Gillette Venus Range Debuts in Malaysia and Reveals New Way to Smooth Skin


Gillette Venus also announces Farah Ann, Malaysian SEA Games artistic gymnastics gold medalist as its first local brand ambassador

KUALA LUMPUR, 20 November 2017 – Procter & Gamble today officially launched the number one-selling female razor brand in the world, Gillette Venus in Malaysia with the introduction of the Gillette Venus ComfortGlide White Tea razor. At the launch, Gillette Venus also announced its first local brand ambassador; the Malaysian SEA Games artistic gymnastics gold medalist, Farah Ann Abdul Hadi.

The Gillette Venus range of products now available in Malaysia, is created especially for women to attain smooth, longer lasting hair-free skin at home, at their convenience. The Gillette Venus ComfortGlide White Tea which was launched at the event, is designed with built-in moisture bars that have rich body butters and a fresh tropical scent with no shaving cream required. It features three curve-hugging blades for a close, comfortable shave even on sensitive skin. The ergonomic handle is made for a woman’s grip, and less likely to slip in the bath or shower where most women shave.

“Gillette Venus understands the importance of feeling good in one’s own smooth skin. The upkeep of a woman’s grooming routine can oftentimes be a lengthy, painful and expensive process. Keeping that in mind, Gillette Venus’ specially designed range of products including the Gillette Venus ComfortGlide White Tea is the solution for today’s modern-day women to help them achieve smooth skin in a convenient, painless and affordable way,” said Utkarsh Mohan, Shavecare Category Leader, P&G Malaysia, Singapore, Global Development Markets Asia and Vietnam at the launch event.


During the launch, Gillette Venus addressed the several common myths about hair removal which women all over the world believe to be true with a panel discussion.

“Sometimes we receive beauty advice and tips from friends and family without knowing if there is any real truth behind it. It may not be easy to identify fact from fiction with so many different and contradicting beliefs about hair removal. Hence, Gillette Venus is here to educate women in Malaysia on the misconceptions associated with hair removal methods,” Mohan added.


Sharing her thoughts in the panel discussion, brand ambassador Farah Ann mentioned that proper grooming from head to toe is important for her as a national gymnast and she has always followed a strict regime when it comes to taking care of her skin. “I don’t have to worry with Gillette Venus as its unique design ensures that the female razor is not harsh on the skin and leaves my skin feeling smooth and moisturized. To top it off, shaving is hassle free,” said Farah Ann.

Sharing her expertise on the topic, Dr. Yeow Hui Qian, aesthetic physician shared, “The majority of women have apprehensions with regards to shaving. They refrain from shaving as they believe that shaving will make their skin become darker or that their hair would grow faster and thicker. However, in reality hair growth is determined by one’s genetic and hormonal makeup.”

The Gillette Venus range of products are available for purchase at all leading retailers in Malaysia such as Tesco, Giant, AEON, AEON Big, Mydin, Watsons, Guardian and more. Please refer in-store for more details. All decisions on pricing, promotion, distribution, assortment and shelving are at the sole discretion of the retailer.

Huawei Holds the International Railway Summit to Accelerate Digital Railway Transformation with Leading New ICT

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, 16 November 2017 – The Fifth International Railway Summit is hosted by IRITS Events in association with the International Union of Railways (UIC) and Huawei Technologies. The event, taking place in Kuala Lumpur on 15-17 November 2017, attracted nearly 200 delegates from global vendors, industry leaders, rail operators and experts.


During the Summit, Huawei is showcasing its Digital Railway and Digital Urban Rail solutions, as well as end-to-end ICT solutions tailored to rail operational communication. Working with partners such as Jiaxun Feihong, Top Xingda, and Singapore’s ST Electronics, Huawei also displays the Railway IoT and Urban Rail Cloud solutions based on the latest cloud computing, Big Data, and the Internet of Things (IoT) technologies, as well as how these solutions drive the Digital Transformation of the rail sector.

On November 15, 40 global rail industry professionals had the opportunity to travel with Kuala Lumpur’s famous Light Rapid Transit, LRT Ampang Line and to visit its Operation and Control Center, OCC. The Ampang Line Extension project benefits from Huawei’s full suite of urban rail operational communication solutions. In this project, Huawei provided a fully integrated end-to-end communication solution and full-process delivery services leveraging its strong platform-based service capabilities and reliable products and solutions.
The Huawei-led Digital Railway Transformation session was held on November 16. Speakers from Malaysia’s Land Public Transport Commission (S.P.A.D.), the UIC, China Association of Metros, and Prasarana Malaysia Berhad shared their views on how digital technologies transform the rail industry.
Yuan Xilin, President of the Transport Sector of Huawei Enterprise Business Group, made an opening speech at the session. He commented: “Huawei provides innovative, differentiated, and advanced ICT hardware and software infrastructure to build reliable, open, elastic, and secure platforms. We cooperate with partners in the global railway industry providing customers from the rail sector with end-to-end solutions that pave the road for their Digital Transformations. New ICT technologies such as LTE-M open the doors to introduce revolutionary changes such as digital collaboration, urban rail cloud computing platforms, and Big Data analytics while maintaining protocols to ensure safe and reliable mission critical train to ground communications. These changes help improving passengers’ travel experience, enhance rail operational efficiency, ensure the public safety and the operational security at stations, and implement operational excellence, driving rail operators towards digital railways.”

