Two days ago, I spent my saturday night at the StarHub TVB awards 2012 (星和无线电视大奖2012) with dazzling Hong Kong TV stars who were there that star-studded night. I was invited by StarHub, as part of the media, to cover this prestigious event held at Marina Bay Sands on 18 August 2012. You bet, I was totally dazzled by all the bright flashing lights from the cameras at the red carpet. I, too, somehow acted very much like one of those paparazzis, trying to fight for good photospot at the red carpet area and snapping photos continuously for half an hour. Well, that was quite an experience for me to be standing side by side with other journalists from well-known local news media. The man attending the media registration seemed shock that I came in a long maxi-dress that night because most journalists and photographers would usually come dress in black. But I wish I hadn’t wore a dress because I ended up climbing chairs, crawling and kneeling on the floor to capture that picture perfect moment which I somehow couldn’t capture in time with my DSLR. Blame it on my poor photographic skills.
Getting ready for the…green carpet?
Currently in its third year, the high-anticipated awards ceremony was held at Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre!
There was a reception before the red carpet event where food and drinks were served.
Before the red carpet event starts, the media and VIPs were treated to some delicious canapes and drinks by MBS.
It was close to dinnertime and most of us, who are part of the press, couldn’t enjoy such yummy fingerfood because all of us were stationing at our own photospots, getting our cameras all ready.
The hosts for the awards.Astrid Chan (陳芷菁) and King Kong (金剛) returned to host the awards show for the second time!
King Kong can really make the audiences laugh!
Local radio personality Huang Wenhong was also there to host the “green carpet event” where the TVB Hong Kong artistes were greeted by a frenzy of flashing lights and screaming fans.
