MILO RENTAK AKTIF GAYA HIDUP NORMA BAHARU

Siapa sangka kan dalam kita menuju abad ke 21, rakyat seluruh dunia terpaksa hidup dalam norma baharu hanya gara-gara wabak koronovirus yang lebih mudah disebut COVID-19. 


Alah bisa tegal biasa. Agar serasi dengan rentak kehidupan norma baharu itu, pelbagai penyesuaian perlu kita hadapi  untuk memastikan kebiasaan terdahulu dapat diteruskan. 


Dalam meneruskan usahanya membudayakan gaya hidup aktif, MILO melangkah jauh lagi dengan mempersembahkan MILO Rentak Aktif sebagai pemudah cara rakyat kekal aktif dalam norma baharu.


Program gaya hidup aktif terbaharu dalam talian yang pertama seumpamanya di bawah gerakan MILO Aktif Negaraku ini bertujuan untuk memupuk kebaikan gaya hidup aktif dengan cara yang paling asas dan mudah untuk semua, iaitu melalui senam aerobik.


Dilancarkan pada 15 Ogos lalu secara penstriman langsung menerusi saluran Youtube MILO Malaysia, MILO Rentak Aktif mengajak penonton bergerak aktif mengikut koreografi mudah yang sesuai diikuti seisi keluarga dari semua peringkat usia yang dipimpin oleh empat jurulatih kecergasan.


Menurut Ahmad Fadhly Shah, Pembantu Pengurus Pemasaran Sukan MILO, Nestlé (Malaysia) Berhad, selaku peneraju pembangunan sukan akar umbi dan gaya hidup aktif di Malaysia, pihaknya amat teruja dan berbangga dengan sambutan rakyat yang amat menggalakkan.


MILO Rentak Aktif telah menarik lebih 250,000 tontonan di saluran Youtube MILO Malaysia. Malah, angka itu dijangka semakin meningkat kerana mereka yang tidak berkesempatan sebelum ini masih boleh mengikuti semula mana-mana sesi pilihan pada bila-bila masa sahaja, terutamanya sekarang sedang kita semakin berwaspada menjaga keselamatan dan penjarakan sosial antara satu sama lain.” 


Tambah beliau, “Kami komited untuk memperkenalkan inovasi gaya hidup aktif baharu serta menyuntik semangat rakyat untuk kekal aktif, lebih-lebih lagi ketika berhadapan dengan cabaran situasi semasa.”


MILO Rentak Aktif diilhamkan melalui aktiviti senam aerobik yang popular ketika Hari Sarapan Malaysia MILO sejak beberapa tahun yang lalu. Koreografinya pula dipadankan dengan bait-bait lirik lagu tema kempen Aktif Negaraku nyanyian Jaclyn Victor.

Lebih istimewa, setiap sesi turut menampilkan selebriti serta personaliti jemputan khas seperti Anas Tahir, Hasnida Hanim, Azim Wahab, Izzat Zin, Nadia Heng dan Radin ERA serta ratu gimnastik kebangsaan Izzah Amzan.


Sesi kelima yang juga merupakan kemuncak MILO Rentak Aktif telah berlangsung pada 10 Oktober lalu dengan penampilan khas Jaclyn Victor, selaku teraju utama kempen MILO Aktif Negaraku tahun ini. Beliau disertai rakan-rakan selebriti lain seperti Fahrin Ahmad, Aina Abdul dan Mei Yan.


Ya...MILO meneruskan kempen MILO Aktif Negaraku tahun ini dengan fokus untuk membangkitkan semangat aktif dalam diri rakyat Malaysia.


Terdapat pelbagai program sukan dan kecergasan di bawah gerakan MILO Aktif Negaraku sebelum ini seperti MILO Hidup Bola, MILO Champions Clinic dan MILO Activ Jam Senam Aerobik

Kempen ini kemudiannya diberikan suntikan nafas baru bersesuaian dengan norma baharu melalui pelancaran MILO Rentak Aktif. Ini bagi memastikan setiap program mempunyai kelainan serta menepati minat segenap lapisan masyarakat.


MILO percaya gaya hidup aktif bukan hanya untuk atlet, malah ia harus dimanfaatkan oleh setiap lapisan masyarakat tanpa batasan usia kerana gaya hidup aktif itu mudah, serta memberikan banyak kebaikannya bertepatan dengan mesej yang ingin disampaikan aktif milik semua. 


Justeru, ayuh bangkit bersama MILO dan semarakkan gaya hidup aktif. Kesemua lima sesi MILO Rentak Aktif boleh distrim semula menerusi saluran Youtube MILO Malaysia di www.youtube.com/user/MILOMalaysia/.

NEELOFA-GIUSEPPI ZANOTTI COLLABORATES 
Giuseppe Zanotti together with Neelofa, celebrated the official launch of the exclusive collection designed by the leading fashion Italian designer for the Malaysian fashion icon, at its boutique in Pavilion Kuala Lumpur. 

The highly anticipated private event, hosted by Neelofa and Sharan Valiram, Executive Director of Valiram, the brand’s retail partner in Malaysia, was attended by the media, celebrities and the brand’s many friends including Nora Danish, Elfira Loy, Jihan Muse and Jasmine Suraya Chin. 

An entrepreneur and a style and fashion icon, it is no surprise that the signature style from the Giuseppe Zanotti collection, The Liza, was picked by Neelofa to be reimagined together with Mr Zanotti. It is her favourite style from the brand. 
Two exclusive designs were launched. The “Dazzling Liza for Neelofa” has been reimagined in light blue suede encrusted with iridescent crystals that exude a touch of feminine confidence while the “Mirror Liza for Neelofa” is wrapped in a silver/rose gold metallic leather, striking a bold finish. 


This is the first time Mr Zanotti has collaborated exclusively with a South East Asian celebrity – creating a limited collection that reflects her style and taste. 
“We are honoured that Mr Zanotti has found it fit to work with a South East Asian personality. Neelofa embodies grit and grace and her sharp sense of entrepreneurship has put her in the Forbes 30 under 30 in Asia,” said Sharan Valiram, Executive Director of Valiram (right). With him is the Regional Commercial  Director, Anne Leung (left).


Mr Zanotti and Neelofa met in Paris in June to discuss the finer details of the creation. It was their second meet up after she made an appearance at Giuseppe Zanotti Fall Winter 2019 collection presentation in Milan in February. In September, the pair met again when Neelofa attended the Women’s Spring Summer 2020 collection presentation in Milan again. 

“I still can’t believe that my first encounter with Mr Zanotti has led to this moment. It still feels surreal to be given the opportunity for this collaboration – to have him redesign the iconic Liza pump with my style and personality incorporated into it. I am indeed on cloud nine now,” said Neelofa at the launch. 
These limited edition styles inspired by Neelofa’s unique style and forward- thinking fashion attitude, are now available exclusively at the Pavilion Kuala Lumpur boutique and retail for RM9,790 and RM3,890 respectively.

REZEKI PERKAHWINAN FATTZURA BERSAMA MAYBANK
Inilah yang dikatakan rezeki pengantin baharu!
Pasangan popular yang masih dalam mood 'berbulan madu' kata orang, Fattah Amin dan Fazura  memperoleh rezeki pertama secara bersama apabila keduanya mendapat perhatian syarikat kewangan terbesar, Maybank Banking Bhd (Maybank) untuk menjadi duta kad debit Maybank.
Pelantikan mereka dikatakan bertepatan dengan matlamat Maybank untuk menarik golongan muda atau Gen-Y memiliki kad debit khususnya yang berusia dalam lingkungan antara 21 tahun hingga 40 tahun.
Majlis pelantikan rasmi pasangan selebriti yang lebih dikenali dengan gabungan nama Fattzura ini berlangsung dalam suasana meriah di Menara Maybank Kuala Lumpur baru-baru ini.
Dalam sidang akhbar yang berlangsung, Ketua Bahagian Kad, Kumpulan Perkhidmatan Kewangan Komuniti (CFS) Kumpulan Maybank,  B Ravintharan berkata, mereka menjalin kerjasama selama setahun bersama pasangan ini dengan matlamat meningkatkan penggunaan transaksi tanpa tunai dalam kalangan orang muda yang semakin berkurangan sekarang.
“Pada 2017, kami menyaksikan peningkatan ketara dalam jumlah transaksi kad debit sebanyak 57 peratus dengan mencatatkan lebih 65 juta transaksi bernilai lebih RM17 bilion tahun ini berbanding tahun lalu iaitu RM11 bilion.
“Sebanyak 62 peratus bil debit kami datang daripada segmen profesional muda. Produk kad debit kami sudah berkembang menjadi lapan variasi produk yang berbeza dengan lebih sembilan juta pemegang kad debit yang aktif,” tambahnya. 
Sempena pelantikan tersebut, Maybank turut melancarkan kempen penggunaan kad debit selama tiga bulan sehingga 15 Mei depan menawarkan pakej percutian bersama Fattzura kepada lima pasangan bertuah.
Kempen berkenaan terbuka kepada pemegang kad debit Maybank di mana mereka perlu berbelanja menggunakan kad debit Maybank dengan minima RM250 dalam satu resit.
“Maybank yakin pasangan artis popular ini akan dapat membantu untuk lebih menggalakkan golongan Gen-Y menggunakan kad debit di negara ini,” jelas Ravintharan.



Sementara itu, Fazura berkata, perbincangan untuk mereka terbabit sebagai duta jenama rasmi kad debit Maybank berlaku penghujung tahun lalu.
“Kami bersetuju menerimanya apabila melihat kesan positif pada masyarakat. Ia memudahkan pengguna membuat pembelian tanpa pengeluaran wang tunai yang banyak dan lebih selamat.
“Saya menggalakkan golongan muda menggunakan kad debit Maybank memandangkan ia lebih mudah untuk membuat transaksi atau pembelian tanpa perlu membawa wang tunai banyak dalam bag,” katanya.
Menurut Fattah, walau pun ini merupakan pembabitan pertama mereka bersama dalam program rasmi pada tahun 2018 namun mereka tidak mahu pula terlalu kerap dilihat bersama  kerana bimbang peminat akan bosan.
“Setakat ini tiada tawaran lain termasuk untuk berlakon bersama," ujar Fattah.
“Mungkin kami akan selektif kerana Fazura ada projek dan produk sendiri, manakala saya juga ada perniagaan jenama sendiri yang perlu diutamakan,” katanya.
Turut hadir pada majlis ini ialah Ketua Perkhidmatan Kewangan Komuniti Maybank Malaysia Datuk Hamirullah Boorhan dan Ketua Kad Maybank Malaysia dan Singapura Karen Low

Pada tahun lalu. Maybank menyaksikan kadar kenaikan dalam urusan transaksi kad debit dengan catatan lebih kurang  65 juta transaksi bernilai RM1 bilion direkodkan.

