I'm sure many of you have seen the flyers in Guardian pharmacy where we can vote for our favourite brands.
There were 90 contested categories and 354 participating brands! Pheww! Some of the categories include supplement, healthcare, hair, body and bath, cosmetics and many more!
The place was filled with brand suppliers, media, clients, etc. Honestly, I didn't know it would be such a happening event!
Studio Lounge; very beautiful restaurant with great ambience and there's a second storrey upstairs!

Emceed by Xandria Ooi and April Kuan from Capital FM 88.9 =)) They were great emcees and very lively and humorous!
Opening speech by Ms Soon Ai Lan, General Manager, Merchandising.
Then, let the awards begin! So many awards were presented to so many different brands. However, some brands are more prominent than the others winning multiple awards. For instance, Blackmore ruled the Supplement category with numerous awards, same goes to Maybelline for the Cosmetic category and Loreal for the Face Care category.
Awards being given out!
Aside from the awards show, there was also a live feed to listeners of Capital FM by DJ Liang and Deborah just beside the stage just for this event! They were on air and their real studio is actually located nearby at the Tropicana Office Tower.

Meanwhile, guests were treated to some yummy snacks and drinks.
