The Malaysia Website Awards organised by Exabytes Group took place on 27 January 2018 in Selangor this year. We were originally supposed to go to Selangor to emcee for this event but due to a mix up, we ended up not emceeing for this event. We are still blogging about this event post-event, so here it is about the award night. The pictures in this blog post are from Exabytes.
