ADAPT Flash Mob at e@Curve !
Monday, January 31, 2011

It was on one of those random days when Karen called and asked if I'd be interested to take photos of a flashmob event that was going to take place at e@Curve, Damansara. Since I had pretty much no life, and thought that it'd be quite interesting to see how a flashmob was conducted, I acquiesced, and started charging my camera batteries.

      Now, the flashmob was an awareness initiative organized by AFS Deaf Awareness Project (or ADAPT, for those who dislike long titles), an entity that aims to raise awareness of the deaf community and its culture among the AFS-ers as well as among our friends and family by introducing and learning Malaysian Sign Language (MySL, another acronym) in a fun way.



Mark Jason, fellow photographer. I was outclassed in every possible way, haha.



Adrian, one of the volunteers, in monochrome.



A light-hearted moment, before the start of the mob.

     The sequence of events were as follows; first, a song presentation by Shaenee, followed by a short (quiet) interval, then the surrounding 'shoppers' would run into the middle of the floor, and start their dance. After several minutes of gyrating to 'Firework' (Katy Perry), and 'Imagine' (The Beatles), they would then disperse, and keynote about ADAPT would be presented by Amalen.



1. ShaeNee belts out the Chinese New Year song...



2. ...Karen leads the mob to the catchy tunes of 'Firework'...



3. ...followed by some finger pointing....



4. ...mob sways and performs 'Imagine' using sign language...



5. ...something like this...



6. ...Shu Fei and Wilson hold out the placards...



7. ...while Amalen talks about ADAPT...

     Things went pretty much according to plan, and it was a very happy bunch of flashmobbers (is that the right term?) that gathered outside to take a group photo after the event was done.

Coincidentally, on the same day, it was the
opening of the Asian Games Channel at e@Curve, which saw a number of colourful characters walking around the place.



In any other context, this scene would have been very dodgy.



Of Warcraft fame, I believe.



Somewhat reminiscent of Counterstrike days.

And with that, the day was over. Kudos to Shu Fei, Karen, and the rest of the organizing team for a job extremely well done (and for a good cause, no less).



Happy, happy organizers.

Hey soonseng!! Nice writeup!

I think that first photo up there is Jason though. Not Mark. =)
