Media Briefing of New Membership Services Club, Sky Premium on 31 Aug 2016

I was extremely lucky to be one of the chosen few to attend the media briefing of a New Membership Services Club, Sky Premium on 31 Aug 2016.  

When I received the invitation, I was very curious about what Sky Premium offers and at the same time, I looked forward to one of the highlights of the program, which was a live demonstration of the Bluefin Tuna Cutting Ceremony.  I gotta admit that I have never seen a bluefin tuna fish before and to cut it up, I reckoned it requires many years of experience and acquired skills to do it properly.  

And I was so glad that I took time off to attend this very exclusive and interesting media briefing to learn more about Sky Premium.

Notice all the different coloured envelopes on the photo wall?  In line with Sky Premium’s philosophy of being connected under one sky with one common theme for The Good Life, media friends also had a chance to pick out exciting privileges from a photo wall, unravelling their very own experience of The Good Life. 

Lucky me got a one night staycation in Wanderlust Hotel… woohoo!  Thanks Sky Premium for this awesome doorgift!

The event saw a live presentation of a Bluefin tuna cutting ceremony where guests, partners and media friends got a glimpse into one of the many luxurious experiences Sky Premium has to offer.


Immersing in an afternoon reflective of The Good Life, Sky Premium delighted guests with a presentation of the Hon Maguro, also known as the Bluefin tuna cutting ceremony. 

Weighing at a whopping 60kg, the tuna was air flown from sustainable sources in Uwajima prefecture, Japan, where the Maguro cutting was then performed with utmost skill and precision by Chef William Teo, head chef of Takujo Japanese Dining at Emporium Shokuhin together with his expert team of chefs. Utilizing four different sets of highly specialized knives to fillet the tuna, including one that resembles a samurai sword, the delectable Hon Maguro was artfully plated for guests in a platter of sashimi, sushi, maki and a 6-hour braised tuna head.

Just look at how enormous the bluefin tuna was!  It took two men to handle it.

Gotta do it step by step

Appetiser


We started off with an appetiser which was light on the palate as it comprised of vegetables.

Next up is the star of the lunch menu… bluefin tuna!

Sakae is a must have with Japanese food!  Trying a rose sakae based on the recommendation from the server.  It has a tinge of sweetness so I reckoned it would be popular with the ladies.

I also had the chance to chat with Ms Margaret Koh, General Manager of Sky Premium.  She took the effort to work to our table to introduce herself and let us know more about Sky Premium.  That was when I found out that Sky Premium is also in Tokyo Japan, one of my favourite cities!

Margaret also said, “In a day and age where time is such a commodity, we often miss out and get caught up in a daily routine of things. Sky Premium offers that very balance and luxury of time, to enjoy affordable luxury in the pursuit of living the good life. I’m delighted that we had the opportunity to showcase a novel art form of the Hon Maguroa first-hand glimpse into some of the many luxurious experiences that Sky Premium has to offer. And we hope to continue bringing the good life experiences to more of our members in the coming months ahead.”


Panel advisors of Sky Premium, Allan Wu, renowned celebrity in Southeast Asia; and fashion- forward lawyer, Tan Min-Li, also warmly welcomed guests during the media briefing session.
