The much awaited day arrives and I was ready to have a blast! Weather and traffic did not hinder me from making my way over to Empire City and it was not a let down at all! I’m already in awe when I arrive at Empire City’s entrance.

The hall took my breathe away. Although from the outside, you see massive construction, the internal transformation is breathtaking! We were hosted in the soon to be Olympic Ice Skating Ring! While we waited for the celebrities to arrive, we were served drinks and canapes.
Fanfare can be heard when celebrities arrives – TBV Artists Him Law, Sharon Chan, Eliza Sum, Mark Vincent, 2AM, Taboo etc.. even more so when Paris Hilton made her way in. Alas I was not able to snap a picture with her as the crowd was too overwhelming. The event started with 2AM performing on stage. They serenaded the crowd beautifully and K-Pop fans went dreamy.
Next up we had Mark Vincent from Australia’s Got Talent. My goodness, they don’t say his tenor is good for nothing. He just captured everyone’s breathe with his rendition of Josh Groban’s You Raise Me Up. I managed to capture a snippet of it (pardon the sound quality).

Later we were treated to another rendition by Mark. This time it’s Beyonce’s Halo.
If you think my night is plain with just celebrities performing on stage, we were treated to more surprises! We were treated to acrobatics show with a hanging violinist, Caitlin De Ville.
Everyone’s attention was up at Caitlin and the four acrobatics dancers which just uses their legs to twist and support themselves with the cloth hanging from the ceiling. Spectacular and mesmerizing!
And there was more! We witness a pair of the fastest painter and yes they finished painting two portraits in 10-15mins? What a way to paint freestyle and I even caught one of the painter doing some jiggle to the music while painting.
Took a break and it was time for the owner of Empire City, Dato Sean Ng to officiate the launch after the earlier splendid performances. Spectacular drum performance and it ended with dragon whizzing above us! I caught it all on video and nearly missed that dragon!

The crowd is now all hyped up and ready to party. Who else you think went on stage to entertain us all?
YES!! It’s non other than Paris Hilton. She was spinning and dj-ing for us and you can see the crowds swinging and dancing along.
Right after Paris, we have Taboo which really pumped and work out the whole crowd. Practically everyone is dancing. Best part Taboo danced with us all too!!
The night then ended with DJ Ken taking over the console and some continued partying away into the night, some mingling catching up, some snapping pictures and for me and my partner, it was time to head home.
We had a fabulous night out and thank you to Empire City for the invitation to Party of the Century themed Glamorous 1920s. It was indeed a glamorous night and best part is I have beautiful memories to keep reminding me of the great night I had!
Ohh yeah! I had a photo taken with Him Law himself! ngek ngek ngek, don’t be jealous! >.<
