ANNA SUI DESIGNS TRAVEL BAGS EXCLUSIVELY @GUARDIAN MALAYSIA

I love shopping and my favorite would be Anna Sui brands too, fall in love with the luggage! Happy that I was able to make it yesterday for launch the first time to the Trillion Kuala Lumpur.

Good news to Malaysians who love Anna Sui and love travel. Recognising that Malaysians love to travel and want to look and feel good while travelling, Guardian Malaysia has collaborated with Anna Sui to develop exclusively designed collection to delight our shoppers!


The Anna Sui Luggage Collection, comprising two trolley bags, one tote bag and one designer case, can be redeemed at attractive, discounted prices under its latest loyalty programme which starts tomorrow. Speaking at the programme’s launch today, Ms. Christina Low, Marketing Director of Guardian Health And Beauty Sdn Bhd, said: “Our chose to work with Anna Sui as she has a strong influence in both beauty and fashion which are highly relevant to our health and beauty business. It is also to bring aspirational brands at affordable prices to the mass market.’’


According to Christina, Anna Sui said the luggage collection was inspired by perfume, butterflies and roses and colours of bright pop art, fuchsia and orange, but each design was inspired by different events in her career.


The story behind the designs, as provided by Anna:
1. The 24-inch trolley bag: “The pattern comes from a Mid-century modern tea towel, with a barber shop quartet theme. It originally appeared in my Fall 2012 collection, which was inspired by the work of Charles and Ray Eames, and their collection of Folk Art Americana. We customized the print with Anna Sui slogans, perfume bottles and lipstick tubes.”

2. The 20-inch trolley bag: “The butterfly print came from dresses in my Spring 2009 collection. The colours of the original pattern were quite similar to the way they are on the luggage. Some of the butterflies have been replaced with bottles of my Romantica fragrance!”

3. Tote-bag: “The rose bordered stripe design was originally done-up in black and white, with red flowers for a dress in my Spring 2007 collection. It remains one of the most iconic Anna Sui prints. A runway shot of the dress is on the cover of my new book, The World of Anna Sui.”

4. Designer case: “The pattern is derived from various Anna Sui cosmetic boxes over the years.”

But there is more. Guardian is offering two limited edition Anna Sui Eau De Toilette (EDT) starting in November. The EDT, in handy size of 30ml each, are the Dreams Yellow, and La Vie De Boheme, both prized at RM99.00, inclusive of GST, and would be available in only 150 selected stores.


At the launch Christina said: “To meet our shoppers’ changing needs, we have been constantly refreshing our health and beauty product offerings, and continuously looking for creative campaigns that are relevant to the business to reward our shoppers.


“This exclusive collaboration with Anna Sui, we believe is a fitting way to thank our loyal shoppers. Her design and collection whether they are fashion or perfume, are sought after and much-loved by a wide spectrum of women.”


“We are confident that the luggage collection will be a winner with our customers,” she added.

-EDUCATE FOR LOVE-

Yesterday, I took time off to attend a meaningful event, it's related to poor family, orphanage and education for children. The Giving Bank joint hand and forces with Creight Event & Services
and the Ministry of Women, Family and Community Development aims to support the less fortunate children to school in year 2018.

A community educational fund raising project, organized by The Giving Bank together with Creight Event & Services and the Ministry of Women, Family and Community Development has organized an event under the theme of “Fashion for Love”. With a slogan, “Supporting Children to School”.

Is education so important??? We believe so.

These children are from a poor family background and their parents could not afford to send their kids to school. Because these kids are not being exposed to education, the chances of them learning and being able to feed themselves or being independent is relatively low. The cycle of poverty and the relation to being a less fortunate will never end and it will continue for generations to come.
The only way to fight this is to give the children hope, giving them an equal chance of education exposure, grow up well and leading them to decent employment. With such, the scenario will change to a positive structure.
 
Knowledge is Power. Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. Help those who need help in their education. Only by doing this will society progress, become harmonious and stable., said Dr. Janson Ang Founder of The Giving Bank.

