Green Treasure Hunt by Berjaya Starbucks Malaysia & Tourism Selangor @Hutan Lipur Kanching, Selangor

March 2013 was an exciting month for me. The 3 running/races and this Green Treasure Hunt organized by Berjaya Starbucks Malaysia & Tourism Selangor had completed the beautiful March 2013.

Hutan Lipur Kanching (Kanching Recreational Forest) is located in the Kanching Forest Reserve (Hutan Sinpang Kanching) and Lagong Forest Reserve (Hutan Simpan Lagong) which is part of the State Forest Park (Selangor State Heritage Park).
As usual, we took photo before exploring this beautiful forest for Green Treasure Hunt. With one of my teammate, Evelyn.
 Our team's name: "I Dunno" :D
I was told that this is Berjaya Starbucks Malaysia 3rd Global Month of Service (GMoS) - an annual initiative that is practiced at ALL Starbucks Worldwide throughout the month of April. During the Global Month of Service, Starbucks organizes on-going community service projects in which takes place simultaneously around the world
There were 500 participants joining this treasure consist of Starbucks partners (employees), business associates, customers, staff of Tourism Selangor, members of the media, and friends. All of us woke up early and were there to a fun activity as part of a community service project that addresses the local community needs.
 Spotted some participants came in creative "GREEN" outfits.
