SONY WF-1000XM3: Noise Free, Wire Free and Worry Free

The new addition of new generation truly wireless headphones – the WF-1000XM3,  Sony’s Industry-leading Noise Cancellation is improved further with the HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1e chip and Dual Noise Sensor Technology which delivers exceptional Noise Cancelling performance, enabling you to hear the music and nothing else.

The next level of silence

WF-1000XM3_S_MagnetHoldingChargingCase-Mid (1)

The WF-1000XM3 headphones feature Dual Noise Sensor technology that works with the new HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1e to catch and cancel noise respectively, so that all attention is on your music. Thanks to Dual Noise Sensor Technology, one feed-forward microphone and one feed-back microphone on the surface of the headphones catch more of the ambient sound around you.

Having caught the ambient sound, the dedicated HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1e gets to work. The processor cleverly creates an inverted sound wave to offset bothersome background noise. It not only cancels more noise across almost all frequencies but also uses less power. Anything ranging from annoying aircraft cabin noise, to hustle and bustle on the city streets, is dramatically cancelled by the buds – so it’s all about the music.

Exceptional sound quality

Characteristic of the 1000X family, you can enjoy premium, high quality sound on the WF-1000XM3 buds and listen to your music the way that the artist intended. The HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1e also accomplishes stunning sound thanks to 24-bit audio signal processing and DAC with amplifier. Digital Sound Enhancement Engine HX (DSEE HX™) upscales compressed digital music files including MP3 formats, to bring you closer to the quality of High-Resolution Audio. Fully immerse yourself in high quality sound, whether you’re listening to music or enjoying the latest movies on the go and thereby transform the dreaded commute into a fun and relaxing escape from the commotion around you.

True wireless, true freedom

The truly wireless design of the WF-1000XM3 buds allows you to move freely without the nuisance of getting tangled in wires. The WF-1000XM3 buds are small and light but manage to pack in a newly developed BLUETOOTH® chip. This allows for L/R simultaneous BLUETOOTH® transmission which means that both left and right earbuds receive audio content at the same time, rather than the conventional left-to-right relay BLUETOOTH® transmission. Teamed with the new optimised antenna structure, this results in a highly stable wireless connection, so nothing gets in between you and your music. Also, low latency syncs what you see on screen precisely with what you hear on your headphones for enjoyable TV shows, videos and more.

The WF-1000XM3 buds are specifically designed for improved comfort and stability in the ear. The ‘ergonomic tri-hold’ structure holds the earbuds firmly in place, with three supporting points for the ear. A high-friction rubber surface has also been included to ensure a stable fitting. With four sizes of hybrid earbuds and three sizes of triple comfort earbuds, you can find your perfect fit.

Clever convenience

The HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1e has low power consumption, boosting the battery life and your listening time considerably. You can listen for up to 24 hours with Noise Cancelling on, thanks to WF-1000XM3 earbuds’ sleek case that doubles up as a charger, perfect for a battery boost on the go. The buds even have a quick charge function – just 10 minutes of charging gives you up to 90 minutes of battery life.

For ease, you can use Quick Attention mode to communicate without removing your earbuds. Simply place your finger over the touch panel of the left earbud to quickly lower the music volume and let the ambient sound in, so you can hear announcements or order a drink. Plus, with the fully customisable touch sensors on the earbuds , you can easily play, pause, skip songs or activate your voice assistant with simple taps. Additionally, the new Wearing Detection feature automatically pauses your music when you remove one of the earbuds from your ear and resumes playing when you put the earbud back in your ear, so you never miss a beat.

Optimised for the Google Assistant , you can control your headphones by voice, making the WF-1000XM3 the perfect commuter companion. The headphones are also compatible with the Sony | Headphones Connect app, where you’ll find customisation features for sound, noise cancellation, touch controls and more.

Pricing and Availability

The WF-1000XM3 is available in Sony Stores KLCC and Curve, Sony Store online and all authorised dealers in Malaysia at RM949.

Mr Kevin Tan, COO, (right) and Ms Phang Sau Lian, General Manager, (left) officially launched Sunway Velocity Mall's An Autumn Retreat Campaign on 24th August

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.

