I did not know what to expect as I have never been to a food award before..but I knew one thing..I jumped at the chance to attend it when I heard I will get to know the best eateries in town....I went even when I was sick!!!! We were told to dress up as it was a formal event which I was glad to do so.... finally get to use the dresses that I bought for an event such as this..but somehow never wear(Girls do this all the time!! I wonder why?!?)
Was greeted by friendly receptionists when I entered Solaris Dutamas where the venue of the event is held....and as I exited the escalators,this is what I saw.....
A wall filled with delicious pictrues of food......to die for!! Love the tagline "from simple to sensational"
The desserts..yumzzzzzzz..Unfortunatey..I couldn't try any as I was really sick..and had to preserve my voice for KLIMS!
There was an art gallery where tables were set up for attendees to chill, mingle and eat...I loved some of the art pieces..felt a little like our First Friday's in Chinatown(Honolulu)
Of course...a picture with Andy and the ladies from Malaysian Hottest Bloggers!
The stage where nominees and winners stand.... creating the moment of excitement...
With Nicole who is a foodie lover too:)
Each seat had an Evian mist spray with the TOFKL magazine....that is a magzine I will keep untill I have tried out every restaurant in it:p

I am sure all the voters have good taste....you basically can't go wrong with these restaurants especially for dates....or holiday dinners!!!!