Dan untuk tahun ini, Maybank mensasarkan  peningkatan transaksi menggunakan kad debit mampu mencapai sebanyak 100 juta bernilai RM17 bilion. iaitu 57%  kenaikan berbanding tahun terdahulunya.

Kak Fas percaya dengan adanya wajah jelita dan segak  Nur Fazura dan Fattah Amin sasaran kumpulan bank terbesar itu mampu dicapai.

Lagi pun kan mudah berbelanja dengan kad debit, tak perlu bawa duit banyak-banyak dalam bag ... tak perlu juga risau bag hilang atau diragut kerana yang ada cuma 'duit plastik' cuma jika berlaku malang tak berbau cepat-cepatlah bertindak membuat laporan dan sekat kad kredit itu dari diguna dengan melaporkannya segera kepada pihak bank!

Selamat kan! Jadi tukarkan gaya hidup perbelanjaan anda sekarang!

Yours truly for instance, am a simple person yet when it comes to certain items Kak Fas may slightly be off the course and choose exclusivity, quality yet branded just because I love the design.

True indeed... when shopping pricing comes second and design gets first hand. Once my eye caught an item then the question of price followed next.... be it affordable or expensive I will definitely buy it.


Watches as an example are products that we can;t be without as TIME is important for every move we make. As you all might be aware, fashion watches takes centre stage and eye catching but not forgetting luxury and quality watches are good to keep and worn during occasions.

But luxury watches built under the fine standards of Swiss watchmaking are often hefty on the wallet. 



With a mission to meet the demand for high-quality watches at an attractive price (from RM1590 up to RM1700), THE ELECTRICIANZ is born. Hailing from Switzerland, this new watch brand will hit the shores of Malaysia at Red Army Watches this December with the launch of four fearless timepieces: The Dresscode, The Mokas, The Ammeter, and The Blackout.

Upholding the tradition of its forefathers in Swiss watchmaking, THE ELECTRICIANZ brings an urban twist to the classic wristwatch. Inspired by electric art, its unapologetic design will shake up the conservative luxury landscape of watches—bringing a new spirit to the market of timepieces.


To create its offbeat and innovative design, THE ELECTRICIANZ drew from contemporary visual arts and underground cultures. Making its inner mechanism, powered by electricity, visible is a vibrant homage to the mechanical world hidden under digital surfaces. With this authentic design, THE ELECTRICIANZ moves away from the ever-growing technological add-ons to creatively showcase the transmission of energy in its simplest form.

“An Electricianz watch is a call to one’s inner childish curiosity about the physical world, from the time where quests consisted of uncovering “how things work”, explains Founder and CEO Laurent Rufenacht.

Indeed it was and Kak Fas am proud to be one of the invited media guest to witness its appearance at an exclusive launch of THE ELECTRICIANZ recently. Thank you Xavier Mah, the awesome and friendliest  PR for inviting.



And true enough with its quality yet affordable... the first sale was executed by one of our media friend,  Putri who bought it as a birthday present to her husband, Rosli..... lucky Rosli haha....but am unlucky cause had no luck in winning one of the two watches given through a lucky draw.


But experience one for the photo with the founder Laurent huhu...

Arnaud Duval, the brand’s creative director, adds: “The universe of THE ELECTRICIANZ is so rich, so deeply inspired that it was a thrilling experience to be designing for the brand. I really wanted to create an emotional link between the watch and its Owner.”

The movement is an in-house The Electricianz module designed on a Miyota 2033 base that runs on a 1X Flat cell 1225 CR battery. Each watch has a 45mm case with a hardened mineral K1 Glass that is water-resistant to 30 metres. Its pusher activates a 4X LED white light function to tell you the time in style at night.


The Dresscode possesses a traditional elegance—with its black calfskin leather strap and PVD gold pusher and crown—injected with THE ELECTRICIANZ’s urban and modern style. Being the first of all ELECTRICIANZ, it is the brand’s timeless must-have. The watch subtly intertwines the true values of Swiss luxury horlogerie and a fierce spirit of independence, matter-of-factness, and style.

The Mokaz features a brown calfskin leather nato strap that complements the dark grey mass-coloured nylon case and the pops of bronze in its PVD pusher, crown, and bezel. Its autumn colours elegantly enhance the volume of the watch, putting forth its depth and roundness.



The Ammeter is the bold sibling of the four with a fierce mix of red and yellow that is reminiscent of vivid murals on cities’ walls. Its black calfskin leather with red stitches holds a bold yellow mass-coloured nylon case. Blitz and fire merge into the Ammeter to create a true ELECTRICIANZ look.

The Blackout exudes a steampunk vibe with its shades of coal and brown brought out by the rustic brown display against the black mass-coloured nylon case with carbon compounds and patina-black calfskin leather. This mysterious piece is a true rebel exploring the late-night city streets.




All ELECTRICIANZ watches are available at all Red Army Watches - Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, 1 Utama Shopping Centre and Plaza Gurney as well as mo.men.tum in Sunway Velocity.

MARIGOLD PEEL FRESH CONTINUES CAMPAIGN PROMOTE HEALTHY LIFESTYLE

Its all about juices...

Yes.. do you know how many servings of fruits you need to consume daily?

Some said one, others said two or even three but dont get shock if there are those who do not care about eating fruits at all, let alone vegetables.


Yes children of this Y generation dont seem to like eating vegetables. But we, as parents what do we do? Just ignore the fact or find ways and means to figure how the best way to make them love eating fruit and vegetables.

The truth is... one must consume at least two intake of fruits daily alongside breakfast, lunches or dinner though three times is better.

But the thought of spending time in the kitchen peeling of and cutting fruits do take time and messy. And some do not have the time to cut and peel fruits as they have to be out early to cut off traffic jams so they could arrive in their office in time.

But whatever and however busy you are... taking care of your health is important. On that note, MARIGOLD PEEL FRESH Daily Fruit Goodness continues to kick off its campaign in addressing the country's alarming low intake of fruits and vegetables through its roadshow.

As Malaysia’s No.1 Pasteurised Fruit Juice drink choice, the nation’s drink of choice  recently held an engagement at MyTOWN Shopping Centre from 1 – 4 November 2017 which saw its brand ambassador, Lisa Surihani uniting parents via a panel discussion to address the decline in consumption of fruits and vegetables amongst Malaysians and a parent’s role in encouraging healthy lifestyle choices for their families.



“As a mother of two, my husband and I try to set a good example and are more conscious about what we consume by involving our children in the selection of fruits and vegetables at home. We make it a point for our household meals to be balanced and consist of leafy greens and nutritious fruits. Despite our busy schedules, we find it important to find time to sit down and enjoy a family meal together for better quality family time,” advocated Lisa Surihani on the importance of a balanced diet for a healthy lifestyle.

Sharing their views on modelling healthy habits for their families alongside Lisa Surihani, were Audrey Ooi (fourfeetnine) and Aliza Yasmin (Lizzie), who have made names for themselves through their parenting and family stories, especially within the motherhood community.

Both panellists agreed that the campaign provided an excellent platform for parents to come together and share their own experiences on trying to cultivate healthy lifestyle choices amongst their children. The panel discussion offered tried and tested methods used in making it a more fun experience for the younger generation to incorporate fruits and fruit juices as part of a balanced diet.



Commenting further on the roadshow, Michael Ong, Deputy General Manager, MARIGOLD PEEL FRESH said, “We understand the challenges faced by parents, especially in this competitive environment that we live in today where everyone is always on the go. It is especially difficult for parents to encourage their children to have the recommended two servings of fruits and vegetables daily when they have difficulties doing so themselves. The campaign is in support of the recommendation and MARIGOLD PEEL FRESH serves to complement the daily recommended servings for extra daily fruit goodness. It is convenient and it comes in its ready-to-drink packaging.”

The MARIGOLD PEEL FRESH Daily Fruit Goodness roadshow which kicked-off in One Utama, and continued its way to Mydin Meru Mall in Ipoh saw its roadshow visitors ‘edu-tained’ by the activities as well as have the opportunity for a meet-and-greet session with Lisa Surihani. The roadshow will carry on educating more Malaysians at its next roadshow in Angsana Johor Bahru Mall, Johor Bahru from 16 to 19 November 2017.

So guys and gals.. if you do not have the time to peel off those frutis or having problem feeding your kids with nutritious vegetables then do it with juices of which MARIGOLD PEEL FRESH offers.

You may choose from various flavours available....from apple,orange, guava, green fruit and vegetables etc...

Am sure your children would love the taste and at the same time they have am  equally balanced diet,.

MY SKETCHBOOK SHAWL BY EMMA MAEMBONG EKSKLUSIF

Dia dilahirkan berdarah seni. Jadi tidak hairanlah jika dilihat gaya hidup atau ‘lifestyle’ nya berlingkung pada dunia senia samada seni lakonan seni lukisan atau apa sahaja yang mewarisi bakat keluarga seninya.

Orang yang Kak Fas maksudkan itu tidak lain adalah pelakon manis Emma Maembong… bakat seni lukis yang diwarisi daripada ayahnya, seorang pelukis, Ismael Embong terus diasah walau pun sebuk dengan dunia lakonan.

Ko orang percaya tak jika Emma mempunyai lebih daripada 500 buah buku sketchbook yang memaparkan hasil seni lukisannya  sejak  masih kecil lagi.

