3 May 2013 – They are no strangers to Singaporeans – all 600 of them.
The Moove Media cows will once again graze Singapore landscapes from today until 26 May 2013. Moove Media, the advertising arm of ComfortDelGro Corporation Limited, has teamed up with the
National Parks Board (NParks) to launch ”Happy Cows, Happy Hearts”, a campaign which aims to celebrate Singapore as a City in a Garden as well as promote graciousness and kindness amongst the public at large.
All 600 cows, which are made using recycled plywood and printed using eco-solvent ink, carry a red heart each on their backs. They will be displayed alongside over 1,000 30-inch wide red hearts made up of fiberglass at about 50 locations including Raffles Place, Orchard Road, Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay, Fort Canning, Braddell and Sengkang.
Moove cows made their debut in 2005, and about 6,000 cows have since grazed the landscapes.Said Mrs Jayne Kwek, CEO of Moove Media: “We wanted our cows and the hearts to draw the public’s attention to the fact that Singapore has, in just 50 years, developed into a City in the Garden as it is today. The hearts further symbolise the need to care not just for the environment, but for everyone around us through acts of kindness.”
Mr Kong Yit San, Assistant CEO, Park Management and Lifestyle Cluster, NParks also said: “We are happy to partner Moove Media in commemorating 50 Years of Greening Singapore this year. As we look back at how far we have come in greening Singapore, it is also important for us to sustain this effort for the benefit of our future generations. We hope the eye-catching cows and hearts onthe grass and trees will remind everyone to care for our environment as well as the people andthings around us.”

They can then submit these photographs with captions in a contest via Facebook at facebook.com/moovemediaoutdoor.
