A MAGNUM VIP welcome at Avalon

The folks at MAGNUM really knows how to indulge their guests. To celebrate MAGNUM’s 25th anniversary, MAGNUM held a lavish party on Friday at Avalon, Marina Bay Sands.

I attended the party with my wife, Rachel. Walking into the party itself makes us feel like VIPs:

When I received the invitation kit, it was equally thrilling too:

A series of announcements were made that night, including the return of the MAGNUM Singapore Pleasure store at Custom House Terrace. Guests were treated to a night of chocolate decadence, fashion highlights and other programs.

Largest Chocolate Fountain in Singapore Renowned for using quality chocolate in each MAGNUM, the chocolate-themed party used over 260kg of MAGNUM chocolate, and broke the record for Singapore’s largest chocolate fountain (accredited by the Singapore Book of Records). Standing at more than 1m tall, over 100kg of chocolate flowed through the fountain to provide guests with the decadent experience of creating their own MAGNUM ice cream. Uncoated vanilla MAGNUMs were dipped into the chocolate fountain and decorated with the guests’ choice of favourite toppings. After the event, the MAGNUM chocolate fountain is now on public display at Customs House Terrace.

“Decadence Cracked was inspired by the rich crackling chocolate crust of MAGNUM and how it resembled the first light of day illuminating the city,” said Lim. Wong’s creations were also designed to portray “MAGNUM’s style of elegance and simplicity, playing up the classic brown, white and gold notes”. Models mingled with guests throughout the night to show off selected pieces, which are now on display at the MAGNUM Singapore Pleasure Store.
