ASIA’S NEXT TOP MODEL 5: ‘EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED’

Cindy Bishop believes that the new panel of judges – comprising of creative director Yu Tsai, model mentor Cara G McIlroy, as well as special guest Pia Wurtzbach – can offer a unique mix of experience and expertise to the top 14 contestants in this season.
StarWorld’s highly anticipated modelling competition and original production, Asia’s Next Top Model (AsNTM), returns for its fifth season - bigger, better and bolder! Among the fourteen young models shortlisted this season, two Malaysian lasses – Alicia Amin and Shikin Gomez – have been chosen and will be competing in rigorous modelling challenges with other contestants for the coveted title of Asia’s Next Top Model.

Speaking at the exclusive premiere screening session held for media friends, Marketing Director for FOX Networks Group (FNG), Penny Tan, said that this season of AsNTM is pushing the envelope with a roster of competitive talent they have found within Asia’s modelling industry.

“We have been seeing better participants every season, and this gives us more opportunities to push them further. With the theme of ‘Expect the Unexpected’, the participants are not only challenged, but are surprised with a mid-season twist! Also new this season are our two new judges – model mentor, Cara G McIlroy, and special guest Pia Wurtzbach – who will each bring their unique expertise to the panel,” said Tan.

On that note, Tan introduced two very special guests for the evening the versatile and talented AsNTM host, Cindy Bishop, and supermodel and entrepreneur, Cara G McIlroy. Bishop expressed her excitement in reprising her role to host the series. Together with renowned fashion photographer and creative director, Yu Tsai, she looks forward to the energy that Cara McIlroy and Miss Universe, Pia Wurtzbach, will be bringing to the show.

She believes that with McIlroy and Wurtzbach joining her and Yu Tsai in the judging panel, they all have something different to offer through their advice and experience, honing the girls’ skills to benefit their future as models. “What is unique about AsNTM is the overwhelming diversity and expertise that we bring to the table, and it is our goal to utilise these advantages to help the contestants transcend and bring out the best in them,” said Bishop.

Thai-American supermodel, actress and TV host Cindy Bishop reprises her role of show host and head judge in Asia’s Next Top Model 5: Expect The Unexpected.

Hailing from Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam and Taiwan, the fourteen contestants were chosen from scores of auditioning hopefuls to compete for the title. Viewers will get to learn the stories of women such as Valerie and Veronika, the first twins to be on AsNTM who will compete against each other for the first time; Tu, the feisty model with curves who says what’s on her mind; and Clara, the emotional child of privilege who learns to become independent as she forges through the challenges. These are only four among the fourteen exciting young women aiming for the top—all telling their own colourful story and all possessing great modelling potential.
Shikin Gomez, 24, and Alicia Amin, 22, will represent Malaysia as they compete against 12 other contestants from Singapore, Vietnam, Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, and Taiwan for the coveted title of Asia’s Next Top Model
Both Malaysian representatives, Alicia Amin and Shikin Gomez, are no strangers to the industry. Alicia, who is 22 years old and originally from Johor, who recently moved back to KL after residing in Australia has been modelling in both countries; whereas Shikin, who is 24 years old from Damansara, Kuala Lumpur, is a name well known in the local modelling scene.

Alicia stands out with her strong features and is not shy to express her individuality. “I’m the kind of person that needs to express myself in any medium, and because of that I thrive on being constantly inspired,” she said. Regardless if she wins the competition, her ultimate goal is to return to her studies in law to become a humanitarian rights lawyer.

A graduate in Communications, Shikin started as a freelance model and eventually found her calling to become a full time model. The lanky and humble girl hopes to put the heat on the other girls, and in the long run, wishes to visit and work in different countries while learning about new cultures. “I want to be known for my consistency of being good at my profession. I believe that passion is a huge driver for everything that I do, and in whatever career you choose, you must have passion,” said Shikin.

Tan concluded by saying that the presence of two Malaysians in the competition signifies that the country has a lot of potential to be realised. “It places Malaysia on the radar in the international arena, showing that we can also produce competitive models. The future is bright for the industry and aspiring young models!” she said.

Asia’s Next Top Model Season 5 was made possible through partnership with Subaru, Maybelline, Zalora and Sunway City as the Premier Destination Partner. The winner will drive home the all-new Subaru Impreza, as well as grace the magazine cover of Nylon Singapore and star in her own fashion spread. She will also be travelling to Europe to be represented by one of the world’s biggest modelling agencies, Storm Model Management.

