Consider yourself blessed. The Malaysian passport is pretty damn powerful and entitles us access to many countries without any restrictions, hassle-free.

While countries in the European Union (all EU states except Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Ireland, Romania and The United Kingdom) were once freely accessible to us visa-free for a limited period of time – 90 days to be exact – there will be a new immigration process implemented from the year 2020.

Called the European Travel Information and Authorisation System (ETIAS), it will be mandatory for all citizens from visa-free countries, including Malaysians, to apply before they can cross the borders of the EU states.

The purpose of ETIAS is reportedly to control the potential threats of ineligible individuals, and also to quicken, facilitate, reinforce and simplify border control procedures against document and identity fraud.

All those from the visa-free countries will need to hold a valid ETIAS prior to boarding, and the application can be done online. It is recommended to apply at least 72 hours prior to departure.

It will cost RM48.30 (10 Euros), however those under the age of 18 will be able to obtain ETIAS for free without any fees. All it takes to apply for ETIAS is a valid passport, credit card, and necessary contact details such as a valid address, phone number and email address.

Do take note that not all submissions will be approved, and should your application be rejected, an email will be sent to you explaining why it was refused.

Amongst the countries which require ETIAS include Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, San Marino, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and Vatican City State.

Fronted by the super talented and fearless sound master Emoh Instead (whose real name is Chris Emerson) — What So Not, an experimental electronic music project by the Australian musician, was formerly a duo, in partnership with record producer Flume before the latter departed from the group in 2015.

What So Not’s free-for-all experimental approach to dance music has garnered millions of fans across the globe, and this year, we can thank Good Vibes Festival for ~finally~ blessing us Malaysians with his presence as a headliner.

Instagram Photo

Some of Emoh’s best work includes head-banging yet simultaneously melodic songs such as “Goh”, “Stuck In Orbit” and “Jaguar”, which he performed at his BOMB AF Genting Highlands show. He gave his fans everything we ever wanted and more — the visuals were stunningly trippy, and he played mind-blowing remixes of his own songs that you won’t find anywhere online. It was beyond perfect. In fact, his set was the definition of insane in the membrane.

Luckily, we got the chance to meet up with the man himself before his set on 21 July 2018 (Saturday). Read on to find out more:

Instagram Photo

Q: What So Not is pretty iconic. How did you come up with this name?

It was the phrase “What’s hot, what’s not”, and the idea of the project was to try and create — not to follow the trend of the moment, but to create the next trend.

Q: How did it all begin for you, and when would you say was the time you got your big break?

I played drums when I was a kid, and I never really thought I’d do music but I just kinda happened that way, you know? I got into DJ-ing when I was like 17, 18, and I really fell in love with that. And then I started producing from there and worked on that for many, many years. Then more so lately into songwriting, and working with really interesting artists from different fields of music and seeing what I could come up with.

Q: Growing up, have you ever thought that you would become a music producer?

Definitely not. It was not even on my radar. I worked a desk job for like 5 years before I was doing this, and it was a real strange and difficult decision to make, to be like I’m gonna abandon everything I thought was what you do, and just take a chance at this thing that just makes no sense. And it turned out to make the most sense of all.

Instagram Photo

Q: Kudos on your new album! It hits us right in the feels. It takes us through a journey of emotions every time. Can you tell us how this is different as compared to everything you’ve previously worked on?

I was touring for 6 years, and I only took my first break when I started putting this album together. So I had a lot of space and time to really hone in on certain aspects of sonic development, performance and recording of instruments, rather than just programming things. I started using my own voice a lot, like singing into interesting processing, like guitar amps and using that as textures and tones throughout the album.

It was a lot of fun, and it was a real serious dedication. I kinda locked myself away for a year and a half in a basement and put it all together. I was happy to get this cohesive narrative through the whole project and keep it as it was.

Q: There are many elements in your music that makes it complicated yet on point and distinct when compared to the conventional EDM genres. What shapes your music?

I guess there’s this underlying mood that carries through a lot of it. And I’d say the tone and texture — it intentionally has a lot of grit. It’s not clean music. It’s not simple and like, refined. I love the tension and the dynamic. I love holding things for as long as possible and bringing everyone to boiling point and then releasing, or not releasing and doing it again. I always have fun doing things like that. I feel like that’s a constant throughout the music that I make.

Instagram Photo

Q: Okay, what is your songwriting process like? 

It’s manic and unpredictable and never really the same. It’s extremely frustrating but I think gets a better result. It’s very unformulaic. Just getting in a room, getting in a frame of mind, and just.. zoning out of everything else and just — I am the song in the moment, you know?

Q: If you could choose three songs on your album that have the most personal stories, which ones would those be? Tell us about them.

All of them. It’s almost like one story, and then it just played out with all the songs, you know?

Q: Can you name three musicians who have impacted your music and work in some way or another?

I can name a lot. I can say At The Drive-In was a big influence when I was a kid. Really amazing band. Um.. I worked with Jono Ma on “Stuck In Orbit”, he’s from Jagwar Ma. He’s been a really cool person to hang with and pick his brain at different things. Very inspiring guy.

