AD Time 25th Anniversary Gala Dinner

a.d. Time has reached 25th years in business and i was lucky to be apart of their extravagant gala dinner; together with their valued partners and clients, held at Shangri-La Hotel, Kuala Lumpur on the 13th of March 2015.

Just a brief introduction on a.d. Time, the journey started since 1989, where Mr YY Kwan, the founder and Managing Direct, and partners decided to build ad time in realising their passion and love towards the artistry of timepieces. Since then, they successfully formed valuable lifetime partnerships and relations with various licensing partners, distributors and retailers. Among a.d. times licensing partners are Alain Delon, Bonia and Braun Buffel who have believed in them in being one of the renowned timepieces distributor in Malaysia and slowly growing to world class brands which includes Escada, Versus by Versace, Puma Time, and many more!

Through their brand slogan, a lifetime partnership, they have intended to reinforce our brand promise of lifelong support, understanding and trust.

The Walkway Decorations for the 25th Anniversary Gala Dinner
When i arrived with the butterfly team, we were to register at the registration counter and we received a corsages which was super adorable! At the event, everyone was dressing up, where the ladies were all glamorous and the men were in their James Bond attire looking incredibility at their best. Everyone was very happy at the event where people were networking with people who were in the same industry. Before entering the hall, we had a photo shoot session which we will then receive a photo to bring back home as memories.

We waited around an hour before we could enter the dining hall which was jaw dropping with flowers and crystals as their deco. There were around over 700 attendees at the event, to give you a picture of how big the event was. And it was really glamorous i must say, with people from various countries coming all the way just to attend the event.

 I really loved the table deco but the whole hall was pretty much really dimmed. But i assume that they wanted the night to be very romantic to celebrate the night. A speech was given by the CEO to show his appreciation of support by the distributors, partners and loyal clients for this amazing achievement. And also stating that without the team, a.d. time would have not gone this far. Followed by entertainment of dancers to start the night!

The food was served one by one at a time by personal waiters for each table which felt very exclusive. Starting with appetisers then ending the night with desserts, please refer to the photo of the menu above to find out what we had for dinner.

And of course, whats a party without champagne? Also the CEO of a.d. time, YY Kwan celebrated the evening with a series of appreciation awards given to the company's lifelong partners including Bonia, Alain Delon and Malaysia Tatler. The gala dinner ended after some lucky draws, where prizes totalling up to Rm150,000 were given away to guests to end the night. Talking about celebration, i would like to personally congratulate a.d. time for their achievement. I can see why they have gotten this far with the amazing support of the team that a.d. time has.

Lastly, i would also like to thank a.d. time for this lovely watch which is worth almost MYR2,000 for attending the event. I can't thank you enough as its the perfect time for a new watch since i had been hunting for a watch. But looks like a.d. time is on my side or wrist. hehe. To end my blogpost, do check out this video which was played during the event which i find was very touching to see how much they have grown.