Being mommy of two boys, besides fetching my children from school. I also need to know to how to shop and save at the same time. Glad to know nearby son's school there's a Guardian outlet.  Guardian, the largest pharmacy, health and beauty retail chain in Malaysia, is offering consumers quality they can trust at prices they will love, through the uplift of its in-house Guardian Corporate Brand products.


Guardian Malaysia has more than 420 stores, serving over 3 million customers per month.

Guardian has close to 500 SKUs of its ‘house brand’ or corporate brand products which are available exclusively at Guardian stores nationwide. These Guardian brand products cover every aspect of life from birth, infanthood, kids, teens, young adults, adults, families and into the golden years.

Guardian Corporate Brand products are a favorite with consumers regionally and in Malaysia, contributing significantly to total sales due to their quality, high safety standards as well as the ease-of-mind and value that they provide to consumers.

“All suppliers must first pass a professional third party factory audit before being approved to produce Guardian products. The products are then manufactured under strict quality control. Mandatory quality and safety checks are conducted before the products are marketed. Finally, all suppliers are monitored through ongoing third party factory audits. Surveillance checks will be conducted on products in the stores to ensure consistence and safety,” Ms. Lin explained.

Dr. Sharon Gopalan, Resident Skin Physician at the Life Care Diagnostic Medical Centre, shared the peace-of-mind that comes with dermatologically tested and proven products for the general population.


“When a product is ‘dermatologically tested and proven’ it means that patch tests have been conducted on human skin without causing irritation or adverse reactions. A well-tolerated product is a safer choice, especially when trying out new products,” said Dr. Sharon.


“Users should be aware of their skin type and condition before using products. Skin type and conditions can change with age, hormones, diet and many other factors. What may have suited the user once, may not be suitable at a different stage of life,” she added.

All label claims are fully validated with supporting documents to ensure we deliver products that are safe, well-tested, proven, and that meet the exacting standards of our consumers, and of the standards’ bodies in all the regions we operate in.”


Mr. Lauridsen added that the assurance of trustworthy quality at affordable prices will resonate in view of rising cost living in Malaysia.


“We understand the concerns of consumers regarding the rising cost of living. As our corporate brand is wholly developed and produced for Guardian we are able to maintain quality, while making them more affordable due to economies of scale. This commitment to quality standards, and exceeding them in terms of safety, ingredients and processes, results in consumers holding Guardian Corporate Brand products in high regard for quality they can trust, at prices that they love,” added Mr. Lauridsen.


According to Mrs. Segolene Defline, Corporate Brand Director, Health & Beauty, The Dairy Farm Company, Guardian’s bold move to prioritise its corporate brand products is expected to be well received by consumers as it brings the best in classic products and new trends across the region for all age groups and product categories.


“When we develop any of Guardian Corporate Brand products we always consider our consumers needs while simultaneously tracking global health and beauty trends. Our products are developed with an eye on what is ‘next’ in health and beauty, so that consumers always have products that harness the best of current trends in ingredients and materials as well as technology and innovation. Combine this with our commitment to quality assurance, dermatological testing and our money back guarantee, and it becomes apparent why consumers are increasingly seeking out Guardian corporate brand,” Mrs Defline said.


Guardian partners with leading manufacturers and uses innovative formulations in the development and manufacture of its corporate brand products. All Guardian’s skincare and body care products are dermatologically tested and proven to provide ultimate care and confidence for its users.

According Ms. Sarol Lin, Head of Quality Assurance, Corporate Brand, Health & Beauty, Dairy Farm Group, Guardian has developed a Three-step to Quality management system that ensures Guardian delivers excellence, safety, quality and regulatory compliance across all its corporate brands.

When your friends are getting pregnant and you’re not

You and your partner are trying to conceive for a few months now. Last month, your friend broke the news that they're expecting a baby and this month, another friend is having a baby shower. It seems like everybody's getting pregnant except you. What should you do? 

Trying to conceive can sometimes be very stressful and depressing to some women, especially when they feel like everybody else is getting pregnant. Don't be too hard on yourself. It is normal to feel sad about it, but don't beat yourself up too hard for not getting pregnant right away.

If you think joining a pregnancy-related gathering will just hurt you, politely decline the invitation first to give yourself some time to be away from the things that may cause you more depression.

Be with your partner and try to enjoy each other's company without talking about getting pregnant or trying to conceive. Just relax and have fun with him. Sometimes, trying to conceive can put a risk on the relationship. Make sure to be there for each other during this difficult time. 
Taking a vacation is good for time out, relax your body and mind. Getaway from the city and go travel. It be great for a honeymoon for two persons.

