With Independence Day (Merdeka) right around the corner, MINI Owner Club Malaysia and Huawei Malaysia recently joined forces with esteemed partners Auto Bavaria MINI and Leica Malaysia to host the “Mini, Monochrome, Eat, Malacca” Treasure Hunt.

Over 100 members from the Mini Owners Club were taken on a road trip to Malacca to capture the many unique aspects of the State’s hotspots by using P9; be it art, culture, food, sports, anything at all during a walkabout around Jonker Street.  The partnership with Mini Owner Club Malaysia, Leica Malaysia and Auto Bavaria MINI gave photography enthusiasts an opportunity to use the P9 to capture the success of Malaysia over the past 59 years. The venture was also aimed to achieve a similar result as to how the country was built on the foundation of all races working together as one to become the sovereign nation.

The treasure hunt marked Huawei Malaysia’s first step into the many partnerships. “It is our honor to collaborate with Huawei Malaysia, Leica Malaysia, and Auto Bavaria in the treasure hunt event, in conjunction with our merrily celebrated National Day. This event also serves a good platform for our members to explore Malacca by capturing the beauty of the historical city using the Huawei P9, which matches the true spirit of our club, Let’s MINI, Be MINI,” said Roslyn Kong, active member at Mini Owners Club Malaysia.

Matthew Ng, Deputy Country Director, Consumer Business Group, Huawei Malaysia, added, “We are excited to leverage Huawei’s global social media platform to promote our country to international audiences through the lens of the Huawei P9 and inspire them to visit the country. We hope this venture will establish more opportunities with potential organizations to venture into greater innovation in the future.”

The Huawei P9 and P9 Plus are the first smartphones born out of collaboration between Huawei and Leica, the global iconic imaging brand. The P9 comes with a dual-lens camera for exceptional images, whether in low-lights or dark conditions. The smartphone from Huawei sets a new benchmark in smartphone camera technology, with the ability to capture lighter and better photo clarity to produce brilliant colors and striking black and white images.
