Yngwie (sebutannya “ING-vay”) Malmsteen, atau nama sebenarnya, Lars Johann Yngve Lannerback yang lahir pada 30 Jun 1963, ialah seorang gitaris ternama dari Stockholm, Sweden. Kehebatannya bermain gitar dengan menggabungkan elemen muzik klasik dengan kelajuan dan kelantangan muzik ‘heavy metal’ menjadikan beliau antara pujaan peminat rock pada era 80-an.
Dipengaruhi oleh muzik penggubah klasik seperti Bach, Paganini dan Vivaldi, Yngwie bertanggungjawab memperkenalkan genre neo-klasik kepada dunia rock – hasil gabungan antara bunyi gitar elektrik kegemarannya dengan karya melodi muzik klasik baroque.
Album sulung instrumental beliau yang diterbitkan pada tahun 1984 berjudul ‘Rising Force’, menjadi inspirasi di kalangan gitaris ‘hard rock’ dan juga pemangkin bagi fenomena gitar pada zaman ‘80an yang dikenali sebagai “shredding,” di mana focus utama muzik adalah petikan gitar secara pantas menggunakan teknik berbanding penulisan lagu. Album ‘Rising Force’ beliau berjaya memenangi anugerah Album Rock Terbaik oleh Majalah Guitar Player dan memperoleh pencalonan anugerah Grammy bagi ‘Persembahan Rock Instrumental Terbaik’, serta turut berada di tangga ke-60 dalam carta album Billboard.
Pada tahun 2009, majalah Time mengiktiraf Malmsteen sebagai antara 10 pemain gitar terbaik dunia sepanjang masa, di samping lagenda-lagenda seperti Jimi Hendrix, Slash dan Prince.
Beliau turut menerbitkan sebuah buku bertajuk “Relentless: The Memoir” pada tahun 2013, di mana beliau berkongsi sedikit sebanyak tentang hal peribadinya, dari saat kemunculan beliau di atas pentas muzik pada awal ’80an sehingga terpateri nama beliau dalam sejarah ‘heavy metal’.
Sehingga ke hari ini, beliau masih terus menjadi lagenda di kalangan gitaris dengan jualan album mencecah ribuan unit dan konsert laris di seluruh dunia serta turut mempengaruhi generasi rock seterusnya.
Malmsteen muncul dengan album terkininya, “World On Fire” pada bulan Jun 2016 dan telah berjaya melengkapkan pusingan kedua bagi konsert jelajah Amerika Syarikat 2017 beliau.
Para peminat gitar virtouso ini amat bertuah kerana pada 29 September 2018 jam 8.00 malam, Yngwie bakal beraksi buat pertama kalinya di Malaysia bertempat di Dewan Wawasan, Menara PGRM Kuala Lumpur. Pastinya “all time hits” seperti Far Beyong The Sun, Blackstar, Dreaming, Rising Force, Heaven Tonight, Save Our Love dan banyak lagi akan berkumandang di PGRM. Konsert hebat ini dibawakan khas oleh RSVP dan Lampu Neon sebagai promoter. Jumpa di sana!!

KUALA LUMPUR, 28 August 2018 – WONDA Coffee is celebrating its annual IWCD (International WONDA Coffee Day) on a bigger and better scale by bringing more WONDA-ful surprises to its fans. This year, WONDA Coffee has teamed up with MRT Corp (Mass Rapid Transit Corporation Sdn Bhd) to offer passengers a free ride to their chosen destination.
In the quest of delighting coffee loyalists and supporters everywhere, the premium ready-to-drink (RTD) coffee brand is taking it a step further to bring its creative WONDA Lane concept to MRT for the first time.
This exciting activation follows the coffee brand’s IWCD WONDA Lane campaign last year when they partnered with New Pantai Expressway (NPE) Highway. The collaboration saw WONDA Coffee treating passengers to a free pass through a special WONDA Lane along NPE toll.
