Superbrands Malaysia 2019 Awards

Special event a tribute to 28 strongest Malaysian brands.

Superbrands Malaysia 2019 celebrates its 11th edition and has selected 28 brands to pay tribute to the strongest and most valuable brands in the market in this year’s awards event.

Superbrands, the independent global authority and arbiter of branding, hosted their annual event at the Ritz Carlton Kuala Lumpur for the key global multi national corporations (MNCs) as well as top local brands encompassing a wide spectrum of different industries and officiated by YB DATUK IGNATIUS DARELL LEIKING, Minister of International Trade and Industry.

YB DATUK IGNATIUS DARELL LEIKING, Minister of International Trade and Industry.



Mr. Mike English, Superbrands Director.


Speaking about the event, Mr Mike English, Director, Superbrands said: “The Superbrands Malaysia 2019 Awards, considered as the ‘Oscars of Branding’ by the corporate world, are presented to the winning brands represented by their chief executive officers, managing directors, marketing directors and other top marketing and PR executives.

 Guests at the award night

“Superbrands also unveiled the highly anticipated and much coveted coffee table-style Superbrands book, which includes a two-page profile of each of the Superbrands at today’s tribute event.


“The awards are a wonderful showcase for brands to highlight and promote their successes, and for senior executives to get together to celebrate their Superbrands status.

“We are happy that many local brands which include new entrants, have made it to the Superbrands list this year in addition to globally recognised brands. These brands were not only voted by our distinguished brand council members but also by marketing professionals, who voted through an online poll.”

After rigorous selection criteria, set by the Superbrands Council, more than 3,000 professionals were invited to vote for candidate brands. More than 1,468 leading Malaysian brands were scored by the council and through the online poll and the highest scoring brands were then designated as Superbrands.


Great performance for the night

Only brands that achieve the level of recognition set by the independent council are eligible for inclusion in the Superbrands Malaysia book, which traces the history and achievements of each of the brands.

“Malaysia’s best brands which range from fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) to locally owned family businesses, are featured in the book. Participation in the Superbrands book is by invitation only and acknowledges the inherent strength of the organisation and its brand value.



“Brands participating in the Superbrands programme are entitled to use the Superbrands logo on their advertising, packaging and other marketing communications collaterals. The brand’s story is also featured in the Superbrands reference book and on the Superbrands website,” Mr English adds.

The Superbrands Council comprises individuals who have shown exceptional aptitude in business and who have a thorough knowledge of the market and methods of business. To be voted as a Superbrand is a powerful endorsement and is evidence for existing customers, potential customers, media, suppliers, investors and employees of each brand’s exceptional status.

Mezmerising Northern Lights and The Blue Lagoon


My little brother  is currently holidaying in Iceland and he sent me some really beautiful pictures of the Northern Lights. I was captivated by it. Imagine being there to see it for REAL. I have not been to Iceland. According to my girlfriend the Aurora Lights dances. Let's just admire their beauty in this blogpost. I will leave you with 2 beautiful photos captured by my brother in Iceland. I think I would freeze to death there. I cannot tahan cold one. He told me it was 1 degree. I wanna pengsan already.


To tell you the truth, I have not even experienced snow before. I will lari when it's cold. Cannot tahan! Like that how to visit a cold country?

A visit to the Blue Lagoon in Iceland(not me) these 2 beautiful pics were taken by my brother. Hosting it here for remembrance. These were the best pictures he shared with me and my family throughout his entire journey in Iceland. Gosh! I wish I could also take a dip there! It's so tempting...the scenery and all. So I asked my brother how was the temperature? He said it was warm and just nice! The Blue Lagoon is actually a luxury spa in Iceland.

A relaxing time at La pétales beauty consultancy

Relax, Refresh & Rejuvenate
A time for rejuvenation,

A time for a total relaxation.

