When was the last time you went to the shops, bought a newspaper, sat down and read it from cover to cover?
I honestly can’t remember the last time I did that. It was probably for a college assignment or something. Ask someone ten or fifteen years ago and they would’ve probably thought the fact that someone like me existed was absurd. But that’s the thing about technology: It’s ruthless.
It will devour everything in its path, all in the name of moving forward and while that’s brilliant, it’s also incredibly scary. I studied Journalism and during my four years in college, my lecturers all insisted that the newspaper will always be around as a medium. Then I see stories like these, and videos like these and suddenly, I’m not so sure anymore.
The same could probably be said about film. With how accessible, portable and amazing 360-degree cameras have got over the years, is this the beginning of the end for traditional rectangular filmmaking?
Xiaomi wants to make this year’s Merdeka worth your while by providing a better e-commerce experience with MOLPay finally available to handle payments. That’s not all, as three special deals are available during the period that might interest potential buyers.

Malaysia will be celebrating its 57th Merdeka Day (Independence Day) on 31st of August. Being Malaysians, we not only love our food but we also have a closely knit community where we call each other like family.
DiGi and Maxis had just released their Merdeka videos and they are surprisingly similar. Not sure if they shared same script or simply great minds think alike. Watch them after the break.
As we approach Malaysia’s 57th independence day on 31st August, the national anthem will be played at all cinemas during Merdeka week. Communication and Multimedia Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Shabery Cheek says that the response of last year’s cinema initiative has been positive among cinema operators and the public. Our Negaraku anthem will be played before movie screenings for a week before 31st August.
He added that the national independence day should be celebrated by all quarters and it shouldn’t be seen as just a government initiative. Just recently Celcom has just kicked off its Merdeka video contest where participants can join and upload their videos onto YouTube. More info on the Merdeka video contest here.
It’s Merdeka month and you know what that means. Brands big and small show their patriotic spirit through advertisements. Some do it better than others while a select few, like Petronas, got this festive ad thing down to an artform.
And this year, DiGi’s #confirmmalaysian campaign stood out from the crowd so much that we felt that it deserves a mention here. In a nutshell the #confirmmalaysian campaign attempts to capture the Malaysian spirit through the power of social media and everyone who’s a Malaysian can participate. All you need to do is take a picture and post it on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #confirmmalaysian. The beauty of this campaign is that you can be anywhere in the world and you can still take part.
We like the campaign because it’s simple and fun and it uses social media so effectively to drive participation and conversation. At the same time the campaign clearly represents everything wonderful about being Malaysian. Nice work DiGi!
What do you think of the campaign?
