Kuala Lumpur, April 29, 2010: Merely weeks after opening its doors, the National Geographic Store in Lot 10 Shopping Centre has already received its very first international celebrity shopper – Malaysia’s very own Hollywood movie star, Dato’ Michelle Yeoh.
The star of the multiple Academy Award-winning action film ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon’ was visibly excited as she stepped into the store. Accompanied by the Managing Director of YTL Corporation Berhad, Tan Sri Dato’ (Dr) Francis Yeoh, Dato’ Michelle browsed the different sections of the store, intently going through the various travel- and exploration-themed items offered there. A frequent globetrotter, the international actress took a keen interest in the various world maps and globes that are showcased in the store.
Dato’ Michelle was also impressed by the eco-friendly design of the whole retail space, a key feature of National Geographic Stores worldwide. The store was built with environmentally sustainable materials and makes full use of daytime natural light. The created environment itself was designed to inspire visitors to be more environmentally conscious, and to take care of this planet we call Home.
