Celebrating Guinness 50th Anniversary with limited-edition bottle designs

Well I suppose that none of you doesn't know what is Guinness and it's one of the Malaysians' favourite black brew. Malaysian-brewed Guinness has been previously recognized as the best in the world, beating more than 50 breweries worldwide to win the coveted "Guinness League of Excellence" award five years in a row. In conjunction with the celebration of Guinness 50 years of brewing in Malaysia, they have unveiled three Malaysian-inspired limited-edition designs for its Foreign Extra Stout bottles and cans at the Intermark Hotel last Thursday.

"It's a very fitting way to celebrate the milestone of 50 years of brewing Guinness in Malaysia," said Bruce Dallas, Marketing Director at Guinness Anchor Berhad (GAB), "For the first time, we've created brand new limited-edition designs specifically for one country, drawing inspiration from its culture and its people. Guinness has a long and storied relationship with Malaysia, so it's particularly pleasing to be able to launch this world-first here."

The three limited-designs will be available between now and November, while stocks last. Each design is bursting with vibrant colours and intricate patterns, inspired by the wealth of history and culture Malaysia has to offer. What hasn't changed, however, is the glorious Guinness inside - it's still the exact same formula that Malaysians have known and loved for all these years.

The new limited-edition designs have not only been inspired by Malaysia; they have been created for Malaysians, by Malaysians comprised of musician Edwin Raj (frontman of local band They Will Kill Us All), artist Donald Abraham, film director James Lee, graphic artist Lefty (Julian Kam), and photographer Vincent Paul Yong.

Each limited-edition design represents a distinct era in Malaysia's journey - stretching back to our tribal roots, through to the age of independence, leading into the modern day and looking ahead to the future.

How can we attend Guinness event without Guinness? We were served Guinness with caramel ice cream which tastes really good surprisingly!

The three collectible limited-edition designs will appear on all bottles (325ml and 640ml) and cans (320ml) of Guinness Foreign Extra Stout sold from now until November, while stocks last. I've got my hands on all three designs of bottle, how about you? :)

Next is Now | Samsung Galaxy Note5

After four months since the grand launching of Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, Samsung is back with another great invention of Galaxy Note5 representing its continuous commitment to the big screen smartphone market, which Samsung boldly pioneered in 2011 with the original Galaxy Note. I'm so glad to be one the first few to discover the brand new Galaxy Note5 and now I'm going to highlight some of the new and main features and I bet you will fall in love with the phone rightaway like I do!

As I have mentioned of the big screen Galaxy Note5, 5.7" Quad HD Super AMOLED (518 ppi) screen definitely have a great advantage for multi-taskers as you can always check news updates while messaging or taking notes with S Pen. Despite the 5.7" display screen, it ergonomically fits in one hand with a narrower bezel and curved back as inspired by the design legacy of the Galaxy S6. With the increased size of display screen, Samsung has also increased its RAM to 4GB, offering the most powerful capacity and processing power on the market, enabling you to enjoy more seamless multi-tasking, keep up with messages, post updates to social networks faster and enjoy graphic-heavy games without suffering lag time.

Another point which I find Galaxy Note5 comes in really handy is its dual SIM slot. It is very useful for mixing work and pleasure, rather than carrying separate phones for their work and personal contracts. Dual SIM phones are also useful for maintaining two personal contracts, however, whereby one might offer a good rate on calls and texts and the other offers unlimited data. Or perhaps you frequently travel abroad, you would like to carry a SIM card when you're at home and another that is local to the country you're visiting. Dual SIM function is getting more and more common and nowadays people will put it as one of the main criteria when they're looking for new phone.

Furthermore, Galaxy Note5 can now convert handwriting into text in your preferred language. For people who love to write instead of pressing the qwerty keyboard, it will be an advantage as well as time saving.

As a blogger, most of us will automatically press on the Camera app once we got our hands on the new Samsung Galaxy Note5 and start selfie here and there. I got to say Samsung is gradually improving on the camera features all this while and now they even have Live Broadcast where you can record videos and instantly share it in real-time straight from your phone! It's really convenient especially during concerts or travelling where you would like to share your joyous moments with your friends and family. I would definitely give a thumb up to the 16MP (Front) and 5MP (Rear) F1.9 camera for capturing stunning selfies and more amazing shots even in low-light conditions.

Here comes my favourite features of Galaxy Note5, the screen off memo and scroll capture. Talking about the screen off memo, I personally love to record things or write notes on my Dropbox and now I can skip all these hassle to unlock my phone and open the app to record with this new feature. You can just write a memo or draw on the screen anytime, anywhere with S Pen even when the screen is off!

On the other hand, scroll capture is actually screen capture (eg. of a webpage) from top to bottom up to 22 pages and you don't need to repeatedly scroll down and printscreen anymore. You can also do instant editing like adding some notes by the side or highlight the key points and share it to your friends. The improved air command will be activated immediately when you take out your S Pen and you can customize up to three shortcuts for instant access.

The new features are so convenient and I think it's totally meant for me! I'm so tempted to purchase the Galaxy Note5 so most probably I will trade up with my Galaxy S5 to get a cheaper price off heh :P

Making the 5th anniversary of the Galaxy Note series, Samsung is proud to commemorate the Galaxy Note5 with a celebration of the Note Legacy. What makes Galaxy Note series so special is its larger display screen, incomparable S Pen which does wonders and its multitasking capabilities providing Samsung users with an all-round immersive experience.

Samsung Galaxy Note5 (32GB storage) is available at all Samsung retail stores at the RRP of RM2,699 (inclusive of 6% GST) in two colour options - Gold Platinum and White Pearl. Additionally, an exclusive trade-up campaign ( will commence on 4th September where Samsung fans can trade in their old smartphones for a brand new Samsung Galaxy Note5 (discounts up to RM1,150). Head to the nearest Samsung store now and discover the new features!