Instagram Photo

Q: Could you take us through a day in your life, from a possible morning routine through to your work?

I can’t. It’s like, one morning you get two hours of sleep and you’re on a 14 hour flight to the jungle of Nicaragua to do a writing camp, and then you fly for 6 hours to do a tour. It’s just all over the place. It’s never the same. Usually a day is like maybe 5 or 6 hours of sleep if you’re lucky, then the rest is just doing something exciting or writing music.

Q: Your recent collaborations feature quite an interesting list of musicians, such as the American rock band Toto. How did that come about?

I was playing their (Toto) record “Africa” years ago and Rolling Stones interviewed me and Skrillex cause apparently, us playing it at all these festivals in the US has made it re-enter the charts in America.

Coconut oil has long been regarded as the holy grail, all-in-one miracle solution for a slew of beauty and health concerns, including supporting the immune system and supposedly aiding in weight loss. And while there has been an increasing amount of naysayers in the recent years, a Harvard professor just made very shocking claims about the controversial food.

Dr. Karin Michels, an adjunct professor at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, has called coconut oil “poison” in a talk she gave in July, and the YouTube video of her speech uploaded then has now garnered over 900,000 views on YouTube. In the video she says, “I can only warn you urgently about coconut oil.”

She mentioned that coconut oil is more harmful than animal lard as it is composed of saturated fatty acids which can clog coronary arteries. It raises LDL cholesterol, which essentially is bad cholesterol. Yes, coconut oil may benefit the body from the outside, but you may want to reconsider feeding yourself with this ‘healthy’ ingredient.

Also, if you are going to use coconut oil, make sure it is a virgin oil. Everything in moderation, people!

It’s a given – Anyone who pays a visit to Tokyo’s famed Tsujiki fish market gets there before dawn to witness the tuna auctions that have been operating for the over 80 years. The sad news is that the market will stop admitting tourists for its tuna auctions as it prepares to move on October 11, 2018.

The popular tourist attraction which opened in 1935 will be shifting locations to east Tokyo in Toyosu, the site of a previous gas plant, and the tuna auctions, which have been considered a must-see when visiting Japan, are usually frequented by top restaurants around Tokyo, especially by Michelin-star sushi chefs around the area.

Photo: Japan Guide

The tuna auctions usually begin at 5.30 a.m. daily and the number of tourists are normally capped at 120 people, but that doesn’t stop throngs of foreigners who make their way there every morning as some tourists even start forming a line as early as 2 a.m. in the morning.

Access to the tuna auctions will end on September 15, 2018 for preparatory work to take place, whereas the viewing of wholesale markets for vegetables and other marine products will stop on September 29. With that said, there will be an aisle prepared for tourists to watch the tuna auction through a glass wall.

Should you be visiting the Land of the Rising Sun soon, take note of the closures so you won’t be disappointed, and to make sure you don’t get up early for nothin’!

If you’re a style-lovin’ girl, you would be all too familiar with the hefty price tags that come with every clothing item. While there are plenty of alternatives and shopping platforms that allow you to build up your wardrobe without breaking the bank, there is bound to be a couple of instances whereby you come across something you really like but cannot afford.

We firmly believe that having a sense of style doesn’t mean you have to be able to buy expensive clothes. On the other hand, we cannot deny that looking lavish can give anybody a good boost of self-esteem. If you would like to look a little classier without having to starve for a week for an outfit, here are some style tips you can take note of to make your RM50 outfit look like a million bucks.

Kristjaana

1. Fabric

Fabric is literally the most important thing that can make or break your look. Think a strapless satin dress and a suede dress in the exact same cut. The former can come off as a piece of lingerie while the latter looks much more presentable. Go for pieces that are made of cotton, linen and faux suede as they aren’t relatively expensive but can look as if they are worth more than the actual price tag. Avoid materials like rayon, acrylic and polyester as they tend to look cheap.

2. Structure

If you’re going for a look that’s put-together, you’d definitely want to stay away from sloppy-looking or baggy pieces. There isn’t a single silhouette that suits every individual as no two body shapes are identical, but do experiment with the right proportions for a well-balanced look. Find pieces that accentuate your best features and can make you feel the most confident. We guarantee you’ll feel like a million bucks every time. 😉

F Mag

3. Prints

Many people avoid prints altogether, especially if they are bold as it can be tricky to nail. This doesn’t mean you have to be seen in plain, solid colours only, though! If you’d like to amp up the fun ante, go for classic prints like stripes, gingham, florals and polka dots to jazz up your outfit. Skip prints that are complicated, colour-clashing and can look over the top.

4. Wear the right undergarments

Unless you’re planning to go commando, do pick out the right undergarment for the each outfit you’ll be wearing to avoid unwanted bulges and unsightly lines. A bodycon dress can instantly be ruined by that dreaded VPL (visible panty line), or how wearing a pink bra under a sheer, white top doesn’t scream class whatsoever. Be wary.

