Our favorite time of the year is right around the corner and we’re so excited for all the holiday cheer this festive season brings!

With Christmas comes the many Christmas parties and get togethers that might require you to show up with a gift. Just in case you’re working on your “nice” list and need some help sourcing affordable gifts that you can find under one roof (Avenue K’s), we’ve got you covered:

1. Something (denim) blue 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Like diamonds, denim is forever… but not as intense. So, if you’re still thinking about what to get that new guy-friend of yours this Christmas, consider some denim (RM49-RM59) to stuff under the tree! Or get him this sporty hoodie since he’s always complaining about how cold it is in the office. Find these at Max Fashion.

2. Something leather (and sturdy)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lanyard card holders are often overlooked because we somehow always manage to get something that’s almost free to last us until it breaks (which is often). This bespoke leather lanyard card holder by Charles Berkeley (RM69) is hardy and will last for years. Get this from Leather Avenue for that office mate of yours who’s been using a lanyard that’s literally hanging by a thread. Or, get a travel padlock (RM49) for that colleague who’s boarding and alighting a flight every other week.

3. A good time and a memento


There’s nothing we love more than a gift that doubles as a pastime activity and a decorative piece. Get these puzzle piece for your desk buddy who could really use a pencil holder (RM77)/something cute for his/her work space from Puzzle Planet for RM77.

4. You Can Never Have Too Many Earrings or Shades

There are two main things we know about all the Divas in our lives – statement earrings and shades. If you find yourself having to play Secret Santa to the office Diva, know that you’ll always be able to charm her earrings and shades-of-the-week off with some new ones (RM39 for earrings, RM60 for 2 pairs of sunglasses). She’ll be thrilled to know that you’ve been paying attention to her needs and wants. Get these at Cotton On.

5. Beauty basics for The Beauty Junkie

If you know anyone who loves all things beauty, then you would know that she can never have too many lippies or mascaras. Bring the beauty junkie of your life’s Christmas tree dreams to life with the Damn Girl! Mascara Gift Set by Too Faced (RM60)! Alternatively, get her Sephora Collection’s pack of 6 Cream Lip Stains (RM60) – she’ll adore you for giving her a variety of shades to choose from. Find these at Sephora.

6. There’s no such thing as “too many beauty products”

Ask any girl or girl at heart that you know and they’ll all tell you the same thing – one can NEVER have too many exfoliators or serums! Especially when they come in adorable travel-sized packages. The Vita7 Energy Peeling Gel (RM59) and Teacell Ampoule (RM99) are useful to carry-on long-haul flights, day after drinking or whenever you need the extra energy. Get these at Koco Stage.

7. If it’s cute, I want it

Cute gifts are the best! Get your colleague who’s made it his/her mission to collect all things cute (while looking cute) a plush teddy (RM88) or a pretty desk humidifier (RM49) from Minigood.

8. Nifty gadgets from Gajeto

Ask any audiophile you know and they’ll tell you that a pair of good headphones is a necessity in bringing your favourite tunes to life. Get these headphones (RM88) for your bestie who’s been thinking of going from earphones to headphones but has no idea where to start from Gajeto! Get her a phone holder for her car (RM38) while you’re at it because you love her and want her to navigate safely while driving.

9. Every Blair Waldorf Needs A Power Blouse

Everyone’s got a Blair in our group, and she’s always making a statement with a power blouse or accessories. This red long-sleeved top from H&M (RM74.95) features a flattering plunging neckline and is perfect for the festive season. Get her a scarf (RM34.95) for when it gets a little chilly in the office, while you’re at it.

10. Some home necessities for the new homeowner

2019 really has been that year for a lot of us. With all the changes adulting brings, it’s really endearing to see how some of our friends have done that really adult thing of finally being able to purchase some real estate. If you’re still wondering what to get your friends who just moved into their new homes for Christmas, look no further than Bonzour Home for aesthetically pleasing ceramic sets (RM59) for the guest bathroom or a fragrance diffuser (RM39) for the living area.

In case you missed it, an advertisement to promote a sex supplement for men has caused a major commotion among the internet community recently.

For those who don’t know, the 1-minute and 17-second clip shows a couple having a casual conversation about sexual intercourse.

Lulus kkm ke ubat ni,marketing dia tahap apa ni gais .. tak malu ke

Posted by Awatni Channel on Saturday, November 16, 2019

As mentioned above, the video in turn has caused a quite an uproar among local netizens. In this case, most of them have slammed both the male and female actors for their sexually explicit approach in promoting the product.

Andika Putera – one of the actors in the clip – has since stepped in to clarify the whole issue by coming up with a lengthy statement on his Instagram. According to the fitness coach, the whole promotional video was merely for marketing purpose. He further added that both of them were provided with a script by the production team.

