The secret’s out … Bolder Carlsberg ‘Where’s The Party? 2013’ takes off

The suspense had come to an end on 11th July 2013 for one of Malaysia’s most anticipated party series, Carlsberg's 'Where's The Party 2013'. What's for sure is that, it arrived bigger and bolder than before! 

Carlsberg threw another sweetener into the epic party
This year they gave away 10 exclusive invites to the global Carlsberg Where’s the Party? that will be happening in Europe this August with none other than Axwell, formerly of Swedish House Mafia.

This year’s party was more than double the scale of last year
Clueless about the venue till they arrived, WTP 2013 took off in a cavernous hall at one of the country's largest exhibition parks, which was transformed into a ‘jet-set’ venue complete with a rare Antonov airplane forming part of the backdrop. This year’s party was more than double the scale of last year, with the biggest turnout ever of 3,000 party goers from Malaysia and Singapore, and the breadth and depth of entertainment, stage and thematic set-up second to none. Carlsberg’s iconic WTP is for the bold who step up to earn an exclusive, money-can’t-buy invitation to a party where anything could happen.

At the party zone, Carlsberg fans were in for a mega night of visual and audio extravaganza, complete with pulsating beats, sizzling acts and ice cold Carlsberg beer, all orchestrated in a uniquely Carlsberg WTP style.

To kick off the party, new Carlsberg Malaysia managing director Henrik Andersen and Carlsberg Singapore managing director John Botia made a fitting appearance at the press conference when they alighted from the Antonov, accompanied by a bevy of brand ambassadors, dressed as air stewardesses.

Andersen said, 

"Air travel is our theme this year as we're flying lucky Malaysians to Europe for our global party, we needed a massive place that would fit the plane and the huge crowd. This WTP is also about taking partygoers to new heights and it looks like we have set a new benchmark in the local party scene by creating another epic sensorial event."

"For the first time in the history of WTP, Malaysians will be treated to the global WTP experience, where 22 nations will come together. Consumers bold enough to step up to the challenge will be justly rewarded with entry to this epic European party experience.”

With Malaysia’s very own stand-up comedian Douglas Lim opening the night and Swedish Dub House duo Cazzette headlining, WTP 2013 was a heady non-stop mix of international artistes and local heroes. Celebrity hosts Joey G and Patricia K made sure partygoers did not have a dull moment.

The night flowed with performers Nine Lives, Joel Turner, 3AM in the Valley and Big Skrptz from Australia, Korean Pop sensation Sweety, DJ Inquisitive, Miss Nine who hails from Germany, DJs Clazz and Ming Ming taking their turn on stage to give the crowd an inimitable blend of edgy dance music that kept them going till the wee hours.

This year also saw the first Carlsberg party mobile site introduced, making WTP 2013 the most socially savvy party around! Party goers just couldn’t help but flock to the ‘Be Bold’ mobile site to connect and meet new people, snap photos and take part in challenges that could win them passes to the global WTP. The ‘Be Bold’ Challenges were very well-liked and hundreds of uploads were displayed at the giant screen.

Others who prefer to chill and relax were kept entertained with party games that included the Loud Ludo, Marshall Matters, No-Sight Flight, Turbalance, Safety Slides and i-Darts.

WTP 2013 is again an epic one with multi faceted sensations. Whilst partying and dancing hard, party-goers were advised to drink in moderation and get their breath alcohol content tested. Over a hundred taxis were on standby to send consumers home.

The only question remaining now is ‘Where’s the party’ in 2014, Carlsberg?

Throwback Thursday: These Adidas Shoes Are Hip Again!

Adidas decided to meet Doc Emmet Brown, borrowed his time machine, had a blast to the past, and went back to the future again – giving retro another try. The Adidas team chose 2 models from the famous ZX range – ZX 700 and ZX 750 – and gave a fresh new look to the iconic ZX models with its decidedly more modern-esque feel. Designed and sold worldwide in the mid ‘80s, the ZX range was created as the epitome of stylish sportswear that made it the must have item for any avid sneaker-head.

With innovation and research, the Adidas ZX range became 1 of the best running shoes of the ‘80s. Each model was carefully designed for comfort and practicality; their heels were designed for running impact. The ZX shoes were not only popular on the track, it also proved popular on the streets and with its combined textile and suede in the uppers, a breathable mesh lining, and cushioning in the tongue, collar and heel the ZX stayed trendy even till today.

The revamp of the ZX700 and ZX750 for SS13 features bright neons and colour blocking on its iconic silhouette – so fresh that it appeared in JUICE’s fashion shoot last issue. The ZX700 retains its original design with only a slight tweak in colourway while the ZX750’s colour is turned up a notch from its predecessor and features synthetic suede, ripstop inlays, and leather signature three-stripes. Available in purple, green, and black, these classic kicks have never looked better. 

[PICTURES] See all the ZX shoes you might love here:

To commemorate the evolution of the Originals and and its return to the fashion map, Adidas Originals collaborated with DJ-producer A-Trak and director and visual artist So-Me to create a special video campaign that celebrates originality through unique pieces found in the collection and worn by urban youths as they go about in their daily activities in the streets, partying and having a good time. 

