Casio Lightweight G-SHOCK Delivering Support for Multiple Sports

Casio Malaysia has released GBD-H2000, the new addition to the sports-driven G-SQUAD line in the G-SHOCK family of shock-resistant watches. The new GBD-H2000 delivers support for multiple sports and boasts a lighter weight to ensure an even more comfortable fit. The new watch will be available in four models.The shock-resistant GBD-H2000 is equipped with GPS functionality and six sensors to provide support for a wide range of sports activities, yet is 38% lighter than the previous model, the GBD- H1000. Casio achieved the lighter weight design by creating a more compact case with a built-in GPS antenna and carbon fiber-reinforced case back. The result is an even more comfortable fit on the wrist.The new watch is equipped with GPS functionality and an optical sensor to measure heart rate, as well as a compass, altitude/air pressure sensor, thermo sensor, accelerometer, and gyroscope. These high-end technologies enable measurement of distance, speed, pace, and more to support activities from running and biking to swimming.Training analysis functions are included along with these activity measurements. Algorithms developed by Polar Electro Oy, a pioneer in the industry which has spent nearly 50 years perfecting the art of personalized guidance in fitness, sport and health, are used to measure the burden on the heart and lungs, analyze ratios of energy used separately for carbohydrates, proteins, and fats, and perform sleep tracking. Pairing the watch with the dedicated CASIO WATCHES app allows users to review training data from the watch in greater detail, accessing activity logs, advice on improving sleep and more. Solar-assisted charging is also included to improve ease of use, offering time display powered by solar charging* even when the battery runs low.* When charged about eight hours every day under indoor fluorescent lighting (500 lux), and charged at window side on a sunny day for two hours in a week (10,000 lux).The case, bezel, and band are made with biomass plastics, an eco-friendly material produced using raw materials from castor seeds and corn. ModelColorsGBD-H20001ABlack × OrangeGBD-H2000-1A9Black × YellowGBD-H2000-1BBlack × BlackGBD-H2000-2Blue × OrangeSupport for multiple sportsSupport for eight different activities is included: running, biking, open water swimming, pool swimming, walking, trail running, gym workouts, and interval training.

Rockers and headbangers, this is what you have been waiting for – the chance to shake it up in Let’s Rock 3, presented by klpac and The Actors Studio Seni Teater Rakyat, from 30 March to 2 April 2023 in its 504-seater hall Pentas 1.Now, Let’s Rock is no ordinary rock concert. It brings together 60 dynamic and talented musicians and performers on one stage to create the best possible concert experience plus a sound unlike any other.Crowd favourites Fuad of Kyoto Protocol and AIM nominee Bihzhu are back as headliners. They’ll be joined by vocalists and fellow mentees – Kathleen Roshene, LeonieTunez, Hannah Ahmad and Sean Kok – gems discovered through the concert’s open audition process and part of the production’s mentorship programme. It is a bold move but this injection of fresh blood is one of the reasons Let’s Rock 3 is so special and a reminder for all of us to dream big.Vocalists aside, what makes this concert stand out is its unique combination of a four-piece with 20-strong The klpac Symphonic Band under the baton of Music Director Cheryl Mah, 30-member YCA Chorus under Chorus Master Mak Chi Hoe and Ui Li as the Arranger and Co-Music Director.The director Ian Chow quoted “The concert is a smorgasbord of different rock genres that I grew up with and enjoy listening to. From folk rock to grunge, industrial rock to alternative, arena rock to hard, we have got it all. I believe the curation will very much resonate with rock music fans and give music lovers a truly diverse music experience”.Groove to the 17-song programme comprising classic hit songs from the 70s to the 90s (a time when Walkmans and Discmans were still a thing) such as Bryan Adams’ smash single “Summer of '69” and Goo Goo Dolls’ “Iris”.The concert then crosses over to the New Millennium with chart-toppers and rock anthems like Bon Jovi’s “It’s My Life” and Green Day’s “Wake Me Up When September Ends”. Recent hits like Christina Perri and Jason Mraz’s “Distance” plus Ed Sheeran’s very personal “Tides” also make the cut.There are plenty more names to keep die-hard rock fans happy such as Smashing Pumpkins, Pearl Jam, Credence Clearwater Revival, My Chemical Romance, Third Eye Blind, Alanis Morisette and more.Best of all? You do not need to stand in line for hours or make the long trek to a stadium only to worry about how you’ll get home after because it is all happening at klpac. If you want to bring your kids, you can. If you want to bring your parents, you can. It is a rock concert where everyone can enjoy good music.Get ready to experience it in A Notional History this week (2 - 5 March) and transport yourself to one of the critical moments in the country's history.Let’s Rock 3 is supported by the Young Choral Academy Chorus and licensed by MACP.

