  • qwazymonkey says:

    sighs, another event that I couldn’t make it. Looks like you guys had fun!

    But I have my doubts over some of the winners leh…I’m sure there are other lesser known ones which are terra-menerra too! But then again, I didn’t vote, so I’ll have to hold my peace til the next elections.

    Happy Easter 🙂

  • Agnes Cheong says:

    Linked u to my blog~~wont mind rite?

  • Life for Beginners says:

    Yay! That was fast! Very nice collage too… captures the spirit of the night real well.

    And I’m certainly happy with the first winner since it’s my Saturday morning favourite (when I’m in town, that is).

    Plus, the whole lot of us (well, just the foodbloggers and me) went to Ampang to try Burger Om right after the awards ceremony. It was every bit as good as it looked on video! 😀

  • thenomadGourmand says:

    Really? prefer weekdays or weekends? i’m alws on lookout for makan-kakis!
    Saw ur camera..hahah..its gettin bigger hor..

  • CUMI & CIKI says:

    lol.. well, since this is the 1st awards the next one will probably be an even better representation of the real NO.1 (in its category) as more ppl will know about it and vote;D

    helo agnes.. no prob and thx for stopping by

  • backStreetGluttons says:

    O & S laksa ? and the other category receipients , even Village Park?
    omg , we are stumped ! The esteemed voters must be mostly PJ eataholics or Loyal Pj residents
    haha !

    But then again , thats the problem with this kind of awards ! 4 we would have turned it upside down ( coz we only agree with ciki)

  • Nic (KHKL) says:
