Upsygals are out to save Mother Earth through sustainable fashion | Cool Story Bro Ep. 27
In this week's episode of Cool Story Bro, I caught up with founders of Upsygals", pronounced like “up-cycles”. The two of them started Upsygals with the vision to reduce fabric waste by shopping at thrift stores and converting them into a unique piece of garment. The unique thing about what they do is that every piece of art/garment will be only one of one. Meaning you won't have to worry anyone else wearing the same piece of garment as you when you go out. Xinyi is a fashion design graduate from RMIT Melbourne, and her best friend Qianku, a vegan scuba instructor understood that shopping at thrift stores can be a bit tedious due to the smell and dust, or most garments are either outdated or ill-fitted. The two of them are only 23 at the moment, and they are already championing sustainable fashion with the vision to change perspectives and introduce everyone the benefits of being a sustainable fashion company. Be sure to check out their website for more information on sustainable fashion or if you simply just want to purchase their products.

Bazli was almost signed to Universal Music | Cool Story Bro Ep. 26
This episode is one that is very close to my heart. Due to MCO, most musicians/performers are not able to perform at gigs/shows/concerts. So I figured why not have them on the podcast to not only promote themselves but their craft as well. The very first name that I thought of was Bazli, he is a long time friend of mine and was one of the reasons why I got into performing as well. I honestly wouldn't be able to play the guitar well enough if it wasn't for him. He used to play in a band called One Night Service when he first started gigging back then but now he sessions for notable names like Bil Musa and occasionally perform with his blues band. I have not caught up with Bazli for years but every now and then I'd still rock up to his shows. This is probably the most we've spoken over the years of not seeing each other and this podcast is pretty much where we relive our old days, his music, what's happening with our lives, a impromptu jam session, him playing the blues and a free guitar lesson. Also this man is about to embark on the biggest journey of his life. Which is marriage. I wish you nothing but the best and again thank you so much for coming on and hanging out. - Yim

Cloakwork shares his experience with the authorities | Cool Story Bro Ep.19
In this episode of Cool Story Bro, we manage to catch up with Cloakwork who is usually always on a "spraycation" whenever he is not working on any murals in KL. For those who don't know who he is, Cloakwork is a multidisciplinary creative who works as a graffiti artist as well as an illustrator. He has been painting around the globe for 10 years, with work consisting of both, small and large scale. his style is quirky, fun and colourful! Being a rebel, picking up spray cans as his creative weapon was the right choice and he heavily influenced by street culture. He always wanted to paint something related to the environment and the surroundings. Most of the characters to in some ways, come alive, speak and be part of its surroundings while communicating and interacting with viewers. CLOAKWORK is basically separated into two parts; ‘cloak’ and ‘work’. Cloak means hidden, stealth and cloaking while work stands for movement. I often do graffiti at night without being noticed. So it goes like this : plain concrete wall during the day, the wall gets ‘cloakwork-ed’ during the night and a colourful graffiti the day after.