There are things that you can do in order to boost your body's fertility. If you and your partner have been trying to get pregnant for more than 6 months, set an appointment with your doctor. He or she should be able to assist you further in your trying to conceive journey.

Popular Korean skincare product, Ginkgo Natural, is finally available in Malaysia through the local e-mall
 
In a time where the weather is erratic in Malaysia, Korean-made Ginkgo Natural promises to nourish the skin to keep it feeling fresh and lively. The Ginkgo Natural range is one of many prestigious products, backed up by research and certified patents. This drive for quality is one of the reasons for their establishment in over 20 countries such as China, Japan, USA and now Malaysia.

Ginkgo Natural is the best-selling all-natural range curated under the multi-billion dollar Korean cosmetic giant, Charmzone. This popular skincare brand is now brought to Malaysia’s shore by its sole distributor, CJ IMC - Korea’s leading cosmetic distributor and premium merchandiser.

11street, one of the largest e-malls in Malaysia, is proud to be the first in Southeast Asia to feature exclusively the range of Ginkgo Natural products to cater to the Malaysian market.


“Charmzone is very established in Korea, so it gives us great pleasure to partner 11street to feature our Charmzone’s Gingko Natural range for the very first time in Southeast Asia. Ginkgo Natural is one of the most popular Korean cleansing products that has hit strides in the Korean market through e-commerce. While e-commerce is already at its peak in Korea, Malaysia is still in its growing stage; therefore, it presents us with the perfect opportunity to tap into the Southeast Asian market through 11street to extend our products to lovers of Korean skincare in Malaysia. We believe we can achieve this through 11street, thanks to the enormity of its platform and Malaysians’ admiration towards Korean culture,” said Lee Yong Jin, Managing Director of CJ IMC Southeast Asia.

Bruce Lim, Vice President of Merchandising at 11street sharing an anecdote with the audience at the exclusive launch of Ginkgo Natural on 11street

Vice President of Merchandising for 11street, Bruce Lim said during the media event: “We are motivated by this partnership with Ginkgo Natural to provide high quality, prestigious and affordable beauty products for our consumers. As part of our recently launched ‘Shop The World’ campaign, we aspire to bring in more international products for our Malaysian market. Therefore, by bringing in renowned brands such as Ginkgo Natural, 11street sees an opportunity to build bridges between the brand and our consumers. We believe that Ginkgo Natural is a good fit due to its product efficacies, thanks to its all-natural ingredients. Ginkgo Natural is one brand that packs a silent but robust punch.”



Lee Yong Jin, Managing Director of CJ IMC for Southeast Asia introducing Ginkgo Natural for the very first in Southeast Asia through 11street

As part of the partnership, 11street will feature Ginkgo Natural’s basic skincare range, which encompasses three steps – cleansing, toning and moisturising. For the first step, Gingko Natural features the Cleansing Tissue for make-up removal, and the Cleansing Foam to clean off residue make-up and is suitable for all skin types. Meanwhile, the Ginkgo Natural Skin Toner helps tighten pores and balances skin pH after cleansing, to prepare it for the third step – moisturising. Ginkgo Natural suggests the use of its Essence to lock in moisture and promote skin repair, before applying the Emulsion in the day, or the Cream at night. The former leaves a light and lingering feeling on the skin, while brightening it up at the same time. The latter supplies skin with more moisture, yet making it feel light and fresh.


Using state-of-the-art technology, Ginkgo Natural effectively nourishes the skin, leaving skin soft and dust-free. Ginkgo Natural harnesses the anti-oxidative power of ginkgo leaves to nourish and protect skin against everyday stress and damaging environmental elements. The ECOCERT-certified Ginkgo Natural range is made up of 95% natural ingredients, and contains zero mineral oil components.

Agnes Lim, Malaysian actress and model who was present at the partnership announcement shared: “The products from Ginkgo Natural leave a fresh feeling on my face upon application. It certainly is a welcomed feeling, given the unpredictable weather conditions in Malaysia. The best surprise came in the form of the cleansing tissue, which is also Gingko Natural’s most sought-after product. It is ultra-soft, so it feels good on the skin and completely and effectively removes make-up. It is perfect for someone like me, who is always on-the-go.”


The full range of Ginkgo Natural products available exclusively on 11street
11street introduces special promotions for Ginkgo Natural products under 11street’s ‘Shop The World’ campaign, which runs from 1 March to 3 April 2017 with up to 65% discounts on Ginkgo Natural products and free shipping to West Malaysia.
