The swanky interior and luxe ambience of contemporary Malaysian restaurant Beta KL set the scene for a collaborative dinner between The Peak Malaysia and Hennessy Paradis recently. Themed ‘In Good Company’, after the French cognac distiller’s latest campaign, the event aimed to celebrate camaraderie while highlighting Malaysia’s endangered rainforests, where each bottle of Hennessy Paradis sold will see one dipterocarp tree planted by the Tropical Rainforest Conservation and Research Centre.
With an intimate guest list of 10 people that included Christopher and Daniel Lim, CEO and Deputy Chairman of Triterra, respectively; Sandy Tan, CEO of Optimax Eye Specialist, and Kenny Loh, Creative Director of Lord’s Tailor, guests were treated to a six-course meal, prepared by the restaurant’s renowned Chef Raymond Tham. Each dish was paired with one of Moët Hennessy’s Prestige Liquids, including Hennessy Paradis.
Host of the night, Yvonne Lee, kicked off the event with introducing Aiko Lee, Senior Brand Manager of Hennessy Malaysia. Giving a warm welcoming speech, she said: “In Good Company dinners are a great opportunity to combine remarkable and memorable experiences with a deeper connection to what matters.”
Throughout the night, calligraphy artist JY created an artistic masterpiece inspired by five of the most influential poets of the Tang Dynasty. Painted on a large canvas located next to the dining table, the impressive artwork symbolises the values centred around ‘In Good Company’, namely Friendship, Life and Legacy, and was later presented at the end of the night to Sandy Tan of Optimax.