Video @sp3m_juzz itu adalah lakonan dan script diberi kepada saya dan @nadiraisaac . . Lovebite semua tu makeup sahaja. Tak betul pon. Bayaran kepada kami berdua pon sangat lumayan untuk 1 video yang panjang hanya 1 minit. Kalau korang tempat Dika pon, korang akan amik jugak tawaran berlakon untuk produk @sp3m_juzz ni. Siapa yang kenal Dika depan2 tahu Dika ni macam mana. . Sosial media dan real life sangat2 lah fake! Jangan nilai orang dalam media sosial. Dika pon tk pernah nak nilai orang dalam ig or fb je, sebab depan mata dika sendiri, dika dah jumpa ramai gila orang dalam ig lain, depan2 yaAllah lain sngt sngt. So, Don’t judge book by cover☺️

In addition, Andika claimed that both of them have received a substantial amount of payment for their appearance in the video. He then concluded the caption by saying, “Social media and real life are really really fake!” before advising everyone to “don’t easily jump to conclusions.”

After receiving further criticism from netizens, Andika came up with another post in a form of a video. The short clip shows him and fellow influencer – Nadira Isaac who also appeared in the controversial ad – apologising to everyone for their past mistake.

Not only that, the duo also assured everyone that they will be more careful in each and every step they have to take as an influencer as well as re-checking the dialogues in promoting and advertising a product.

Despite their intentions to clear the air, local keyboard warriors continue to bombard the couple with malicious comments. In this case, both Andika and Nadira were slammed for being desperate to gain cheap publicity. On the other hand, some also suggested them to ask for forgiveness from God instead of the public.

If you are curious, here are some of their comments:

Andy Lau (刘德华) made headlines this week after rumours circulated that he had a falling out with a younger star while on set.

China Press claimed that the 58-year-old actor was fed up with Chinese singer-actor Xiao Yang for behaving like a diva while filming their upcoming movie, “Sheep Without A Shepherd”.

Andy Lau

The drama first started when the actors on set couldn’t nail a particular scene, much to the dissatisfaction of the director. This slowed production as the scene had to be filmed multiple times. As such, Xiao Yang allegedly drag the day longer when he kept reapplying his makeup.

Since production crew had to accommodate to the younger actor’s demands, Andy was left standing at the side with his props while everyone waited on Xiao Yang. This apparently pissed the seasoned star and a fight broke out. Some even claimed that the duo had to be pulled apart.

After the news caught fire, Xiao Yang issued a statement on his Weibo saying:

“Brother Hua (the nickname Lau is known for) has been an icon in the film industry. I am extremely grateful to have an opportunity to be in the same production as he is. What was described in the article, about me acting like a diva in front of a superstar, is not true at all.”

The studio has also come forth to deny the rumour saying that the viral clip of them ‘fighting” was taken during filming and is part of the movie’s plot, before adding that they can’t comment any further to protect the film’s storyline.

It’s that time of the year again. When some of the biggest names in the music industry come together in one room to celebrate one of the most prestige award in the music business, The GRAMMYs. That is still going strong even with it being 62 years down the road.

Among the usual candidates that we expect to see in the award’s nominations, we’re also introduced to a crop of fresh talents. Some require us to Google search about what they’ve done. So before the celebration start on 27th January 2020, let’s get to know more about some of these talented first time nominees:

1. Lizzo

GRAMMYs

The “Truth Hurts” singer is the most nominated singer in the upcoming GRAMMYs with eight in total. The most interesting of those nominations is for best new artist. This is because the 31-year-old has been in the industry for years, debuting with her album “Lizzobangers” back in 2013. But it seems she was only recognise via her newest album “Cuz I Love You”, that includes her hit single “Truth Hurts” that was actually released in 2017.

2. Billie Eilish

Being such a common name already, it’s hard to believe the California native is just receiving her first GRAMMYs nomination. But with the runaway success of her third and latest album, “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?”, GRAMMYs voters can ignore her no more. Thus, making her the youngest ever artist to receive nominations in all the major award categories at the age of just 17.

3. Lil Nas X

GRAMMYs

What a year the “Padini” singer has had; setting records with his hit single “Old Town Road” with country star Billy Rae Cyrus, winning multiple awards at the Teen Choice Awards, MTV Video Music Awards and Country Music Association Awards. We can’t imagine him going home empty handed at the GRAMMYs.

4. Meek Mill

The 32-year-old rapper started his journey with the 2012’s album titled “Dreams and Nightmares”. Which lead him to a successful career, despite being thrown in jail for several years. His latest album released in November of last year, “Championships”, was nominated for best rap album of the year.

5. Maggie Rogers

The singer first gain public notice in 2016, when a video of her playing her song “Alaska” caught the attention of Pharrell Williams. Her latest album “Heard It in a Past Life” has since blew up, giving her the nomination for best new artist category.

