For a couple of years now, Johnnie Walker® has continued to embody the spirit of progress with its iconic mantra, “Keep Walking”. This year, the brand brings this very belief to live through Step Inside the Circuit Lounge — the brand new race party platform succeeding the iconic Circuit Lounge series.

As part of this year’s Step Inside The Circuit Lounge, Johnnie Walker® brings its celebration of personal progress to a new level by getting talented individuals to share their success and passion for their careers as the brand’s Keep Walking ambassadors.

Two of the Keep Walking ambassadors are none other than the dynamic duo behind Omakase + Appreciate. Chong Yi Shawn, better know as Shawn, was crowned the local champion of the Diageo Reserve Wold Class Bartending Competition in 2011 while  his partner in crime Karl Too has worked at some of the most prestigious bars in town — including Tate and Skybar.
