"Streets has won the hearts and minds of Bandar Sri Damansara residents.
"This is the 15th year the executive committee is giving away this award which recognises our media partners who have contributed to the development and betterment of the Bandar Sri Damansara residents and township," Ravindran said at the award presentation ceremony, which was held in conjunction with the association's 15th annual general meeting.
