10 Facts & Figures You Might Not Have Guessed About Tatler Ball 2019
More Than 1,000 Canapés Will Be Served
Four Seasons Hotel Kuala Lumpur, which will host our iconic ball for the second year in a row, will serve two types of canapés at the cocktail reception that precedes the main event. According to Chef Junious Dickerson's calculations, if each guest is to graze on 3-4 bites each, a total of 1,008 hors d'oeuvre must be prepared beforehand.

Beef Or Fish, Sir/Madam?
Our guests have spoken and here are their orders: 192 pax chose the Fillet of Beef Tenderloin for their main course; the Cod Fish Viennese comes in close at 124 plates. Some 20 guests opted in for the vegetarian menu, which is no less outstanding—the Sous Vide of Cauliflower served with Espelette pepper puree and tempura florets gets a kiss of saffron, the most expensive spice in the world.
Bring On The Booze
Water, wine, whiskey or Champagne? Whatever tickles your fancy will be supplied by Moët Hennessy Diageo on the night of the ball. Our trusted wine and spirits partner will be keeping everyone well-watered with...
- 112 bottles of Moët & Chandon Imperial
- 102 bottles of Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2018
- 90 bottles of Cloudy Bay Pinot Noir 2016

45 Valet Parking Spaces
Those driving to the Four Seasons Hotel Kuala Lumpur can rest easy, knowing that diligent parking attendants will be at their beck and call. Arrive early, as the 45 valet spaces will unquestionably fill up.
Mind Your Belongings
A reminder to everyone to keep a close eye on their personal belongings (especially after having had one too many drinks). We expected a higher figure, but the Four Seasons Hotel reports that just 1 item of apparel (usually a dinner jacket) is left behind in the grand ballroom after most events. Worst comes to worst, ring up the lost and found department the morning after.
See you this Friday!