Style Advisor

5. When in doubt, go for black

There’s a reason why black is always in season and will remain a a classic all year round. Everyone can pull it off and it oozes a sense of class, chicness and edge at the same time. The fact that it is a neutral colour also signifies that it can be matched with anything, thus making it an incredibly worthwhile investment.

6. Avoid wrinkles and crumples

Nothing makes you look sloppier than wearing clothes that aren’t ironed, especially if they tend to crumple easily. If you’ve made the effort to dress well, then your clothes should be worn in their best shape and form, too. Invest in a good steamer to smooth out those wrinkles and cut the ironing time short.

Girl In The Lens

7. Accessorise correctly

It’s all in the details and the last thing you’d want is to alter the whole look by putting on tacky-looking accessories. Coloured and plastic blings are a big no-no altogether, unless that is the look you are going for. Instead, go for intricate and dainty pieces in silver, gold or rose gold that make can make the world of a difference.

The American Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin has died at on Thursday morning at her Detroit home due to advance pancreatic cancer of the neuroendocrine type. She was 76.

The self-taught piano prodigy, songwriter and vocalist who dominated the music charts in the late ’60s was accompanied by family and friends at her time of death and the funeral arrangements will be held on August 31.

“In one of the darkest moments of our lives, we are not able to find the appropriate words to express the pain in our heart. We have lost the matriarch and rock of our family. The love she had for her children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and cousins knew no bounds,” her family said in a statement.

“We have been deeply touched by the incredible outpouring of love and support we have received from close friends, supporters and fans all around the world. Thank you for your compassion and prayers. We have felt your love for Aretha and it brings us comfort to know that her legacy will live on. As we grieve, we ask that you respect our privacy during this difficult time.”

Her life and legacy will be remembered through a tribute concert happening this fall on November 14 at the Madison Square Garden in New York. Tons of tributes have also been pouring in from various celebrities and personalities who have worked with her and those who do appreciate her work.

We all love being well groomed and looking our best, but there are certain things that come with repercussions you will only experience much later. Take acrylic and gel nails for instance. According to the British Association of Dermatologists (BAD), the chemicals contained in the nail enhancements are causing an allergy epidemic.

About 2.4% of women are allergic to these chemicals, known as methacrylates, which may cause the nails to loosen or the skin to develop a severe rash. The worst part is that this reaction can spread to whatever part of the body the nails comes into contact with, and this could be the eyelids, face and even the genitals.

Photo: Unasdecoradas

Worse can happen should the professional technicians at the salons are poorly trained or when at-home kits are used without professional assistance. The truth of the matter is that many women remain undiagnosed as they do not link the symptoms to their nails.

While the percentage of women affected by the chemicals may be insignificant to you, these nail enhancements can permanently damage nails over time. And in a video, YouTuber Tina Yong perfectly demonstrates the negative effects as she examines her fingernails under a microscope.. If that doesn’t scare you, we don’t know what will!

Modern fast-pace lifestyles are taking a toll on our health, and our feet are among the most affected body parts, as they are exposed to the constant pressure of our body weight. This can lead to varicose veins, cracked heels, and fungal infections.

Still, it’s not easy to find the time to go to a local spa to detoxify our feet due to our busy schedule. But what if we tell you that you just need to rummage through your kitchen pantry for some ingredients, and voila — You’re ready to enjoy a nice, warm, foot soak, which will eliminate bad odour, calm the feet, and kill bacteria and fungi.

1. Lemon and Epsom salt

Ingredients — Epsom salt, Peppermint essential oil, Olive oil, Mint tea, Lemon juice, and a bowl of hot water

Instructions — In a bowl of hot water, add all the ingredients, and soak the feet for 15 minutes. Then, rinse them with water, and remove the dead skin cells from the surface using a pumice stone. Olive oil and Epsom salt is one of the best ways to fix feet issues and relieve the pain in them.

Moreover, the salt will increase iodine levels and tone the feet, as well as lowers your stress level.

2. Salt Detox Bath

Ingredients — 2 cups of baking soda, 1 cup of sea salt, 1 cup of Epsom salt and Essential oils (optional)

Instructions — Put all of the ingredients in boiling water and wait for them to dissolve. Then, cool down the mixture and put your feet to soak in it for half an hour. Your skin irritations will be eliminated and your fatigue will disappear. Moreover, the magnesium levels in your body will increase and the whole body is going to be detoxified!

3. Oxygen Detox Bath

Ingredients — 1 tbsp. of dried ginger powder, 2 cups of hydrogen peroxide

Instructions — Put hot water in your tub and then add the ingredients. Put your feet to soak in it for 30 minutes. Your allergies and skin irritations will be gone, alongside with the toxins!

All in all, foot bath is a universal detox method as it cleanses the body of toxins and support overall health. Since there are multiple nerves located on the feet, so such foot baths will directly target them, provide relief and thus relaxes the mind.
