[Event] #beyuniquerepresent vol. 1 2015 Hot Chocolate Festival Instameet

I had a pleasure hosting the first ever Instameet at Chocolate Arts, celebrating 2015 Hot Chocolate Festival. It all started when I met up with Sherry for the first time at Koko Monk. Unlike me, she is not a coffee drinker, but a hot chocolate lover. When Koko Monk's owner started talking about upcoming Hot Chocolate Festival to Sherry and me, I saw nothing but a golden opportunity to host an exclusive event. I wanted it to step it up and top it up a notch, so I started conceptualizing and then contacted several venues. Gladly, one of my favourite chocolate places, Greg of Chocolate Arts was up for hosting a private event with me.

I also partnered up with a few local artisans such as Woodlot Candles, Harlow Skin Co., and Pacific Design Lab for a little giveaway, plus, I got DJ Chelsea to play some cool tunes and Cyrus to photograph the event. The day I announced my invite on Instagram, the guest list became filled up instantaneously. I was supposed to have max. 15 people but couldn't say no to some of those people who have been wonderful supporters in my life. So, ALL of those people who RSVPed ended up showing up despite the rain which I am forever thankful for. It indeed was a fun event drinking 3 samplers of uniquely created hot chocolates as chatting with my guests. I would like to thank everyone who made it last night. This is only the vol. 1, so anyone who didn't make it, please email beyunique@gmail.com to sign up on my invite list. I look forward to hosting another event in near future.