Ya… jika dibiarkan sahaja lukisan itu sudah tentu bazir namanya kan? Jadi memang tepatlah penat lelahnya itu dihargai ramai khususnya peminatnya.

Itulah sebenarnya yang menjadi pencetus untuk pemilik nama sebenar, Fatimah Rohani Ismail, 25, ketika melahirkan pengeluaran tudung terbaharunya, My Sketchbook Shawl By Emma Maembong, yang  memperkenalkan empat koleksi baru iaitu Budaya, Hibisco, Bumi Kita dan Seashell.

Kak Fas antara pihak media dan blogger yang dijemput hadir pada majis pelancaran My Sketchbook Shawl By Emma Maembong baru-baru ini.


Daripada penglihatan Kak Fas… desain desain yang diterapkan ke tudung daripada lukisan dari kanvas ini sesuatu yang luar biasa.

Idea yang sebenarnya dicetus dan digerakkan oleh adiknya Yaya Maembong itu ternyata sesuatu yang bukan sahaja unik tetapi udah tentu berbaloi.

Ya la.. tak lah rugi kan segala masa dan tenaga Emma yang diletakkan pada karya lukisannya itu terbiar sahaja tetapi dapat dikongsikan kepada khalayak melalui tudungnya.

“Kebanyakan hasil lukisan saya di atas tudung mengangkat tema kebudayaan kerana saya mahu masyarakat kita tidak lupa asal usul  mereka walau pun  meniti arus pemodenan zaman ini,” ujar Emma sewaktumemberikan sepatah dua kata.

Nampak berseri dan penuh semangat Emma di pentas apatah lagi didampingi kekasih hati, pelakon Kamal Adli yang bertindak sebagai emcee pada majlis tersebut.

Macam pinang dibelah dua nampaknya mereka… memang sepadan malah ramai pula yang mengusik kedua mereka kala di pentas.

Berkongsi pengeluaran terbaharunya itu, Emma memberitahu, setiap  shawl yang dihasilkan dikeluarkan dalam corak dan jumlah terhad agar  ada nilai eksklusif.

Malah dengan harga mampu beli iaitu antara RM55 hingga RM99  ia hanya boleh dimiliki dan dibeli melalui stokis yang dilantik di seluruh Malaysia.

Memilih kualiti kain terbaik dalam menghasilkan tudung-tudung yang dikeluarkannya Emma turut berharap agar ia bukan sahaja dilihat sebagai sehelai tudung tetapi khalayak turut menghargai hasil seni lukisannya.




Jadi peminat-peminat Emma … cepat dapatkan tudung eksklusif ini sebelum kehabisan dan putih mata sebab setiap pengeluaran coraknya berlainan malah mungkin tidak akan diulang.

SOL REPUBLIC INTRODUCES TWO NEW WIRELESS EARPHONES

Are u into music? If that is your lifestyle then it would not be wrong to say you that music and you are inseparable right? 

And if you are a teenager or young of age, Kak Fas am sure your best companion would be the earphones as much as you can't leave home without your cellphone.. your earphones is another item you wouldnt want to miss.

With a line up of earphones in your collection maybe this latest by SOL REPUBLIC would be ideal to add in to the existing stock.




Best part of it, this latest earphones by SOL REPUBLIC which was launched recently are for Malaysians who want crisp, smooth sound on the go. You may choose from any of the two new lifestyle-centric wireless earphones available now.

Witnessing the introduction of those two products recently, Kak Fas was amazed by its stylish design.



The first product to reach Malaysian shores is the Amps Air™ Earphones, a truly wireless earbud that offers unparalleled Bluetooth® wireless technology, comfort, sound, and style.


Amps Air is small and ultra-light but can still deliver up to three hours of music playtime. They come with a sleek, portable charging case, which recharges Amps Air up to 15 times. With a built in 2200mAh battery and USB port, it doubles as a portable charger for your phone, a useful tool many seem to need these days.





Amps Air is contoured to fit the ear and is wrapped in a silicone sleeve with futuristically designed tapered grooves that not only give Amps Air a striking look, but also grips the ear like treads on a tire for a comfortable yet secure fit. The grooves also allow airflow to reduce sweat build up. The result is an earphone that is secure enough for workouts yet comfortable enough to wear all day without the wiring or pain associated with traditionally bulkier earphones.


“Most wireless earphones try to pack a lot of features in a small space and unfortunately often end up sacrificing sound quality and Bluetooth reliability. We engineered an advanced antenna design for the most reliable Bluetooth wireless connection possible and delivered our SOL REPUBLIC signature sound with big deep bass and amazing clarity,” said Eddy Hong, General Manager of Dynamic Fox Pte Ltd, the sole distributor of SOL REPUBLIC in Malaysia and Singapore.


For quick use, the earphones automatically turn on when you take them out from the case and turn off and recharge when you place them back in. Users can also choose to only connect one earbud for mono sound, a great option for people, like commuters, who want to hear their surroundings as well as their music at the same time.


Users can control their music and their calls, without rummaging around for their phone. From picking up, declining, or taking a second call, to activating Siri® voice recognition software or Google Voice Search™ service, all of these can be done with a touch of the multi-function button.Amps Air is priced at RM 900.00 and comes in Rose Gold, Rich Teal and Deep Blue.




The second new product is Relays Sport Wireless, a wireless earphone targeting active consumers. Crowdsourced and engineered to address the consumers’ biggest complaints about sports earphones, the earphones promise up to eight hours of play time, a full range high fidelity sound, quick charge technology, microphone, music controls, sweat resistance, and a special outdoor sound mode. 


The gear has also been designed to worn comfortably for hours with secure fit thanks its most important feature, its award-winning FreeFlex™ secure fit with ultralight ear bud design that adapts to any ear size without the need for complicated parts or hooks which wrap around your sensitive ear.


This results in an ear bud that stays inside and remains comfortable enough to use all day even when you’re not working out.


“It took more than two years of research, development and feedback since its initial launch on Indiegogo and we believe the Relays Sport Wireless is the perfect wireless earphone for Malaysians with active lifestyles; for both indoor and outdoor workouts,” said Hong.




Hong added that SOL REPUBLIC engineers strategically placed all the electronic components in ergonomic, water resistant pods that fit naturally on the neck and offers better reliability, a larger battery and improved sound and Bluetooth connectivity. It also offers quick charging capabilities with a ten minutes charge providing an hour of playtime.

Relays Sports Wireless features SOL REPUBLIC’s signature deep bass and crisp sound that brings out all the emotion in your music. It is currently priced at RM 400.00 and comes in Grey, Mint, and Lime.


“Truly wireless earphones are essential wearables, meaning they must look good when you wear them, feel comfortable enough to wear all day, is sweat resistant for workouts, and in the case of earphones, sound amazing and have a reliable Bluetooth connection. We feel both products have accomplished all of that,” Hong said.


Malaysians can purchase both products at selected RadioShack outlets nationwide or can be purchased online on Lazada.

UP CLOSE & PERSONAL WITH 'HEARTS ON FIRE' DESIGNER, ILARIA

It had been few years since Kak Fas  was introduced to the amazing collections of  'Hearts On Fire', that is every time attending Habib Diamond Fest campaign.



And again  this year is another year when HABIB showcased its latest collections but this time around it is the first time Kak Fas was able to get close and personal with its Director of Design, Italian born Ilaria Lanzoni who flew in from the Big Apple City - New York.

When spoke to her and questioned on where she gets her inspiration in designing beautiful collections?

Here is what she said: " Its from my personal experiences around the world. Whenever i looked at nature, architecture of cities, fashion trends and the surroundings.... all of these elements ignite me to create Hearts on Fire design," said Ilaria.who had more than 20 years experience of design expertise.



Some of her designs  that are adorned  and draws inspiration to all women are pieces such as the Copley Collection, Illa Collections, Aerial Collections, Lorelei Collection and Triplicity Collections... all of which used the World's Most Perfectly Cut Diamond.




The Copley Collection is full of bold, metal intensive designs insprired by the historic architecture of Boston. The Illa Collection features beautiful stars and constellation themes. The Aerial Collection draws inspiration from the delicate shapes of nature. The Lorelei Collection is a soft and feminine reflection of lace and other traditional designs elements. And the Triplicity Collection is an edgy, yet timeless approach to fashion forward diamond jewelry designs based on New York City’s architecture.



To her achievement Ilaria was honoured with a prestigious award for Best Design in Haute Couture at the 2015 Couture Show in Las Vegas for her design of the  Serafina necklace.

Wow! that is true to what she mentioned as she travels the world... every creation is inspired to what she experience and see.... awesome... wished had that creativity as hers but well am not good in drawing or creative enough to win that lovely Lorelei Bow Bracelet that was offered as winner for the best jewellery designed which  happened during the exclusive mini preview of 'Hearts on Fire' at Habib Diamond Fest 2017 held at Suria KLCC recently.




The ignite inspiration event saw few selected designers from different fields of design to 
compete in a jewellery design contest of 20 minutes. But then my blogger friend, Miera Nadhirah  who as she said in her blog "Being thick faced/shameless at times, I asked if I could join, since I saw another blogger friend beginning to sketch, and I did not actually see who the people around me- they are actually very renowned local Malaysian fashion designers..… hah.. me.. a nobody trying to design a jewelry, David against Goliath… and was given a pencil and an art paper.. So I got down to sketching ....."


And guess what .... Miera won that Lorelei Bow Bracelet which was valued at about RM3,500...she beats all other professional designers.... well as the Malay says it... "rezeki Miera"...

Anyway earlier the event saw Ilaria briefing on the collectons - Hearts On Fire that was worn by 2 beautiful models and why it was branded as 'World's Most Perfectly Cut Diamond'.

As you may know, 'Hearts on Fire' diamond as mentioned in their official site...."boast a perfect ring of eight hearts on the bottom and a perfectly formed, symmetrical Fireburst® on the top that will outshine any other diamond. As a result, a Hearts On Fire diamond displays a perfection you can actually see. A perfection that still stands alone today.


