Movember 2015

This year for the first time I organised a #Movember #charity challenge at my company. Movember (a portmanteau of the Australian-English diminutive word for moustache, “mo”,[1] and “November“) is an annual event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men’s healthissues, such as depression in men, prostate cancer and other male cancers, and associated charities.

 I’ve had numerous family members and friends who have lost their lives to cancer, who are suffering from it now, and those who have survived this life changing disease. Though many we usually hear about are women, but let’s not forget that men too are victims of this disease.

A total of 13 men took part in this awareness campaign, and we had 3 sponsors. Sponsors are those who contribute $$ to see their candidates keep a moustache. By default for every candidate that took part, Rm50 was donated. At the end of November with many others jumping on the charitable act, a total of RM1,350 was collected, and donated to Mt Miriam Cancer Hospital (non-profit) (http://www.mountmiriam.com/) to assist needy patients.

Mount Miriam Cancer Hospital is a not-for-profit single disciplined cancer hospital which boasts of the latest-state-of-the-art cancer treatment in the Northern Region of Malaysia. To date, we have been treating cancer patients with three Linear Accelerators, PET-CT Scanner, and other diagnostic tools. Our medical team consists of highly qualified Clinical Oncologists and Radiotherapists, Medical Physicists, Therapy and Diagnostic Radiographers and Oncology Nurses.

 Since its inception, Mount Miriam Cancer Hospital is grateful to have received tremendous support from all quarters. Since 1981 till 2007, a total of RM21 million in donations have been raised. These donations were used to lighten the burden of many needy cancer patients besides funding the purchase and upgrading various state-of-the-art treatment machines. A total of RM8 million has been dispersed since 1985 for needy cancer patients while RM13 million was to subsidized the purchase of treatment machines and upgrading of hospital facilities.

Mean Machines 2010

Mean Machines 2010 (Penang) was held on the 23rd and 24th of October 2010. NutmegStudio was Official Photography Sponsors hence we all had the best seat in town. Not to mention we were also part time body guards for the participants of Miss Mean Machine 2010….LOL…


The 2 day, 12pm to 12am schedule was packed with machine action from base pumping rides,

to fancy Louis Vutton interiors

slick and antic bikes

 

 

 

to pimped-up cars,


 

and not to mention rubber burning drifting.

Which I guess is not for everyone… 🙂

 

Not only was the crowd huge,


there were also tons of photography enthusiast…

 

which I’m not sure whether they were there only for the rides, but am quite sure also for the Miss Mean Machine 2010 competition. The participants took to stride by posing with the cars on display

 

The event ended with the grand finals of the Miss Mean Machine showdown of the 16 contestant.

 

With the top three announced.
