Artistry ambassadors stationed at the bar will be on hand to assist and serve party-goers and demonstrate the ease of mixing a wide range of traditional and innovative  long drinks. 

This instalment of H-Artistry will be headlined by international vocal powerhouse and EDM (electronic dance music) siren Eva Simons, Jakarta’s cult-status DJ Angger Dimas, as well as Kuala Lumpur’s fast-rising electronic dance nu-breeds B.A.T.E. (Brain And The Eye). The night will charge on till the end with the hard-hitting, hipster-worshipped duo Mr.Nasty & GuruGuru (a.k.a. Bass Agents).

Party goers can expect fist-pumping performances and collaborations laced with powerful vocal lashings from Eva Simons. The songstress is best known for her recent collaboration with Afrojack in the track “Take Over Control”, which has become a dance crossover anthem on dance floors around the world. More to come on the artists who will be performing at this event over the next few days.

To keep up with the news surrounding this event, and for the opportunity to obtain tickets (which are sure to be highly sought after), readers should regularly check out the H-Artistry site.  

Please Note: H-Artistry is open to those above 18 years of age and non-Muslims only.

English Book Fair: Penang Times Square (29 Aug - 2 Sept)

Apologies for the lack of posts lately but I have been extremely busy.  Normal service, as they say, will be resumed shortly.

In the meantime I have been sent some information on the above event which will be happening in Penang at Times Square from 29th August to 2nd September.  Might be a good chance to pick up a good book at a hefty discount (between 50 - 90%).  Worth a look maybe.

Soju Room 'Joins the Pact' with Mika Hakkinnen

Bundled in to this weekend's events, which will highlight with the Johnnie Walker Black Circuit VIP Race Party at Penang Turf Club later today, was an event at Soju Room (now one of Penang's top night clubs) to encourage people to 'Join the Pact', a Johnnie Walker initiative to promote the important issue of not drinking (alcohol) and driving.

The event is nationwide in Malaysia as is being spearheaded by former 'Formula 1' champion Mika Hakkinnen.  Pick of Penang was at the event and a very small selection of images can be found here.

Johnnie Walker Black Circuit VIP Race Party

The time for this much anticipated event is nearly upon us.  Looking forward to shooting this event on Saturday 4 August at Penang Turf Club, more so because I will be with my good friend, KL based celebrity, Leng Yein.

In addition, former Formula One Champion Mika Haakinnen will be at Soju Room on Friday 3rd August publicising the Johnnie Walker 'Join the Pact' (don't drink and drive campaign).  I was invited to a press conference for this in KL on Thursday 2 August but prior commitments made it impossible to attend.

It will be a busy and enjoyable weekend!!!!