Undoubtedly, mooncakes are a significant element during this festival. The round shape of the mooncake represents unity and family reunion and characters like ‘longevity’ and ‘happiness’ are imprinted on the top of the mooncake.

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. Not only that, there’s also a wide range of halal mooncakes too!

While shoppers shop for mooncakes at the mall, they can also shop for lanterns, desserts, and more at the mall to complete their Mid-Autumn celebration with their loved ones. Apart from the 20 mooncake vendors located at the Main Atrium and at Basement 1 level, shoppers can also find a variety of mooncakes at different outlets in the mall such as Dragon-i, Canton Kitchen, Tea Garden, Purple Cane, Bread Story, Esquire Kitchen, Nyonya Leaf and more!

As families comes together to shop for this reunion festival, shoppers also get to redeem prizes from two prize tiers when they shop at the mall from 21st August to 13th September 2019.

In collaboration with Astro, shoppers who spend RM100 in a maximum of two (2) receipts in the mall will get to participate in Astro’s Spin & Win to win exclusive prizes from Asto.

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.

On top of that, Sunway Velocity Mall also organised Mooncake Eating Contests to bring good food and hearty laughter to the mall. Sunway Velocity Mall’s “An Autumn Retreat” brought an abundance of joy and laughter to the community as they gather with friends and family in preparation for this annual festival.

Nourish Your Hair With DOVE 1 Minute Advanced Conditioners

As one of the world’s leading personal care brands, DOVE has stepped up to launch its first advanced solutions customised range of hair conditioners featuring THREE new conditioners that cater to different hair types with unique levels of damage.

Enjoy the Little Things that Make a Big Difference and Pamper Yourself at the #Dove1Minute Care - [L - R] Dove 1 Minute Serum Conditioner, Dove 1 Minute Milk Gel Conditioner, Dove 1 Minute Foam Conditioner

The 1 Advanced Minute range consists of:

  1. Dove 1 Minute Foam Conditioner
  2. Dove 1 Minute Milk Gel Conditioner
  3. Dove 1 Minute Serum Conditioner

Based on a research done by Edelman Berland, most women want to feel empowered to wear their hair any way they want and 4 out of 5 women say their hair is part of their identity. However, about 90% of hair care products available are still designed and formulated for the same idealized idea of beautiful hair.

IMG_20190815_150201

Speaking at the launch of Dove 1 Minute Advanced Conditioners, Dove Senior Brand Manager, Chloe Meng, said

“We believe that providing a range of products that would cater to the needs of their different hair types will help women feel confident in themselves when it comes to their hairstyle and texture. We understand that in today’s era, the average woman leads a very fast-paced and hectic lifestyle thus it pushes us as a brand to continuously develop products that are innovative and effective in this time and age.”

Each of the hair conditioners have been formulated with a unique technology that caters to women that have fine and thin hair, to oily and severely damaged hair. These conditioners effectively transform and repair the hair making it beautifully soft, non-oily, and volumising in just under a minute.

The Dove 1 Minute Foam Conditioner has been designed with tiny bubbles of moisture which is a weightless repair that is best suited for thin and fine hair. The technology behind it makes the 1 Minute Foam Conditioner lighter than most conditioners available in the market.

The Dove 1 Minute Milk Gel Conditioner is targeted for women with oily and damaged hair as it’s micro-conditioning complex ensures that the hair is not weighed down, oily or sticky.

The Dove 1 Minute Serum Conditioner also provides the most concentrated level of micro-conditioning complex and moisturisation for women with thick hair who happen to have strands that are extremely coarse or have undergone extreme heat or coloring damage.

Enjoy the Little Things that Make a Big Difference and Pamper Yourself at the #Dove1Minute Care - [L-R] Chloe Meng, Dove Senior Brand Manager, Natalie Goh, Hair Care Marketing Manager, John Goh, Dove R&D Deploy Man

“These products are formulated with keratin repair actives, micro-conditioning complex and serum capsules that have the ability to make one’s hair silky while being deeply treated. We believe that hair conditioners should not be a ‘one-product-fits-all’ as different hair types require different care.“ said John Goh of R&D Deploy Manager Home & Personal Care for Dove Malaysia.