Creating long-lasting memories with loved ones and fueling art and film enthusiasts from all walks of life, Malaysians can look forward to the much anticipated world-class pop-up museum  - ‘The World of Tim Burton.’  Organized and presented by Toybox Projects Sdn. Bhd. - a multi-entertainment and cross-media multinational company, the event acts as an initiative to bring greater awareness to the Malaysian tourism sector through entertainment and draw in more and more local and international visitors in 2023. The World of Tim Burton has paved waves across prominent countries around the world since its debut in 2009,  including China, South Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, Germany, Mexico, Belgium, Prague, and more. This year, Malaysia has been officially added to the line-up to experience this world-class event. Toybox Projects has dedicated their utmost hard work and efforts to the investment, negotiation, planning, and execution of such a world-class event in hopes for Malaysians to experience one of the world's most demanded forms of entertainment.  As a result, Malaysia will be the first and only Southeast Asian country to play host to The World of Tim Burton and last Asia stop in the pop-up museum world tour.YB Khairul Firdaus Akbar Khan, Deputy Minister of Tourism, Arts & Culture (MOTAC) shared, “We are honored to be the only Southeast Asian country to play host to this world-class pop-up museum  - this speaks volumes about Malaysia’s excellent creative sector and I am positive that this will definitely inspire and invigorate current and aspiring filmmakers, artists and creatives to showcase what our Malaysia Truly Asia has to offer.”Visitors will have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity  to take a deep dive into Tim Burton’s personal archive which represents the artist’s creative output from childhood to the present day, with over 500 drawings, paintings, photographs, sketchbooks, moving-image works, and sculptural installations focusing on the recurrent visual themes and motifs that resonate in the distinctive characters and worlds found in Burton’s art and films.Additionally, the pop-up museum will include 10 thematic sections  composed of paintings, drawings, photographs, videos, and media arts as well as a teaser into current Tim Burton projects provided to the visitors through the exact replica of Tim Burton’s personal work studio:SECTION 1: INFLUENCESTim Burton’s versatility and range, as well as the influence of his predecessors, are demonstrated in this section where the earliest works of the exhibition are found. Drawings from Burton’s childhood and early career pay homage to classic cartoonists and illustrators such as Edward Gorey, Charles Addams, Don Martin, and Theodore Geisel (Dr. Seuss). Burton’s class notes and sketches from his studies at the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) offer insight into his formal training. The substantial influences of Japanese kaiju (monster) movies, Expressionist Cinema, Universal Studios’ horror catalog, stop-motion animation master Ray Harryhausen, and suspense maestro Vincent Price are also revealed in these works.SECTION 2: HOLIDAYSThis prominent theme originates from Tim Burton’s upbringing in Burbank, California, a homogenous suburban neighborhood that came alive only during the holiday seasons. Representing a creative respite from dull monotony, this early influence is seen throughout his work—in the form of sincere appreciation as well as a satirical wink. Examples include his 1997 book of illustrated poems The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy and Other Stories (1997) and the stop-motion animated musical Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993) in which Halloween and Christmas are ghoulishly and gleefully linked.SECTION 3: CARNIVALESQUEThe theme of the “carnivalesque”—the mixture between comedy and the grotesque—is seen in Tim Burton’s films from Beetlejuice (1988) and Batman (1989) to Alice in Wonderland (2010) and Dark Shadows (2012) as well as in his personal drawings and paintings. These selections exemplify Burton’s treatment of the balance between the seemingly opposing genres of horror and humor. The imagery of twisting tongues, eyeballs wandering out of their sockets, and poisonous clowns—often accompanied by deadpan wordplay humor—alludes to this dichotomous theme.SECTION 4: FIGURATIVE WORKSThese drawings, paintings, and sculptures, unrelated to Tim Burton’s professional projects, are some of his most personal artworks. Burton depicts physical reality not as it appears, but how it is personally felt through a distortion of perspective and the human figure. Included in this section are Burton’s studies for Blue Girl with Wine and The Green Man, positioned alongside the final paintings which highlight Burton’s signature aesthetic.SECTION 