United Buddy Bears World Tour @ Pavilion, KL

Woke up early 2 days ago for the opening ceremony of United Buddy Bears launch at Pavilion.

A little fact for those who have no clue about the bears. United Buddy bears are a series of painted, life size bear sculptures from Berlin, Germany. The first bear was created by Kluas and Eva Herlitz from Germany.

The United Buddy Bears World Tour started in June – November 2002 in Berlin, Germany. So far the bears have travelled 5 continents and Malaysia is the 23rd stop and 17th country on the global tour.

The mission of the United Buddy Bears World tour is to deliver the message of tolerance, peaceful co-existence and support for children in need. The bears have become a symbol to many around the world as ambassadors to peace and unity.

Reached there early and took some nice shots with the girls.
