Another week, another whirlwind of totally EXTRA events! We were here, there and everywhere!

We tumbled over TUMI’s Fall 2023 collection, made it rain with HABIB’s new gold coin series, went loco over vivo’s new phone launch, made some noise for Jamal Abdillah, and MUCH, MUCH MORE! We were on the scene, and vibing like a boss! Just check out our social diary for this past week (don’t be jelly!):

TUMI Fall 2023 Collection Preview

We made a beeline for TUMI’s glorious pop-up at Ilham Tower, KLCC, for a preview of the brand’s “Essentially Beautiful” campaign for Fall 2023. We ooohed and aaahed over the new colourways of the iconic 19 Degree line, and gagged over the newly-launched Georgica women’s collection. The sensational bags and luggage included wheeled briefs, carry-ons and extended trip packing cases which showcased TUMI’s exquisite artistry and craftsmanship.

We were also treated to the premiere of the campaign’s slick videos, starring Formula 1 driver Lando Norris and pro-footballer Son Heung-min, among other illustrious personages. Click here to get the full scoop on TUMI’s Fall 2023 collection.

Jamal Abdillah Live In Concert PC

It’s been a while since music legend Dato Jamal Abdillah held a concert in Malaysia. So it was cause for celebration when the icon, known for many hits, including “Azura”, “Gadis Melayu”, and “Seroja”, recently announced that he’ll be back on stage for a solo concert in September! We were at the press conference where the legend himself revealed that he may also be doing a duet with another local legend.

The concert will take place at Plenary Hall, Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre on 9th September. Even though the show date is a month away, the singer is confident that he is ready to wow the crowd, as he always does. Tickets are now on sale and if this concert goes well, both Jamal and the organiser said that they might add a second date! So if you want to enjoy more of his enchanting voice, be sure to secure those tickets and be on the lookout for the date of the encore!