Dove 1 Minute Foam Conditioner is formulated with the lightest level of Micro-Conditioning Complex and is a soft and gentle pillow of airy nourishment that instantly melts into the hair. The airy zero-weight nourishment foam contains small bubbles of moisture and is much lighter than a conventional conditioner which is best suited for fine and thin hair.

Dove 1 Minute Milk Gel Conditioner is formulated with Micro-Conditioning Complex and uses a plant-based moisturizing agent, replacing some of the heavier waxy ingredients found in regular conditioners. Its silky texture absorbs into the hair quickly.

The product leaves a fine coating of the micro-conditioning complex on the hair, so as not to weigh hair down nor make it oily or sticky making it ideal for oily and damaged hair.

Dove 1 Minute Serum Conditioner is infused with the transformative power of serum capsules, rebuilds broken bonds in the hair’s internal structure with every use and smoothens away visible signs of damage.

This formula has the most concentrated level of micro-conditioning complex and moisturisation to give the ultimate nourishment & smoothness severely dry and damaged hair needs.

The new range of Dove 1 Minute Advanced Conditioners is now available at all Guardian and Watsons outlets with retails price:

  • The Dove 1 Minute Foam Conditioner- RM21.20

SHERIDAN Re-enters Malaysia With Stylish and Luxurious Spring Summer Collection

It is good to have this Stylish, Elegant and Luxurious Brand to Malaysian market!

IMG_20190801_103316

Sheridan, one of Australia’s most loved and coveted bed and bath brands, makes a stylish re-entry into the Malaysian market with the launch of its luxurious Spring Summer 2019 collection at its flagship counter at Parkson Elite Pavilion.

IMG_20190801_122831

Already making waves around the world, the new collection features a nature-inspired seasonal palette which draws inspiration from Australia’s signature natural surrounds, and sun-soaked days by the beach.

Photo 1 (15)

At its newly-renovated flagship counter at Parkson Elite Pavilion, Sheridan showcased its latest collection as part of the larger “Make Tomorrow Beautiful” campaign.

Through this launch, Sheridan re-affirmed its commitment to the environment and its desire to make tomorrow beautiful, not only by creating beautiful products, but also by choosing sustainable materials and environmentally friendly manufacturing processes.

Speaking at the launch, Sheridan Group General Manager, Mr Paul Gould, said that while artistry and quality have always been synonymous with the brand since its founding over 50 years ago, sustainability is also a key tenet of its identity. In fact, Sheridan’s founder, Claudio Alcorso, not only had a vision to introduce creative thought and beauty into the everyday things of life, he was also a passionate environmentalist.

With that in mind, Sheridan launched its campaign to Make Tomorrow Beautiful – not only by bringing artistry and craft into day-to-day life, but by creating long-lasting, quality products that are produced in an environmentally sustainable manner.

Mr Gould explained that with Sheridan products, customers can sleep easy knowing that they have done something good for the planet, because more than the luxurious fabrics, high thread counts, and soothing artistry, these products were made with the goal of minimizing environmental impact.

Luxurious and long-lasting products

For instance, Sheridan uses only superior long-staple cotton, which, as its name suggests, has been cultivated to have very long fibres. Fabric woven from these fibres is more durable, less prone to pilling, and possesses a softer touch. This means that these sheets can be used for a long time, rather than being replaced after just one or two years of use.
A prime example of the quality of Sheridan’s sheeting fabrics is the Palais range, which is an evergreen classic of enduring luxury. Spun from superior long-staple fibres in a lustrous sateen weave which creates luxuriously soft next-to-skin comfort, these 1,200 thread count sheets also feature a close weave that yields a silky yet durable fabric. The pillow cases and duvet covers are trimmed with Palais’ trademark triple-stitched embroidery, available in a range of designer colours.

Environmental sustainability

Chief amongst its efforts to be environmentally sustainable is the use of fibres and products that minimize environmental impact. For instance, Sheridan uses renewable fibres, like organic cotton and Tencel™. Sheridan’s Organic Cotton collection uses 100% Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified organic cotton and will be available in Malaysia by October 2019. It comprises fitted sheets, pillow cases, and hand and bath towels, and in continuing its sustainability goals, the fitted sheets and pillow cases come in reusable matching cotton bags.

