Malaysia’s Hottest Bloggers 2nd Anniversary Party: Part 2 [ADV]

Several weeks ago, the Malaysian Hottest Bloggers celebrated the second part of the 2nd Anniversary Party at Vertigo Club KL. The celebration also coincided with Tim Chew’s (Founder of MHB) birthday, so it was an extra special party.

You might be wondering what MHB is all about? Well, it’s an exclusive community of Malaysian female bloggers formed in August 2010 and today is an established digital media platform that has worked with many lifestyle brands in Malaysia. I joined MHB only a few months ago and it sure has been an rewarding experience since.

My date for the night was of course Frank. Who stole Tim's Johnnie Walker Gold ‘Striding Man’ for a picture opportunity.

Speaking of which, the iconic Johnnie Walker Striding Man was created in 1908 by renowned English cartoonist Tom Browne who modeled the appearance after the brand’s founder, grocer John Walker. The Striding Man was drawn moving forward to symbolize Walker’s innovative thinking and never-ending pursuit of greatness.

This year has been a particularly challenging year for me. Freelancing isn’t an easy feat. And from time to time I do miss the previous luxury I had while working a high paying job. Musicians don’t get paid very much locally (or anywhere really, until you make it really big), so I have to do quite a lot of gigs regularly just to pay the bills. Fortunately, the exposure I’ve been getting has helped attracting more jobs and looking back now, I felt that all my efforts have been worth my while.

Just last week I just played one of my biggest gigs with another well-known band in KL named Mad Sally. Seeing fellow musicians putting the extra miles into their work is just so inspiring. 2 more big gigs to go before 2012 finishes!

Anyway, back to the party at Vertigo. The fine whiskey chosen for the night was the Johnnie Walker® Gold Label Reserve.

It’s best enjoyed with ice (and a little bit of water) to fully appreciate the taste. Starting off with an intense sweetness, followed by the rich and fresh fruitiness, then mellowing out with a lingering softness. Gold Label is definitely suitable for any kind of occasions and celebrations.

While mingling around and sipping our liquid gold, there was suddenly a loud cheer coming from the side as Jane walked in with a massive surprise cake adorned with sparkles.

Look at Tim's big grim seeing the surprise cake!
