It’s Somertime, Anytime with Somersby!

Somersby Malaysia held their campaign launch preview party at Glasshouse at Seputeh end of last month and I was lucky to be invited to party along!

I took the train from Ipoh in the morning at 9 am and reached KL Sentral at about 11.40 am. Shortly later, my friend came to pick me up. Spent a couple of hours at her house before we made a move to my first event. After that, we went straight to Glasshouse @ Seputeh.

Somersby is the bestselling cider in Malaysia according to National Key Retailers’ Scanned Data (Jan ’15- Aug ’16). It is a refreshing alcoholic drink made from real fruit juices and natural fruit flavoring. It is sweet and refreshing with no beer after-taste. Somersby Cider contains no artificial sweeteners, flavors, or colorings.

Oh yeah, a week before the event, they mailed the invitation and to my surprise, a gift.

A MINIATURE KOMBI VAN!

Oh, my gosh, how cute is the miniature kombi van?? It is the cutest gift I’ve ever received. I love it so much.

The road to Glasshouse @ Seputeh wasn’t bad but just slightly confusing and narrow. There was no parking space but there was a free jockey service to park the car for the guests.

The traffic jam wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be, considering it was peak hours.

We arrived at about 6.30 PM.

This handsome guy and this hot lady will greet you at the door.

I love the concept of a glasshouse with plants and trees indoor. Guests were busy mingling around and taking pictures. While waiting for more guests to arrive, we were served with some finger food and of course, freeflow of Somersby cider all night long.

Then the emcee Calista Leah gave us the welcome note.

There were a few insta-worthy settings to take pictures at. Like these beds.

Or this seesaw. There’s also a garden swing to take selfies or wefies.

Live performance to entertain the guests before the event starts.

Free flow of the refreshing Somersby Cider. Three different flavors were available on that day – Apple, Blackberry, and Sparkling Rose.

The delicious snacks. The lamb meatball was really good! And the mushroom bruschetta. So damn good!

I wish I had more but I was too full.

One of the cool things available at the party – UV body marbling art with neon and ultraviolet paint. You create a design on the water, kind of like a latte art, then you dip your arm in. Your arm will glow in the dark!

Look at my cool, glowing arm!

If you’re interested in seeing how the process is done, I have included a short clip in the Youtube video at the end of this post.

Waiting for the Kombi vans!

The management team of Carlsberg Malaysia made a special appearance and served guests their favorite Somersby beverages in The Somertime VW Kombi van bars.

Serving the guests with Somersby Cider.

The Volkswagen Kombi van has an open hatch roof and fold-out countertop, doubling up as Somersby bars.

If I’m not mistaken, the buffet-style food was from Morganfield’s. I was too full to eat the spaghetti even though it looked so damn good and I wanted to eat some so badly.

I just had the veggies, some chicken fingers, and some chips.

The chips were so good, though.

Dance performance.

While the guests were enjoying their food, Phoon Chi Ho, the stand-up comedian entertained us with his jokes. He’s hilarious. I put a snippet of his performance in the video below if you’d like to watch it. You could also watch it on Youtube.

You could mix and match your favorite Somersby Apple, Blackberry & Sparkling Rose variants. Not only that, buy-1-free-1 vouchers for one 330ml bottle of any Somersby cider variants will be given out through the month of April at respective Somertime, Anytime roving locations.
