I had the honour and the opportunity to attend a press conference organised by the World Bachata Festival last week. Yes, this blogpost is a little late, I know. I had been completely tied up the rest of last week, and then I had the misfortune to fall sick the whole of this week.
However, this blog post is not too late, I hope! The World Bachata Festival is right around the corner – this weekend, in fact!
PRESS CONFERENCE AT QLIQ DAMANSARA
The press conference was held at Qliq Damansara on Tuesday, 1st November 2016. To be honest, I hadn’t heard of Qliq Damansara before this, much less know where it is.
Qliq Damansara is a nice, chic hotel nestled within Empire Damansara, which isn’t too far from the commercial hub of IPC/Curve/Tesco Mutiara Damansara. It’s not one of those big setups like a 5 or 6-star hotel, but because it’s relatively new, it’s clean and efficient, and their service staff are attentive and outstanding. Their function rooms were functional, with the necessary set up that was needed for a press conference such as this.
Qliq also prepared a delicious spread of refreshments for the press conference. I must admit that I couldn’t stop eating because everything tasted so good.
Also… the next thing I’m going to share might make me look ulu-fied (“backwards / behind civilization”), but I got pretty excited when I saw this in the common area between the function rooms.
These are lockable units equipped with a wall charger each! They are so relevant in today’s time, where everyone’s smart phone is an appendage (including me!!!!)! And we all know how quickly a smart phone’s battery drains, even if you’re not playing Pokemon Go (which I don’t, by the way). You can safely leave your phone with your charger in one of these units to charge while you’re attending the conference or seminar; and come back to retrieve them later.
If you’d like to pay Qliq a visit, check out Qliq Damansara’s website here, or you can just pop in to their hotel – look up their location below.
A LITTLE BIT OF FUN
With some time to spare during the press conference, the organisers decided to show us a little preview of what to expect at the festival! Okay, that’s not really true. They were just having fun, the way dancers always do – break out into dance!
And of course, a blogpost is never complete without selfies and we-fies.
Thank you to World Bachata Festival 2016 for inviting me to join this cozy press conference! I’m looking forward to the festival this Friday!!!
