So I had yet another eventful Saturday afternoon, this time I was to spend my day over at Palace of The Golden Horses for a tea party organized by them to celebrate their 5000+ likes on their Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/PalaceOfTheGoldenHorses). Now that's a significant milestone for any Facebook page, hence the festivities and fun for all!

Afternoon Tea Party by Palace of The Golden Horses
Date: 7 July 2012
Time 1pm - 5pm
Venue: Grand Salon, Palace of the Golden Horses
|My rather cute invitation card|
Reaching the venue just in time for registration, I was really glad to catch up with all the new and familiar faces. We had bloggers, facebookers, families, childrens, and lots of colourful cheerful people this afternoon. Food of course was my priority, which thankfully the hotel provided without any reservations.
The venue itself was rather nicely done, with a huge horse centrepiece, balloons everywhere, and a tea party environment. Of course, colourful settings means more photos must be taken, which was exactly what I did. Check them out below.

There was a short photography session where we all get to play with those party props, which were colourful and cheery things. Check out my photo above, and tell me if it isn't cheery enough? It wasn't long before tea was served, together with loads of finger food. Now when you have a few, they're called finger food, but when it comes in truckloads, we were filled to the brim!

A tea party wouldn't be complete without all the happy chattering with friends. We did have lucky draws, best dressed contest, and fun filled activities for the children as well. Oh, not forgetting a really tiring "Amazing Race" around the vicinity of Palace of The Golden Horses.

Now Palace of The Golden Horses had this really beautiful lake just beside our tea party venue. Little did I know then when I took the photography below that 20 minutes later, I would be running around the area like a mad man trying to solve the Amazing Race questions.

It did not take us long before we formed our groups, and went ahead with teams of 5 each for the team race. The reason I joined? I wanted to get a chance to win the iPod shuffle or free room stays. Unfortunately at the end of the day, getting 3rd placing did not win me those prizes. I did go home with some dining vouchers though. Check out some of the photos we managed to capture during the race.

Overall it was a really good afternoon out, one which I have to thank Palace of The Golden Horses for organizing, and not forgetting the really cool and sporting bloggers and friends who huffed and puffed their way throughout the activities. Personally, I really liked this event, as it brought out really good vibes. Good enough that I am happily blogging this out immediately after the event.
Congratulations again to Palace of The Golden Horses for gaining 5000+ Facebook fans, and may the number increase exponentially !
