push the limits

If there’s anything positive that came out from the agonies of self-quarantine, it was that we regained time. Time to finally sort your belongings and clear out the clutter that has been accumulating. Time to pull out the cookbooks and try out the recipes you’ve been wanting to. Time to get around to the books and shows you’ve missed out on because you’ve been so busy. Time to look up and admire the clear blue skies. Whatever, there was definitely something to fill up the time. For our national divers we have the honour of featuring on the cover this month, it was still training (home-based workouts) as usual despite the postponement of the Olympics. Ng Yan Yee said on her Instagram that this was the best decision for everyone, but…

no second wasted

It was an early Sunday morning when we began the first half of our Olympic photoshoot with Nur Dhabitah Sabri and Ng Yan Yee; the second half of it done on a Saturday afternoon with Leong Mun Yee as the divers’ schedules were hectic while they prepared for the Tokyo Olympics (the event was still on schedule at the time.

We’re used to it,” reassures Yan Yee as she tucks into…

beyond drawn lines

It was 8am in Washington DC and 8pm in Malaysia when Sarah Chen and I had our call over Zoom; the founding partner of Beyond The Billion was one of Forbes’ 30 Under 30, and was recently named Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum this year. Chatting about the current state of affairs to kick things off, we inevitably addressed the undercurrent of panic that’s been building up over the past few months. “It’s been rather crazy out here,” Chen admits, “so we definitely have our hands full at the moment.” With industries being impacted on a global scale, it isn’t any wonder that many are struggling to put out metaphorical fires, including the venture capital industry—which, according to Chen, is seeing a massive shakeout in the works. “The…

NOR ‘PHOENIX’ DIANA Pro Wrestler In 2019, ‘Phoenix’ was the name on everyone’s lips in Malaysia’s pro-wrestling scene and in similar circles across Asia and the UK.
