This year’s Her World Woman of The Year 2011/12 fete was celebrated with a big bang at the Regent Hotel.
After a long judging process, Professor Ivy Ng was named Her World Woman of The Year 2011/12 while Ms Janice Wong was named Her World Young Woman Achiever 2011/12.
Professor Ng, 53, is currently serving as the group CEO of Singapore Health Services, which oversees two hospitals, nine polyclinics and five specialist centres. She was instrumental in transforming a hospital specialising in obstetrics and gynaecology to one that encompasses a holistic range of health services for women.
Wong, a 29-year-old culinary wunderkind, is also notably Singapore’s most prominent female chef, and has just launched her first cookbook, Perfection in Imperfection, debuted her first edible art installations and opened 2am:lab, a non-profit and independent culinary think-tank and test kitchen in Fusionopolis.
The guests from all walks of life, including previous Woman of The Year winners Ambassador-at-large Professor Chan Heng Chee, Ms Jennie Chua; Young Woman Achiever winner Ms Elim Chew and Associate Professor Fatimah Lateef also graced the awards ceremony.
Guests were treated to a sumptuous dinner including a special dessert creation named Chocolate Water by Young Woman Achiever award recipient Ms Janice Wong, owner and founder of 2am: dessert bar. Wong also created a special edible art installation titled “Woman with a big hat” for the night.
It was a night of inspiration, heartwarming speeches and amazing food.
