We hope everyone had a great Chinese New Year as there was so much that happened in Vivacity Megamall. We saw lions prancing and dancing, leaping from pole to pole, martial artists showcasing their skills to a dragon flying around at the Alfresco area. It was a Wang’derful occasion for many. Yummy and mouth-watering beef rendang, satays and ketupats. The howl of a warrior in motion and the cheer of the ladies. This only signals one thing. Hari Raya and Gawai. This edition of Vivarious should be very obvious. Enjoy the little facts we have collected for you all, as many do not know the in-depth meaning behind the celebration. Both celebration is only 2 weeks apart from each other, hence we decided to put both together, which surprisingly does complement each other. In this issue, we collected and compiled the latest fashion trend in the market as well as small yet powerful gadgets available in the market. The past months has been exciting with many new faces opening their brands inside the mall. From savoury Thai food brought to you by Soi19 to sweet delights frozen yoghurt by YOGU, high tech watches from GARMIN to simple and good quality home products by MINISO, there are more selection for shoppers to choose. Love was in the air as the 3rd 38 Media Wedding Expo was held here, with many hotels as well as bridal studios taking opportunity to collaborate and promote themselves to lovely lovebirds who are planning for their wedding, and those who signed up were in the running to win lucky prizes from the organiser, 38 Media. There is more in this edition of Vivarious. Have fun reading it and before I sign off, I would like to wish all our readers Selamat Hari Gawai, and also Selamat Hari Raya.

ISBN: 9786020378435 | Author: Monika Anggreini | Price: RM45.00

“There have been so many books written about Donald Trump and his presidency that Michael Wolff ’s latest offering should have flown under the radar when it was due to be published in January 2018, until the unthinkable happened: the publisher of the book received a cease-and-desist letter from the Trump’s lawyer to block the publication of the book. The book industry exploded: the publisher pushed forward the publication date and the White House claimed that the book is filled with fabrication and lies, while the rest of the world struggled to get their hands on the overnight hottest book in town...”

“While it is easy to say “women can do anything a man can do”, the slogan feels empty when considering that many challenging and interesting jobs are male-dominated. After all, you can’t be what you can’t see. Which is why it is always heartening and emboldening to hear stories of women smashing the glass ceiling to pave the way for others to fall into their footsteps, and closer to hope. Captain Monika Anggreini of AirAsia is one of the trailblazers of this movement...” Review by: Wowzer Huda
