It’s been a long time coming that PJ should finally have its own glamourous party joint!
The Roof is SO SICK, i keep on thinking WHAT PARTY i wanna throw there, it’s just begging for one!
I went for the soft launch / media launch on Saturday (26th Oct) and The Roof is SO NEW, only 2 out of its 5 rooms were ready at the time. (All areas are fully operational now.)
The most awesome one for me right now its Stratosphere – Asia’s first and only luxury bar and a grassy helipad lounge with a 360° panoramic view.
As if playing (i.e. drinking, dancing, chatting) in Stratosphere isn’t enough, there are gonna be 4 other spaces under one roof (hur hur) that will make it the one and only premium integrated sky lounge in the city to house 5 distinct dining and entertainment outlets.
The Roof is created by The Group (F&B) Sdn. Bhd. – who also brought you familiar establishments like The Hill, and The Pool Adding to The Group directors’ accomplishments are Attica and Lenoir (Singapore), Attica Too (Shanghai), Pochi (USA), and a hotel/villa project in Bali.
I’m sure you recognise some of the names above, so it’ll be interesting to see how The Roof sets a new benchmark in the entertainment and F&B industry. With The Roof, The Group have exemplified immense volume of creativity and sophistication in design and decor to reinvent one’s dining and entertainment experience.
A group shot of the 5 personalities The Roof got to introduce the 5 different spaces to us, L-R:
English professional ice hockey player Carl Graham; Miss Universe Malaysia 2010 Nadine Ann Thomas; Miss Universe Malaysia 2011 Deborah Henry; model and host Cay Kuijpers; and model/actor/martial artist Peter Davis.
On the bottom row are The Group of directors themselves – Dik, Roen, Dax, and Manfred.
To get to Stratosphere, you can take one of two lifts, or the stairs.
Because PJ has few tall buildings, you feel so high up on the helipad!
Deep and i
Stratosphere is definitely The Roof’s star attraction… it is Asia’s first and only luxury open-air rooftop bar nestled on top of an infinity grassed helipad with a panoramic bird’s-eye view of the city and greater Klang Valley – a scenery which is breathtaking and spectacular.
I was snapping as many pictures as i could before the sun went down!
Love love love the colourful balls they’ve placed around… they can also be set to flicker according to the beat of the music.

Roen came around and started making us do 2-second shots from the bottle. Hi Clem. <3
OH! I ENJOYED THE FIREWORKS SO MUCH! It’s so different being up in the air AND watching fireworks burst right above you with no obstruction whatsoever! I took an Instavid of the fireworks! You can watch it *here*
I loveee how there’s so much space and grass up there! It’s not a great place to wear heels and i’m so glad i thought of wearing flats that night! Regardless, Steph and i kicked off our shoes so we could feel the grass between our toes and ran and danced like mad crazy people XD

So there you have it! The Roof takes up over 50,000 square feet of space for dining, entertainment and event space.
The five outlets under The Roof will cater to lots of different types of people and tastes, each promising to be unique and classy:

All the pix you saw of the helipad are of Stratosphere, of course.

Brimming with adrenaline, it is a place to score with pool competitions, dart tournaments and beer drinking contests are a regular feat at this outlet. A perfect retreat after work, Score offers attractive beer deals and delectable finger food for thirsty patrons.”
Dax (Director of The Group) gave us a short speech earlier in the night at Score: “We are always looking for avenues to reinvent the dining and entertainment experience for the young at heart – both for the international and local clientele. We want customers to have upscale service, excellent food and creative presentations.”

Remember that Hanger party where i wore my Cheshire cat costume to?
The vid is out!
Words below from Sueann! >
“If you were at the HANGER SS13 Sartorial Party, chances are, your antics were caught on camera by Nicholas Chin’s roaming lens. The party which saw some of the finest party animals letting loose and dancing it up to the tunes of Nick Zinner of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, King Khan and The BBQ Show, The Deer Society, Twilight Actiongirl, Bittersweet, MOIST, Couple and Xes Xes Loveseat, was immortalised in a video edited by John Hafiz. John Hafiz was also the man behind the series TeleveeJohn, which was played on party day featuring video clips that were inspirations to some of the fashion industry’s peeps.
For the full report, check out: The SS13 Sartorial Party pt. 1 and pt.2 ”
Yay i have a little talking portion in the vid! THANKS!

