Malaysian Girls – The Review

The musicomedy kicks off with Tabitha Kong as Serenity Billion, who co-founded the Malaysian Girls beauty pageant with the just deceased Samsara Jaya, mourning his untimely death just weeks to showtime and pondering the future direction for both herself and the pageant.

Cue in sinister music and in struts THR deejay Aanantha as Dato’ Ray Sanjay, Samsara’s cashy, dashy and flashy brother, with his PA Siti Farrah Abdullah as the overly ambitious and not too scrupulous Jasmine Hibiscus, and her two hatchet men Freddy Tan as Gucci Lim and Alvin Looi as the token gay male, Bata Tan.

So what can you expect from the show?  *Warning* plot spoilers ahead!

Who Killed Jackson Mo?

Update: Click on the title for the review

November 16th 2011; 7.25 pm
Canning Garden, Ipoh

A man has died in his mansion, succumbing to multiple injuries on various parts of his body in Canning Garden Ipoh today.

The PDRM have confirmed the death, which happened around 5pm today when the man, Busines Tycoon and Ipoh Socialite Datuk Jackson Mo was believed to have been resting in his study at home before being brutally attacked by what is believed to be a planned attack by a few different suspects.

"Homicide squad detectives from the Ipoh IPD are investigating the multiple injuries sustained by Datuk Jackson in this gruesome murder and will hopefully get to the bottom of the case as soon as possible" a PDRM spokesman said.

Assistant Superintendent of Police and Chief Investigating Officer Hamzah Mat Noor said police received a call about two men trying to break into number 52 Canning Garden around 4.30 pm.

At the same time, another call was made to the PDRM from somebody who claimed to be inside the mansion that was being broken into, saying that two men were after him.

When police arrived, they found one man hiding in a closet, another man holding a knife and a woman inside a box.

ASP Hamzah said one man tried to escape and struggled with police before being arrested. The PDRM were also shocked to recover 3 KG's of marijuana and 400 grams of unprocessed heroin from this suspect. Upon further investigation the PDRM also discovered 4 'parangs' and 2 unused molotov cocktails in a backpack carried by the suspect.

A witness who refused to be named then saw another man climbing from the balcony of the mansion. That man fell, narrowly missing four police officers who had just arrived at the scene.

‘‘We don’t know whether these parties are known to each other,’’ ASP Hamzah said.

‘‘So it’s too early at this stage to give a full briefing.’’

Police who were at the scene at the time have not yet been interviewed. The PDRM have also apprehended the following suspects to aid with the investigation:

Anne James, Davina Goh, Nabihan Yaacob, JD Menon, Terence Conrad and Jon Chew

The mansion was cordoned off this evening and the general public are urged to come forward and help with this investigation.

Please help us find out 'WHO KILLED JACKSON MO?'

The KLCC Seni Festival returns at Dewan Filharmonik Petronas

(click image for larger picture)

Fresh from the success of the inaugural KLCC Seni Festival last year, Dewan Filharmonik PETRONAS (DFP) will continue to present an extravaganza in the form of a week-long celebration of music and arts called KLCC Seni Festival 2011 this month.

The idea behind the Festival was inspired by the fact that KLCC itself is a hub for the arts; DFP showcases the best in music and luminaries from various genres, Galeri PETRONAS houses a prolific collection of art pieces and installations from renowned artists, and Petrosains is the perfect place to experience the wonders of science and engage creative and expressive processes – a natural synergy of the arts all under the KLCC roof. Hence, this event promotes and celebrates Malaysian arts through a festival set at the iconic twin towers.

Malaysians shall again witness history in the making via a celebration of different forms of art; be it dance, music and other performing arts. With a predominantly Malaysian theme, the Festival will kick-off when the MPO Seni Ensemble joins forces with renowned local dance troupe ASWARA Dance Company on Wednesday, 26 October 11 at 8.30 p.m. Themed ‘Living Traditions’, both groups will perform six contemporary works combining music and dances. The DFP stage will witness sizzling performances of Wirama, Tapak 4 and Alarippu by renowned local choreographers such as Joseph Gonzales, Shafirul Azmi and Umesh Shetty. These will be followed by three works to be performed by the MPO musicians; Lex, Trio Tradisi and Vespertine Formations complemented by brand-new dances. Experience the synergy as the best of Malaysia’s dancers and musicians collaborate!

