The Day Lions Invaded

Two red lions came a visiting recently to our new offices. Pens and notebooks were shunted aside to welcome the lions that came amidst much fanfare.

 

The lion dance performance is an annual observation at Havas KL and BULB offices. But it was double the luck this year because it was the first time we had a lion dance performance at our new offices at Jaya One, Petaling Jaya.

 

The lions went around the entire office, picking up angpows and offerings of mandarin oranges. The unmistakably festive sound of cymbals and drums filled the air while the scent of citrus added to the pleasantness.

 

We never knew that the carnivorous lions were partial to oranges. Hmmm. We hope they had their fill of vitamin C.

 

A couple of weeks earlier, we had a thrown a Lunar New Year luncheon with the mandatory Low Sang to observe and welcome a prosperous year for our entire group.

 

Celebrations are par for the course at our offices. While we observe the major festivals of Malaysia, they are not the only occasions that we choose to celebrate.

 

For instance, we celebrate our office space by investing bright colours and art motifs that lend meaning to our group philosophy.

 

We also celebrate family…but that’s another story we’ll tell you real soon.

 

We also celebrate closeness and camaraderie with an open workspace concept that break down rigid walls and invite collaboration.

We had TWO Christmas parties
Santa came to BULB twice. We’re awesome like that. Not that we needed an excuse to party. We’re a company that parties as almost hard as we work. Well… almost. Ok sometimes we exceed that. Because. Because? Indeed!   The first was a potluck extravaganza with mouthwatering goodies. Did we mention that BULB has a vibrantly multiracial team? We celebrate diversity in all forms but it is during our parties that our exuberantly multicultural backgrounds get displayed. Pies, curry puffs, rendangs, salads, fruits, you name it.   We upped the ante with second party which included our sister company Havas KL. Secret Santa left gifts for everyone under the beautiful tree. How he bypassed the biometric security, we’re still wondering, but we suspect it was an inside job.   Christmas tree – check. Santa hat – check. Red and white theme – check. Yuletide food – check.   Music? Check. Wait a minute. We didn’t just have some generic party staple to get the crowd going. No, that’s for the birds. We brought on the DJs and decks to set the tone for the evening.   If the eating and dancing wasn’t enough, an impromptu game of office-chair slide ensued later in the evening, with much screaming and sliding.

Bulb-Havas Mad Laboratory
Halloween Party
Guests at Halloween event register with transplant resource centre

Advertising agency Bulb Communique and sister company Havas Worldwide teamed up with the National Transplant Resource Centre this Halloween in an effort to increase awareness of the National Organ Donor Register in Malaysia.

 

Taking a tongue-in-cheek approach to the issue of organ donation at this spooky time of year, Bulb Communique launched the initiative during its Halloween party attended by its clients, staff, and professionals from the media and creative industries.

 

Guests at the “Mad Laboratory”-themed event learned about the process of organ donation from the resource centre staff and were encouraged to do their bit for society by registering as organ donors.

 

The event sought to bring to attention the fact that only a very small percentage of Malaysians had signed up with the National Organ Donor Register, and to encourage greater participation in this vitally important and life-saving scheme.

 

Speaking at the event, Bulb Communique chief executive officer Zain Amri Ayeob outlined the importance of the donor register.

 

“Organ donors save hundreds of lives a year in Malaysia, but there are still a great many people on waiting lists for these life-changing operations.

 

“By spreading awareness in this unique, tongue-in-cheek way, we hope to begin a wider conversation about the issue in Malaysia, and encourage people to do their bit for society and pledge to donate their organs after they have passed on.

 

“After all, one day it might be us or our loved ones who are in need of an organ donor to help save our lives.”
