Top stories: Carey Ng is a mum-to-be
Get all the details on the first episode of #AsNTM5, Parliament's newly-passed bill, and the latest Raya collections out now
Former Miss Universe Malaysia Carey Ng is expecting a baby with husband Roen Cian Nagapan! The baby will be the couple's first kid together and we're just as excited as they are.
It's also been an equally exciting week for many other Malaysians. Nora Danish has a new music video, Alia Bastamam designed her first AW17 collection, Asia's Next Top Model Season 5 contestants Shikin Gomez and Alicia Amin nailed their first show challenge, and 17-year-old Cassandra Hsiao got accepted into all eight Ivy League schools in the United States.
But we're most proud of the team of hard working people who campaigned for the Sexual Offences Against Children 2017 Bill and successfully managed to get it passed by Parliament, including former R.AGE journalist, Maryam Zainol.
Elsewhere, Iceland is about to close the gender pay gap, Massimo Giorgetti exits Emilio Pucci, Jenna Lyons leaves J. Crew, Kristen Stewart starred in another Chanel campaign, Kendall Jenner and Pepsi came under fire for a tone-deaf ad, Eleven Madison Park topped The World's 50 Best Restaurants list, Pandora opened a new store in Pavilion KL, and Beyoncé got extra again.
Raya season is coming up and local designers have been rolling out their festive collections, one after another. See Melinda Looi's here, Rico Rinaldi's here, and Zalora's here. For those seeking some retail therapy this weekend, look to Salvatore Ferragamo's capsule collection with Sara Battaglia, Puma's TWO new releases (the Fenty Creeper and the Basket Heart Denim), these affordable skin boosters and the prettiest makeup brushes you've ever seen, courtesy of Tarte Cosmetics.
And now it's time to wind down for the weekend (with a little help from your homemade spa).
