Starhill premiers Jackie Chan’s Cafe

   
Jackie Chan entertaining kids

Kuala Lumpur: October 6, 2007

The Gallery of Rich Experiences will soon welcome another icon of creativity and charisma, which joins the Muse Floor in celebrating the splendour of the arts.

 

“My little dragon friend; Jackie Chan was introduced to me by my late wife, Rosaline and we struck up a close friendship and understanding immediately because we had a lot in common” said Tan Sri (Dr.) Francis Yeoh during the press conference announcing Starhill’s upcoming addition.

Jackie Chan, who is most commonly known as a comedian and martial arts expert, was also appointed as Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF and has contributed to Action in Mental Health, Operation Smile, Walk with Pride, Dragon’s Heart Charity and the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) to name a few.

 

Chan has also earned many prestigious awards and accolades for his charity, humanitarian and public service work and was included in the Forbes’ May 2006 list of 10 ‘Generous Celebs’. Chan has devoted time to a variety of endeavours, including good works through his charitable foundation, which supports youth development programmes, scholarships and support of the performing arts.

Tan Sri who was in awe of the works that Jackie has done said, “He keeps going on because of the people who are impacted by him. He changes lives.”

 

Tan Sri and the YTL Group have always maintained that “The greater the success we are blessed with, the greater is our responsibility to share the goodness of God’s blessings,” and this ideal is also shared by Jackie as he initiated the idea of Jackie Chan Café.

 

Jackie will premiere three café’s this October namely in Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and in Beijing. These coffee franchises is said to be the uniting force that will ensure sustainability in raising funds for the underprivileged.

 

YTL Group and Jackie Chan have joined hands in this entrepreneurial venture to ensure that Jackie’s cause for humanity will continue to be able to generate more, in time to come.

 

Jackie Chan Café, which will be situated on the Muse Floor at Starhill Gallery, will enable you to experience the arts in its different forms and sizes. As you sit and enjoy your coffee and harbour warm relationships, you’ll be able to soak in the surroundings, which are brought to live with paintings that reflect humanity and the reality of the world around you.

 

The loaded agenda of the ‘café with a dragon’s heart’ is that it brings you more than just good coffee. It aims not to make money but rather to give away money and that speaks loudly of the heart of its owner. A percentage of revenue from Jackie Chan Café will be donated to charity to further his good works.

 

A highlight of Jackie’s love for children is his Buddy Bear Colouring Charity Campaign, held during the opening, where all children can find their most creative expressions to add colour, life and imagination to their own masterpieces.

 

Jackie Chan, the man with a heart of gold has inspired millions around the world and now gives you the chance to be part of that cause. Jackie Chan café is a strong force for change as it aspires to make a difference in the lives of people.

 

YTL is determined to celebrate life in every of its endeavours. With Jackie Chan’s Café at the Muse floor, YTL supports Jackie’s unending efforts in charitable works with his Dragon’s Heart Charity that will help disadvantage children, not only in Malaysia, but all over the world.

 

In bringing joy to the lives of the community and in its commitment to bring art closer to people, Muse Floor, conceptualised to be a “Nucleus of Inspiration & Imagination” will be simultaneously launched with Jackie Chan Café. Experience a place where art is brought closer to the people as they share common human experiences like joy, pride and hope.

 

The official opening of Jackie Chan Café will be held in conjunction with the opening of Muse Floor on the October 27, 2007 at 3pm.

OFFICIAL OPENING OF JACKIE CHAN’S CAFÉ IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE LAUNCH OF MUSE FLOOR, STARHILL GALLERY

6 OCTOBER 2007

 

Celebration of Life

 

Good afternoon members of the media, ladies and gentlemen.

It is good to see all of you here today at Starhill Gallery, “A Gallery of Rich Experiences” where you will always find something or some events that are inspiring and life-enriching that celebrate the joys of life.

 

An Icon of Icons in Kuala Lumpur, Starhill Gallery is happy to welcome another Icon of Creativity and Charisma – the indomitable “Little Dragon” of Hollywood – Jackie Chan who is also a dear friend of mine to Starhill Gallery at Muse Floor, dedicated to celebrate the splendour of the Arts.

Jackie and I have gone back a long way since the days of my late wife Rosaline, and we struck up a close friendship and understanding immediately because we had a lot in common.

 

Jackie, although a globally recognised superstar and a hero to millions of people, remains warm, down-to-earth and always aware of his responsibility that comes with his great success. This is evident in so many of his charitable works as a UNICEF Ambassador and also for his untiring contributions to society from Action In Mental Health and Operation Smile to Walk with Pride, Dragon’s Heart Charity and the list goes on and on to benefit all kinds of people around the world … from disadvantaged children to the sick and elderly, cancer patients and victims of natural disasters and also for the improvement of education, medical aid etc.

 

Now, that generosity can only arise from a deep sense of responsibility that comes with his great success. Likewise, as I have always maintained, personally for myself and for the YTL Group - “The greater the success we are blessed with, the greater is our responsibility to share the goodness of God’s blessings.”

 

So when Jackie brought up the subject of Jackie Chan’s Café in Kuala Lumpur, I was excited and immediately thought that it would be most befitting for Muse Floor, which is dedicated to celebrate the splendour of the Arts. So what better match is there for Muse Floor than a word-renowned and well-loved Icon of Creativity in the Performing Arts.

 

Jackie Chan’s Café is of course also an entrepreneurial venture, inspired as a nucleus of warm relationships where all his fans and friends can catch up with each other and enrich their human relationships with the simple joys of sipping aromatic coffee, or chit chat over a refreshing cup of coffee.

 

Now, that is celebrating life by bringing people closer together with, as Jackie says …”the language of coffee, which is like music and movies, knows no barriers” in bringing people closer together. Besides, a percentage of revenue from Jackie Chan’s Café will be donated to charity to further his good works.

 

This indeed is an antidote to the stifling and prevailing culture of annihilation, greed and plunder that is so pervasive today.

 

With Jackie Chan’s Café at Muse Floor, YTL is committed to support Jackie’s unrelentless endeavours in charitable works with his Dragon’s Heart Charity that will help disadvantaged children, not only in Malaysia, but all over the world.

 

YTL is determined to Celebrate Life in everything we do from our world-class award winning resorts to our iconic restaurants and designer homes that bring joy to the lives of our communities, including our commitment to bring Art closer to the people, inspiring them with epiphanies of the sublime at Muse Floor, Starhill Gallery.

 

Therefore, in conjunction, Muse Floor, conceptualized to be a “Nucleus of Inspiration & Imagination” will also be launched with an “Open Living Art” concept where Art is brought closer to the people in sharing common human experiences such as joy, pride and hope.

 

I look forward to seeing you again on the 27th of October to welcome Jackie Chan at Starhill Gallery.
