De­spite a hazy, over­cast start to the Royal Malaysian Polo As­so­ci­a­tion In­ter­na­tional League Fi­nal, the show sim­ply had to go on and spir­its re­mained high. No doubt, the Royal Se­lan­gor Polo Club hosted a fun Satur­day af­ter­noon for the usual sus­pects of the Sport of Kings, with BAZAAR in full sup­port, and the ga­mut of the game's most fash­ion­able women in at­ten­dance. La Fa­milia's Datin Nu­rul Husna was spot­ted in the stands, re­laxed, just weeks be­fore her turn on the field at the Malaysian Ladies Polo Cham­pi­onships, where she would trade cus­tom­ary stilet­tos for rid­ing boots.

A penalty shoot-out was car­ried out – with such éclat – to de­ter­mine the fi­nal plac­ings in this year's tour­na­ment. Dato’ Har­ald Link, his daugh­ter Car­o­line, and their Ar­gen­tine pro­fes­sion­als Car­los Pando and Agustin Canale, made up the Thai Polo team that took the tro­phy home this year. It was their third suc­ces­sive year as the win­ning team, and this time round saw La Sarita com­ing in as the first run­ner-up and the Head Hun­ters as the sec­ond run­ner-up.

From the Mag­num ice cream sticks on sil­ver plat­ters to cool things down, to the chic wine bar at the Jaeger-LeCoul­tre lounge as well as groom­ing door gifts from Sothys for dash­ing polo en­thu­si­asts, the day turned out to be a spec­tac­u­lar cel­e­bra­tion of one of the world's most chal­leng­ing games.