6. Ty Dolla $ign

The rapper, 34, has released a host of albums throughout his career and has now only received one Grammy nomination with the song “Midnight Hour” which he performed with Skrillex and Boys Noize.

7. Rosalía

GRAMMYs

The Spanish singer is quite a popular figure back in her home country, where she won multiple awards for the work she did in her two studio albums and countless singles. This is her first ever nominations as she is included in the list for best new artist and best latin rock, urban or alternative album.

8. Gucci Mane

The 39-year-old has a rap career that spans over 15 years with 15 albums, 7 EPs and 84 singles. But, his collaboration with fellow first-timer Lizzo in “Exactly How I Feel” has earned him his first Grammy nomination for best R&B performance.

9. The Cranberries

The Cranberries, the Irish band that is best known for their hit song “Zombie”, has just received their first Grammy nomination for their 2019 album “In the End”. The album includes vocals from the band’s former lead singer, Dolores O’Riordan, who tragically died in 2018.

10. Tyler Childers

This singer-songwriter has a unique brand of music mixing country, folk and blues genre into one. One of his recent song, “All Your’n”, was then singled out for a Grammy nomination for the category of best country solo performance.

11. Lewis Capaldi

Don’t be fooled by his looks as the British singer is just 23 and now has a Grammy nomination. His song “Someone You Loved” is set to compete with stars like Taylor Swift’s “Lover” for the song of the year category.

31 years ago. I had no mortarboard. No robe. No flowers. Just a six-year-old me, wearing my torn out shoes going in front of the class to receive a certificate for completing my kindergarten studies. I didn’t even know what happened. At that moment, I just wanted to get over it and go out to play with my friends. I remembered some kids are crying. I was not. Only that I was laughing at them. Suddenly I was given a friendly slap at the back of my head. It was my mum. Pulling my ear to one side, telling me not to be such a rascal. She said some of them cried because their parents couldn’t make it. Only then I appreciated my family for being there, even though it was just a simple end of year prize giving ceremony. Certainly not a convocation. I went home. With my cert at one hand. And a 10 cent Popsicle on the other hand. It was a gift from dad. That’s all. We went home happy. Today I went to my son’s kindergarten ‘convocation’. If I wasn’t careful, I thought my son graduated with a bachelor’s degree already. Full graduation robe. Rehearsals. Performances. And most kids coming down from stage were given flowers. Maybe the time has changed. But me and my wife had the same smile like when my parents had for me 31 years ago. Kingston did me proud. He got two awards. Haha, despite not significant, an award is still an award. He is certainly better than me when I was his age. He got an award for spelling. I couldn’t even spell ‘spelling’ when I was six. Joke aside. Seeing him went up stage to collect his award gave me goosebumps. I never had a chance to graduate with a university degree. I hope one day, I can live to see my two sons wear the real mortarboard . #gratefultoteachers #gratefultoheadmistress #gratefultoschool 今天是大儿子Kingston的幼儿园毕业典礼,现在的学习环境和30年前真的不一样了,那个物资匮乏的年代,没有鲜花没有四方帽,很多家长甚至忙着工作没有时间出席孩子的毕业典礼,而我们就这样长大了。 如今,时代进步,看着孩子们在一个更为健全的教育制度和环境下学习很是欣慰,嘉谦这个好动的孩子可以拿到听写奖和表现优秀奖,真的觉得很骄傲,感谢校长、班主任、各位老师循循善诱的指导。👍

In the post, he opened the caption by reminiscing his younger days. According to the world champion, he remembered on how he was such a “rascal” back in the day. “Today I went to my son’s kindergarten ‘convocation’,” Chong Wei wrote, before jokingly adding, “If I wasn’t careful, I thought my son graduated with a bachelor’s degree already.”

Additionally, he pointed out that he is super proud to have an intelligent son like Kingston. “Kingston did me proud. He got two awards. Haha, despite not significant, an award is still an award,” shared the badminton legend.

Chong Wei further added that Kingston is “certainly better than me when I was his age. He got an award for spelling. I couldn’t even spell ‘spelling’ when I was six.” At the time of writing, the Instagram post has received over 69,000 likes.

Lee Chong Wei

The comments section has been flooded with congratulatory messages by Chong Wei’s followers. In addition, a few cybernauts have came forward and posted various hilarious reactions to highlight the fact that Kingston’s parents are popular public figures.

“Imagine telling your friends that your father is THE Lee Chong Wei,” one netizen wrote. Another user responded by writing, “And your mother is Wong Mew Choo, fuhh.” Check out other comments here:

  • “If you were to be assigned to make a presentation about your dad. It is easy, just ask your teacher to Google and details are there.”
  • “Can you picture Lee Chong Wei picking up his son from school?”
  • “You will follow your dad’s footsteps someday :)” 

Congratulations to Kingston for graduating! We hope you will be able to make your family proud with your further achievements ahead.

