WECHAT Nights Out @ Neverland (Plus video of me laughing for no reason)

Tuesday, April 09, 2013

Texting, I do it everywhere...

..And the stage of WECHAT PARTY 2013 was no exception :)

Texter addiction aside, the night started with us first getting trigger happy at  the entrance of Neverland, KL.

Esther Ng, Kevin Shah and I.

For those of you who have never been to Neverland, it is pretty much Thai live band central and sexy table girls earning off bottles.

(Hey, I'm not saying that derogatorily. Rocking live bands and booze can be mighty entertaining.)

However tonight....

..the only pretty girls around were the WECHAT ambassadors, with free smiles for all.

To start, all of us were asked to sign in to the live chat simply by scanning this sign with the WECHAT QR Code Scanner: One of their many interactive features.

For those with no WECHAT yet, no fret,
The service is absolutely FREE and available for all the major mobile platforms.

This 300 million user* text and voice messaging service was developed in China by Tencent International Business, and present for the party was their Vice President, Mr.Poshu Yeung.

I was around for their launch last year (Link here) and this year they were launching their latest  TVC's featuring Malaysia's very own WECHAT ambassadors, Shaheizy Sam and Lisa Surihani.

Take a look, if you fancy :)

Great when international brands make an effort to localize.
Can't say I know who those actors are, but I'm still happy one of our own gets the gig.


Also on show were some Malaysian singers.

Henley Hii and Vivian Chua

And then came the stage games the typical Guys VS Girls style.

Note to Self: Do not pick a table next to the stage and expect not to get guilt-ed into participating.
I'm emcee too, so I totally sympathized with DJ Rudy.

And here is a video of him sympathizing with me when I couldn't even answer what Christiano Ronaldo's jerseys number was.

Warning: You won't understand what's going on and even I don't even know why I laughed so much.

I guessed that Ronaldo's jersey was 7 (coz the girl next to me told me) then changed my answer to 27 (when someone in the crowd shouted it). The girls next to me got an F1 and Audi TT questions.
And I get football?!
 As a girl in the supercar industry - Seriously? I can't even... *face palm*

But at least girls won and got portable hard disks! That's hot.
Hope you like your K POP CDs, boys ;p

Sadly, by the time I was done with games, the only food left was this.

Oh well, cupcakes and cigars for dinner, will just have to do.

To end the night, Awi Rafael belted out some M-pop songs (Thar's a thing, right?)..

..And then came the grand prize games which were so super easy I wish I waited to play it.

Cute dude in the middle walked away with an Ipad whatever and a Hello Kitty Music Dock.
You heard me.
A motherf***ing Hello Kitty Dock :'((((((((

Oh well.
Was still a good night of bumping into everyone from the blogosphere and catching up.
