Winner of Yahoo-MAS Cili Padi Awards 2013 Announced!

Remember Yahoo-MAS Cili Padi Awards 2013? The short film competition attracted a record of 265 entries including an entry by Muhammad Redha Bin Ampuani, a 21-year-old mechanical engineering student who ended up winning the grand prize.

Unfortunately, Muhammad Redha’s film titled, ‘Accepted’ was disqualified from the competition a few hours after the announcement. The organizer was alerted by netizens on how similar it is to another film uploaded on Vimeo two years ago titled 'One Step Forward'. (Whaaaat?!)


The coveted title was then handed to the deserving winner- 'Sly' which constituted the young duo of Soo Wei Wen and Nicholas Chin.

‘Tiger’ produced by four friends – Toh Jia Voon, Chia Sheng Wei, Ong Jun Tien and Cheng Wei Heng was announced the 1st runner up while 'Life' by Dan Khoo was announced the 2nd runner up of the competition.

Congrats to all the winners! Read more!

Open for Business: H&M Avenue K

Decided not to wear anything H&M that night. So I opted for this Superdry tee and PARIS baseball hat from Zalora

Another H&M store officially opened its door last month in Kuala Lumpur. This time in Avenue K, just opposite our beloved Petronas Twin Tower.

I was there at the pre-launch party where invited guests were offered 20% discount storewide. The best part was shopping with champagne in one hand and air filled with hard-hitting dance music courtesy of DJ Nadine and Goldfish.

I didn't spend much because I was saving up for Isabel Marant x H&M which I heard gonna cost an arm and a leg. So I snagged a pair of skinny jeans in darker wash than the one that I bought last year.

We stayed on till late because unlike any other launch party, the champagne flow didn't stop after 12 and I made like a bajillion of new friends whose name I immediately forgotten after my champagne haze cleared up.

It was an unforgettable night. I'm so glad I came.
