To Boldly Go…


Hong Kong Tatler - - Upfront -

2018 Su­per typhoon Mangkhut proved no match for the city’s heavy hit­ters who turned up in full force for the Hong Kong Tatler Ball even though the mon­ster storm was only hours away. De­spite know­ing a T8 was due to be hoisted at around 1am, more than 380 de­ter­mined par­ty­go­ers, in­clud­ing ti­tans of busi­ness, phi­lan­thropy and the creative world, flocked to the Grand Hy­att for the glit­ter­ing af­fair, which cel­e­brated an­other great year for the mag­a­zine, in­clud­ing a mile­stone 500th is­sue. Spon­sored by The Macallan, Chopard, Fancl and The Global Group, the ball hon­oured the achieve­ments of the past, while the evening’s theme, “Sci­ence. Space. The Fu­ture,” threw the fo­cus for­ward. Upon ar­rival guests—among them Martin and Cathy Lee, Peter and Bessie Woo, Yuri and Ju­lia Mil­ner, Chee-chen and Har­riet Tung, Ron­ald and Jo­hanna Ar­culli, and Ti­mothy Fok—were whisked into a fic­tional fu­ture where they ex­pe­ri­enced cos­mic pro­jec­tions, pro­gres­sive plant-based dishes, cut­ting-edge live mu­sic— and, of course, a gal­axy of stars.
