Slated to release on February 20, the only Italian thing about this drama is the name.

The hit drama The Penthouse is returning with a new season. The first season is highly recommended. Set in the 100-floor luxury apartment, the story is about the women of the elite who will stop at nothing to reach their goals. Fans are wondering about characters who have supposedly ‘died’ in the last season.

The previous season has brilliant actors in their prime such as Eugene, Lee Ji Ah, and Kim So Yeon who are no strangers to Kdrama fans for more than a decade. However, the casting for the new season is still unknown. The drama is scheduled to release on February 19.

4) Beyond Evil

Beyond Evil is a psychological thriller with Yeo Jin Goo and Shin Ha Kyun as its cast. The story is about two men who are willing to do anything in pursuit of a serial killer. This drama begs the question of “who is the REAL monster?”. This reminisces the line in The Dark Knight by Harvey Dent, “You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself becoming the villain”. How far can a person go to eliminate evil? Is it to the extent of becoming evil themselves?

This drama will air on February 19. Shin Ha Kyun will play a demoted officer while Yeo Jin Goo as an elite detective with a secret.

5) Sisyphus: The Myth

Fans are excited for Park Shin Hye’s return since the popular Memories of Alhambra (2019). Sisyphus: The Myth is a fantasy mystery drama about Han Tae Seol, played by Cho Seung Woo who sets out on a journey of truth and discovery. Accompanying him is his savior Kang Seo Hae who has been through hell for him. Han Tae Seol is an engineering and coding genius. A mysterious force is chasing him and he has to find out why.

Fans of Greek mythology might have some inkling on what the story will be about since Sisyphus is a God in Greek mythology. Fans of Park Shin Hye will also be excited about her change of direction. She always plays tearful characters. Hence, it is interesting to see her in a more challenging physical role since Doctors.

This drama will air on February 17th and will also be available for streaming on Netflix.

Food Review: Moist, Sweet And Yummy! Massimo’s Special Edition Pound Cakes!

Published

on

Since its launch in 2011, Massimo has taken pleasure in providing you nutritious bread made with Italian passion, ensuring that the deliciousness in every bite, from taste to texture to flavour, matches the Massimo brand and heritage’s exacting standards of perfection. Since then, the brand has grown in popularity and is now a staple diet for many Malaysians, whether for breakfast or in between meals. Massimo believes in utilising only the highest-quality ingredients that are high in vitamins and nutrients to keep you going all day.

In conjunction with their 10th anniversary, Massimo has released a new range of special edition, moist, sweet and yummy pound cupcakes and they are known as Burrosa. Burrosa comes in three different flavours which are butter, red velvet and tiramisu. The new product looks almost like Massimo’s Chiffon In A Cup but tastes better.

1. Burrosa Butter 

Here’s my thought on the new product. My favourite one among the three would be the butter pound cake. It is just so soft and moist that it literally melts like butter in your mouth. Not only that, I love how it becomes the best combination for my tea. Besides, you can add any topping you want. I’ve tried this butter pound cake with nutella chocolate spread and peanut butter and it just tastes heavenly.

2. Burrosa Tiramisu

My next favourite would be the tiramisu. After butter, I love anything with coffee, especially coffee buns. Two reasons, they have a wonderful smell and it’s coffee! This tiramisu pound cake, to me, taste exactly like the coffee buns in bakeries. I pair my tiramisu pound cake with a cup of hot, aromatic coffee and it’s just amazing. Why not, the more the merrier right.

3. Burrosa Red Velvet

Last but not least is the red velvet. To be honest, I got attracted to the packaging because the turquoise packaging looks so adorable. The red velvet flavour is just smooth. The only thing missing is a cream cheese frosting. But no problem, I made my own cream cheese frosting at home and you have a premium red velvet cake.

Have you tried these new Massimo Burossa yet? Wait no more and get yours today. Cute packing, tasty and an on-the-go treat!

Published

on

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 3 — Lembaga Tabung Haji (TH) today launched its Stewardship Framework, the foundation of its governance structure to help the pilgrims fund board delivers its mandate of providing world-class hajj services more effectively and sustainably.

TH Chairman Tan Sri Md Nor Yusof said the framework is based on Maqasid Syariah or the higher objectives of syariah that covers five main principles namely the protection of religion, life, intellect, property and future generations.

“The main objectives of TH’s Stewardship Framework are to embrace Maqasid Syariah, conduct operations in compliance with syariah principles and uphold strong corporate governance with integrity,” he said in a statement today.

According to Md Nor as part of the launch, TH would also roll out internal programmes progressively to help its employees to internalise the framework and its role in strengthening corporate governance moving forward.

He added since the TH establishment in 1963, it has organised hajj for 1.5 million people and now, about half of all Malaysian Muslims or 8.3 million are now their depositors to help them save for hajj.

Md Nor said the growth of TH over the years has given rise to the need for TH to strengthen its governance structure further through its Stewardship Framework.

“With over 58 years of experience in syariah-compliant operations, it is essential for us to ensure the long-term sustainability of TH,” he added.
