So you’ve heard about #NuffnangLovin’!
We had our very first Nuffnang Lovin’ at Aloft KL Sentral’s W xyz Bar on 25th April 2014. Refer to our previous post here to find out more about Aloft KL Sentral. :)
Keep reading to find out what went on that evening.
Let’s get started with some pictures of the place and participants!
Meet Denise and Eric, our ushers of the day, at the registration table.
Upon registration, our Nuffnangers also had a chance to take pictures at the photo wall before entering W xyz Bar! Oh! Remember to have a look at our Nuffnang Lovin’ photo album on our Facebook page. Spot and tag yourselves! :)
Right at W xyz Bar, it was The Light Fantastic welcoming and greeting us with a beautiful performance. From the short Q&A session by our Emcee of the night, Adrian, and we were told that it was actually their last performance. BUT, they’ll be back to perform again from 28th May onwards.
While waiting for the event to start, Kendrick and Christy had a friendly pool match. Guess who won the match! :P
Shortly after, we started the night by having our Nuffies do a short introduction about themselves.
To get everyone warmed up for the night, we played the Nuffnang version of speed dating. Here’s the deal, those in the outer circle, were required to keep moving in an anti-clockwise direction (right). At each stop, they would have to introduce themselves and interact with whoever was in front of them for 5 seconds.
After that ice-breaking session, it’s dinner time! Our dinner was served canapé style; the best way to have dinner while socialising with others without focusing too much on either one.
Then, we were given an introductory and welcome speech by the GM of Aloft Hotels, Mr Paolo.
Aloft KL Sentral got Paperplane Pursuit to perform for us too! Their performance was so lively and catchy and they definitely got everyone’s attention!
Paperplane Pursuit, a band of 5 led by John O, the energetic lead singer, is a pop band based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. First gained recognition in 2010, and they are getting more popular than ever! :D Go and check them out on their Paperplane Pursuit YouTube channel.
We were also given a tour around Aloft to be “introduced” to their re:mix lounge, re:fuel, in touch, Aloha Desk, and of course, XBOX Kinect. :P
UP UP UP WE GOOO!
But first, #letustakeaselfie. That’s what they always say, if you can’t beat them, join them!
Next stop ─ Aloft’s MAI Bar, at the roof top! It is an elongated and spacious bar, aesthetically defined by Tiki culture decorations. We became even more amazed when we saw its swimming pool and open space area for its guests to chill and socialise at the outside. At the end of the open space area, there’s a perfect spot for a bird’s-eye view of Kuala Lumpur city.
We then decided to spend some time at MAI bar since there was so much to see.
As usual, group photos are a must for us! Since the view and the lighting were a perfect match, we decided to get it done there. :)
Then, we had a Nuffies Sharing Session conducted by Janice, our Nuffnang Community Executive, Adrian, our Nuffnang Talent Executive, and Michelle, our Assistant Country Manager, back at W xyz Bar to share tips, information, and more about blogging.
Coming up… Time for more fun of course!
Nuffnangers were divided into 3 groups and each was led by a Nuffie.
Every group was given an envelope which contained a list of items that they were required to get. And the team that finishes that task first would be the ONLY team going back with prizes.
Drum roll please!
3rd place, the slowest yet steadiest! Goes to… Team 1!
And the faces of the runner up; Team 2!
And… Finally, the 1st place, the ONLY team that goes back with prizes in their hands!
We ended our evening with another group photo at W xyz Bar. :)
Here’s a last group shot of our Nuffies we took too! :)
From left to right: Adrian, Vanessa, Denise, Michelle, Xing Yi, Janice, Sam, and Eric.
We spotted this picture on Kendy’s blog earlier! During Nuffnang Lovin’, he was telling us about his idea of having something drawn and… here it is! Guess who is who! :D
