Alav­ish event marked the of­fi­cial re­launch cel­e­bra­tion of JW Mar­riott Kuala Lumpur re­cently. Guests com­pris­ing cor­po­rate ti­tans, diplo­matic heads of mis­sions and friends of YTL Group of Com­pa­nies’ di­rec­tors sat down to an ex­quis­ite din­ner of Maine lob­ster bisque, crab Ag­nolotti, scal­lops gar­nished with os­se­tra 76 caviar, poached sea bass and tiramisu. A cheery open­ing speech by Arne Soren­son of Mar­riott In­ter­na­tional was fol­lowed by an equally good- hu­moured one by Tan Sri Dato’ ( Dr) Fran­cis Yeoh, who re­called a mirth­ful in­ci­dent when host­ing oper­atic tenor Lu­ciano Pavarotti. The even­ing saw a cameo by R&B singer-song­writer and mul­ti­ple Grammy-award win­ner Eric Benet and the even­ing segued into a high-oc­tane fi­nale with the dance-in­duc­ing mu­sic of Abba by trib­ute band Bjorn Again.
