Play It Forward

On Sunday, Causeway Point mall had something special in store.
At the atrium area, there was a huge pool of colorful balls, with kids doing what they do best - having fun!

This was the largest pool of (100,000) balls in Singapore, making an entry in the Singapore Book of Records. Every child wanted to be there - including Ayla and Adi. We soon realized that this was a charity event to raise funds for needy families. Now that's a good cause, and it certainly had my attention.

This was the 1st in a series of year-long charity events, launched by Frasers Centrepoint Malls - called 'Play It Forward'.