The project is held with a simple objective. The mission is to raise funds from the public community to serve and cater 300 multi racial children in need. We believe everyone deserves an equal right to education. Going to school and seeking education is a very important element at every stage of growth. This will give the child hope and a chance to experience something that they’ve never experienced before and help them become useful members of the society. We are here together, to bring love and happiness to these children. We want to bring joy to them. We want this to be special and meaningful. We want them to know that many people out there are loving them.

We have started to build the team and its formation gearing towards the total planning since August 2017, and we have arrived to a stage in having our Press Conference yesterday gearing towards the main highlight in October 8th 2017 at HGH Convention Centre said Mr. Simon Goh, Founder of Creight Events.

We are raising the educational funds, and it will lead to the official giving ceremony. The solicitation of this total campaign will go to the respective schools having the headmaster and school PIBG committees to monitor. The beneficiaries of these 300 children will be able to use the funds to pay for their school fees, or to purchase items such as books, stationaries, school uniforms, school bags and shoes.

We have carefully picked and have selected 12 schools in total to work with and they are as below :
(1) SJKC Bukit Tangga
(2) SJKT Bukit Beruntung
(3) SK Bukit Beruntung
(4) SJKC Kalumpang
(5) SJKC Kerling
(6) SJKC Serendah
(7) SJKC Bukit Fraser
(8) SJKC Batang Kali
(9) SJKT Ladang Sg. Choh

Added on, Ms. Ivlyn Tan Director of Creight Event mentioned that, to give it a better boost and making the event further memorable, The Fashion for Love team has also alligned an agreement along with Octoprenuer College. We are committed with the support shown, to offer and provide
100 scholarships to the less fortunate community to study Diploma in Business for SPM leavers, whom could not afford to further their study. This is a non-bias offering and it will be shared through all race, ethnincity and genders across Malaysia. Anyone whom feels that they require this opportunity can speak to the committee. A process of interviewing and performing the due dilligence is required to ensure its eligibility based on our criteria.

The Giving Bank, also known as www.thegivingbank.com is an online charity fundraising platform in Malaysia. A NGO and a Non Profit Organisation with a mission to connect both the charity and
the public through the power of technology. The Giving Bank’s online fundraising platform enables the public to pledge their support or contributions through The Giving Bank website with just a click of a mouse.

"By helping to improve the living quarters of these children, orphans and the elderly, we believe we are empowering them to be more confident and eventually become self-sufficient." Mr. Lauridsen added.

It's first time Cold Storage have this event and kids have a good time at the event. Our first time to One Park too. Happy that my dear not working the day as he bring us along to go. One Park is just opposite One Utama Shopping Centre. Just park inside the mall and walk out there's the park. My dear knows where to park and he parked basement of GSC Cinema. I forgot to take the bag which I have packed the clothing inside to the car. I took the shoes bag and the food bag but not the clothes in bag that I plan that we changed before head to next shopping mall.

The park has a lake that we can see turtles inside. So fun that we plan to go again next year! Good family time together and it's priceless bonding moments with loved ones.

It's a long day indeed for us. After the event at about 1015am we left and dear went to buy food while we waited in the car in Damansara.

Putra LRT Subang Jaya to SOGO KL

It's Saturday, just coincidence that son does not have tuition so I tag him along to the Sogo KL for the DC Comics Super Heroes. It's our first time to go there, we took LRT, it cost RM4.10 for a pax, one way. When reach Masjid Jamek, we walk about 10 minutes to reach the mall we didn't know the way and I was looking at the Google Map too. The event starts time table 230pm to 430pm, we reached before 2pm and had lunch ourselves. The refreshment provided at event was cake, sweets and mineral water.

 The LRT Station if take from SS15 Subang jaya would takes 16 stations to reach Masjid Jamed. I didn't know that we can go to Bandaraya LRT. So next time can just from SS15 Subang Jaya to Putra Height then from there change train to Bandaraya. It is direct reach from there. So the journey I took with son was longer than usual I think.

