National Geographic Store Launch, Lot 10 KL

Just so you know, National Geographic opened their first National Geographic store in Lot 10 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on April 7th. It's the second store in Asia and fourth in the world. And which, I was invited to attend the grand launching of the store happening last week on the 22th of June 2010. YB. Dato' Sri Dr Ng Yen Yen was there to officialize the store alongside with Tan Sri Francis Yeoh and Ruth Yeoh, the Director of Investments for YTL Corp Bhd.

This National Geographic Store in Lot 10 was inspired based on National Geographic’s 120-year heritage of getting people to care about the environment. Anyway, Here how the store look like.

Very nicely done. My friend, Wilson said it was better compared to the outlet in Singapore.

Press conference was held outside Lot 10. At the entrance.

Members of the media/press and VIP's was there. Eventually, It was quite grand and attracted passer by visitors to drop by as well.

After the Press Conference, all of us walked up to check out the store. On our way up, we get to see lots of people dress in costumes OR dress up in different themes from various of countries.

These guys are from Africa I guess.

Oh hey, im pretty sure they're from Mongolia.

In a way, we can also say that this store is an ideal one-stop shop for picking out gifts, hobby and interest as well. Attractive coffee-table books such as photography collections and atlases are readily stocked in the decorative bookcases. Not to mention adventure bags, collectible toys, magazines, T shirts etc. Worth it for adventurous individuals to drop by.

Let's have a look what they have there in the store.

Oh did I mentioned that they served us food and beverages as well! A concept from wide range of countries as well. America, Spain, China, England, Italian and Malaysia ! How wonderful.

Customers can also drop by to visit their in-store Café. A great place to hang out after your visit to the store. It highlights delicious treats ala Pinchos (a traditional Spanish way of eating small portions of food-on-sticks) within a Mediterranean-like ambiance.
