Here’s a reason to rejoice on a gloomy hump-day afternoon – Tourism & Culture minister, Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz, said today that Malaysians will not need to pay the Tourism Tax, scheduled to be implemented on August 1, as it will only apply to foreign tourists.

The minister said that foreign tourists will be charged a flat rate of RM10 per night and per room, for all types of hotels and accommodation. “We will impose a RM10 flat rate from five-star to zero-star hotels for foreign tourists, and Malaysians will be exempted from the tax across all classifications of hotels,” he said in Parliament this morning.

The Tourism Tax was passed in Parliament earlier this year, was set to be collected from this month but was later postponed to August 1.

Initially, the charges were set between RM2.50 and RM20 a night, depending on the hotel rating. The announcement of the new tax incited criticism, primarily from budget hotel operators fearing that it would push tourists to utilise rental platform operators such as Airbnb. In response, the government then announced an exemption for Malaysians who stay at hotels rated three-stars and below.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak is scheduled to make the official announcement soon. Until then, we’re happy to know that we don’t need to cough up extra RMs for our next roadtrip!

Late last year, the ground began to rumble that Amazon was planning to enter Southeast Asia via Singapore in 2017. After some fits and starts, it appears that the e-commerce giant is finally ready to launch in the Lion City.

The arrival could happen as soon as this week — with Amazon Prime, Amazon Prime Now fast delivery and Amazon’s regular e-commerce services set to become available to Singapore’s population of over five million people. Pricing is still unclear at this point.

In a further hint, Amazon has already begun marketing its services through online influencers. A number of high-profile Instagram users in Singapore have posted sponsored teasers of Amazon’s Prime Now service in recent days. While not labeled Amazon, the distinctive tick on the packaging is a clear giveaway.

The Singapore launch is widely expected to be the beginning of a regional expansion as the city-state has far too small of a population to make any impact on Amazon’s overall revenue numbers. Southeast Asia has around 600 million people and a growing regional middle-class and millions of people coming online for the first time.

Instagram Photo

Industry insiders weigh in on the coming e-commerce bloodbath and how brands will have to step up their game.

The e-commerce giant has spent 2017 pushing into new geographies and verticals. It expanded into the Middle East — via the acquisition of Souq.com — initiated a move into Australia, and it is in the process of buying Whole Foods in the U.S. for just shy of $14 billion.

Now it is jumping into Southeast Asia, a region of 600 million consumers where rival Alibaba and fellow Chinese firm Tencent are already actively investing.

Instagram Photo

Alibaba has since increased its stake to 83 percent via another investment. Alibaba-Lazada preempted Amazon’s arrival with the acquisition of Singapore-based e-grocery company Redmart, and the introduction of a Prime-like membership service in partnership with Uber and Netflix.

Amazon will also be keeping tabs on Indonesia’s Tokopedia, which a source told TechCrunch is in discussions with Tencent ally JD.com and Alibaba over an investment that could reach $500 million.

Bring it on, fellas.

It’s happening. Grant Gustin aka The Flash (TV Series), has revealed that he will be visiting Malaysia soon! The American actor  is engaged to Andrea Thoma who is of half-Kadazan.

When he made the announcement of the couple’s upcoming visit at Comic-Con Inter­na­tional 2017 last weekend, his fiancee – who was present at the press confe­rence – cringed. Gustin assured her: “It’s OK, honey, because it’s going to be announced at some point.”

elle

 

He expressed his eagerness to visit Malaysia in December to savour the local cuisine and soak up the culture, “Trying new food usually scares me but when it comes to the taste of Malaysian foods that I have had, I am into it,” said Gustin about what he is looking forward to the most here.

 

At the press conference to promote Season Four of The Flash, Gustin also revealed that he met Thoma through social media. “She went to school with my bro­ther in Norfolk, Virginia, where I am from. I didn’t know her then. The two of us connected via social media because she was my brother’s friend.

