Roche Malaysia's Pharmaceutical Division Organized Its First Healthcare Hackathon

11:48 am Deelicious 0 Comments

Recently, Roche (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd, the pharmaceutical division, organized its first Hackathon, where staff came together during the CMCO to brainstorm realistic, innovative healthcare solutions for Malaysian cancer patients.


Themed ‘Reimagine Healthcare’, this 3-day event was co-organised with
MaGIC (The Malaysian Global Innovation and Creativity Centre) and was participated by employees from the Roche group in Malaysia, comprising the pharmaceutical, diagnostic and shared service centre. They were guided by a trainer, mentors and validators, with the aim of finding ideas that can potentially deliver real and potential impact to Malaysia’s healthcare system and cancer patients.



A hackathon is an event (usually hosted by a technology company or organization) where programmers gather for a short period of time to collaborate on a project. The participants normally work rapidly and often work without sleep to achieve their task, as the events generally last between 24 hours to a few days. 

“Hackathons have rapidly evolved and have become more flexible in recent years, and are now widely used in different industries,” said Lance Duan, the General Manager of Roche Malaysia. “Thus, I am pleased to see Hackathon evolving into the healthcare industry, as these proposed solutions may change the paradigm for patients and the healthcare ecosystem.”

This 3-day event was co-organised with MaGIC, who helped bring in the mentors for the Hackathon. “Through this Hackathon journey, I believe the participants benefited from the insights and guidance from the diverse stakeholders, as not only were they from the healthcare community, but also from the digital and technology arena,” said Dzuleira Abu Bakar, CEO of MaGIC.

Prior to the 3-day Hackathon event in November, there were 2 ‘ignition’ sessions for all Roche colleagues to join, whereby external speakers from various industries shared and discussed their innovation journey and how it had transformed their organisations to deliver a bigger and better impact within their industries.

When the Healthcare Hackathon kick-started on the first day, Roche staff were divided into 6 teams' and were introduced to the problem statement - How best to enable cancer patients to receive the best treatment for their specific condition. Through-out the first and the second day, the teams used design thinking to ideate and propose prototype solutions, while investigating different methodologies for their concept.

At the end of the third day, the 6 teams pitched against each other, when they presented their concept to the judges, who were Lance and several healthcare professionals. The judges looked for ideas that demonstrated a true commitment to innovation and digital utilization that delivered real, measurable impact and a realistic adoption of their concept. 

Dr. Benjamin Cheah, a Consultant Rheumatologist, who was one of the validators and judges, said, “I was privileged enough to witness an innovative event organised by Roche Malaysia. I am always inspired by the passion and enthusiasm of individuals. It was an honour to see the embrace of new ideas and the commitment to sustainable and positive innovation in healthcare.”

Lance also added, “As one of the judges, I was impressed with the 6 teams’ presentations, given the limited period to share innovative solutions for cancer patients. To me, all the ideas generated expressed a genuine desire to deliver meaningful change for Malaysian patients. By working together across different divisions, this enabled the OneRoche experience, which also helped the teams stay motivated as we deliver better outcomes to more patients faster. I thank the trainer, mentors and validators for their time and effort through-out, as well as my fellow judges for their hard work in reviewing the presentations with me”.

Two winners were announced - one in early childhood cancer education and the second an application on breast cancer. In the next few months, the winning teams will be provided with sponsors, mentors and sounding boards to make their ideas come to life. 

“I see the potential of Hackathons, in promoting out-of-the-box approaches to creating realistic solutions, and I look forward to more creative, disruptive ways, like our Healthcare Hackathon as this promotes innovation and radical collaboration in our bid to do more for Malaysian patients,” Lance added.

Tetangga Kita Launches “Makasih Ya”: A CSR Effort to Support Communities Affected by the COVID-19

4:46 pm Deelicious 0 Comments

We see our local businesses doing good and making changes for the betterment of their local community, one of those, is Tetangga Kita, an eatery originated from Indonesia specializing in martabak, has recently introduced its new packaging –  “To all our frontliners, Makasih Ya” to show appreciation towards frontliners in this unprecedented time. 