"As light enters the diamond, it descends downward into the pavillion. A standard diamond with an inferior cut leaks light from the bottom and sides. Too deep or too shallow a cut, and the light that gives a diamond its brilliance is lost. However, because of its perfectly symmetrical cut and increased surface area, a Hearts On Fire diamond captures that light and reflects it from the top, creating maximum brilliance and fire."

Well.... Kak Fas saw some selected media or maybe bloggers were given to look into a tiny diamond that was given to them as a gift,  with a microscope.to see that 'fireburst' but ...sad to say didn't get one... maybe not qualified I guess....just a small fry blogger... huhu...





'Hearts On Fire' is showcased at more than 600 leading retailers in the US and in over 22 countries and in Malaysia you can only get it at all HABIB boutique through out the nation,
-  Ampang Point, Suria KLCC, The Curve, Midvalley Megamall, Semua House, Bangsar Village 2, Gurney Plaza Penang, Suria Sabah and The Spring, Kuching, Sarawak.

More information  on theHearts on Fire  collections do visit its website at http://www.habibjewels.com/hof/

Maybe one of the collections will 'ignite something' in you....

The mall is connected to the JW Marriott Kuala Lumpur by a "Time Tunnel".[2]The link bridge also connects to the Ritz-Carlton, Kuala Lumpur.

Kak Fas  was one of the invited members of the media who got to attend the spectacular and glamorous launch in Bukit Bintang’s ultimate luxury fashion and lifestyle retail destination, the Starhill Gallery…
And this year for the seventh time, Starhill Gallery Fashion Week took to stage their exclusive seven designer labels namely Valentino, iKartini, Keno, McQ Alexander McQueen, M Missoni, Debenhams and Mita Tam Style Studio.

For four consecutive days beginning 12 April until 15th April 2017, those leading names in the International and Malaysian  fashion industries will feature their Spring-Summer Collections 2017 amidst an abundance of glitz and glamour especially during the opening party.


The runway show kicks off with Kenzo’s menswear and womenswear portraying garments characterizing expression of freedom through its collections of ponchos, parkas, military jackets, blouses and dresses. Kenzo’s design  were deconstructed into feather-light and voluminous silhouettes and  technical taffetas with metal snaps and drawstrings.. giving it an  industrial feel…

 
KENZO...
Follow suit is another designer’s collection by M.Missoni themed “Glitter Glam”, taking the upbeat and feminine women as its inspiration to create designs of vivid colours and bold lines along graphism, modern art to the hippie folk movement of free and youthful spirit.


McQ Alexander McQueen on the other hand showcased  a 90s intepretation of the 70s in its Spring/Summer collection with musing pop culture’s infamous icons of  David Bowie, Iggy Pop and Lydia Lunch. McQ  translated that era and muses into garments of easy silhouettes, contrasting fabrics and jarring provocation colours.



The runway continued non stop with the Italian fashion mammoth, Valentino. For its Spring/Summer Collections this year, Valentino’s design was inspired by the renaissance painting of Hieronymus Bosch and British designer Zandra Rhodes’s lively prints.



Their creation evokes historic Venetian textiles while quirky prints were designed on ethereal soft dresses, shirts, and smart trenches for modern daywear emphasising on appliques and movement of fabrics for a sense of sophistication and grace to the wearer.

This fast paced fashion show continued with four colections from Malaysian designer, Kartini Illias who specialized on  hand drawn batik pieces to traditional and contemporary design captivating Malaysia culture in her creation named 'ikartini:



As she was seated beside me, Kartini explained that her Spring-Summer Collections  themed ‘Break Free’ highlighted batik as an art of creating light patterns as well as colourful floral dresses for both casual and formal occasion. I love the long white caftan  like design which  is valued about RM3k.  Kartini had all her collections tailored within a period of two weeks. Wow! that was fast and creative.


The evening continued with another eye catching designers label from Mita Tam Style Studio with gowns suited for weddings or formal wear. Every eye’s were enchanted by the bright colours and awesome design, a match for princesses.


From Malaysia soil comes the British brand, Debenhams with their Spring Summer 2017 collections of simple yet beautiful pieces. 


And the finale for the evening ended with 20 gorgeous designs created by the award winning fashion designer, Alvin Fernandez.

You can choose to purchase the latest travel retail assortment from the brands which include necklaces, pendants, charms, bracelets, rings, bangles, earrings, and watches priced from RM200 above.

SINGER Ezlynn and Amanda (below)  were also invited.

Kak Fas had the opportunity to witness all the four products showcased at Love Lola during the ribbon cutting ceremony  launch by Suraj Menon, Managing Director of J&S Group with Tan Sri Ravindran Menon, Executive Director of Subang SkyPark and  Carey Ng, Architect and Ms Universe Malaysia 2013.

While  Kak Fas went ‘window shopping’ , others queued to get a piece of their creative illustrations of themselves done by artist and  illustrator du jour @misseleen before being treated to a fashion showcase featuring the latest collections from all the brands.

Sad to say, due to unforseen circumstances, Kak Fas was not able to stay longer for the fashion show nor the lucky draw sessison which Kak Fas was informed later by a blogger friend, that Kak Fas name was called as one of the the three lucky winners to receive a gift from Toscow. 

OMG! If only Kak Fas had the chance to stay longer but sad to say… the gift was not meant to be mine. God has meant it to be for someone else… Guess, let bygones be bygones ya…. 

Anyway,  being  located at the busiest airport due to its strategic location, this latest addition to Skypark Terminal’s retail section will allow travellers, and communities that live around the airport to finally be able to enjoy shopping for branded and chic jewelleries without having to travel too far.

So if you are staying nearby and am looking for a chic, trendy and beautiful gift, Love Lola, would be the ideal destination. Don’t look further.



Head on to SkyPark Terminal @ Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport  which is a mere 30 minutes from Kuala Lumpur city center, and accessible via most major highways and view the product brands for yourself.

Travellers looking to head to Malaysia’s popular tourist destinations such as Penang, Langkawi, Johor Bahru, Alor Setar, Kota Bahru, Kuala Terengganu, Kerteh, or international locations such as Singapore, will find SkyPark Terminal @ Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport the more convenient option by far.

'RISE TO OPULENCE', VIEW THE LARGEST PHOENIX REPLICA @ PAVILION KL 

As Chinese New Year draws near.... Kak Fas too had been very busy these few weeks going in and out of KL's popular and known shopping malls. But no... dont get me wrong... its not a shopping spree for me  mind you.... just 'window' shopping haha...

In fact, within a period of one week, Kak Fas had entered three shopping malls - all of which were invitation to witness each mall's Chinese New Year decorations. From Avenue K to Sungei Wang Plaza and recently to the most prestigious Pavilion KL, Kak Fas was amazed at all of the decorations created.

Readers may have read  in this blog what had been posted earlier on the nostalgic chinatown concept by Avenue K (story below) while Sungei Wang Plaza calls in all their shoppers to feel the abundance and prosperity bestowed on them.

And interestingly too, the last shopping mall which is the Pavilion KL had something more great to offer being Malaysia's premier shopping destination besides Suria KLCC.


What amazed yours truly most was the Malaysia's Largest Phoenix Replica at the mall's iconic Centre Court, hanging right up to the ceiling, much to the themed, "The Rise to Opulence",  a breathtakingly abundant celebration of record-setting proportions in conjunction with the Lunar Year of the Rooster.

Promoting the notion that one’s hard work, passion and blessings will give rise to receiving opulence, Pavilion KL’s grand decorations for the  Chinese New Year portray the humble Rooster transforming into a Majestic Phoenix, rising high into the sky, full of pride and beauty. 

Take a walk under the Majestic Phoenix at the Centre Court and be bestowed with opulence and good fortune. That was the message that the Pavilion management wants to throw to all shoppers thats looking to attract good fortune this year.


The much-awaited celebration was attended by Guest of Honour, YB Datuk Seri Utama Tengku Adnan bin Tengku Mansor, Minister of Federal Territories, Puan Sri Cindy Lim, Executive Chairman of Kuala Lumpur Pavilion Sdn Bhd, Datuk Lee Tuck Fook, Executive Director of Pavilion REIT and Dato’ Joyce Yap, CEO of Retail, Pavilion KL.

8 Prosperity Lions and Lucky Drums provided a thundering welcome to the guests, signifying an auspicious start to the festival.  It was indeed a welcoming sight.

Called upon to give her warm speech, Dato Joyce Yap shared:

“Each year, Pavilion KL leads the way in presenting grand decorations, exciting promotions and performances for the Lunar New Year. This Year of the Rooster, we continue to open our doors and welcome everyone, regardless of race or religion to enjoy the festivity, as the spirit of unity and racial harmony is very unique to Malaysia. While we indulge in the celebration, let’s not forget about the less fortunate. We encourage all shoppers to join in our CSR initiative this Lunar New Year to give back to our community. Gong Xi Fa Cai!”.

And after a short speech by Datuk Seri Utama Tengku Adnan, ,the launch was officiated with a strike on the auspicious ‘gong’ by the Minister and Puan Sri Cindy Lim to awaken the Golden Rainbow Rooster, as a symbolic gesture to usher in the Year of the Rooster. Shoppers are invited to stroke the Golden Rainbow Rooster to be blessed with prosperity and happiness this Lunar New Year.



As with all signature festivals, Pavilion KL created 'history' once again in the Malaysia Book of Records by presenting the ‘Largest Phoenix Replica’ in Malaysia, measuring 40 feet in length, 52 feet in width and 12 feet in height. Founder of the Malaysia Book of Records, Tan Sri Datuk Danny Ooi was present to award the honourary certificate to Puan Sri Cindy Lim. 


Guests were then treated to a powerful drum performance by award-winning local percussion group ‘Orang Orang’ Drum Theatre of which the Minister himself was invited to hit the drum.

And to the delight of the crowd, the robust beating of the drums awakened  and 'Enters the Dragon',  an 88 foot long magnificent Dragon  descending  from the mall’s Spanish Steps towards the centre stage.



Pavilion KL’s “The Rise to Opulence” launch concluded with a thrilling acrobatic lion dance performance by World Champion Lion Dance Troupe Kun Seng Keng who electrified the crowd with an energetic rendition of their award winning act at the mall’s Bukit Bintang Entrance.


