Getting ready for the Scarlet Event was almost like getting ready for the big day… except that it wasn’t my big day. I probably lost count of the number of times that Sabrina told me to "wear nice nice". Fearing that she will never invite me to any other event because my dressing might disgrace her, I set forth on a mission with fashion connoisseur Plaktoz. Short of the dress which was stupidly purchase by yours truly ON THE EVE OF THE GREAT ROBINSON SALE, everything else was consulted with The Fashion Connoisseur (TFC).

Probably more on the process later… but the cost of the dress – S$139, the cost of the blink blink – S$(hidden), the cost of the footwear – S$36.90, the cost of the handbag – S$(hidden), the cost of renting a car – S$55, the cost of parking – S$10, the cost of petrol – S$20… the pleasure of being invited to the Scarlet Event – S$ Priceless. For everything else, there’s Mastercard, =P

Looking for the place at the Singapore Flyer was quite easy. The outside was floored with red carpet and I guess I was so early that there was more than enough time for me to pose with the models, smile in front of the video camera and tease a little as I walked in. It really felt like a red carpet moment no less than those that you watch at the Grammy’s.

Inside was dark and secretive and people were scarce (because I was too early). Food and drinks were aplenty though, but I didn’t want to look like a glutton, so I went easy on the food and drinks (Rule #1).

Finger food was the call of the day – which is really good if you just want to pop one into your mouth. The desserts were simply fantastic. However, rule #1 prevented me from eating more than 3 mouthful worth of food – and even those had to be skimmed off DK‘s plate.

At the stage, a huge screen was playing the trailers of Scarlet – the TV series. Today, they were going to unveil what Scarlet is all about πŸ˜‰ Feeling so excited about it already!

In the background, we were entertained by the band and a singer. It’s a pity that I didn’t get the name of the band or the singer. I thought they were quite wonderful! =)

And here’s the who’s who at the event – although more pictures are available at… erm… you know? At the other blog. =)

Soon after, the unveiling of Scarlet began. The event was hosted by a beautiful lady who started yet another formal series of Scarlet trailers – where the catch line is to put her in every household. I mean… who can you put a lady in every household ?!?!

Then the secret was unveiled…

Scarlet is a series of television by LG Electronics – which is one of the popular brands in Singapore. If you would like to know more about the TV series, you’d be pleased to know that you can find more information from here.

And while we were partying away the night, the crew were busy printing out nice laminated photo cards for all the guests! Wow! That’s really nice of them! I wonder who was the one behind all these planning. It’s really a job well done!

Lastly, before I began my second part of the LG Scarlet event, I would like to thank Sabrina for inviting me, the organizer Gavin Foo for hosting us, and LG Scarlet for an event well ran. Do check out Part 2 soon! =)
