RED FM’s famous announcers JJ and Lil’ Kev tested the waters of unconventionality by strolling about 1Utama Shopping Centre in their sarong for Red FM’s Sarong Day.
They were accompanied by the lead singers of Myanmar’s first all-girl group, Me N Ma Girls — Ah Moon and Kimi.
In efforts to encourage individualism and tradition, Sarong Day on Jan 16 is but one in a series of events.
It is aimed at injecting local flavour by plotting a different day on their WTF Calendar to celebrate Malaysia’s diversity.
“We wanted to make a point to be ourselves because people can be so aware of others’ opinions that they hide behind what society considers to be normal.
“It’s perfect for Me N Ma Girls to join us in celebrating individuality in our first ever Sarong Day because it’s an image they represent in their new single as well,” said JJ.
Apart from embodying independence and their uniqueness in their new single Girl Strong, Me N Ma Girls also advocate equality for all.
“It’s part of our main desire and our goal to care for orphans and women,” said Ah Moon.
“What we love about Malaysians is the way they hold on to culture and the wide array of food,” she said.
This is the second visit to Malaysia for Ah Moon and Kimi.
Sarong Day was a suggestion by a Red Breakfast WTF show caller, while local celebrity guests are also given the opportunity to name a day in the WTF Calendar.