“I was with him in New York at the time and she popped up on my page, and I was like, ‘Who is this?’ And he gave me the rundown a little bit, and I followed her, and the rest is history.”

Gustin’s knowledge of Malaysia and its culture is limited to what Thoma has told him, so the actor said he was excited to find out more about the country himself. “In December, we will see what it is about the culture that I would love, and I am sure there are things that I will love.

FameFly

“I have learned some Malay, but it’s pretty basic stuff, little phrases, which I always get wrong,” the actor said.

Gustin first shot to fame when he appeared in musical drama Glee in 2011. However, it was his turn as Barry Allen in the superhero series The Flash that propelled him to international stardom. Thoma, whose mother is Sabahan, works as a physical therapist.

Looks like Michael Kors might have picked out some new shoes to go with its handbags. The US handbag maker has made an offer to snap up luxury shoe brand Jimmy Choo in a £896m deal, which is about RM4.8 billion.

The brand had also agreed to pay 230p per Jimmy Choo share and that the Jimmy Choo directors, who own 1.3% of the firm, “consider the terms of the acquisition to be fair and reasonable”, and the agreed offer was “final and will not be increased” unless there was another offer from a third party.

The proposed sale of Jimmy Choo, which rose to prominence after being regularly featured in US TV show Sex and The City, follows an auction process that was kicked off in April by majority owner JAB Holdings, the investment vehicle of the wealthy German Reimann family, which owns a near 68% stake in the London-listed company.

Unfortunately, JAB has recently been shifting its focus away from high-end goods and towards its interests in coffee and sandwiches after sealing billion dollar takeovers for Douwe Egberts coffee and US bagel chain Panera Bread.

Why? Many upscale retailers are grappling with plummeting sales and tepid profits. Mall traffic in North America has declined sharply, and deep discounting tactics have resulted in some luxury labels losing much of their luster with core customers.

Shoppers who have traditionally been loyal to the so-called middle market have gravitated toward brands at extremes of the style, and price, spectrum. That has benefited e-commerce giants like Amazon, fast-fashion brands like H&M and Zara, and luxury houses like Gucci. And it has left companies like Michael Kors — once the runaway leader of the “accessible luxury market” — exposed.

Michael Kors said it expects to open new Jimmy Choo retail stores and develop the brand’s online presence, as well as to expand the assortment of its fashion offerings. The deal came just months after Coach agreed to a $2.4 billion deal to buy American handbag brand Kate Spade, apparently hoping that the combination of two affordable luxury brands could help it carve out new territory in a crowded market.

“We are pleased to announce the acquisition of Jimmy Choo, an iconic brand with a rich history as a leading global luxury brand”, said Michael Kors’ chairman and chief executive.”We believe that Jimmy Choo is poised for meaningful growth in the future and we are committed to supporting the strong brand equity that Jimmy Choo has built over the last 20 years”, he added. Jimmy Choo’s chairman, Peter Harf, said that a combination with Michael Kors would allow Jimmy Choo to “embark on its next phase of growth.”

Tamara Mellon

Jimmy Choo was founded in a Hackney workshop in east London in 1996 by the Malaysian fashion designer Jimmy Choo along with former Vogue accessories editor Tamara Mellon. Its strappy stilettoes are worn by celebrity fans including Beyoncé and the Duchess of Cambridge. The firm runs 150 stores around the world where it sells its handmade shoes and bags, as well as accessories.

The company then passed through a number of private equity owners with Ms Mellon leaving the business in 2011 following an acrimonious dispute with Lion Capital. The row was later documented in her book, In My Shoes, in which she likened private equity firms to “vultures” who didn’t understand the world of fashion. In her book, Tamara also claimed that she is the one who designed Jimmy Choo’s collections.

The former co-founder says she never received a single sketch from him during the years they worked together. “The original idea was for Jimmy to design the collection and I would run the operations of the business. But it soon became very clear that Jimmy’s skill was in making shoes. He’s a cobbler.”

