#LumbaLumba: Myvi vs Jazz

By Muhammad Nabil Tidak menghairankan bahawa Myvi sering disebut sebagai kereta paling laris dijual di Malaysia sejak penubuhannya pada tahun 2005. Praktikal, jimat minyak, ruang yang luas; semua ini untuk harga yang menarik bermula pada RM 43,682 untuk model asas iaitu 1.3 liter G Automatic. Namun begitu, landskap automotif telah banyak berubah sejak 2005, dan dalam masa itu, syarikat pesaing lain telah melahirkan kereta dalam segmen yang sama, iaitu Honda Jazz. Konflik yang kita hadapi diwaktu itu adalah kes yang agak klasik, iaitu lokal vs antarabangsa. Jadi tanpa berlengah-lengah lagi, marilah kita membanding sama ada jaguh kacukan negara dapat...

I’m On A Boat – Day 2

*If you missed out on Day 1, read it here!   Day 2 All worn out from the previous day’s activities, I woke up a little too late for breakfast – but there wasn’t an issue as I swung by Café Promenade for a quick bite. We were docked in back in Malaysia – Port Klang to be specific – and Royal Caribbean offered all guests the option to disembark for offshore excursions. Some of the other cruise attendees opted to disembark and explore what Malaysia had to offer, but being a local I wasn’t keen on leaving the...

I’m on a Boat – Day 1

By Matt Liew   “I’m going on a cruise!” That’s a phrase you’d rarely hear from your friends in their 20’s, bar the overenthusiastic rave junkies attending Livescape’s annual cruise/rave mashup It’s The Ship – but that’s a different story for a different time. Last December, cruise masters Royal Caribbean collaborated with Dancing With Friends Singapore to throw Southeast Asia’s first ever Salsa Cruise, and they invited The Level (editor’s note: by The Level they mean CEO and Glorious Leader Matt) onboard for the experience of a lifetime. Fun fact: The only time I had ever salsa’d before in...
