WEVents, a women-only social gathering, held its first event in Ipoh in conjunction with THE FACE SHOP on Saturday, October 14 at Mustard Sandwich House. Seats were snapped up weeks before the event took place as attendance fee of just RM5 per guest was waived for early bird registrations.
The interactive workshop kicked off with an ice-breaking session amidst tempting food. Running on the theme ‘My Face, My Look’, the beauty masterclass provided the ladies with a demonstration from the specialist followed by a hands-on experience for a 20-minute makeover.
Participants were in for a treat as they walked away with THE FACE SHOP products as door gifts and lucky draw prizes. The top five with the best make-up look were rewarded too.
Ipoh-born Jeanisha Wan, the founder of WEVents told Ipoh Echo, “We are definitely keen to have more WEVents activities in Ipoh after this and we hope we can bring the same fun and enjoyment to more working ladies here, as we did in KL.”
“And what really keeps me going organising activity after activity is the smile I see on the faces of our working women attendees at the event. That makes it all worthwhile. To know I have given them (working ladies, regardless of their job or titles) a platform to freely be themselves in a social event, with no expectations whatsoever for them to buy anything or behave/dress in a certain way. That they can call WEVents, something they belong to. Like a club of their own,” she enthused.
WEVents are non-profit social events organised by a group of working women volunteers in Malaysia since 2010. Their earlier events were held in Kuala Lumpur in collaboration with The Body Shop and Bobbi Brown respectively. The events are held in a casual environment with the objective of allowing women to have an outlet (vent) after office hours, meet new friends and catch up with peers. Operating as a corporate social responsibility towards working women, all sponsorships received by WEVents are in kind and are all channelled back to attendees.
