PARTY PEOPLE: (Above) Farah and her husband, Iman, plans to use the party as a chance to spend time with each other.

There are still three weeks to The New Paper Party at Kallang Wave but tickets to the mega dance party at Kallang Wave Mall on April 4 are going fast.

One excited partygoer, who wanted to be known only as Farah, bought her pair of tickets on the first day of sales.

Farah, 28, said: "My friend tagged me to a TNP post about the party and when I saw it, I bought tickets immediately."

Apart from being Singapore's biggest indoor party ever, the party, which lasts from noon to midnight, will also be the first held within a mall.

Farah told TNP that she found the concept of a day-to-night indoor dance party novel.

She said: "I like to try out new things and the whole idea of an extended party which starts in the afternoon is very interesting."

Her plus one for the party will be her husband and the pair is looking forward to spending some alone time without their two daughters, aged three years and six months.

Farah said: "It's quite difficult for me to go out and have fun because of my kids so this will be a good opportunity for me and my husband to get away and let our hair down.

"It's gonna be a crazy night."

She had bought her ticket at the early bird discounted price of $40 (available until March 23).

Another partygoer taking his significant other to the party is Mr Simon Chang, 30, an engineer.

The long-time TNP reader read about the party, which will coincide with a total lunar eclipse, in the papers and thought it would make for an unforgettable date with his girlfriend of two years.

The New Paper Party at Kallang Wave will feature 50 top local DJs, live music and dance performances. (See report, right.)

Kallang Wave Mall is the official sponsor for the party, along with official smartphone partner Oppo.

Over 5,000 revellers are expected to party the roof off Kallang Wave Mall but one may stand out from the crowd.

Mr Tong Wai Mun is 65 but his age did not stop him from buying tickets to the event.

He told TNP: "Age is not a factor, I'm young at heart.

For Mr Tong, the highlight of the party will be the performances by the 50 DJs.

He said: "I love to dance as long as there is music.

"It'd be nice to be with a younger crowd and meet new people."