Lots to see and shop at DC Comics Super Heroes but we didn't buy anything as we went there for the event. At Sogo, I find out that the Teh Tarik Place would only serve Roti Telur or Roti Kaya at 3 pm, which is consider hot plates at the menu.

It's a lot of walking on Saturday and when we back time is raining too. Lucky I have an umbrella for each of us. It was great outing with son as he didn't take LRT for a long time, as for youngest son not yet bring him as it's a long tiring journey. It's packed in LRT so don't think he will be feeling comfortable.

Many people heading to MATTA Fair too, well we didn't go as didn't play to purchase any package at the moments. Though we love to have a family vacation stay. Busy lifestyle and glad to spend a good day with my son as seldom we have a travel together by public transport. I thought of driving but then I am not good with the directions and I saw waze showed 40minutes to reach.

Not much choice of restaurants I see at the SOGO, KL so son and me had a quick lunch at McD.

How to Express Yourself at Work Without Being Disrespectful

It seems like there are new debates and conversations in the breakroom on a daily basis. And sometimes, while you would love to join in on the discussions, you can’t help but steer clear because you know that you can get pretty heated with your opinions. Fortunately, there are methods to learning how to express yourself at work without being disrespectful.

Follow Rules and Workspace Guidelines

Remember that there are rules and guidelines in place in every workspace. From discrimination laws, to common courtesies, you should take care to follow the rules and secured regulations of your office to avoid being disrespectful or downright hateful.

Be Aware of Others and Their Beliefs

The world does not, and has never, revolved around you and your beliefs. And no one else is any different. However, your opinions, like everyone’s, matter, so respect and be aware of others and their beliefs. Why? Because they should respect and be aware of yours.

Keep Your Opinions to Yourself Unless Asked for Them

When you are in an obvious discussion with someone, then you can express yourself and let your opinions fly in a respectful manner. However, when others are talking amongst themselves, don’t jump in with your opinions just because you felt the need to add your two cents. Wait to be invited and included into the conversation.

Avoid Getting Drawn into Gossip

Did you hear about so-and-so and what she did over the weekend? Or, how about this person from HR and the terrible mistake he made? Your viewpoint should be, “who cares.” Gossip is hurtful, regardless if the person you are talking about knows or not. The workplace, as you know, is rife with gossip, so steer clear of these conversations whenever possible.

Make Friends and Discuss Your Interests, Passions, and Goals

Chances are good that there are dozens of like-minded people in your office that share the same interests, passions, and goals as you. Don’t be afraid to make friends. Use your amazing conversation skills and open-book mentality to connect and interact with your coworkers. Then, if you feel comfortable, strive to take that friendship out of the office for a chance at a long-term pal.

Having debates, conversations, and expressing your opinion in an office setting can be a controversial, and even taboo, idea. However, by remembering to be respectful, you can dabble in workspace expression, and make a few friends along the way. When you can, make friends. Invite your coworkers to celebrations and fun events. Go big with a Chicago limo rental, or find some fancy way to have a great time with good people from your work atmosphere.

12 Things That Happy Women Do

To lead a happy life, one should be involved in various self-care habits. These are 12 tips for a woman to enjoy health and wellness.

Avoid any stress
Stress usually happens when you have a lot on your plate. When there are too many things going on in your life, it can put you under a lot of stress. Furthermore, greater the amount of stress ; greater is the risk of heart disease, infertility, diabetes, depression, anxiety, premature death and accelerated ageing.
1. Stress is a major reason why you get frequent headaches. Stress management is crucial for the betterment of your health, and it also makes you more productive in the long term. All we can do is find ways that make you feel relaxed and at peace and just stick to the ways.


Completely avoid dieting

It also decreases the risk of cancer, heart disease, diabetes7 and osteoporosis. Moreover, weight lifting does not just mean lifting weights; it also refers to activities like hiking, dancing, racquet sports, aerobics, and tennis. Walking, elliptical training machines or stair-step machines are some of the beneficial low-impact exercises.

Tests like pap smears and pelvic exams should happen at least once in 2 years from the time you turn 21. Whereas, and breast examination should be done once a year after you turn 40.
