My restaurant, Chung Ying Garden and I were both up for awards at the Birmingham Awards at the Edgbaston Cricket Ground.

Unfortunately we didn't win our categories for "Best Restaurant" and "Businessman of the Year" but I was given the award of the event, the prestigious "Brummie of the Year" for my work for the community.

An absolute honour and in front of a pack crowd of Birmingham's VIPs, I had to do a karaoke song before accepting my award!

I would to thank Birmingham Awards and all the judges for voting for me