Alls well ends well. 

Guests were then given a pink bag sponsored by Crabtree & Evelyn containing three Pomegranate product range of moisturising hand therapy, body lotion and bath/shower gel. Emmm....the smell  so 'harum' even when its stilL packed.


At the forefront of practising benevolent acts of giving and supporting the welfare of the community, Pavilion KL’s on-going “Charity at Heart” initiative (which has raised over RM2.6 million to date for charity), has once again dedicated a Lunar New Year CSR initiative to benefit Old Folks Homes and the needy organizations nationwide. 


A Rooster Gallery is displayed at the Centre Court, where a myriad of Rooster merchandise is exhibited, exclusively sourced by Pavilion KL from around the world. 

Specially selected to benefit charity, the ‘Dance of the Prosperity Rooster’ decorative plate is  specially done for shoppers at a token sum of RM1,288, with proceeds going to old folks’ homes and needy organizations nationwide. 

With only 650 pieces created especially for Pavilion KL, the limited-edition heritage glassware from Turkey features an intricately painted design of a Rooster, handmade by master craftsmen. It is available exclusively at the Pavilion KL Centre Court in pearl, gold or silver finishes. Shoppers who are interested to do their part for charity can proceed to the Porte Cochere Concierge at Level 2 or call 03- 2188 8833 for more information.


Shoppers can bring home the Prosperity Ang Pow with RM300 spent in a single receipt at specialty stores from now to 12 February 2017. UnionPay cardmembers enjoy more privileges this Lunar New Year! Redeem a TWG Tea gift with two cumulative receipts of RM800 spent with UnionPay Card (card no. starting ‘62’) from now to 12 February 2017.




Busk in the delightful scent of spring flowers when you take a stroll at the Main Entrance, level 3, courtesy of festival partner, Sunsilk. Take a creative picture with the Sunsilk 3D bottle at the Main Entrance, upload it to Instagram or Facebook and stand a chance to win prizes. 

 

Well... guess you woudn't feel like Kak Fas did if you dont made an attempt to shop and visit for yourself right?

KL SOGO 3RD FLOOR  FASHION ARENA GOES URBAN

Everytime KL Sogo puts up and event and as soon as Kak Fas got an invite from the ever friendly and cheerful Ikhsan Ismail…. Kak Fas will surely rsvp early.

IKHSAN and colleague, Prema.

More so, being one of the largest single department store that’s located within the heart of KL’s best known shopping street – Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman – KL Sogo is Kak Fas’s most favourite shopping one-stop paradise.

Not only customers are able to find a complete selection of affordable products ranging from apparel, home furnishings to daily consumer items…. but you name it KL Sogo has it.


This 10 storey shopping mall  offers exsclusive fashion labels to quality branded products – womenswear, menswear, cosmetics & fragrances, childrenswear, fine bone China and crystals or ‘take a break’ at their Saji Food Court on the 6th Floor.

Whatever is your intention KL Sogo provides it.And recently, Kak Fas was marvelled to see the newly renovated 3rd Floor Fashion Arena which has been transformed fresh, urban, hip and cool. Designed for the young at heart but definitely its an eye catching for the old of age too haha….the floor which took about two months of renovation now spots a contemporary industrial chic concept, showcasing both local and international brands, segmented into four categories – Athleisure, Street Smart, Style Signature and Frills & Thrills catered to the hipsters and YUCCIES (young urban creatives).  

Now let’s look closely… here you will find the ‘Street Smart’ concept area. Along the streetwear section, customers who chose to seek for a rugged chic denim wear and swag street fashion can head over to the denim bar section.

Here, you have a choice of home-grown streetwear labels such as Pestle Mortar, IDOTshirt, Stoned & Co., and Fabspy, the multi-brand store that carries cool, independent labels.



Having touble with your choice? Do not fret… why not grab something from your favourite brands like Levi’s, Guess, Lee and Ed Hardy from the denim bar to keep your blues away. 



For the ones who have embraced Athleisure as a lifestyle, the floor features active wear and sports brands like Under Armour, Private Structure, Ogival, Arena, Fila, Adidas, Nike, Puma and Converse.

If you often go crazy over tech accessories like Kak Fas hihi…..and quirky knick-knacks, you will be pleased to know that one can always expect good things from the Lightbulb and Kaleidoscope counters. 



That’s not all,  ladies who  fancy watches, bags and shoes will be thrilled with the new accessories section, which are  called  ‘Frills & Thrills’! 

The new and extensive watch section features watches for all occasions i.e. digital, analogue, sports, suit-worthy timepieces, etc. 

There’s a saying that goes “Good shoes take you to good places”, if you have yet to find your perfect pair that will take you places, then it’s time to drop by for a visit. 


With brands like Toms, New Balance, Dr. Martens, Palladium, Birkenstock, Butterfly Twists, Havaianas and Sanuk, the hardest decision you will be making when you visit the new floor is deciding on how many pairs of shoes you will be taking home with you. 

This is actually Kak Fas’s must stop area as shoes is one of my favourite collections. Though excited with the selection of ‘high heels’ but always ended up with a low one…. Well low ones makes you walk faster and comfortable for shopping right? 



As part of the department store’s effort to recognise and promote local fashion talents, the floor also features ethnic-inspired fashion collection by Tengku Kery, and shoes and bags by Christy Ng.

Both designers are well-known for their ‘Signature Style’, Tengku Kery - A Tribute to Borneo songket kurta collection, while Christy Ng - shoe customisation service.   
  
And for the first time, KL SOGO is introducing international brands like Kenneth Cole, Lacoste and Private Stitch to cater to shoppers who are seeking something more fashionable, high-street and chic. 



During the media preview of the arena recently, KL Sogo proudly welcomed 60 Miss Tourism International 2016 delegates, who were in Malaysia to promote global tourism.

Out of the 60 beautiful ‘beauty queens’ participants …  54 of the Miss Tourism International delegates presented an exclusive fashion show featuring the brands available at Fashion Arena.

But here’s a ‘catch’ for all faithful KL Sogo members and buyers. 
In celebration of the floor’s new look, KL SOGO is running the ‘Cun Tak? Instagram Contest from 2 December 2016 until 1 March 2017. 

To participate, one simply needs to upload an OOTD to Instagram according to the given monthly theme. Monthly prizes consists of First Prize - iPhone 7 32GB and 3 Consolation Prize – RM500 Shopping Vouchers. 


That’s an awesome New Year Gift right? So if you want to be lucky… take a ‘selfie’ and who knows you might own a new iPhone 7 next year…. KL Sogo opens daily from 10 am to 9.30 pm. 
Good luck alls… Merry Xmas and  Happy New Year to all!

SEPANJANG KENANGAN HABIB 30 TAHUN

Di sini bermulanya 30 tahun lalu…. Eh teringat pula bait-bait lagu ‘Mulanya Di Sini’ nyanyian Kumpulan Freedom.

Anyway apa yang Kak Fas ingin bicarakan adalah perihal kunjungan Kak Fas ke butik pameran barang kemas HABIB JEWELS di Semua House, kawasan Masjid India baru-baru ini.

Sebenarnya, Kak Fas hampir terlupa mengenai majlis meraikan ulang tahun HABIB yang ke 30 berlangsung pada 27 November 2017, bersamaan Hari Ahad. Maklumlah selalunya Hari Ahad jarang ada acara itu yang terlepas pandang tetapi nasib baik rakan blogger, Misz Ella ingatkan. Kak Fas dah lama bersetuju mahu meraikan hari istemewa HABIB itu bersama Ella. Thanks Ella for reminding….



Dan sejujurnya, sebaik melangkah masuk ke Kompleks Semua House di mana terletaknya showroom HABIB (dulu Habib Jewels), ingatan Kak Fas mengimbau kembali pada pertemuan pertama Kak Fas bersama CEOnya, Datuk Seri Meer Sadik Habib, yang dulu hanya dikenali sebagai Meer sahaja di kalanan teman-teman rapat.

Itu sebab Kak Fas mulakan penulisan Kak Fas tadi dengan ayat ‘di sini bermulanya…”
Yes you are right… di sinilah pertemuan pertama Kak Fas dengan Meer di mana sewaktu itu Kak Fas membuat temu janji untuk menulis personaliti Meer dalam Majalah WANITA, keluaran Utusan Melayu.

Sebelum bertemua Meer pun, Kak Fas dah banyak kali berurusan dengan pihak Habib untuk menulis mengenai barang kemasnya dan Kak Fas juga berterima kasih kerana Habib juga waktu itu sering bekerjasama memberikan hadiah untuk pembaca majalah WANITA dalam ruangan yang Kak Fas kendalikan iaitu ‘Wanita & Perhiasan’


Perhiasan barang kemas HABIB memang cantik, unik dan terserlah… Kak Fas pun terpukau sehingga ‘terpaksa’ membeli gelang tangan emas  yang off course tentulah Kak Fas mendapat diskaun menarik dari tuanpunya diri…Ribuan-ribuan ringgit juga lah terbang huhu….

Dan sempena sambutan ulang tahun ke 30 yang baharu lalu, Kak Fas pun turut bersama rasa gembira meraikannya waima kenangan lampau yang begitu dekat dengan Habib. 

Pendekata, dari zaman bujang hingga kepada hari perkahwinan Meer dengan isterinya kini, Datin Seri Zarida, Kak Fas menulis mengenai mereka.



Jadi Kak Fas dah al maklum dengan personaliti dan latar belakang Meer sebelum dan selepas beliau berkahwin dengan Zarida… malah hiasan rumahnya di kawasan Damansara pun Kak Fas keluarkan dalam majalah WANITA.

Semasa ucapan Meer yang secara jujur mengatakan beliau seorang yang agak ‘kedekut’ dulu (Kak Fas tak ingatkan bahasa Cina yang  digunakan), Kak Fas hanya mampu tersenyum

Ada sedikit kebenarannya…. kerana Kak Fas pernah mencadangkan Habib Jewels berkembang melalui beberapa promosi melibatkan artis dan sebagainya. Tetapi ketika itu, Meer seperti kurang setuju sebab masalah ‘kedekut’ tadilah.. hihi … jangan marah Meer.

