Children of Chow Kit

CHOW KIT: An iconic sub-district in the heart of Kuala Lumpur rich in diversity, history, and charm. Today, it is a drastic change from its yesteryears, but how does it still impact the lives of those – specifically at-risk children and teens – who live on these very streets?

We’ll let them tell you their stories.

This is a brand new series about young people living in Chow Kit, produced in support of Yayasan Chow Kit.

R.AGE original series

The Last Survivors


Come February 2016, it will be 70 years since the final surrender of the Japanese army in Kuala Lumpur.

Sadly, the compelling stories of World War II in Malaysia are often lost, or hidden in plain sight. While other countries have fascinating war museums and guided tours of WWII sites, memories of the war in Malaysia seem to be fading away along with its last survivors.

The Last Survivors is an interactive online documentary project that hopes to bring those stories back to life, by speaking to survivors of the Japanese occupation, and bringing them back to the locations which hold the deepest memories for them.

Young Lions

But being a top competitive lion dancer is not easy. One of the young dancers we feature in this series is a five-time world champion, and he trains a grueling six hours a day.

R.AGE wins the United Nations Malaysia Award 2016

We received one of the highest accolades we could get – the United Nations (UN) Malaysia Award, for contributions to the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda. We were psyched to say the least, especially when we heard what the UN had to say about our work!

R.AGE Asian Media Awards

R.AGE named best in Asia!

Well, second best actually…

Our documentary project, The Curse Of Serawan, won a silver award at the 2016 Asian Media Awards!

We’ve won quite a few international awards over the years – the World Young Reader Prize, Asian Digital Media Awards, A+M Marketing Excellence Awards, etc. – but this one feels totally next level.

Our (relatively) tiny team was up against some of the biggest news publishers from across the continent, so to win silver was a real surprise and honour.

Here’s to many more great stories =)

The Curse of Serawan

R.AGE spent four days deep in the jungles of the Royal Belum State park to investigate claims of a mysterious illness among the orang asli.

According to the orang asli, the disease they call “serawan” is responsible for countless deaths, many of them children.

A child passed away on the first day we arrived at the village, and another man showed us his daughter’s death certificate, dated a few months earlier. Yet, the authorities knew nothing about it when we presented our findings.
