International Winemaker of the Year, McGuigan Wines, celebrated their recent sales success with an exclusive wine tasting dinner at The Scot in Jaya One on 14 May 2013 to showcase the brand’s position as a market leader as well as introduce local customers and media to their reknowned selection of wines.

Senior Winemaker at McGuigan’s Barossa Valley vineyard, James Evers shared, “As one of the largest vineyard owners and managers in Australia, we pride ourselves on producing outstanding and innovative wines for both Australian and international wine consumers. Alongside this we ensure that all aspects of our business match these high standards, from quality grape and wine production, our passionate people behind the scenes and our commitment to supporting our trade partners.”

The event saw James introduce a wide variety of wines across McGuigans award winning portfolio including a selection of varietals from their Black Label, Signature and Expressions ranges and also the iconic Handmade Shiraz.


McGuigan Black Label

The Black Label (not to be confused with Johnnie Walker Black Label whisky) range is where the McGuigan legend started over 20 years ago and is the market leader in many regions globally. These wines are well known for their easy drinking style, approachable upfront fruit flavours and wines that offer quality, consistency and value.


McGuigan Signature

The McGuigan Signature range is a reflection of McGuigans proud history and commitment to creating wines of great quality and style. First launched in the UK the range quickly became a favourite amongst consumers worldwide, offering obvious upfront varietal characters, rich fruit flavours and a wine style suited for the everyday drinker.


McGuigan Expressions

As the name suggests these wines are fantastic expressions of fruit. Light, fresh and aromatic styles are the result of our winemakers being given free rein to experiment and produce wines that bring out the best of each varietal and blend.


McGuigan Handmade

This hand crafted, super premium, multi-award winning wine offering classical structure, great length and a velvety tannin finish. This limited edition wine is a beautiful interpretation of upfront fruit and wine complexity.

Royal Brunei Airlines Rebranding Journey

A scale model of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

Royal Brunei (RB) gave it’s business partners and members of the media a taste of its unique hospitality with an intimate cocktail session in Hotel Istana on 20 May 2013.

Mr. Dermot Mannion, Deputy Chairman of RB, said “We will be redefining the Royal Brunei Airlines flying experience, starting with our classic styled new livery and logo. This redefinition is not merely an ad campaign, but rather a long term commitment to our passengers to create a family-like, peaceful and tranquil atmosphere with high class customer service. The new livery and logo is the first step on RB’s rebranding journey.

Over the next year, RB will be rolling out a new website experience (including new social media experience), new uniforms, new lounge and ticket office environments.

The completion of the rebranding process will be timed to coincide with the entry into service of 787 Boeing Dreamliners in 2013 replacing the aging fleet of Boeing 777 planes currently in use, making RB the first airline in South-East Asia to take delivery of this ultra modern aircraft.

I couldn’t resist hahaha!

The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is a long-range, mid-size wide-body, twin-engine jet airliner that seats up to 290 passengers depending on configuration. RB though being a boutique airline, will ensure that passenger comfort is paramount therefore will not be using the maximum passenger capacity configuration.

Edaran Tan Chong Motor (ETCM) organised the Nissan Jurassix Park 2013, an exhilarating 4×4 adventure held in Miri, Sarawak, from 24th – 26th May 2013. The event was open to all Nissan customers in East Malaysia, especially for those who own 4×4 models such as the Nissan Navara, Frontier and X-Trail. 78 participants joined in for this off road challenge which saw a total of 35 units of 4×4 vehicles racing through the muddy and bumpy courses.

It was the first time that the Nissan Jurassix Park event was held in East Malaysia and it was held in Miri to allow East Malaysians the chance to discover the level of performance of their Nissan 4×4. ETCM has been organizing the event in Peninsular Malaysia since 2004 and the event in Miri was the sixth event to-date since its inception.

On the first and third days of the 3-day event, the general public had a chance to personally experience the raw power and capabilities of the Nissan Navara 4×4 around the course. The second day featured the “4×4 Off Road Warrior Challenge”, the main event which was exclusively for Nissan 4×4 owners to test their driving skills.

The Nissan Navara has been well received especially in East Malaysia where the terrain is often rough and the roads not often in a good condition or well non-existent. With a maximum torque of 403Nm/2000rpm, the Nissan Navara is highly rated for its toughness, off road capabilities and comfort across the world.
