The Party of the Century

Written by

At Word we’re known for our modesty, which is why to celebrate 100 issues of our humble publication we staged the party of all parties at the end of July. We called it The Party of the Century.


The venue? Boudoir Lounge in the Sofitel Plaza Saigon. The invitees? Clients, readers, friends and in fact anyone who has a connection to our beautiful magazine. The outcome? A night of great food, freeflow beer, prosecco provided by Red Apron (it went fast) and Bols vodka and John Henry mixers courtesy of Alchemy. In all, a wild night infused with the Latin rock tunes of Bad Neighbor and fueled by the hedonistic party desires of our guests.


But a step back. 100 issues. We hit the century of monthly deadlines and monthly copies of Word back in April. In retrospect, the feat is quite hard to get our heads around — the late nights, the stress, the pain, the laughter, the fun, the fatigue. Not once, twice or 10 times. But 100. That’s a lot of sleepless nights


Dear reader, we couldn’t have done this without you. Dear client, you too. And dear members of the team at Word both past and present. Without you all and all your sweat, we wouldn’t have been doing this for almost nine years.


Time to make it a decade.
