Following that, the party moves to Asia and Australia on May 30, 8pm and then to the United Kingdom on May 31, 5pm (Jun 1, midnight, Singapore time).
Up to 1,000 guests can register for each party, which will be hosted on Zoom, and streamed on Zouk’s and STB’s Facebook and YouTube pages. You can register for the events here.
