Editor’s Note: CLEO’s Last Print Issue, Celebrating Lolo Zouai And Women In The World

If there’s anything that the world we live in has taught us is that adapting is key. And while Eckhart Tolle referred to a spiritual awakening, he alluded to beings undergoing “radical crisis” will go through a massive transformation in order to rise above and evolve. We can never stay in one place. And in the age of innovation, change is always welcomed.

CLEO Malaysia has been in the print publishing business for almost 25 years, and is Malaysia’s top rated women’s magazine. Yet like any brand, we were eager, antsy, to jump on new bandwagons. The most notable is of course, us being online for at least five years while still bringing you a printed magazine that was monthly, then bi-monthly.

So now in 2020, we’ve turned to focus on our digital platforms which have grown tremendously even in the short span of time we’ve had. And because we’ve been the magazine that made cover girls before there was Instagram, shot Bachelors to stardom (!!!) and covered all the beauty and fashion and life tips before it was cool, we’re going to be doing the same (and more!) up to the minute. Of course there’s just so much to say about the legacy of 25 years, but there’s so much to look forward to, since we were the ones who started it all <3

CLEO Malaysia’s Mar/Apr 2020 issue is the last printed issue for now

Now, in our Mar/Apr 2020 we had the pleasure to feature the inimitable Lolo Zouai who had #TeamCLEO bopping to her tunes on the regular (Desert Rose and Caffeine are current faves!).  Seeing that March and April both are significant months for women (Intl Women’s Day, March 8 and Earth Day, April 22), we took a look at issues affecting our earth like the climate change crisis, and meeting women who call the shots in cinema, music, colour trends and even the empowering podcasts and reads you should know.

Pick up the latest and last issue on newsstands before it runs out!
