Catch World-class golf with Premium Carlsberg beer at the Maybank Malaysian Open 2014


Carlsberg has always been a forerunner in golf. As the Maybank Malaysian Open 2014 kicks off, Carlsberg returns once again as one of the tournament’s longest-standing main partners as it continues its reign as Official Beer.

Henrik Juel Andersen, Managing Director of Carlsberg Malaysia, said, “The Maybank Malaysian Open, a world-class golf tournament and Carlsberg, an international premium beer, are a perfect match, sharing qualities such as passion and integrity, while the tournament celebrates champions. It’s great to be back on the green at the Maybank Malaysian Open to catch the action and witness Malaysia’s love for golf while offering the Carlsberg experience to our consumers on this award-winning course.”

Carlsberg consumers can win season tickets to watch the Maybank Malaysian Open by taking part in the consumer promotion at selected golf clubs in Klang Valley and Negeri Sembilan. Throughout the 4-day tournament Carlsberg is offering spectators a beer buffet promotion at a flat price of RM80, from 11am to 3pm.

“The international scale of the Maybank Malaysian Open puts Malaysia firmly on the map as one of the top destinations for golfers around the world. Carlsberg’s partnership with the Maybank Malaysian Open and dedication to the development of amateur golf through the Carlsberg Golf Classic has rightly earned us the reputation of being golfers’ beer of choice. Now that calls for a Carlsberg!” Andersen added.

At the Carlsberg Hospitality Marquee invited guests and customers of Carlsberg will have the best view of the 18th hole, access to a live feed of the action as well as sample a range of premium beer, stout, and cider by the brewer as they meet some of the international golfing greats who are expected to drop by. Co-sanctioned by the Asian Tour and the European Tour, the Maybank Malaysian Open’s stellar line-up of international pro golfers is expected to bring participants and fans another world-class golfing experience at the KLGCC.

A New Haircut To Face Life's Challenges


Back to basics, I re-installed this Blogpress for iPhone app again to try out blogging on the fly. The last I tried this application was way back in 2011 if I'm not mistaken. Anyway this would be a short post to share on my new haircut which only cost like RM9.90 in Taman Desa Setapak.





So what changed? Well, for starters I maintained my hair length on the top, back and front while snipping off the sides. Wanted to try that latest 'undercut' look. Unfortunately my hair wasn't long enough to pull it off. Nevertheless, shown above is the result. Here's looking forward to the new challenges ahead, which I feel is coming real soon. To infinity and beyond!

COSMOS: A SPACETIME ODYSSEY comes more than three decades after the debut of Cosmos: A Personal Voyage, Carl Sagan’s stunning and iconic exploration of the universe as revealed by science. Seth MacFarlane teamed with Sagan’s original creative collaborators – writer/executive producer/director Druyan and co-writer, astronomer Steven Soter - conceived the 13-part series that will serve as a successor to the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning original series.

As with the legendary original series, the new COSMOS is the saga of how we discovered the laws of nature and found our coordinates in space and time. The series brings to life never-before-told stories of the heroic quest for knowledge, transporting viewers to new worlds and across the universe for a vision of the cosmos on the grandest – and the smallest – scale.

The series invents new modes of scientific storytelling to reveal the grandeur of the universe and re-invent celebrated elements of the original series, including the Cosmic Calendar and the Ship of the Imagination. The most profound scientific concepts are presented with stunning clarity, uniting skepticism and wonder, and weaving rigorous science with the emotional and spiritual into a transcendent experience.

“We’re thrilled that COSMOS: A SPACETIME ODYSSEY will be airing not only on the National Geographic Channel, but also simulcast on Nat Geo Wild, Nat Geo Channel HD, FOX, FX HD, Nat Geo People, and FOX CRIME, and FXHD. This is a follow up production to Carl Sagan’s revolutionary Cosmos: A Personal Voyage and we believe that it will captivate the audience like never before and that they will truly enjoy the show,” said Keerthan Adyanthaya, General Manager of FOX International Channels.

COSMOS: A SPACETIME ODYSSEY is produced by Cosmos Studios, the Ithaca, NY-based company Ann Druyan co-founded in 2000, and Fuzzy Door Productions, MacFarlane's company.
Druyan and Steven Soter are the series’ writers. Druyan, MacFarlane, Cosmos Studios President Mitchell Cannold and Brannon Braga  (the “Star Trek” franchise, “24”) will executive-produce the series. Jason Clark (“TED,” “42”) will co-executive produce. “Like” COSMOS: A SPACETIME ODYSSEY on Facebook at www.Facebook.com/COSMOSonTV.
