Get Mugged!

If you have not noticed, we have recently made available collectible mugs that can be purchased from all our stores. Caught up with the hype of it, we managed to speak to two individuals just last weekend and here’s what they have to say about it :

Name : Thomas Yap
Location : Sunway

1. How often do you buy mugs?
This is my first time buying the mugs. They are lovely!

2. Do you think mugs are necessary and why did you buy the Quiksilver mug?
Oh yes! I buy the mugs because they are big enough to save me trips to the water dispenser. One mug equals to one trip saved compared to normal cup. Haha.

3. How much do you like your Quiksilver mug?
No words can describe. ๐Ÿ˜€

4. What have you been using it for lately?
See, I used it once to drink in my office and will give it away to my brother later on as a gift for moving into his new home.

5. Would you recommend people to collect them as in comes in 4 different designs?
Quick! I heard stock is running out. They are limited edition!

Name : Sheng Mae

1. How often do you buy mugs?
At least one for every year. Haha, because they come in such creative designs these days. So they make perfect gifts, plus, my sister is a mug-addict.

2. Do you think mugs are necessary and why did you buy the Roxy mug?
Of course they are! But I didn’t purchase this mug – a close friend bought it for me unexpectedly. ๐Ÿ™‚

3. How much do you like your Roxy mug?
On a scale ofย  1 to 10 with 10 being the highest, I’ll make it an 11!

4. What have you been using it for lately?
I’m planning to bring it into my office soon so that I can have my dose of Java with it every morning to kick-start the day.

5. Would you recommend people to collect them as in comes in 4 different designs?
Collections are good. Keep ’em for properly for the next 25 years and you’re probably holding an antique by then. So, yes!

A Tidal Wave of Talent

The opportunity to surf came unexpectedly for the bubbly 20-year-old, Jia Qi.

“I was working at Quiksilver in Sunway Lagoon when the lifeguards invited me to join them for their staff surfing once every week. I was thrilled! I got this second-hand surfboard for RM800 from one of the lifeguards!” says Qi.

What’s so fun about surfing?
“It’s relaxing! When you’re out in the seas catching the waves, you don’t think of anything else. There’s a sense of joy in doing that!” She continues, “Though, I’m still very cautious of wipeouts (falling off the board), or when I’m stuck in the water for a long time. The rocks out at sea are dangerous too.”

Jiq Qi explains that guys are naturally better surfers because they’re stronger, and it helps when it comes to pedalling. “Plus, most girls want to jaga their body – so they don’t pedal hard as is might make their arms grow bigger!” she says with a laugh.

Qi also travels to Cherating, Kijal and Kuari to surf. Her most treasured experience was in Kuari where she was out in the beach from 2p.m. till 6p.m! “The waves were terribly rough, but I was able to ride on the board-without falling! That feeling was indescribable; I didn’t even feel exhausted! But there was this one time in Kijal where I didn’t manage to balance very well. The front of my board broke, hit my nose and it started to bleed. I had to sit by the beach and wait while my friends surfed.”

If you want to take up surfing, Qi advices that you learn to swim first. “You have to be a good swimmer. If in any instance you loose you board and the water currents pull you deeper to the sea, it really helps if you can swim well.”
