PETALING JAYA (Sept 14): Mall visitors have dedicated almost 10,000 notes, flowers and balloons for Malaysia as they came together in the spirit of the #SaySomethingNice campaign at Sunway Pyramid, running from Aug 31 until Monday.
Shoppers have been diligently drawing or writing messages in Malay, Chinese and English at the exhibition booth of the Pyramid Concourse, saying "I love Malaysia", "It's good to wake up to sunshine everyday feeling blessed", "Wishing for world peace" and "Cinta punya banyak warna tapi bentuknya tetap satu" (Love has many colours but its shape is just one), the mall said in a press release.
Shoppers received balloons tagged with a nice note to uplift them during weekends and public holidays as well as flowers, also tagged with a nice note on Malaysia Day and Independence Day, it said.
"It's indeed a pleasant surprise for us to receive the flowers," said shopper Emery Tan, who was at the #SaySomethingNice exhibition booth during Independence Day. "It really made my day."
"This is a refreshing reminder to us on the importance of words and how saying something nice makes a difference how we feel," another shopper, Chew Yee Wei, added.
"The response so far from the public has been tremendous and we are very proud to be part of such a meaningful campaign to spur the optimistic vibes around us from Merdeka Day to Malaysia Day," said Sunway Shopping Malls COO Kevin Tan.
Members of the public were invited to spread the spirit of #SaySomethingNice on Malaysia Day.