In conjunction with the campaign, Tetangga Kita is partnering with The Hope Branch, a non-profit organisation (NGO), founded by Harith Iskander and Dr Jezamine also known as Pertubuhan Harapan Amal Harith Iskander, where part of proceeds of the total campaign sales will be donated to the NGO.


Martabak Telor Spicy Mayo
 
Aiming to bring the Indonesian street food closer to Malaysians, the martabak-focused eatery uses authentic ingredients and recipes imported from Indonesia. Tetangga Kita offers two options, Martabak Manis and Martabak Telor, translated as sweet martabak and savoury martabak respectively. For Martabak Manis, customers have the option to enjoy the thicker version with the richness of the flavour in a whole bite or the perfectly rationed thin version to savour the crisp and crunchy taste of it.

New packaging featuring frontliners!

Some of the specialities on Tetangga Kita’s menu include the Jagung Keju (Tebal), Lotus Biscoff (Tebal) and Sapi, which is the crispy egg martabak with beef tenderloin, onions and leek. As appealing as it sounds, cold beverages such as the bottled Cold Brew Latte, made from single-origin Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffee beans cold-brewed with milk and a hint of gula Melaka, is another offering perfectly paired with the choice of martabaks available. Tetangga Kita has two outlets, one is located in Hartamas Shopping Centre, Kuala Lumpur and another outlet in Paradigm Mall, Petaling Jaya.

Martabak Manis Lotus (Tebal)

Tetangga Kita, a brand who chooses to give back to the community, recognises the impact COVID-19 has brought to the livelihood of many communities. Tetangga Kita aims to be of help in areas that are needed, to support the frontliners. With the launch of the new packaging, Tetangga Kita jumps on the bandwagon to cherish the frontliners, hospitals, police and armed forces.

Tetangga Kita will be donating to The Hope Branch, an NGO officially launched to assist vulnerable families, single parents, Orang Kurang Upaya (OKU), marginalised community and B40 to sustain during this pandemic. To date, The Hope Branch has contributed 25,000 meals and has distributed grocery hampers benefitting 200,000 families. At the end of the campaign, Tetangga Kita will contribute part of the three-months-long proceeds to The Hope Branch.
 
During this CMCO, both Tetangga Kita outlets will only be opened for takeaway and deliveries. Customers can place their order at Tetangga Kita’s official website https://tetanggakita.oddle.me/en_MY/ or via their affiliated food delivery applications such as Grab Food, Food Panda and Oddle

The Starhill signs Eslite Spectrum as Anchor Tenant - Bringing the Essence of Contemporary Taiwanese Culture and Creativity to KLites

5:45 pm Deelicious 0 Comments

Bringing more exciting and good news to all of us, especially to KLites and Selangorians (of course), is that Eslite Spectrum arriving to KL in 2022. I remember going to eslite in Taipei and totally wow-ed by it! 


The Starhill is welcoming the renowned eslite spectrum (誠品生活) by the eslite Group, which innovatively created the world’s first 24-hour bookstore, from Taiwan to Kuala Lumpur in 2022 – their first-ever eslite branch in Southeast Asia, following the signing of a tenancy agreement between Mr Joseph Yeoh, Vice President of YTL Land & Development Bhd and Ms Mercy Wu, Chairperson of the eslite Group today. 


Not just a bookstore, eslite spectrum will be a creative cultural venue with a rich selection of Chinese, English and Malay language books, as well as music, design and hand-made goods, performing arts, themed restaurants and coffee shops, lifestyle brands, and diverse cutting-edge cultural and creative brands.

To give a summary of eslite, here's video for you: 


The focus will be on showcasing the dynamism and vibrant energy of cross-cultural and creative exchange between Malaysia and Taiwan. Located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, the 70,191 sq ft store will become The Starhill’s anchor tenant, commanding the entire Level 1 space and also including a street-fronting F&B outlet on the Ground Level right next to The Starhill Piazza where creative events and programmes will be staged all year round. 

The flagship store will also feature a sweeping café terrace on Level 1 overlooking The Starhill Piazza fronting the bustling Jalan Bukit Bintang – perfect for patrons to gather, connect and people watch. An exclusive escalator is also strategically placed to bring shoppers directly from The Starhill’s new entrance atrium to eslite spectrum upstairs.


