That's what I felt when I was handed with the pink sash stated "Breast Cancer Survivor"!
It was my first participation in this kind of event and I was very excited for the Kiss Goodbye to Breast Cancer Charity Walk by Avon and eventually feel very proud to be one of the Breast Cancer Survivor-Pageants who joined the walk!

The event was held at Malaysia's famous federal administrative centre, Putrajaya on last Sunday (23 Sept 2012). Roads became a sea of pink as thousands flooded Presint 2 & 3 in pink t-shirts in support of the fight against breast cancer.
The 5km walk flag off at about 8.25am, after a Zumba dance warm up. It's impossible to 'rock' our body due to space limits! *sigh*
Throughout the journey, we were entertained and cheered by eclectic mix of groups at each station. A total of 5 stations along the way.
Another 4km journey when we reached Station 2. We was like "What??" Hahahaha...
By the way, there were local idols and Avon celebrities joining the walk too. We managed to catch Soo Wincci, Intan Ladyana, Dato' Fazley and Dina. However, I only helped to take photos for Tunung with Soo Wincci and Intan Ladyana. I was actually hoping to catch Scha Alyahya, but no luck! Huhuhu..
Even though, it was getting hotter, Tunung and I made it as relax as possible. We chit-chat.. we took photos... and we finally made it after one and half an hour! *clap hands*

Since we finished the walk a bit later, we missed the pink ribbon formation, a sharing by breast cancer survivor and presentation of donation cheques amounting to RM50,000 from Avon to Breast Cancer Welfare Association and Pink Ribbon Wellness Foundation.
The event ended with a "Go Bald" session by Michael & Guys Hair Salon, in hopes to seek support from the public to understand how breast cancer patients feel when they lose their hair during treatment. DC was one of the brave men for the shaving session. Thanks DC! It meant so much for us - the survivors!

Overall, it was indeed a successful event and everyone who participated for the walk is now apart of the Malaysia Book of Records for the Largest Participation Breast Cancer Charity Walk in Malaysia. *clap hands*
Everyone, please keep on spreading the breast cancer awareness! Pls remind each other to perform regular breast self examination for early detection of breast cancer! Trust me, prevention is better than to cure!