In addition, Sheridan also uses Tencel™, which is a renewable and innovative cellulosic fibre that leave no trace in nature. This season, Tencel™ is available in the Sanderling bed, which features a botanical jacquard weave made from Tencel Lyocell and cotton blended fibres. This artwork was hand drawn in Sheridan’s design studio, and then interpreted into a weave by its master weaver.

At the same time, Sheridan is continually working towards removing all unnecessary packaging from its products. In the past 12 months, Sheridan has already eliminated 100 tonnes of cardboard from its packaging, and is working to ensure that by 2025, all of its packaging is recyclable or reusable.

Spring Summer 2019 – When beds become art

Turning to the Spring Summer 2019 collection, Mr Gould shared that the inspiration behind the collection was the idea of how we fill the summer days – languid, carefree days by the beach, sun-soaked afternoons in the great outdoors, and respite from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

True to the brand, Sheridan’s artists interpreted this inspiration through depictions of Australian flora and foliage, using a palette of warm neutrals, hues like coral, rose, wheat and gold, accented with natural greens and blues. All of the artwork that adorns the beds were created in-house by Sheridan’s artists in its Sydney Design Studio. The result is a cohesive collection that soothes, calms and rejuvenates.

Some standouts include the Bellport bed, which features a watercolour print of a contemporary take on Australia’s signature natural surrounds. Rendered in coral, gold, and blue, it celebrates the change of seasons and co-ordinates well with this season’s accessories.

Another featured bed is the Atherton Plantation, which provided a rich counterpoint to the Bellport. Evocative of the inkiest campfire nights, Atherton features rich floral prints against a navy background.

Finally, Sheridan also presented a strong range of decorative accessories, including throw cushions and bed covers rendered in a variety of materials, such as sheep fleece, silk, velvet, and linen, all in beautiful co-ordinating colours.

With such exquisite detailing, thoughtful touches, and conscious resourcing, sleep has never been more alluring. Sheridan’s Spring Summer 2019 collection of quality home products is now available at:

  • its flagship counter at Parkson Elite Pavillion
  • Parkson Elite Gurney (Penang)
  • Sogo KL
  • Isetan KLCC
  • Sogo Southkey (JB).

Prices

  • Palais – Fitted sheet from RM1,100
  • Organic Cotton – Fitted sheet from RM690
  • Sanderling – Bed set from RM2,180
  • Bellport – Bed set from RM2,700

More than just sales, it is part of our move to provide our users with an all-encompassing experience, and that includes the entertainment and gamification aspects both within and outside the platform.”

Rafe Haneef, Chief Executive Officer, CIMB Islamic Bank Berhad commented,

“SMEs represent a strong pillar of the Malaysian economy. As a leading regional Islamic bank, CIMB Islamic is pleased to support and empower SMEs to grow within and beyond Malaysia, particularly through the CIMB Halal Corridor initiative. And now, with Malaysian SMEs like SimplySiti on Shopee’s powerful omnichannel platform, coupled with great discounts and offers for CIMB cardholders, consumers are the ultimate winners in terms of quality products and convenience.

One Doc Medical Unveils Next Generation Picosecond Laser Technology

It is known as the world’s fastest eraser laser for Asian skin.

intoduce pico-01

Award-winning Laser Treatment and Aesthetic Centre, One Doc Medical (One Doc), celebrated its third anniversary with the unveiling of the revolutionary PICOCARE laser by WONTECH, South Korea’s leader in laser and aesthetic devices.

This partnership solidified One Doc as the centre with the largest number of Pico Laser devices in Malaysia.

The collaboration places a “PICOCARE 450” device in every one of One Doc’s current 12 outlets and any future outlets to come. To commemorate, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between One Doc Medical Co-founders Dr. Terrence Teoh and Dr. Michael Ong, and WONTECH Principles Ms. Genie Jung and Mr. Isaac Jang.

The world’s most advanced, innovative and US-FDA approved super-speed laser treatment for skin imperfections uses Picosecond technology that delivers ultra-short bursts of energy to the skin in picoseconds – trillionths of a second; that’s almost instantaneous! Patients can immediately experience a difference in skin quality and appearance.

