There were many great upcycling projects by our participants and it was indeed a tough competition.


What did our judges look at?

Well first of all, we would ask is this item being given a second chance to be another item at home? Given a second life?

Then, we will look on the “creativeness and practicality”.

Last but not least, does the project involve the kids? At Parents Avenue, we like getting kids involved in all good things. We believe they are the future and “bringing the families together” is one of the criteria in this contest.

Therefore, after some long discussion and consideration. We selected Rae’s entry as the Winner!!! Yay!!! Congratulations!!!



The Story Behind This Project:

“Rae’s dream is to visit Giraffe Manor in Kenya so we made her own using our upcycled baby crib. Once Lili outgrew it, we removed the front, turned it upside down and attached it to recycled pinewood crates. The curtains and decorations are all fully recycled too from old party decorations that were rescued from the bin. Her favourite piece of furnishing is her rainbow floor throw, repurposed from her old trousers that had too many holes in them! ? For night time adventures, our Giraffe headquarters is equipped with solar powered lights.”


Thank you everyone for participating in our contest. Thank you Hyatt Regency Kinabalu for always caring for the environment and supporting this contest. Follow our Facebook page for latest updates, useful information, freebies and exciting contest lined up for you!
