Here are our key takeaways from dimsum’s Thai Pop event

Were you one of the fans who gathered in Shah Alam over the weekend? We kicked off Thai Pop 2019 with a bang, and it’s our loudest (and biggest!) mark yet. Not only was it our 3rd anniversary – yes, we’ve been streaming and thriving since 2016 – it was a great way to end the year on a high note. 

The dimsum team worked tirelessly around the clock to make this event a success, and it absolutely paid off! We’re so pleased that everyone, including our special guests, were able to experience it all at the IDEAL Convention Centre.

Scroll through to see some of the weekend’s coolest moments, and relive Thai Pop all over again – until our next event!

Bazaar

It’s our party and we want everyone to eat, drink, and be merry! We had a popup event in the concourse area ranging from food, beverages and mementos to take home. There were also children’s activities to ensure that the kids don’t miss out on the fun!

Colourful standees of noodles and food in a brightly lit area.
Boat noodles! Definitely a very tasty (and appropriate) Thai snack to have that weekend.

Make an impression, literally, by casting your hand in wax.

It wouldn’t be a dimsum event without – you guessed it – real dimsum! And Thai iced tea, obviously.

Press Conference

Happy 3rd anniversary, dimsum! We kicked off the event in style, giving a warm welcome to our Thai artistes as well. The coolest part? When the group made their grand appearance – note the excitement in the audience!

Showcase

The moment everyone has been waiting for! Fans eagerly gather to watch the performances of their idols. Some even brought their own signs to cheer them on! The energy was through the roof, making it a weekend to remember for fans, and the stars themselves.

And what a wrap it was! The dimsum team walked away with tired feet, but a satisfied and fuller heart. We are so pleased that Thai Pop was well-received and we look forward to more exciting moments in 2020!
