img_20190123_182133

The entire mall has been transformed into a magnificent Mandarin orange garden with a theme “Abundance of Prosperity”. Besides Mandarin oranges, the red lanterns that hang around the garden signify fortune, wealth and abundance. The decoration depicts a garden in a traditional Chinese courtyard house.

Mandarin orange has a deep symbolic meaning as it sounds similar to the word “gold” in Chinese culture and it also represent good luck. Having Mandarin  oranges at home, office and shops during Chinese New Year is said to bring riches into your life and Suria KLCC would like to share these positive vibes with shoppers and visitors during this festive celebration.

“Traditionally, giving Mandarin oranges during Chinese New Year indicates a sense of good fortune and the colour of Mandarin oranges also symbolises “gold” making it significant to be presence at anywhere during the festive period. The Cantonese pronunciation of giving Mandarin oranges-Somg Kam” is the same as “giving gold”, therefore it signifies wishing prosperity upon the recipient. The Lunar New Year celebration is also about family and we appreciate the traditional values that come with it. It reminds us of our roots and family is an irreplaceable wealth. For this, Suria KLCC wants you to come home and celebrate a season full of love and warmth this CNY.” said Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director, Andrew Brian at the launched of Suria KLCC‘s CNY campaign.

The auspicious CNY launched delighted mall shoppers, tourists and guests who were greeted by the God of Prosperity to welcome prosperity, longevity and happiness for 2019. The ceremony was followed by a Chinese traditional dance and a lion dance by an award-winning Kwong Ngai acrobatic Lion Dance Group. This troupe is the Overall Champion of the 2017 National Dragon and Lion Dance Championship.

Visitors also can soak up the festive atmosphere and capture the moments at various photo spots the mall has set up including outdoor at the KLCC Esplanade. Shoppers are in for a surprise to see a grand new 40ft height Basket of Mandarin oranges replica known as “Basket of Good Fortune”, welcoming shoppers and visitors.

A basket of full Mandarin oranges is an auspicious representation of wealth in all aspects of life which is an important element in CNY celebration. The replica will be displayed until 22 February 2019.

Suria KLCC also offers an array of performances-traditional dance. Lion Dance, Dragon dance and 10 Festive Drums throughout the campaign period.

A new member in Huawei Nova Series; Huawei Nova 4

Following its global launch in December, HUAWEI today launched the new HUAWEI Nova 4 to Malaysian consumers. Developed through a better understanding of consumer needs and current industry trends, the HUAWEI Nova 4 brings the innovative Punch FullView Display experience for the first time to Malaysian consumers, together with cutting-edge premium design and AI technology.

Running on Kirin 970 and 8GB RAM, the HUAWEI Nova 4 delivers the ultimate user experience on everything from productivity apps to high-octane action games. Shipped with EMUI 9.0, it allows users to access work and entertainment apps easily with a few simple taps and swipes.

“The HUAWEI Nova Series has always been about the pursuit of beauty and is designed to cater to the younger crowd who are fond of participating in trendy lifestyles.  Equipped with an improved photography experience and revolutionary AI technology, the HUAWEI Nova 4 embodies who our millennial consumes are,” said Luke Au, Product Marketing Director, HUAWEI Malaysia.

huawei-nova-4-malaysia-front-and-back

Echoing this sentiment, Hannah Delisha, HUAWEI Nova ambassador said, “As a part of the HUAWEI Nova family, it is very interesting to see how the Series has evolved over the years. With the HUAWEI Nova 4 and its AI-supported features such as Triple AI Camera, AI Smart Video Editing and AI Beautification, the smartphone continues to fit into my lifestyle with ease as I commute between photoshoots, drama sets and events. It has definitely become my new best friend.”

Level Up Your Photography Skills
The HUAWEI Nova 4 is equipped with the industry’s smallest 25MP under-display front camera, measuring 3.05mm in diameter, as well as a Triple AI Camera on the rear, featuring a high resolution 20MP primary camera, a 16MP ultra wide angle camera and a 2MP bokeh lens.

Following the HUAWEI P20 Pro and HUAWEI Mate 20 Series, the HUAWEI Nova 4 is HUAWEI’s first Nova product to feature a Triple AI Camera and ultra wide angle lens. This smartphone features a triple-camera module consisting of a 20MP primary camera and 2MP secondary camera, complemented with a 16MP camera augmented with ultra wide angle lens. The primary lens captures images with a high-end sensor whose pixel size is 1.0µm with better performance to capture the light. It also supports hardware-level background bokeh effect to highlight the subject, benefitted by the 2MP lens.

Equipped with an ultra wide angle lens, the 16MP camera supports a 117-degree field of view. After adjusting for distortion, its performance is equivalent to a 103-degree 17mm wide angle lens, capturing 2.4 times more information compared to 78-degree wide angle lens. Together, the 20MP high resolution camera and 16MP ultra wide angle lens makes the HUAWEI Nova 4 the perfect device for capturing endless plains or sprawling metropolis that stretch towards the horizon.

