EMMA LIZS boutique salon celebrated its 18th anniversary recently with a breakfast bash at PJ Hilton’s newly-renovated Kristal Ballroom 1.
Jointly-hosted by Emma Lizs founder and owner Alice Teoh and the vivacious Joanne Kam Poh Poh, queen of Malaysian stand-up comedy.
Teoh took to the stage to tell the story of how Emma Lizs has evolved over the last 18 years.
She also described new developments this year, with the introduction of a new team of therapists, facelift machine from the UK and a new therapy.
Everyone present was thoroughly entertained by a line-up that featured an informative session on how to personalise your own scent by Noreen Amore of Amore Rosso fragrances, sexy belly dance moves from the mother-and-daughter team of Pauline and Percy, lively hip hop performance courtesy of City Revival Boys’ Home, fan dance by City Revival Girls’ Home and a tribute to victims of the Japan tsunami tragedy written and performed by singing hairstylist Rick Lee.
Delighted guests had the opportunity to mingle and shop at booths with offers on Emma Lizs skincare products and facelift therapies, and also enjoyed giveaways such as skincare hampers worth RM1,000 and specially-designed Swarovski crystal lariats.
There was also a lucky draw where lucky winners walked away with exclusive Limited Edition Love Diamonds from The Carat Club.
The event’s most memorable moment came when Teoh announced a contribution of RM11,288 to the City Revival Girls’ & Boys’ Home.
Receiving the cheque on behalf of the home was its representative K. P. Wong.
Teoh had earlier pledged to channel a percentage of sales for August and September to benefit the children from the homes.
“We can think of no better way to celebrate our 18th anniversary than by giving back to a deserving cause. One that is closest to my heart is City Revival Girls’ & Boys’ Homes, non-profit charities that provide less fortunate and abused children with a loving family environment that meets every child’s need for love, hope, and security.
“Just like the homes, we believe we can help by impacting lives and imparting love, and hope to continue our support in the long term.
“Through shelter, education, counselling and healthy meals, the homes will be instrumental in helping these children heal and realise their full potential in life,” she said.
