White flag movement in Malaysia #BenderaPutih

White flag movement Malaysia #BenderaPutih

The White Flag Movement, started by Malaysians, is a way to seek assistance from the community.
Raise the white flag if you need help.
We stand together in Solidarity to look after each other. ๐Ÿ™

The pandemic and lockdown has been difficult for all of us and many people everywhere are struggling to survive.

In Malaysia, people are struggling to survive, many are going hungry with no hope of help in sight.

The White Flag Movement gives a voice to those silently suffering and it’s a visual cue to reach out to their community without begging or being judged. It’s a lifeline and help has quickly been pouring in to assist those in need.

This movement is bringing Malaysians together, uniting us with a common mission to carry each other through the bad times. We have to help ourselves because nobody else is going to save us.

The unity and solidarity sparked by this movement, however heartbreaking the stories emerging may be, has shown me hope, hope of a better caring society, and a more profound belief in Humanity. ๐Ÿ™

A heartwarming Malaysia day story ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ๐ŸŒบ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ

A heartwarming Malaysia day story.

As we were driving home, my friend noticed a lady standing by the side of the road next to her car and asked me to stop to check if the lady needed help. (I secretly didn’t want to stop because we hear of stories of how it’s a trap where you get robbed by hidden thugs. I still have ptsd from my past experience) Anxiously I stopped the car…
My friend Belinda James went to ask the lady if she was OK and found out that she had a flat tyre.
“Do you want to help her?”
“I can’t help, I don’t know how to change a tyre!”
“I do, it won’t take long” replied my friend Belinda.
“Oh ok then” I replied feeling helpless.
My friend went back to the lady and helped her to move the car out of a dangerous spot and continued with the mission.
I was still sitting in my car with, it was raining.
Soon after I noticed a guy on a bike had stopped and was talking to them.
At that point I got out of the car to start recording. My own bias was what if the guy is going to rob us? I felt a bit anxious to be honest.
As time passed, it appeared that he was genuinely helping to change the tyres and he did an extremely thorough job.
At the end, the Indian lady offered him some money but he refused to the point the lady had to force him to take it.
This story really gave me some faith back in humanity at a time when I needed it.
Thank you Azrin. You not only saved the Indian Auntie but you saved me too.

Happy Malaysia day. To peace and unity ๐Ÿ™

The edge options. Food for a cause. Tiffin illustrated by Tiffany Choong

It’s a huge honour to be part of this project and to be given the oppurtunity to showcase my art. The purpose of my art has always been to bring joy and to support worthy causes like this one. I am thankful to be asked to collaborate in this project to support those in need especially in this difficult time. My illustrations are on the Tiffin carrier. My Malayan tiger was originally painted to create awareness for our critically endangered national icon and it is even more meaningful that ‘Bulan’ the tiger gets to have a platform to fight for its survival and champion this cause.

BOSSTOGETHERMY is a series of monthly gastronomical collaborations from August to December with different local Food & Beverage (F&B) partners in support of the local
businesses and the community during this period.

10 % of the proceeds
will be donated to The Lost Food Project, co-funded between BOSS and the F&B partner.
For the first partnership, BOSS teams up with De.Wan 1958 by Chef Wan to launch a truly
Malaysian menu in celebration of Malaysiaโ€™s National Day. Curated specially by multiple award๏ฟพwinning chef, Datuk Dr. Chef Wan, this exclusive menu consists of a five course authentic
classic Malaysian meal.

Additionally, with every purchase of this menu, customers will receive a limited edition tiffin
specially illustrated by the very talented local artist Tiffany Choong. The illustrations celebrate
the diverse and colourful Malaysian wildlife, flora & fauna. The Malayan tiger has been
illustrated specifically by the artist with the hopes of creating awareness for the protection and
future survival of this critically endangered species.

This exclusive menu caters for 3-4 pax and priced at RM398++. Alternatively, customers can
choose to purchase a 3 course meal for one person at RM109++. Both options include the
limited edition tiffin.
As a celebration of this initiative, customers will also receive a RM100 BOSS Voucher with
every order of the BOSS x De.Wan Exclusive menu.

“We know that this period is extremely challenging for everyone and we would like to do our
part to support local businesses as much as we can and also to help the less fortunate
through The Lost Food Project. With this initiative, we hope that we can encourage people to
pay it forward as we all continue to do our little part to support the economy.โ€ says Steven
Lam, Managing Director of HUGO BOSS South East Asia Pte Ltd.

Pet Portraits : Pebble the Golden Retriever

Golden retriever

“Isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes but when you look back everything is different ” C. S. Lewis
So tomorrow Malaysia will start opening up and allowing interstate travel and more businesses will be opening. It’s been a surreal 3 months where it felt like nothing changed for me at home, but in fact a lot has changed within me, a lot has changed around the country and changes are happening in our world. I hope our world will be a kinder place, a global home where we respect each other no matter the colour of our skin and background, a home where we embrace our natural environment and wildlife. ๐Ÿถ

Toots the tortoise

Toots the tortoise

Hello Monday! Is it safe to come out yet? I want to crawl out in search of greener pastures.

I love tortoises because they carry their home with them, they are so slow and steady and wins the race. Life is like that, it’s not a sprint but a marathon and we need to pace ourselves in order to get to our destination. Ive been stalking my friend’s pet and i think it deserves a drawing.

#Signup4my sign language video challenge for vulnerable communities in Malaysia

Please help to share and spread my message ๐Ÿ™

It’s Covid-19 lockdown day 41. For 41 days i have been at home safely reflecting and continuing on with my blessed life, but I know there are millions of people who are not safe, who are hungry, who are vulnerable.

MALAYSIA’S MOST VULNERABLE COMMUNITIES ARE IN DIRE NEED.

Communities that were struggling before covid 19: orphans, elderly, differently abled (OKU), homeless, and refugees, among others – need vital support. Many of our homegrown NGOs that provide care and support to these communities have been overlooked during this challenging period.

Not only are the NGOs facing setbacks in donations and volunteers, managing daily operations has become an uphill battle. To add to the problem, a significant portion now needs to be allocated for additional sanitation, delivery, transportation, food stock as well as hospital visits and fees.

I don’t have many skills to help with the situation, but what I can do is to stay positive, create awareness and donate money.

I urge you to do the same.