Tetapi ternyata keadaan dan zaman teknologi memaksanya mengubah strategi…dan apa yang pernah Kak Fas cadangkan dahulu menjadi realiti… 



BERSAMA Datin Seri Zarida dan rakan Misz Ella.

Kini HABIB bukan sahaja dikenali pelusok tanah air malah mula mendapat perhatian dunia apatah lagi telah berkolabrasi dengan jenama berlian  antarabangsa seperti ‘Hearts on Fire’ dari Amerika Syarikat begitu juga PANDORA dari Denmark mahu pun terbaharu ICE WATCH, jenama jam tangan trendy dan mewah dari Belgium.

“Harapan saya mahu HABIB menjadi jenama terkenal di seluruh dunia,” ujar Datuk Seri Meer Habib penuh yakin ketika mengembalikan kisah sejarah penubuhan Habib yang beribu pejabat di Pulau Pinang dalam tahun 1958  hingga membawa ke  Kuala Lumpur pada tahun 1986.

Dari cawangan pertama di Semua House dengan kakitangan seramai lapan orang sahaja, HABIB kini boleh tersenyum lebar dengan 31 cawangan di seluruh Negara.



Para tamu yang hadir turut dipertontonkan melalui video beberapa kejayaan yang membanggakan HABIB antaranya sudah tentulah menjadi syarikat barang kemas pertama berdaftar di bawah bursa tempatan pada tahun 1998 malah merupakan ‘the Best Companies to Work for in Asia oleh HR Asia’ serta dinobatkan sebagai salah satu dari 5 jenama terbaik dalam kategori perniagaan (barang kemas) di Campaign Asia Pacific dan TNS' Asia's Top 1,000 Brands dari 2010 hingga 2012.

Penerima Brand Laureate Award ini turut mendapat anugerah Reader’s Digest Trusted Brands Awards, Fair Price Award dan Malaysian Retail Association Award.

Tidah terhenti di situ sahaja, , HABIB juga merupakan sebuah syarikat barang kemas pertama yang mcngeluarkan pengiklanan pada bas, menjadi syarikat pertama menjalan aktiviti jualan lelongan, dan juga syarikat barang kemas pertama yang muncul di radio bagi sesi temubual terbuka dan menjawab soalan para pendengar.



Dan nampak gayanya HABIB sudah pun melangkah ke bidang perhotelan dengan pembukaan  Hotel HABIB di Kota Bahru, Kelantan.

Hebat tak perjalanan 30 tahun HABIB… mana Meer tak tersenyum riang sepanjang acara meraikan ulang tahun berlangsung.. tambah-tambah lagi apabila mendapat sokongan tidak berbelah bahagi daripada isteri tercinta, Zarida yang juga dikenali di Semua House.

“Isteri saya sekarang ini dahulu adalah pelanggan saya… saya nampak dia dan terus tergerak hati untuk berkenalan,” Meer mendedahkan jodoh pertemuannya sambil menjeling manja ke arah isteri tersayang yang katanya kelihatan semakin cantik dan anggun kini daripada dahulu huhu….

Kan wajah kita ni semakin tua semakin cantik kan?  Meer pun nampak lebih segak sekarang daripada rupanya ketika bujang dulu cuma dah ketiadaan rambut je lah haha….tetapi tetap ‘ancem’ dulu dan sekarang… macam Shah Rukh Khan pulak huhuhu….

Majlis pada petang tu turut diserikan dengan pertunjukan fesyen barang kemas HABIB termasuk koleksi ‘House of Fire’ dan Oro Italia 916.




Tahniah dan Selamat Ulang tahun ke  30 HABIB ##habib30tahunKL.

GO JAPANESE WITH ISETAN JAPAN STORE LOT 10

Formally, it was known as ISETAN Lot 10 Store, but now if you pass Bukit Bintang area, opposite the ever popular Sungei Wang Shopping Centre, to the right hand side of the one way parallel two sided road, stands  ISETAN  The Japan Store.

The name Japan Store speaks for itself. No doubt about it, this newly opened departmental store offers Japanese specialty goods and aesthetical products from more than 200 Japanese brands.

A collaboration between Cool Japan Fund and Isetan Mitsukoshi Holdings Ltd, what’s best about it is it’s  the second Japan Store in the world, just after 27 days of opening its first similar store  in Paris, France. And now, Malaysia became the second country. 

Kak Fas was glad to be one of the many guest alongside media members and bloggers to view the refurbished  Lot 10 Shopping Mall with a total floor area of about 11,000 sq meter,comprising of 6 floors that are exsclusively design to evoke a circuit-style Japanese atmosphere of relaxation and with a theme of its own offering the following:

LGF: The Market     – experience the seasonal flavours of ISETAN’s famed food market
GF: The Museum    – a mix of Japan’s rich fashion, art and culture
1F: The Studio         – experience the fashion live
2F: The Room          – products made with Japanese materials and technology to enhance daily life          
3F: The Cube            – experience the inspiring culture of bookstore, photo lounge, motion graphics etc
4F: The Table            – premium dining outlet which will open in 2017



Looking around at each floor, the ambience was pleasant and displayed awesome. And being a women, off course Kak Fas’s first viewing stop that takes slightly longer is the 1st Floor – The Studio -   that carries many Japanese cosmetic brands such as my favourite – SKII, Shiseido, THREE, Albion  and many more beauty products.



Besides that, hair salon 76Style also collaborate with uka to offer a beauty, hair and nail salon plus a Ukafe that emphasis on clean-eating.



On the opening of this Japan store, Isetan Mitsukoshi Overseas Merchandising (Policy) Division General Manager Hajime Nakagawa said the company was optimistic the store would do well in Malaysia considering the country's growing economy and population.


"Besides local people, we are also targeting tourists visiting the country," he said  at the store launch recently.

Nakagawa said the company aimed to deliver the 'real Japan' high-end items to its customers in Malaysia,  given the growing interest in Japanese culture in this part of the world.



Indeed, the  Isetan Japan Store offer high-quality products representing Japan’s recent fashions, the latest lifestyle trends and top-quality food.

Isetan Mitsukoshi is planning to strengthen its overseas operations by opening new stores and renovating existing ones. It will invest up to ¥20 billion over three years through fiscal 2018 and aims to increase its overseas operating income by ¥2 billion in fiscal 2018 compared with that of fiscal 2015.

The company sees the opening of the new store as a critical pillar for the future. It will examine whether it will be useful to establish similar facilities in other Asian countries.
Meanwhile, Hiroshi Onishi, president and CEO of Isetan Mitsukoshi Holdings, says customers visiting the new Kuala Lumpur establishment will see the top-quality Japanese items.

“We’re ready to show the world the exceptional craftsmanship Japan is proud to offer. This undertaking represents our first step in introducing Japan’s unique regional and national products, experiences and services to the world,”  Onishi added.




Without further describing the concept of the store in words, Kak Fas suggest everyone should at least pay a visit to the Isetan Japan Store and find the uniqueness and exsclusivity of the products available.



Especially if you are the high end customer that loves quality Japanese products, then this would be the first departmental store you should head on to. The address is Lot 10, 50 Jalan Bukit Bintang, KL.

SENDS: YOUR SOLUTION TO DELIVERY

It was an event of ‘fast and famous’ not ‘fast & furious’ ya u alls….


Why do Kak Fas say that… it is because at the event of the launch of SENDS Malaysia, the delivery boy that sends the parcel/document on stage with a motocycle  was not only fast but he’s famous too … yes who wouldn’t know JORGE LORENZO, the 3 times MotoGP World Champion, making an appearance as their business partner and Global Brand Ambassador of SEND. 
But to some, you may ask what is SEND?



Okey, before Kak Fas goes further to explain, lets start by letting you imagine this situation whereby on a busy day suddenly you remembered its your mum’s, dad, husband, wife, son, daughter or even your bestie’s special birthday and you wanted to surprise them by sending a gift.

But sad to say, on that particular day you are not only busy with your daily chores plus you do not have the transport to send that special ‘gift’ that you have bought and kept for the day. 

So what’s the solution?

SEND an online application is the answer and solution to all your problem.



Launched recently, SEND is aim to fundamentally improve delivery of items with less hassle time. So all you need to do first off course is to download the app which is available on the iOS Apple Store and Google Play Store.

But whats more exciting, you can choose which ever mode of vehicle you need. If its just a small item and you want that parcel to reach fast then it would be wise to take the motorcycles or even a bicycles if the distance to the sender is just few kilometers away.



But if you need space and sending a huge item then you may choose either cars, vans or even lorries and rest assured your items be delivered  safe and sound within  the period of 2 hours upon receiving (or less if traffic is low).




That’s an awesome app don’t you think. Making life easy in this fast changing world of technology.

Thanks to the founder and CEO of SEND Malaysia,  Dato TP Chin  (below, right) who made the app available after identifying the trend, lifestyle, and demand for a delivery application that enables community-building. SEND believes that using such platform and technology will provide convenience to people whereby people spend less time travelling on their own to deliver items. 



“SEND is an on-demand delivery application-based platform that connects the Creator, SENDer and Recipient which we coined it as CSR. SEND utilized state of the art matching technology to allows the creator to choose the individual preferred SENDer to perform the job requested at the tip of the fingers and have the delivery done in secure and speedy manner.” said TP Chin.



To enable the Creator to have peace of mind on their delivery,  SEND application is equipped with live GPS system which enables them to monitor the SENDer(s) movement when job is in the progress. 

And lets’ hear what the Spanish partner, Jorge Lorenzo thinks about SEND:

 “I like the idea when it was first shared with me. I could see the opportunity of this technology going very far. I am looking forward to see how SEND financially empowers people, because it has always been my desire to contribute something back to the society, and I believe this is the right opportunity. I want to even introduce this platform to my own country to increase more job opportunity.”

THE SENDS Management team with their  5 top SENDERS and they are .Muhamad Izwan Shukrie b Mohd Yusop, Chiang Mei Yee, Mohd Zamri Zainal, Sureshkumar A/L Prakas Rao and  Zahari Mohamed Tahir.

