I have a little confession though. I am just one person, one entrepreneur…. one 25 year old boy dressed in a suit.
I could not possibly be where I am today, if it were not for the people who supported me. These people were the ones who put me where I am today and these are the people whom this award collectively belongs to. I am merely accepting this award on their behalf.
So to both my parents, to my partner Ming, to my fellow colleagues in Nuffnang, to the wonderful blogger friends that I have made, to my clients and to my friend and mentors who have held my hand along the way.
Thank you for giving me the blessing of your blessing." - end of speech
Then after the other two winners gave their speeches we had a photo session.
This is us on stage. I'm the 3rd from the left. On my right is Tan Sri Lee Kim Yew, the Founder of Country Heights and also the man responsible for building the Mines Resort.
Then towards my left is Bob Chua, Ganesh Kumar and the Minister of Science Technology and Innovation (YB Datuk Dr. Maximus Ongkili).
After the photo session we each took turns to get interviewed by 8TV for the news segment. Look how awkward I looked. I'm not used to all the attention.
