Instant messaging is awesome because you can connect with people from around the world in an instant. But the thing about messaging is that it’s all just text, or communication by thumb, if you will.
However, humans weren’t really designed to communicate with their thumbs. Yea, we’ve got emojis and gifs now, but none of those have the emotional impact of someone’s voice or, better yet, their presence.
In the spirit of the Chinese New Year, local ride-hailing service Grab will now deliver Yee Sang straight to you via GrabCar.
It has become almost a tradition for Xiaomi to have festive sales and with the upcoming Chinese New Year, their Malaysian Facebook page Mi Malaysia posted a note about 2 days ago indicating that they will be having a 2-day sale starting 10 am on 21 January until 10 pm on 22 January 2016.
Well, if you don’t have a calendar on you, that’s today! Here are the items that are having their prices slashed.

The Chinese manufacturer’s co-founder (Li Wanqiang) posted a short and sweet post on Weibo earlier today, though it was by no means insignificant; he confirmed that Xiaomi’s Mi 5 will be launched after the Lunar New Year (February 8th), as well as the processor that it’ll have under the hood.

In last year‘s CNY promo, Apple slashed up to RM131 from its iPad price and additional RM331 discounts on its MacBooks and iMacs. If the trend continues, we should be expecting similar discounts as well.
Since the iPhone 4S was launched just recently, we don’t expect any reductions but who knows Apple might throw in something special.
