There is a film investment and production company made up of well-versed international level players and they are in full force to live up to their motto, "Proudly Produced in Malaysia by Malaysians for the World".After making his name in China’s movie industry where he spent 23 years, the time is ripe for Sarawak-born Jon Chiew to lend his expertise to the Malaysian film industry, leading him to set up Longhouse Films, an integrated film investment and production company that has set its sights on the region and beyond.Founded in 2019, Longhouse Films derives its’ name from the communal village house that is native to Sarawak, signifying different characters playing an important role under one roof, as reflected in Longhouse’s own company structure.Jon, who has worked with major studios like 20th Century Fox, Universal Pictures and Sony Pictures, is poised to lead his team in taking the Malaysian scene to greater heights on par with international standards.The founder and CEO has been involved in 20 films and counting, including producing China’s 2018 box office hit “Hello Mr. Billionaire” that raked in over 2.5 billion yuan (RM1,550,000,000).Another key person to Longhouse Films is their managing director, Dianne Tan, a corporate figure turned showbiz maestro with multi-disciplinary experiences who is responsible for enhancing the studio’s intellectual property rights, distribution networks, investments, and brand management.Longhouse Films may be a new kid on the block, but in just a short amount of time since its establishment, the experienced team behind the subsidiary of MLabs System Bhd is already occupied with a line-up of ongoing and upcoming projects.They will be working alongside director Adrian Teh, known for the 2018 blockbuster Paskal: The Movie, for his upcoming action film Bakara, which begins shooting in June this year and will make its way to theatres in the United States and China upon completion in summer of 2022.Longhouse Films is also involved in the investment and production of Ada Hutan, the directorial debut of Hairul Azreen which stars Zahiril Adzim; The Assistant featuring Syamsul Yusof and Hairul Azreen, as well as Malaysia’s sitcom My Ofis.

The premiere served as a medium of cultural exchange between Asean and China against the backdrop of COVID-19.On the global front, Longhouse Films is the distributor of “Monkey King: A Hero's Journey to the West,” which is slated for release in May this year. Produced by Jon Chiew, the animated film is directed by former Disney animator Chris Bradley with Marvel Studio character designer Walter A. McDaniel as art director.Other productions in the pipeline include a Korean idol chasing romcom “Transit Tour”, and Chinese animation “The Legend of Er Lang” with distribution rights secured for the series adaptation of the best-selling Chinese novel by Ning Hangyi, “Foul of the Game Must Be Series,” as well as a romance series set in 1980s China, “Dear Mayang Street.”Longhouse Films is also set to work on several upcoming titles, including one of the most anticipated movie sequel of “Hello Mr. Billionaire” which is set to be released in 2022, “Hello Mr. Actor” starring well-known Chinese actor Shen Teng.The long list of works is a testament to Longhouse Films’ capacity and capability to advance the development of the film industry in Malaysia onto the international stage.

How to Keep Your Favourite Clothes Looking “Brand New”

Have you ever had someone commenting on how your favourite top looks “beaten up?” You enjoyed wearing it so much that it has started looking worn out from all the regular washes. We all own clothes that have a special place in our hearts. For example, your cardigan which was a birthday gift from mom or that work blazer you bought with your hard-earned first salary. The emotional connection and the money you put into these clothes are what makes them special. No doubt that these clothes are definitely worth the investment. But have you ever wished it lasted longer?It’s time to evaluate your Cost per Wear (CPW), the total cost of the item divided over the estimated times you’ll wear that item. For example, if you spend RM100 on a new dress and use it 100 times, the CPW is RM1. However, if you only wear it 10 times, the CPW is RM10. Lower CPW translates to a better investment of your money. And the longer your clothes last, the more you use it and the more value you get from it. Extending the lifespan of your clothes will not only benefit you financially but also reduced consumption minimises environmental impact in the long run. Let’s be real, there is no way you can keep your clothes forever – but the least you can do is take care of them and expand their lifespan for as long as you can. How would that be possible, I hear you ask?Give Your Laundry Some Attention1. Wash clothing with metal separately. Metal such as buttons and zippers often find their way into the wash to become seriously hot in the dryer. This can lead to scorching and melting on other clothes. 2. Consider a washing machine with an intelligent care feature like LG’s AI DD™. AI technology will pick the right setting for you.In the past, doing your laundry may have been time-consuming. But, with the LG washing machine, your laundry can be done in just 39 minutes. The TurboWash™ 360 feature of its latest washing machine cleans your clothes in a shorter amount of time. Thanks to the four directions of 3D multi nozzles, it covers a full 360 degrees of washing - it doesn’t leave even an inch of your clothes unwashed.LG ensures that you get these innovations at no expense. The LG AI DD™ washing machine line-up comes with bigger capacity without taking up more physical space with the laundry room. This includes bigger drum capacity that will allow you to wash more clothes in the same washer size. More clothes can be washed in a shorter amount of time? Sounds like a sweet deal to me!Practice Good Storing HabitsThe way you keep your clothes can also affect their lifespan. We must remember that proper clothes storage helps with keeping clothes looking brand new. Here’s how you can step up your storing game:1. Button up buttons and zip up zippers. Sharp zipper teeth, studs and even buttons sometimes catch against other clothes and cause damage. 2. Invest in good hangers. Wire and plastic hangers can stretch the shoulders of your garments and when you wear them, it can look awkward. Consider wood, velvet or plush hangers that can help your favourite outfits stay in shape.3. Think cool and dry. Storage with excess moisture and heat can encourage the growth of mould on your clothes. Clothes can collect dust when left untouched for some time. Don’t fret because LG’s washing machine with Steams™technology can remove allergens up to 99.9% such as dust mites that can cause allergy or respiratory issues. No more sneezing up a storm when you wear your favourite clothes. Now, you have these wonderful tips that would help preserve your favourite piece. People may want to think twice about calling your favourite clothes “shabby” because when you take better care for them, they will be fresh and clean as the day you bought them!

This new special BABY-G collaboration is just the thing for camp and leisure carry.CHUMS started as an outdoor brand back in 1983 when the founder, who was also a river rafting guide in Utah, got the idea of making an original eyewear retainer to keep his sunglasses from falling into the river. Since then CHUMS product range keeps expanding not only in eyewear retainers, but also including camping gears, apparel and bags & accessories. All products are created under the same simple concept: Fun, Quality and Friendly. CHUMS continues to develop new products that will amaze you in daily life.SpecificationConstructionShock-resistantWater Resistance100 metersWorld Time29 time zones (27 cities + coordinated greenwich mean time), daylight saving on/offStopwatch1-second stopwatchMeasuring capacity: 59'59Measuring modes: Elapsed time, split time, 1st-2nd place timesCountdown TimerMeasuring unit: 1 secondCountdown range: 60 minutesCountdown start time setting range: 1 to 60 minutes (1- minute increments)Others: Auto-repeat, progress beeperAlarm5 daily alarms (incl. 1 snooze alarm); hourly time signalOther FunctionsFull auto-calendar; 12/24-hour format; LED light (Super Illuminator) Selectable illumination duration (1.5 seconds or 3 seconds), afterglowAccuracy at Normal Temperature±30 seconds per monthBattery LifeApprox. 3 years on CR1220GWR-B1000HJ special website:https://babyg.casio.com/asia-mea/en/products/chums/