5: MISUNDERSTOOD OUTCASTThe most recognizable theme of Tim Burton’s art and films is the archetypical—and perhaps autobiographical—“misunderstood outcast.” These sympathetic monsters are found in projects from the stop-motion animated short film Vincent (1982) to the Hollywood blockbuster Alice in Wonderland (2010). Included in this section are drawings and the concept maquette for Balloon Boy, a 22-foot site-specific installation that the Museum of Modern Art commissioned for its entrance lobby during the inaugural presentation of the Tim Burton exhibition tour. This original creation bears a melancholy countenance and embodies the characteristics of the artist’s beloved outsiders.SECTION 6: FILM CHARACTERSFor visitors who are well-acquainted with Tim Burton’s movies—from his first feature, Pee-wee’s Big Adventure (1985), to his latest, Dumbo (2019)—This section offers a deeper look into familiar characters and worlds. Paintings, videos, script notes, storyboards, puppets, and maquettes show how film characters progressed from ideas in Burton’s mind to the cinema screen.SECTION 7: POLAROIDSUsing a rare 20 x 24 large-format instant camera, Tim Burton produced several series of oversized Polaroid prints between 1992 and 1999. These personal photographs express visual themes and motifs that appear in his professional films. SECTION 8: AROUND THE WORLDThe spontaneity of Tim Burton’s creative process is highlighted by the works in this section.  Drawings made in sketchbooks and on hotel notepads and restaurant napkins are impulses of his restless imagination.  The worldwide travels that are necessary to the itinerant life of a film director—shooting locations, film festivals, publicity tours—provide inspiration and subject matter.  The resulting dream-like imagery of hyper-reality reflects Burton’s perceptions of the people and places encountered.SECTION 9: UNREALIZED PROJECTS These works from Tim Burton’s film, television, and book projects that were halted in various stages of development reveal the extent of his artistic output. Some of these projects never progressed beyond the beginnings of the ideation stage while other projects in this section were fully realized but did not incorporate any of Burton’s concepts in the final product. The drawings in this section provide a rare glimpse into previously unknown projects that affirm the continuity of the artist’s themes and motifs and also served as inspiration for the exhibition design of Burton’s art exhibition.SECTION 10: THE ARTIST’S STUDIOTim Burton is a solitary artist, constantly drawing, painting, and planning, working away in his studio. For the first time, a part of Tim Burton’s studio is replicated in the exhibition as a way for visitors to experience how the artist’s passion and artistic spirit come to life. The sketches and drawings on cork boards feature works relating to current projects, including those he created for his Seoul exhibition’s entrance sculptures and his new TV series project, Wednesday. Ms. Yuri Aizawa, President & Chief Executive Officer of Toybox Projects Sdn. Bhd and Organizer and Presenter of The World of Tim Burton said, “We have been known as a Japanese entertainment specialist. But this year marks our 10th anniversary and with one of our goals being to contribute to expanding the entertainment market in Malaysia as well as connecting with Japan and now to the world, we know "The World of Tim Burton" is the perfect one to bring in not only because of Tim Burton's popularity, creativity and the iconic style, which will surely bring in more tourists to Malaysia but also by bringing in this one of the kind and the first class pop-up museum, we hope to influence the Malaysian creative industry to expand its market.”Furthermore, fans of Tim Burton will be able have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to learn about the art of films through an exclusive virtual masterclass titled “Tim Burton’s Masterclass” hosted by Tim Burton himself on 14 April 2023 where he will tell his story on the art of films, his unique creative processes, and the road to becoming a prominent household name in the entertainment and film industry.This once-in-a-lifetime experience to immerse one’s self in the artworks of one of cinema’s most valued filmmakers will be available to the public starting tomorrow 21 March 2023 to 30 July 2023 and can be purchased at priced at only RM88 for adults, RM68 for children and senior citizens,  and RM48 for the OKU. In addition to this, visitors can also opt for a season pass (multiple entries to the exhibit) priced at RM498 or the VIP Bundle inclusive of a season pass, a master pass to the virtual Tim Burton’s Masterclass, The Art of Tim Burton book, and special signed merchandise for only RM1,500.* AFO Announcer - @Papi ZakFor more information on The World of Tim Burton, kindly visit:

