Last Saturday, Empirica Club at SCBD was turned into a hall of impeccably dressed ladies and gentlemen of the 20s. Lions Club Jakarta Selatan was throwing a Great Gatsby Themed Charter Night which include buffet dinner, auction and special fashion show presentation by Alleira Batik and Yogie Pratama.
Putri Indonesia 2013 Whulandari Herman was also present as a special guest. She showed up walking tall, proud and stunning with her glittery crown. All eyes were on her glowing sun-kissed skin, while she was gracefully modelling the finale dress for both talented designers. Her smile was just beautiful.
The auctioned goods were inclusive of diamond jewelries, a dress donated by Amanda Putri Rahardjo from Alleira and other precious collection. There was a also a grand prize lucky dip for the invited guests. Too bad i was never lucky for this kind of thing. However it was such a nice surprise to have won the Best Dressed Female for the night. Two males and females each were hand picked from the crowd, then chosen based on the audience vote/cheer. Ha! we all had a good laugh. IDR500k worth of SPA voucher was definitely not bad at all. Thank you Five Senses Spa and Lions Club! My body needs some generous treatment.
I am not fond of Empirica's interior that night which I think was too bright. It felt too 'revealing' and lacking of ambience since all the four high walls were on brilliant white. On the bright side (pun intended), it did provide good lighting for picture-taking. Once it hit 10 o'clock, all the lights got dimmer and lounge music started playing in the background. That when all the colourful laser light lit up the night.
Empirica is definitely a new kid in the block in the clubbing scene. The rectangle hall interior feels too empty for me and the parking was a mess, especially when it rains. The road within lot8 is full of holes and gravels so ladies watch out for your heels when you decide to walk to your car. However they do play great music till dawn. When you got good fist-pumping companies, it all don't matter anyway..
Good night! xx
