Miss Universe 2018, the 67th edition of the worldwide pageant, will be happening in Thailand on 16 December, and representing our country is none other then reigning Miss Universe Malaysia 2018, 21-year-old accounting and finance student, Jane Teoh.

While the whole evening’s affair keeps viewers on their toes, one of the most highly anticipated highlights would have to be the national costume parade whereby the contestants strut their stuff down the runway donning elaborate costumes that best represent their home country.

How does this year’s Malaysian creation look like, you ask? It’s an intricate Bangau Perahu national costume, an artistic interpretation of traditional Malay craftsmanship by designer Salleh Hamid. The outfit, which took six months to complete, features prime elements of the Malaysian culture.

The exquisite garb, inspired by the boat’s crane, most commonly seen on fishing boats of the East Coast, is adorned with a bangau on the right shoulder and okok on the left, with caping on the neck. The warrior-like attire also spotlights a corset made to look like an armour, as well as 3D shield-like structure resembling the front of the boat.

The final look is then complemented with royal blue, custom-bade boots designed by Rhea Tan. All the best, Jane! We’re all counting on ya. 😉

Potterheads, rejoice! Not everyone is fortunate enough to be able to pay a visit to The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter™ at Universal Studios Hollywood and Japan, but for a limited time only, you can now experience the same supernatural magic closer to home in Singapore.

Available at the Changi Airport until mid-February next year, A Wizarding World Holiday at Changi is part of the airport’s Christmas festivities and it is one of the first Harry Potter-themed events held outside the Universal Studios theme parks. Evidently, there’s a whole lot to look forward to.

Four life-size set-ups – Hogsmeade Village, Diagon Alley, Whomping Willow of Hogwarts and Magizoologist Newt Scamander’s Menagerie – were erected based on prime locations featured in the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beast films, aside from a myriad of activities happening all around.

Eager fans will be able to try on wizard robes, give “spell-casting” a try, and also toss Quaffle balls made popular by the fictional sport of Quidditch in the Harry Potter universe. Those interested can also get their hands on official Harry Potter memorabilia including tote bags, luggage tags, scarves, plushies, stationery and more.

Perfect time to book that flight ticket to Singapore!

It’s now been about a month since my return from the life-changing, two-month solo escapade I embarked on in Europe and in all honesty, it hasn’t been easy re-adjusting back to normal routine. I constantly feel disconnected, uncertain and confused, questioning every aspect of my life and wondering what’s next.

That aside, I find myself often reminiscing about the tremendous memories etched in my mind and heart from all that soul-searching and befriending strangers on the road whom I now call friends. As cliché as it sounds, I guess travelling, especially for a long period of time, really does change you in more ways than one.

While in Europe though, I was fortunate enough to be able to partner with Klook, a full in-destination booking platform, for an opportunity to experience some of its endless offerings, particularly since the Hong Kong-founded brand had recently expanded to Europe, serving major cities like Paris, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Berlin and more.

Here are five experiences and conveniences I booked through Klook while in Europe which showcases the versatility and ease of use of the platform:

The iconic Eiffel Tower in Paris, France

Paris, France
Paris Pass

Ah, Paris. It was the city where I first dipped my toes in within Europe and learned to, well, enjoy doing nearly everything solo. With a vicinity this large and so much to see and do, I knew the easiest way to go about it was to purchase an all-in-one tourist pass that would allow me into various attractions without having to purchase tickets in advance.

Needless to say, the Paris Pass on Klook was one of the best decisions I had made. Not only was I able to skip the queue at many of the high-frequency attractions such as the ever so frequented Louvre Museum, the pass also granted me unlimited travel across central Paris via the Metro, buses, RER, trams and even SNCF overground trains.

Should you also be new to the city and have little to no clue as to where you should begin exploring, I cannot recommend the Paris Pass enough. It didn’t just save me time and money, but also the hassle of figuring out the transportation system and reserving tickets through multiple websites.