Francis Bedel, Chief Digital Officer of the UIC, discussed challenges and opportunities for the rail industry during digital transformation. He commented: “Digital has rapidly become a strategic issue for rail and UIC Digital platform is there to support this development. Share, Open, Connect are our guidelines. One of our main ambitions is to initiate and enhance synergies between Rail sector and Digital ecosystem made of various actors such as start-ups, incubators and major companies as Huawei and others.”

Li Zhonghao, Deputy Director of the Technical Committee of China Association of Metros, said: “We witness increasingly wider application of LTE-M as an integrated train-to-ground bearer network in China’s urban rail industry. More than 50 lines have adopted LTE-M networks to carry services such as communication-based train control (CBTC), passenger information system (PIS)/closed-circuit television (CCTV), and voice trunking dispatching services. Smart urban rail cloud, based on network reconstruction, platform reconstruction, and Big Data technologies, has entered China’s urban rail market in recent years. We hope that the practice of LTE-M and urban rail cloud development in China can set a good example and clear industry trend for other regions around the world.”

Etienne Saclier D’Arquian, Head of ICS Networks Product Line, Thales Ground Transportation Systems, said: “With a significant legacy field equipment fleet to maintain, Railway operators will find IoT is a key enabler for cost savings, thanks to improved operational efficiency. Thales helps them reach this objective by combining proven transportation business expertise with best-in-class AI and versatile solutions such as Huawei’s, to build flexible, resilient and secure IoT services for predictive maintenance.”
Huawei is committed to the principle of “Openness, Cooperation, and Mutual Benefits” and comprehensive innovation with partners to provide end-to-end solutions and help customers in the rail transportation industry accelerate their digital transformation. To date, Huawei’s ICT service solution for railways has been delivered to more than 120,000 km rail lines of over 50 rail integrators and operators worldwide, including five of the global top 10 rail operators.

Sony Adds another High Class Walkman® to the ZX Series

Sony Adds another High Class Walkman® to the ZX Series

  • Walkman® NW-ZX300 in Black and Silver
  • High end sound with a balanced output
  • Compact size to use on the go
  • Sleek and premium design for a stylish sound

KUALA LUMPUR, 16 November 2017 – The iconic Walkman® is still very much alive and kicking with the NW-ZX300, Sony’s newest addition to the ZX Series. The ZX300 promises a premium quality and audio experience in an immaculately designed music player with balanced output realised by S-Master HX™ and a user interface made for and by music lovers.

Perfect for listening anywhere, its long battery life and slim thin and light design, this Walkman® is the perfect companion to listen to all of your favourite music wherever you are.

Premium sound experience
The ZX300 offers Hi-Res Audio with S-Master HX™ digital amplifier, newly soldered with high quality sound lead-free solder balls. Thanks to the capability of both 11.2MHz DSD native playback1 and 384kHz/32bit PCM playback, you can truly enjoy your music as the artist intended. The ZX300 also offers balanced standard connection with fully-discrete left and right channels for less noise and clearer sound.

For the premium listening experience, the ZX300 incorporates an aluminium chassis for less resistance value. The FTCAP (Conductive Polymer Aluminium Solid Capacitors) and the new film capacitor are also incorporated for more transparent vocals and solid bass notes.

After the success of the WM-1 Series, high quality sound tuning is key with this Walkman®, OFC cables have been used for wiring the internal amplifier to the headphone jack which results in powerful sound quality by low resistance value and signal transmission without loss. For powerful bass and less noise, the double layer capacitor is the main battery power source in this Walkman®. Two crystal oscillators are also utilised to deliver you high quality audio with improved SN ratio and large volume of music data.

Separating audio and power/digital block on the circuit board, the SN ratio has been improved by minimising noise. The high quality audio resistor has been used as the LC filter for the headphone output to reduce magnetic distortion which results in expansive, high transparent sound quality.

You can also enjoy listening to music from your PC with the USB-DAC function which allows you to stream sound directly from your existing devices through your Walkman® for a better sound experience. The ZX300 also supports MQA™2 files as well for another way to enjoy Hi-Res Audio.

Sleek, premium and fully functional
With a music dedicated touchscreen interface, every function you need is at your fingertips and just one tap means you can change the volume of your music at any time. Its slim and light weight design incorporates a staggering 30 hours of battery life3 and 64GB memory built in, plus support for external memory4 – this Walkman® lets you listen to music all day long, ideal for a long journey.
