Jamaliah Jamaluddin, Bandar Utama, Selangor’s State Assemblywoman who is known for championing issues on race, immigration, climate change, youth and women empowerment also attended the meeting as the guest of honour.

She commended the effort that the association took especially for people facing mental and emotional issues post-pandemic that are in need of frequent communication after living in isolation for so long without social interaction.

“(Laughter) Yoga is actually one of the ways or practice that actually helps a lot of rakyat Malaysia (people of the country) so that they know they can actually have a healthier lifestyle and good mental health,” she said, addressing the core activity of the organisation.

The event held various activities from singing and dancing, a presentation on Laughter Yoga for Unity, Laughter Yoga Testimony, Celebration Laughter by World Laughing Competition Champion, Taramaraju, The Business of Laughter presentation, Brain Gym Laughter and Kara Sherman’s Affirmation Laughter video before it closing the event with Laugh for World Peace by Assistant Organising Chairperson, Koh Mui Cheng.