Join the Game-Changer: AFA Superapp Digitalises the Malaysian Sports Experience

AFA Community is championing the digitalisation of sporting activities in the Malaysian community with the introduction of its new AFA Superapp — a sports community platform that lets users create and find activities, manage RSVPs in groups, book venues and pay seamlessly, earn loyalty points and redeem rewards, and enjoy deals from partners  — all at their fingertips. This effort to digitalise sports supports the core strategies that the Youth & Sports Ministry of Malaysia (KBS) and the National Sports Institute of Malaysia (ISN) have mapped out in order to make Malaysia an active nation by 2023. Co-developed by SegWitz, the AFA superapp has already garnered more than 150,000 users as of March 2023, booked over 500,000 hours played across 90 sports venues in 11 states - Kuala Lumpur, Selangor, Johor, Malacca, Penang, Terengganu, Kelantan, Perak, Kedah, Sabah and Sarawak and will continue to progressively establish a wider presence across the nation in the coming months.YB Hannah Yeoh, Minister of Youth and Sports, on the unveiling of the AFA Superapp said, “Sports has the ability to bring Malaysians together, transcending differences and uniting us in a common pursuit. Whether played for fun or in a competitive setting, sports has the power to engage and foster a sense of community. Hence, the launch of the new AFA Superapp has the potential to bring Malaysia’s sports industry to greater heights through digitalisation, while also providing easy accessibility to participate and promote a more healthy and active lifestyle amongst Malaysians”. Ahmad Faedzal, CEO of ISN shares his support for the superapp’s potential, “AFA Community is Phase One of six emerging sports technology startups with which ISN have shareholding and active participation. We are proud to support and stand along with this visionary team and believe that this platform will be a real game-changer for the sports community in Malaysia at all levels.” Designed to solve challenges that are commonly faced by sports aficionados who often struggle with traditional booking methods, the superapp will be rolling out much-awaited features in the coming months. One of which is an RSVP management feature which makes organising events a stress-free experience. It also includes a secure e-wallet, AFA Pay, for hassle-free booking transactions and tracking — making cost splitting easier than ever among activity groups - whether for badminton, futsal, or any of the 50 activities that will be listed within the app. Users can also collect points from using AFA Pay, and later on when joining or creating activities. These points can be used to redeem rewards and enjoy booking discounts from AFA Community’s partners. Samuel Siew, CEO of AFA Community said, “Everyone enjoys playing sports with their families, friends, and colleagues. However, coordinating RSVPs involving large groups can always be a hassle, not to mention the tedious payment-splitting routine at the end of each session. With AFA Superapp, we want to transform the way Malaysians play sports — our goal is to provide a seamless and enjoyable way for individuals to discover and organize group sports activities, classes, and events nearby. Users can also connect with others who share similar interests to play the sports they love together”. On a mission to become the leading, all-in-one platform for activities and engagement for Malaysian communities, AFA Superapp is looking to significantly expand its user base, venue, reward, and service partnerships by the end of 2023. To know more about the AFA Superapp or for partnership opportunities, visit, or follow AFA Community on Facebook, Instagram, Tiktok and Linkedin. From left : CEO and Co-Founder of AFA Superapp - Samuel Siew and AFO Announcer -  Linora Low. Download the AFA Superapp at or Google Play Store and iOS Apple Store.

For Her, By Her: Smthgood spotlights 8 women-owned conscious fashion brands this International Women’s Day

International Women’s Day, is one of the most exciting days of the year. This global holiday celebrates the cultural, political and socio-economic achievements of 8 women around the world.This year, the IWD campaign theme is #EmbraceEquity.  As you may know, fast fashion is constantly violating human rights and has a negative impact on the planet. Most of our garments have been grown and produced beyond our home countries where a majority of the workforce are women, who are often exploited and underpaid. We’re here to tell you that in this story, an empowered entrepreneurial community of women are committed to changing the fashion industry in their own unique, innovative ways.This March, profit-for-purpose conscious fashion platform Smthgood aims to empower women to express their individuality. To celebrate one of the best days of the year, the brand shines a spotlight on these women-owned conscious fashion brands on their platform.Tove and Libra (Hong Kong) - Tove and Libra was founded by Christine Chow. Working behind the scenes in the fashion industry Christine and co-founder Ivan could see how negligent and ignorant many brands and consumers were being to thoughtlessly create waste. As a working mom who enjoys discovering independent brands, Christine found a real lack of options for women similar to her in Hong Kong. Wanting to show how creativity and conscious manufacturing and consumption of fashion could come hand in hand, she decided to found Tove & Libra. Built on quality over quantity, and centred around ethical sourcing and production, their mission is to make fashion that’s better for both your closet and our planet. From left : Henley Ribbed Tee - Sage, Ruffle Sleeve Ribbed Midi Dress - Dark Taupe, Cutout MiniDress - Bright White, Multi-way Tank Top - White & Convertible Crop Pants - ApricotJim Weaver (The Philippines) - Founded in 2016, JIM Weaver Designs is the brainchild of four women, sisters Mischel and Isabelle; Jenica and Jenica (Kaw), friends who share the same passion to make art wearable through fashion. The four friends come from different backgrounds and experiences working hand in hand towards a common goal: to share their culture and weave inspiring stories into their products. With Mischel’s passion for modern calligraphy and Jenica, a scarf collector, deciding to put Mischel’s art onto her scarves, art creator Isabelle and business-minded Jenica (Kaw) were roped in. For several months, the four communicated regularly to develop what would eventually be JIM Weaver’s flagship collection.