Currently, the size of the SEND community has more than 10,000 people. TP targets to increase up to 300,000 by the end of year 2017, and the marketing team has already started promoting it in Klang Valley since second quarter of this year.

 SEND has already set some plans to expand the global market in the near future. And Malaysia is just a starting ground for the team. They plan to go into the Asia market by 2017. 

But what is more interesting, SEND do not only TAKE but they also GIVE..
Meaning, you guys or strong ladies out there can earn extra income by becoming a SENDER.

How does that work?


Well, to know more it would be advisable for you to check it out  at www.sendelivery.com/
In short, SEND is definitely an app to look out for,  the solution  to  your means of delivery communication.

TERBAIK!

KEVIN MAGNUSSEN MEET FANS AT BELL & ROSS

Rally with Bell & Ross this September as the French luxury timepiece brand joins forces with the Renault Sport Formula One Team over their mutual passion for mechanics, speed and precision on a shared quest: the race against time.

In celebration of the upcoming Malaysian Grand Prix, Bell & Ross together with Cortina Watch launched a Lifestyle Pop-up Store from 1 to 30 September 2016 at Level 1, Suria KLCC showcasing a range of core collection watches, including pieces unveiled at the international watch and jewellery industry show BaselWorld 2016.

A cocktail event hosted by Bell & Ross and Cortina Watch was held at this Bell & Ross Pop-up Store in Suria KLCC in the presence of Mr. Carlos-A. Rosillo, CEO & Co-founder of Bell & Ross, Cortina Watch VIPs, guests, watch and sports enthusiast, celebrities and media.

Also as part of this month long campaign, a Meet & Greet session featuring a special appearance by Renault Sport Formula One Team driver Kevin Magnussen (pix above, left) was held on 28 September 2016 at the same venue.

During the event at the Bell & Ross Pop-up Store, the limited edition collection of commemorative timepieces especially created for the partnership – the BRX1 RS16 was given the spotlight. This collection was exclusively available on the paddock at selected Grand Prix and now can be found at the Bell & Ross Pop-up Store in Suria KLCC, as well as other boutiques and retailers.



The BR-X1 RS16 watches, named after the team’s new R.S. 16 race car for the 2016 Formula One season, were envisioned to be extreme versions of the watchmaker’s iconic BR01 just as Formula One racing cars are the ultimate version of a car. 

Both the BR-X1 RS16 Skeleton Chronograph and BR-X1 RS16 Skeleton Chronograph Tourbillion models were created to withstand extreme conditions, and are armoured, ingenious, robust and highly technical timepieces that stand out thanks to the innovative design of its 45mm multi-material case. Crafted with materials such as grade 5 titanium and Carbone Forgé® – a high-tech composite material consisting of molded compressed carbon fibers and thermosetting resin – the BR-X1 watches are immensely light yet incredibly strong, built to withstand any impact a driver would face on the racing track. As a nod to the Renault Sport Formula One Team, both timepieces feature yellow rubber accents on the crown and rocker push buttons in the very same shade associated with the team.



Only 250 and 20 pieces of the limited edition BR-X1 RS16 Skeleton Chronograph and BR-X1 RS16 Skeleton Chronograph Tourbillion watches respectively are available worldwide.

On 28 September 2016, Renault Sport Formula One™ Team racing driver Kevin Magnussen made a special appearance at the pop-up store at Suria KLCC for a Meet & Greet session at 5.00PM. 


“We are very happy with the collaboration with Renault Sport Formula One™ Team so far, and certainly are look forward to seeing them in action at the Malaysian Grand Prix,” said Carlos A. Rosillo, CEO of Bell & Ross. “Renault Sport Formula One™ Team and Bell & Ross share a common goal of pushing the limits of mechanics in a Race Against Time, and our partnership is symbolic of what can be achieved when precision and speed come together to form a synergy that could only lead to victory.”

Following the opening of numerous Bell & Ross boutiques throughout the world in 2015, the brand has taken over distribution and marketing of its timepieces in Asia from its previous distributor, FJ Benjamin. Locally, Bell & Ross watches are available at the Bell & Ross boutiques in Pavilion KL, The Gardens KL, and Gurney Plaza Penang as well as licensed retailers in Malaysia.

'SOUFFLE DE VELVET' 8 COLOR ENRICHED


It was a fun day when yours truly joined the launch of the latest colours of Bourjois rounge edition namely Souffle de Velvet with sheer matte effect.

Actually its been some time since Kak Fas had joined beauty events of which the last was Physician Formula which was also brought and invited by Watson.

But this time, the invite is to review all lipstick, nothing more than lipstick.
Wow! At first sight Kak Fas had fallen In love with the packaging and the eight new colours provided by Bourjois.



But most of all, the setting done at Mad About Coco restaurant at Farenheit 88 compliment the exciting launch and introduction of ‘Souffle de Velvet’ by Bourjois.

Honestly, this is the first time Kak Fas am introduced to this French name product of beauty. Though lipstick is one of my favourite choice when it comes to cosmetic product, but Bourjois was not in the shopping list. 

Well, thinking about it I do regret not having the opportunity to try Bourjois line up. Anyway, its better late than never and having the chance to try not one but 8 colours of Souffle de Velvet was fun.

Having attended the event, am now aware that Bourjois Rouge Edition Souffle de Velvet is the new sister product to the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Liquid Lipsticks, it’s supposed to be a ‘sheer veil of matte colour’ in contrast to the ‘intense 24hour hold’ colour that is its predecessor.

Looking at 8 of them in a row was quite astonishing though confusing. Why am I confused?

You see, at a glance,their colours look almost alike  and similar. These shades all sit in a coral sort of family with not a huge amount to distinguish between them.  

The similarity makes Kak Fas more confused as to which was which that I have tried. Though they are numbered from 1 to 8 but I really do have to jot down the numbers after trying each of them.

But, colour similarities aside. Trying on this lipstick, one could feel that it  texture have a lightly emollient finish that slides around a bit and makes it look like you are applying a gloss first. But when you re apply it over again they then settle into a matte finish.



So If you're into liquid lipsticks, you may want to  grab some of your favourites as Bourjois has a phenomenal range of wearable  colours to suit all and most of all its so light to wear.
This soft, balm like texture of Souffle de Velvet hydrates lips for up to 10 hours leaving them comforted with a playful pop of colour.


The eight new colours are numbered and named as:

01 Orangélique: A fresh and energizing orange for a diabolically angelic smile.
02 Coquelic’oh!: A very dense and bold orange red.
03 VIPeach: Neither orange, nor pink, this coral makes the lips peachy soft.
04 Ravie En Rose: A charming and delicate pink for kissable lips… give in to the temptation… laugh

Likewise, the activities during this event will encourage children to open a can of imagination – to tap into their creativity and imagination. When you open a can of PLAY-DOH compound, it inspires endless possibilities of what you can create with PLAY-DOH.

"I would like to extend my personal thanks to our Doh-Bassadors for agreeing to be a part of this initiative. Having been around for 60 years, PLAY-DOH is proud to play a part in the childhood of many of these individuals. Many of them are parents themselves now, using PLAY-DOH to cultivate creativity in their very own children.” 

With humble beginnings as wallpaper cleaner, the PLAY-DOH brand has come a long way. The modelling compound brand is now available in more than 50 colours and more than 3 billion cans of PLAY-DOH compound have been squished and squashed since 1956. 

The PLAY-DOH brand continues to encourage creative, hands-on play with its various play patterns such as Food Role Play, Shape and Learn and PLAY-DOH Town.

Though yours truly was also in a black attire but off course it does not measure to the elegant and sophisticated looks of all the guests that attended KL SOGO’s Business Partners’ Appreciation Banquet 2016 held at the prestigious Shangri-La Hotel Kuala Lumpur recently.



Especially when on so call ‘duty cum dinner’ off course yours truly need to dress comfortably so much so its easier to  move when the need arise like taking photos etc.

KIPLING SUMMER PRE-FALL 2016 ARE AWESOME!

It was a fun day indeed…. 

First you get to watch the latest Kipling Summer Pre-Fll 2016 Collection… then on to the “hoponhopoff” Kipling Summer Bus around the iconic landmarks of cosmopolitan KL city tour along  KL Tower to Petronas Twin Tower – Suria KLCC, passing  Central Market and back to Lepaq Lepaq Café – where Kipling’s event kicked off.



Actually this is the first time Kak Fas joined the Kipling event, thanks to  bridgespr who manages the invites…you are all awesome.. as awesome as all products displayed and showcased during the Summer Pre-Fall 2016 Collections launched.

In fact this is the first time Kak Fas look closely on all of Kipling’s products, which was named after Rudyard Kipling (below), who wrote the fictional story ‘Jungle Book’ in 1894.



The story goes like this:

“In 1987, three designers in Belgium discovered crinkled nylon fabric, and Kipling was born….the spirited monkeys in the  Jungle Book story became the main inspiration for Kiplings products….”

Short and precise right?

And the result is a colourful array of handbags, backpacks, luggafe and accessories, created for the gal-on-the-go in mind. Every design is seriously playful, positively stylish and delightfully carefree – letting you live by your own rules.



Though yours truly have passed the gal-on-the-go age group hahaha…. Kak Fas finds the product still suitable for ladies that are still stylish,  vogue and fashionable…. knowing many grandma’s nowadays too are still  ‘young at heart’ and updated with the fashion industry mind you.


Kipling’s Summer Pre-Fall 2016 collection this season takes consumers on a journey to the City Jungle thus its design is centred by lush greens combined with pops of colours reminiscent of exotic birds and reptiles, accentuated by shades of red, orange, buttercup and wild rose.

And when Summer enters the calendar year, its time for holidays.  With that, pack all your belongings into Kipling’s Cyrah S, a cabin sized wheeled bag. With a retractable handle and four spinning wheels, jet setting across the globe has never looked this stylish.



This easy-reach zipped compartment at the front offers extra space for last-minute additions.

During any travel, Kak Fas would recommend that you grab a travel tote bag for easy excess to important documents like passport and personal items like make up kit, smartphones and the like.


