The European Union Film Festival is back!

A cinematic journey through Europe with 19 award-winning filmsThe European Union Film Festival (EUFF) returns once more to selected Golden Screen Cinemas.

Through EUFF, we celebrate our cultural diversity. We put culture at the centre of our international partnerships around the world, including with Malaysia," said H.E. Maria Castillo Fernandez, Ambassador and Head of the EU Delegation to Malaysia."We hope that these films not only entertain, inspire and teach us about European culture but also open people's eyes to how both European and Malaysian people enjoy cultural diversity," she added. From left, Mr Matthias Vanheusden (Charge d’Affaires a.i, Embassy of Belgium to Malaysia), H.E.

KARTEL RECORDS JOIN FORCES WITH UNIVERSAL MUSIC MALAYSIA TO FORM DEF JAM MALAYSIA & DEF JAM SINGAPORE

Hip-hop in South-East Asia is about to enter the next frontier. On 17 September, Adam Granite, Universal Music Group’s (UMG) Executive Vice President, Market Development, formally announced that legendary Malaysian hip-hop label Kartel Records and Universal Music Sdn Bhd have locked arms to form a new entity: Def Jam Malaysia and Def Jam Singapore. Kartel Records is home to some of the most esteemed and prolific artists in the ecosystem of South-East Asian music. To have the legacy of artists such as Joe Flizzow, arguably the most important name in the tapestry of regional hip-hop, combined with the panoramic reach and resources of UMG, as well as the storied lineage of Def Jam Recordings, marks a new era for the scene and culture not just in Malaysia and Singapore, but for the region as a whole.Ensuring the credibility and integrity of the newly incepted Def Jam Malaysia and Def Jam Singapore, its organisational structure will see the Kartel vanguard taking up key regional leadership roles. The new appointments are as follows: Joe Flizzow as Managing Director, Def Jam South-East Asia; David Tee as Vice President, A&R and Commercial Def Jam South-East Asia and Yaniz Merican as Vice President, Talent Management & Marketing Def Jam South-East Asia. This managerial upper echelon also warmly welcomes Tang Eu-Jin as Manager, Talent Management & Marketing. He will steer Def Jam Malaysia as it recruits new talent into the fold, while aiding in the continued ascent of its existing artists.Already, Def Jam Malaysia and Def Jam Singapore has a spectrum-blasting array of talent in its inaugural stable: Joe Flizzow, SonaOne, AbubakarXLI, Caprice & the Badboii collective from Malaysia and ALIF, Fariz Jabba and Yung Raja from Singapore. And this musical firepower will only expand over time.Alif & SonaOneYung RajaAbubakarXLIJoe FlizzowFariz Jabba Caprice South-East Asian hip-hop is not an overnight phenomenon. It’s the sum total of all the struggles its artists have had to overcome and all the accolades they’ve amassed to validate the craft. The creation of Def Jam Malaysia and Def Jam Singapore is a powerful acknowledgment of that. As Joe Flizzow says, “For the last 20 years, a lot of sweat, blood and tears have gone into building what we can now call the ASEAN hip-hop industry. Def Jam South-East Asia represents the next chapter in my illustrious career and I am truly blessed to be part of this brand that has contributed so much and helped shaped the culture. It is time for South-East Asian hip-hop to be heard all over the world. It's time to create history”.