Adidas Originals ZX700 and ZX750 SS13 is retailed at RM340 and RM370 respectively for both men and women and is available at Adidas Originals Concept stores Mid Valley, Pavilion, KLCC and Lot 10. For more info, log on to or

Christine Fan Says She Wants To Do A Full Concert At The 30-Hour Famine Camp

Mei and Melody attended the World Vision's launch of the 30-Hour Famine on 15th April and were lucky to get a one-on-one session with Christine Fan, the sweet ambassador of World Vision.

Stepping into the room, we were taken away by how tall and beautiful the 37-year-old Taiwanese singer is. She is so slim that we wonder: should she go hungry for 30 hours during the 30-Hour Famine camp? But her enthusiasm, sincerity and passion for fighting against world hunger and poverty was loud and clear- this lady is on a mission to share love with her other “fighters” at the 30-Hour Famine Camp, and she is not afraid of hunger.


It’s an amazing feeling. I went to Afghanistan in 2004 to visit the children and the people. I saw the schools, the hospitals and the villages. The schools don’t have any tables and chairs, it’s just four walls and the children sit on their knees to study. They lack basic needs, basic human rights, education, nutrients and are so exposed to natural disasters. The children suffer from hunger and so many other issues. It really makes you grateful for the assets that you never thought you had.

Do you have any tips for the campers of the 30-Hour Famine camps?

A good attitude to stay hungry is a good thing. A good attitude will help you gain energy, share love with the people around you and fight hunger together with them. Ahh, and also the weather in Malaysia is very hot and humid, so maybe bring wet tissues with you.

So it’s more of a mental fight than a physical one to endure 30 hours of hunger?

Yes! It’s really an amazing experience. The hungry feeling, it’s like a feeling of energy, you transform the hunger into energy to fight for the children. And let me tell you, to break fast the organizers will give us a bowl of porridge. And that porridge is the BEST MEAL in the world. That bowl of porridge
feels like happiness.

So you will definitely be joining the hungry campers at the 30-Hour Famine camp this year. This is not your first time?

It’s my first time in Malaysia, but I have already done it for 9 years in Taiwan. [Wang] Lee Hom was the ambassador last year and he told me that he had such a good experience that I cannot miss!

What impact can these camps bring?

The impact is not to give people food, but to help them fulfil their own system to process and produce their own food. It’s helping them help themselves by education.


Start by loving yourself and caring for the people around you. Be grateful for the things you have, be thankful and appreciate it. Then you can share love with the people around you. I think the most important and practical thing is to start small and grow big.

How do you use social media to make a social impact?

Hmm, I usually share the things and messages that I love. There’s the dark side of messages and there are also happy, bright messages. I also share bible verses but I don’t know what kind of impact I am making.

Do you remember the funniest YouTube video that you have watched?

The Harlem Shake! I don’t understand it but it’s funny. It is just a lot of people shaking themselves (she says while shaking herself and flagging her arms)! My sisters and I are planning a Harlem Shake video too, maybe we will post it one day.

Ahh, we will keep a look out for that! Which Harlem Shake Video is your favourite?

It’s the one with LeBron James from Miami Heat. The whole team is dancing and shaking. It’s very funny.


That is two days before my 2nd year wedding anniversary (on the 7th of May).

What do you feel about the responsibility of young people to vote?

Actually I don’t know much about the politics in Malaysia. But in Taiwan, people get aggressive when they are involved in politics or they become ignorant when they are not involved. I think it is important to have a big picture or understanding in world issues to participate. Voting is about making the right choice in choosing the right leader.

Do you have a message to tell to our young voters?

If you look forward to change, it means to participate and that means voting, and knowing who to vote for with a clear head.

That is a very good message. Since SAYS is Malaysia’s social news network, we would like to pick your brain on your news reading habits… Where do you get your news from, and when is your favourite time to read the news?

From CNN! Every morning I run on the treadmill in the gym and I have the TV in front of me with CNN. It helps me get a clear view. But also through the phone, the internet is so easy to get news information.


I will be performing on July 14 in Bukit Jalil, during the golden hours from 12 to 4pm where we have the final countdown. (She turns to her manager) How many songs should I sing? Hmm, actually I sound better when I am hungry so maybe I can do a whole concert!

Do you have any rituals before you go on stage for a performance?

Usually I will pray. I will pray with the whole crew and with the crowd.

Will your husband, Blackie, join you in the 30-Hour Famine camp?

Hmm, yes! Yes, he should be invited to the camp too! He should come and taste hunger because he eats too much good food. Blackie also supports the 30-Hour Famine. He is sponsoring 2 kids as well.

Long time supporter of World Vision and avid 30-Hour Famine camper Christine Fan is also sponsoring 3 children, one of which is in Malawi. Christine Fan has never met them in person, but gets Christmas cards from them every year, letting her sleep with the assurance that she is making a real difference in these children’s life.

Join the 30-Hour Famine Camp and catch Christine Fan (and maybe a full concert) during the final countdown on July 2013 in Bukit Jalil.
