Maybe we can’t afford them or maybe they’re just not easy for us to get to; however, putting these libraries up and making books accessible to people allows us to give them the opportunity to feel the joy that stories can bring,” added Apshy Vimal, Youth Ambassador and Project Lead, FtoM. Ms. Apshy Vimal, Youth Ambassador and Project Lead of Friends to Mankind, giving her speech during the launch at GSC 1 Utama.                Dato’ Paduka Noor Aini Datuk Abdullah, Patron to Friends to Mankind, sharing her support of the campaign with members of the media and guests.The mini-libraries are open to the public and are currently available at GSC 1 Utama, GSC IOI Puchong, GSC MyTOWN, GSC Melawati Mall, and GSC Setia City Mall.

The First Ever Queens of Asia Comedy Special Live in Kuala Lumpur This March!

As the world transcends into a female empowered realm, women of today rise above to celebrate gender equality achievements that have long awaited deserving recognitions.True to this stance and in conjunction with International Women’s Month in March, Malaysia will see the coming together of Asia’s 4 biggest female comedians in a stand-up comedy showcase like never before! Putting the “POWER” in empowerment, Queens of Asia Comedy Special will see each of these ladies bringing their unique comedy stylings to Kuala Lumpur for a one-night only extravaganza of hilarity and debauchery!Malaysia will open its curtains to the staging of the first-ever Queens of Asia Comedy Special on the 13th ofMarch 2020 at HGH Convention Centre, Sentul from 8.30pm onwards. Produced by Malaysia’s Queen of comedy herself, Joanne Joanne Kam Poh Poh, and presented by Deromp Marketing (M) Sdn Bhd, Queens of Asia Comedy Special will feature a line-up of all female comedians gracing the stage together for the very first time.Promising to offer Malaysians a spectacular and hilarious night of female liberation and laughter, the show will feature acts from local legendary queen Joanne Kam, Japanese comedian and youtube sensation, Yumi Nagashima, Singapore’s finest Sharul Channa, and one of India’s no 1 female comic, Aditi Mittal - all of whom have proudly earned their names in their home grounds as well as in the international comedy arena. With their quirky and wicked sense of humour, it’s needless to say that Joanne, Sharul and Yumi also took part in Comedy Central Asia in Stand Up Asia on different occasions.According to Joanne, “Comedy scenes not only in Malaysia but the world over remained male-dominated for the longest time. Male comics were the main features of comedy shows while female comics were restricted to add-on roles merely to fill in gaps. However, in the last few years, the comedy scene has witnessed a number of female comedians stealing the limelight and winning hearts all over the world. 2020is a year to celebrate women and their achievements and my aim is to do my part to amplify this through an empowering showcase of Asia’s top comedy queens performing on one stage for the first time ever, in conjunction with International Woman's Month.”In the effort to make Queens of Asia a reality in Kuala Lumpur, Deromp Marketing (M) Sdn Bhd and support from local corporate sponsors namely, Aforadio, AirAsia BIG Loyalty, Avenue K, Sirocco Hospitality group, Cinema online, Vectorsideco tour & services, Shawn Cutler and Qtic solutions, have been instrumental in making the show a meaningful success. “The unwavering support from our presenter and sponsors towards the staging of Queens of Asia Comedy Special in Kuala Lumpur will go a long way in giving women and Malaysians in general an opportunity to enjoy a hilariously momentous milestone where women and comedy are recognized and celebrated together. For that, we thank the show presenter and sponsors for their gracious support,” adds Joanne.Don’t miss this opportunity to be part of a first time ever female empowered comedy extravaganza guaranteed to offer a night of side-splitting acts. As a show of appreciation to their members, AirAsia BIG Loyalty will be offering 10% discount on all ticket categories for their AirAsia Credit Cardholders as well as BIG Members.BIG Members will also be able to earn BIG Points with ticket purchase – 1 BIG Point for every RM1 spent.BIG Points will be credited to BIG Members’ accounts within 2 months after the event date.JOANNE KAM POH POH (MALAYSIA)Armed with a distinct style of acid tongue humour, Joanne’s risque material covers everything from sexual misadventure to awkward encounters with rock climbing walls. With close to 30 years of experience in the business, Joanne commands the stage with “the moxie of someone who eternally skulling Red Bulls”.YUMI NAGASHIMA (JAPAN)From Japan by way of Vancouver, Yumi Nagashima’s sassy stage presence and unique worldview has taken the North American comedy scene by storm! A mainstay in the Vancouver comedy circuit, Yumi was featured in Just for Laughs North West and was a finalist in the 2016 & 2017Yuk Off Comedy Competition. Besides her work in comedy, Yumi also has numerous acting credits to her name, most notably HBO’s The Man in the High Castle.Singapore’s only full-time female comedian joins the show with her uproarious brand of acid-tongued humour, bound to leave audiences in stitches and begging for more. Born in India, Sharul’s family moved to Singapore when she was a baby. Armed with a diploma in acting and a Bachelor’s degree in communications, the tides turned for Sharul in 2016 when she was the first Singaporean woman to be chosen for the prestigious Melbourne International Comedy Festival, which led to a sold-out tour across Australia and Asia.ADITI MITTAL (INDIA)A comedian, writer, and actor, Aditi Mittal claims to barely manage these roles with competence, but that hasn’t stopped her from taking the global comedy circuit by storm, from appearances at comedy festival’s across the world to most notably, one Netflix special titled Things They Wouldn’t Let Me Say. Rated by The Times of India as one of India’s top 10 stand-up comedians, Aditi is a comedic force to be reckoned with, having been featured on CNN-IBN, the BBC, and Bollywood OMG.Show Details:Date: 13 March 2020 (Friday)Time: 8:30 pmVenue: HGH Convention Centre Sentul, Jalan Peach Avenue, Sentul, Kuala Lumpur, Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur, MalaysiaTicket Prices:Platinum - RM300Gold - RM180Silver - RM130Bronze - RM80

