Many of us may not know that Singapore hosts many gala balls throughout the year, and of course not to mention the prestigious Monaco Ball which happened yesterday. The Prince Albert II Foundation Charity Gala is held biannually and is hosted by Marina Bay Sands for the past few editions. Of course, leading the delegation is Prince Albert II the reigning head of state of Monaco.
Special thanks to Laurence, the main coordinator for the gala, for inviting me for this extremely grand event, and of course my boss Benoit for trusting me to represent you! Not forgetting Josephine for agreeing to go for this event and had to put in a lot of effort to look as glam as possible!
The Prince Albert II Foundation of Monaco is a charitable organisation with its key focus in protecting the environment, tackling issues of climate change, water and biodiversity. The key areas in focus include the polar zones, the Mediterranean and the poverty areas in the world.
The proceeds from the charity auction, kindly sponsored by famous international brands and artists, will go into research and project executions. So while the ball is exceptionally grand and posh, what’s important to note is that everything is for a good cause.
I have to say that the highlight of the evening will definitely be to have had the chance to speak to his excellency, Prince Albert II, himself, as well us our foreign affairs minister Dr. Vivian Balakrishnan! Star struck much!
Be it the rose petal theme, exquisite fashions, or using technological tools for the ballroom decor, the Monaco Ball in Singapore has to be the coolest experience for a first-timer like myself. I could definitely get used to this lifestyle!
