TO kick off 2015, Andaman Group extended its first charitable contribution to all three branches of the Kun Yam Thong Temple.

They are located in Kuala Lumpur, Tanjung Malim and Kampar.

A symbolic handover of stone art collage pebbles was held at Slim River by its managing director Datuk Seri Dr Vincent Tiew.

With this collage, they set to break the record for “The Biggest Stone Art Collage” in the Malaysia Book of Records, after having set the record themselves during their Mid-Autumn Festival celebration in September 2013.

This time, they used 250,000 pebbles in the design of the Malaysia map and flag on a collage measuring 17m x 24m.

The celebration was held in line with the group’s project launching at Slim River named Taipan@Slim River.

To make the successful achievement even more meaningful, Tiew said Andaman has decided to donate all the pebbles used to create the stone art collage to the Kum Yam Thong Temple.

“It will be such a waste to just throw away all the pebbles.

“Instead of donating money, Andaman is going to donate them all to the temple, which will be used to beautify or decorate their temple,” he said.

Taipan@Slim River is the biggest development in Slim River, with a total freehold land spanning 5.2ha.

It is strategically located along the main road and faces the Slim River interchange and toll plaza.

This commercial development comprises 111 units of two-storey and three-storey shops, and a double-storey hypermarket operated by well-known anchor tenant Econsave Cash and Carry (SLR) Sdn Bhd.
