WeChat Launch Party @ Neverland

I chat, you chat, we all can chat. That's WeChat!

Sorry, no, that is not its tagline but with so many interesting functions like sending a voice message, Shake and Look Around, WeChat is definitely 'the new way to connect' for everyone.

To celebrate its ever growing popularity, WeChat threw a massive party at Neverland Kuala Lumpur on 2 April 2013 which saw a huge turnout of bloggers and media members braving the rain and KL traffic to reach the club.

The fun started at the entrance where a photo backdrop was set up where you can take pictures with the adorable WeChat plushie and the WeChat girls. There was also a photobooth Puripuka-style which everyone just loved because the photo was printed out on the spot and we have an instant memory of the awesome night ahead.

The party kicked off with an energetic dance performance followed up the entrance of the night's emcee, Rudy. Mr. Poshu Yeung, Vice President of Tencent International Business took to the stage to deliver his speech before officially announcing the launch of WeChat's commercial starring WeChat's ambassadors, Lisa Surihani and Shaheizy Sam.

A series of local acts soon got the crowd hyped as the guests mingled and feasted upon the buffet line, free flow of beer and plenty of cupcakes.

Thoughout the evening, the host played several games with the unsuspecting victims sporting participants in the audience. DJ SykoGroove took over with his sick beats to which the dancers from the performance earlier freestyle-danced to.

Quiz time!

Freestyling the night away
The event wrapped with a lucky draw and one lucky soul went home with a brand new ipad. I am sure he'll download WeChat onto it as soon as possible.
