I was recently present as the official photographer for Abbvie's major event of the year: Asian Multidisciplinary Interactive Symposium in Immunology (MISI) 2014 at Le Meridien Hotel, Kuala Lumpur. This healthcare professional symposium calls for the convergence of 3 medical disciplines in the area of Immunology, mainly Rheumatology, Gastroenterology and Dermatology.
This 2-days educational symposium (25 - 26 January 2014) for healthcare professionals from both the private and government healthcare sectors is jointly organised by Abbvie, Malaysian Society of Rheumatology, Malaysian Society of Gastroenterology & Hepatology and Dermatological Society of Malaysia.
Students of Sekolah Kebangsaan (P) Methodist Klang, or fondly known as Methodist Girls' School (MGS) have something to look forward to in 2014. The school is now equipped with a fully functioning computer lab, thanks to the kind donation of refurbished desktop computers by Rentwise Malaysia.
On 3 December 2013, a team of 5 Rentwise engineers arrived at MGS to deliver and setup 43 units of refurbished HP workstations as part of its continuous commitment in ensuring Information Technology accessibility to all.
Arthritis has always been a vague understanding of a disease of the joints for as long as I can remember. I just know it as something that gives your joints the "wind chill".
So it came as a welcomed opportunity to delve into the disease when I agreed to take part in Abbvie's worldwide art campaign named "Perspectives – Art, Inflammation and Me", to offer my perspectives of being an arthritic patient.
Rentwise has recently returned to the Pasar Borong Community Centre (PBCC) at Selayang to celebrate Children’s Day with its Myanmar refugee children. My first visit with a representative from Rentwise was brief but truly “unsettling” to say the least.
I was present this round to cover the event and played my part in fulfilling my company’s collaboration with Rentwise’s CSR program in helping these kids. What I provided was a simple portrait session for the children, which would result in A4 prints to be given to them after the shoot.
I never knew there is such a huge community of Myanmar refugees in Selayang alone! When I was sent by Rentwise to do a feature story on one of the learning centres in Selayang, I was both intrigued and excited at the prospect of meeting them in person.
Much have been heard and spoken about the refugee community at large but I've never been this up close and personal. So, this is definitely an eye-opening experience!
