We love a good shindig, so we asked a few fa­mil­iar faces to re­call the best bash they’ve ever at­tended

One of the great­est par­ties I at­tended was the 2009 Hong Kong Tatler Ball. A high point of the night was when my late hus­band, Al­lan, went on stage to en­ter­tain the crowd with his reper­toire of Elvis Pres­ley. He had just re­ceived the Bon Vi­vant award and clearly was in the mood to cel­e­brate.

My most mem­o­rable party was a han­dover party in 1997 called Cli­max On The Peak. It took place at Cafe Deco and was spon­sored by Dior to ben­e­fit the Hong Kong Can­cer Fund. It was re­ally fun—the peo­ple, cos­tumes, mu­sic, en­ter­tain­ment and show were mes­meris­ing and I can still re­mem­ber all the colours. Be­cause it was a buf­fet, peo­ple were able to min­gle and en­joy the party. To top off the evening, we had the per­fect view of the sky­line to take in the fire­works.

The most amaz­ing party I at­tended was Louis Vuit­ton’s Cen­te­naire Mono­gram party at the Hong Kong Coun­try Club in 1996. It was the first time the coun­try club al­lowed a gala din­ner for over 300 peo­ple to be held on its lawn, which has a panoramic view of Deep Wa­ter Bay. The brand had flown in a Parisian can­can dance group to per­form. The night ended with a 20-minute fire­works show. It was a truly mag­i­cal evening.

The Goldin Group’s 20th an­niver­sary din­ner in 2015 at the Hong Kong Con­ven­tion and Ex­hi­bi­tion Cen­tre was one of the best events I’ve at­tended to date. I es­pe­cially loved and re­mem­ber the fan­tas­tic wine that was served. I dis­tinctly re­mem­ber we en­joyed Pétrus, Château La­tour and Château Cos d’es­tour­nel, to name a few. The theme for the evening was East meets West, and the per­for­mances in­cluded opera singing, bal­let, an ac­ro­batic show and a per­for­mance of a Bud­dha with a thou­sand hands.
