Free yummy hors douvres come round through the night. Interesting mix of people.

• BEST RESTAURAnT foR A poSh nIGhT oUT:
Metis on Jl Raya Petitenget. Just opened in October 09, same owners as the old Kafe Warisan. Wonderful oppulent decor and worth going just for drinks as the drinks area overlooks the padi (rice) fields. Brilliant international food and it is possible to bring along a good bottle of wine for around $25 corkage if you managed to get it through customs. Five star all the way.
