Swiss luxury watchmaker Longines knows us well. Last year, the luxury brand surprised us by bringing one of its longest-running ambassador, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to the opening ceremony of its first Longines Boutique at Pavilion KL. How was the crowd? Let’s just say that people were dancing with joy, Bollywood style!
But now, jokes aside, the brand is bringing us yet another surprise as its latest ambassador, Eddie Peng is set to visit Malaysia. He’ll be making an exclusive appearance for the opening ceremony of a new Longines Boutique at Suria KLCC this Friday (7th Nov)!
Despite being relatively new as a Longines Ambassador, Eddie Peng is considered popular and well received alongside other Longines Ambassdor such as Aaron Kwok, Lin Chi-Ling, and Kate Winslet. He was born in Taipei but grew up in Canada, which allowed him to master multiple languages and learn more about the differences between the Eastern and Western cultures.
He is one of Asia’s greatest stars as he has previously starred in several prestigious films including “Unbeatable“, “Hear Me“, “Jump! Ashin” and so on. Recently, he was attached to play the iconic kung-fu master Wong Fei Hung in Chow Yin Heung’s “Rise of the Legend”, a film produced by famous Hong Kong producer Bill Kong. The film is said to be a revival of the classic martial-arts genre.
Having played so many different roles in the past, he is recognised as a versatile actor with highly professional preparatory work. His talent also earned him awards such as the Hong Kong Film Awards and the Taipei Golden Horse Awards.
Since Longines has always focused on its motto is “Elegance is an attitude”, Peng was chosen as the brand’s new Longines “Ambassador of Elegance” due to his charisma and attitude.
This isn’t the first time a brand’s ambassador has come to Malaysia as OSIM’s ambassador, Lee Minho and SK-II’s ambassador, Lee Yeon Hee were previously here to meet their fans. Wishful thinking but let’s just hope that Milkcow Malaysia will bring their ambassadors, Lee Jong-suk and Go Jun-hee to Malaysia too! 😉
So, do you wanna meet him or what? The full schedule is as follows:
- Date: 7th Nov (Friday)
- Time: 11am
- Venue: Longines Boutique, Suria KLCC 1F