WONTECH’s Overseas Sales Division Director, Genie Jung, assured that dramatic results can be achieved with lesser treatment sessions, lower costs, minimal discomfort and downtime, faster recovery and it is almost pain free.

“PICOCARE is known as the new gold standard of lasers with the “450 picosecond (ps) pulse duration” hallmark, making it the fastest laser that yields results in one session that traditional lasers achieve in three,” she added.

“Its superior performance makes it the most powerful, non-ablative laser for pigmentation that’s especially effective in treating the most common Asian skin problems – acne, pigmentation and aging skin,” said One Doc Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Michael Ong.

TREATMENT FOR:

One Doc Pico Laser treatment uses the non-surgical, non-invasive PICOCARE laser specifically for the treatment of:

  • Melasma
  • Sun damage
  • Freckles & age spots
  • Acne & acne scars
  • Uneven skin tone & dark patches
  • Poor skin texture
  • Fine lines, wrinkles & enlarged pores

WHAT TO EXPECT

Unusual amongst all other Pico lasers, PICOCARE 450 offers six different hand pieces for targeted therapies – the most powerful being the HEXA Laser Induced Optical Breakdown (LIOB). Generating LIOBs at 450ps pulse duration, the intense impact created shatters target skin pigment particles (discolouration) which the body easily eliminates. The body’s natural healing response triggers collagen production. After recovery, skin will see exceptional improvements in skin elasticity, pigmentation and enlarged pores.

Patients only feel mild to no discomfort during treatment as the laser is gentle to the skin’s outer layer, causing no burn or damage. Slight pinpricks may be noticed, but this varies depending on pain tolerance. Minimal skin redness (pinkish) may be experienced for less than 3 days.

One Doc Executive Director, Dr. Terrence Teoh, advises patients that a minimum of 4 treatments about 3-4 weeks apart are required for best results.

“This treatment is highly recommended for those struggling with severe acne or hyperpigmentation, who are actively seeking a solution that caters to their busy lifestyle and preference for low social downtime,” he added.

One Doc offers multiple One Doc Pico Laser treatment packages to suit different skin conditions. Suitable treatments for specific skin issues will be recommended after a brief consultation.

This is the right time to experience the journey to FLAWLESS, RADIANT SKIN IS JUST PICOSECONDS AWAY.

SAY GOODBYE TO ACNE, DARK SPOTS

AND AGING SKIN.

Four Finalist Selected for GUARDIAN Are You ‘The Face of Healthy Beauty’ 3rd Semi Finals

16 Finalist have been chosen so far for the Guardian Malaysia ARE YOU ‘THE FACE OF HEALTHY BEAUTY’.

All 25 semi-finalists posing on stage

After a hard-fought semi-finals where each of the 25 shortlisted semi-finalists had to go through challenges that display their aptitude and personality to deservedly earn the title ‘The Face of Healthy Beauty’, four finalists emerged to progress to the Grand Finals to be held in Kuala Lumpur on 27 July 2019.

Four finalists from the central region. (From left) Karyll Chee, Alwizah Al Yafii, Nurul Ezzaty, and Nur Aimi

The FOUR finalists from the Central region were:

1. Alwizah Al Yafii Binti Ahmad Kamal
2. Karyll Chee Kar-Yee
3. Nur Aimi Binti Abdul Ghani
4. Nurul Ezzaty Binti Hasbullah

Lawyer and mother of two teenage boys, Alwizah Al Yafii Binti Ahmad Kamal, 45, from Kuala Lumpur, was very happy and very surprised to be picked as a finalist.

“I really thought I did not stand a chance against such an accomplished group of semi-finalists who were so beautiful, so young, so confident with so much energy, from different walks of life and who mostly held professional jobs. So this win was really unexpected for me and I still can’t believe it. I’m so happy,” she said.

Alwizah said she wasn’t a ‘pageant’ person but she was a firm believer on being healthy especially now when women say they don’t have time to keep healthy because of work commitments.

“I want to be an ambassador for health and beauty because this is my passion,” she added.