As a renowned Taiwanese cultural icon, eslite spectrum had been chosen by Time Magazine and CNN as Asia's Best Bookstore and “World’s Coolest Bookstore”. The eslite spectrum Songyan store in Taipei was also named among the “14 Coolest department stores in the world” by CNN. 

eslite spectrum is considered THE quintessentially Taiwanese store by Taiwanese and tourists alike – a must visit-shop-dine destination for visitors to Taiwan. eslite spectrum will be a game changer in the Kuala Lumpur retail landscape, providing fresh ideas for the retail experience and co-creating with Malaysians by presenting the crème de la crème of Taiwan’s diverse offerings and warm hospitality to Malaysia, right here at The Starhill.

“We are truly honoured to welcome eslite as our long term partner for The Starhill. With eslite spectrum taking pride of place as the anchor tenant, we are realising our vision of anchoring a lifestyle library as the heart of the Home of the Tastemakers where patrons can meet, gather and connect over shared interests in a new collective living space. eslite spectrum epitomises the discerning taste of a true Tastemaker, being a seasoned retail player which has constantly set new benchmarks and delivered a slew of first-evers in creative retail concepts and experiences, besides offering a thriving platform for creators of cultural content. They are a match made-in-heaven for The Starhill’s plan to create KL’s ultimate premium social destination for all to celebrate literature, the arts, fashion, design, music, food and creative events. We cannot be more excited to witness its opening which will truly complement the distinctive experience of The Starhill that focuses on differentiated retail experiences, embodied by one-of-a-kind concepts by exclusive brands in Kuala Lumpur,” said Mr Joseph Yeoh, Vice President of YTL Land & Development Bhd. 


He added that the eslite Group is a kindred spirit to the YTL Group, with a mutual commitment to the power of education and the value of books as vehicles for cultural and creative exchange. “This is a deeply meaningful partnership between two family businesses with a rich heritage and passion for education and knowledge as drivers of change. I believe this partnership can potentially be a catalyst for a deeper cultural exchange between Malaysia and Taiwan through retail experiences and a community-oriented store that reach a wider audience across all ages and demographics,” Joseph said.


“eslite was founded in 1989. Our core values lie in the desire of ‘integrating the humanities, arts and creativity into life,’ and in the importance of venues with ‘the spirit of the place.’ That is, through the interaction of space, activities and people, eslite hopes to create ‘the possibility of people encountering their own spirit within its spaces.’ From Taiwan to the Chinese community and then Asia, we are very excited to establish a new flagship branch, the first store in Southeast Asia, in the capital of Malaysia. 

eslite is committed to becoming the most influential, unique, omnichannel, cultural tourism brand and a platform for the cultural and creative industry in the Chinese community and Asia,” said Ms Mercy Wu, Chairperson of eslite Group. 

She added: “Through this Kuala Lumpur store, we hope to promote exchanges and interaction involving Asian publications and the cultural and creative content of the region. We also wish to create more opportunities for cross-regional dialogue between Taiwanese and Malaysian writers and their works, and present readers with novel reading perspectives. Malaysia is an exciting country, with its own characteristic design aesthetics and cultural creativity, and we look forward to integrating the multi-ethnic and cross-cultural characteristics of Southeast Asia, and inspiring exciting diversified creativity in our store.”


“We look forward and feel excited about embarking on this journey in Kuala Lumpur as Malaysians have been Taiwan’s top tourist segment from Southeast Asia for 10 consecutive years and are strong supporters of our stores in Taiwan. Additionally, YTL has vast local and international development and management experience and we also feel a special kinship to them as the YTL family ancestors have roots in Kinmen, Taiwan. We are thankful to have YTL as a partner in bringing to life our concept and vision for development in Malaysia. eslite's founder, Mr Robert C. Y. Wu, once said ‘eslite's ultimate concern is people; the most valuable asset of a city is its people; and the most beautiful scenery in any city is its people.’ eslite, together with the local people of Malaysia, will create new possibilities. We hope that with long-term careful planning and development, it will become a beacon for cultural exchange in Southeast Asia!” 

eslite spectrum is targeted to open its doors in The Starhill by 2022.

