It was a victorious night for Quan Yi Fong and Pornsak, who not only won their first trophies in the “Best Info-Ed Programme Host” and “Best Variety Show Host” categories respectively, but were also successfully inducted into the coveted “Top 10 Favourite Female and Male Artistes” lists.

Accurately predicted by Toggle, Yi Fong was crowned the Best Info-Ed Programme Host for her performance in Where To Stay 2 at Star Awards Show 2. During her acceptance speech, the veteran host expressed her gratitude for production company WaWa Pictures and all those who believed in her.

While speaking to the media, Yi Fong admitted that she had always felt that an info-ed programme host needed to be very “rational and intellectual”. Calling herself someone who is “stubborn and random”, the 41-year-old had not expected herself to snag the prize. However, she is heartened by the recognition given by the media and judging panel.

“I have never imagined myself to win an award in this category. I thought I was the weakest link with the least chances [of winning],” she said, adding that she had put her dollar on Pornsak to triumph.

Now that she has been acknowledged for her work in this field, will Yi Fong venture further into the “intellectual arena” in future?

“No, I prefer being random,” the glib-talker replied straightforwardly.

Last night, Yi Fong also scored her ninth “Top 10” trophy. On stage to receive the award, she excitedly expressed her thanks to her supportive aunt and her precious daughter Eleanor Lee. “I really want to enter the All-Time Favourite Artistes hall of fame!” she exclaimed.

For the second year in a row, Yi Fong’s red carpet number was designed by Eleanor. The dress allegedly took three months to complete because they had to add “more cloth” during the dress-making process.
