Astro #goBeyond for Merdeka Day

FUIYO, it has been 56 years !

56 years ago on 31 August 1957, it marks the independence of Tanah Melayu (Melayu Land), indicating that, from now on we are a country by ourselves now, no more colonization from anyone, or any party, we rule our own country. So in conjunction with Malaysia`s 56th Independence Day, Astro celebrates the best of Malaysia through a variety of activities on air, online, and on ground too, to spread the positvity and happiness of being a Malaysian.

The two campaigns that are running at the moment is the #gobeyond and #UrMalaysianIsShowing campaign, as well as the launch of a new music video, entitled "Excuse me Sir, your Malaysian is showing", that incorporated the unity and happiness of being a Malaysian.

It was my pleasure to be invited to join the on ground activity for the #UrMalaysianIsShowing campaign at Mid Valley. That was a truly Malaysian event because all of us were given with a list of positive and also Malaysian related tasks to be completed by a given time and the fastest to complete the task will walk away with MYR 700 cash voucher !
Before starting the game, there was a Go Beyond POSITIVE Meter Launch too !

Henry Tan, Chief Operating Officer, Astro said “This year, our Merdeka Campaign revolves around celebrating our uniqueness as Malaysians and encouraging everyone to do something positive to put a smile on the faces of others. We invite everyone to participate in our #gobeyond campaign and tell us about it on social media with the #gobeyond hashtag. Your positive action can be helping someone in need or even writing an inspiring message, which will trigger the Positive Engine. Every positive act will be tabulated. To date, we have received over 140,000 positive contributions and we are aiming to exceed the million mark."
I really enjoy doing the task after the launch, because most of it, is to go beyond and spread the positive energy to everyone around us or just simply making ones day by giving a gift to a stranger. I can tell you its great to see yourself drawing a smile on a person`s face.

Other than that, some of the tasks are...

Making a person`s day by giving them a flower.

Give a friend a backrub !

Show a patriotic pose.

Take a selfie with Jalur Gemilang (Malaysia`s flag). 

And the list goes on and on...

Unfortunately my team didnt manage to finish all the task by the time given so no pressie for us, but still congrats to the winners that walked away with MYR 700 cash voucher  ! Yay !

Dont worry if you have missed the awesome event, you can still show your Malaysian and spread the positivity and happiness via the social media platform.
