I just participated in the Mega Yoga Day organized by Mega Lifesciences,
in collaboration with Malaysian Wellness Society on the 27th October 2013
at the outdoor Red Carpet Avenue, The Strand, Kota Damansara.
This fundraising event aims to encourage Malaysians
to stay fit under its “Good Health by Yourself” campaign,
also in conjunction with World Stroke Day and Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Volunteers distributed goodies bag before the event after the registration done.
On the day of the event, I arrived at the venue as early as 6:30am.
The registration started at 7:00am and was then followed by speeches
from respective representative and celebrities.
The participating Malaysian celebrities are model Amber Chia,
Miss Malaysia-Universe 2010 Nadia Heng,
TV and radio host Wong Chui Ling
and Jojo Struys.
The inaugural event has attracted over 2,000 people,
including celebrities, representatives from corporate companies,
community leaders, government ministries and agencies,
volunteers as well as health enthusiasts.
However this event did not went into Malaysia Book of Records
as it was originally pledge to have 5000 participants!
