This year’s theme was inspired by the simple idea of taking a step back into the past and going back to nature, in a celebration of the full moon accompanied by lanterns, food, and most importantly, loved ones.

In the Chinese culture, Mid- Autumn festival indicates the end to the harvest period and the beginning of the Autumn season. Like in many festivals, we are surrounded by warm company and delicious food.

Making it fun and easy for shoppers, shoppers can find an array of mooncakes at the many booths available at Sunway Velocity Mall to shop from like Grand Imperial, Overseas, Pullman Hotel, Haagen Daaz, Tai Thong, and Inside Scoop.

Apart from the starling redemption prizes, during the ‘An Autumn Retreat’ campaign, Sunway Velocity Mall has organized many performances and workshops for kids. The workshops and performances were not only fun and engaging for the whole family, like the Mooncake Making Workshop, paper flower workshops, WuShu performances, Chinese diabolo, and Chinese Orchestra, but they are also embedded with Chinese cultural elements that kids can learn as they have fun while adults can reminisce the good times and share them with their kids.

Dengan sokongan Kotex®, koleksi tersebut menampilkan cetakan batik moden yang dihasilkan oleh artisan-artisan wanita di Batik Boutique, iaitu sebuah perusahaan yang memberi tumpuan untuk meningkatkan kemahiran golongan isi rumah berpendapatan rendah (B40). Cetakan batik moden ini direalisasikan pada koleksi ini oleh pereka bintang fesyen tanah air yang baru, Seza Zulkeple.

Cetakan batik ini pertama kalinya mencuri perhatian khalayak ramai dengan bungkusan Batik Edisi Terhad Kotex® yang dilancarkan pada Julai tahun ini. Ia telah disuntik secara kreatif ke dalam bungkusan Kotex® yang menggabungkan bentuk, fungsi dan fesyen. Batik Edisi Terhad Kotex® berpegang teguh kepada matlamat murni pergerakan global Kotex® #SHECAN untuk memperkasa wanita muda.

Pengurus Pemasaran Kimberly-Clark, Frenissa Lagman berkata, Kotex® komited memacu perubahan masyarakat di seluruh dunia bagi membantu wanita muda menangkis persepsi-persepsi yang ketinggalan zaman, di samping memperkasa mereka untuk meraih lebih kejayaan. Kerjasama dengan Batik Boutique dan KLFW merupakan hasil positif inisiatif Kotex® #SHECAN Fund di Malaysia, selain menyediakan satu lagi platform bagi menyokong tradisi rekaan batik yang menjadi kebanggaan kepada anak Malaysia.

“Kami berbesar hati untuk menampilkan Koleksi Batik Kotex® di Minggu Fesyen Kuala Lumpur.

Kami berbesar hati untuk menyokong impian beliau, yang turut membanggakan kita semua dengan rekaan menakjubkan. Rekaan beliau menunjukkan masih betapa relevan batik kepada fesyen hari ini secara kotemporari, dan juga berjaya menzahirkan intipati batik moden, serta mempamerkan cetakan batik Kotex® dalam satu koleksi yang minimalis, menarik perhatian serta ‘bold’. Artisan-artisan dari Batik Boutique dan Seza Zulkeple telah menonjolkan semangat #SHECAN, lantas menjadi inspirasi kepada wanita di seluruh dunia, bahawa mereka juga boleh mencapai apa jua kejayaan yang diidamkan.”

Koleksi Batik Kotex® menampilkan 15 koleksi sedia pakai yang menerapkan blok warna yang terang serta cetakan batik Kotex® untuk wanita kontemporari bergaya.

“Ia seakan-akan wanita menyokong sesama diri! Wanita harus bercita-cita besar dan mengejar impian mereka. Namun, dalam setiap perjalanan, kita juga perlu memberi sokongan antara satu sama lain untuk merealisasikan impian masing-masing,” kata Seza Zulkeple. Terang beliau lagi, blok warna serta motif batik dalam koleksi ini mencerminkan visinya untuk memperkasa wanita.

“Saya sangat meminati batik serta warna-warna terang dan menerapkan unsur-unsur positif ke dalam rekaan saya. Justeru, saya sangat teruja apabila diberikan peluang keemasan untuk bekerjasama dengan Kotex® untuk koleksi ini yang berasaskan misi memperkasa wanita, di samping menampilkan rekaan batik oleh artisan-artisan wanita di Batik Boutique.”

