Netflix, Disney+, Amazon Prime, Apple TV Plus, HBO Max: Which One Will You Pick ?


We may be entering the golden age of streaming and gone are the days where you only had Astro GO and Piratebay as the only 2 options when it comes to tv shows and movies online in Malaysia. Now with 5 service providers available or will be available by 2020. Your options have gotten a whole lot better.

But there's a catch its just to expensive to have  them all..! With average prices around Rm 40 per service, that comes up to more that Rm 200 a month. And each of this providers have their own exclusive original content TV shows or movies. So which one would you get? I honestly don't know but here's a breakdown on prices and the must watch shows available this coming 2020.


Netflix, the old top dog in the room with a massive back catalog of old show's and brand new original content such as Stranger Things, You, and Lost in Space . Plans start from RM17 a month but the HD plan is RM42.


Amazon Prime not so popular over here but if your into show like  The Grand Tour or Jack Ryan this is the place to be.. Starts at Rm 12.50 a month for your first six months and then its about Rm 25 a month depending on the currency exchange as you will pay in USD.


Apple TV Plus very new just launched this week..! For All Mankind looks kinda fun and they have a USD 1 billion budget for new show coming soon also you can tryout first episodes for free via the app on Apple devices. It's now at Rm 19.90 a month but probably will go up as it's Apple.


Disney+ will be launching this week in the US and should hit Malaysia soon after. The fun thing about this is they have a massive back movie catalog as Disney Owns 7 out of  10 show that you watch at the cinema, from Avengers to Aladdin. Should cost around Rm 28 per month and may be bundled with Hulu for Rm 50 a month.


HBO Max, will cost about Rm 65 a month based on US prices and will launch in May 2020 in the US. It will have 10,000 hours of programming: everything on HBO, plus exclusive originals and a deeper catalog of licensed shows and movies.

Sunway Pyramid Parking Goes Ticketless & Cashless



Sunway has launched its new smart parking system that recognizes license plates instead of giving you a ticket and you can pay with almost any e-wallet or card of your choice which includes GrabPay, Boost, WeChat Pay, Alipay, Touch N’ Go Digital, and Maybank QR alongside credit partners MasterCard, Visa, American Express, JCB, UnionPay, and MyDebit.

The system will be deployed within Sunway City, which comprises Sunway Pyramid, Sunway Hotels and Menara Sunway. Currently, the system is online for season parkers and will be rolled out to public in Q1 2020.

With Sunway Smart Parking, drivers do not need to retrieve and pay using a parking ticket when they enter and exit. Instead, they will need to register their car plate number through the Sunway Parking portal. Once registered, they only need to ensure that their car plate is attached to a participating e-wallet to make payment, which will then enable them to move in and out of Sunway properties without any hassle.

When shoppers who are registered with the system enter the properties, their car plates will be scanned by a licence plate recognition system. Once the license plate has been identified, the parking boom gate will automatically lift and they can be on their way.

For shoppers who do not use any e-wallets or do not have internet access, they can opt to pay with the Touch ‘n’ Go card or through the auto payment system for this period to allow time for adoption.

Shoppers who register their car plate numbers during the pre-registration period will get the chance to enjoy a one-time free parking when it is open to public. For more info visit @Sunwaypyramid.com

From artistic references to unique materials, signature BOSS attention to detail informs
not only the individual pieces, but also the curation of the entire collection "The more you look, the more you see".

Honestly what are we looking at.. rehashed thin frames from the early 2000's ? Don't get me wrong I do like the frames but we will surely see a repeat in six months with another actor. Check out the frames below.