Next, the Festival celebrates ‘Malaysian Diversity’ on Friday, 28 October 11 at 8.30 p.m. The showcase will feature Orkestra Tradisional Malaysia under the leadership of Mohd Yazid Zakaria. The ensemble will showcase the rich cultural diversity of our country through music and songs, featuring guest singers Jaclyn Victor, Iqwal Hafiz and an Orang Asli group called Bahbola. Among the songs included in the repertoire list are Gemilang, Joget Kenangan Manis, Somewhere, Corazon Espinado, P Ramlee’s medley, Pak Ngah Balik, Santubong, Sayang Kinabalu, Dondang Sayang, Empat Dara and Zapin Budi. The showcase will reflect the racial harmony through artistic endeavours that embraces the 1Malaysia concept. It is jointly presented by Istana Budaya (Ministry of Information, Communication & Culture).

On Saturday, 29 October 11 at 8.30 p.m., we present you ‘MPO’s Native Foray’ whereby the Seni Groove Ensemble, led by MPO trombonist Marques Young, will present music inspired by P Ramlee, Sheila Majid, Siti Nurhaliza, James Brown and Ibrahim Ferrer, to showcase the best of local and foreign influences right here at our doorstep. Celebrate a brand new musical concoction inspired by a Westerner’s lifestyle in Malaysia.

The finale of the Festival is a showcase themed ‘Johor Heads North’ performed by Badan Kesenian Warisan Johor on Sunday, 30 October 11 at 8.30 p.m. Zapin dance and ghazal music come alive on the DFP stage. The finesse involved in mastering this artistry has impressed many and gained worldwide recognition. Be enthralled when you witness ‘Pesona Jauhar’, a musical of four segments; Tika Dinihari, Terbitnya Suria, Cahaya Mega and Berlabuhnya Malam Permata Tetap Bersinar.

(Note: In conjunction with the Festival, there will be an exhibition and workshop at Galeri PETRONAS, Level 3, Suria KLCC. Admission is FREE. For details, please call 03-23317770.)

Puma Stores Re-Open With Fresh Retail Concept

PUMA will revamp assortments, merchandising and store layouts in Klang Valley following results from a recent study. With consumer shopping trends around the world gearing towards a more ”holistic“ approach, PUMA’s revamped concept stores, now termed PUMA Retail 2.0, promises to engage consumers on a multitude of levels whilst elevating their overall shopping experience.

Kicking things off is its concept store in Pavilion KL, located on the iconic Jalan Bukit Bintang stretch. The 136.1 square meter store is now not only brighter and more inviting, but consumers walking in will instantly see a clear distinction – male and female products are placed on the right and left hand corner of the store respectively, and in between both sections is a “catwalk” display of lifestyle footwear, providing consumers with a feel of the shoes as they walk around in them. For consumers in a rush, the store’s more prominent window display – slated to change after every two to three months – will provide them with preview on what’s new, thus incentivising them to drop by and check it out when they have a bit more time on their hands. 

“We are constantly improving the design of PUMA stores as we want to provide consumers with a more relaxed shopping experience with simplified zones or sections for sport and lifestyle wear. Whether you’re fashion savvy or sports-inclined, you’ll easily find what you need from PUMA’s newest Motorsport, Lifestyle, Running, Fitness and Black Label collection,” said Gabriel Yap, Head of Marketing for PUMA Malaysia.

Gabriel believes that taking on a more contemporary design similar to PUMA concept stores in Japan and Europe will provide Malaysians with the same take-out that other customers are experiencing with PUMA products worldwide. “Malaysians now do not have to travel to neighbouring or international countries to soak in the ‘PUMA experience’; what is now available in Kuala Lumpur is on par with the rest of the world, and I truly believe that it timely as Malaysians have become more discerning when it comes to product choices and their overall shopping experience. Both are symbiotic and go hand-in-hand.”

Come this December, consumers living around Petaling Jaya will be able to imbibe in the experience when PUMA Retail 2.0 concept store opens in One Utama shopping centre. In January 2012, KL-ites will be treated to its brand new concept store in KLCC (Kuala Lumpur City Centre), providing them with an enhanced PUMA retail experience like no other.

