Thank you Otto Marine for choosing me to be you very first professional DnD emcee for your special night.
Otto Marine has a staff of about 200 people, however some of their audience and the big boss Datuk Seri Yaw and his family flew in from Malaysia. Many others had to come in from their shipyard in Batam just for this auspicious D&D event, so we wanted to make sure it was a great night for them.
WELCOMING THE YEAR OF THE HORSE
Otto Marine have hosted events before, but they were just friendly get-togethers with a bit of karaoke singing. So I felt really honoured to be chosen, along with my team to be their first professional DnD emcee.
As it was an event celebrating the Chinese New Year, as the D&D emcee, I recommended the ‘God of Fortune’ make an appearance for the pre-event cocktails, and he was kind enough to oblige.
A VERY KIND & GIVING COMPANY
Otto Marine Limited are a very giving company and when I was going through the final D&D emcee briefing with the committee, the Chairlady of the committee arrived and started passing out Ang Pow packets. I, as the DnD emcee, together with my two lovely dancers and my VJ/DJ were lucky enough to be on the receiving end of the Ang Pows.
What really surprized me though, was that Otto Marine had also prepared Ang Pows for all the hotel staff who were waiting on them for the night. As a D&D emcee, I do receive Ang Pows, but I rarely see them given to all the people who made the night special for them, so from this alone, you can already see how considerate & kind this company is.
A COLOURFUL YU SHENG
A special Moses award was given on the night to Otto Marine Limited for their wonderful contribution & efforts. Then it was time to raise the night into full swing with the tossing of the auspicious Yu Sheng (and they really tossed it well). Huat Ah!
Well, the night was filled with merriment and fun for all ages, as there were children from about 11 years old up to retirees present.
LET THE D&D GAMES BEGIN
As a D&D emcee, it’s really wonderful when so many people want to come up to play in the games & you have to send them back down to their seats because there’s not enough space for everyone. But I did try to give as many of the audience as possible a chance to come up and play if they really really wanted to.
We were the only performers for the night, and this suits me just fine as the DnD emcee. Otto Marine gave me full reign to do as I liked, so, I planned a packed program, but I also had leeway to chop and change as I felt the requirements and the energy of the audience.
One of the highlights for the night was the Best Dressed competition. Being their D n D emcee, I feel the audience look forward to the Best Dressed competition, but I will say that Otto Marine Limited really surprized me.
Because the theme was ‘Festival of Colours’ I just thought that the audience would dress in pretty, interesting & enticing colours, but, no….the guests decided to go all out – not just wearing colours, but also dressing up in their favourite costumes.
SURPRISING WINNERS OF BEST DRESSED MALE
The Best Dressed Lady wore a beautiful Lengha costume from India, but the biggest surprize was the Best Dressed Male. The winner ended up not being one person, but two people. They were friends, who both decided to come dressed as ‘Super Mario’ twins, complete with fake moustaches and full costumes, but the biggest surprize was that the ‘Super Mario Twins’ were not in fact males at all, but two girls dressed up as men. It was hilarious and they really brought the house down.
The Lucky Draw was also another highlight, because all audience members walked home with a prize. Most of the prizes were pre-drawn, but could be collected from the reception desk on the way out. However 20 super lucky guests got the really big prizes, which were announced by me, as the D&D emcee on stage.
The top 3 prizes were, of course auspicious numbers and all were cash ending in 88, with the first prize being $3,388. Naturally the winner was over the moon.
The year of the Horse has certainly galloped off to a very exciting, eventful & auspicious start.
Many thanks to Otto Marine Limited for choosing me as their first professional DnD emcee, and a huge thank you to Jack, Albert and the event company for organizing a fabulous, memorable and exciting night. Huat Ah!
