Tai­wan Tatler ball

Hong Kong Tatler - - Faces -

At the end of 2014, the an­nual Tai­wan Tatler Ball brought to­gether a se­lec­tion of stylish so­cialites and top celebri­ties. The ball was themed in cel­e­bra­tion of the glam­orous Belle Époque pe­riod, and the ball­room of the Man­darin Ori­en­tal, Taipei pro­vided a per­fect back­drop for the lav­ish at­mos­phere of the evening. Things kicked off with a cock­tail re­cep­tion, where guests caught up with old friends and shared in the sea­sonal cheer over glasses of Hen­nessy XO and Möet & Chan­don Brut Im­périal. Guests then took their seats for the grand din­ner. The ban­quet’s MC, Ash­ley Liang, in­tro­duced Edi­presse Me­dia’s chair­man and CEO for Asia, Bar­rie C Goodridge, who wel­comed at­ten­dees and launched the mag­a­zine’s an­nual awards cer­e­mony. For the main course, there was seared cod fil­let and wagyu beef cheek, paired with two Napa Val­ley wine op­tions—new­ton Red La­bel Chardon­nay 2012 and New­ton Un­fil­tered Mer­lot 2011. Dessert was a de­lec­ta­ble choco­late tart, which went beau­ti­fully with the Hen­nessy XO. Sa­ti­ated by a splen­did meal, guests then took to the dance­floor and showed off their slick­est moves to the sounds of a live band, with nu­mer­ous peo­ple stay­ing un­til mid­night. As at­ten­dees fil­tered out, many re­marked that this was the best Tatler Ball they’d been to in ages.