Cava tasting within the Pere Ventura cava cellar on the outskirts of Barcelona, Spain

Barcelona, Spain
Wine and Cava Half Day Tour from Barcelona

Anyone who has stepped foot in Barcelona would probably know how absolutely trying it is to peel away from all the irresistible tapas, pintxos and paella available on offer. Also, who could say no to its endless and glorious array of delectable wines? I made it a point to visit a Catalonian winery and it was the most fun I have had in a while.

We were transported in a private coach to not one but two family-run boutique wineries, with the first being over 2,000 years old. Our hottie of an expert winemaker divulged on the winery’s history, the grape varieties, vine growing, and wine making before we were taken on a tour through the dark and dingy yet intriguing cellar.

A trip to a winery wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the actual vineyard and we did just that on board a convertible 4×4 vehicle. The highlight though, without a question, was tasting the delicious wines, accompanied by some gourmet delicatessen, including some of the best and freshest olives, grown in the vineyard itself, I have ever had.

Our next winery was meant solely for cava, which is essentially Spanish sparkling wine. We were ushered into a lavish-looking Capella, the heart of the cellar, where we then tasted cava, paired with a handful of yummy appetisers. Thanks to all that booze, there was instant camaraderie and it was as if we were a bunch of old friends getting together.

The Holocaust Memorial in Berlin, Germany

Berlin, Germany
3.5-Hour City Highlights Sightseeing Bike Tour in Berlin

It didn’t take long for me to fall in love with Berlin. Old and new mingle in this effervescent city that is full of the unexpected, whether you’re after rich history, trendsetting culture, progressive architecture or a wild nightlife. Also, despite its ethnic diversity, Berliners have a carefree, non-judgemental outlook on life, allowing you to be whoever you choose.

While the S-Bahn and the U-Bahn are highly accessible, I wanted to soak up the sights of the city with a varying perspective and ended up booking a 3.5-hour bicycle tour on Klook. It was a small group of eight to my surprise, and I learned way more about Berlin’s 800-year old bygone days than I ever would have if I hadn’t gone on this tour.

We pedalled through the city following after our guide, stopping by hidden gems like Stolpersteines or stumble stones bearing the names and dates of life of the victims of Nazi extermination and persecution, important landmarks like the Brandenburg Gate and the Holocaust Memorial, and even prime sites that attest the morbid aftermath of the World War II.

Amsterdam, Netherlands
Grand Café Restaurant 1e Klas in Amsterdam

Amongst the 18 cities I had visited in Europe, Amsterdam was easily one of the most expensive ones. Looking for hostels that were priced within my minuscule budget was painful, and so was searching for decent food that wasn’t piping hot fries in a paper cone topped with mayonnaise, which is the most popular street snack in the city.

Yet with the cut-throat prices, I was after a fancy dining experience sans the hefty price tag. The options weren’t many, but I settled for dinner at the Grand Café Restaurant 1e Klas, as found on Klook. After I had purchased my three-course meal voucher, reservation was as easy as ringing the restaurant.

Designed by famed architect Pierre Cuypers who is also behind the Dutch Rijksmuseum, the lavish restaurant, which is conveniently located within Amsterdam Centraal, boasts a traditional Art Nouveau interior adorned with grand chandeliers and sophisticated, mid-century modern furniture fit only for the affluent.

The food was no less impressive. I had to choose a starter, main and dessert from an elaborate menu, finally deciding on the Enriched beef bouillon with chives and forest mushrooms, Argentinian rib-eye steak with herb butter and Homemade cheesecake. Evidently, I left the restaurant a happy customer.

The Stansted Express train which directly links central London to the Stansted Airport

London, United Kingdom
Stansted Express Ticket

I dreaded October 1st. It marked the end of my two-month solo voyage across Europe, and as much as every fibre of my body had wanted to stay, my flight back home to Kuala Lumpur was due. It felt extremely bittersweet as I was packing up my bags for the final time in the hostel, but alas, my responsibilities await.

