[Sponsored] ZOOM Timepieces Bloggers Preview

Several weeks ago, I attended the exclusive preview of ZOOM watches with fellow MHB girls. Taking inspiration from Stockhlm design concept, ZOOM combines minimalism with great design.

The ZOOM design team adds different elements in design into their products, aimed at giving consumers a warm and passionate feeling when wearing the product.

The concise structure based on vivid and abundant colours shows the ZOOM concept, which is a new urban style and living attitude: a succinct style, an aesthetic of living, a “less is more” design concept.

The latest collection of ZOOM timepieces.

This is the MUSE 7100 which won the iF DESIGN AWARD 2015. The case is stainless steel (black IP), with mineral crystal, while the bracelet is genuine leather. It comes with a Japanese quartz movement and has 3 hands in the dial which is 44.0 mm in diameter.

Zoom timepieces are distributed in Malaysia by Time Galerie and are available for purchase at selected Time Galerie and 60 Minutes outlets including:

  • Time Galerie Aeon Big Kepong

Mary Kay, the cosmetics brand, recently announced that it is now accepting entries to the Mary Kay Asia Pacific 2015 Dream Beautiful Contest. The contest is in its third year, and the glamorous beauty contest is a regional makeover competition celebrating the making of Asia’s next modeling star and makeup artist talent.

Mary Kay believes in the numerous possibilities of a woman and her dreams. The Dream Beautiful Contest encourages women to discover their beauty by teaming up with Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultants - and to achieve their dreams with Mary Kay!

Looking forward to the 2015 competition, Mary Kay Asia Pacific President, K.K.

Unlike any model or makeup contest in the world, this contest focuses on partnership and is a way to transform the lives of thousands of women across Asia and make their dreams a reality. We encourage all women to bring their confidence, step onto the catwalk, and makeover their world!” 

The competition is open to nine countries across Asia Pacific, including Australia, China, Hong Kong, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, the Philippines, Singapore, and Taiwan. Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultants enter the contest with her customer as a pair, initially competing with others in the local market contest, before winners from each country converge in Hong Kong for a glamorous weeklong regional Grand Finale in February 2016.

During the Grand Finale in Hong Kong, the local market winners will take part in a week of training workshops, and individual and team challenges before winners will be chosen at a professionally produced, live catwalk show in front of a 500-strong audience, including local and international media.

Throughout the Grand Finale in Hong Kong, contestants will be mentored, trained and ultimately judged by an all-star panel of judges, who will inspire contestants to discover their inner and outer beauty.

Three (3) exceptional contestants will be crowned as the new faces of Mary Kay in the Asia Pacific Region while each of their Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant will be titled Winning Independent Beauty Consultant in the Mary Kay Asia Pacific Region. One outstanding Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant will be individually chosen as the Beauty Artist in the Mary Kay Asia Pacific Region.

Model Shu Yu Wei and Mary Kay Independent National Sales Director Jin Liu from China were last year’s winners.

In 2014, Shu Yu was a student in Nanning, China before she met Mary Kay Independent National Sales Director Jin Liu, who has been selling Mary Kay® products for 17 years. In October 2014, Shu Yu was selected as one of the winners of both the Mary Kay Greater China Grand Finale and the Mary Kay Asia Pacific Dream Beautiful Contest Regional Grand Finale. Shu Yu represented the Mary Kay Asia Pacific Region in an international photo shoot in New York, with Jin accompanying her on the shoot.


Top 3 winners will have the opportunity to participate in the Asia Pacific Grand Finale in Hong Kong from February 19-24, 2016 with 8 other countries, where winners will participate in model and makeup workshops led by industry experts and a photoshoot with one of Asia’s top photographers.
