Happy New Year!
Participating in this year’s Malaysia International Fashion Week (M-IFW) as Official Online Partner, eBay Malaysia has created a microsite where local established designers from the annual event will be featured.
Shoppers can now log on to www.ebay.com.my/fashion and gain access to the latest designs from Asian Atelier by Alin Anuar, Eric Choong, Eclipse, Gallo by Thian, KN Key Ng, Nurita Harith, Stud, Tangoo, Tom Abang Saufi and William Liew.
The inaugural collaboration with Mifa is the latest effort by eBay Malaysia in forming valuable partnerships with key industry participants to extend the benefits of e-commerce.
Fashion is one of the most popular categories on eBay Malaysia — about 438 items of clothing and accessory items are sold everyday.
Allis Ghim, the eBay director who oversees South-East Asia, said: “With an apparel business approaching US$5bil (RM17bil) annually and 89 million active users worldwide, eBay is thrilled to present to the participating M-IFW ‘09 designers a new and innovative sales channel in today’s competitive retail environment.”
“Though their online eBay stores, with listings on international sites such as eBay.com, eBay.co.uk or eBay.com.au, the designers will be able to reach a broader international audience in a low cost and effective way,” he said.
Syeba Yip, Mifa’s chief executive officer, said: “M-IFW ’09 is aimed at elevating and positioning Malaysia as an influential player in the global fashion scene.
“In recognition of the increasing importance and value that e-commerce brings, we are pleased to team up with eBay to provide a platform for top Malaysian designers to showcase their products and take their businesses online.”
Wan Norma Wan Daud, director of product section at the Malaysia External Trade Development Corporation (Matrade) said: “The partnership between eBay and Mifa is timely, particularly in the current economic climate.
“With eBay, some of Malaysia’s finest fashion labels will be able to gain international exposure while expanding their sales channels beyond Malaysia to the world.”
Matrade is Malaysia’s national trade promotion agency.

On Aug. 10, Google announced Caffeine, suggesting a shift in the Google algorithm. Matt Cutts, the head of Google's webspam team, indicated Caffeine is basically a rewrite of the search index, roughly comparable to the Big Daddy upgrade of 2005-2006.
The once hush-hush project is supposed to revitalize the Google algorithm to provide users with a better search experience. The official word is that the update is "the first step in a process that will let us push the envelope on size, indexing speed, accuracy, comprehensiveness, and other dimensions."
Based on that, it sounds like we'll get faster indexing speeds, with more pages indexed and a more comprehensive search results page -- necessary advances as the web becomes more unwieldy. For search marketers, it means more competition for single, generic-type keywords, less stability of rankings, and an increased focus on long-tail keywords as they become more relevant to sales conversions.
That's all good news if your website is well ranked for your best keywords. If not, it's time to optimize now. Make sure your site conforms to Google's new infrastructure to avoid any loss of rankings.

I came across this story related to "Wealth", "Success" & "Love". It is full of wisdom and we can learn so much from it. Read the articles and you will understand what i means.
A woman came out of her house and saw 3 old men with long white beards sitting in her front yard. She did not recognize them. She said "I don't think I know you, but you must be hungry. Please come in and have something to eat."
"Is the man of the house home?", they asked.
"No", she replied. "He's out."
"Then we cannot come in", they replied.
In the evening when her husband came home, she told him what had happened.
"Go tell them I am home and invite them in!"
The woman went out and invited the men in"
"We do not go into a House together," they replied.
"Why is that?" she asked.
One of the old men explained: "His name is Wealth," he said pointing to one of his friends, and said pointing to another one, "He is Success, and I am Love." Then he added, "Now go in and discuss with your husband which one of us you want in your home."
The woman went in and told her husband what was said. Her husband was overjoyed. "How nice!!", he said. "Since that is the case, let us invite Wealth.. Let him come and fill our home with wealth!"
His wife disagreed. "My dear, why don't we invite Success?"
Their daughter-in- law was listening from the other corner of the house. She jumped in with her own suggestion: "Would it not be better to invite Love? Our home will then be filled with love!"
"Let us heed our daughter-in- law's advice," said the husband to his wife.
"Go out and invite Love to be our guest."
The woman went out and asked the 3 old men, "Which one of you is Love? Please come in and be our guest."
Love got up and started walking toward the house. The other 2 also got up and followed him. Surprised, the lady asked Wealth and Success: "I only invited Love, Why are you coming in?"
The old men replied together: "If you had invited Wealth or Success, the other two of us would've stayed out, but since you invited Love, wherever He goes, we go with him. Wherever there is Love, there is also Wealth and Success!!!!! !"
MY WISH FOR YOU...
-Where there is pain, I wish you peace and mercy.
-Where there is self-doubting, I wish you a renewed confidence in your ability to work through it.
-Where there is tiredness, or exhaustion, I wish you understanding, patience, and renewed strength.
-Where there is fear, I wish you love, and courage.
I hope you will share with your friend as well.
Facebook has been a hot acquisition target for years but the massively popular social networking site is now looking to pick up some of its own big name web properties. Apparently, the company tried to acquire Twitter for $500 million worth of stock five weeks ago but senior executives at both companies gave up on the idea at the beginning of Nov 2008.
The sticking point was of course price, with Twitter executives claiming that the $15 billion valuation of Facebook is inflated and taking the all stock offer would have would have actually given the deal a 150 million dollar price tag according to their calculations. Moreover, it seems there was a feeling among Twitter investors that the start-up should keep growing on its own and take a shot at figuring out its own revenue model.
This is my first articles for 2009, i would like to take this opportunity to wish all Chinese community