Following last year’s success of WONDA Lane, WONDA Coffee is shifting its gear in adopting
their creative concept from toll to public transportation for those commuting. The WONDA Lane experience this year will involve WONDA Coffee occupying two turnstiles at Bandar Utama MRT Station. On top of that, WONDA Coffee is also the FIRST brand in Malaysia to execute this creative activation at MRT.
From 28th – 29th August between 7.30am – 7.30pm at Bandar Utama MRT Station, WONDA coffee supporters can head to Gate B through the linkway to 1 Utama Shopping Centre to experience the excitement. As WONDA Coffee is as an on-the-go product, MRT commuters need not to worry at all. For two days, MRT riders will simply need to show any WONDA Coffee product (240ml can / 200ml pack / 340ml bottle) – as a form of currency to the brand’s booth for a free ride. They will then be directed to a dedicated ticketing machine at the station where WONDA Coffee representatives will queue and help obtain free tickets on their behalf. Riders can then enjoy walking through one out of the two WONDA Lane turnstiles accordingly.
In order to ensure that everyone has a fair and memorable experience, each customer is entitled to only ONE free ride per day valid one-way. This exciting promotion also operates through a first-come-first-serve basis and is strictly limited to the first 3,000 passengers per day.
“Each year, WONDA Coffee promises to continue in bringing a bigger and better IWCD celebration to coffee enthusiasts, everywhere. This year, we decided to partner with MRT to create a unique experience through WONDA Lane for our consumers in order to brighten up their journey”, said Santharuban T. Sundaram, Vice President of Marketing at Etika Sdn Bhd.
Santharuban added, “Given the connection between morning coffee and the mad rush to work we felt that this would be an engagement with commuters. It is also a great way to encourage and promote coffee lovers to try the “just brewed taste” and delicious variants that WONDA Coffee has to offer through this engagement”.
WONDA Coffee is also running a simple and fun Instagram photo contest “Peraduan
#wefiekopiwonda” which has started on 28th August and will end on 2nd September where fans can stand a chance to win a RM10,000 cash prize.

Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and Tun Dr. Siti Hasmah’s LEGO mural is the highlight of the exhibition, beginning today to Sunday, 2 September 2018 at LG2, Central Avenue, Sunway Pyramid.
18 unique LEGO mosaics will also be on display, featuring interesting Malaysian moments, culture and sceneries, coupled with LEGO-themed activities for visitors by Carousell. LEGO fans can also connect with LEGO collectors across Malaysia on Carousell.
“The LEGO builders and fans have long traded and exchanged ideas via our platform and we in turn focus on creating authentic relationships with our communities. Naturally, Merdeka is the perfect opportunity for us to engage the LEGO fan community while celebrating 61 years of independence which highlights their creativity,” said Tang Siew Wai, Country Head of Carousell Malaysia.
Siew Wai added that hobbyists and enthusiasts could buy exclusive LEGO collections on Carousell. “To date, we have approximately 1 million LEGO listings on Carousell. This includes exquisite and scarce pieces of LEGO items to suit the user’s needs.”
“Sunway Pyramid has always been a strong supporter of the creative arts, advocating a variant of artists to display their pieces in our mall. Our collaboration with Carousell and ROB is part of our continuous efforts to offer a variety of activities to our shoppers especially on this very significant Merdeka celebration,” said Amy Hoo Ooi Mei, Senior Manager – Marketing of Sunway Pyramid.
“Matching different LEGO pieces to build this mural resembles the diversification of our culture and races living together in peace and harmony. The murals were built by artists from ROB to convey our love for our country and promote creativity with bricks. Carousell and Sunway Pyramid have been supportive partners in developing the community, and we hope that through this initiative, more will follow suit and develop their interest by joining our LEGO community on Carousell,” said Zen Chan Yang Shan, President of ROB.
A total of 166,888 pieces of LEGO bricks were used for the portraits displayed at the event, with 9,216 pieces used for Tun M and Tun Siti’s mural which was built by members of ROB.
