Bacardi recently completed 151 years. And they threw a party ( on the 23rd of December – 2013 ). And what a party! I’m still goggle-eyed. This was my second time at Kingdom Of Dreams – the first time was this and like the first time, I couldn’t stop gaping!

We hit the bar indoors – ( there were so many! ). Interesting setup had me wondering what this was for.

I didn’t have to wait too long! Smokey!

Both Akanksha & I had a couple of Warm Toddy cocktails. They were delicious! Cinnamon and apple juice and of course Bacardi Rum!

@shadeheart commented that he’s always nervous around those above. Too many games!

And below, it’s finally SHOWTIME! I was really looking forward to this because I’ve still never been to a show at Zangoora at The Kingdom of Dreams.

The show was a slightly longer recreation of Bacardi’s latest TVC, embedded below.

Some videos of the live show on my Instagram.

Exiled, outlawed, imprisoned and always free! True passion! Incredible story-telling at the event. And a brief overview of how their identity has changed over the year AND the launch of their new identity as well. It was a whole lot shorter than I had expected, which made me a very happy party-goer *wink*

Some incredible acrobatics. I was forever trying to look at it with my eyes and record it with images at the same time. Very entertaining.

And just before we head out for the after-party, more loo photos!

Above, more bars popped up but there was only one that had any Rum left – they obviously wanted crowd control! On the right is the cute @mscocoqueen with her boy. And below, the crowd lines up to try their luck at getting inside the after-party area.

Arm bands were being cut before you left the venue and the floor was strewn with them. We were out by 11pm – it was a short but very “full of passion” party. Had a blast! The experience was lovely – meeting up with friends further adds to the feeling of the holiday spirit. Warm and fuzzy. Thank you Bacardi!