THE NORTH FACE: The Classic ICON Collection Reintroduced

Inspired by Mountains, Dressed for StreetsEver since its establishment in 1966, The North Face has been devoted to bringing the best apparel and gear to athletes and explorers — offering full and best protection for all types of outdoor adventures. Since the 1980s, the ICON collection was created to serve the needs of expeditions in the harshest regions of the world. Today, these products and styles still boast utmost technical functionality but have been adopted by top trendsetters, who have helped make them much-loved icons of American street culture.To celebrate the heritage of TNF’s ICON collection, Malaysia has released the reintroduced styles of the: 1990 Mountain Jacket, 1996 Retro Nuptse Jacket, 1995 Retro Denali Jacket and 1978 Base Camp Duffel on 13 September 2019 — and hopes to reach out to all urban adventurers who can explore wherever and whenever they want, through music, art and culture.1990 MOUNTAIN JACKET GTX II From mountain summits to the city streets, the reintroduced 1990 Mountain Jacket is an enhanced replica of our original version from 1990. Bold, iconic blocking in red, yellow and blue are now a distinct visual identity that has become popular among today’s street-fashion lovers.First introduced as part of an alpine system to protect climbers and mountaineers from extreme elements, the Mountain Jacket has become a standard for durable protective outerwear. This heavy-duty veteran is incredibly weatherproof and has been tested by our athletes in many hostile environments over the years, including Himalayan and polar expeditions.This retro-styled jacket is made of waterproof materials and mixed with silk taffeta and brushed tricot drop-lining to achieve a combined performance of breathability and warmth. The VISLON zipper belt is a double-layer windbreaker with snap closure, providing windproof support for outdoor activities.1995 RETRO DENALI JACKETSince it was first introduced in 1988, as a zip-in fleece to the Mountain Jacket, worn by pioneers Todd Skinner and Paul Piana on their first free ascent of the Salathé Wall in Yosemite, the Denali Jacket completely revolutionized technical fleece. Perhaps no single piece of apparel represents authentic outdoor culture more completely than the Denali. Its iconic blocking and bold styling have since made it one of the most recognizable and coveted fleece jackets ever. Since the 2000s, the Denali has been adopted as the campus uniform across America.Today, the 1995 Retro Denali Jacket follows the original iconic blocking and color designs, with woven overlays on the collar, chest and back of yoke and sleeves; and is compatible with the Mountain Jacket. The fleece fabric and the underarm gussets with pit-zip venting help to resist wind while maximizing breathability. With the VISLON® center front and hand-pocket zips, two secure-zip chest pockets and the woven hem with adjustable bungee cinch, outdoor trips and daily adventures are both comfortable and carefree.1996 RETRO NUPTSE JACKETSince it was first introduced in 1992, the Nuptse Jacket quickly became a part of every expedition around the world. Together with devoted outdoor travelers, the Nuptse Jacket witnessed some of the most challenging routes to be discovered and explored.In the golden age of the 1990s, New York’s booming street culture had become a new source of inspiration for the Nuptse Jacket. The excellent thermal performance and retro style was widely loved by trendsetters, while the hip-hop community made it a style statement.Today, built for mountain- and city-life to keep you warm and dry when it gets cold and wet, the Nuptse Jacket’s signatures include its boxy silhouette, original shiny ripstop fabric, iconic oversized panels, stowable hood and 700- fill goose down insulation.1978 BASE CAMP DUFFELThe legendary Base Camp Duffel was originally designed in 1978 as hardwearing, soft luggage crafted from vinyl laminated fabric. It was equipped to be hauled by porters, yaks and camels to every region of the world.With its iconic handles introduced in 1989 and its classic D-zip opening added in 1996, this Duffel easily became cemented on every expedition checklist.Today, the 1978 Base Camp Duffel is made from wear-resistant ballistic nylon. The bag’s 50-litre-volume body is equipped with improved detachable, adjustable, alpine-cut shoulder straps and a thick carry-bag handle, while a more ergonomic design minimizes contortions. The side-zip pockets are designed to store handy belongings such as a mobile phone and wallet; while the D-zip opening has a weather-resistant zipper flap; and the end-cap zippered compartment can store wet clothes, dirty shoes or extra gear without sacrificing volume.The classic ICON collection is exclusively available in :1.

She adds‘I have to say that Ultra Night Mode 2.0 is a life saver. Personally, I don’t like to turn on flash light as the picture will be unnatural and sometimes the intense flash makes our eyes uncomfortable, as if there’s a shadow in our eyeballs.

In summary, images stay bright and clear whether capturing bright city lights or dim country nights. Now, Ultra Night Mode 2.0 also works while taking Ultra Wide angle photos capturing more of the beautiful city night landscape.The A9 2020 is equipped with 16MP selfie camera while A5 2020 with 8MP selfie camera, both using AI Beautification technology for tailor-made selfies to better cater to different markets and beauty trends.
