Hi everyone, weâ€™re happy to report that weâ€™ve found a better use for the empty spaces on our website; the answer? Art banners! Fortunately, the idea became a reality when Malaysian artist, Hariri Yusof, agreed to share his work with us.
Hariri, 42, is an art teacher at SMK Damai Jaya, Johor Bahru. Working exclusively in watercolours, he enjoys painting idyllic images of kampung life and natural surroundings. His artwork definitely heightens the visual appeal of our website pages, and weâ€™re happy to do our part in promoting Malaysian art and culture to our visitors.
Hereâ€™s one of our favourite watercolour paintings by Hariri
Hariri was recently given the honour of creating a series of stamps for POS Malaysia. The series, which featured palm trees, was launched on 19th May 2009. We hear itâ€™ll be promoted in Korea soon!
Hereâ€™s the first day cover of the Palm Trees 2009 series
These are Haririâ€™s paintings that weâ€™ll be featuring on our website:
Title: Pengkalan Nelayan Gelang Patah | Size: 21' x 29' | Price: RM 4000.00
Title: Rumah Kampung Parit Mahang | Size: 21' x 29' | Price: RM 4000.00
Support local artists
If you like Haririâ€™s work, tell us about it! Just use the â€œLeave a Replyâ€ form below, we look forward to hearing from you. Also, donâ€™t forget to check out Haririâ€™s official blog for the latest updates on his work.
“Thank you so much for all of your support for this year’s run. As part of the organizing committee, I am always surprised and amazed at the number of people that come out and participate in this extremely worthwhile event. We could not make it a success without all of you and we hope to make it bigger and better in 2009. See you again next year.” Said Terry Watkins.

On 8th Oct 2008, our team make their grand tour to Cambodia to visit both the Kumomo Schools in Kampong Cham at the Batheay District, approximately two hours drive from the city of Phnom Penh.
The launched was delayed, it was about 60% done now.
Thanks to Bernie and his team, the visit was great with they showing our team around the schools and meeting with the local district officers.
Local Cambodian kids
“In comparison, the youths in Malaysia are extremely lucky. We should all be grateful for everything that we have and learn to give to those who are more underprivileged than us,” Ammie said, after visiting both the schools.
On the visit, tour on duty.
“In these 6 days, we encountered joys and laughter, shocks and burns (sunburns). Besides the famous Angkor Archeology Park, Pub Street, Traditional Markets, Museums and Templeâ€™s visits, we have headed off the beaten tracks to a rural area, 1 hour bumpy drive from the Phnom Penh city, for visiting an under-construction school, namely Kumomo School.” Said Chinseng.
About Rural Schools Project & Kumomo Schools
The Rural Schools Project was initiated by the American Assistance for Cambodia (AAfC) in 1999, and the project allows private donors to build schools with matching funds from the World Bank and Asian Development Bank for the kids and youths in rural Cambodia. Both Kumomo Schools was built with money collected through Kumomo.com built and developed by 1.com.my.

Terry Fox knew personally, the importance of the need for cancer research. At the age of 18, he was told that his right leg had to be amputated above the knee as a result of bone cancer. During this crucial period, Terry saw the intense pain and despair of other cancer victims and was deeply moved. In order to raise funds for cancer research, he decided to run across Canada asking for donations. This became ‘The Marathon of Hope’?. Terry Fox died before he could complete his crusade, but his legacy is carried in the hearts of all who participate or donate to the Terry Fox Run each year around the world.
The run will take place on 2 November 2008 (Flag off 9.00 am) at Taman Tasik Perdana (Lake Gardens). Participants are to be at the assembly area by 8.45 am. All participants must run on the designated route. The Terry Fox Run is an all-inclusive family event and there is no charge to participate in the Terry Fox Run.

Elevyn seeks to empower marginalized communities by enabling them to sell their crafts via online stores. Additionally, it’s also a platform for charities and NGO’s to raise funds and awareness on their campaigns.
How does it work?
Everytime an item is sold, 5% get channeled automatically to a Cause that the Shop supports. This ensures that the business benefits not only the seller, but to the local community as a whole. Elevyn itself takes 5% for operational funds, with the rest going back to the seller.
Who are we?
My name is Mike Tee, and together with Devan Singaram, we received a grant from the MDEC Pre-seed Fund Programme to develop the project. The project is also a finalist in the recent Youth Social Entrepreneurship Initiative (YSEI 2008)

Sponsored Ads space will be available again from 1 Jun 2008 to 30 Nov 2008. The cost of advertising is RM3,600 for 6 months. All proceeds from this ad space will be donated to Kumomo Schools in Cambodia, to pay for the Internet connection.
Rural School Project in Cambodia was brought to a whole new height with the acquisition of the domain name Kumomo.com!
On 19th November 2006, the domain Kumomo.com was registered. The Kumomo Project has been developed by the team at 1.com.my to match ad space owners and buyers. At the same time, a portion of the money is donated to a charitable cause. The first charity organization the Kumomo Team engaged was American Assistance for Cambodia (AAC).
In the recent months, an anonymous corporation has expressed keen interest in the domain name Kumomo.com. After a few rounds of discussions, they have decided to take full ownership of the domain name Kumomo.com and would make the necessary compensation to the project.
Most importantly, with the acquisition of the domain name, they have also generously agreed to donate USD26,000 to build 2 schools in Cambodia. This is in addition to the sum that has been collected from all members’ contribution to the Kumomo Tree Project all these while.
“Thank you very much for your very generous arrangement and gesture to turn this sum over to us to build two schools. We are very grateful and so will be hundreds of Cambodia children who will benefit by gaining an education they would otherwise would not be able to pursue,” said Bernard Krisher, Chairman of AAC.
Upon this stage of ownership transfer, the ex-Kumomo team will change to a new name and the effort to develop this ad booking platform will continue. A date of transfer is not confirmed, rather more, it is assured that there are various plans to add a lot of new features in the next release to help monetize the spaces on Kumomo.com.
It is with great awareness that this sudden change would cause various inconveniences to members. Yet the apologizes will hopefully be compensated with the additional funds which will be used in helping to accelerate the process of putting more Cambodian children in schools. The construction of both The Kumomo Tree One and Two School in Kompong Cham province is expected to begin in mid February and should be completed in July 2008.
In the meantime, Kumomo members will be:
1) kept updated on the construction progress of the 2 schools
2) notified once our new platform is released
And with that, on behalf of the Cambodian children and the ex-Kumomo team, wishes to express their highest gratitude to all that’s been part of the success and happenings.

I have been following the development of this year’s Terry Fox Run, from the discussion threads of 1.com.my about creating the website and doing for charity and then on from the newly created Terry Fox Run KL website set up. I must say that I was truly happy to know that there would be a run this year as well, from reading your discussions, although it wasn’t officially announced yet :). I really enjoyed my run last year and was keeping a lookout to see if there would be one this year.
I would like to thank you and the rest of the team too, for contributing your time and effort in coming up with an online site where everyone everywhere can get access to information about this run as well as maintaining and managing it, not forgetting that you all do constantly send updates to us too.
I went for the run this year too, and truly enjoyed myself there being with everyone else soaking up the happy friendly atmosphere, although I didn’t stay long.
The people run for different reasons; I too ran with in mind the people whom I know have cancer, died of cancer as well as to give support in creating awareness. I didn’t run alone this year, I ran with a friend whom I got to know from last year’s run, and I got to know a new friend this year as well :)
I hope the proceeds of the run is put to good use.