Cecilia Cheung (张柏芝) celebrated her youngest son Marcus Cheung (張禮承)’s 1-year-old birthday earlier on Monday (18th November).

The usually-private mum decided to bless her followers on social media with plenty of videos of the tiny tot, in conjunction of his big day. However, a guest at Marcus’ birthday celebration has caught netizens’ attention.

Source: Google Images

This has led to many assumptions on whether the male foreigner was present at the event because he has a special connection to the birthday boy. Is he truly the mysterious baby daddy that people have been trying to uncover?

Some fans pointed out that the 39-year-old actress also posted the animated poster of Baby Boss on her Instagram account. Since Baby Boss has blonde hair, is Cecilia hinting that Marcus’ dad is a foreigner?

Before Cecilia’s pregnancy, the actress had previously posted a series of candied snapshots of herself with a few foreign men – one of them was named Leo. When word got around that she was with child, those photos were already removed from her social media. This drew a ton of suspicion.

While her older sons Quintus and Lucas take after their father’s surname Tse (Nicholas Tse), Cecilia gave Marcus’ her surname instead and named him Cheung Lai Seng (张礼承). Word on the street has it that the actress and the unknown biological father parted ways before the baby was born.

To everyone’s surprise, BTS (방탄소년단) was not listed in any of the main categories. For those who don’t know, the 7-member K-pop sensation came out with their record-breaking hit “Boy With Luv” with American songstress Halsey this year.

Fans were left fuming following the announcement. Despite the fact of the group’s success beyond their home country, fans started to wonder on the real reason for their GRAMMYs nomination snub.

Not only that, even Halsey herself was upset upon knowing the news. She posted a tweet to point out her disappointment that the “biggest song” of her career didn’t make it on the list.

However, at the time of writing (Thursday, 21st November), the post is nowhere to be found. The “Closer” singer has since asked fans to stop wasting their energy on this frustration.

Worldwide fans then took to Twitter with the hashtag #ThisIsBTS to show their never-ending support to them as well as voicing out their opinions. In addition, Soompi reported that die-hard ARMYs have sent BTS’ Korean discography back in the Top 1000 of the iTunes Top Albums chart in the United States, just hours after the official announcement was out.

Check out their tweets below:

All in all, we hope BTS fans will be able to accept the official results with open hearts. In the meantime, check out the full list of the 62nd GRAMMY Awards nominees here.

The new “Charlie’s Angels” reboot has been out for almost a week. Passing by their opening weekend, that’s supposed to be their biggest money-making period. But recent reports coming out from the theaters suggest that the film is bombing.

According to Box Office Mojo, the Elizabeth Banks-flick only managed rack up a disappointing $27.9 million globally over the weekend and only $8.6 million in the US. Meaning that the film that had a $48 million production was a major box office flop. Resulting in the director giving a very controversial statement regarding the film’s flop.

In speaking to Australian Newspaper Herald Sun, the 45-year-old blamed male audiences for not seeing the film. She stated that they’re not likely to see female-led action movies and only interested in comic book movies because it is a “male genre”.

They’ll go and see a comic book movie with ‘Wonder Woman’ and ‘Captain Marvel’ because that’s a male genre,” she said. “So even though those are movies about women, they put them in the context of feeding the larger comic book world, so it’s all about, yes, you’re watching a ‘Wonder Woman’ movie but we’re setting up three other characters or we’re setting up ‘Justice League’,” she continued.

She would later add that, “If this movie doesn’t make money it reinforces a stereotype in Hollywood that men don’t go see women do action movies.”

It was these kind of comments that managed to rub audiences the wrong way. Leading many to take to Twitter to criticise the director for shifting the blame on sexism instead of the film’s quality and marketing.

Here are some of the Tweets:

While many disagreed with her statements. There are still quite a fair number of people that spoke out in defence of the “Pitch Perfect” star, agreeing to the American actress’ controversial opinions.

Here are some examples:

So what do you think, does Elizabeth Banks has a point or is she just searching for something to blame? Feel free to let us know about your thoughts in the comments below.

This will be the 3rd charge made against the 28-year-old celebrity. In case you’ve missed it, he was also faced with 2 theft charges made against him. On 3rd September this year, he was accused of stealing an amount of money from an Indonesian actress.

He faced further charges for stealing a box of Marlboro cigarette and a lighter worth SGD15.60 (RM47). The incident was committed at a Starbucks cafe in Plaza Singapore back in August 2019.

Re-mentioning of all 3 cases involving the “Meh Sandar Pada Aku” actor is scheduled to take place on 9th December 2019.