I head on over to la pétales beauty consultancy in SS2. 
I have been living in SS2, PJ and only yesterday I discovered La Petales Beauty Consultancy, a hidden gem that is totally worth visiting for your wellness and spa needs. They offer a range of services which include body exfoliation services, face treatment services or facials, relaxing body, detoxing and slimming massages and even body spa where you can have a milk bath, waxing services, relaxing foot spa and so much more. It is a total wellness centre, a one stop centre where you can do services from head to toe and feel like a million bucks but at an affordable price!
La pétales beauty consultancy is located just above Weng Kwong Jewellers (note the Decleor Signage) at SS2/55 (same row as Poh Kong)


And here is their chic looking entrance. Just take the stairs up to the First Floor.

As you climb up the stairs, a he Decleor poster in a warm and cosy lighting greets you.
Cosy interior with soft and calming spa music greets me as I walked in.

I was feeling rather tired lately and needed a massage badly. Time for some self love and me too time with some pampering. If you love yourself, take time to unwind and distress by indulging in relaxing massages that can help you rejuvenate your mind, body and soul. It is rather enriching to do this at least once a month. Don't forget to love yourself and reward yourself. It can do wonders to your overall wellbeing.

For the month of October, La Petales Beauty Consultancy launched a BUY 1 FREE 1 pampering spa package at an unbeatable price of RM 148 for 2 sessions. That works out to only RM 74 per session. 


And thus began my pampering session which started off with a good old scrub with Epsom Salt and vinegar, mixed together with a cooling mint cream to scrub away all my dead skin cells and helps relieve sore muscles. The scrub also helps in removing toxins which gives the body a detox it needs.


 After a good old scrub-a-dub-dub, I was led to the bath area where a bathtub sits in the bathroom. Beautifully decorated with plats to set the mood for a relaxing journey as I clean the scrub residue from my skin. I was given a 20 minute bath time.



 After drying myself, I was back at the massage room where my masseur, Ainun was patiently waiting to proceed to the next session, my full body detox massage session with essential oil. I am pretty used to massages because I do frequent massage parlours on a regular basis and I could tell when the whether the masseur is experienced of not. I know I am in good hands the moment Ainun laid hands on my naked body. Her pressure was on point and she knows her pressure points very well for my lymphatic treatment.

 She uses a Triton looking tool to help drain and detox  my body. This was my very first time experiencing a tool like that!

Ainun was very detailed with my treatment tackling every part of my body, right up to my tired feet. I told her I was having some heel problem and she concentrated more at the back of my feet. How thoughtful and considerate she was! I even asked her for a photo with me later cause she did a wonderful job and I had the best time of my life, but she gently declined. She was camera shy. LOL.


My 45 minute detox session was very satisfying and I must say this place is one of the best place which I have had my massages done. The masseur was very attentive and gives me all the attention I need when I told her I needed more concentration on my stiff shoulders and neck.  
 And this is me, glowing with radiance after my spa treatment and a very relaxing massage. A picture perfect moment with the ever gorgeous founder of La Petales Beauty Consultancy, Kai Li

There are more than 100 ways to prepare salmon as you can see here in tonight's dinner. The spread of fresh Salmon and seafood is abundant and endless.

 I tucked into the endless spread of desserts too! Everything looks soooo yummy.


The ice cream station here serves up very unconventional flavours all curated especially for the event and seems to be a hit among guests.
 
 
Special guests at the gala dinner this year are Liv Lønnum, Norwegian Deputy Minister of Petroleum and Energy, Dr Xavier Jayakumar, Minister of Water, Land and Natural Resources  and Teresa Kok, Minister of Primary Industries.


Ms  Lønnum  is on a mission to further strengthen bilateral relations between Malaysia and Norway. She will visit Norwegian businesses operating in Malaysia. She hopes to learn more about the Malaysian energy sector, including within the area of renewable energy.
The Gala Dinner is also a great networking platform!
  
Beautiful ladies dressed to the nines were seen at the Gala Dinner. Don't they look lovely.
And gentlemen looking dashing in their suits. 
Well good food certainly unites people.  

Kudos to the team that made the Norwegian Seafood Gala Dinner a great success, every year! And here are the chefs behind this!
