Hehehe, the name of this award is so cute but behind it all it is actually quite punk and edgy with lots of fun! The annual Milk Awards, which is organised by the Hong Kong-born magazine Milk was held a few nights ago on the 3rd of July in Taipei and actually went unnoticed by me until today! It’s one of those casual, magazine popularity based awards so it doesn’t hold much meaning but it does mean a lot in terms of artistes being acknowledged by the public for their work. In terms of the work and effort given by the artistes in the past 12 or so months, I do feel that most of the winners were worthy of their win. They have demonstrated why they are popular with the audience and that’s more than enough for them to take home an award. Lego Lee took home Actor of the Year and that was no surprise considering his huge rise in popularity since he starred as the perfect guy in In A Good Way. The biggest winner of the night was Alien Huang who took home the top prize of Mr. Milk and Artiste of the Year while Singaporean twin duo By2 took home Band of the Year. Claire Guo who is currently in the midst of promoting her new album was also in attendance along with fellow musician Ann.

Check out the snapshots of the artistes down below. As you can see, it was a pretty casual event with the stars all rocking a Milk endorsed shirt. It’s no fashion parade but it’s nice to see the stars being in casual wear.
Yen-j and Ann.
Tony Yang. It might be a causal event but I don’t think wearing shorts is appropriate for this. At least he shaved his leg. Hehe.
Will Pan. Ummm, just no with the over, over-sized shirt.
Claire Guo. Aww, she’s so cute dressing in some fun colours.
Alien Huang. I didn’t recognise him at first! I think it has to do with the way he styled his hair.
Janine Chang. I love her outfit. She is definitely my best dressed artiste of the night! Causal but chic and stylish. Me likey very much.
Lara Veronin. It’s been quite a while since I have heard anything about her!
By2. The twins had quite a bit of controversy prior to this public appearance. They were accused of going under the knife due to an image which they posted online., with some even labelling them as “transvestites”. However, they showed up to the event looking quite different from the photo. Older sister Miko clarified that it was because of younger sister Yumi who went overboard with the photo-editing apps.
Chou Ssu-Chi. (He’s a baseball player.)
Lego Lee. Oh, my man. Handsome as always!
