On 29th June 2007, I had the opportunity in helping a local media company (Cede Communications Sdn. Bhd.) to organise a bodybuilding event at oneof the pubs in the center of Kuala Lumpur. The preparation was done months in advance and we managed to get good sponsors for this spectacular event. Hugo Boss, Alain Delon, Bonia, and Nugeno were among some of the main sponsors.
The contest was opened for bodybuilders who never won major local bodybuilding contest (kind of like a novice event). This was to encourage more locals to pick up this lovely sport and hopefully they will compete in the future.
The pub was packed with about 250 people. They especially the women went nuts during the event. I guess they never witnessed before so many musclemen flexing and showing off their bodies at the same time. The winner took home RM 10,000 (USD 2,700) worth of products which was not bad at all!!
