The Get Up Kids is Back to Rock Malaysia!

Kuala Lumpur, 8 August 2019 – Legends are those who inspire others to follow in their footsteps and move further in that pathway. That is who the The Get Up Kids are to other younger bands – a group of regular guys from Kansas City, who have helped shape the emo, indie and alternative rock music genre, otherwise known as the “second wave” of emo music. It has been three years since the last time the American rock band was in Malaysia and The Bee will be hosting them once again for another round of their unique blend of alternative rock and pop punk for us!

Setting in place the norms for 21st Century emo music, The Get Up Kids is reputable for their punk scene with emo influence in the mid-1990s. With several popular albums to their name, such as ‘Something to Write Home About’, ‘On a Wire’ and ‘There are Rules’, the band created a huge impact on the ‘adult emo’ scene especially with the release of their first reunion album in 2011 titled ‘Kicker’.

 

Gaining popularity in the early 2000s, The Get Up Kids performed with renown bands such as Green Day. Weezer, Hot Rod Circuit, The Anniversary and many more while touring Japan, Europe and Australia for three years. The Get Up Kids are also known as the founders of the Heroes and Villians Records, a platform for several side projects like The New Amsterdams and Reggie and the Full Effect.

The World’s First Starbucks Signing Store Celebrates Three Years of Silent Brewing

Starbucks Deaf Partners Successfully Achieved Their Advanced Coffee Masters Certification

Kuala Lumpur, 25 July 2019 – Celebrating its third anniversary, the world’s first Starbucks Signing Store located in Bangsar Village II is commemorating this milestone by showcasing the passion and growth of their Deaf partners, who have now achieved the certification of Advanced Coffee Masters, an achievement that further develops their barista skills and coffee knowledge.

“At Starbucks we always endeavor to create a culture of diversity and inclusion. This was how the concept of the Signing Store came about more than three years ago by offering the Deaf and hard of hearing community in Malaysia with employment and career advancement opportunities. Today, we further recognize our Deaf partners (employees), who are also all certified Coffee Masters, with the progress they have achieved in completing their Advanced Coffee Master program. Our deaf partners have come so far in achieving this certification through hard work and determination,” said Rina Siew, Corporate Social Responsibility Manager for Starbucks Malaysia and Brunei.

Leaning into growth opportunities at Starbucks, the Advanced Coffee Masters Program teaches qualified baristas new coffee mastery skills for different coffee equipment. Thus, the newly-certified Deaf Advanced Coffee Masters are able to brew coffee using the Pour Over method. In addition, these Deaf baristas are also qualified to conduct coffee chat sessions with the public using sign language much like the baristas at the Starbucks Reserve™ stores in Malaysia. Throughout these three years, the Starbucks Signing Store advocates continuous learning and development of each barista.

SHOPEE SAHUT SERUAN UNTUK KURANGKAN KOS SARA HIDUP DENGAN 9.9 SUPER SHOPPING DAY

SHOPEE SAHUT SERUAN UNTUK KURANGKAN KOS SARA HIDUP DENGAN 9.9 SUPER SHOPPING DAY

Kempen membeli-belah tahunan utama Shopee tawarkan penghantaran percuma dengan perbelanjaan minimum RM9; umumkan Cristiano Ronaldo sebagai duta jenama terbaru

KUALA LUMPUR, 16 Ogos 2019 – Dalam tempoh setahun lepas, pihak kerajaan telah melancarkan beberapa inisiatif untuk mengurangkan kos sara hidup di Malaysia. Satu inisiatif yang dilaksanakan baru-baru ini ialah penubuhan Jawatankuasa Tindakan Kebangsaan E-dagang oleh Majlis Tindakan Kos Sara Hidup Negara. Matlamatnya adalah untuk menggalakkan dan mengukuhkan penggunaan e-dagang lantas mengenepikan peranan orang tengah dalam usaha mengurangkan kos barangan pengguna.

Untuk mencapai matlamat ini, pihak kerajaan telah bekerjasama rapat dengan Shopee, platform e-dagang yang terkemuka di Asia Tenggara dan Taiwan, dalam usaha mencari cara untuk mengurangkan kos sara hidup bagi rakyat Malaysia. Salah satu daripada usaha Shopee untuk berganding bahu dengan para peniaga runcit Malaysia adalah mengurangkan sekatan terhadap penglibatan umum dalam ekonomi digital. Tambahan lagi, kos mengendalikan perniagaan di dalam talian jauh lebih rendah. Dengan ini, Shopee menggalakkan para peniaga runcit untuk berkongsi penjimatan kos dengan pembeli, lantas menjadikan beli-belah dalam talian lebih termampu bagi pengguna. Hasilnya, pengguna dapat melihat purata penjimatan sebanyak 20% untuk barangan keperluan harian apabila mereka membeli-belah di Shopee pada hari biasa, dengan potensi penjimatan sehingga 90% semasa kempen membeli-belah utama seperti 9.9 Super Shopping Day.

Akan berlangsung dari 19 Ogos hingga 9 September 2019, kempen ini membawakan tawaran dan diskaun hebat meliputi pelbagai kategori daripada jenama seperti Nutox, HP, L’Oréal, Vinda, Photobook Malaysia, Enfagrow, Universal Traveller, realme, Mr DIY dan Nestle. Untuk terus mendorong penggunaan e-dagang dan menggalakkan rakyat Malaysia memanfaatkan penjimatan ini, Shopee akan menurunkan perbelanjaan minimum untuk penghantaran percuma kepada RM9.

Mengalu-alukan inisiatif itu, Song Hock Koon, Pengarah E-Dagang, Perbadanan Ekonomi Digital Malaysia, berkata, “Salah satu objektif MDEC adalah untuk menggalakkan penglibtatan rakyat Malaysia dalam ekosistem digital kerana inisiatif sedemikian akan membantu mempercepatkan penggunaan e-dagang dalam keadaan yang mampan dan kos efektif. Kami sentiasa berbesar hati untuk bekerjasama dan menyokong pergerakan industri dan mempercayai bahawa inisiatif terbaru ini akan memberi inspirasi kepada usaha keusahawanan digital.”

Dove Introduces its First Customised Range of 1 Minute Advanced Conditioners in Malaysia

Dove Introduces its First Customised Range of 1 Minute Advanced Conditioners in Malaysia

Kuala Lumpur, 15th August 2019 — In recent times, there has been a growing demand from consumers for brands to develop customised solutions for different hair types in order to attain beautifully nourished hair. Noticing this climate in the beauty industry, Dove as one of the world’s leading personal care brands, 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. The 1 Advanced Minute range consists of the Dove 1 Minute Foam Conditioner, Dove 1 Minute Milk Gel Conditioner, and 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.

Dove’s first customised range of 1 Minute Advanced Conditioners

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.

Introduction to Dove 1 Minute Advanced Conditioners by John Goh, Dove R&D Deploy Manager Home & Personal Care

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.

[L-R] Chloe Meng (Dove Senior Brand Manager), Natalie Goh (Hair Care Marketing Manager), John Goh (Dove R&D Deploy Manager Home & Personal Care)

“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.
