Kym Ng joins the ranks of the All-Time Favourite Artistes

"I was so scared," Kym shared in an interview with the media after accepting her All Time Favourite Artistes award.

"I spent a month writing down what I wanted to say, one sentence a day. When I arrived (today), I heard that I’d only get one minute [for my acceptance speech], and I was so scared, because I had rehearsed a number of times at home, and it (my speech) was all around one minute and thirty seconds each time. But luckily, they allowed me to continue and finish what I wanted to say," she said.

As for her plans for the night, Kym revealed that she will be "heading home for a good night's sleep" as she has work the next day. After work, however, she will be having a meal with her fans, who've worked hard all these years, voting tirelessly for her.

When asked if there was anything that she'd like to say to herself, now that she's formally inducted into the All-Time Favourite Artistes Hall of Fame, she said, "Continue working hard, although it’s been 20 years, and you don’t know if there’ll be another 20 years (for you in the future), I hope you can continue to live vicariously, as always."

Speaking to the media after her win, Jasmine shared her thoughts on bagging the Best Newcomer Award.

"These two to three years have been difficult at the start, not knowing what I'm getting into, (and) not knowing what I'm doing," she said.

"But a lot of people have helped me along the way, and I'm very very thankful for all of the directors and producers that I've worked with for being so patient with me, a newcomer. And I think no matter how talented you are as an artiste or a newcomer, you really need that one chance, that luck, you really need that," she continued, adding, "In these two (to) three years, I've been very lucky, so I hope I'll continue to be lucky and I'll keep improving, (and) I'll work hard."
