World Laughter Day Celebrations at the Zon, Johor Bahru, 1st May 2011
JEWEL was among several NGOs invited to open a booth at the World Laughter Day celebrations at the Zon, Johor Bahru. Held on 1st May 2011, the event was organized by the Johor Bahru Happy and Joyous Club. Hartdeep Kaur and Thanam Visvanathan-Suresh manned the JEWEL booth.
Johor Bahru’s very popular Member of Parliament Datuk Seri Shahrir Abdul Samad, who officiated at the opening, lauded the contributions made by civil society organizations to Johor’s social life.
The whole programme focused on laughter, being happy and wishing joy and good things for others. Members of the public were invited to write their good wishes down on paper and pin it on a Wish Board. There was also a very amusing laughing competition, which saw participants from various age groups attempt to ‘out-laugh’ each other, with hilarious results.
The drizzle later that morning drove some of the participants indoors, but failed to dampen the mood of the Happy Club members, who carried on dancing right through it!