In case you’re interested, Tamara Mellon’s book In My Shoes: A Memoir is available on Amazon.

Playtime Pains: 6 Common Reasons Why Sex Hurts https://www.lipstiq.com/2017/150304/playtime-pains-6-common-reasons-sex-hurts https://www.lipstiq.com/2017/150304/playtime-pains-6-common-reasons-sex-hurts#respond Tue, 25 Jul 2017 15:52:28 +0000 https://www.lipstiq.com/?p=150304 If there’s anything we know about sex is that it should be anything but painful.

If there’s anything we know about sex is that it should be anything but painful. Almost every woman we know would complain about painful sex every once in awhile. Though it seems like a common problem, it doesn’t mean it’s okay to just put up with it. If you’re experiencing discomfort down there, stop everything you’re doing and figure out just what the hell is going on before it ruins your vagina and your sex life.

See if these sound familiar. If they do, we’ve got solutions to fix those issues today :

1. Lack of lube

We’re aware that the vagina is a self-lubricator, but there’s a catch – it doesn’t start becoming sufficiently lubricated until 5 to 7 minutes AFTER your brain is in the game. And despite what you see in movies, warm baths are known to dry vaginal secretions, not load it up. So stay away from warm baths before foolin’ around, and have a tube of lube ready to go. Try Smile Makers‘ range of personal lubricants for RM59.90 a pop at Watsons– they’ve got different consistencies to suit your fancy, and they’re all natural.

2. It’s A Tight Squeeze

For a small number of women, “genital fit” can be a cause of pain. Meaning, your partner maybe “too large” or you’re extra petite. Here’s where you may need to be “loosened” up by trying simple sex moves like missionary, or you need to turn yourself on more with foreplay. And remember, no guy is ever too large-and-in-charge to wear a condom. Period. Get a pack of Durex Invisible – Extra Sensitive Condoms for RM14.45 at Guardian.

3. It’s been awhile since you’ve been in the game

The struggle is real with dry spells. Of course, none of us intend on having a sex slump, but it happens. Now, we’re not saying that you’ve got to make sex as part of your daily/weekly routine, but we do want you to know that it’s totally normal for it to hurt if you haven’t done it in a couple of months or so. If you’re about to get out of a slump, don’t rush into anything. Take your time, and ease into things slowly for an enjoyable ride.

4. You’re stressed out

Relaxation is an integral part of feeling ready and interested in sex. If you’re stressed out, you might take that tension to bed with you so it’s important to de-stress before getting busy. You can start by giving each other massages with relaxing essential oils like coconut or lemongrass. Not into rub downs? Try Yoga!

 

Photo: E Health

5.  You have an STD or pelvic disease

Yeast infections, fibroids and pelvic inflammatory diseases maybe the cause of painful intercourse. In case you’ve been a little careless as of late and sex hasn’t been a pleasant experience, it maybe time to pay your gynaecologist a visit. Don’t worry, it’s pretty common for women to experience these and there are oral and vaginal medications that can treat those in a jiffy.

6. You’re using the wrong positions

It’s always good to change up your routine once in awhile, but trying to contort your bodies into oblivion ala Karma Sutra may not be the best option for everyone. A guy’s curvature may throw your go-to moves a little off balance, so feel free to switch it around until you find something that feels right. And never skip foreplay – jumping right into sex can create friction, and not the good kind.

Amongst the Malaysian inspired dishes she wowed the judges with include Red Emperor Fish on Spicy Fragrant Sambal, which she based on a dish her own mom used to prepare. Both her parents are also very passionate cooks.

The 29-year-old accountant was first raised in Johor Baru before she moved to Kuala Lumpur in her late teens. She then moved to Australia when she was 19.

On her win, she mentions that she hopes to open a restaurant to showcase Malaysian flavours.

