Yayasan Anak Warisan Alam (YAWA) is a local youth organization commited to saving the environment and our heritage. Kiehl’s recently launched their Rare Earth skincare line and opened up their new store in Bangsar Shopping Centre (Ground Floor, New Wing near British India) so it was an opportune time to contribute to YAWA’s Bio-Diversity Eco-camp.
Launched on 29 September 2009 the site was set up like a campsite albeit very comfy one in the middle of a mall 🙂 I was very taken in by the 2 young people playing Congkak – a traditional game – It makes me want to get out my congkak board and dust it down. Does anyone play congkak anymore?
It was a pretty informal affair especially as Kiehl’s is such a relaxed brand so after a couple of very short sweet speeches and a video with brief quotes from some local celebrities as to why you should go camping, it was all over.
And there were tons of celebrities present that afternoon, some of whom I recognized, most of whom I did not 😛 Daphne Iking came with her adorable daughter Isobel, crew from the 8TV Quickie, Aishah Sinclair, Jaclyn Victor, Zainal Abidin, Serena C of MixFM see if you can spot them below.