Buku Cerita Bertemakan Adiwira Jadi Pilihan MBO Cinema dan Me Books Asia

Adiwira dalam buku cerita ini wajar dijadikan idola oleh kanak-kanak apatah lagi bahan pembacaannya memang bertetapan dengan trend dewasa ini. 

MBO Cinemas x Me Books Asia_Image 2

Maka berbaloi gandingan MBO Cinemas dan Me Books Asia dalam  menyampaikan mesej bahawa setiap kanak-kanak mempunyai kekuatan, kehandalannya yang tersendiri dan mereka juga memiliki sifat-sifat seorang adiwira.

Kolaborasi antara MBO Cinemas dan Me Books Asia untuk menerbitkan siri buku cerita tersebut turut berupaya mengeratkan lagi hubungan keluarga dan menggalakkan masa berkualiti antara ibu bapa dan anak-anak mereka. Pada masa sama, ia turut memberi penekanan terhadap keajaiban sesuatu penceritaan yang tidak hanya terhad kepada lembaran buku melalui penyediaan kemudahan mesra kanak-kanak di Kecil Halls MBO Cinemas.

MBO Cinemas x Me Books Asia_Image 1

Ianya adalah permulaan bagi satu kerjasama panjang antara dua jenama berkenaan. Penerbitan buku cerita ini bertujuan untuk memupuk nilai-nilai penting dalam diri kanak-kanak di samping penyediaan pelbagai aktiviti menarik yang ditawarkan di Kecil Halls MBO Cinemas selepas ini.

Buku cerita ini dijual dengan harga RM50 senaskah semasa Kempen Derma Darah tahunan MBO Cinemas pada 24 dan 25 Ogos yang lalu di Starling Mall. Untuk menjadikan pengalaman penceritaan lebih menarik, buku audio interaktif juga boleh didapati dalam aplikasi Me Books Plus.

Pengurus Besar Jualan dan Pemasaran MBO Cinemas, Jamie Tiong berkata,

“Menjadi pawagam pertama di Malaysia yang mempunyai panggung khas mesra kanak-kanak yang dilengkapi dengan kawasan permainan dan tempat duduk berbaring untuk keluarga yang selesa, sememangnya amat bermakna bagi kami. Kami menyasarkan untuk terus menginovasikan perkhidmatan kami dan peluang kerjasama dengan Me Books Asia ini membolehkan kami melangkaui konsep pawagam konvensional. Kecil Halls telah mendapat sambutan hangat daripada orang ramai dan saya gembira untuk membawakan pengalaman unik ini kepada lebih ramai keluarga di seluruh negara.”

Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif dan Pengasas Bersama Me Books Asia, Hao Jin berkata,

“Bersama-sama dengan MBO Cinemas, kami berusaha untuk menggalakkan keluarga di Malaysia agar memupuk nilai kekeluargaan yang murni. Buku cerita ini dikarang khusus untuk kanak-kanak dan dilengkapi dengan audio dalam aplikasi Me Books Plus. Ia disampaikan oleh artis suara latar profesional dengan memberi penekanan terhadap sebutan dan intonasi terbaik bagi merangsang daya imaginasi dan pertuturan kanak-kanak. Menerusi kerjasama ini, kami berharap untuk memberikan buku ini secara percuma kepada semua ahli MBO STARCLUB pada masa akan datang. Kami gembira kerana dapat berganding bahu dengan MBO Cinemas dalam usaha memupuk generasi pencerita akan datang.”

Hasil daripada jualan buku cerita pertama berjudul, “Unleash The Superhero In You” akan disumbangkan kepada Yayasan Pendidikan Little Yellow Flower yang akan memberikan manfaat kepada kanak-kanak kurang bernasib baik yang tidak mendapat akses kepada pendidikan berkualiti.

Kerjasama ini juga akan menyumbangkan lebih 1,000 naskah buku cerita berkenaan kepada perpustakaan di lima buah negeri sempena kempen #MalaysiaMembaca yang dilancarkan oleh kerajaan menerusi rancangan Dekad Membaca Kebangsaan. Perpustakaan yang terlibat ialah Perpustakaan Negara Malaysia serta empat lagi perpustakaan di Selangor, Perak, Johor dan Sarawak.

