Projek Kawan was started by our founder Ricky Soo first as a personal initiative to meet up with friends one-on-one. Then he started to do a small gathering in July 2014 for friends to interact with one another.
On 6th August 2014, Ricky organized Kawan Gathering #2 in the soon to be closed or renovated nostalgic hangout place A&W Drive Thru in Petaling Jaya.
The gathering attracted around 18 participants. The A&W restaurant was so packed and the ordering queue was so long that most of us gave up ordering anything. Instead, we all gathered in one corner and started our sharing session.
Few days before this meetup, Ricky was meeting friend Abd Azharee Abdul Wahid for an usual chat in Projek Kawan. Azharee was sharing his experience about sending signal to God or universe to get precisely what he wanted.
Azharee was invited to this Kawan Gathering to share about Precise Affirmation. He shared for about 30 minutes to the whole group. The authentic sharing was well received.

After that, everyone was invited to share something about themselves for 2 minutes each. Some briefly introduced themselves, and some took the opportunity to share the business or project they are doing.
A round of voting took place after the sharing. Alex Kani and Mack Chong received the highest number of votes. They were invited to elaborate on their sharing. Alex gave a positive and motivational sharing on his own experience. Mack talked about his stock investing experience.
Unlike the first gathering of only 7 friends together, this time it was a larger than expected group and turned out to be more like PItch ‘n’ Win then Kawan Gathering. Nevertheless, as a typical Pitch ‘n’ Win session, it has been good sharing among all participants.