提高水源保护意识 Colgate与全民共创美好未来

马来西亚人每天平均使用210公升的水,超出世界卫生组织(WHO)所建议的165公升的用水量。数据显示,每10个人当中,便有4个人面临缺水问题。因此,我国急需教育民众应节约用水。为提倡有效用水,马来西亚Colgate-Palmolive继续推行 “节约用水”(Save Water)宣传运动,培养儿童精明用水的习惯。只要让孩子们在刷牙时将水龙头关上(#TurnOffTheTap),便可以在日常生活中节省大约15公升的水,这是加强人们节水意识必不可少的一步。去年,马来西亚Colgate-Palmolive与马来西亚Watsons及儿童尊严基金会(Dignity for Children Foundation)合作,教导小孩节约用水的重要性,培养良好的习惯。Colgate与马来西亚Watsons结为伙伴是必要的,因为从销售中筹集的资金将帮助许多贫困孩童获得全面教育。这项宣传运动也希望灌输小孩回馈社会的重要性,通过参与公益项目来改变子孙后代的生活。号召全民共创美好未来Colgate与马来西亚Watsons合作展开的 “节约用水” 运动已进入第3个年头,他们坚信,教育是减少浪费水源的主要方式,比如养成简单的节约用水的习惯。通过这项运动,Colgate和马来西亚Watsons为消费者提供了回馈社区的机会,也让他们从中学习一些节水知识。今年9月,凡是在 Watsons商店购买价值15令吉的Colgate产品,其中的20仙会捐给儿童尊严基金会。这项公益活动成功筹集了1万令吉。Colgate在活动期间的9天内走访巴生谷15所学校及儿童尊严基金会,并探望了914名小孩。Colgate通过各种互动活动灌输小孩节省用水的重要性。除了获赠口腔护理包,所有小孩也学习了有效的刷牙技巧,以减少用水量,并从小养成良好口腔卫生的习惯。
