Tech Awards isn't just about work. It also about having a great time!

Our guests were treated to a 'movie trilogy' acted by the team behind HWZ and HWM, complete with an almost unlimited supply of snacks, such as popcorn and 'kachiam puteh'.

You know a movie is beyond awesome when you see an opening scene like this. Check out the movie trilogy embedded below.

Soon after the awards presentation and 'movie trilogy' ended, a sumptuous tea-time spread was put out for our guests.

Naturally, this presents an excellent opportunity for our guests to unwind and catch-up. Here we've Mr. Vincent Sim, General Manager for ASEAN, Fuji Xerox Asia Pacific, sharing views with Mr. Tan Kee Hong, Managing Director for Corbell Technology.

Editor for HardwareZone.com, Vijay was also catching up with guests such as Mr. Vincent Yip, Deputy Director and Head of Singapore Channel for Sony South East Asia and Lawrence Tang, Senior Manager for Professional Solutions Company (PSAP) of Sony Electronics Asia Pacific (left and right respectively).

Elsewhere, David Chieng, Editor for HWM, was reenacting some of the behind-the-scenes moments when shooting for our mini 'movie trilogy'.

All our guests walked home with a parting little gift that's bound to bring them fond memories of our event. What could it be?

Well, it's a vinyl record re-purposed as a popcorn bowl. It's great for holding those popcorns we gave out.

And here we've the team members of HardwareZone.com and HWM who've helped bring about Tech Awards 2013 to reality - a special occasion that was several months in the making. Oh and not to forget Ken Koh, our photographer and designer behind the scenes who has lent his hand in some of the special assignments related to this event.
