A masterpiece for the new year

To supplement the demand for modern design high-rise apartments in Klang South, another prime spot within Gravit8 has been earmarked for a 29-storey residential tower.

The Tresor is set in the masterplan’s most impressive parcel, offering unobstructed views of the exquisite 8-acre Lakepark.

Drawing inspiration from the stunning island of Santorini, a distinct island experience is brought to life through its architecture, aesthetics and holiday-styled facilities.

You’ll wake up to clear lakefront vistas and end the day with astonishing sunsets at The Tresor.

The Tresor comprises 416 units of freehold serviced apartments and 25 boutique shops. Spread across 2 wings, The Tresor features a link bridge connected to the Pier8 retail mall on Level 1 and 24 family-friendly facilities spanning across 1.3 acres on Level 8. 

With multiple layouts of 1+1 to 3+1 beds and sizes that range from 551 – 1206 sq ft, The Tresor caters to both small and big families. 

Another exciting tidbit is that the development has a different concept added into the mix called Parkhomes. It offers owners the easy convenience of parking their vehicles right at the doorstep of their unit, allowing them to enjoy easy entry into their homes while indulging in the benefits of a fully equipped facilities floor within a secured environment and so much more. Parkhome units are located at Levels 2 – 7 and come with 3 car parks each. 

The RM1.3billion integrated development of Gravit8 is made out of residential and commercial components. Located in the mature township of Klang South, it acts also as a community hub with the 8-acre placemaking Lakepark @ Gravit8 gaining major traction amongst residents near and far.

A natural convergent point for young adults, Gravit8 has managed to achieve strong take-up rates for its residential towers. The first two towers, Nordica and Adria were handed over in Dec’19 while another two more, Andaman and Ashino are scheduled for completion by July of this year.

Newly launched, The Tresor is set to continue the successful run of Gravit8’s other residential components.

Valencia CF coach Javi Gracia, about the clash against Villarreal CF

Ahead of their next clash in LaLiga against Villarreal CF (Saturday 4am Malaysia Time), Valencia CF trained for the last time at Paterna sporting venue in order to ultimate the tactical details for the upcoming game.The coach Javi Gracia has talked on a press conference about how they are going to face the game after the tough defeat they suffered in matchday 25 against Getafe CF. He has said the players are ambitious and ready to play well and get the victory they need to recover good feelings.The only confirmed absence for this fixture is Mouctar Diakhaby, who has to deal with a one-game suspension due to the red card he saw in the last LaLiga game. On the other hand, Denis Cheryshev and Cristiano Piccini still don’t have the medical all clear and their presence in the game will depend on them receiving it before it or not. In any case, coming from their physical issues, it’s impossible to imagine they could make it into the game as Gracia said to the media.

PRESS CONFERENCE WITH JAVI GRACIA:

“I DON’T KNOW, I UNDERSTAND THAT THE RESULTS MUST BE BETTER, AND ON THE OTHER HAND I ALSO SEE THAT IN THE LAST FIVE GAMES, IN WHICH I THINK WE HAVE PLAYED TWO REALLY BAD GAMES, IN THAT NUMBER OF GAMES WE HAVE BEEN THE EIGHTH TEAM WITH THE MOST POINTS. I AM NOT CONSOLED BY THE FACT THAT OTHERS ARE WORSE THAN US, BUT WE DO COMPETEAGAINST TEAMS. IS THERE ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT? YES. DO WE NEED TO BE MORE AMBITIOUS? YES. DO WE HAVE TO IMPROVE OUR RESULTS? YES, BUT I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO GIVE POSITIVITY TO ALL THE WORK THAT THE TEAM DOES EVERY DAY, WHICH DOES NOT TRANSLATE INTO GOOD RESULTS, BUT I AM CONVINCED THAT IN THE NEXT GAMES WE CAN PLAY BETTER, GET BETTER RESULTS AND BE IN A BETTER SITUATION”.