Selebriti antarabangsa yang juga seorang ibu penyayang, Sinje Lee bersama-sama dengan personaliti masyarakat penyayang berpengaruh seperti Sarah Tan, Racheal Kwacz, Jay Jamalina dan Kristie Chan, masing-masing telah tampil untuk menyumbangkan suara mereka yang lunak sebagai tukang cerita di dalam buku audio tersebut. Buku cerita berkenaan boleh didapati dalam tiga bahasa iaitu Bahasa Melayu, Inggeris dan Mandarin.

“Unleash The Superhero In You” ialah sebuah cerita yang mengisarkan tentang watak Alison dan bagaimana sesuatu perkara itu tidak mencerminkan keadaan yang sebenar. Sepanjang kehidupannya, dia cuba melakukan perubahan besar dengan membantu orang di sekelilingnya. Sebagaimana yang kadang-kadang terjadi dalam kalangan ahli keluarga dan teman-teman, ianya lebih mudah untuk melihat dan mengkritik sahaja, tidak membabitkan diri dan tidak peduli terhadap nasib orang lain. Tidak sekadar mengharapkan sesuatu keajaiban, kita perlu membenarkan orang seperti Alison untuk menjadi sumber inspirasi bagi menyerlahkan adiwira di dalam diri kita demi membina dunia yang lebih baik. Kisah ini ditulis dengan niat untuk memberi inspirasi dan memupuk nilai murni dalam kalangan kanak-kanak.

Buku cerita berkenaan boleh didapati di lokasi-lokasi berikut:

Me Books Nooks
• Sunway Citrine Hub, Sunway Iskandar, Johor
• CzipLee Bangsar, Jalan Telawi 3, Kuala Lumpur
• CzipLee Mid Valley SouthKey, Johor

The Touch and Go Apps will exclusively downloadable only when in KidZania Kuala Lumpur, the kids will be able to trade in KidZos (the KidZania currency) using their own mobile phones or for those without one, a phone loan is made available for their transaction within the award-winning edutainment centre.

Kids will learn about financial literacy through spending their hard-earned KidZos via the mobile application or just by tapping at contactless payment terminals located throughout KidZania Kuala Lumpur.

“The app enables kids to check their balances online which would make them start thinking about saving and to be more financial-savvy. This is indeed a milestone for us as a role-playing indoor theme park in line with our motto of ‘Learn Life Today’. Helping kids understand financial aspects of earning a living is a key component of what we do here,” said Shahrul Nizar Ahmad, Mayor of KidZania Kuala Lumpur.

He said experts have suggested that financial literacy should be imparted to children as young as kindergarteners, citing preschools in England and Wales, where children are taught to use money, save and donate, which promotes responsible living.

Shahrul Nizar said although Malaysians are more attentive towards financial education and financial planning, the financial literacy gap in the country is acutely pronounced with the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) reporting Malaysia ranked 20th out of 31 countries tested on financial knowledge, attitudes and behaviour.

“This is across the general Malaysian population, what more among the young and children. Thus, what we’re doing here at KidZania Kuala Lumpur together with TNG Digital Sdn Bhd is crucial to inspire positive change among our young Malaysians!

“As the Malay proverb goes ‘Melentur buluh, biarlah dari rebung’, which means if we must nurture and mould someone, it is best to begin while they are still young”.

Its newly-appointed Chief Executive Officer Ignatius Ong, who was the guest of honour at the event said,

“Children in today’s world live in a technology-first environment, with some as young as 10 years owning and proficient with smartphones. As a cashless champion, we want to encourage all Malaysians – whether young or old – to embrace technology and consider going cashless. Through this partnership with KidZania, we are empowering the younger generation to learn about technology as well as financial education in a safe and controlled environment.”

“The younger generation can also act as cashless ambassadors, educating their parents who may be resistant to hop onto the cashless bandwagon on the benefits where convenience at one’s fingertips is key to a cashless lifestyle,” said Ignatius Ong.

With the Touch ‘n Go eWallet, get ahead at KidZania Kuala Lumpur with speedy entrance via the #terusgo lane at the ticketing counter. What’s more, visitors can enjoy 35% off tickets and 10% off merchandise when they use their Touch ‘n Go eWallet!

KidZania Kuala Lumpur is a 80,000 sq feet, kid-sized City offering children the opportunity to try their hands at 100 professions through role playing activities spread across 60 various establishments. Through this experiential journey, children learn to adopt positive behaviours that will help to groom them to handle the demands and challenges of everyday life.

