Anugerah Bintang Popular Berita Harian, Malaysia’s very own Grammy Awards, is back! Next year ABPBH will celebrate its 25th anniversary and boy, will it be a big affair!
The press conference to announce the nomination was held last week and it was exciting! I had tagged along the content and video teams as they headed to Holiday Villa Hotel and Suites Subang. Obviously, we were there for work…and to rub shoulders with the stars. :p
Najwa Latif looks scared here. Don’t worry Najwa, Amir doesn’t bite!
A day before the PC (it stands for press conference, noobs!), the ladies from the content team had a furious debate on their outfits for the event. Serious questions such as ‘should we wear a shimmery dress paired with killer heels’ as the theme Big, Bold and Silver suggested or ‘do we stick to our casual work wear’ were pondered on. Yay or Nay?
Well, it was a loud NAY as we were specifically warned not to outshine the celebrities!
Not to worry though since we turned up at the PC wearing the most glamorous accessory; our smiles!
“Listen here, Angels. This is how you do it,” instructs Amir. L-R: Fanna, Hanna, Rizki and Amir.
Hanna must be admiring how nice Lisa Surihani’s hair is.
The three Angels in the content team were Fanna, Hanna and Rizki. And of course, Charlie was dear old Amir. These beautiful people were tasked to interview all the celebrities present. They also took turns updating ABPBH’s Twitter and facebook accounts to keep the info-hungry fans happy.
Hard at work?
Two Padawans-Hanis and Foo Soo-and their Jedi master Lobak make up the video team. Click, click, click went their cameras as they recorded and photographed the madness which happened that day.
“Testing one, two, three,” says Lobak while Hanis stares intently into the camera.
Then there were the two ladies who kept a close eye on everyone. Su Lynn and Hani made sure everyone did their job and got back to the office safe and sound.
It was a busy day. But my starstruck self was just happy to be surrounded by celebrities.