Craft Brews goes Rogue

Press Release
Always at the Forefront of the Beer Experience, Craft Brews is Going Rogue

Petaling Jaya, 13 September 2011. 

Damansara’s gastronomic open-secret, Craft Brews, tonight expanded beer-lovers’ taste horizons by introducing a unique range of imported craft beer, Rogue. With a myriad of flavour from a more traditional Mom Hefeweizen to some quite spicy numbers such as Brutal IPA or OREgasmic Ale, this range of beer will extend the palate of any enthusiast.

Launched tonight was a selection of eight fine beers from the Rogue range – four available on tap, four available by the bottle. Even with such a selection, themes were evident with the Chocolate Stout, Mocha Porter, and Hazelnut  Brown Nectar, along with some more traditional-styled beers like Mom Hefeweizen. Quite unique on the range is Juniper Pale Ale, which may be considered the beer-lover’s equivalent  to a gin and tonic; and Dead Guy  Ale, the drink of the ‘living and the dead’, as featured recently on Supernatural, a popular American television series.

Whilst tonight launched eight of the Rogue range, it is only the beginning for Craft Brews as they plan to introduce more of the range over time. Already in the pipeline for introduction to their menu later in the year are Somer Orange Honey Ale, Chipotle Ale, and Morimoto Black Obi Soba. Rogue’s diverse and intriguing range is definitely something the Craft Brews team plan on sharing with their customers. Craft Brews remains committed to bringing the finest quality and most exciting range of beers to its customers. 

Emcee’d by popular radio personality Linora Low, the evening had a great party atmosphere. High in energy, with lots of amber gold flowing, accompanied by specialty dishes the Craft Brews kitchen has become famous for, the crowd had plenty of opportunity for additional fun, with beer-inspired games getting them worked up. Spin-the-bottle, a risque game from our teenage years, offered torturous chili’s and ginger as punishments, some more mild options, a few Rogue rewards, and of course, bottles of Rogue for all those who spun. Traditional ‘keg weightlifting’, along with other games also consumed the crowd and got people looking, if not drinking. 

Craft Brews focusses on what its name suggests – serving craft beer. A craft beer is one that avoids using fillers, thickeners and artificial flavours, and generally results in a beer drinking experience that embraces natural flavour with a myriad of ingredients to create outstanding taste sensations. Craft beers simply show how beer can be extended in flavour, and how what we perceive as a traditional beer can be transformed into a new world of flavour. Since their opening, Craft Brews has fast gained a reputation for excellent beer, great food, and a really fun environment.

“Our mission is to continually extend the beer drinking experience for Malaysians, to let our customers try the best of what is available in the world of beer, and to show that beer is not just the drink we used to think it was – there are so many flavours that we can enjoy. Beer is the new wine, as we look at helping people further appreciate taste explosions, and the subtleties of new flavours and fresh ingredients. Tonight is simply the beginning of our journey with Rogue; there is definitely more to come” explained Paul Khong, Business Owner of Craft Brews.

Rogue originated in the United States, and has fast been viewed as a sought-after beverage worldwide. Rogue ales are made with the finest hops and barley malt, free range coastal water and Pacman top fermenting proprietary yeast. Preservative, additives, chemicals are never added, leaving every Rogue Ale a true craft beer. Rogue is bottled using an oxygen absorbing cap, brown glass for better shelf life, and plenty of malted barley and hops to provide stability.

Rogue continues to enjoy the recognition of its professional peers for quality, innovation, and dedication to the perfection of the craft of brewing. Having won numerous awards internationally since its inception in the late 1980’s, Rogue continues to be at the forefront of craft beer production, and in sharing the love of beer with the world. A great parallel to Craft Brews, who seek to share their love of fine beer, ‘one pint at a time’. 

The Rogue range is exclusively available in Malaysia at Craft Brews. To sample for yourself, come on down to Craft Brews and experience their special brand of hospitality, expand your drinking horizons, and truly enjoy going Rogue with Craft Brews.

Craft Brews is located at G3 Podium, Ground Floor, Menara KLK, 1 Jalan PJU 7/6, Mutiara Damansara, 47810 Petaling Jaya, Selangor. Craft Brews is open daily from 12:00 noon until late. For reservations please telephone 03-7722-3000. You can find Craft Brews on Facebook and on Twitter @CraftBrews.

