It's Thursday evening, how's everyone doing? Here's an update on a meaningful festive I attended yesterday.
In celebration of Syawal, leading pharmacy, health and beauty retailer Guardian Malaysia held an exclusive Aidilfitri celebration for 100 children from three orphanages across the Klang Vallery. The delightful evening of fun, festivity and food brings smile to the children, the event was held at The Place, One City.
As part of the programme, the children were also treated to learning the traditional art of ketupat weaving. Many enjoyed having their caricature drawn by an artist, took wefies at the event photo wall, as well as redeemed free movie tickets sponsored by MCT Berhad.
Can you spot the former 3R TV hosts?

I can see the orphanage children happy together in the night, some of them are cuddling the cute pink bears too. Each pink bear has a message penned for them.
At the Grand Ballroom foyer where the event was held, guests and medias were invited to dedicate Raya wishes to the children. Many penned motivational messages aimed at inspiring them. Aidilfitri Bersama Guardian is part of Guardian Malaysia's long-standing Corporate Social Responsibility efforts to give back to the communities they conduct business in.
Thank you Guardian Malaysia for inviting us to Aidilfitri Bersama Guardian.
