Relaunching MESYM, and some pictures of the R4R Event

Ops, it seems this content is not available in English. Would you like to help us translate it?


The past few days have been particularly intense for the MESYM team. The new website went live in the wee hours of 21st of April, just in time for the Rockin’ 4 the Reefs event at 11am. Before then was a flurry of action of migrating content, debugging the website, designing and printing the promotional materials, constructing the structure of the MESYM booth, and many other things. For now we’re secure in the knowledge that our tool is in place – the next step is to get people to use it!

Special thanks to the following people:

  • Leo the web master and closet geek, who single-handedly built and polished our new website;
  • Jun-E (me) the project manager, editor/writer, doodler, and doer of a million small things;
  • Chen Yee the designer with excellent taste, who provided us with the beautiful design of our website, name cards and flyers;
  • Gene who has weathered MESYM.com through all these years, and continue to do so with providing the newest content;
  • Sheena who helped us with the translation of the website (yes, MESYM.com has a BM version) and with posting other content;
  • Alizan, Jan-E and Xiao Ci who helped out at our booth at R4R

Here are some pictures from the R4R event, which went pretty well. We talked to many people who stopped to look at our display, and also networked with the other NGOs and social enterprises who were manning their booths. Cute little children came around to talk to us about anemones and clownfish; and we also got some I love coral reefs wristbands to support the reefs.

All in all, it was a rather fun and relaxed event.  Too bad it started raining at around 4:30pm. The crowd dwindled and we too packed up and left about 6pm.The past few days have been particularly intense for the MESYM team.