MASiF 2011 - Bigger Better & Bolder

A unique artistic event, encompassing music, art and style (fashion), designed to commemorate a very special day in Malaysian history, whilst providing talented performers, artists and designers a platform to Shine.

Kuala Lumpur, 16 June 2011: Today celebrates the launch of an event that is truly and uniquely Malaysian – MASiF 2011 (Music, Arts, Style and International Festival). Held at the prestigious Malaysian Petroleum Club on the 42nd Floor, Tower 2 of the Petronas Twin Towers, Kuala Lumpur, the event, taking place for the 2nd year running, was attended by MASiF’s sponsors, business partners and distinguished personalities from Malaysia’s creative arts industry.
The launch commenced with a visual display of MASiF 2010, followed by guests being familiarised with MASiF 2011 and the countdown towards the prestigious event, simply entitled “Road to MASiF”. A performance by local gambus player, Fauziah Suhaili aka Fauziah Gambus, renowned watercolourist Ismail Kadir, and a mini fashion show by participating MASiF designers, Cosry, Von Jolly and Merlee Shariff also set the mood and provided attendees with a taste of what to expect with MASiF 2011. A unique event specially crafted for a historical day i.e. 1 Malaysia Day, to commemorate the richness of music, arts and style (fashion) diversities in Malaysia, the uniqueness of MASiF is its concept that transcends and synchronises three genres of art (fine arts, performing arts and fashion), fused together into a masterpiece on one stage over a period of 3 days.

“The contemporary world is filled with an upcoming generation that is embedded and emblazoned with ground breaking, inventive, intuitive and creative minds across all sectors. It is from this viewpoint that we sought to establish a platform for young Malaysian talent to showcase to the public their unique, individual skills in the various arts that comprise music, art and style”, said Ir. Adam Salim, President of MASiF.

MASiF was initiated in 2010 as a platform for Malaysian creativity and innovation, designed to be an event where young talent could let loose and show their abilities to the community, and at the same time, give them a platform to propel themselves onto the world stage to demonstrate their artistic abilities and creativity to the world.

“Last year, the event was supported and officiated by the Malaysian Prime Minister, Dato’ Sri Najib Tun Razak, which reinforced the contribution that MASiF made to the personal and professional development of young talent. With this in mind, our goal for 2011 is to continue supporting these individuals through several programmes collectively termed as the ‘Road to MASiF’”, added Ir. Adam Salim.

The ‘Road to MASiF’ programme is designed to provide individuals with an opportunity to participate in a series of activities such as a photography competition, a poster design competition, and a bowling tournament – in a bid to unleash creativity and further enrich the spirit of patriotism and community amongst Malaysians of all races.

The photography competition, kicked off on 1 June 2011 will end its run on 31 July 2011. Leveraging on the 1Malaysia concept, submitted entries are required to have a 1 Malaysia element, which can range from individuals, groups, locations, cultures or customs that reflect the harmony of Malaysia and the spirit of 1Malaysia. A strong and clear visual message is imperative, and winners of the three (3) categories – All Malaysians; Students; and Foreigners – will be able to take home with them prize money worth RM10,000 (All Malaysians) and RM5,000 (Students & Foreigners) respectively.

The poster design competition was also kicked off on 1 June 2011 and will end its course on 31 August 2011. Specifically targeting the youth, with a focus on 1Malaysia as well, shortlisted candidates will see their designs featured in Don’t Panic packs that will be distributed throughout universities and colleges in Malaysia and around the world. The winning artwork will be featured in the Petronas Gallery for a total of 2 weeks, where it will be stand proud amongst other featured artworks from local and international talents.

The bowling competition, on the other hand, will be held at Ampang Superbowl, Ampang Point on 9 July 2011, where a maximum number of 90 teams will battle it out prize money and hampers worth RM1,500 (1st Place), RM1,000 (2nd Place), RM700 (3rd Place) and RM300 (4th Place) respectively.