Hanger party was last Sunday and i wasn’t sure whether i would go or not, i figured i’d just go with the flow (my favourite kind of plan on weekends nowadays). When i reiterated my so-called ‘plan’ to SueAnn, she was all, “You better come.”
She added, “Oh i’m so surprised lots of people are coming as animals!”
Cos the dress theme = suits or animals.
I got a bit excited, “Really? That sounds cool…”
SueAnn: “Yeah, i’m going as a unicorn! I’m gonna make a horn and tail.”
Throughout the whole day she kept on talking about her unicorn costume, and even msged me on SUNDAY a few hours before the event saying how people are gonna laugh at her crossing the road in her costume. So i thought, “Set la, i’ll go in my Cheshire cat costume.”
When i got out of my car in Hotel Maya, i put on my costume and thought it was pretty handy in covering my handbag so noone can snatch it. But when i approached Zouk, i saw a sea of people wearing black and thought, “WHERE ARE ALL THE ANIMALS?!”
I felt like i got conned. Someone even asked whether i was the Hanger mascot.
In the end, i won a best-dressed prize of ic! berlin sunglasses so the costume’s ROI exceeded my expectations. People asked where i got it and i said, “Disneyland… it’s my spare costume.” They were either shaking their heads or laughing, sometimes both. I don’t see what’s so wrong about a spare costume… In fact, i think it’s a VERY smart move, cos if a party suddenly comes up, you don’t have to go hunting last minute for one, it’s already in your closet and ready to rock.
I told someone, “Since i’ve used up my spare costume, i guess i have an excuse to get another one.”
Friend: “How long ago did you buy this one?”
Me: “I don’t know… early last year?”
Friend: “So it’s like one costume a year.”
Me: “Yeah! Then in five years’ time, i’ll have five costumes then i can get a group of friends to all wear my costumes and we can go running around!”
Friend: “So that’s your 5-year plan.”
I laughed so loud when i heard that. The last time my CEO asked me what my 5-year plan was, i said i didn’t have any, i’m a go-with-the-flow kinda person. But i guess i do now!
My 5-year plan results in having a group of friends dressed in costumes… My priorities in life seem a lot clearer now.

So done is this year’s Future Music Festival Asia.
After weeks of anticipation, skirting plans around March 16th, and curbing my fever so i’d be able to go, it’s finally over.
I can’t think of another music event i can look forward to this year now..!
I didn’t go for ASOT on Friday, and decided to just go for Sat instead.
Didn’t think i’d be able to survive two days in a row.
Which is strange cos when i’m in Europe, i can do an insane four days of festival in a row.
I think it’s just the psychology that i’m away from home and should spend every single day and minute werqing it.
Anyhows. I planned to be at FMFA at 5pm so i could catch Kyoto Protocol and run to watch Arabyrd.
But… stupid Taximonger… (i’m sorry, i know you’re the official taxi but you really suck. I made 6 bookings on the app, and 1 via phone call, got a few sms and email booking confirmations, and NOT A SINGLE TAXI TURNED UP. I deleted the app already. Can’t be bothered. Just gonna stick to MyTeksi.)
So Matt and Jacie came to pick Clem and i up in their taxi, and we arrived just in time for us to catch Kyoto Protocol’s last song!
Better than nothing
Fuad, Sarch, and Shak
Sueann, Sarch, me! Hmm… everything i have on is from Topshop, except my gold shorts which are from Beautiful Disaster. My gorgeous make up that day with rainbow-coloured eyeshadow is from Shu Uemura. Lippie from Topshop.