“WE HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT US, WHICH IS TOMORROW’S GAME AGAINST AN OPPONENT THAT I THINK HAVE A STYLE OF POSSESSION AND WHO WE ALREADY FACED IN THE FIRST ROUND AND I THINK IT WAS PRETTY EVENLY MATCHED. WE WERE BEATEN, THEY MADE IT 1-0 WITH THE PENALTY, THEN 1-1, WE SCORED FROM A STRATEGIC PLAY, AND THEN WE WERE 2-1 DOWN WITH A SHOT FROM OUTSIDE THE BOX THAT WENT WIDE, BUT WE ALSO HAD OUR CHANCES IN THAT GAME. WE HOPE THAT IT WILL BE A GAME THAT WILL BE HARD-FOUGHT AGAIN AND WITH ALTERNATIVES”.

“GONZALO HAS DONE THE WHOLE WORKOUT AND HE’S FINE, I THINK IT WAS JUST A LITTLE BIT OF TREATMENT AT THE END OF THE WORKOUT BUT THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH HIM. CHERYSHEV HAS BEEN STRUGGLING WITH A CALF INJURY FOR SOME TIME NOW, I’VE ALWAYS BEEN QUITE OPTIMISTIC THAT HE WOULD BE FIT SOON. LAST WEEK HE WAS TRAINING, BUT AGAIN HE HAD DISCOMFORTS IN THE SAME PLACE THAT PREVENTED HIM FROM PROGRESSING IN HIS IMPROVEMENT. TODAY WE ARE IN A SIMILAR SITUATION, HE IS WORKING BUT HE IS STILL NOT WELL. I THINK HE WILL BE READY SOON BUT IT WILL DEPEND ON HIS EVOLUTION IN A PLACE WHERE HE HAS ALREADY HAD PROBLEMS. PICCINI HAS A PARTICULAR SITUATION, HE COMES FROM A SERIOUS INJURY, HE IS TRYING TO RECOVER WELL”.

LaLiga’s Media Session in Malaysia: 90th Anniversary

LaLiga marks its 90th season with a look back at some of the key moments which led the Spanish league to become a global benchmark and a leader in the entertainment industry.  February 10th marks 92 years to the day since the first match in LaLiga history:   RCD Espanyol 3-2 Real Union de Irún 

Kuala Lumpur, February 10th 2021.- LaLiga celebrates its 90th season in 2021/21, doing so as one of the best leagues in the world, a global phenomenon, and a true leader in the modern entertainment industry. But how did it come to be this international benchmark? At what point did it become so much more than a simple football league and emblematic of a whole country? What’s the secret behind LaLiga clubs winning five of the last seven Champions League and 15 of the last 21 European trophies, or LaLiga players picking up each of the last 11 Ballon d’Ors? 

LaLiga reflected on these questions this February 10th, looking back on almost a century of competition to mark the 92nd anniversary of the first ever LaLiga game: RCD Espanyol 3-2 Real Union de Irun, played at 3.10pm at Sarria stadium in front of thousands of fans who each paid no more than a couple of pesetas. The world has evolved no end since then, but LaLiga has adapted to the changing times, and at no time with more decisiveness and global vision than over the past decade.  

On the field, Real Madrid and FC Barcelona have more often than not been the motor to push the league to new highs. Los Blancos have wowed the football world ever since the days of Alfredo Di Stefano and Santiago Bernabeu in the 1950s. FC Barcelona, meanwhile, took a step up in the early 1990s, when Johan Cruyff’s Dream Team laid the seeds of how football would be played over the next three decades. Off the field, meanwhile, the league’s organisational structures evolved to provide ever-increasing support to the league’s sporting successes. LaLiga as we know it today was founded in 1984 with this in mind, and the emergence of pay TV channels in 1996 saw the competition become known internationally as the ‘League of Stars.’ LaLiga has grown to dominate club football over the past 25 years, and in particular in the last decade thanks to the prolonged rivalry between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, two of the greatest players to ever play the game. The success of financial controls introduced in 2013 has also seen an ever-increasing balance emerge within the league, as has the collective rights sales model which was introduced two years later.  

