Teh Tarik Memoirs Does the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

So, the global phenomenon is now going nuts and as expected, it has now reached the Malaysian shores!

So what this whole thing is all about is to raise awareness on Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease), a disease that effects the nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord, which then effects the motor neuron in the body. To this date, there has been no cure to combat this disease and has shorten the lives of many, including those here in Malaysia and particular the late football legend Mokhtar Dahari.

The ALS Association aims to fight this, through breakthrough research and awareness programs to help people understand further on what this disease is all about.

So, what exactly is the Ice Bucket Challenge?

The idea is to create as much awareness as possible on ALS and in the same time, to collect donations as many as possible. So with this challenge, you can either:

1. Make a donation at the official ALS Website
2. Take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge by dumping a bucket of Ice Cold Water over your head
3. Do both!

So, here in Tehtarikmemoirs, we don't do things half arsely, so I am going for option 3 which is to do both!

[Holy Moly that was Cold! But CHALLENGE DONE!]

So with that, I officially challenge:

 JJ, favourite local DJ from RED.FM

Fitness blogger and celeb, Fay Hokulani who I had the pleasure to travel with!

Social Media Extrordinare and Nuffnang owner, Timothy Tiah!

Consider yourself officially challenged guys!

So, I do implore that for everyone to really learn more about ALS as it is a very serious disease that we all can pitch in to help. It doesn't take a 10,000 dollars donation to help, as any would do. It's the least we can do...

As for myself, well...
