Midnight in Paris, an elegant and romantic theme for one of
the largest events organised annually by the Professional Accountancy Centre
(PAC) Club, The Annual Grand Ball 2017
(AGB 2017). The event proved to be an overwhelming success with over 150
ladies and gentlemen giving their best to dress up like a runway models during
Paris Fashion Week. This year, AGB 2017 aimed to bring you more spectacular
performances by collaborating with KDU’s
Got Talent Season 2 (KGT) for the second time and inviting well known
performers to spice up the programme flow. Have a look at our write-up on the
major moments which happened during The Annual Grand Ball 2017.
|Welcome to our Annual Grand Ball!|
The guests of AGB 2017 first
entered the glamourous venue through the main entrance which was decorated
sophisticatedly with sparkling champagne toned curtains after registering
themselves at the registration counter. Our photographers then stored the best looks
of each participant complemented with our Instagram-worthy photo booths using
polaroid photos. These masterpieces were given to the participants respectively
as door gifts. The attentive ushers then lead the participants to their
respective tables, which was chosen during registration.

After the grand entrance of our
honourable VIPs lead by the VIP ushers, Ms.
Joyce Loy and Ms. Jessica Chow, Originalution Dance Crew, a dance team
from Royal Phantom Dance Studio set
the stage on fire with their stunning opening dance.
|Constantly entertaining the guests with humour and teasing throughout the event|
Ms. Sophia Lee and Mr.
Nicholas Koon, the ultimate duo of the stage for the night then started
introducing themselves after thanking the energetic dance crews of Originalution.
The emcees then invited Mr. Chan Tze Kang, Department Head of
the Professional Accountancy Centre (PAC), Ms.
Tee Mei Fong, Programme Leader of PAC, Mr.
Daniel Lee, Advisor of PAC, Mr. Leow
Chee Kuan, Representative of Paramount Utropolis Retail Sdn. Bhd., Ms. Joyce Loy Hui Eng, Event advisor of
AGB 2017, and Mr. Tieh Jien Hern,
Event director of AGB 2017, on stage to officiate the special night. Everyone
was stunned when the unilluminated Eiffel Tower lit up the dark auditorium
after the VIPs pressed the big red button together.
The event then proceeded by the
welcoming remarks given by Mr. Chan Tze
Kang, Department Head of PAC, followed by Ms. Laura Liong Tng Yeng, President of PAC Club, and lastly Mr. Tieh Jien Hern, Event director of

As soon as the speeches were
over, the stage background was enlightened with the introduction video of the
first KGT finalist of the night, the dance group that was overloading with
confidence, Team Humble. The
down-to-earth team members started taking the audience's breath away with their
synchronised dance moves and energetic song choice. They mentioned that being
modest is a vital quality in life as we’re always meeting different individuals
in every stage of life and that was how they came up with the unique team name,
|Congratulations to all the top scorers!|
Dinner time was one of the highlights of the night as the auditorium was filled with the aroma of western cuisines when the caterers started unsealing the buffet trays. The participants were required to answer simple questions asked by the emcees before being granted the access to grab the mouth-watering barbeque chicken wings, crispy golden fish and chips, creamy carbonara spaghetti, hot tender black pepper chicken chop and petite slider burgers topped with cherry tomatoes at the buffet line.

Everyone was still showing off
their photo taking skills at the astonishing photo booths after the delicious
dinner while the emcees decided to continue with the next programme of the
night, Introduction of the Prom King and Prom Queen nominees.

The 8 glamourous and
well-suited nominees were stupefied when they found their faces appearing on
screen one by one. They were startled when they found out that they were
required to present a cat-walk on stage to attract votes from the audience.
Despite being forced on stage, they gave their all during the cat-walk as they
were told that the prizes for the winners would be fruitful.
|The harmonisation and rap was fit for the finals.|
It was a perfect ending for the
KGT finals when the last finalist, Ms.
Fiona Wong started to bring in good vibes with her own original, Perfect. The creative singer decided to
abandon her guitar and thought outside of the box by performing an Acapella
with her ‘clones’ on screen. The judges were astonished by her new idea and the
audience was so touched when she dedicated the song to her best friend, Dania
that’ve always stayed by her side since high school.
|Congratulations to the Graduates!|
The event continued with the
presence of our award emcees, announcing the Graduates of CAT and ACCA
Programme. The emcees managed to bring the graduates’ feelings to the climax
when they crafted a short and entertaining description or message for each
certificate receiver. It will be a whole new journey for every one of the
graduates once they walk out to the working world with the certificate given to
them by Mr. Chan Tze Kang,
Department Head of PAC.
|Previous Kings and Queens of PAC Club, but forever Kings and Queens in our hearts|
As an act of honour to the
sacrifices given to the club by the PAC Club’s Board of Directors 2015/2016,
Ms Tee Mei Fong, Programme Leader of
PAC, was invited on stage to present the appreciation certificates to the Board
of Directors 2015/2016. They certainly worked from fingers to bones to maintain
the club’s reputation and to conserve the welfare of PAC students.
|There we many lucky draw prizes to be won!|
|Mr Leow, a representative of Utropolis Marketplace choosing the fate of the lucky winner!|
The night reached its peak when
the emcees started mentioning about giving out free prizes, The Lucky Draw

sponsored by the generous sponsors as their ticket numbers were being picked
randomly from the crystal bowl on stage. The attractive prizes included branded
shoe bags, RM 20 Starbucks Cards, RM 50 H&M Cards and the grand prize, a Buffet
Dinner Voucher for 2 worth RM 250. Ms.
Laura Liong Tng Yeng, President of PAC Club and Mr. Leow Chee Kuan, Representative of Paramount Utropolis Retail
Sdn. Bhd. were invited on stage to pick the numbers from the crystal bowl and
they certainly enjoyed it by looking at the smile on their faces when they were
presenting the prizes.
|The King and Queen of the night|
The next prize giving session
was to the Prom King and Queen by Mr.
Tieh Jien Hern, Event director of AGB 2017. The elegant looking Prom Queen,
Ms. Celin and charming Prom King, Mr. Lim Shaun Ming received a pair of
movie tickets each as a reward for dressing best according to the theme,
Midnight in Paris. The roaring of the 3 finalists’ names from the audiences
could be heard as soon as the emcees invited the judges for KGT on stage to
present the final award of the night.

The night ended with the
closing performance featured by Red Buck
Noise, an electrifying band sponsored by The Academy Music Centre, with a pianist who knows how to sing
romantic songs like Perfect by Ed
Sheeran. Furthermore, Ms. Fiona Wong
joined the band and performed Red by
Taylor Swift, followed by the amazing judge for KGT, Ms. Elaine Lee who sang like an angel from heaven. Next up, lets look at some awesome dance floor photos!
The night finally came to an

socialised while dancing together.

Lastly, we would like to thank
all the amazing performers who gave their all during the night to entertain the
audience. Not forgetting the generous sponsors and staffs from both PAC and Student & Alumni Centre, be it financially or in-kind, without
all the support from them, this event wouldn’t be as successful.
|Thank you to all committees who worked hard for this night.|
