Year-End Mus­ings

Prestige (Malaysia) - - Editor’s Letter - | PHO­TOG­RA­PHY AARON LEE @ LENSWORK STU­DIO STYLING ANDREA WONG GROOM­ING GAVIN SOH LO­CA­TION WAL­DORF AS­TO­RIA BEI­JING GOLDEN BRIDGE STREAM FROM CO­RUM; COAT, TURTLE­NECK TOP AND PANTS FROM PRADA

We’ve had quite a year over here at Pres­tige. It’s been a year of ad­just­ment, a year filled with teary good­byes to a few from our Pres­tige fam­ily while we em­brace new faces to the fold, mak­ing room to ac­com­mo­date our ever-grow­ing fam­ily. Though change is an in­evitable part of evo­lu­tion and growth, we are as­suredly con­fi­dent of what Pres­tige stands for, pledg­ing to remain true to the DNA of the ti­tle.

As the year-end draws to a close and our in­box on the verge of ex­plod­ing from the on­slaught of fes­tive in­vi­ta­tions (where are those liver pills), this may be a wise time to take a breather and re­flect on the year. 2018 has proven that the im­pos­si­ble be­came pos­si­ble, as Malaysians have made their voice loud and clear that the time for change has come. While the ground­work for a new foun­da­tion is be­ing laid out, our hopes and dreams for the na­tion are re­vived. What 2019 will un­fold, only time will tell.

Speak­ing of time, the team were pre­sented with the op­por­tu­nity to fly in to Bei­jing and get up close with Co­rum’s new global brand am­bas­sador Hu Bing. The multi-tal­ented su­per­star shares an en­dear­ing tale of how his first watch rep­re­sented more than a piece of ac­ces­sory, it was a sym­bolic ges­ture that marked a rite of pas­sage into adult­hood.

And as we em­bark on this jour­ney into the new year, let us strive to be the best ver­sion of our­selves and share the fes­tive cheer with some­one in need, how­ever big or small.

En­joy,

Julie Yim | ACT­ING EDI­TOR
