Hong Kong Tatler - - Upfront -

As soon as the plates were cleared, award­win­ning cover band Liq­uid Blue fired up. The group, back by pop­u­lar demand, was flown in from the US for the ball and played chart-top­ping hits that had Clau­dia Shaw, Sa­muel and Car­men Lee, and Denise Ho on the dance floor. Ladies swapped their stilet­tos for ho­tel slip­pers, and tum­blers of The Ma­callan whisky were out in full force. It wasn’t long be­fore Peter Cheung and Ben­jamin Vu­chot took to the stage to sing along to Copaca­bana, while Thierry Man­don­naud and Ivan Pun chal­lenged each other to an im­promptu dance-off. Pho­tog­ra­pher Lau­rent Segretier threw a few moves of his own as he cap­tured the fun and frol­ics. His photos can be seen here and on Hong Kong Tatler’s web­site. When the clock struck mid­night, a DJ took over to usher rev­ellers into the wee hours. Mini piz­zas and spring rolls were served, much to ev­ery­one’s de­light. The fi­nal treat came in the form of goodie bags, which con­tained the ul­ti­mate trav­eller’s sur­vival pack: travel adapters from Vacheron Con­stantin, can­dles from Shang­hai Tang and bot­tles of The Ma­callan 12 Years Old Fine Oak. The ad­ven­ture thus ended and the shoe­less, cou­ture-clad rev­ellers re­turned to re­al­ity. An­drew Yuen Kristie Lu Stout
