Celebrating the Greats 杰出的庆典

Entering its 6th edition, CHT Awards is now officially known as the CHT International Awards. This prestigious award presentation is no longer just recognising local Malaysians’ achievements, but also adopting a new category that honours international recipients who have remarkably contributed to their respective societies. With its motto of ‘Outstanding Leaders & Great Organizations’, president Ch’ng Huck Theng who also founded CHTNetwork had a vision to forge the spirit of ‘Where All Good Things in Life Meet’ – creating platforms where friends can meet to further explore possibilities and potentials. CHT Awards was one of the brainchild to unveil the contributions of individuals and organisations to the public; it also creates an opportunity for others to meet the greats in person. This one-of-its-kind award strives to acknowledge people and organisations from different industries and countries through real merit and contributions and not solely on fame and fortune.

迈入第6届的CHT大奖现已正式被称为“CHT国际大奖”。这项备受推崇的颁奖仪式不再仅认证马来西亚人的成就,同时采用全新的机制类别,表彰那些促进与贡献和谐社会的国际得奖者。凭借 “杰出的领袖与伟大的团体组织”的原则,由庄学腾创立的CHTNetwork有一个梦想:本着“遇见生活中一切美好的人与事”的精神并创造一个平台,让朋友们能进一步探讨可能性和激发潜力。CHT大奖是脑力激荡的产物,也揭开个人和组织对公众的重大贡献;并且创造了一个机会,让大家发掘人性之美好。这独一无二的奖励是给予那些真正付出功绩和奉献的不同行业个人或组织,而不仅是考虑名气与成功。

The Performance

The night started off with a pair of sister-brother siblings presenting a duet of The Myth OST – Endless Love together with the Master of Ceremony of the night Daniel Chan. Followed by veteran actress and singer Sophia Ibrahim. Renowned music composer Johan Nawawi chipped in to entertain the crowd with ‘Hanya Satu’ and international acclaimed violinist Tengku Ryo from Indonesia captured the hearts of the guests with his mellow violin melody.


首先掀开序幕的是由一对声音动人的姐弟歌手搭档合唱电影“神话”的主题曲-无尽的爱,由大会司仪Daniel Chan伴奏。其次是资深女星兼歌手 Sophia Ibrahim 的实力表演,而著名作曲家 Johan Nawawi 也现场呈献“Hanya Satu”娱宾。来自印尼的国际著名的小提琴家Tengku Ryo却以柔美激情的旋律迅速捕捉现场听众的心。


The Birthdays

One distinctive thing about CHT Awards is that it is not only prestigious, but also with a heart. Knowing that some guests actually postponed their birthday celebration with their loved ones and friends to support the event, five guests were delighted with a surprised birthday celebrations when cakes and presents were presented to them accompanied by a birthday song from the floor. Guest of Honour HRH The Crown Prince of Perlis Tuanku Syed Faizzudin was also caught by surprise when the President of CHTNetwork presented a rare and old huge Coca Cola bottle as a belated birthday present knowing that The Crown Prince was an avid Coca Cola collector.


CHT大奖与众不同的是,不仅是满载荣誉,而且非常贴心。获悉当晚一些出席贵宾由于颁奖礼推迟本身与亲友庆生活动,精心准备了蛋糕和礼物,伴随着生日歌,为5名贵宾举办了惊喜生日派对。例如荣誉贵宾玻璃市州王储Tuanku Syed Faizzudin殿下也显得意想不到,当CHTNetwork的创始人拿出巨型罕见的可口可乐瓶作为迟来的生日礼物,因为殿下是狂热的可口可乐收藏家。


The Best Dressed

Although many ladies had dressed to kill, only five were chosen for their magnificent evening gowns. Dato’ Dr. Wenddi Anne Chong presented the Best Dressed mementos to the beautiful Datin’ Winnie Loo, Nadia Wong Abdullah, Lillian Tong, Shawna Yap and Jocelyn Coco.


纵然出席的女士们皆为盛装打扮,但大会只挑出5名最佳的晚礼服搭配。由拿督蔣慧瑩颁发最佳服装奖予美丽的拿汀卢妙卿、Nadia Wong Abdullah、Lillian Tong 、Shawna Yap 与 Jocelyn Coco。


The Auctions

Auction of the night is always a significant part of CHT Awards as guests will have the opportunity to have some fun and excitement in the bidding game and at the same time contribute to charity as part proceeds from all items sold will go to children in need a helping hand. Most of the sponsors for this year’s CHT International Awards 2016 chipped in for this worthy cause.




Touching Moment

92-years-old mother of award winner Dr Lee Kim Siea was the oldest guest in the ballroom. Dr. Lee was almost in tears when receiving the CHT Pursuit of Excellence Award and dedicated the award to his mother who came from China with nothing and succeeded in bringing up one of Malaysia’s best plastic surgeons.
