Anyway! Today, Imma share with you one of the most prestigious and exclusive events in 2009. Hmmm.. it doesn’t sound right if I were to say “LAST YEAR”! Because it was only held in December, which was technically less than a month ago.
They feature 10 rising stars from various fields – only one of which will be entitled the Martell Rising Personality Award. Who could it be this year? I only personally know 1 of them, which is Will Quah. So I was already rooting for him since the public voting season!
Yes I’m bias towards a friend, why not? You would too, fo shure!
Hence, the Martell Rising Personalities Awards is recognizing these 10 aspiring young individuals who have risen above the competition to achieve a certain measure of success in life, while embodying the spirit and values of the Martell VSOP brand.
ALL 10 OF THEM
1. Cecilia Yong, Dancer
I remember her as the winner from the reality TV show ‘So You Think You Can Dance’
2. Chelsia Ng, Singer & Actress
A veteran in the entertainment industry, I recognized her since the sitcom ‘Kopitiam’
3. Chin Yew, Artist
5. Douglas Lim, Comedian & Actor
Both of them very the funnay. People from the creative industry are like that 🙂 ‘Nuff said.
4. Chow Hon Lam, Illustrator & T-Shirt Designer
He said he’s embarking on a project whereby he designs a Tshirt design a day! Whoa. Creative juices flowing like nobody’s business. Cool.
6. Nick Chia, DJ
He was addressed as DJ Guru-Guru (for corporate purposes) that evening but in the club scene, we all know him as DJ Ganja Guru! Just saw him spinning in Barsonic, Zouk last night
7. Nychole Leong, DJ
She was one of the winners of the JUICE DJ Talent Quest! 🙂 Now who says ladies don’t excel in the male dominant industry? DJ Nikki shows we can
8. Tan Sze Yoong, Jewelry Designer
That explains the embellishments on her dress! And check out those beauties hanging from here ears. Pretty!
9. Teresa Thian, Fashion Designer
Her boutique is at Bangsar Baru, it’s called GallobyThian. Funky name!
10. Will Quah, TV Host
The very fun and amicable NTV7 Breakfast Show host. I can vouch for that! 🙂
Moving on, the 10 personalities were selected based on their career achievements, potential for greater success, and a certain level of recognition within their own field and beyond. This year’s personalities, who have all embraced opportunities to rise above life’s challenges and more importantly, their own expectations.
All of them at the photowall
Niki who rushed here after ‘The Swimming Instructor’ drama
Glad ya made it in time!
Coincidentally, my flashgun’s battery died on me
when I shot this photo T_T
I almost felt like telling the joke here but well, let’s make it exclusively for Douglas Lim shall we? 🙂 hehe. Besides, reading it wouldn’t bring much humour
But that’s not just it!
Besides, there are plenty to go around! 🙂 Have it neat, on the rocks or made into a cocktail. Anything goes smoothly with that exquisite taste of a French cognac
But that’s not all
There were rose decors on each of the tables at the rooftop!
Pretty red roses *sniffs*
I know I look a tad worn out after the entire day -_-
This fantastic evening wouldn’t be made possible without the awesome people and team of Martell! Kudos to them! May these rising personalities rise further to greater heights
Maybe someday I’ll be in their shoes.
Maybe, baby. Who says dreams don’t come true? 🙂
