#AnakAnakMalaysia returns for the fifth year with a fresh theme, #BetterMeBetterMalaysia. The theme carries a simple message: a better Malaysia begins with you. Stand tall and proud as #AnakAnakMalaysia, be the change you want to be and put forth the best version of yourself to welcome change together.
Bigger and better than before, #AnakAnakMalaysia boasts exciting additions you can look forward to. While its iconic wristband is inseparable from the campaign, this year’s edition will see new partners coming onboard in support of the initiative, namely National Geographic, RIUH and IDOTSHIRT.
Discover some of the highlights that await you at #AnakAnakMalaysia 2019 below:
#AnakAnakMalaysia 2019 Walk
For the first time ever, the #AnakAnakMalaysia Walk will be held on Merdeka Day in Klang Valley, Penang and Johor. The Klang Valley edition will be happening at Eco Ardence, Shah Alam, while the Penang and Johor legs will be organised at the Eco Terraces and Eco Spring developments, respectively.
Each participant will get a new #AnakAnakMalaysia 2019 T-shirt designed by IDOTSHIRT, as well as a wristband and limited edition pins to customise it with. Introduced last year, these limited-edition wristband pins are inspired by things that make Malaysia unique.

Uncover Malaysia Photo Contest
Open to all Malaysians, the Uncover Malaysia Photo Contest - jointly organised by EcoWorld and National Geographic - hopes to capture, through the lens of the people, stories that inspire a #BetterMeBetterMalaysia. To join, all you need to do is snap a photo on your smartphone based on the #BetterMeBetterMalaysia theme and submit both the edited and raw versions of your photo, along with a catchy caption, at the #AnakAnakMalaysia website.
Ketuk-Ketuk Festival by RIUH
RIUH is bringing its creative bazaar, the Ketuk-Ketuk Festival, to the Klang Valley leg of the #AnakAnakMalaysia Walk. ‘Ketuk’ means knock in Malay and with the Ketuk-Ketuk Festival, RIUH wants to awaken our senses to fully experience and appreciate Malaysia’s rich culture, creativity and diversity. Prepare to indulge in an amazing array of food, crafts and activities and be mesmerised by live performances at the festival!
This year’s #AnakAnakMalaysia 2019 Walk T-shirts is specially designed by IDOTSHIRT, known for its art-meets-fashion customisable graphic tees. The new design is inspired by the #BetterMeBetterMalaysia theme and features the local label’s signature creative art style.
#AnakAnakMalaysia is more than just a hashtag. It’s more than a collaboration between EcoWorld and Star Media Group. It’s a tribute to our unity and diversity. It’s a reminder that shows us that despite our differences, we are never divided in our love for Malaysia – and our local food and culture, of course! It’s also a testament to who we are as Malaysians. And who we are shapes Malaysia.
So #AnakAnakMalaysia, let’s embrace change and challenge ourselves to go beyond the norm. Let’s be better together, demi negaraku #BetterMeBetterMalaysia
