"Tan Hong Ming In Love" receives the highest award for public service commercials at the Asia-Pacific Advertising Festival.

The two biggest and most prestigious advertising award shows in the whole of Asia are ADFEST and the Media Spikes.

ADFEST was held in Pattaya last week, and ended on Saturday night, when the results of this notoriously tough competition were announced.

As always, thousands of entries were received from all over Asia -- mainly Japan, Thailand, Singapore, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, India, the Philippines, Indonesia and Malaysia.

This time around, the highest award for the Social Engagement (public service) category was given to a Malaysian commercial for Petronas. It received the Silver Lotus, with no golds given.

It was also the only TV commercial from Malaysia to have won any award at the festival this year.

And yes, it's the simple little commercial that you see here. Alhamdulillah!
