Already known to be one of the most active societies in social media, Malaysians will be flooding timelines with photos of mouth-watering delicacies and rustic destinations. Thus, the duo who initiated Songs & Stories – Juwita Suwito and Gina Yap Lai Yoong, are on a mission to make these postings more meaningful. They are encouraging Malaysians to pause, dig in a little deeper and accompany their photos with fond memories and favourite hometown stories.
According to storyteller and writer Gina Yap Lai Yoong, “The big idea is to get people to share their stories via photos or videos on Instagram and Facebook. It is something that most Malaysians are already doing on a daily basis – sharing bits and pieces of their daily life online. But through this campaign, we would like to encourage them to share something positive, something they love about their hometown, something uniquely Malaysian.”
Knowing full well that Malaysians always look forward to a good meal, Songs & Stories decided to collaborate with Sepiring, to provide that extra bit of encouragement.
