So it came to past, Hennesy's 2nd Artistry party of this year, a trilogy, the first in KL. I was at the first one back a couple of months ago in Penang, and there I was again at Kenanga Wholesale City to experience the sights and sounds of the latest Hennessy Artistry party to hit town and my, it was good.

Do check out my pre-writeup of this event (H-Artistry KL 2012 Coming Up!) to see the list of artistes performing. We had Angger Dimas, BATE, Nasty & Guruguru and the highlight of the night Eva Simons rocking the stage.
|Some Hennessy for you sir?|
As always, I was there pretty early this year, arriving before the doors were opened to public. Thanks to the organizers I was given a photography pass hence the opportunity to walk straight up to the stage for better photo opportunities. It was a night of free flow Hennessy, one which everyone present that night appreciated.

The venue itself was huge, which managed to cope with the neverending crowd that came in droves. Who doesn't want a night of booming music, and free flow Hennessy right? I was pretty glad to see the usual bloggers partying out that night, along with new friends. The experience was surreal, lights flashing, music booming, friends shouting on top of their voices.
|I even got to meet up with some of the Penang bloggers who came down to party (L-R: Myself, Henry Tan and friend, Nicole and Joey)|
As the night progressed on, we started to see more bodies moving along to the music, and more faces getting flushed from the alcohol. Hennessy Artistry has always been a great night to catch good music from the artistes and DJs. As for me, I was actually excited and stayed until the end to catch the famous Dutch Eva Simons to listen to her belt our her songs.

It wasn't until past midnight that Eva Simons came out to perform. Immediately dropping my glass of Hennessy, I rushed down to the front of the stage to witness her performance which was really energetic to say the least. Moving, singing, shaking from one end of the stage to the other, the crowd lapped it all up with lots of dancing. Check out some of the photos I managed to capture of her last night.

So it was a good night for me, as I witness my friends dancing along to the music. I tried dancing to, which wasn't my forte actuaclly, and it came out looking like I'm just shaking from side to side. One thing I liked though, even though there were so many people that night, safety and security at Hennessy Artistry was of utmost importance, and no untoward incident happened.

Of course, being bloggers, there was a never ending need to snap lots of photographs, and that was what I did. With my trusty Canon S90 digital camera, every opportunity I had, I snapped some photos. The lighting conditions were rather dark though, but I still managed to get by. Catch some of the photos I took of us that night.

Overall, a good night out. I will always fancy going for Hennessy Artistry parties for the experience, and they never fail to disappoint. This time was also my first time I actually stayed until the end of a party. What I saw was different from my past experience when I left earlier.
|Free flow of Hennessy the whole night through|
The amount of flustered face people, yours truly included, were everywhere. Of course, we practiced safe drinking, where we actually chilled at a nearby food court first to regain our alertness before going back. Here's looking forward to more happening events in the future!