While getting around the city was a piece of cake with the tube, getting to the Stansted Airport, my port of departure, from central London meant that I had to catch a separate train. The Stansted Express was, after all, the quickest way there as I was advised by one of the many new pals I had befriended.

Luckily, I was able to get myself a Stansted Express ticket off Klook. All I had to do was get it printed and upon arriving at the Liverpool Street Station where the train departed, I flashed the ticket for easy, fuss-free boarding. It’s not just experiences you can book via Klook, but also conveniences such as this that make travel that much smoother.

Check out Klook for hassle free travels and have a safe journey!

Marvel fans all over the globe are left grieving today as the iconic comic writer Stan Lee, who was behind the fictional superheroes such as Daredevil, X-Men and Spider-Man, has died at the age of 95. Not cause of death was revealed, however an ambulance was called to his Hollywood Hills home before he died at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

“He felt an obligation to his fans to keep creating,” Lee’s daughter J.C. Lee said in a statement to Reuters. “He loved his life and he loved what he did for a living. His family loved him and his fans loved him. He was irreplaceable.” Lee was born at Manhattan’s Upper West Side in 1922.

Born Stanley Martin Lieber, Lee, together with artists like Kirby and Steve Ditko, revived the comics industry with his superheroes, building The Marvel Universe from comics to screen with an endless slew of TV and movie adaptations, as well as making enormous strides on pop culture.

Lee’s career started when he landed a job at a publishing house at age 17 where he began writing scripts for mystery and superhero comics. He then became the editor-in-chief at age 19 and spent the next 20 years giving a voice to his characters. He shot to fame in the ’60s when he wrote his first synopsis for artist Jack Kirby to follow.

He then took on a new role as publisher of Marvel Comics in 1972 after writing scripts for over thee decades. Lee incorporated his Marvel characters into newspaper strips, books and even graphic novels before moving to Los Angeles in 1980 to take a chance on the TV and film industry with his work.

After struggling to make it in the industry for years, Lee’s efforts took off with the 2000 blockbuster version of X-Men by Bryan Singer. The films in which Lee often makes cameos in, from Iron Man (2008) to Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018), have now made a combined $17.6 billion at the box office.

Reports have also suggested that Lee had already recorded his cameo for Avengers 4. The film, which will mark the 22nd film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is set to be released in May 2019. Below is a roundup of all the cameos he has ever made in his superhero films.

For the longest time, all the world ever wanted was for their teeth to be pearly white and stain-free. Think about it. Most, if not all readily available dental products and treatments in the market aim to whiten and brighten teeth.. until now that is.

New York-based cosmetics brand Chrom has unveiled a peculiar product that has been making headlines everywhere – tooth polish. Yeap, and it does exactly what you’re probably picturing in your head right at this moment.

Instagram Photo

Chrom’s toothpolishes come in 10 different colours, which can be applied and removed conveniently. Packaged like lip glosses, these toothpolishes come in shades like Baby Blue, Sunshine and Mint.

According to the brand, the toothpolishes don’t taste like anything and are also apparently budge-proof, so you can eat and drink without worrying about your rainbow-coloured teeth.

Instagram Photo

How do you remove the “100% safe” polish, you ask? While the toothpolish claims to last for 24 hours on the teeth, removal is as easy as brushing your teeth. It also doesn’t stain the teeth.

Chrom founder David Silverstein told Insider about the FDA-approved product, “We see this [colorful teeth] becoming commonplace — everything from a club vibe to an everyday workplace fashion accent.”

Instagram Photo

Okay, while it may be music festival material, we highly doubt most employers will be happy if you show up to a client meeting with glaring pink-coloured chompers.. What’s wrong with white teeth?!

Anyway, should you be interested, check out the brand’s website. Each toothpolish retails for $20!

The annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is something we look forward to year after year and this year’s instalment of the lingerie-filled extravaganza was no less magical. The Angels strut their stuff on the grand runway, showcasing heart-stopping looks that included the diamond-encrusted Fantasy Bra, drool-worthy bodysuits and psychedelic garbs fit only for the fearless. Here, we round up the highlights, must-see looks and also some of the first-timers who walked their first VS Fashion Show ever!

