Eulogy Writing Competition

This is about the collaborate of YouthsToday.com x Obpedia.com they came out with this Eulogy writing competition to promote Filial Piety to college youths and English writing in colleges.

Okay what is Obpedia.com : 

Obpedia.com is Asia’s first internet based portal that provides a place to create Obituary, Memorials, Pet memorials & sending messages through e-mails and mobile phone. This portal provides a specific site that is interactive for posting information and also acts as a notification service for direct and personal invitation to relatives and friends on information such as the location of the funeral wake service, memorial services, religious prayer times, cremation and burial information. Many times we have forgotten our distant relatives and friends that we have not met for many years. It’s during the funeral wake services is where we see them again and keep the connected again. However there are times that we have even forgotten to notify them due to the stress, emotional and grieving state of mind that we are in, during the loss of a loved one

And what is YouthsToday.com and what they do :

They're a bunch of youth which do marketing with Youths In Malaysia,
Looking for youth leaders which need help in amplify their brand, helping young people to develop experiences that their brand can provide and to help them in making different in the community.

They are ready to help out the Youths out there.
"If you are looking towards something new and spice for your brand, we got the RIGHT technology tool and RIGHT light-minded youth crowd FOR YOU. - Youths Today"

During the Press Conference of EWC

“In conjunction with Obpedia.com and YouthsToday.com to promote Filial Piety among college youths and also to promote English writing in colleges, we came up with the idea for an eulogy writing competition and we were pleasantly surprised,” said founders Kevin Leow and Jason Cheong. 

“We thought the response would be poor as we felt that the younger generation of Malaysians are generally out of touch of values such as filial piety, but we are glad to be wrong,” said Leow. 


The winners are Jassie Looi, Kum Peng Han & Lisa Yeo

1. Title: Appreciating our ancestors and loved ones
