KUALA LUMPUR (Sept 12): Hunza Properties, named after the stunning Hunza Valley in Pakistan, was an opportunity to do something new for Datuk Seri Khor Teng Tong. 

Like with his earlier venture, exporting frozen seafood, the founder and former chairman of the Penang-based property developer started with no knowledge of what it would involve.

Indelible memories of growing up poor reminded him of the importance of having a roof over one’s head. 

Bold and enterprising, this “Property Man 2014” has built his reputation on doing things right and with award-winning projects. 

Hunza is building the 43.5-acre Penang International Commercial City, an integrated, smart and green development.

Elsewhere in this issue, we meet some of the 25 brands that took part in the recent Geneva Watch Days and pick out fun and phenomenal pieces that made a lasting impression and reconnect with English heavy metal band Iron Maiden, which has released Senjutsu (Japanese for tactics and strategy) after a six-year hiatus.

Dayak filmmaker Misha Minut Panggau’s horror film, Belaban Hidup: Infeksi Zombie, which she scripted, produced and co-directed, is winning awards and putting the spotlight on Iban culture. 

In Sabah, Camilla Faris creates Anting, minimal, classy jewellery that creates memories for the wearer.