Come 11 September 2011, a few days before MASiF 2011 is open to the public, a series of on-ground activities organised by Don’t Panic, entitled ‘INVSN’ will swarm designated locations within the City Centre to create excitement and generate additional awareness on the event. Guerilla pop-up stores at strategic touch points around the City Centre will feature workshops on music, arts and fashion, providing city dwellers with little-known-facts and allowing them to find interesting locations, specialty stores, guides to the best bargains and a lot more.

This year, MASiF will be held in Suria KLCC Concourse in conjunction with Malaysia Day. The three day event will kick off on 15 September 2011 with “Lets MASiF”, where current hip-happenings in the world of contemporary music art and style will be highlighted through display, performance, and interactive opportunity. Day two, entitled “One MASiF”, will showcase Islamic, Environmental and Nationalistic content, touching on the rich diversity of Malaysian culture, along with a deeper understanding of working within the environment. The finale, to be held on 17 September 2011 is entitled “Massive MASiF”, and will feature successful international Malaysians and select regional artists, singers, musicians and designers sharing their inner passion to tantalise creative cravings.

“In the long run, we want MASiF to be synonymous with 1 Malaysia Day and be the starting point to drive international recognition for Malaysian talent. At the same time, we’re keen to work hand in hand with the government, and relevant partners to achieve the ultimate goal – increased tourism – as international travellers desire and seek to discover more about Malaysia. I also believe that having this event in conjunction with 1 Malaysia Day will encourage Malaysians to celebrate the rich diversity of culture through unity, commemorating the creation of the Malaysian Federation, through showcasing of their talent to the world”, concluded Ir. Adam Salim.

In addition to these three days, MASiF will also be holding other exciting events and activities over the same time. At the KLCC Esplanade, youth activities, cultural shows, street performances and the like will enthrall attendees over the three days, giving them a rounded, more interactive opportunity with the arts in general. Between 15 - 25 September 2011, at the Petronas Gallery, there will be an art exhibition featuring art work, photography, sculpture and illustration all resultant from the participants in MASiF 2011. Workshops and seminars related to the arts will also be available for the public to participate in, contribute to, and broaden their understanding.

Individuals who wish to find out more about or participate in MASiF 2011 can do so by logging onto: Together, let’s celebrate the new wave of creative talent to emerge out of MASiF 2011!

1 Mont Kiara


The advent of all-inclusive suburban shopping malls within proximity of residential areas heralds unprecedented convenience at the modern consumer’s doorstep. 1 Mont Kiara, set within the prestigious Mont Kiara precinct north of Kuala Lumpur’s city centre, represents a truly integrated shopping mall replete with shopping, dining and pampering for adults and kids of all ages. The upscale development is a stone’s throw from the numerous residential condominiums and office complexes comprising the Mont Kiara Township. With such strategic location and an eclectic tenant mix, 1 Mont Kiara is poised to become a veritable confluence of dining and shopping needs for the expatriates and discerning executives among the Mont Kiara populace.

1 Mont Kiara is wholly owned by ARA Asia Dragon Fund, the flagship private real estate fund of ARA Asset Management Limited. The latter is a real estate fund management company with retail assets in Singapore, Hong Kong and China exceeding RM44.3 billion in value. The mall represents ADF’s first successful foray into Kuala Lumpur (the first mall is AEON Mall in Malacca), Malaysia with other subsequent investments soon to follow.

Located away from the city centre, 1 Mont Kiara sets itself apart from conventional retail establishments by reaching out to the residents of the Mont Kiara precinct, as well as nearby estates – Sri Hartamas and Damansara, offering them a one-stop shop that will meet their daily basic needs as well as life indulgences, such as grocery, fashion, lifestyle, dining and fitness needs. Prominent tenants include Village Grocer, Fitness First Platinum, Young Explorer, Harvey Norman, LeAnn Maxima, iStudy, Urban Retreat Spa, World of Watches II,Tony Roma’s,Overtime, and many more. In the pipeline are plans for activities and promotions that focus on engaging and bringing together the Mont Kiara community. Such novel positioning will promote a sense of attachment, comfort and familiarity among residents in the vicinity, transforming 1 Mont Kiara into a social enclave and beyond the notion of a mere cookie cutter shopping mall.

Location: 1 Mont Kiara, No.1 Jalan Kiara, Mont Kiara 50480, Kuala Lumpur
