TEDxKL Adventure:Move, Makan, and Munch: Healthy Living in Malaysia


Malaysia: The multicultural land of sunshine, irresistible food and…unhealthy people? Malaysia is currently the fattest nation in Asia with the average Malaysian moving less but eating the same much-loved but (let’s admit it) often less-than-healthy food. Healthy lifestyle advice can seem difficult to implement and foreign to the Malaysian way of life – but that’s about to change.

TEDxKL, in partnership with Amazin’ Graze, wants to inspire you to live a healthy lifestyle – the Malaysian way. Join us for “Move, Makan, and Munch: Healthy Living in Malaysia”, a 2-hour interactive workshop in which you will learn about the benefits of yoga as a form of exercise, and how to eat well without completely giving up on the delicious local cuisine. As a bonus, you will also prove to your taste buds that healthy can also be yummy with a snack sampling featuring various Amazin’ Graze products.