Alwizah who counts Tun Mahathir as her idol says like Tun she wants to keep on working until she is in her nineties so keeping healthy is very important. And being the oldest semi-finalist in the Central region she feels she is on her way to achieving that goal.

Alwizah who didn’t have time to prepare for the contest due to her busy work schedule and mundane duties as a mother also said that she applauded Guardian for conducting this search because it shows that the ordinary women such as young working mothers and working women can be healthy and beautiful as well.

“We are not superstars, movie stars or celebrities. We want to show that we are normal women with normal problems and yet we can strive to be healthy and beautiful at the same time.”

More personal details on these first four finalists can be found on the contest microsite at https://theface.guardian.com.my.

The last semi-finals will be held in Kota Kinabalu Sabah on 7 July.

At the launch of this nation-wide search in May this year, Soren Lauridsen, CEO, South East Asia, Guardian Health And Beauty Sdn Bhd said:

“This search for The Face of Healthy Beauty is NOT a Beauty contest. In our books, the Healthy Beauty, is a person who lives life to the fullest in a healthy way, and has a distinctive style and pleasant personality. She is someone with a positive attitude, gives priority to being healthy first; and looks after her physical beauty too.”

Each winner will:

  • sign a one-year contract as Guardian Brand Ambassador that comes with RM10,000 cash
  • RM10,000 Guardian vouchers
  • RM5,000 each for them to give to a charity organization of their choice
  • Will be featured on the Cover of Guardian’s Brand Catalogues and other collaterals and will receive products from participating sponsors

Soren explains that the Healthy Beauty concept is at the core of Guardian’s brand philosophy and that this concept was borne from a consumer insight that good health is the foundation of true beauty.

“We discovered that our customers believe that true beauty comes from a healthy physical and mental state of being,” Soren said.

By focusing on this consumer need since its very first store at The Weld 52 years ago, Guardian, has become the store to go to for health and beauty needs.

He said:

“While these basic needs have remained, consumption trends have evolved driven by changing lifestyles and economic circumstances. Health and beauty are no longer as clearly defined as they used to be. They have been intertwined. Guardian too, has evolved. From being the health and beauty store, our mission now is to inspire our customers to live a healthy and beautiful life.”

“To achieve our mission, we have trained our team members to be beauty and health care advisors, while continuing to offer the latest and most innovative health and beauty products,” Soren added.

Touted as the first-of-its-kind in Malaysia, this search for ‘The Face of Healthy Beauty’ is open to all Malaysian females aged 18 years and above. Entries were submitted online at https://theface.guardian.com.my.

Participants needed to upload a 30 second video of themselves indicating ‘Why they want to be The Face of Healthy Beauty?’ or write in not more than 100 words why they want to be The Face of Healthy Beauty.

One hundred (100) shortlisted participants will be selected to attend each semi-final to be held at Johor Bahru City Square, Gurney Plaza Penang, Central i-City Mall Shah Alam and 1Borneo Hypermall Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. Four semi-finalists from each region will attend the Grand Finals in Shah Alam on 27 July 2019.

In addition to the four winners, there will be eight category winners to be awarded by sponsors. These are: Most Healthy (Blackmores), Most Elegant (Bio-essence), Most Youthful (Garnier), Most Expressive Eyes (L’Oréal), Most Passionate (Maybelline), Most Confident (Nivea), Most Cheerful (Safi) and Most Charming (TRESemmé)

Guardian customers can also vote, from 8 July – 24 July 2019 on the microsite, for their favourite finalist to win at the Grand Finals. The votes received for each finalist will contribute towards 50% of the total scores at the Grand Finals. Customers can earn more votes with purchases at Guardian. For one vote, no purchase is required; for 5 Votes, they need to purchase any item from Guardian and for 10 Votes, they need to purchase any participating sponsor brands in a single receipt.

If that particular contestant wins in the Grand Finals, then she will do a draw to pick her lucky voter. A total 4 draws will be done. Each Winner will pick 1 voter. The selected voter will be rewarded with RM500 worth of Guardian vouchers.

Furthermore, there is also a Scan & Win contest for customers from 10 June to 7 July 2019. QR codes will be placed in Guardian stores for customers to scan.