The First McDonalds In Malaysia Is Now ‘Mekdi’ As Part of Celebrating Merdeka Day

Besides that, McDonalds Malaysia also introduces Nasi Lemak McD as part of the Merdeka Day celebration and 37 years of being Malaysian.

Photo 1 (17)

The signage for Mekdi, which is the localised nickname for ‘McD’, short for McDonald’s – is now prominently displayed at McDonald’s Bukit Bintang restaurant, the very first McDonald’s to open its doors in Malaysia back in 1982.

“Over the past 37 years, Malaysians have helped make McDonald’s Malaysia the recognised brand that it is today. As a gesture of appreciation for their continuous support, we decided to embrace the Mekdi name Malaysians have affectionately given us, which is now synoymous with our brand,” said Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer of McDonald’s Malaysia, Melati Abdul Hai.

In celebration of all things Malaysian this month, McDonald’s Malaysia has also introduced Nasi Lemak McD, its own version of a dish beloved by so many Malaysians. The meal comes complete with fragrant coconut rice, crispy anchovies, fresh cucumber, and fried egg, topped with spicy sambal. Customers can also maximise their meal experience by adding on Ayam Goreng McD and a cup of Iced Lemon Tea.

Photo 6 (5)

Recognising the popularity of Nasi Lemak amongst Malaysians, McDonald’s Malaysia has also initiated a nationwide petition on Change.org to rally for Nasi Lemak to be officially recognised as the national dish of Malaysia, with a target of gathering 1 million signatures by Malaysia Day (16 September). To be part of this movement, head over to http://chng.it/LDfjGDJsQs.

Nasi Lemak McD is now available in all McDonald’s Malaysia restaurants nationwide and will be a permanent item on McDonald’s menu, available 24 hours a day.

The Nasi Lemak McD set is only RM5.99 during breakfast hours and is served with an Iced Milo. During regular hours, the set is priced at RM12.99 with 1 piece of Ayam Goreng McD and an Iced Lemon Tea, while it is RM15.99 for 2 pieces of Ayam Goreng McD and an Iced Lemon Tea.

McDonald’s Malaysia – Malaysian at Heart

Since opening its first store in Bukit Bintang in 1982, McDonald’s Malaysia has localised almost its entire business – from its menu, suppliers, franchisees, community, and charity initiatives.

 Localised menu offerings: In addition to its core menu items, McDonald’s Malaysia continuosly introduces menu offerings that are distinctly Malaysian and appeals to local tastebuds, such as the latest Nasi Lemak McD and Extra Spicy Ayam Goreng McD. In fact, Malaysia was one of the first markets in the world to include Ayam Goreng in its menu. Local flavours are also infused in the dessert menu, such as the Cempedak McFlurry, Corn Pie, and Cendol Cone, all of which are currently available at McDonald’s restaurants nationwide.

 Locally sourced ingredients: 80 percent of McDonald’s Malaysia’s ingredients are sourced right here in Malaysia. Everything from chicken, to vegetables, and sauces – including Malaysians’ favourite Chilli Sauce – are produced or sourced locally. Only the freshest and highest quality local ingredients are used in all its exciting menu offerings.
 Restaurants are backed by an all-Malaysian workforce*: McDonald’s Malaysia currently employs 14,000 Malaysians, and the company is committed to providing local employees with equal and quality opportunities for development, training, and career advancement at every level.

 Franchisees are 100 percent Malaysian: McDonald’s Malaysia continues to work closely with local Malaysian entrepreneurs to grow the brand in areas such as Sabah and Sarawak. All 21 of our local franchisees are Malaysian, operating over 30 restaurants across Malaysia.

 Local grassroots activities: McDonald’s restaurants nationwide give back to local communities by organising various initiatives such as meal donations to local charities, Teacher’s Day celebrations as well as flood relief efforts. In 2018 alone, McDonald’s Malaysia held more than 10,000 community engagements.

 Charity initiatives for Malaysian children: Through Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC), McDonald’s Malaysia continues to support programmes that directly improve the health and well-being of children and their families. Another initiative close to McDonald’s heart is the ‘Back-to-School’ programme, which has benefitted 23,000 urban poor primary school children since 2017.

Melati added, “While McDonald’s is one of the most renowned global brands, McDonald’s Malaysia prides itself in being a Malaysian company at heart. Our business focuses on Malaysians and understanding their needs, whether through our menu items, charity efforts, or nurturing our talent.”
