iD team is grateful to have such supporting clients and friends who traveled the journey with us these past 12 years. In honouring our 13th year of publication, we invited Ambassadors, hoteliers, architects, interior designers, and friends for a festive cocktail party – it was certainly a memorable night with old and new friends.
After Yance, the MC for the night welcomed our guests, iD editor-in-chief Lina Gan welcomed with a speech, officially opening the party. One of our loyal contributors Joy Karabaczek who was also the host for the night also gave welcoming remarks to respectable guests.
Duo performers Eka Bhakti played the spectacular Blüthner PH Piano while musician Yance Manusama performed as a bassist, which resulted in an intimate musical performance. The exceptional Scandinavian design with ebony keys and python leather details on the piano produced with such crystal clear sound. We were also lucky to have one of our guests, architect and jazz pianist Samuel A. Budiono to perform on the luxurious piano.
After the piano performance, guests stepped aside for an exclusive fashion show by Steven Huang and Bagteria. Steven Huang presented his collection, dominated in black and white while the models carried sophisticated Bagteria clutches.
Door prizes were given out to guests based on a lucky draw. Winners brought home Karcher vacuum cleaner, Samsung microwave, two Lux bidets and a voucher from The Hermitage Hotel. We then thanked The Grand Signature Piano, PT Sarindo Makmur Sejahtera for providing us with delicious wine, Budweiser, Karcher, and of course, The Hermitage. With exceeding support by our guests, iD continues to embrace our 13th years of publication with a thankful heart.
