 Halfway through the show, we started to feel a little hungry, so we went to the back to grab some bites! Oh, i found my favourite - Tuna & Salmon Sushi!! How wonderful!~ =D They have lovely durian puffs, lemon soft cake and sweet cold green tea too!

Local diector, Jack neo walked pass us, so we grab the chance to take a picture with him.

It was such an honorable moment to have the chance to be there, to experience the whole awards ceremony. Considering myself as one of the lucky ones to be part of this grand event (even as an audience) as seats are relatively limited and i am not even a superb blogger to desearve one of those seats in the first place. Therefore, i am really happy to be there with the rest. Never did i knew there were so many well-recognised blogger out there, where some were very inspiring!

In the gift bag for all attendees;

Thank you Omy for all the delightful stuffs and for this special invitation!
till next year... =)
