celebrity sightings at Astro Negaraku’13 event at Midvalley Megamall
This Merdeka, Astro celebrates our very unique culture and way of life, our quirks, language, food, and actions that essentially make us Malaysian. Something that we would not change for the world.
Phrases like “Rilek-lah Bro!”, “Stylo Mylo”, and “Dah Makan?” are bred and born and tied to our Malaysian way of life.
celebrities include Datuk Aznil, Haniff, Lisa Surihani, Jie Ying with Astro COO Henry Tan
To kick off the Merdeka Celebration, Astro COO Henry Tan unveiled the #GoBeyond positive engine.
The positive engine is an effort to enhance the level of positivity in Malaysia during this Merdeka.
the “positive engine”, activated by positive tweets
The engine is powered by and activated by #GoBeyond tweets that spread positive attitude, with the very first tweets started from Henry Tan and celebrities including Datuk Aznil, Haniff, Lisa Surihani, and Jie Ying.
My very own #GoBeyond tweet – “push it a little harder, be it on the ball game or in the gym, #GoBeyond”
There were a lot of fans showing their support on the ground at the event outside Food Junction at Midvalley Megamall as well. It was a very “riuh rendah” atmosphere.
#UrMalaysianIsShowing tweeting challenge winners
The event also include a tweeting challenge participated by 16 groups of bloggers and twitterers. Each group of five had to complete a number of tasks involving updating their twitter and facebook with @UrMalaysianIsShowing and @GoBeyond hashtags. There was a lot of positive and competitive energy in this.

spread positivity and share it with #GoBeyond
My personal #GoBeyond act is to be more courteous on the road, especially when the traffic is bad. I will make it a point to always allow a waiting car to come out from the junction even if I have the right of way.
And as for this weekends – Merdeka! and relek k bro!