Highlights

One of the longest standing Angels ever, Adriana Lima, shed an emotional tear as she walked the VS Fashion Show runway for the final time. To date, the 37-year-old Brazilian beauty has walked 20 shows for the lingerie brand. She announced her retirement shortly before the glamorous event saying on Instagram, “Dear Victoria, Thank you for showing me the world, sharing your secrets, and most importantly not just giving me wings but teaching me to fly. ❤ to the best fans in the 🌎! Love, Adriana 💖

Long time favourite Behati Prinsloo had taken a two year-long hiatus from the VS Fashion Show due to two pregnancies with her pop star husband Adam Levine, and she stunned the crowd on the runway with her phenomenal post-baby body. Who would’ve thought she has had TWO babies?!

The lucky VS Angel handpicked to honourably display the 2018 Fantasy Bra was none other than Elsa Hosk. The Swedish model graced the runway in the dazzling bralette and a matching body chain, worth over $1,000,000. The work of art features 2,100 Swarovski diamonds and took 930 hours to complete.

While there is already an existing array of exciting stuff to do in and around Kuala Lumpur, fun-loving souls like ourselves are constantly seeking fresh and fulfilling experiences worthy of our time. And should you be after an exhilarating form of physical activity, look no further than this new all-in-one indoor activity park right in the heart of Kuala Lumpur – SuperPark.

Originating from Finland, SuperPark boasts a 40,000 square foot space within Avenue K Shopping Mall and extends a fun slew of over 20 activities catered to people of all walks of life, ages and fitness levels. The unveiling of SuperPark Malaysia follows right after SuperPark Hong Kong, and SuperPark Singapore, which will be open from 17 November this year.

So, what does SuperPark Malaysia have on offer, you ask? The highlight, exclusive only to us, is a massive 2,500 square foot skating rink formed with an artificial, 100% recyclable, and non-toxic synthetic ice that fulfils the demands of professional athletic requirements without the tedious cleanup and fear of slipping on a wet surface.

Aside from the skating rink, the three themed areas are The Adventure Area, comprising interactive parkour, slides, play towers and more for younger children; The Game Arena including baseball, street basketball and the likes; and The Freestyle Hall encompassing an indoor climbing wall, obstacle course and trampoline platforms, amongst others.

SuperPark may just be the answer whether it involves family-friendly weekend fun, corporate team-building get-togethers or competitive challenges between friends. Six party rooms are also available for bookings should a need for a private space arises.

SuperPark will officially open its doors to the public come December 2018. Prices range between RM30 and RM50 per person, varying on weekdays, weekends and public holidays.

Of course the British actor is honoured, but he also reacted to snagging the title in the sexiest way possible by urging his American fans to vote for the Congressional Election currently going on in the United States. He also put his winning cover on People Magazine on Instagram.

Beauty brands around the globe get us excited all year round with ingenious launches, but more often than not, the truth of the matter is that there is more than meets the eye beneath all the enticing hype built around these products. We’re talking drama. Tea. Scandals. Lots of it.

From copycat products and brands not understanding the need to be inclusive to less than genuine influencer marketing and founders tainted with controversy, the beauty industry, like fashion, has its dirty laundry too. And one Instagram account – Estée Laundry – is making sure that we’re aware of it all.

These anonymous insiders unapologetically call out these brands and share their unfiltered opinions regarding the industry, shining light on their questionable modus operandi and holding them accountable for their BS practices, such as their reliance on influencer marketing on social media.

Boasting over 23,000 followers now, the team behind Estée Laundry claims that “being an anonymous collective gives us the power to stand up against beauty entities with unlimited resources”. It’s entertaining, highly informative and makes all of us think twice about our purchasing decisions.

Whether or not you choose to support these brands is your prerogative, but at least be well-informed on whatever is happening behind the scenes before making your call. As proactive consumers, we should be demanding this sort of transparency.