The Future of Displays: Punch FullView Display
Since the unveiling of the very first HUAWEI Nova Series, HUAWEI has never stopped in its pursuit of beauty. The HUAWEI Nova 4 sports a new generation 6.4-inch Punch FullView display – the first ever to be sold in Malaysia. A culmination of years of experience in premium design, craftsmanship and high technology, the Punch FullView display takes bezel-less displays to new heights with a minimalist blind hole opening for the 25MP camera. This design allows HUAWEI to eliminate the notch and achieve a screen-to-TP ratio of 91.8 percent, which makes for a truly natural and stunning viewing experience.

The 25MP front camera under the Punch FullView display is the industry’s smallest camera, measuring at only 3.05mm – 20 percent smaller than the current industry standard. The opening on the display is a blind hole, meaning the screen is not completely punched through. From assembly (sub-0.1mm margin of error) to adhesive application, the precise manufacturing processes minimise the light leakage from the edges of the blind hole. Additionally, HUAWEI optimised the light transmittance performance of the blind hole so it is on par to a through hole.

Artificial Intelligence Bolsters Video Editing and Gaming Support
The new HUAWEI Nova 4 fully utilises the hardware processing power and AI computation capacity of Kirin 970’s NPU to deliver a powerful and smart video editing experience. After taking a video with the HUAWEI Nova 4, users can activate the automatic footage analysis with one tap. This innovative feature leverages the smart aesthetics scoring engine. Trained with 60,000 basic models as well as one million facial models generated through facial recognition, the feature can automatically process
and edit footage.

Apart from that, the HUAWEI  Nova 4 also supports a new generation of GPU Turbo. This technology greatly enhances the graphics processing efficiency of smartphones by optimising the clock speed and power consumption of the chipset, allowing the HUAWEI Nova 4 to deliver an accelerated, top framerate experience even when running premium mobile games.

Furthermore, the GPU Turbo will serve as the foundation augmenting the core features of HUAWEI devices. It not only allows EMUI and application-layer graphics to run smoother, and supports nascent technologies such as AR and VR – it also endows the HUAWEI Nova 4 with limitless potential.

Pricing and Availability
Made for the youth, the HUAWEI Nova 4 is equipped with 128GB ROM and over-a-day 3,750mAh battery life. It is available in two fashionable colorways in Malaysia:

  • Crush Blue evokes a sense of mystery with a tinge of romance
  • Black exudes understated class.

Made available in Malaysia starting on 14th February 2019, the HUAWEI Nova 4 is retailing at a price of RM1,899.00 and can be purchased at all HUAWEI Experience Stores, display zones, authorised dealers and major telco companies.

Nova Academy
Also present at the launch event was Datuk Ahmad Izham Omar, CEO of Primeworks Studios, who announced a collaboration between HUAWEI, Primeworks Studios, and Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) on the Nova Academy. “Malaysia has an abundance of hidden gems and talented people especially in the entertainment industry, however, we don’t always get to tap onto their full potential.

The Nova Academy is an initiative to provide the right platform for our talents to get the education and in-depth training they need through a mentorship programme. I look forward to this exciting collaboration,” he said.

SHOPEE Wraps Up 12.12 With Over 12 million orders

Shopee, the leading e-commerce platform in Southeast Asia and Taiwan, wraps up a record-breaking year with its highly successful Shopee 12.12 Birthday Sale.

shopee-blackpink-_ratio-16x9

On 12 December, Shopee saw over 12 million orders across the region, surpassing all past records including the recent Shopee 11.11 Big Sale.

Supported by more than 450,000 brands and merchants, Shopee recorded 48 million visits as users shopped 60 million deals across all categories. Shopee’s in-app games were also highly popular like the Shopee Shake which was played 46 million times throughout the campaign.

In Malaysia, Health and Beauty, Home and Living, and Baby and Toys were the top three most popular categories. Leading brands, including Watsons, Nestle, Pet Pet, Realme and Petronas emerged as favourites amongst users.

Additionally, all tickets for Shopee’s Regional Brand Ambassador, BLACKPINK’s 2019 World Tour that went on sale were sold out in less than an hour, with 100 tickets snapped up within the first 30 seconds.

Malaysians grew up with Milo so it came as no surprise when the Nestle Milo Energy Cube became the top favourite, with raving reviews about its unique bite-size goodness. Additionally, people are getting more health conscious as they continue to maintain a balanced lifestyle. The Russell Taylors Air Fryer was a sought-after product to add to their kitchen essentials as a healthy alternative to fry food while another crowd-pleaser was the Xiaomi Mi Band 3 for wearers to track their fitness progress by recording their daily activities such as walking, sleep, heart rate and calories burnt. The old adage “an Apple a day keeps the doctor away” does ring true when iPhones became another attraction during the Shopee 12.12. Birthday Sale.

Ian Ho, Regional Managing Director, Shopee, said,

Shopee 12.12 Birthday Sale marks another significant milestone as we celebrate a year of exponential growth. This follows the success of Shopee 11.11 Big Sale in November and Shopee 9.9 Super Shopping Day in September. We are pleased to see the never ending support from our Shopee users, and to record around 16 million downloads in Malaysia is a huge achievement as we continue to be a leader in the e-commerce industry. A big thank you to our loyal users, sellers and partners for their continued support. It has been an exciting and fulfilling quarter for us as we surpass past records and set new benchmarks to reach next year. We look forward to having everyone join us in attaining even greater heights in 2019.”
