The Malaysia Day Sape Tour official poster is out! Thanks to Eleen Foo for her effort!

We only printed 500 copies(100 in clour, 400 b&w) due to budget constraint-not enough to post them up everywhere in Penang & KL. But if you can lend a hand to forward this poster to all your friends, in facebooks, blogs, forum etc it will be visible everywhere and give everyone a chance to do something meaningful on this Malaysia Day! You can also help to print more copies for your areas/office/school/colleges etc.
