how to research trends But is the only place you find cashmere wool coat from Kashmir? Not at all, although the origins of the word came from the Kashmir area from the Persian times, we are fortunate that many other locations are now producing cashmere. One in particular is in Inner Mongolia, northern China. This area is the biggest producer of cashmere goats in the wool. Vary the pressure when working with color to give the sketch shadows and highlights. Never mind coloring outside the lines, because neatness in drawing doesn count much compared with the tangible creation that results from the idea. Some designers even purposefully color outside the outline, making the sketch more artistic and abstract. Many films of the 1940s centered on the trials and tribulations of the brave men and women fighting for freedom in Europe and the Pacific. In order to express its support for the hardships and rations endured during the War by regular citizens, Hollywood created simple and subdued costumes during this period. Women dressed in simple suits or slacks with sensible shoes. Batman Forever Return of Swamp Thing (Truly bad but I couldn make a strong enough case to call it a superhero film) Elektra Meteor Man (This film almost made my list but I left if off since it is mainly a spoof) Ghost Rider Dick Tracy And finally, I have to mention one film that was excluded that perhaps deserves the number one spot and that the 1994 Fantastic Four film that was never released theatrically or on video although it been heavily bootlegged. Intending it to be a $40 big budget film, the producer, Neu Constantin was about to lose his rights to the film and had to produce something. He hired director Roger Corman to make the film but not for $40 million. Matchy Matchy doesn't always work in the fashion world because sometimes you have to mix and match your outfits along with a little color. With the rules of wearing white after labor day doesn't really apply anymore. In fashion, you'll need to take certain risks without being afraid to strut your stuff in those outfits that you own. Are you one of those people that know exactly what you want but you have trouble finding it. Try looking for it on Ebay. You will be shocked to find exactly what you are looking for in a very reasonable price. Should petite women buy, tweak, or skip the animal influences trend for fall/winter 2010/2011? I say tweak on this fall fashion trend. Furs, whether real or faux, tend to be quite bulky, so petite women should wear them with care. For example, a fur lined hood may work better than a full length fur coat.

I have never test drive any Sylphy before until I got the key of this Nissan Sylphy Tuned by Impul. This exclusive model is launched in Malaysia in conjunction with the 2012 Autobacs Super GT Series at Sepang International Circuit on 10th June 2012. It is a tuned up model based on the stock Nissan Sylphy 2.0.


Just like other Nissan, the Sylphy is easy to drive and spacious inside. I felt the legroom of the rear is as spacious as the ‘D’ segment cars like Nissan Teana or Toyota Camry. The interior is black in colour including the leather seats. However, the leather seats is also available in Brown colour as an option. Thanks to the Electric Power Steering (EPS), that results a lighter steering wheel control. The Sylphy has the biggest boot – 504 litres in its class. The 2.0 XV that we got is a premium model, it comes with Intelligent Key for true keyless start-up and entry. The engine can be started by turning the ignition switch once the Intelligent Key is detected inside the car.

2012 Nissan Sylphy Introduced in Malaysia

2012 Nissan Sylphy Malaysia

In about 4 years ago, the Nissan Sylphy was introduced in the Malaysia market.


For 2012, Edaran Tan Chong Motor revised the Nissan Sylphy with updates and upgrades that enhance its exterior styling and features. Now, the 2012 Nissan Sylphy is available in two variants – 2.0XL and 2.0XV.


“Nissan does not allow its models to become stale or boring and constantly provides upgrades to keep them fresh. We are confident that the new 2012 Nissan SYLPHY will win over more Malaysians, especially young executives who are looking for a refined sedan with the best value for  money,” said Dato’ Dr Ang Bon Beng, the Executive Director of Edaran Tan Chong Motor (ETCM).


The 2012 Nissan Sylphy now come with new front and rear bumpers, a new chrome grille, revised front and tail-lamps. In addition, the Nissan Sylphy come with five distinctive colour choices - Bronze Gold, Tungsten Silver, Sapphire Black, Twilight Grey and Brilliant White.


The engine remained the same all-aluminium MR20DE 2.0-litre 4-cylinder DOHC 16-valve engine with Drive-by-Wire technology. With ECCS, electronic fuel injection system and continuously variable valve timing control (CVTC). The 2.0-litre engine is pumping 133ps of power and 191Nm of torque yet fuel efficient.


The engine is mated with Nissan’s 3rd Generation Xtronic Continuously Variable Transmission (X-CVT). This combination results in superb fuel economy with refined yet powerful acceleration.


Both versions, which have a black interior theme with fine cherry wood trim, come with a new silver-ringed combi-meter design incorporating a Multi-Information Display; and a new audio system head-unit with MP3 and Auxiliary input.

Part of the upgrades, the door mirrors are now foldable with touch of a button and auto-climate air-conditioning system come with temperature display. Sadly, the rear brake still remained drum, which we think this lightly bothered some potential owners.


The Sylphy 2.0XV comes with 16-inch 7-spoke alloy wheels, intelligent key (i-Key) keyless entry and engine-start system, leather steering wheel with audio controls and bi-xenon projector headlamps with an Active Front-lighting System (AFS).

On the safety aspect, the 2012 Nissan Sylphy comes equipped with dual front SRS airbags, front seatbelt pre-tensioners, front seat Active Head Restraints and Zone Body construction with front and rear crushable zones. An auto-light system mode will automatically switch on the headlights when lighting conditions become dim (similar to Toyota Harrier, Estima or even Honda Insight).


The 2012 Nissan Sylphy is available with an on-the-road price of RM114,880.00 for the 2.0XL and RM124,880.00 for the 2.0XV. The prices are inclusive of insurance, road tax, registration fee and ownership claim fee in Peninsular Malaysia. For a limited period, all purchasers will also get an aerokit free of charge with each new Sylphy.


ETCM is currently offering a 3-year or 100,000km warranty (whichever comes first) and low interest hire purchase rates starting from 2.50% per annum, subject to terms and conditions.