Limited Edition PUMA SUEDE Launched in Celebration of Tommie Smith's Legacy

10:10 am Deelicious 0 Comments

PUMA has recently launched a limited edition of the iconic Suede silhouette to their brand ambassadors, athletes, and key partners – created to commemorate Tommie Smith’s legacy and his fight towards universal equality.

 
The Suede was first worn during the 1968 Summer Olympics, Tommie had his shoes next to him on the podium as he rose his fist, standing up for justice and equality – considered as one of the most iconic and symbolic moments in sporting history. From that day forward, the PUMA Suede became an icon; a shoe made to last for all time.
 
This year PUMA moves to a new focus and rebirth of the Suede, kicked off with a limited seeding of premium Suedes in honor of the continued legacy of both Tommie and the shoe. Only 307 numbered pairs were created for this exclusive seeding, an homage to Tommie’s number during the Olympics.


Each pair includes a certificate of authenticity signed by Tommie Smith with the pair number on both the shoe and certificate. These pairs were made in Italy with the finest premium leathers, materials made to last a lifetime.
 
"One of the first shoes I wore was the PUMA Suede, I just liked it,” reminisced Tommie Smith on his partnership with the German sports brand. “To me, the historic chapter of the PUMA shoe was the personality of the people that wore it and the notoriety that it brought to me by helping my family out, and now, I'm part of that family – that's why I put it on a high mark."
 
“I've been with PUMA for over 50 years, because I view that company as a family, and not someone who gave me shoes to run. And the shoes that I ran in you saw on the victory stand, and that was a social positive for me, to run for something that would grow later on in a way that I could help others as PUMA helped me move through that particular difficult time.”
 
In an interview with Tommie Smith by H
ighsnobiety.com, he discusses the meaning behind his symbolic stand, and how a silhouette, like the PUMA Suede, can come to represent more than just a shoe. 

This is the first in a series of episodes which highlight trailblazers who have made an impact in society and culture. The upcoming episodes will continue to celebrate the decades of cultural heritage forged by the Suede, featuring an exclusive conversation with Walter “Clyde” Frazier.
 
The PUMA Suede has been an intrinsic part of history, and it will continue to be for all time. Always available on PUMA.com, PUMA stores, and retailers worldwide.

This campaign and contest aim to spread the goodness of New Zealand cheese by bringing happiness to Malaysian consumers amidst the current Covid-19 pandemic.


According to Jack Tan, Fonterra Brands Malaysia’s Foodservice Director, the contest aims to spread happiness through the goodness of New Zealand cheese and dairy products, while the country tries to weather through the Covid-19 pandemic. 


“Cheese is a rich source of protein. 
Consuming protein as part of a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle contribute to good mood. In other words, eating cheese may make us feel good. We hope to bring more positive vibes and smiles to Malaysians by getting them to indulge in New Zealand cheese!” says Tan.



Besides being a natural source of protein, cheese is also known for its great taste!

Anchor Food Professionals hopes to support the local F&B industry affected by the global pandemic by extending their presence to more home and in-store diners and patrons as part of a journey to upskill food operators with much-needed social media skills, especially in times of this pandemic. 


“The Covid-19 crisis has accelerated the need for businesses to be social media savvy to pull through the challenging financial climate now. Anchor Food Professionals wishes to support F&B operators to up their social media game so that their businesses continue to survive, or even better, to thrive while Malaysia works towards regaining its economic strength. Hence, some participating restaurants and bakeries are offering takeaway and delivery service in order to reach out to more consumers, especially those who prefer to dine at home during this period of time,” Tan points out.

Giving the reason why consumers should choose to consume dairy products from New Zealand, Tan says: “Anchor Food Professionals is one of the leading dairy foodservice company in Malaysia and we pride ourselves for our strong heritage in producing high-quality dairy products from grass-fed cows in New Zealand since 1886." 

"Anchor Dairy Foods products are sold in more than 80 countries worldwide and have been present in Malaysia through Fonterra, a New Zealand multinational dairy co-operative since 1960. We have a sterling track record in providing dairy products that are unique in taste, texture and functional performance to food operators in the Malaysian F&B industry”.
