Selamat Berparam 2013
RandomAlphabets is back with ParamKL 2013! In this latest edition, we’ve teamed up with the boys in red, FriedChillies.com, to expand our reach to TEN Params this year. We’re bringing tupperware to more and more people (about 2000 more by last count!)
Saya Mahu Picnic
A picnic that brought people together to soothe away the post poll blues. Many turned up in many colors, we sang, ate, and laughed together. A perfect Saturday we reckon!
Keretapi Sarong 2013
An event inspired by No Pants Subway, but you had instead to wear everything and a sarong to ride the LRT. Everyone was also encouraged to display “My first sarong story…” on a piece of paper to make it more interesting, get the buzz going and to relay to those around them the story of their first sarong.
We also had participation of folks from other cities such as Boston, Washington, Philadephia and Mansourah, Egypt.
KL Street Fighter 2012
In December 2012, we decided to create a real life Street Fighter match when you could once again decide the outcomes of Ryu, Ken, Chun Li, Hadouken…
A project that started off in 2010, grew in 2011 and turned green in 2012. This time around we decided that on top of facilitating the exchange of information on www.paramkl.com.my we would add on a green element. We distributed free tupperwares at selected Param’s in the Klang Valley.
We hope that albeit a small step, that this creates the awareness in the minds of people to be conscious of over-buying and to also recycle, reheat and reuse.
Keretapi Sarong 2012
The inaugural edition of KS where we took on the streets and trains by storm in our sarongs.
PARAM KL 2011
Pasar Ramadhan KL – We launched this project in 2010 and decided to keep it going in 2011, thankfully with the support from DIVA, the channel on Astro for supporting us as well as the many volunteers.
One of the things we did extra was to distribute free tuppawares at various PARAMs, car stickers, recycle mesh bags and more importantly contribute their reviews to www.PARAMKL.com.my.

Tali Tenang @ Bangsar LRT, 2010
After the attacks on places of worship, a lot like minded Malaysians were looking for an outlet to display an opposite message. Over 250 people got together wearing white tops, carrying Malaysian flags and tying their own piece of string with the string of another stranger attendee.Together, they walked from Bangsar LRT station to Bangsar Sports Complex.

Read while Waiting Project @ KL Sentral, 2008
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.
Look Up More @ KLCC Park, 2008
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 distributed bookmark flyers about RWP. Agents inside left the building right before Security got really upset.
ROB! @ KLUE Urbanscapes, KL Pac, 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 @ KL Sentral & KLCC, 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.

Free Hugs @ Tugu Negara, 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.
