Etsy Made Local Malaysia November 2016

It's not too late to make plans for the weekend! If you have nothing planned for the weekend, hope on over to Battery Acid Club, Damansara for an Etsy local-loving market.

Featuring more than 40 Malaysian makers and designers, you will get to meet the creative people behind some of the well-known handmade brands such as All The Ns, Tiny Pinc Miniatures, Bisou BonBon, Notbook Notbuk, My Paper Projects (MPP), Yuzmin Makes, Little Syam and more. Some of the makers will only be there for one day, but the line up is so good that you just have to come back the next day for more!


Etsy Maker: 10 Things About YiliYuli

Exactly one year ago, our Malaysian creative community had the privelege to meet some of the people behind ETSY when they were visiting the South East Asia region. Not long after that, ETSY released an ETSY Resolution Boot Camp to help local artists and makers, boost their creative business profiles and encourage makers to 'Be Your Own Creative Boss'. The boot camp was conducted online, featuring professional Etsy entrepreneurs such as Jemima Callaghan from LostPropertyHongKong and Vincci Ching from Angee W. At the end of the boot camp, we asked one of the instructors (and they kept an eye out the whole time) which 'student' caught their attention. Of course, we had to ask because we had to find out if we guessed correctly. We sure did!

To commemorate ETSY meet Malaysia, we kept the chosen 'student'  of #etsyresolution 2016', YiliYuli to feature in our post this month. Literally saved the best for last!



Chatterbox: A Chat with Be Good

There are businesses that start with a business plan; and there are those that just spring from the heart. Be Good is one of the latter. We caught up with James Wong, the man behind this upcoming skincare brand and asked him to share a thing or two about his entrepreneurial journey.



12 Malaysian Artists BRING IT ON at the First Art Battle Malaysia!

Art Battle Malaysia was held last weekend at Publika, Mont Kiara, Kuala Lumpur. It was a movement that celebrated the creative spirit of every single individual, whether they are the ones who participated or not.

The colourful event was a blast and it saw 12 Malaysian artists battled with paints, and brushes as their "weapon of choice" and canvases as their "shield". 

Hyping up the crowd were hosts Melissa Th'ng from Hitz.FM and Mash from ASTRO.
