SHOPPING malls The Curve and eCurve hosted a couple of fun afternoon outings for underprivileged children in an effort to spread the festive cheer and joy.
During one of the outings, 31 young children and five caretakers from Rumah Ozanam had a fun-filled day trying out a variety of arcade games and rides at CP Arcade, eCurve.
The children also witnessed a live musical performance featuring Miss World Malaysia 2015 Brynn Lovett as Princess Anastasia from The Curve’s Princess Anastasia’s Mesmerising Christmas Gala campaign.
To add to the joy, the children also received Christmas goodie bags followed by a sweet treat at Paddington House of Pancakes.
“Being able to share the joy and excitement that comes with the year-end festive season with these children has been a delight,” said The Curve general manager Jazmi Kamarudin.
He said The Curve looked forward to supporting more underprivileged communities in the near future as it was a meaningful day not only for the children but also for the mall.
Similarly, 17 children from Angel Children’s Home had a fun time at CP Arcade which was followed by a dazzling dance performance by characters from eCurve’s Misty Belle and her BFF’s Come to Life Christmas campaign.
Nine-year-old Yap Min Huey from Angel Children’s Home said spending the day at the mall was one of her favourite outings this year because of the fun and exciting activities.
“Thank you eCurve for arranging such an enjoyable afternoon for me and my friends. Playing at the arcade centre was something new for me and I really enjoyed it,” Yap said.
The children were later treated to a scrumptious dinner of Korean-style gourmet fried chicken co-sponsored by Pelicana Chicken.
They were each given a Christmas goodie bag to end things on a sweet note.
eCurve centre manager Azizul Hisham Ahmad said this year’s Christmas campaign revolved around friendship, camaraderie and fun.
“We want to share that playful and joyous atmosphere with underprivileged children so that they too can have a celebration to remember.
“It was a great pleasure for us to see the smiles on their faces and we are glad to have brighten their lives this festive season,” he added.
