Red Hot Party: AirAsia’s Exclusive Taylor Swift Aircraft Livery Launch in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

June 1, 2014

It was not a simple event invitation. A Red Hot Party in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I didn’t have to think twice. AirAsia flew select bloggers from Indonesia, Singapore and Philippines to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to witness the unveiling of the exclusive Taylor Swift Aircraft Livery for her Red Hot Concert in Asia Pacific.

Find the #TeamPhilippines 🙂 You cannot miss me!

In the Sultan Lounge in Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, we found ourselves partying with the bloggers and media friends from Asia Pacific. I came without much expectations, my friends and IG followers were asking if I would meet Taylor Swift, I didn’t know much about the details of the event. I was just ready for the surprises that were waiting for us. Going to the venue was already an adventure (will do separate blog for that!). When we got to the underground bar, I saw red and fun party people!

Blazing yellow lights and all red that night!
Awesome dance performance!

Fun at the Photo Booth with Ferds and Earth 🙂
I love the FotoboxMalaysia Photobooth service! They set up a real booth, so you can go wacky and crazy inside. You can choose different layouts for your printed picture, plus, you can even send a copy of the pic to your email addy 🙂

The much-awaited event that night. The unveiling of the exclusive Taylor Swift Aircraft Livery!

Aireen Omar, Chief Executive Officer of AirAsia Berhad unveiled the latest aircraft livery to be added to AirAsia‟s extensive list of unique aircraft liveries, and fans of Taylor Swift around the region will be able to see this special aircraft livery for the next one year, as this aircraft will also be servicing AirAsia routes throughout our network which spans 88 destinations across 22 countries. How awesome is that?! 🙂 
“Taylor Swift’s tour will be kicking off in South East Asia soon, and we are looking forward to welcome Taylor Swift and her crew on board our special aircraft. At AirAsia, we‟ve always taken branding to a different level and this opportunity to work with Taylor and her team marks yet another milestone for us as we continue to build the brand globally,” said Aireen Omar.

We were waiting and expecting Taylor to arrive and join us; however, she was tied with another commitment and couldn’t make it to the party. She, however sent a video message saying she is excited to see us all on her concert (blurry picture.. I had too many glasses of mocktails ;))

Are we disappointed? Not at all! We sure had a lot of fun! Flying to another country to party with people from Asia Pacific, and witness yet another historical milestone for AirAsia is something to be happy about! This kind of invitation doesn’t come to anyone, any day. Besides, we still got a chance to see Taylor on her concert (keep on reading!).

Concert tickets, trips and Taylor Swift memorabilia were raffled off during the event. We were happy to witness how excited most of the guests were when the host raffled off a trip to Kalibo. 🙂 Thank you for wanting to visit our country! We were equally excited to be in Malaysia. Such a beautiful country! 🙂

I might have missed Taylor Swift that night, but meeting and traveling with these awesome media practitioners made the trip more awesome! 

On our flight back to Manila, we saw the other awesome aircrafts from the AirAsia. Too cool and colorful! It didn’t occur to me that airplanes could be this fashionable!

Have I mentioned that the KL1A2 airport is so huge and equipped with nice facilities? It is a new budget airport in Kuala Lumpur and just a few cartwheels from the arrival gate, you can see the new Tune Hotel (where our other blogger friends were staying for a pajama party – we wished to meet up but there wasn’t much time for us).  Anyway, more stories and pictures on my next blog post 🙂

If you guys want to see and travel with Taylor Swift, 

Thank you AirAsia for taking me once again to Malaysia! Special thanks to Ms Jen, Mitch and Mark for taking care of us during the trip! 

The Taylor Swift RED ASEAN TOUR Presented by Cornetto will be at Jakarta on 4 June, Manila on 6 June, Kuala Lumpur on 11 June and in Singapore on 9 and 12 June.

Here are the bloggers, celebrities and media friends from Asia Pacific 
sending you all love and good luck!
