Local Icon Michelle Yeoh Stars in A24’s Biggest Hit… And More M’sians Are Making Waves Abroad!

Thirsty for JUICE content? Quench your cravings on our Instagram, TikTok and WhatsApp

Remember Lumi News?

ICYMI, it’s Malaysia’s top-rated news app, with over 50 of the most prominent publishers in news, lifestyle, and entertainment. Readers can keep up with the latest and hottest stories by scrolling through their hyper-personalized news feed (we’re not exaggerating!).

With Lumi News, you can:

  • Be notified promptly when there’s breaking news
  • Share must-know updates to your friends and family in real time.
  • Filter news based on topics of interest.

… and more!

For context, here’s a listicle on Malaysians making us proud abroad: 

1. Michelle Yeoh Skipped the Red-Carpet Premiere of Her First Hollywood Headliner Movie Due to Contracting Covid

It is not uncommon for Malaysians to accomplish enviable success abroad.

Take, for example, the iconic Michelle Yeoh. Despite having to miss her first Hollywood headliner movie’s red carpet premiere, due to COVID, she’s killing it in the industry right now!

From Memoirs of a Geisha to Crazy Rich Asians, the woman sure knows how to slay a crucial role.

2. M’sian-Born LGBT Woman & Ex-Dolphin Trainer Land MP Positions In Australia

And Miss Yeoh isn’t the only Malaysian shining overseas.

These Malaysians in Australia have landed MP positions – one of them being an ex-dolphin trainer, while another is a LGBT Woman. Talk about representation!

3. M’sian-Born Journalist Snaps Pulitzer-Winning Photos Of Kabul’s Fall

Did you know? In the past year, we’ve not only had one, but two Malaysian-born Pulitzer prize winners. 

Do you smell that? Oh, it’s just the stench of passion and victory.

4. M’sian Filmmaker Bags Netpac Award For #MeToo Documentary ‘The Boys’ Club’

We aren’t just recognised on-screen: this Malaysian filmmaker made history and bagged a Netpac award for her #MeToo documentary entitled ‘The Boys’ Club’.

It is incredible how many Malaysians have attained success in various sectors on the international stage. If anything, it only serves to amplify the #MalaysiaBoleh spirit, right?

Nonetheless, as we commemorate these individuals’ breakthroughs, perhaps we should also consider why so many skilled Malaysians have chosen to seek greener pastures elsewhere and only manage to shine brilliantly once they flee the country…

Back to the point- want to keep in line with breaking lifestyle stories from JUICE but don’t know how (because your social media feed is clogged with ads or content from accounts that don’t even appeal to you?)

We have a remedy: read our publications straight from the Lumi News app, which is the ideal app for uncovering the newest feel-good anecdotes by Malaysians across the world – and much more!

Some of the most prevalent digital platforms in Southeast Asia are on it as well—in English, Chinese, and Malay, so you don’t have to fret about jargons and all that buzz.

JUICE also doesn’t have a standalone news app, so Lumi News is your best bet if you want to stay on top of our super-fun feed.

Alright, alright- it’s not all about JUICE.

The Lumi News app actually features stories from over 50 publishers, with over 25 topics to follow; so you can curate the flow of articles to your liking. It really is like no other…

The app also comes with specific news stacks, including a Good News tab. So if worry, fear and seriousness are not on your agenda for the day, you know where to go.

Download the Lumi News app on the App Store or Play Store to enjoy instant shareability today.