To these key moments in LaLiga history add in the greatest players and coaches in world football, iconic stadiums, historic clubs, fascinating stories, an international structure at the cutting edge of technology and countless goals, moves and moments which will live forever in the memory of fans all over the world… the result is a blockbuster production that 90 seasons on continues to offer excitement and emotion of the highest order. 

About LaLiga 

LaLiga is a global, innovative and socially responsible organisation that leads the way in the leisure and entertainment sector. It is a private sporting association which is comprised of the 20 LaLiga Santander and 22 LaLiga SmartBank clubs and public limited sports companies (SADs) and is responsible for organising professional and national football competitions. In the 2018/19 season, LaLiga reached a global audience of 2.7 billion. The institution is centrally headquartered in Madrid (Spain) and has a presence in 55 countries through its nine offices and 46 delegates. The association carries out social outreach activities through its foundation and is the world’s first professional football league with a league for intellectually challenged footballers: LaLiga Genuine Santander.

Malaysia’s Top 5 Best-Selling Categories on 11.11

The craze of the 11.11 sales has been in Malaysia for years since Alibaba’s first introduced it in 2009. Nowadays, online shopping is at its all-time high thanks to better technology and the general public having to abide by social distancing guidelines and literally “duduk rumah”. With this, shopping has taken a turn for the better as purchases are now merely clicks away!

To put things into perspective, a whopping 70 million items were bought online on Shopee during 11.11 in 2019. So, what are these products that were bought by fellow Malaysians?

1) Electronic devices and accessories

According to iPrice, the most popular electronics for Malaysian eCommerce consumers are smartphones, laptops and tablets. Samsung was among the best sellers in 2019s 11.11 while Xiaomi and Huawei phones have also been popular among buyers.

Male Malaysians in particular had shown great interest in mobile gadgets and accessories, as seen with the high volume of search queries such as “power bank”, “speaker”, “headphone” and “iPhone” that were searched somewhere in the neighbourhood of 2.9 million times during last year’s 11.11 sales. 

More users are also leaning towards making online purchases for smartphone models such as the iPhone 11 Pro Max, Huawei P30, Asus ROG Phone II, Samsung Galaxy S10+, OPPO Reno 2, and Honor 20 Pro.

2) Home appliances

Calling all house owners! Because as families build their homes, so too are eCommerce markets. Thanks to the rising demand for housewares on Shopee, many shoppers are heading to 11.11 to get the essential needs for their perfect homes.

Notably more money is now being spent on home appliances such as pressure cookers, electric ovens, light bulbs, and air fryers. With more and more time being spent at home, we can only expect this number to increase as the next “dalgona coffee” may just be around the corner and the tools needed for that next viral trend is just a click away.

3) Fashion

Malaysians have little to no shortage of options when it comes to online shopping for the newest and trendiest clothes. Apart from Shopee and Lazada, Zalora and Hermo also attract a huge number of Malaysian shoppers for their 11.11 sales. 

Interestingly, one may think that only the ladies are attracted to the fashionable deals on 11.11, but men are also joining the club as Shopee announced their main online buys for men were clothing, shoes, bags and wallets.

4) Personal Care

Under personal care, health and beauty products made up a majority of sales for 11.11. Retailers such as Hermo are widely known as a one-stop-shop for the ladies and it is not exaggerating to say that both international and local brands are very easily accessible nowadays.

Among the highly sought-after products were the beauty serums, liquid foundations, and even marked down Cetaphil products. 

5) Food

What better way to end this than with the one thing that Malaysians are most proud of – food! 

In 2018, Malaysians purchased more than 27 tonnes (24,493 kilograms) of Milo in the first two hours of Lazada’s 11.11 sale; and it did not stop there as the love of Milo stood firm and made its way to one of the top selling items during 11.11 in 2019 as well.

Bonus feature! Baby products

In 2019’s 11.11, diapers were among the most popular items, with more than 13 million pieces sold. Shopee also showed that buyers from Kelantan, Pahang and Terengganu mostly bought items for mothers, kids, and babies. 

According to the report, “diapers, baby rompers, play mats and breast pumps” were the most purchased items during that time.
