24 March 2011.Twestival KL .Its was a special day for Tweeps and non-tweets alike as we head with our heads high to Tweet. Meet . Give. To Aid the needy and poor. Since the 1st twestival held at 2009, it managed to raise over RM 11,000 in cash and last year globally, over USD 450,000 were raised for the charity as 100 cities around the world joined together for global cause. This year beside Kuala Lumpur , it was held at Penang too to aid Pertubuhan Masyarakat Prihatin which care for single mothers and children living with HIV/ AIDS .
Thanks to Ruby which managed to bought the tix for us (Zam which i meet during Bagan Lalang trip).Been told all the tix were snapped up within 24 hours after it was put on sale online. Managed to meet up with Suresh, Sharon and Yuli while at Finnegan's.Thanks to Twestival sponsor, we able redeem a bag load of goodie bag and second one after the event ended.Although I didn't win any lucky draw but I did win a special prize thru paper slip inserted into our goodie bag earlier.
It kinda fun to watch some of malaysian entertainers just few feet away like @willsquah , @elainedaly , @hansenlee working as hand to hand emcee to keep the crowd excited with lucky draw announcement and coaxing the crowd to part their money during auction. While Jit Murad and @kuahenhan tickle our funny bone in laughter and memorable moments and finally the songstress @liyanafizi charm us with her voice that night. Double cheer to Twestival Kl team for working hard to make it a successful event.Not forgetting the ice cream man too to keep us happy with steady supply of ice cream.
I'm quite happy this year goal for donation is surpassed and even @tigerMalaysia is giving us 3 barrels for the event where we happily toast to that!To donate and bid, please head to kualalumpur.twestival.com for additional info right now!