Congratulations! We’re so proud. 😉

Lush’s Revolutionary Jelly Bombs Are So Magical, Even Harry Potter Wants In https://www.lipstiq.com/2017/150260/lushs-revolutionary-jelly-bombs-magical-even-harry-potter-wants https://www.lipstiq.com/2017/150260/lushs-revolutionary-jelly-bombs-magical-even-harry-potter-wants#respond Tue, 25 Jul 2017 05:28:09 +0000 https://www.lipstiq.com/?p=150260 Are you over bubbles?

Are you over bubbles? Fed up of fizz? Or is your bathtub just not sassy enough? If you’ve ever wished to elevate your bath time experience, then your wish is Lush’s command as the cosmetic brand has just released a new series of bath bombs that takes the meaning of innovation to the next level.

When it comes to bath products, there’s no denying Lush Cosmetics know what they’re doing. Known simply as Jelly Bombs, these cute products are apparently similar to Lush’s existing bath bombs, but instead of adding colouring and softening your bath water, they will turn your bath water into a wibbly-wobbly goodness.

No, seriously. It’s like taking a straight-up slime bath — but, you know, slightly more glamorous than that.

Instagram Photo

As noted on their website, the jelly bombs contain sodium alginate, which is derived from a seaweed. When dropped into a tub filled with warm water, the sodium alginate is released, turning that bathwater into a jelly-like substance. The result? Your skin will supposedly be left completely smooth, thanks to the jelly bomb’s softening affect.

In the meantime, check out the videos below of the jelly bombs in action — you can almost imagine what it feels like to sink your body into the gooey substance just from watching.

Of course, the range would not be complete without Harry Potter’s magical touch. At first glance, Dark Arts — inspired by HP’s franchise — appears a dark slate shade, but once it’s dunked in water, a mysterious pink “love potion” spews out, causing the water to turn into a sparkling, stardust-like concoction.

Lush Cosmetics explains, “When the muggles are getting you down and it feels like the dementors are looming, dabble in the dark arts with spicy cinnamon leaf oil and almond essential oil. Slytherin-to a hot bath and cast this spicy bomb into the water. Tendrils of black give way to love potion pink as thick, skin softening jelly spreads on the surface of the water. Soak in your personal invisibility cloak and revel in your moment of peace.”

Instagram Photo

As of now, the new range consists of Green Coconut (a green-and-white bomb with a tropical scent), The Big Sleep (turquoise in color with hints of lavender), Marmalade (a yellow-and-orange bomb that smells like citrus) as well as Dark Arts (a grey-coloured bomb with a cinnamon flavour).

Unfortunately, it seems as though the jelly bombs are only being promoted on Lush’s U.K. website right now, so you might need opt for other methods to get those jelly babies here in Malaysia!

Time and tide wait for no man, and so does the strong progress of technology. As Microsoft re-invents itself, the era of its iconic Paint program that helped spark our creativity when we were kids, appears to be coming to an end with the upcoming release of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.

Microsoft Paint has been a staple of the Windows operating system for 32 years and has been installed with every version since 1985. The tool lets users easily copy and paste, crop and colour images, or simply doodle and create drawings.

The image-editing application is officially being classified by Microsoft as a “deprecated feature” in a list of apps and features that may be removed from the software, meaning the app is “not in active development and might be removed in future releases” come this fall (we’re two months away!). Depreciated programs include Outlook Express, Reader app and Reading list.

It’s not entirely a surprising move though, given that it would be Microsoft’s next logical step to put its efforts toward Paint 3D, the overhauled version of the original Paint that the company introduced in the Windows 10 Creators Update earlier this year.

The new program is installed alongside traditional Paint and features 3D image making tools as well as some basic 2D image editing. But it is not an update to original Paint and doesn’t behave like it.

Still, it does mark an end of the road for the classic image-editing app. So later this year, when you update your computer to the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, don’t forget to pour one out for Paint.
