Not many people know that the idea for Malaysia’s Hottest Bloggers actually hatched during one of our pool parties years ago back in 2010. Back then we were having monthly pool parties at a rooftop bar/ swimming pool in downtown Kuala Lumpur and had our lovely FHM Girl Next Door finalists as well as FHM Girlfriends/ Cilipadis with us.
So it was with some degree of nostalgia that MHB’s Andy Kho and myself together with our friends Jean and Winnie made our way over to the St. Regis Kuala Lumpur for their Crystal Summer Party on 20 May 2017. This inaugural pool party at the hotel was held at the glitzy and glamorous Crystal rooftop bar and the poolside area. The bar was inspired by the multi-facets of the precious gem it is named after, and is Kuala Lumpur’s latest playground for the city’s socialites and elite.
The hotel utilises LED media technology not only in their renowned ballroom but also adjacent to the rooftop swimming pool next to Crystal bar with a large 7m x 4m LED media wall which is extremely useful as a backdrop for events or private launches or live screenings. The indoor areas on the ground and first floor of Crystal bar are more of a classy and sophisticated lounge, while the al fresco area on the ground floor allows you to be closer to the action in the pool. The outdoor areas on the upper deck though is great for private parties and offers a panoramic views of KL city and surrounding areas.
There was a RM70.00 cover charge to enter the pool party which was inclusive of one (1) drink. On the decks providing the entertainment for the party were DJs Mr. Q, Chinois, Alex Martin, Felix T, Xami, and Dora, taking turns from 4.00pm till late night.
