What a great honour to present 2018 Hong Kong Summer Bachata and Kizomba Festival, with the love, help and association of partners, family and friends.

You who attended and/or cheered us on are a blessing to us and the event.

Sincere thanks to you.

It will be a great pleasure to see you again for another round of Summer Bachata and Kizomba Festival in Hong Kong in August, 2019.

Thanks to our wonderful artists and special guests

Mitch & Ellicia, (I am still traumatized from seeing Mitch's decade old underwear, please don't ask me for any details. You can refer to Mickey Lee, she too was there, but seemed to enjoy the experience, hmm)

Nadia, Riquita, Nelson Campos (my dear Kizomba teacher), Alina (my new drinking partner), Marcos, Fly & Sofia (my old drinking partners), Alex Alberola (danced with all ladies in HK), Alexey Pekarin, Yassine, Frank & Chris Wong.
