Early this year, I heard about the Red Tour concert series of pop phenomenon Taylor Swift. Almost every one I know are excited about this upcoming concert so when I got an invite from AirAsia, the official airline of the Taylor Swift RED ASEAN TOUR, to go to Kuala Lumpur to attend the Red Hot Party of Taylor Swift, many of them wanted to join me! Hehe. But I tempered their excitement and said that it's just a pre-party but promised them to share my experience via this blog. So here it is! :)

On May 30, we (Earth Rullan of Earthling Gorgeous, Ruth de la Cruz of Ruthilicious, Nherz Almo of PEP, Karen Flores of ABS-CBN Online, Marita Galvez of When In Manila and Bot of Philippine Star) flew to Kuala Lumpur via AirAsia to attend this exciting event. We arrived in KL in the morning so we had some time rest, relax and prepare for the party.
So when the sun went down and the moon we went up, we headed to Mandarin Oriental for the Red Hot Party!
AirAsia, the five-time world's best low cost airline, is the official airline of the Taylor Swift RED ASEAN TOUR presented by Cornetto in South East Asia. During the Red Hot Party, the highlight was AirAsia's launch of the exclusive aircraft livery of the seven-time GRAMMY winner Taylor Swift!
The Airbus A320 with the exclusive Taylor Swift aircraft livery will be flying to the various South East Asian cities for the tour, including Jakarta, Manila and Singapore, in addition to Kuala Lumpur.
Aireen Omar, Chief Executive Officer of AirAsia Berhad unveiled the latest aircraft livery to be added to AirAsia's extensive list of unique aircraft liveries, and fans of Taylor Swift around the region will be able to see this special aircraft livery for the next one year, as this aircraft will also be servicing AirAsia routes throughout our network which spans 88 destinations across 22 countries. “Taylor Swift's tour will be kicking off in South East Asia soon, and we are looking forward to welcome Taylor Swift and her crew on board our special aircraft. At AirAsia, we‟ve always taken branding to a different level and this opportunity to work with Taylor and her team marks yet another milestone for us as we continue to build the brand globally,” said Aireen Omar.
