1 pet food drive

To contribute, customers pay for their choice of pet food at any Pet Lovers Centre store at a discounted price and their purchased products will then be delivered to the beneficiaries at the end of the campaign. All pet food raised will be updated on the Pet Lovers Centre website, www.petloverscentre.com.my.

Treat yourself to a charming selection of renowned cedar wood sculptures by famous designers such as Paolo Pininfarina, Riccardo Arbizzoni, Aldo Cibic, Franco Bizzozzero, Mario Botta and others. Prepare to be “serenaded” with the embodiment of beauty from Riva 1920 at XTRA as the movements, cracks and changes in the appearance of the wood are intrinsic characteristics of these items and results from the natural settlement and diverse environmental conditions.
