More than 300 guests attended the Grand Hyatt's New Year's Eve ball, with the Russian theme Red Knights White Nights. Guests dined on six courses of Russian cuisine, followed by a dessert buffet in the hotel's Grand Ballroom. The room was decorated with traditional Matrioshka doll canvases, which portrayed Russian fairy tales. The Russian theme continued with a ballet performance and music from an 11-piece band. Guests took to the floor and danced into the early hours as the band filled the room with Cossack verve. Among the crowd were Aaron and Audrey Chiu, Mauricio and Kumi Giersztein, David and Noreen Richards, Vanessa Hui Cheung Lai-kuen and Julian Hui Chun-hang.
