WomenFest 2017: An Experience

Right, it’s the first week of November which means that Pink October is over. Don’t stop fighting the good fight (against breast cancer). That being said, the MATRADE building over on Jalan Duta played host last weekend to WomenFest – a shopping and lifestyle festival aimed at women, and the first of its kind in Malaysia. With over 100 local brands featured, it was certainly An Experience (capitals required). I consider myself pretty good with conventions and festivals.

Malaysia’s Fake Beauty Industry

Hello Malaysia, we’re at it again. We’ve ripped off major beauty brands – vis-a-vis packaging – and proven that we are completely creatively barren: My favorite example of Malaysians who have money but unfortunately lack the brains to come up with something of their own. — azlyn balqis (@lynfunkstar) October 18, 2017 We have so many avenues for entrepreneurs to shine and really push their products, however – it’s things like this that make headlines (or hashtags, your pick). Between Malaysian beauty products that contain mercury, lead and other foreign, dangerous ingredients, and smaller businesses who blatantly copy...
