RandomActs logoThis arm of RA started about 2 days after RandomAlphabets.com (& partners) organised KL Freeze in Unison. There were too many calls for us to do something again and also spread the word out conveniently to like minded people.

August 2009. Merdeka Train Party.

Happy Birthday Malaysia. Imagine decorating the interior of a house like you would for a birthday party. That’s exactly what we did (guerilla flashmob style) in all seven operational KL Monorail trains that day, in conjunction for the 52nd celebration of the independence day. Because we love you.

Corntoz Pillow Fight Kuala Lumpur

April 2009. Pillow Fight.

In conjunction with World Pillow Fight Day 2009 where over 75 cities around took part, RA was organised the Kuala Lumpur Chapter. Members of the public were invited to bring their pillows and battled with strangers who at the beginning, middle and end traded smiles and laughter with each other.

August 2008. Read while Waiting Project.

Promoted on-ground and online for six weeks, RWP was an initiative that started in Kuala Lumpur, got picked up in eight other cities around the world.

Its two main objectives were to get everyone to start culture pf reading whenever they waited and to promote non-readers to start reading in a simple non-imposing way.

July 2007. Look Up More.

Agents were planted on the 2nd & 4th floor of KLCC, facing the pond outside, holding a banner each that had an alphabet on it. Collectively, the banner said ‘Read while Waiting Project.’ People below were looking up wondering what was going on, while agents below (at the pond amongst the spectators) distributed bookmark flyers about RWP. Agents inside left the building right before Security got really upset.

+ Heart logos. PRIDE & Eco Knights I Heart KL

June 2008. Something RA needed, as we ran out of personal funds. While raising funds for ourselves, depending on either of the two designs, 20% of purchase price, went to either environmental organisation Eco Knights, or PRIDE Foundation for breast cancer. Each limited edition t-shirt were numbered and tracked. 180 pieces per design. Sold out. To everyone’s surprise, even ours, Jason Mraz wore it on stage for his KL performance.

The (unexpected) highlight for us of course for this project, was when Jason Mraz wore it on stage for his KL performance.

Rob!

June 2008. Our version was Adrian! Agents went around a festival asking everyone, pretending to look for Adrian. An actual person, Adrian (the festival’s Director), went into hiding quickly after discovering that his subordinates had collaborated with RA. Festival goers speculated endlessly about the gangster Adrian was, the small boy that got kidnapped, or the debt he owed an Ah Long.

KLX

June 2008. Also known as the MP3 Experiment. Participants downloaded a 30 minute mp3 music file, layed with random instructions of what to do. At the precise strike of a 5pm, participants at KL Sentral simultaneously played the mp3 and were led unknowingly by the organisers to KLCC.

By invitation from hitz.fm,  we assisted them in organising Freeze for World Earth Day.

April 2008. This event, launched RA and gave us the boost to keep doing what we eventually did. The mission statement for this one, pretty much sets out one of RA’s main premise. ‘Where human beings get together to do something in unison, without speeches, or reference to their age, colour, sex, beliefs and background.’

The mission statement for this one, pretty much sets out one of RA’s main premise. ‘Where human beings get together to do something in unison, without speeches, or reference to their age, colour, sex, beliefs and background.’

A (large) group random strangers got together and stopped simultaneously for four minutes, unannounced. Hoping a turnout of 200, we were shocked to see 1000 over people. Organisers fled the premise shortly before Security indentified them as culprits.

+ Free Hugs

April 2008. Free Hugs is whereby someone or a group of (random) people hold a placards saying ‘Free Hugs’ inviting any member of the public to hug them. This was subconsciously and by default, RA’s first of many projects which doubled also as the beginning of RA.
