GIANT Brings Students On A Journey to National Museum

30 underprivileged students from Sekolah Kebangsaan Jalan Hang Tuah 1 are taken to the National Museum of Malaysia for a tour with the aim to help the younger generations understand the true meaning of independence and the sacrifices involved in the formation of Malaysia.

Giant has been present in Malaysia for more than 75 years. Regardless of age, race, religion, and social standing, the love for the Giant brand is fondly engraved in the hearts of many Malaysians since childhood.

As one of the oldest retail chains in Malaysia, Giant plays an important role in raising awareness of the importance of unity and instilling an appreciation for the struggle of our nation’s forefathers for independence in the younger generation.

This initiative is aligned with Giant’s mission to contribute to the development of the nation by inspiring Malaysian children with the spirit of patriotism and impressing a sense of national pride in the hearts of the children.

The students were able to witness the extensive collection of artifacts, crafts, and historical monuments being displayed in the museum that portrays Malaysia’s major historical events and cultural activities. It is great to see the children taking pride in the rich history, diversity, and culture of our beloved nation.

In conjunction with this year’s Malaysia Day celebration, Giant Malaysia continues providing bigger variety and greater value to the nation with the selected second item at 50 percent off promotion, happening until 18 September 2019 at all Giant stores throughout Peninsular Malaysia.

The PowerShot G5 X Mark II and PowerShot G7 X Mark III boast:

  • a 20.1MP, 1-inch stacked CMOS sensor
  • a wide aperture of f/1.8- f/2.8 with a good optical zoom of 5X (PowerShot G5 X Mark II) and 4.2x (PowerShot G7 X Mark III)
  • Canon’s pioneering DIGIC 8 processor in their compact bodies to offer DSLR-like creative expression in both stills and uncropped 4K videos

“Canon’s latest PowerShot G series offers upgraded features that improve cameras’ performance, to deliver on all levels so that users have the freedom to express themselves in any scenario.” said Albert Mah, Head of Imaging Communication Products Division, Canon Marketing Malaysia.

PowerShot G5 X Mark II and PowerShot G7 X Mark III

  • Superb Image Quality in Any Situation

Powered by Canon’s DIGIC 8 Processor, the key highlight of the two cameras is its 1-inch stacked CMOS sensor, which is larger than sensors typically found in compact cameras. This enhances the cameras’ performance with faster autofocus to produce crisp, clear shots in almost any light.

With a newly designed f/1.8- 2.8 lens with 24-120mm focal range which provides a 5x zoom (the PowerShot G7 X Mark III has 24-100mm focal range, giving 4.2x zoom), the PowerShot G5 X Mark II is poised to handle anything from shooting portraits to macro close-ups of 0.47x magnification and is excellent for creating shallow depth of field effects.

  • Fast, Confident Shooting

One major challenge of shooting fast-moving subjects is capturing that one perfect frame when the subject is in focus and in the desired position. Now, you can shoot boldly with the PowerShot G5 X Mark II and PowerShot G7 X Mark III. Its pre-shoot setting will start shooting at 0.5 seconds before you even press the shutter release button. Hence, the moment will still be captured even if you press the shutter button a split second later. Photographs can be taken at a high speed of 30 shots per second in RAW burst mode (and 20fps in jpeg), making sure you miss nothing, especially if you are capturing jump shots or your child blowing out candles on a birthday cake.

Both cameras include a panoramic mode, activated by a simple push of a button. With horizontal or vertical panning, you can easily capture panoramic shots with amazing details in high quality.

  • Create Movies in Stunning Definition

Both PowerShot G5 X Mark II and PowerShot G7 X Mark III lets users capture 4K movies without crop, allowing you to take full advantage of your lenses to shoot landscape videos.

With 4K movies recorded in motion JPEG, frame grabs are possible, allowing users to review footage and at any given point, extract a moment from the video and save it as a high-quality 8MP JPEG on the camera.

With a tilting LCD on both cameras, you can shoot from different angles, from the ground up, or from high angles to create videos with a unique point of view.

  • Intuitive Features and Ergonomic Handling

With their highly pocket-friendly dimensions and ergonomic design, both the PowerShot G5 X Mark II and PowerShot G7 X Mark III can easily fit into a slip-pocket in your bag, which makes them ideal choice for lifestyle users looking for an all-in-one camera for everyday use.

The PowerShot G7 X Mark III comes in two colours- black and silver. Users familiar with Canon’s EOS cameras would appreciate both cameras’ operation and intuitive control features, which has been upgraded from the existing compact digital camera’s user interface.

  • Versatile Charging and Advanced Connectivity

Both the PowerShot G5 X Mark II and PowerShot G7 X Mark III are capable of USB charging which makes it more convenient for users on the go.

The PowerShot G5 X Mark II and PowerShot G7 X Mark III are packed with connectivity features, such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), to effortlessly connect with compatible smart devices with one single tap and switch seamlessly between Wi-Fi and BLE. Users can use the Canon Camera Connect app to perform network-related features.

Availability

  • The Canon PowerShot G5 X Mark II is available in black colour and retailed at RM3,599
  • Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III is available in both black and silver colours and retailed at RM2,999

Both models are available at all Canon authorized dealers nationwide.

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.

Group Photo_ WH_WF

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.

Autumn Retreat Brings Laughter and Joy at Sunway Velocity Mall

From 21st August to 13th September, Sunway Velocity Mall held its annual Mid-Autumn Festival campaign, ‘An Autumn Retreat’.

Head over to Sunway Velocity Mall to shop for mooncake from a wide selection of traditional baked mooncakes to snow skin mooncakes and even ice cream mooncakes in over 20 vendors.

The Main Atrium of the mall was fully embellished with yellow and golden hues to resemble the bright, round moon for this festival. The atrium was also furnished with elements of Mid-Autumn such as lanterns and bamboo to replicate the vibe of a traditional Chinese market.

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.

Thus, Sunway Velocity Mall organised the ‘An Autumn Retreat’ in hopes to bring families and friends together through the many exciting activities and fun workshops as well as various mooncake vendors that are gathered for this campaign.

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. From the selection of traditional baked mooncakes to snow skin mooncakes and even ice cream mooncakes, there are endless options to choose from. 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. Shoppers who a spend a minimum of RM 600 in four (4) receipts or RM 500 for HSBC Credit Cardholders can redeem an exclusive Tea Set. For shoppers who spend RM 2,000 over five (5) receipts, or RM 1,900 for HSBC Credit Cardholders will be able to redeem a classic Cosas United Luggage bag. 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. Sunway Velocity Mall strives to create memorable experiences for the community though innovative and unique touch-points during the festive season. From starling redemption prizes to fun and exciting activities, plus beautiful and Instagram-worthy decorations in the mall, make sure you visit Sunway Velocity Mall for your “Autumn Retreat.”

Kids Go Cashless at KidZania With T&G Ewallet

This is a good initiative as it can promote financial literacy among Malaysian kids 

Photo 2 (9)

The initiative happens following the latest partnership with TNG Digital Sdn Bhd, making it the first of its kind among its KidZania franchise.

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.
