Puma Crossover Party! Win tickets to the Puma Finale Party!

 photo DSC_0824_zps5ff9e5fc.jpg

As Suede is taking over everything, Puma had its first Crossover Party! If you're wondering what's Crossover? its actually a designer shop located at Sunway Pyramid, which sells high end Puma Shoes such as the Puma Black Label, Alexander Mcqueens and much more!

Being an enthusiastic Puma fan, I headed over there with Ee Laine, as this is her first event she's heading to! Woohoo! 

So what was happening over here this time? There was the usual mingling around and the 2 main highlights of the night were, Graffiti Artist designing their interpretation of the "Puma Future Suede" and also a Silent DJ Battle!

If you're wondering what's a silent DJ battle, Its basically 2 DJ's spinning at the same time, where one could be heard on the speakers, while the other on the headphones. So basically you can switch to whichever music you like! Whether its Old School or Future Tunes!

Lets head to some of the pictures:

Hennessy Kyrios is the 3rd edition to Hennessy's limited edition bottles. And of course, an collector like me must have all of them. I managed to get one earlier in January at their pre sale so pretty much my collection is complete for now =D 

Hennessy Kyrios takes on a matte carbon gray mantle and an aura of understated elegance. KYRIOS, or Guardian of the Codes in Greek, signifies the key to the codes of the legendary world of Hennessy V.S.O.P:

What is going to be happening this time? There'll be an array of DJ's spinning that night, as you know Hennessy always incorporates the best music for partying with awesome Hennessy Cocktails by its side. 

Some of the highlights of the night includes:

Mr Nasty & Guru-Guru

Infamous household names of the Kuala Lumpur party scene, Mr.Nasty and GuruGuru who are otherwise known as Bass Agents need no introduction. Anchoring the hipster continent of Zouk Club KL with their monthly residency at Barsonic, Mr. Nasty & GuruGuru have well established their mark in the region with their complex and edgy lashings of electro, hard trance and hard style. 





B.A.T.E (Brain And The Eye)

made up of local duo Wai Hong and Ethan Curzon, are two fast rising nu-breeds who are set to be the next big DJ duo in the local scene. Despite being relatively new, B.A.T.E. are no strangers to Kuala Lumpur party goers. The duo is frequently spotted tearing up the decks at various nightspots around the city such as Barsonic at Zouk, Vertigo, LUST, Bakita and Bedroom, as well as events such as 2012’s second H-Artistry party at KWC.






One thing for sure, Its gonna be an awesome party that night!

Getting up close with Psy, Rita Ora, Fun and more at Future Music Festival Asia!

 photo DSC_0271_zps00691bbf.jpg

If you have read my previous post on A State Of Trance (ASOT) with Armin Van Buuren, The only thing that is happening next is Future Music Festival Asia!

Plenty of Artistes from around the world came to perform at the one time only spectacular event! and whats awesome about it? There are 4 stages of performances happening at the same time! so basically Everyone can head to the stages that they prefer!

Again, I was invited by Don Chan from Manoah Consultancy & Asahi Malaysia, being granted the full privileges that I had during ASOT the day before, which means, getting up close with the artistes, backstage passes, free flow of Asahi, VIP Cabanas & lounges and more!

As I headed over there with Joanna, We first met up with the other bloggers and also Donovan to further meet up with the Carlsberg Managing Director, Mr Soren Ravn. We managed to get some insights of whats about to happen, and of course, to party at the party of the year!

*this is going to be a long post

So since it was a festival, we headed out to see some of the acts that we wanted to see. As for me, I was roaming around with my huge chunk of DSLR just to get some pretty decent shots. The only highlights of the night for me were Psy, Rita Ora & Fun.


But as for starters, I headed over to listen to Tenzin & Timmy Trumpet, and a performance by The Temper Trap

As evening turned to night, That's when the fun started! All the amazing line up that I was looking forward to started to come up on stage, and had a performance of a lifetime!

Starting up with Rita Ora, She had an amazing performance, despite the sound systems crashing 2 times. The crowd was supportive enough as the show went on!

Sad part was, I met her up in person, but her manager didn't allow me to take a picture with her Boo Hoo Hoo =(

but well, here are some pictures of Rita Ora in performance!

*yes she's that short I had to carry her LOL*



After her performance, I headed back to the Media Tent to get some rest before Psy's and to my surprise, A girl named Estelle Kiora from Singapore came up to me and was like "Hey! You're the guy on Fire from the Cebu Juan Blogger Contest"

Honestly I was shocked that she could even recognize me, But i feel honoured getting to know another Juan Blogger contestant from Singapore now! Great to meet you Estelle!

Other than that, I even had time to braid Calista's hair as it was MESSYYYYY *yes i was the cause of that too LOL*

 photo DSC_0593_zpsfc1d1156.jpg
Check it out! Tell me which guy will actually do this LOL




After all the rest, I headed back to the Flamingo Stage to go all Gangnam style with PSY! Yes PSY was in the houusseee and the whole stage was packed with fans dancing along to the horse riding dance! 

Psy announced, that this is his last tour for Gangnam Style, until his new song is released. How awesome is that? we got to see Gangnam style for the last time!

After his performance, I joined Mr Soren Ravn, trying to catch Psy before he leaves, but sadly, he was just so fast with his whole crew, headed into the limo's, and left the stage area. Well its not like their managers will even let us take pictures with him LOL




As the intermission came along before the performance of Fun, I headed to the VIP First Class lounge with Don & Zana, to enjoy some Asahi & listen to the awesome beats the DJ was dropping in there! just imagine, a nice air conditioned place, with beers! best relaxation spot after Gangnam style!

as the festival was nearing the end, The only highlight left was Prodigy! Honestly, I haven't heard of them, because well, they're not my time kinda music.

Punk Rock, Well something I could accept as I do like Screamo & Metal kinda songs, So we had an awesome headbanging session for a good 1 1/2 hours till the end of the night!

Sad part, I couldn't get any up close shots of them, as only 6 selected media's were allowed in the pit. Strict rules this time =( But other than that, This was the first time in a long time which i could literally shake my head off!
