    Hatsune Miku

    To date, her hit song – World is Mine – has received more than 16 million hits on YouTube. She has appeared in a TV commercial for Toyota, which aired in the US. She is the star of her very own video game – Project DIVA and her concerts are often sold out. It’s hard to think of her as anything but human, but the hugely popular Hatsune Miku is a virtual creation, and very unlike you and me. The face of Vocaloid 2, a singing synthesizer application first developed by Yamaha, Miku is a virtual pop star with a fan base that can rival Justin Bieber’s Beliebers. Her creators, Crypton Future Media, explain the inspiration behind her birth, and what the future holds for virtual stars like Miku.

    Somaly Mam

    She grew up in abject poverty under the Khmer Rouge regime, was sold into sexual slavery when she was just a child, and endured torture and rape in Phnom Penh brothels, until she escaped with the help of a foreign aid worker. Instead of distancing herself from the past, Somaly Mam set up AFESIP (Acting for Women in Distressing Situations), an organisation that helps victims of sexual slavery empower themselves and regain their dignity. Mam shares with us her hopes and dreams for the future, and tells us what keeps her going.

    Khoo Swee Chiow

    From Scotland’s Ben Nevis to Mt. Cook in New Zealand, Mt Damavand in Iran to the spectacular Mt. Everest, no mountain proved high enough for adventurer Khoo Swee Chiow, who scaled eight peaks in just as many months as part of the AirAsia Altitude-X Expedition. The father of two speaks to us about his love for majestic peaks and what sparked his passion for mountaineering.

    Dino Ferrari

    As a child, winner of the inaugural E&O Search for AFC’s Next Celebrity Chef, Dino Ferrari was glued to the TV, but not to cartoons like most kids his age. Instead, the charming chef spent hours watching cooking programmes, picking up skills that now stand him in good stead. He shares with Travel 3Sixty° his inspiration and what cooking ‘Dino-style’ is all about.

    Pablo Ientile

    Be it Kuala Lumpur, Tokyo, China or the Philippines, illustrator Pablo Ientile draws inspiration from typical Asian scenes to fill the pages of his sketchbook. Having started his 10-country tour in Kuala Lumpur on September 15 last year, Ientile has camped on couches in the homes of strangers across Asia – all in the name of his Illustration Around The World project. The project, which follows the main character – the bear Pablo – on his journey, also features the work of illustrators from the countries he visits.
