Malaysia wins her first ever Gold Lion for film in Cannes.

For the first time in the history of Malaysian advertising, a Malaysian television commercial was awarded a Gold Lion at the Cannes Advertising Festival, 2008.

That commercial was made for Petronas, and is entitled "Tan Hong Ming In Love".

Another commercial in the same campaign, "Race", was given the Bronze Lion in the same category.

This clocks up the number of awards this Petronas campaign has won internationally to 21, making it one of the most awarded advertising campaign, from anywhere in the world, in the last 12 months.

Alhamdulillah. I am both stunned and humbled by what God can do.
