Gladiators & Goddesses…

Discovery Kartika Plaza was transformed into a Roman & Egyptian empire with its Caesar & Cleopatra theme for the annual SKAL International Costume Ball last week. Guests rolled up in some very impressive costumes, entering the ball through a pyramid entrance decked out as slaves, gladiators, thieves, Roman emperors, gods, goddesses and Cleopatras. A Gladiator Battle with some very hunky gladiators, interrupted the cocktail reception to announce the arrival of Skal chairman and Hard Rock Hotel general manager Jamal “Caesar” Hussein, who was regally transported into the event by muscle-ripped Centurions on a Roman bed whilst being fanned and fed grapes. Fantastic Egyptian-themed dancers performed for the crowds before Steve Charles of Dynasty Hotel (who looked more like Bacchus than Marc Anthony), as the MC announced the evening’s dinner and entertainment lineup, which included a charity auction and giveaways valued at some $10,000. Guests included Jeremy Cooper of Nusa Dua Beach Hotel, Urs Klee, general manager Kartika Plaza Hotel; Maurice Derooij, Malcolm Scott, Chrissie & John Lincoln, Josie & Markus Krickelberg, Putri & Herman Fiegl, Robert Kelsall, Margaret Helback, Jo Macfarlane and Nicola Scararuzzino.
