 Ms Lin Pei Hua, Assistant Vice-President of Marketing & Communications of TANGS said, "As we're known as TANGS the Christmas Store, we certainly do not want to disappoint our shoppers who always look forward to our store decorations and window display. We're very pleased that ORBA has brought back this contest and we will definitely continue to support this wonderful effort!"

 Ms Wendy Low, General Manager of Frasers Centrepoint Malls, which won third place with The Centrepoint, said, "We are very pleased that our decorations this year have resonated with shoppers, we have also taken much effort to ensure that the Christmas decorations at The Centrepoint are environmentally friendly. Where possible, we reused recycled decorative materials from previous years. We also used LED lighting in all decorations to save on power consumption. This year’s decoration is visually arresting, spinning a new and fashionably updated twist to traditional Christmas images that everyone is familiar with."