You may choose Kipling’s travel tote that is adorned with a tropical floral print for example the Art M, a multifunctional travel tote that;s big  on versatility. Zippers on the side allow the bag to be customized ito two shapes, rectangular or triangular and three additional pockets that could help you to securely store small items.

The two strap shoulder tote features a perforated leather effect, while the Hot Green colour which is my favourite adds a pop of colour to your holiday wardrobe.





But if you wish for a much smaller bag, then get your hands on Maelissa S, a super practical shoulder bag that gives you enough room for everything despite its compact size.
Actually, having a shoulder flat top  bag that you can strap on to your body  provides comfort and security  making its easier for you to use your free hands to drag your large luggage. 

The mottled finish and sleek texture of this Kipling’s Maelissa S, adds a modern finish as it comes with a main zipped compartment and an ooen front pocket with a metal strap fastening.



If you have a family, after a memorable holiday then its back to school for the children. And they would love to start their schooling with a new backpack where Kipling’s Clas Seoul is one product to eye for.

With large front zipped pocket and interal organizer comprising a mobile phone pocket, pen loop, wallet pouch and key clasp, children would love it as a gift before another long month of study before the next holiday.

The new softer structure also makes it friendly for younger children and the sturdy top handle makes carrying easier. Then add your own style to your new backpacks with Kipling’s Monkery Pullers, a collectible zipp pull covers with funky monkey faces to jazz up your favourite new Kipling’s bags.

The best part that Kak Fas am sure all Kipling’s fan are waiting for is to be a lucky person to win Kipling;s bag.





Remember earlier Kak Fas mention about getting on the ‘hoponhopoff’ Summer Bus? 
Here’s the catch….

Throughout the month of June, spot the Kipling Summer Bus and take part in the ‘Count the Kipling Monkeys’ contest. Where winners stand a chance to walk awa with awesome Kipling bags.

How to participate? Read the rules:

1. Catch the Kipling Summer Bus at Kipling roadshows and activities.
2. Count the number of monkeys depicted on the exterior of the bus.
3. Submit your entry with a creative caption via Kipling’s Facebook.
4. Write a creative caption to go with your entry.
5. Stand a chance to win bags!

Simple and easy right?  So start counting when you come across the Kipling Summer Bus. 
Well, there’s more…..


Selfie lovers can also put their skills to good use by participating in the Kipling Summer Selfie activity. All you have to do is take your best selfie with the Kipling Summer Bus or with the Kipling monkey on the bus and upload it to your Instagram with the hashtags #MyKipling and #KiplingSummerFun2016 to redeem exclusive Kipling merchandise on the spot.
Yet, that’s not all…. Purchase  Kipling products worth RM500 and above to stand a chance at scoring flight tickets worth more than RM30,000.



Anyway, what Kak Fas can say is, all Kipling’s Summer Pre-Fall 2016  Collections are beautiful that there are endless words to describe the wonderful products on display. 
Its truly ‘love at first sight’ for Kak Fas and guess after this I  would be a Kipling lover and #make happy for myself in line with Kipling’s tagline….yeah!

MAGNUM: ADAKAH ANDA 'PINK' ATAU 'BLACK'

Apabila terima undangan untuk hadir di majlis pelancaran ais krim jenama popular, 'Magnum'. Kak Fas pasti tidak menolak untuk hadir sebab Kak Fas ini sebenarnya penggemar ais krim.

Sebut je la apa jenis ais krim, memang Kak Fas suka. Kalau ais krim Magnum, favourite Kak Fas adalah Magnum Classic. Bukan bermakna ais krim flavor lain tu Kak Fas tak suka tetapi selalunya Kak Fas lebih suka yang original.



Terbaharu, Magnum melancarkan Magnum Pink dan Magnum Black. Menariknya, setiap kali Magnum memperkenalkan perasa terbaharunya mesti dilancarkan dalam majlis yang glam dan unik.

Pelancaran yang diadakan baru-baru ini pun tidak terkecuali. Para tetamu digalakkan memakai pakaian rona merah jambu dan hitam, mengikut kehendak majlis yang dianjurkan dan dikendalikan dibawah pengurusan syarikat perhubungan Salina & Associates PR Sdn Bhd begitu teratur sekali.



Bertempat di Aloft Kuala Lumpur, 'Mood' merupakan tema utama pada hari itu, bermula dari pintu masuk ke ruang acara sehinggalah kepada dekorasi majlis.

Setiba sahaja di meja pendaftaran, para tetamu disambut mesra dan dipakaikan tag sensor di pergelangan tangan mereka dan sebaik sahaja 'check in' dilakukan, tertera nama  tetamu pada skrin komputer. Satu kelainan pada pendaftaran konvensional kebiasaannya.

Wow! Menarik kan tetapi pasti yang terfikir selepas itu, buat apa lagi dengan tag tangan ni?

Rupanya tag tangan tersebut adalah 'paspot' untuk digunakan sepanjangan majlis bagi mengakses empat stesen 'Pink & Black'  dan sebagai ukuran warna mood anda ketika berdaftar masuk dan keluar kelak.

 Kesemua mood ini akan direkod dan dipamerkan pada paparan skrin MAGNUM, sekaligus memberikan laporan secara langsung kepada para hadirin berkenaan mood MAGNUM pada malam tersebut.  

Bermula dengan ujian interaktif yang terletak di kiosk MAGNUM MOODOLOGY, setiap tetamu mengambil bahagian untuk menentukan samada mereka tergolong dalam rona merah jambu atau hitam. 

Dan apabila masuk sahaja dewan, pelbagai lagi'stesen'  berkaitan mood disediakan sepertii MAGNUM PINK & BLACK PLEASURE BAR yang menyediakan aneka pemanis mulut dan minuman yang diinspirasi daripada kedua-dua aiskrim terbaru itu. 

Kemudian ada pula  stesen MAKE MY MAGNUM  bagi tetamu yang berminat untuk mencipta sendiri hiasan MAGNUM PINK & BLACK menggunakan topping eksklusif berwarna merah jambu dan hitam. 
Para undangan juga turut berpeluang mengambil gambar mereka di photobooth MAGNUM MOMENT yang menjadi stesen paling mendapat sambutan walau pun 'queue' panjang.

Kak Fas dan rakan-rakan pun apa lagi... bergambar sakanlah....rasanya dua tiga kali jugalah merakamkan foto kenangan. Bila nampak Amber Chia, ambil gambar lagi...begitulah gelagat masing-masing apa tah lagi ada juga para artis yang hadir seperti Farrah Amin, Sherry Ibrahim, Nadia Brian, Diana Danielle dan suami, Farid Kamil serta ramai lagi.



Tentu sekali mereka tidak terlepas daripada melayan peminat yang ada untuk bergambar. Nama pun 'public figure' kan kenalah layan. 

Acara pada petang itu dimulakan dengan ucapan pembukaan oleh Nadia Heng diikuti dengan kata aluan oleh Encik Rakesh Mohan, Pengerusi Unilever Malaysia, Singapore, Myanmar & Laos.

“Kami sentiasa berusaha untuk memberikan yang terbaik kepada para konsumer dengan inovasi yang berterusan. Kenikmatan dan kemewahan sememangnya tiada batasan, begitu juga dengan aiskrim Magnum. Kami berasa amat bertuah kerana mempunyai pengguna dan peminat setia dan kami tidak akan berhenti dari memanjakan mereka dengan lebih kenikmatan dalam bentuk yang unik dan serba baru,” kata Encik Rakesh Mohan.



Ucapan yang ringkas disambung dengan  persembahan tarian video mapping yang dinamik, memaparkan mood PINK dan BLACK dalam bentuk gerakan, tempo dan pencahayaan khas, sebelum  acara kemuncak  berlangsung .... iaitu pelancaran MAGNUM PINK & MAGNUM BLACK. 

Sewaktu itu, para tamu disajikan dengan kedua-dua ais krim perisa itu. Dan sambil makan, mata dan telinga pula dihiburkan dengan persembahan medley yang mencerminkan elemen-elemen mood warna PINK dan BLACK oleh penggesek biola terkenal Dennis Lau.



Pentas penutup diambil alih oleh persembahan  mantap dari penyanyi sensasi tanah air Ning Baizura. Malam itu Ning nampak jelita sekali  ala cleopatra gayanya.



Opps lupa pulak nak citer fasal ais krim Pink dan Black ini.

Kak Fas dan rasa kedua-duanya, cuma jika diberi pilihan mungkin Kak Fas lebih suka Magnum Black sebab Magnum Pink rasa lebih manis.

MAGNUM BLACK yang melambangkan kemewahan mempunyai  rasa Espresso yang pekat menyelusuri setiap pelusuk aiskrim Vanilanya. Ia disaluti dengan lapisan coklat Tanzania yang tebal, menghasilkan rasa hebat sesuai untuk peminat kopi gourmet dan coklat.  

Mankala, MAGNUM PINK mengetengahkan keenakan perisa Buah Delima Merah Jambu digabung dengan sos Buah Delima. Di bahagian luarnya bersalut Coklat Belgium berona merah jambu. Bukan itu sahaja, rasa Buah Delima yang membangkitkan jiwa serta warna merah jambu yang ceria mencerminkan mood yang gembira, teruja dan penuh dengan semangat.  


Menariknya, pada akhir majlis, setiap tetamu perlu 'check out' bagi mendapatkan 'mood' sebenarnya dan mood Kak Fas tertera PINK pada hal masa 'check in' ia tertera BLACK.
Jadi dengan warna itu juga  Kak Fas diberikan cenderamata berupa tumbdrive berbentuk ais krim Magnum rona PINK bersama sekotak ais krim MAGNUM PINK & BlACK untuk dibawa pulang dan berkongsi pula dengan keluarga di rumah.





Seperti kata Rakesh, “dari rasa hingga ke warna, setiap ciri yang terdapat pada aiskrim ini telah dicipta dengan teliti bagi menepati setiap personaliti konsumer yang berbeza supaya para 'Pleasure Seekers' dapat menikmati aiskrim kegemaran mereka, bergantung kepada perasaan mereka pada ketika itu.”
