Yuna revealed that she went to a major music label who was looking to sign her. During the meet-up, she asked them if they could help to market her English songs and promote them internationally. Much to her disappointment, the company showed no confidence.

The label representative replied, “Yuna, no one will want to listen to your English music, just make Malay music”. Instead, the label had suggested for her to record 9 Malay songs and 1 English song for her album. “I thanked him and told him, ‘I’ll keep you updated’,” Yuna responded.

Flash-forward to 2020, Yuna has managed to make Malaysia proud with her record-breaking achievement overseas. In her subsequent post, the “Penakut” singer shared an inspiring quote that reads, “Your goals may sound crazy to others and that’s okay. Just don’t let yourself believe them when they tell you ‘You can never do it'”.

The singer also shared collaged photos of her numerous international stint (as seen above). Some of the images include herself with world-renowned superstars like Usher and Pharrell Williams, as well as pictures of her Billboard ads in New York and a screenshot of her appearance in “Late Night Show with Conan O’Brien.

In another news, Yuna is set to headline the finale of U Mobile’s “#GroovesWithU” online music festival, joining in the massive lineup of local artistes like SonaOne and Bil Musa.

The special performance will go live tomorrow (30th May, 8:30pm) exclusively via U Mobile’s YouTube.

Malaysian actor Riz Amin recently underwent a hair transplant treatment at a famous anaesthetic clinic in Kuala Lumpur, just a few days after Hari Raya celebration.

According to Riz (full name Norizam Amin Nordin), he has been planning to seek treatment for his ongoing hair loss problem since January this year.

Speaking to Gempak, the 35-year-old said, “Actually, I have been planning to do the treatment at the start of the year. However, the plan got pushed back due to filming commitments and we had the enforcement of the movement control order (MCO) after that.”

“The purpose for me to undergo the procedure was to treat my hair loss problem, especially at the front of my head. I’ve tried tons of products, but it only strengthened the existing hair roots instead of growing back the bald areas,” Riz further added.

The “Polis Evo” actor also revealed that a total of 4,083 strands of his hair were taken from the back of his head to be re-implanted at the front part, with each pieces of hair costs RM6. If you do the math, it’ll total up to RM24,500. Additionally, it will take about 6 or 7 months for his locks to grow back.

“For me, the investment is worth it for my appearance as well as regaining my confidence in acting,” Riz clarified, before adding, “Every person will have their own opinion. But for me, this procedure is necessary. It’s not that I’m stealing these hair from other people.”

Riz concluded, “I still have to seek periodic treatment at the clinic and continue to take prescribed tonics and medications. Hopefully this treatment will be a success within the next few months.”

All the best 🙂

Rumour has it that Tom Holland is currently self-isolating with his new girlfriend Nadia Parkes at his home in London.

Reports claim that the Spider-Man star, 23, and the 24-year-old English actress have been seeing each other for approximately 3 months now. Since word got out, Nadia has changed her Instagram account to private.

Here are a few fun facts we gathered from our sources:

1. Tom and Nadia met through their mutual friend actress Sophie Turner last year.

2. The actress got her big break on “The Spanish Princess” after completing her LAMDA drama school in London back in 2018.

3. She also appeared on “Doctor Who”, playing Claire Clairmont. The episode aired in February 2020.

4. Besides Mrs Joe Jonas, Nadia is also besties with another “Game of Thrones” star – Maisie Williams. They were pictured together during Sophie’s big bachelorette trip last June to Spain.

Tom was previously in a 9-month relationship with childhood friend Olivia Bolton. Their split was confirmed in April. So maybe things with Nadia Parkes can be seen as a fresh start?

In speaking about relationships, the Marvel actor previously shared that he isn’t interested in flings. “I’m definitely a relationship person. I’m not the fleeting type at all; it’s not my way of life,” he was quoted as saying.

Calling all travel junkies out there! We have good news in store for y’all.

Thailand and Japan are reportedly covering up to 50% of your accommodation fees for your next visit. This is to help the countries’ tourism sector that has suffered a significant decline following the Covid-19 outbreak.

Source: The Japan Times

Japan Tourism Agency’s Hiroshi Tabata told the press that the government plans to “allocate over $12.5 billion to a new holiday subsidies programme,” which could launch as soon as July. In this case, the country will debut discount coupons and vouchers to be used at local shops and eateries.

However, keep in mind that the deals will only apply to visitors who have made bookings via Japanese travelling agencies. Whereas for international tourists, the country currently has an international travel ban in place, prohibiting foreigners from entering. But rest assured that the programme doesn’t exclude foreign visitors to take part.

As for Thailand’s case, GirlStyle reported that the government is planning to offer travel packages and discounts ranging between 40 to 50% off by either July or the end of this year. Word has it that the country will begin lifting enforcement rules and allow travellers to visit the country again. For those who don’t know, the Land of Smiles is currently in lockdown until the end of June.

Despite no specific details being revealed for now, maybe you can consider the 2 aforementioned countries for your next vacation.

For the past few years, people have been eagerly anticipating the reopening of Resorts World Genting’s outdoor theme park.

Sadly, it has just been announced that the soft opening – which was originally scheduled in the 3rd quarter of this year – has now been postponed again. The Star reported that the new soft launch is now set in the 3rd quarter of 2021.

Source: Siva_wwc

Genting Malaysia Bhd explained that the delay is inevitable since construction work has been largely affected by the movement control order (MCO) over the past 2 months. The soft opening was supposed to feature 20 rides, including 4 roller coaster type of attractions, on its 26-acre site.

As development works on the outdoor theme park were affected by the MCO, the group is working on a revised timeline for the completion and opening of the outdoor theme park,” Genting’s management told the publication.

Gara-gara video ini, Fizi kini dibenci 😢 . Maafkanlah Fizi 🙏 . #fizi #upinipin

A post shared by Upin & Ipin | By Les’ Copaque (@upinipinofficial) on

<>

In the clip above, the character Mail mentioned the famous saying “Heaven lies beneath mothers’ feet.” Significantly impacted by the statement, one of the twins, Upin questioned, “If we have no mother?” to which Fizi blatantly replied that there is no heaven for those with no parent, much to everyone’s dismay.

As a result, production company Les’ Copaque’s official Instagram has been attacked by enraged viewers, especially from neighbouring country Indonesia. Whereas in Malaysia, many netizens have taken to Twitter to express their frustration and disappointment towards the cartoon character for his insensitive remark.

Additionally, Fizi ended up becoming a trending topic on social media even up until today (Thursday, 28th May) with over 210k tweets! Feel free to read some of the commentators’ reactions to the controversy below:
